    I definitely do not think it is necessary. I think you get to do whatever you want, its your day, but for me that's part of having a destination wedding is that everything is more laid back.

      Thanks for your help guys. I dont think I need them but my immediate family wants to be sure to have the seats closest to us. Do you think it would be ok if I just put reserved on the table for our immediate family?

        I don't think the group is big enough to really worry about it, especially if you don't mind where everyone sits. I've also seen some people use place cards solely for parents and the bridal party & then the rest of the seats be free for all.

          for a small party you are better off letting them sit wherver and work it out on their own

            I had 24 people at our wedding and I did not bother.  Everyone was able to work it out very easily from what I was told.  After we arrived at the reception the photographers "borrowed" us for a couple of sunset pictures.  But, our parents told us that it was no big deal.  Everyone just grabbed seats. 


            I wouldn't worry about it.  But, if you feel you really need to, I would try a DIY project.  I used sand dollars as placecards for my AHR and people throught they were really cute.

              We have 35 guest coming. We are having a U-shaped table so we are just having some reserved signs for immediate family and then placecards for everybody else.

                We're having 60 or more people for our DW.  We are not doing assigned seating for our welcome dinner since it's beach BBQ and super casual, but I think we will for the wedding.  I think it makes it easier and makes it more formal.  What do you think?

                  For a small group I don't think it's necessary.  If your parents are worried about getting seats next to you, there is nothing wrong with doing "reserved" or "mother of the bride, father of the bride" kind of thing.  I think it will work itself out because of your small group!

                    Not a must, unless your resort requires it for serving dinner. I would check with them first, and if they're not required and you don't feel like making/buying them, then don't bother unless it's an accent you would like to have.

                      I have about 25 guests coming as well an we aren't doing them.  I figured everyone can just figure out where to sit on their own.
