    @abales45:  I’ve never heard of someone not following a seating chart!! Is this common where you are? I think people are understanding of the fact that a seating chart is necessary, and if you are seated away from someone you want to spend time with, you do so during the dancing after dinner is served. 

    I definitely think you should make a seating chart!! Hopefully everyone will abide by it. I agree with you, that would be so rude if people just decided to sit wherever they want!

    I’ve never heard of people not following a seating chart and I think it’s one of the rudest things I’ve ever heard!! So someone will go to sit at their table and there will be no seats left?! Ridiculous. Make your seating chart and hopefully anyone who doesn’t follow it will look/feel like an idiot.

    Make the chart. If people sit wherever they want that’s the height of rudeness and i would publicly shame them hahaha. No, i’m just in one of those moods today, but i would definitely make it, unless people are going to move around the place cards which would make a very big confusing mess. hopefully they dont do that!

    Make the seating chart. If they don’t follow it, they don’t get their meals. The people who do follow it will have the others move. Make sure your venue or DOC or whatnot has a list of the seating arrangement, so if there’s any questions, they can take care of this for you.


    I worked a wedding as an assistant DOC, and the couple had a slightly confusing seating plan (no table numbers) and that list was a Godsend!

    EDIT: When I say they don’t get their meals, I mean they won’t get what they asked for, not that they won’t eat.
