If you can afford it, you can add one more table and take one couple from two other tables or split up the family table into two.  Most 60″ tables hold 8 ppl comfortably.  You could have a couple tables with just 6 and it won’t look bad.  My daughter had the a similar problem but using 72″ rounds.  A few tables only had 8 instead of 10 but it looked fine.  It will add a little to the cost of table decor but worth it if it makes things better for you and your guests.  Good luck!

I would just split the group(s) up, so you mix tables – 4 at this table and 6 at this table, or 5 and 5 if they aren’t a couple. 

If people want to freak out about where they will be sitting for like 2 hours during dinner, they are crazy. They can mingle after dinner and talk to other relatives, etc. 

But if that doesn’t quite work…please feel free to share the problem areas and maybe we can help you out!

We don’t have an evenly divisible group, either. We ended up with mostly tables of 10, but with a few tables of 8, 9, and 11.

Ours was a pain too – we just decided to sit people as groups and as such, we’ve got tables ranging from 7 to 12. Oh well. I figure the tables are really only for sitting through dinner and then people will bet up to dance and mingle.
