We’re having round tables at our wedding and they’re the standard 60″. We’re planning to seat either 8-10 people at each table. 10 might be a little tight, but I figure in the grand scheme of things it’s not going to be that big of a deal. We need all the seating we can possibly get for our tons of freaking guests.

I think ours were 60″. They told us 8-10 people and we ended up mixing up the numbers. Some tables actually only had 6 and others had all 10 but most had 8. The 10 tables looked a bit crowded but I don’t think people were too uncomfortable. I basically sat down, did the seating chart and shot for 8 at each table and that gave me a bit of wiggle room on either side. I’d try to minimize the number of 6s though. I think we had 2? Mostly those were family friends that didn’t know anyone else there and it would have been awkward to just throw another pair of people they don’t know at the table when the other pair could sit with their friends elsewhere.

We went to the reception hall and set up the tables the night before and moved some chairs around and told the caterer to put at place setting for each chair.

@twfcah2009: I would go for 8 as at the tasting event 10 was a bit too cramped. Though on the main table we’re having 10. We’ve even got a couple with 6 on.
