I had a few tables that were 10 at 60″ rounds.  They were spread out more, but I got to the reception and Father-In-Law decided that certain people had to sit at certain tables.  It was really really tight, and we had an afternoon, non-meal buffet.

I went to a wedding last weekend with 5′ rounds with 10 people sitting at each. To be honest, it was a little cramped. I kept bumping elbows with the people next to me, as in, I couldn’t really move my arms at all without being in someone else’s space, and there really wasn’t any room for my plate. It was an afternoon buffet meal.

@lealorali:  can you do rectangle tables? Your venue may not have them but you could rent them. The ones we are getting are $10 each so it may not be a costly solution…. what does your floor plan look like?

We had 60″ with eight people and it was fine. A few weeks later we went to a wedding with eight at 60″ tables and a friend pulled up a chair to make nine at the table (it was very informal and no place settings so no big) and to be honest it started feeling cramped with nine at the table.

Don’t stress just yet.  Depending on how many declines you get, you may be fine with the number of tables you have, and also, maybe most of the tables can have eight people and then the few along the perimeter or in the back could have ten.

@lealorali:  Does the table layout have them in columns and rows, or on diagonals?  You may be able to fit in an additional table or two if they are staggered.

I personally would be upset about it, as a guest. I cannot stand people in my personal space, especially if I’m not really familiar with them. I’d be extremely uncomfortable all night.

I think we put 10ish people at 72″ rounds at my wedding, so I think it would be too tight at 60″.

Don’t do it. I went to a wedding like that I couldn’t lift my elbows out. It was awful.

We’re having 10 at all of our tables and some may have high chairs as well..so it’ll be tight. The venue recommends 8 but they have done 12 before, so 10 is possible, just a little tight. I figure dinner isn’t that long and maybe it’ll get people up on the dance floor! lol

@lealorali: Just because you are inviting 130 people doesnt mean they will all come. I would plan for 9 people per table. If you get 24 who RSVP no then you should be in the clear (8 per table)…is this 12 tables including you, FH and the wedding party (including parents?)

ETA- I see you invited 130 with 12 tables…so my math will be wrong, but you get my point.
