    Hi All

     

    Perhaps this might be of some use for working out your table plans:

     

    www.weddingseatplanner.com

     

    It a free little tool that works out the best possible seating plan for your wedding (i.e. it keeps enemies apart, puts friends together etc.)

     

    Regards

     

    Fifibell :-)

      We are doing 1 long table too.  I think it is nice because the people who know each other will be in and around each other and there are no awkward miss matched groups at round tables.  We can't decide whether we will sit at an end or in the middle but I think we are leaning toward the middle..... not sure!!!! Any suggestions from past brides?  Bondgirl your table looked amazing!!!

        Thanks so much sweetie! We loved sitting in the middle because it gave us a full view both ways (and really, it was better for toasts/etc. because that way people weren't stretching over each other to see us! I wouldn't have done it any other way! It was perfect for us and I'd highly suggest the set up. It felt very VIP :) Good luck and if you have any questions just let me know.

          Bondgirl: Your setup was amazing! I have been thinking of doing one long table, but was worried about the social aspect as well as how many it would seat. How many were you able to seat at this table?

          I did one long table for my wedding and it wasn't difficult to be social at all. I guess it really depends on your wedding party as well as energy levels, but besides for dinner, everyone was up dancing and moving around anyway. It was a really sleek look and I was thrilled how it turned out! Good luck!

            Hello! We had 36 people and it worked out completely fine! Most of our group was energetic, ready to dance and have a great time. The only time we were all seated was for dinner/the toasts so people were up and moving around the whole time anyway. I thought it had a really sleek look and I was interested in doing something that wasn't so traditional as round tables. My fiance wasn't sure at first (he thinks in a more traditional way) and when he saw it he LOVED it. We both were really happy with our choice and even choosing the black linen really made the flowers and candles pop!

            We also are only going to be having one long table.  We are going to sit in the middle and going to do name cards for the seats.

                I am now thinking that I should do this for my rehearsal dinner and round table for my actual reception! ;o)

                  Bondgirl, your table is now my inspiration pic!  Thanks so much for the input.  I am getting so excited but I have to wait another 6 months!!

                    The table arrangement is really nice! It can be really sociable.
