Wedding Ceremony: How Can Our Wedding Guests Even Out the Bride and Groom Sides?


We are not getting married in my home state and very few members of my family will be there. How should I deal with the wedding seating in the church? His side will be filled, while mine will be virtually empty. Is there anything I can do?


When the number of family and friends of one is significantly smaller than the other -- and this happens more than you would think these days, for similar reasons -- you should simply have the ushers seat guests not by side, but in the best possible seat, on either side. That way your family won't feel strange or uncomfortable filling only a few rows while your fiance's relatives and pals can't see because they are so far back. It makes sense to seat them so that they'll be able to see, and to even out the sides.
