@Mulan05:  Why would you want more tables?  To take up more room?  To make obstacles for people to move around?  If they’re standard banquet rounds, 8 WILL fit comfortably.  We had 9 at some tables due to some people RSVPing without a +1, kids, etc.


It sounds like your Fiance doesn’t have an actual reason for wanting to do this…. 


Does he understand the extra cost and effort this will result in?  Tell him to handle it – LOL!

As long as the tables are large enough to seat 8 (which it sounds like they are), I’d actually prefer 8 to 6.  We had some no-shows and last minute cancellations that resulted in two of our tables only having 5.  They looked sparse and the people were far apart from each other.  We also noticed that a lot of the people from these tables migrated to other tables because there wasn’t a lot of interaction going on.  The more full tables seemed to have a lot more conversation and activity.

Full tables look better and make people more comfortable and social. Empty tables feel like you are at a bad party. If he wants the room to full, just move the tables a few more feet apart.
