I’m planning on long tables at our wedding, we’re pushing two 6 ft tables together to create long 12 ft tables. We were planning on 6 guests on each side.
We got ALOT more YES RSVPS than we were expecting so we need to squeeze a few extra people in. Would it be best to put an extra guest between the two tables (so 7 per side?) or add an end cap spot?
The other option we might have is: we have four 60″ rounds in the porch area, and were planning on 8 guests, could we squeeze to 9? I don’t mind the reception being cozy, but I don’t want guests to be uncomfortable.

Not sure if I am picturing correctly but end cap should be fine. My friend did this for her wedding and it was no issue.

We did endcaps for our long tables. I thought it was fine and gave more elbow/eating room than trying to add another chair to the side.

Great! That’s what I was leaning towards. Thank you!

When you say “between the two tables” do you mean someone sitting at the crease between the two long tables? If so, that sounds uncomfortable. Of your options, I would put someone at the end of the table.
