round or rectangular?

as i'm getting ready to finalize our table and chair rentals for the wedding, i realized i need to make a decision on the table shapes. 

i love the look of rectangular tables with a fabric runner and rows of plates.  it seems to make a strong statement to me of people gathering together.  it also seems very appropriate for an outdoor barn wedding, yes?

or round ...

i almost think round tables would require less in the way of centerpieces, which could make my diy list much more simple.  the softness of the round seems to also encourage conversation in a more natural way and with ease.  perhaps more intimate too?

what is your preference?  round or rectangular?  or maybe even a mixture of both?

i did round to keep my DIY list to a minimum, it really does help! and we had everyone sit at their dinner table for the ceremony so we didn't have to rearrange later. the round tables helped for people to turn around and look at the ceremony, but kept me from feeling like everyone was staring at me. :)
