Don’t Worry about Anything on Your Honeymoon

Where Should Your Family Sit at Your Wedding

Creating seating charts may not be the most entertaining part of planning a wedding – but it is an essential thing to do if you want to make sure everyone has a great time. Where should your family seat at your wedding ceremony? We have gathered some tips you might want to keep in mind – so read on and find out more.

  • – Because of their relationship with the couple, it is customary to seat family members in the first rows of the wedding ceremony seats. In general, most of the guests already know this, but you might want to make sure that they are properly seated by taking extra measures of precaution.
  • – No, you don’t have to place “reserved” signs on each of the seats. It is perfectly fine to use a few signs to mark the beginning (or the end) of the rows that are reserved – but aside from that, your ushers should be the ones to take care of the guests and how they are seated.
  • – Simply let your ushers know which are the rows assigned for the family and they will guide guests accordingly. When they see a family member, they will lead him/her to the reserved seats and when they see another guest, they will guide him/her to the other seats.
  • – If you have decided to block your aisle, your guests will enter their seats from the outer edges. Use this opportunity to mark the rows that are reserved for the family. Use the same ribbon as the one you use to block the aisle and ask the ushers to take it off and put it back on when family members are seated.
