I have been at a few weddings where there is no seating chart and I have always disliked it. At one wedding my family had to split up because there were no more tables with 5 spots. At the another wedding there were only 4 people at a table set for 12 (my husband and one other couple). It might take a couple of extra hours of your time but I think it provides a more comfortable enviroment for the guests.

Also wanted to note that at one of the weddings the guests found out ahead of time that there was no seating chart. When the doors opened everyone charged in trying to make sure they got to sit by who they wanted. It reminded me of lunch time during grade school.

If you don’t want to assign seats you could always assign tables. Like Mrs. Beck said – often families are split up or grandparents are stuck in the back because they didn’t move fast enough to get a prime spot. Plus with seating charts you can make sure all those at the table get along in some aspect (you can also mix up the sides if you want people to talk and mignle – but without it being overly awkward). I hate weddings without seating charts – they are awkward and stressful.
