You’ll probably find that you may want to mix them up, as per the people invited, the groups they are in, who knows each other, etc.

My sister did, at her wedding. Her work friends = 8, so they got one of the smaller table; friends from church and friends from hubby’s work = 10 each, so they got the larger tables. She ended up with one-third of the tables being larger.

@julesbeeb:  I don’t have any experiance with round tables, as we are using rectangle tables and having alot less guests than you, but this is the website I used to make my layout, you just put in your room measurements and you can drag & drop tables to where you’d like them.

This is our layout [so far]

@julesbeeb:  I have sat at a 60 inch table for 8 people and I didnt feel cramped at all- thats pretty normal. Is there enough room for 8 person tables- 22? Maybe they prefer you to use the bigger tables so you only need 17? or 15 I guess with the head table. Either is fine really and l think some of both would be good for the reasons PP already mentioned. 

ETA- fewer tables = fewer centerpieces… Maybe leaning toward more big tables now… 🙂

I would mix them.  Sometimes it makes sense to put a smaller or bigger group together
