    Our wedding is for 24 of us.....and I am really not sure how to set out my tables....there are 6 of us in the bridal party....then their partners, and so i would really like all 8 of us together on one table, then possibly setting out 3-4 more tables with 4 people on each.
    Then i saw a banquet setting, and i really like this idea, it means we all sit together, and as theres only 24 of us, it wouldnt have to be a mile long table.....
    I saw this and thought this looked lovely. I think this is my favorite.

    Or possibly 8 of us on a table like this, with 4 smaller tables of 4

    or a square with a gap in the middle.....this would be good for putting a table in the centre with the cake on...

    There will be nearly 50 at our breakfast so we will be having the top table with 5 round tables for the guests. Most important people will sit on the tables closest to the top table.
    I do like the table on the first picture. Very nice. xxx

    I like the big banquet table the best - i think its perfect for your numbers
    Not keen on the table with the gap in the middle - makes me think of a conference

    There are so many people out there who will tell you
    what you can't do.
    What you have to do is turn around and say, "watch me"!!

    nicsquared you are right....LOL it DOES look a bit confrence-y doesnt it?
    yes i really like the top picture, and with only 24 people, we wont be too far away from the people at the other end.
    I think if i was having 50 people, i would be the same mrsbroady2B. the bottom picture IS actually the room we are having, so theres room for any way we want it, but i really like the top picture best.

    I also like the banquette setting best - I quite dislike separate tables and would have loved a U shape for our wedding but not really possible due to wooden beams in the room. We'll have a few big tables all mismatched in size.

    It’s so great to find that one special person
    you want to annoy for the rest of your life....

    I like the first idea and if my guest list didn't keep bloody getting bigger I would have similar I am having a top table then 6 tables of about 8 in a semi circle all facing top table so no tables are at the back if that makes sense x

    Woohoo I'm Mrs Holkham!!

    lysblac...yes i agree and i think the brides have spoken and thats what i am going to go with.
    i think it will look neater than tables dotted here and there with just 4 people on them......with just 24 people we can all talk and eat together, no-one feeling out of it

    I like the first one best, the third with the gap in the middle is ok but you'd have a job getting over the table to cut the cake

    i went to m nieces wedding in 2010, she had it at Normandy hall raggedy anne they had the top table along the top and 2 long tables down the middle they wasn't joined so not exactly like the u shape but looked really good made every one close but still room to get a round if you are only having 24 people i would have everyone on one table would look really intimate.

    You could still section the table in names? I think I will section my bigger tables with names.

    Well maybe i will just put out the menu's short distances apart, and just have the names on the back of them as i was going to, i just wont really need a table plan. Well i WILL have a table plan, but just not using the names as guidance.
