  1. Everything I’ve read has said max  8 per 60 inch table and 10 per 72 inch table, not to burst your bubble. :-/ But you don’t want your guests to be smooshed.

The most I would do is 8 to a table, it does get squishy with more then that!

8-10 people per 60″ round table is very tight. Our venue recommended max 8, but preferably fewer, per 60″. We’re aiming for 6-7 people at most tables.

8.  I had one table with 9 because I needed one more seat at that table, and it was fine, but I’d recommend sticking with 8.

@SweetWildflower1:  The circumference would be 188 inches. If you divide that by 8 people, each person is getting a width just shy of 2 feet of a circular table (And smaller than that into the table!) That sounds like just barely enough room for you to fit the settings and not have people on top of one another. I agree with the PP, 6 to 7 sounds good.
