Thanks everyone! I’ve decided to have assigned tables at the least!
Does anyone know how to make a assigned seating sign? I see all these PDF downloads I can buy, but I’m unsure where I would have something that size actually printed..

I would also do at least assigned tables, if not seats to ensure couples can sit beside one another.

My vote is for assigned seating. People can always choose to get up and change seats. But if you have any introverts on your guest list, not knowing where to sit is gawwd awful especially when everyone seems to clique up easily.

lindseyt311 : I think for that small, you wouldn’t need an assigned seating. My SIL did one assigned table which was the head table other than that others could sit where they wanted and her wedding was far larger than 35 people.

pinkcorsage : Do you remember the school lunchroom in middle school? That is what a wedding with open seating is like. You really learn for sure how much the people you know, want you around.
Don’t say ‘everyone at a wedding is a grownup and it isn’t middle school anymore’. Life is like middle school a lot of the time.

I was a guest at a wedding with about 30 people in attendance and there was no assigned seating and it went perfectly fine. We all knew each other anyway and just found our seats sort of organically. It will be fine, don’t sweat it!

lindseyt311 : I think it is pretty helpful to have at least assigned tables. I think you only really need assigned seats if you are doing a plated dinner or (like myself) have a lot of family drama that will take some strategic maneuvering of people to minimize any issues.

lindseyt311 : we just had escort cards that had the person’s table number underneath their name. Then they picked out their seat at that table. No signs needed!

We did assigned seats because we made english party crackers to crack open after brunch & thought it would be fun to make those into place cards too.
We had 30 guests total with us included. Since they were all family & very close friends everyone had an idea where they were going to sit ahead of time anyway.

- Wedding: October 2016 - Painswick Church and the Falcon Hotel
We had 50 day guests at our wedding and had a seating plan just so people didn’t have to figure it out for themeselves but I think your wedding could work fine without one

We did assigned seating for 18 guests. We had one long table.
