Rectangular, also referred to as ‘communal’ or ‘farmhouse,’ is a popular type of table shape used in Real BB Weddings. Similar to their round counterpart, rectangular tables seat 8 to 10 guests and typically measure eight-feet by 42-inches. We often see rectangular tables used in a mix-and-match reception layout, either with circular or banquet seating. We do want to point out that while rectangular encourages a relaxed and ‘familial’ atmosphere, socializing can be limited where guests may end up talking to the person sitting next to them. From a floral designer’s standpoint, what is so appealing about this type of table is how it offers ample surface for a variety of centerpiece styles and decor. It also wins major points for versatility and can be set up in the dining room of a private estate or in a chic industrial space. From lush, romantic garlands to posh and modern arrangements, here are beautiful centerpiece ideas for rectangular tables culled from the Real BB Wedding archives.

Congratulations! After months of meetings, phones calls, and emails, you and your wedding planner (if you have one) have mapped out the dining space in painstaking detail to determine the seating layout of your reception. Now it’s time to make an appointment with your florist to design the floral decor that will underscore the tone of your wedding and pull together the room. When we first talk with clients, we go over their desired wedding style, color scheme, favorite flowers along with any images they have pinned and saved for inspiration. At this point, they have a good sense of the shape, size, and layout of their tables with the most popular being round, rectangular and banquet. This information is important because certain types of centerpieces pair best with each kind of table.

If you are in the midst of planning a wedding, chances are you have put together a To-Do list laying out in detail all that needs to get done before the big event. To-Do lists help organize, prioritize, and track progress. However, when faced with a huge project, we often leave the hardest tasks to the last minute. Doing the easiest, least-time consuming things first gives a sense of accomplishment – until it doesn’t. Dread of what’s to come mounts, becoming heavier as the weeks go by.
