My wedding is consisting of 79 adults, 5 kids & 7 babies. While I do see the benefits of not doing a seating chart (mostly less stress for me), I see major benefits for doing table assignments. There are going to be several people there who don't know anyone else (and I thought grouping them by age & interests), large families, I wanted to put special wedding favors out for the kids (and not get any of the adult's wedding favors), not to mention his mom's 2 previous husbands plus her current one will all be there. I just don't understand her logic. I immediately emailed back letting her know I think it is necessary. I know the major consensus is to have table assignments, I just wanted to see if any one can provide input so that I can think of it from a different perspective?
