i have a family friend who is lending me round tables for my wedding. Problem is the tables are only 4ft. They would seat 6 people (8 if i squished them, which i don’t want to do). I have to fit a lot on the tables (centerpeices, water jugs, candles) and i’m thinking i won’t have enough space.
How many people did you fit per table? For those of you who sat 6-8 people per table, do you have photos of your table setting? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I’m using 8ft rectangular tables, and seating 4 or 5 people at each, so that doesn’t help much =[

My tables are 72″ round tables and we are seating 10 people per table. So I’m not much help either :

The tables at our venue seat 6 people. I don’t know the dimensions, though, since they’re part of the space. We like the smaller tables with low/small centerpieces so our guests can actually talk to everyone they’re seated with.
And I apologize about the lack of pictures–we haven’t done the mock ups with the venue yet and I’m having trouble finding images online of other folks’ weddings there.

Our tables seat 10 people, but we’re aiming for 8 per table. Cramped seating is my pet peeve as a guest so I don’t want to do it to mine.

We are having six per table, worst case seven. Our tables are bigger than four feet across though… are you sure that’s the size? It sounds small for six or eight people…?

We’re having 6 – we’re doing rectangular tables tho – some tables may even have 5 if the numbers work out better that way. This is another wedding that was held at our venue that we will be setting up the same – not your traditional bridal set-up thats for sure.

Our tables are 5ft across circular, and the venue recommends 8 people per table. We will likely end up with 8 at most tables, and 7 at others.

@sharontobemarried: Our tables were 5′ and our venue recommended 8 per table but I thought that would really squish everyone in so I only did 6 and it worked lovely.
I think it would be a bit tight to put 6 people at a 4′ table. I would probably limit it to 4 adults and maybe a child or two if necessary.

Thanks for all your help everyone!
I’ve decided to hire rectangular tables as i feel my guests are going to be pretty squished at a 4ft table.
