- Add a lounge - either in a quiet corner for conversation, or around the dance floor so guests have a place to rest their bodies or purses between dances.
- Add some architecture - columns, gates, or other elements - like trees - can take up a lot of space when brought away from the walls and into the room.
- Use square or rectangular tables - these take up more space than a round table.
- Seat fewer guests per table.
- Change up the configuration:
- We used clusters of rounds (15 - 18 guests) and 'barbells'. Note - this uses more linens, but less centerpieces.
- The dance floor was two levels and huge. The teens loved it!
Here is a 'spoke' layout. The kings tables radiate from the central table which seated the couple and their families.
Do you have any space or layout dilemmas? Leave a comment and I'll try to help!
Thanks for reading.
