It depends on the tables- a lot of tables seat ‘up to 10’ but are a lot more comfortable with 8.  If you can comfortably fit 10 people such that they’re not bumping elbows all night, then I think it’s fine.

Depends on how fat the people are.

10 per table is a pretty standard setup. Can you check with your venue? I know ours had different sizes of round tables, some intended for 10 rather than 8 guests.

I think average is 8-10

Don’t put the 10 at the table if their is another way. A comfortable table is 8 people.

I agree, depends on the size of the table. For some perspective, the tables our venue provides are 60″ round – they told us they are meant to seat 10, but we tried that setup and….no way. We’re going with 8 so people have some room to breathe.

I think 8 would be more comfortable

Only put 8 people. 10 is too many for a 60′ round. The comfort of your guests will be worth the 2 extra tables.
