Setting the table.

I have been thinking a lot about wedding tables. I'm not exactly sure why. But I have been wondering:

- how many guests is too many to sit at one long table? I love the vibe that sends out, but somehow I think a wedding with 70-ish people might run into the realm of ridiculous.

- is a seating arrangement really necessary?

- if we don't do one looooong table, do we sit at a table with the wedding party? or by ourselves?

and, of course, most importantly:

how can I (cheaply) make the tables beautiful?

I love these photos of gorgeous-yet-acheivable table designs:
I love the burlap runner and simple flowers on this Sunday Suppers table

I love this table, designed for Project Wedding by Chelsea at Oh, my deer! for its vintage-print napkins and citrus fruits with pretty little flags. Oh, and can we talk about the happy tape banner?

Who doesn't love the ambience of candles? Via apartmenttherapy.
