When you're hosting a formal party you may hope that your guests mingle and hit the dance floor, but seating is a huge factor that needs to be considered. The last thing that you want is to fail to plan the seating properly and find that you do no have enough seating, or you have miscalculated and included too many seating options that create a cramped, crowded space. Most people opt for party seating rentals when hosting an event, since it is the most cost-effective option for securing enough seating and most party seating rental companies offer a wide variety of choices.
Event and reception centers have room occupancy limits for a reason. Too many people make it harder to evacuate the room in an emergency. The problem is bad enough when you're dealing with random people trying to get into a hot party or convention. But what do you do when the event is really your wedding reception or a graduation party in a smaller room at a center that hosts multiple events?
