Sure, start now and fill in as you go.  Just use a pencil or computer so it’s easy to make changes.

i did up a mock version just to have an idea of who will be sitting with whom but of course things will change when rsvp’s come back as declined.

wedding wire has a great interactive seating chart.  i used it and printed it off for my venue.

You don’t have to actually draw the circles, just make lists of 8-10 each, depending on your tables.

I started mine awhile ago when I was bored in an excel spreadsheet. 🙂 Now that we’re getting back RSVP’s I just update accordingly. It’s never been a serious thing so when we get the final numbers we’ll have to sit down and really figure it out. Especially for his family, I didn’t even so much as start that side. I still can’t even remember all their names! LOL!

I am very visual so I got a poster board at the dollar store and drew circles in the order that that they would be set up in the room. I also wanted to make sure that the tables were set up in such a way that everyone could see us at our sweetheart table. There are these pillars in the room unfortunately and so not everyone will have a perfect view. But we don’t have all of our rsvps yet but I have a pretty good idea of who will be coming. I had two colors using post-its that you use to flag pages in a book, one color for definite people and one color for maybes. That way I can easily see who may be movable or will be out completely. I just had one day when my brain was screaming to me about it and I had to see it with my own eyes so I did it in advance. Prob will have some changes, but better to have started on it and have an idea than scramble last minute I think

if you go on theknot.com they have a whole thing where you can add your guest list and do a seating chart… it’s been very helpful to me

Sure start now. You’ll obviously have to modify as you go along, but it would be nice to have a starting point.

We did ours the week before the wedding. In my opinion, you’d be wasting your energy to start before you have all the RSVPs in.

ETA: I did mine in Excel. I blocked off cells in rectangles using borders and filled in the cells with people’s names. A table that sat 8 had 8 cells in it.
