It’s easier to do a couple of extra centerpieces/table names ahead of time than to scramble at the last minute.

You can always place the centerpieces in the bathroom, on the bar etc.

@csteen85:  How many folks you sit at a table really depends on the size of the table.  I would like to note that most catering halls recommend sitting 8-10 people per table.  Twelve folks seems like a lot to me for a variety of reasons including becing cramped, overwhelming the wait staff, making it difficult for folks to talk since the sheer size of the table will bring folks father apart from one another.  

You might want to go through your guest list now and just do your seating as if everyone rsvp’d yes to see how many tables you will need.  Like PP said, better to have more centerpieces than less.  Also, I don’t know about you but I know that I will probably have uneven numbers of folks at the tables for my wedding just because of family dynamics.  

Good luck!
