      We are having around 25 guests and we decided to have the bridal party sit at the head table with us and then split the rest of the guests up into 3 tables with assigned seating. We decided to do this for a number of reasons:

      1) We can place family members together and put people who we think would mesh well with one another together.

      2) I find that round tables allows for more conversation between all people at the table. Whe you are all sitting at a long table, the conversation is usually focused to the people directly in front of you...or to the side of you.

      3) I wanted to have a centerpiece for each table, not really a good reason LOL just a preference.

      We will have the place cards on the table. Since there are only 3 tables I'm sure it won't be too hard for guests to figure out where they are sitting. The reason why we are doing that is because we are having different favours for the men and woman and different for our underage guests.

      The only thing to decide on now is whether we want to have table numbers and then have a seating chart by the guest book. Don't know if it is necessary.

      I hope that helps :)

        I had 32 guest and I choose to have to the long table set up just because it was more intimate. We (the bride & groom) sat at the head table. My parents sat to my left. Best man & Maid of honor sat to the right. And everyone sat wherever they want. It was perfect because everyone got mingle during dinner. My guest didn't have to get up to go to the next table & the next....
