How many people can sit at this table?

17 Dec

When planning your event, it is definitely important to know how many people are able to sit around the table.  Here is a guide that you can go by when doing your guest seating.

30″ round – 2-3  people

36″ round – 4 people

42″ round – 5 people

48″ round – 6 people

54″ round – 7-8 people

60″ round – 8-10 people

72″ round – 10-11 people


This also depends on the size and the style of the chairs that will be set at the table.  Since your guests will be seated for the majority of your event, it is important to make sure that they are comfortable.

Are you ready to order your invitations?  Well, let’s talk about setting a RSVP deadline.  Your RSVP deadline should be at least two weeks before the date of your event.  By this time, most people have knowledge as to if they can attend your event or not.  Around this time as well, your venue may need a final count as to how many guests will be attending.

So what should you do if everyone has not RSVP’d?  Well you can either go with the number that you have received that have RSVP’d, or you can have someone call to confirm if guests will be attending or not.  It is best if you utilize someone who does not know you and/or your family.  This way the guests will feel more obligated to give a definite response of yes or no, instead of maybe.

Order Extra Invitations

19 Mar

I hope that you did not get frantic when you read the title of the post.  Ordering up to 25 extra invitations is a great idea and will help to keep your costs down.  How?

Through planning events for clients in the past, sometimes  a guest never received their invitation that was previously sent or a guest was mistakenly left off the guest list.  When these things happen if you have extra invitations they can be sent out to your guests.  If not, and if you have to go back to your invitation stationer/designer, it may end up costing you more money in the long wrong to order a couple extra invitations.  Remember invitation are better priced in bulk than individually.  So order up, it will benefit you in the long run.

Mailing your Invitations

20 Feb

  • Ordered your invitations – CHECK
  • Received your invitations – CHECK
  • Love your invitations – DOUBLE CHECK
  • Know the cost of mailing your invitations – …………not sure?

When mailing out your invitations, make sure to take one complete invitation in to the post office so that it can be weighed.  That way  you can have a better idea on how much will be the full cost to mail out all of your invitations to your guests.
