@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)…

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…
