So our venue provides 72″ rounds free of charge. As such, we definitely want to stick with that option. I know ordinarily, this is supposed to seat 10.
However, we have been losing a great deal of people off our guest list and the majority of the tables have 8-9, which works for us. However, we have one that has 7. Will that look too empty with a ton of space in between each person? Based on the mathematics, unless I can find one more last minute taker, I will have to have at least one table of 7, or cut a table and redo the whole list and make it 10 at each table minus one.

Typically, 10 chairs is a tight fit. I doubt one table with seven chairs will be a big deal. Here’s an infographic that has a 72″ table with 10 and 8 chairs:

Our venue recomended we do 8 per table, because it’s more comfortable/we have a smaller guest list. A few of my tables will have 7 guests just because we have an odd amount of people. It wont look weird at all 🙂

I think that is fine! Save yourself the trouble of rearranging everything. Its not like all of your tables have 10 and one table has 5. The numbers are fairly close so it will not look out of place.

I had the same situation at my first wedding; it was fine. No one will complaint that they had plenty of space!
