Wedding Receptions: Long Tables

Wedding Receptions: Long Tables

Gorgeous décor ideas for long wedding-reception tables.

Using long, rectangular banquet tables in lieu of, or in addition to, traditional round tables is a fantastic way to add some edge to your wedding-reception décor. Decorating the lengthy surfaces requires a different approach than selecting a single centerpiece. Some of our favorite decor options include using flower arrangements of varying heights, incorporating a table runner for additional color, and adding candles for ambiance. The result is a symmetric masterpiece that is chic and elegant as well as practical. Plus, your guests will appreciate being able to converse with the person seated directly across from them. Take a look at our images of beautifully adorned rectangular tables from real wedding receptions, and see if you're inspired to go long.
