How to organize food for large gathering

I am Planning a very large family gathering for thanksgiving dinner. When previous family members hosted, each person was asigned or asked to bring a specific dish. I find this too autocratic, specific and does not allow individual choice and variety. (The Turkey is being provided by FIL)

I would prefer to ask people to simply bring a side dish to share. DD thinks this is to vague, with the risk of too many of same sides.

What are your thoughts on how to organize this type of event.
