Rather than putting the frames on the tables with one at each seat… just put them all in alphabetical order in a table near the entrance to the room.  Use them as escort cards and eliminate the seating chart.  Each frame should have a piece of paper with the person’s name and their table number.  That way they know where to go, but once they get there they can pick whichever seat they want.  And don’t worry about writing that people can keep the frames, they will know that.

Moose1209 said exactly what I was about to say!  Use the frames as escort cards instead of placecards and ditch the seating chart.

Agreed. Put them all together on the guest book table.

I did exactly what you are doing.  Yes assign specific seating for the wedding party table so that you dont have none wedding party sitting at it.  I wish I could change the fact that i spent so MUCH TIME on the place cards and putting them at the exact seats I wanted them at.  Some people didnt show and it looked funny with a place card and momento there for them.  Many of my guest moved themselves and it took them a long time to find where they are to be sitting because the family member i assigned to that dutie didnt do her job she hung out in the bar and gossiped.  The best advice i have is to only assign specific seating for wedding party table.  make the card/momento and put them on an entry table with someone there helping them find there name and explain to sit where ever they are comfortable except this table #1 which is the wedding party table.  More advice:  Assign more then one person to that duty and make sure they show people where your guest book is and where they need to sign!!  my book barely got signed because again my person in charge was at the bar.  Not to mention there are areas in the book that like the maid of honor fill out and none of that got signed or filled out.   sorry its long i just want to help others not make the same mistakes i made.    congrats and good luck
