The seating chart can be the most stressful part of planning the whole wedding, which is why we love communal tables so much. If you’re iffy about communal seating, read some of the major benefits to choosing this arrangement!
Communal seating is a great way to cut costs at your wedding. Since you’ll have fewer tables, you can save money on rentals and tablecloths. You’ll also have a lot less space to cover for table decorations, so you won’t have to worry about going over budget on those either. Plus you’ll save time since it’s easier to put together seating arrangements for a fewer amount of tables. And you know what they say: time is money.
Communal tables create an atmosphere of one large party, rather than dividing everyone up by 8 or 10 tops. It may seem counterintuitive, but by bringing in larger tables, the whole room will feel more intimate. And longer tables work well for a more modern aesthetic, though communal seating can easily be modified to work in almost any wedding setting.
