At my church, the usual custom for the reception is basically standing room only. That is, tables are not set up for people to sit and eat. I've seen this at other weddings so this may be standard procedure.
We would like to have some tables set up.
The question is, how many?
We have large families, me, my husband, the groom, so we are planning for 150 people. I'm the kind of person that would always rather have way too much than too little.
So, is it okay if we only set up, say 8 or 10 tables?
Each table seats six. The more tables, the more the cost. Tablecloths, centerpieces, chair covers.
Or, do we have to try and accomdate all 150 people?
Oh, we are serving cake of course and a few more finger foods, not a full meal.
