Does it have to go according to family lines?

QuestionMy fiance and I are planning to have our wedding ceremony at a church. When you look at the number of guests who may be showing up at the church, my fianc? will have much fewer people sitting on his side of the church. Is this wedding rule a must? It just seems so awkward to have my side completely filled and his side all empty.

AnswerGuidelines are guidelines and in this case, you are absolutely right. It would look very awkward to have one side of the church completely full of guests while the other pews for your fianc? are meagerly splashed with people. It would be much easier to seat guests equally on both sides. Just make sure to let your ushers know so that they can carry out your wishes on the wedding day without having you to fret about this minor detail.
