If there is any way around it please don’t.  My stepdd did and it was awful.  I was in the military as a career and at my last conference dinner they did 10 and it was the biggest thing complained about during the after action report the following morning.

At the conference there were bread and butter plates, drinks, dinner plates, coffee cups, the whole shebang.  If you have to do this, try to keep the tables as minimalistic as possible.

Good luck and I wish you just enough declines to make everything work out.

Could you do some pub tables by the columns?  Men sometimes like to stand and mingle.

Would 6 or 8 ft rectangular tables fit better/hold more people?

I use 60″ tables at work and I never put more than 8. I prefer it even better when I only have 6 or 7.

Could 10 fit? I guess. Would they be comfortable? Definitely not. I don’t even really know how you’d fit 10 formal place settings.

I’m just getting started with the planning and I am going to have a similar problem in that I am having an outdoor wedding and want to make sure everyone fits under the tent.  I was talking to the rental place and they said we could put a few tables on the dance floor for dinner and then move the tables afterwards.

I noticed that you said absolutely no tables on the dance floor so now I am wondering if what I am thinking about doing is tacky.

You could always get bar stools & pub tables for the younger [20’s] crowd, or if you have alot of children put up small kids tables.

If you move tables off the dance floor, where will these people sit if they want to visit with someone, eat cake, etc?

@lealorali:  I vote no. we have 60 inch rounds and there are only 8 at each. I don’t think you could put all the chairs in if you had 10
