Depends on the measurement of the table, but I was told that most people prefer 6″ on either side of them for comfort. (that measurement would be between the shoulders, not the plates)

If 10 is tight, then 9 will feel crowded as well. Go with 8 per table.

get the measurement of the table.. most round tables i have seen used in weddings so far were 60 inch. they seat 8 ppl regularly or 10 at a squeeze. i will still seat 10 ppl round my 60  inch table because ppl barely stay in their seats anyway i plan for there to be lots of dancing

How would you seat 9 people at a table? I’m sure for some tables it would be fine but what about couples? I feel like it would be easy to have 4 couples + 1 non-couple in that situation and could get awkward.

You can seat 10 max at a 72″ round banquet table however 8 would be much more comfortable.  Depending on what the event is will depend on how many guests you’ll want to seat there.  If you plan on having the guests stay at their table for a long period, then it’s a good idea to seat less guests so that they’re comfortable.

That’s what we had. 10 was a little tight, but it was fine. Once we made the seating chart all of the tables ranged from 8-10. It was impossible to get them all at one magic number, like I wanted.
