    @kjo:  I think it’s a good idea to have assigned tables.  I did it to avoid the whole “Oh, is someone sitting here?” and possibly having to split up couples.

    @Brideonabudgetlauren:  +1, I’ve only been to one wedding without a seating plan and it was really awkward.

    If you do it and put some thought into it, things will definitely turn out better.  They’re not as much of a P in the A as people think, especially because you’re guest list is less than the average wedding.

    @kjo:  Do a seating plan… you don’t have to orchestrate who sits next to each other, but if you assign tables then it’ll make it much more easier.

    As previous posters stated, you can have assigned tables and from there the guests can choose the particular seat they would like. I’ve been to weddings without assigned tables and I felt like it was free-for-all once the reception was open. I felt like I had to race everyone to the tables to make sure my FI and were together or if you got up people would play musical chairs lol

    i really do think assigned tables would be so much easier for your guests. 

    it eliminates that whole feeling like you’re back in the high school cafeteria looking for a place to sit.

    Since your not having dinner, I would avoid all the work it takes to put a seating chart together. GL
