Yes, you can still do that, but I’ve heard that a bunch of people won’t take them unless it has a table number or is attached to the favor.

Honestly, in my opintion, what causes confusion is the chaos of people trying to get seats together at an open seating wedding. The last weddings I was at with open seating, people were shoving each other to get to the tables and seating took forever.

I think the place cards is good because I know I have heard of weddings where peoples seats get taken because there is no place card and all open seating!

I just went to a wedding without assigned seating and I couldn’t even find a seat with my close family! I would definitely recommend doing assigned seating. I started mine already with http://www.socialtables.com and it’s been pretty easy!

@MissOtter:  Since you said that you’re hoping that your reception space will open to the outdoors, I presume that you are able to accommodate all of your guests indoors in case this does not occur. If so, I would encourage you to assign all of your guests to tables indoors and then, if you wish to add some outdoor seating, you could simply have those tables set up with linens and simple centerpieces and allow any guests who may wish to migrate outdoors at some point in the evening to do so.
