I’m in the same boat!! I don’t know if I should do a seating chart or not. I have only been to a few weddings, and neither of them had seating charts or anything like that. I’m having my ceremony in a restaurant/lounge so I’m not sure where I should seat everyone cuz there’s a fair amount of booths. I look forward to seeing other people’s opinions on this matter!

I am a fan of seating charts… It can get awkward if a family of 4 wants to sit together, but there aren’t 4 seats open at 1 table because you’ve let people choose their own seats.

That’s just how I feel about it though and I do know lots of people who haven’t done seating charts and haven’t had a problem! Could the kids each sit with their respective grandparents? Just so they know someone? I don’t know anything about your kids, how old they are, etc… That would make a difference on who I would seat them with.

Do a seating chart! Why? Because #1 it’s less awkward for people. When there’s no seating chart it becomes very “school yard” of who sits where. #2 you can make sure all your tables are filled up. When people sit themselves you can have random seats left unfilled. and #3 it’ll make serving the food easier if you know what table has what food coming to them. and #4 you can ensure everyone is sitting with people they know.

Please do a seating chart. It makes everything so much less awkward and more comfortable for your guests. My biggest piece of advice is don’t over think it. People will be sitting eating together for probably 45 minutes and then up dancing – not enough time for serious meaningful conversation where people get to really know each other. But, enough time where guests shouldn’t be worrying about where to sit.
