Of course, 8 is ideal at 60″ tables….. but here we are a few days before the wedding and a bunch of people are too sick to come, so I am having to rearrange the seating plan. With 8 people at the rest of the tables, I have 4 people left. So, 7 per table or 9? I’m a little worried that with just 7 people, conversation won’t be very good because there will be a lot of space between chairs. What do you guys think?????
FWIW the chairs are the standard (cheap) folding white metal/fiberglass ones. Not the very skinny chiavari ones nor the wider wooden “garden” chairs.
Thank you so much!!!!!

@scdesign: I would do 7. 9 gets pretty tight at those tables!

I agree with 7. We did 8 at 6 ft rounds and the space between chairs was perfect. GL!

Our tables were 72″ round and we got a family of nine seated without any hassle of comfort. I would suggest 7 -8 tops for the size of your tables.

7- our venue coordinator recommends fewer people at tables- much more comfortable.

7. We did 72″ rounds and have 9-10 people per table, I think it would be too tight at anything smaller!

Thank you all!!! Looks like the consensus is 7. Will do 🙂
