60’ round table (adults)

Hi there, I’m 29 days out from my wedding and seating chart planning has started. Wanted to know how many adults can sit comfortably at a 60’ round table? I googled this and some websites says 6-8 others say 8-10. To give a little more context, there will not be any chargers or place settings on the table. I’m thinking of seating 9 adults at one of the tables (the rest will be 8 per table) and wanting to know whether that would be comfortable for them.

    This is what we did. Most of our tables had 7 or 8 but hubby’s friends were a group of 9 and we didn’t want to separate anyone and put them with people they didn’t know. When we went over for table visits it looked like they had plenty of room so I think you’ll be okay.

    I'm planning on doing this too, most of our tables will have 8 people but we have a random odd single person who will make 9 at a table. I think it would be fine.

    Our venue says the 60” rounds seat 10, but we saw a table set up like that and it’s definitely a bit of a squeeze. I’ll probably try to seat 8 or 9 at each of mine and only do 10 at a table if I have no other choice.

    Oh that’s good to hear. I have one person that is an odd one out and didn’t want to sit this guest with people they don’t know

    Yeah it’s interesting because some sites are like no more than 8 people and other sites says up to 10 so I was concerned but it looks like a lot of other brides are seating 8 a table with one table being a 9 person so I’ll go with that instead

    My venue has 60" rounds and they put 8 people at each. They could squeeze 10, but it wouldn't be comfortable.

    Our venue's rules stipulated a maximum of 8 people per 60" round table, otherwise would have been too crowded and uncomfortable. One of the reasons we decided to upgrade to 66" round tables was because we had a couple of tables that needed to seat 9 people due to the groupings. This was also 2 years ago before Covid was a thing... given that we're still in a pandemic, I'm really not sure I would try to crowd more than 8 people at a 60" table.

    Most of my tables are at 8 ppl. There is just one guest that I need to squeeze in somewhere so there will only be one table with 9 people

    I really think it depends on how much stuff you will have for table settings. If you have multiple water & wine glasses along with chargers the table could get a little crowded. I would put no more than 8 people at the table. You have to consider the legs of the table will be in the way for 4 people at the table. If you need to have tables of 9 I would get 72" round tables.

    I think shooting for 8 per table is ideal, and you have room to add in a 9th person without it being too much of a squeeze. Your plan sounds perfect!

    During COVID, my guests were happy to sit 6-8 persons per 60" round instead of 10. I added votives and thicker floral centerpieces.

    Our venue told us we can fit 8 comfortably and 9 if we needed to but that 10 would be too much.
