Why can’t you assign tables? Maybe you can do little table tents that say “Reserved for the Mother of the Bride” etc. and put them on the plate where you’d like to seat them and assign a bridesmaid “hostess” to tell the other guests that they can sit anywhere besides table 1 and 2 or whatever?

It’s very common in my area to have open seating but reserved tables for famly and the wedding party, honored guests, etc. Since your having a smaller number of tables, maybe take the one or two tables you’ll want reserved and have them feature a slightly different centerpiece. Often, weddings I’ve worked have some nicely crafted ‘Reserved’ sign on them, but if you don’t want to save the whole table but instead have particular seats, I like the PP’s suggestion of place cards only in those specific locations.

No I think guests would get the hint. If you have 2-3 tables that say reserved they won’t sit there. But if there are other tables without numbers or “reserved” they will just sit there. Plus not everyone will have a seat (which is normal for weddings I go to) so people will be standing anyway.
