Has anyone seen this done, or done it? I have been tossing the idea around for awhile but I can't seem to decide. What do you think of the idea of mixing the table types?

    We are doing a mix, as well. This is the layouts I'm looking at right now.

    Yes it's very common! Our venue only has rectangle tables though so we are combining them and making them closer to a square shape.

    We’re doing the same. It breaks up the room nicely and is a lot more interesting than all rounds

    Thank you! I'm really glad it worked out for the space that we had.

    Yeah, I think that maybe you could do it if you did a rectangle for your head table or a long table off to the side and then round tables in the middle and have it still be beautiful, but if you have them scattered I think it might be too much. It's your wedding, do what feels right! Best of luck!!Smiley smile

    I had never even thought about that. It could make it almost clunky looking with the tables spaced so far apart. hmm.. so many things to think about.

    That looks beautiful! I do like the interest the two different shapes add to the space, and the idea of everyone sitting together is nice.

    The middle one is what I was thinking of! I like the variety of the different shapes but it might be so different actually being in the room.

    Its a pretty good sized venue, the guest list is at 160 right now, so I am guessing 20 tables? I want to keep it elegant romantic and I was worried it might be to overwhelming and rustic.

    We did it for our reception. We had a small guest list of less than 35 people, but we had two long tables that seated 14 people each and then two smaller round tables - one for us and one that seated 4 people. It worked well for the size of the space that we had. You can see from our picture, the round table in front and one of the long rectangular tables towards the wall. Having the smaller round tables in the middle worked well because it allowed more space to navigate the room. Mix of round and rectangular tables 4

    I think it could be neat but it may also cause space issues.They would need to be set really far apart from one another due to their different sizes and people needing to be able to navigate around the room.

    How big of a venue do you have, and how many tables? It would probably look pretty cool if there was an even amount of everything, but what kind of theme are you going for? Because if it was more of a rustic style, the different tables scattered would be cool, and you could do unique centrepieces to tie it all together..but if it's a smaller venue I'd say go with just one...if you mix it up in a smaller area it may be a bit overwhelming!
