Your reception is going to be the longest part of your wedding. From the decor details to the furniture, how you choose to display your tablescape will have a huge impact on the tone of the evening. While long, communal tables have been used for lavish royal affairs throughout history, they provide a relaxed and flexible setting for today’s couples to work with. And that dreaded task of putting together the seating chart? Compared to smaller round tables, they are easier to arrange guests in a way so that everyone feels equally welcome. Basically, you wont be faced with the question, “Who are we going to put at the far corner table?”

When it comes to floral decor and styling, the long tablescape offers a myriad of creative possibilities. We combed through the Real BB Weddings archives to find our favorite designs. From show-stopping centerpieces that soar to flourishing garland trailing from end to end, here are fifteen beautiful long tablescape ideas to consider for your wedding reception.
