choose where they sit?
After all we are all adults! In fact a YouGov survey conducted in February 2006 shows :
•that an overwhelming 84% of wedding guests prefer assigned seating.
•preferred being assigned to a specific seat 51%
•preferred being assigned to a table (can choose any seat) 33%
•free for all – no seats or tables assigned 13%
•does not apply, do not/would not attend a wedding reception 3%
•The results were particularly clear for guests aged over 50, only 8% of whom preferred unassigned seating.
Unassigned seating sounds great in theory and it is certainly one less chore for the organizer. Unfortunately it rarely works out so well in practice.
There may be an unseemly rush for the good’ seats.
It will take a lot longer to get guests seated. They may still be milling around while the food is being served.
Your beautiful decor will be spoilt by people leaving their coats on chairs to reserve them.
The last few guests end up walking around looking for seats, a bit like the unpopular kid at school lunch.
Couples can get split up. It is not unknown for guests to end up eating outside the venue because they couldn’t get a seat together at a table.
Elderly relatives may end up seated where they can’t see or hear anything.
If people turn up uninvited (common in some cultures) they may take seats intended for your invited guests.
