Are Seating Charts a Dinner Party Do or Don't?

Are Seating Charts a Dinner Party Do or Don't?

This weekend I'm hosting a big dinner party that 22 people are expected to attend. I keep asking myself the following question: should I do a seating chart? Many of the guests are couples and traditionally couples should not sit together; a seating chart will ensure that everyone is separated. Still, I want to the conversation to be lively and hope that everyone will have an awesome time. Is this only possible if I let guests select where they sit? What do you think? How do you feel about assigned seating at a dinner party?
