Seating - anyone used a large square setting?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anyone has used a big square table? If so, how did it work for you? We were always thinking of rounds, but our guests don't fit nicely into rounds of 8, so we were considering one big square table.

 

Thanks a bunch!

I am doing the sq setting, since we have 24 guest attending. I think the sq setting is a good way to keep guest apart of the wedding and every one can talk w/o going from table to table

I love the square setting seating. But it really depends how many guest you will have. I think it's nice if the party is no more than 30-40 people. that way, everyone can see the bride and groom and vice versa. If it's a round robin style, then you can arrange the dance floor in the middle and the guest can watch. It'll also give you a chance to learn to ball room dance.

We had 20 people and used a big rectangle - it worked great! It really kept everyone together instead of seperated. I loved it :)

search for NYJen's photos too, she had long tables and it looked awesome, if you need a little inspiration.

The large square setting is great if you have under 30 guests.... we have done weddings with this set-up and it is a really nice intimate setup because everyone can see each other and be completely engaged in the experience.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
