We had 60 inch rounds and 8 was comfortable.  9 would have been incredibly tight and uncomfortable, and 10 would have been completely miserable.

We fit 8 adults to a 60″ table comfortably.  9 probably would have been okay if at least one of them was a little kid.

We also had a 48″ table that fit 6 adults.

jmcraig619:  We have 72 inch tables and we were told 8-10 people as well but when we went for our tasting on monday they said 8 per table which when I saw they layout I completely agreed. We aren’t having chargers or anything but chargers are usually bigger than the plates so I can see why they might say 9 is too many. Its not about shoulder space they are referring about. They are thinking the table settings (forks, knives, spoons, cups, plates etc). Did you pay for chargers or rent them? If you have to have them, I would say create more tables, if you don’t feel like you have to have them, get rid of the chargers and keep your seating plan the same! Good Luck!

ETA: Anyway you can get a table set up to see what it looks like before you can make a final decision?
