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! Photo by The Purple Chair Next question:...

    We'll end up with about 11 or so 60 inch round tables, plus our sweetheart table

    We don’t have our exact count just yet but roughly 15 tables plus our wedding party table. We are doing a mixture of long rectangular tables and round tables

    I'm thinking 10-12 tables will cover us all.

    We are sticking with 10 person rounds for the guests and then a LONG rectangle for the head table. Head table has to seat us and our 10 BMs and 10 GMs. We expect our dropoff to end up being around 150 so 14-15 rounds.

    It all depends on what the final number of guests that RSVP is, but I’m guessing about 15 tables that hold 8 people. Max number of tables we’d have if everyone showed would be 18.

    Currently we have 13 rounds planned (8-10 People), but Im going to ask the venue if they offer longer tables. They actually offer the tables chairs, linens, and centerpieces so I just need to check if long tables are included in this option.

    We're estimating 20-21 tables, 8 -10 each, including the sweetheart table and vendors' table. I'll know for sure in 2 weeks once all the RSVP follow up is done.

    Hi Erin Smiley smile Makes perfect sense! By a vendors table, are you meaning like the specific dessert table/wedding cake table setup by your baker/bakery vendor?

    We're only going to have about 7 tables for guests, 1 for us and the bridal party, and obviously the other tables for everything else.

    We aren't sure yet. This whole process is quite new. Our budget is also pretty small since David and I are paying for the whole shebang ourselves.

    I'll have to see what the venue offers. I'm hoping for round tables, the pictures show that. i'm having around 100 to 125 so it'll depend on how big they are.
