I’m becoming more of a wreck as every minute goes on. I had orignally planned for 12 tables to be at our reception, hopefully holding 10 people, but this last saturday I had met with oue Wedding Corrdinator and he told me that I would probably need 20 or 21 depending on the size of the tables and how many people. We are thinking about 150 people but I don’t want to buy a centerpiece for my Doctor Who wedding only not to use it. While Doctor Who merch is quite common, it is NOT cheap. I, now have to come up with 8 or 9 more tables. Which is going to be a mindbreaker because I have all of things planned that make me think of it. I’m even breaking my FI’s own rule for the children’s table.
On top of that, I now have to add more table cloths to be painted to the list of things my poor bridesmaids have to help with.
I might just be feeling this way because I haven’t fully gotten over the fact we pushed back the wedding a couple of months.

@FutureMrsHosmer: For 150 people, I do feel like 12 tables would be a squeeze, but 20-21 tables seems a little far out there. How large are these tables? My instinct was those round tables that fit 10 people per table (so you would be using 15 tables)…

I’m not sure, i’m getting the area of the tables from my WC. But he said that they only fit 8, 9 would be a squeeze and I don’t want anyone to feel like there isn’t enough space.

Most round tables fit 8 and that’s as tight as you would want to go for a dinner. 10 is really tight!

20 tables seems reasonable, especially if the tables are the ones that only fit 8 people.

@FutureMrsHosmer: 150 people divided by 8 people/table is 19 tables!
That number will likely go down once you get RSVPs back but you could always fill in the decor elsewhere! I bought 15 candelabras for 11 tables and used the rest on the cake table, bar, etc.
P.S. Please remember your Bridesmaid or Best Man don’t “have” to help with anything…
