Not a big deal at all, and I bet they can use a slightly smaller table.  I had tables varying in sizes from 6 people, 8 people, and 10 people.  Don’t sweat the small stuff!  People are only sitting to eat anyways!  My smallest table was my dad’s because he didn’t really have any friends or family to invite.

Not a big deal! When we were planning a formal wedding (since scrapped that plan and are doing a DW), we were going to sit parents at two tables of six each…it won’t look that odd at all.

I had tables ranging from 6-10. I tried to keep most around 8 but that didn’t always work. They were ten person tables but I put 8 to make it feel more spacious and our venue was large enough we didn’t need to worry about the number of tables. 6 people at a table looked a little bit empty in comparison to ten but it didnt’ matter. Seating charts are a HUGE HEADACHE as it is, so don’t make it worse by stressing too much! This was one of my least fav. parts of wedding planning

@MrsGatito:  can you not put other relatives at that table?  maybe an aunt or uncle on his side?

if not, just leave the table with 6 seats.

@MrsGatito:  don’t worry about it too much.  leave it at 6 then and focus on more important issues.
