    sunshadebride :  12 is the absolute max you can fit; but it’s a bit squished and i would avoid doing so if you can. 10 is what comfortably fits at a 72 inch table, and 8 is what is the minimum before the table starts to feel empty. so you can fit 8-12 people, with 10 being the ideal.

    If you’re using charger plates don’t go over 10. They take up way more space and the usual recommended with chargers is 8.

    I would do 8-10, especially if you plan on having chargers or any other table decor taking up room. I’d rather know guests have enough space to be comfortable than try to fit a max amount suggested. There are 10 rectangular 30×96 tables at the park we chose. Website claims each *seats 8 comfortably* but we went last weekend and I told Fiance there’s no way I’m ok cramming 4 people on each side. 6 per table seems to work perfectly.
