    I think there’s a couple posts just this evening about this that got lots of responses.

    But for me, it was just not having my guests wandering around trying to figure out where to sit, and not having to worry about needing extra tables (and linens, and centrepieces) in case the multiples didn’t work out perfectly.

    Open seating can be awkward and tends to cause more problems than arranged seating.  For eg,

    *  if you go to sit down and then someone abruptly tells you ‘these seats are taken’ because they’re reserving them for friends and you walk around a few tables trying to find somewhere can be embarrassing.

    * if you have divorced people turn up later and have to sit on the same table it would be terrible. 

    * if you arrive last and there’s not room on a table for you and your SO

    Generally the bride and groom seat people together who they think will have something in common or will be able to communicate well together.  This is better than randomly having to sit with the groom’s old and ugly single uncles!
