How many different tables will you have at your reception? Are you sticking with standard 8-10 person rounds, or switching it up with long tables? Don't forget - your total number of tables determines the number of centerpieces and tablecloths you'll need!

    9 round tables that will have 10 people to each table. Then our table which is a sweetheart table. So I guess technically there are 10 tables total.

    6 tables. A rectangular one for the sweetheart table and a rectangular one for the VIP table (parents and WP). We will have 4 guest rounds (2 on each side of the VIP table) for the rest of the guests. 4-6 ppl per table.

    We're hoping to have 13 tables total, including the sweetheart table, but it depends on the number of guests that RSVP Yes.

    7 tables and a bar! We don't have the typical venue as we're getting married in our favorite restaurant. FH and I love sitting at the bar when we go out to eat, so we are sitting with our wedding party and additional friends at the giant 30 person bar right in the middle of the space. The other 7 tables all fit different amounts of people: 6, 9, 11, 15, some 12 tops and a 4 top. It's pretty random, but works out great with the space.

    20-25 rounds depending on whether we'll have 8 or 10 people at each.

    Plus a sweetheart.
