Depending on the location, season, or venue of your wedding, you may have some options for different seating styles during your reception. The venue might already have other options, but to help think out of the box, we’ve provided some of our favorites!
The most popular seating arrangement are the classic round tables, where 6 to 10 of your guests will sit together for the evening.
Family Reception Style seating creates a closer environment having all your guests at one table. There is also the option of having a Sweetheart Table in the front, overlooking all of their guests.
We like to call this one “X Marks The Spot” because it’s a very unique set up if you have a wide room like this one. They also use different sizes of tables to keep it interesting.
Picnic tables are just separate rectangular tables standing alone. You can configure a lot of different styled seating being able to flip the tables on way or another.
U- Shaped reception style seating may be the only option to be able to fit all of your guest sometimes. It creates a similar feel to the family style, but puts more people in the area.
Mixed options can have a very memorable effect on your guests. We always encourage new ideas for our clients and here are some great ones:
Or you can always take away formal seating with using picnic blankets. How different!
