I really dread sitting down and putting one of these thigns together. Honestly, i feel like everyone in attendance gets along fine and is an adult so I don’t really see the point in having a seating chart. But, i was wondering if anyone out (whos already been-there-done-that) has opted out of the seating chart? How did it go? Would you make one if you could do it over again? Thanks bees

Every wedding I have been to, there have been no seating arrangements. Well… except for my cousin but they are loaded so whatever. I think it works just fine. Everyone finds a place to sit and it all works out. Friends usually save seats for each other anyway. Then again, these are at weddings where there are not enough tables to begin with to have a seating chart. They usually just reserve a certain table (if they’re smart) for their family.
If you don’t have a seating chart, I will recommend that you have reserved tables for your family in the FRONT! Famly doesn’t have a chance to go to the reception as early as the guests… because they’re taking pictures. So make sure they get the special treatment!
At one wedding, I saw poor grandmother standing (she was old and fragile) because there was no assigned seat for her. EVENTUALLY somebody got up so she could sit down. But can you imagine her standing there that whole time! How rude! I would have seated her, but I had no seat myself.

We aren’t having one. I can understand why you would need one if you were having a plated dinner but if that isn’t the case, don’t worry about it! Like you said, they are all adults.
