Do you think there is any point to having place cards/arranged seating? What are you doing, or what did you do?
I'm not doing a seating plan. I am getting married in 3 weeks with 32 people attending also. I asked for a U-shaped table at Calabash with everyone sitting on the outside so we could all see each other. I did not want to deal with a seating chart & kinda hard to anyway with a U-shape. There are no separate table numbers. We are just putting some "reserved seating for family" place cards & all the friends can fill in the rest.
