If this is any help.. for my 60’s we had 9-10 people comfortably! No chargers and not a ton of space but still fine.

We’re using all 72in tables and will have 10-11 per table. My coordinator said 8-12 can fit but 10 is usually the best spacing wise

lealorali:   We’re doing 8, but the venue has seated 12 at a 72″ round – it sure looked crowded to me.   We want guests to have elbow room.

MrsN14:  How did this go at your reception? We are debating up to 11 per table at 72″ rounds but nervous about space. Our venue wants us to try and keep the table count to 18 but I think we are going to be at 19. Any advice or pictures?

julesbeeb:  It worked out well! I looked to see if we had any pictures but there weren’t any that showed the full table. Most tables had 10, but some had 8 or 11 and as far as I could tell everything was great and the tables really didn’t seem crowded to me and there were water glasses, wine glasses, salad and dinner plates, etc. So I think 11 would be fine if you needed to. I just had really small centerpieces so they wouldn’t take up room.
