That's right. It's alllll about the tables. And fourteen of them to be precise, that's not even including the top table. I don't know if anybody knows how many guests have been invited to the wedding but we have 140 on the list and 10 extra for the wedding party. That is 10 people per table.
Yes, we will need big tables but not as big tables as some sites have you believe. A good source of mine told me that as a selling point some websites tell you that in order to have 10 guests around 1 table you need a 6ft round table, which you don't. The size you really need isn't much smaller but it is less pricey; you need a 5"6' round table. People say you roughly want about 1.5ft - 2ft per person around a table but that only matters if you are having a sit down meal with three courses and three different sets of cutlery with 2 different sets of glasses etc etc. and we're aren't. It's just a simple buffet I'm afraid people (with a seating plan).
You can hire tables or buy tables. From one site they are £8.50 for 3 days and from another they are £7.50 for 2 days. I can't decide how long we want them for. 3 days would be better do you think?
We don't know what formation we are having the tables in but the room is rectangle and I have no idea of it's size but another wedding I went to that was in a similar sized room had 16 round tables; a top table and a foooooood table, so I think we will fit in or at least manage.
I was talking to a friend today about how paranoid I seem to be getting that something is going to go wrong on the day and I am just going to freak out etc etc but they said that nothing is going to go wrong at least nothing that I will see anyway; which boosts my confidence since she is my co-ordinator on the day and sort of move around-er. I put my trust in Carolyn because hey she is my friend and my boss so I know Carolyn can get things done.
