- Wedding: April 2013
I’m struggling with how many hi boy tables we should rent for our cocktail hour…
The last wedding I went to didn’t have enough hi boy tables and sitting areas for everyone which was terrible. People in heels wanted to sit down and all my girlfriends wanted a hi boy table to sit their purses/cameras on while drinking so I really want to make sure I have enough. Sadly I haven’t found a magic formula for this.
We have 250 invited, planning on ~200 coming. Venue provides:
10 cafe tables & chairs – seat 4 people each = 40 seats
2 couches – seat 3 people each = 6 seats
We rent 24? hi boys, – room for 4 people to stand at = 96
That gives 142 people a place to stand or sit. Is that enough? Should I rent more hi boys or find another couch or something? We are doing family pictures during the cocktail hour so people will be coming and going in the room plus the people that would linger around the bar.
