60 inch rounds are a bit tight for 10 people. it’s doable but technically 60 inch tables are meant for 8 people, and 72 inch rounds are meant for 10 people. we’re doing 72 inch rounds for 10. one thing to consider is how much time you envision your guests spending at the table. if it is a big dancing crowd and people won’t be sitting too much anyways, maybe you’d be ok with the smaller tables. if there will be a lot of sitting happening, i’d go with the 72 inch. is it possible to have a mix of them both? seat older guests that will probably spend a lot of their time sitting at the table at the bigger tables, and younger people that will be up and dancing at the smaller tables.

We are actually doing two regular banquet tables put together. They are 5’x8′. They fit up to 12 people. If you’re doing a less formal dinner, I bet a normal banquet table would still fit 10. It would be a little tight across since it would be 30 inches, but less formal dinnerware would mean smaller settings, so it could work.

Personally I like to have my space and after seeing 8 people seated at 60 inch rounds, I wouldn’t want to seat more then 8 at them!  I’d go with the 72 inch rounds if you want to seat 10.

I’ve always heard what the above posters have said:
60 inch tables = 8 people; 72 inch tables = 10 people

Another option could be going with rectangular tables if you’re open to using them.

Sorry, that didn’t show up too clearly.

If you want a better picture, pm me your email, and I will try to send you a copy of the word document that I have it in.

@phxgal10: Our tables are 60″ rounds and we were told that they’ll seat 8-10, but they suggested 8/table as 10 is very crowded feeling.
