When you're preparing for a wedding, regardless of how big or small, knowing how many tables to rent can be an essential decision.  This is post is designed to help you with figuring out how many you'll need based on guest sizes.  (Featured above is the interior guest common area at the Villa near Zion National Park).

How Many Guests Fit at a Table?


As a rule, it's not a bad idea to anticipate about 6 or 8-foot banquet tables (that's our average per wedding). A good rule is that a 5-foot round table and an 8-foot banquet table will both accommodate 8 people.  The 6-foot long table seats 6 guests (i.e. roughly a foot per guest).


For the latest style combine banquet tables back-to-back to create a wider table with lots of room to decorate down the middle.


Thoughts: Wanting to show off your centerpieces?  Choosing the traditionally elegant 5’ round provides just the right amount of space for displaying decor and still providing room for plates and silverware.  As mentioned above, both the 5’ rounds and the 8’ banquets accommodate 8 people, whereas the 6’ banquet seats six.

You can also skip tradition altogether and design your event with trendy bistro, or cocktail tables (also called highboys). Bistro tables are lower, chair-height tables; cocktail tables are standing, or bar-height tables. We offer them both in round or square. Each table seats/stands 4 people. Cross-leg cocktail tables are used for those times you need an absolutely sturdy table to display your wedding cake or masterpiece. (We refer to them as Cake tables.)

Here's a Hack

 

One way to save on cleanup

If your event is less formal, we can save you loads of time and frustration trying to secure those cheap plastic sheets from blowing off in the wind. We actually recommend Kwik-Covers! It’s like a fitted sheet, but only for your tables. Save yourself time and the hassle of cleaning up afterward by adding Kwik-Covers to your order to make your event look even better and easy to manage.

 

Available in white or black for 5’ rounds and 6’ & 8’ banquets. (FYI: we do charge cleaning fees for the return of dirty tables, so the covers really are a great value.)
