    @ThisDeluxeLife:  not sure how far away from the idea you’ll be able to get, but what about “we’re all family now, so grab a seat anywhere space allows”…lol, maybe not that exact phrase, but you get the idea 🙂

    Just have a sign that says, “YOU’RE ALL ADULTS, PICK YO’ OWN DAMN SEAT”


    jk, remember 90% of people are not obsessed with wedding blogs and have never seen that sign wording you mentioned first.

    @ThisDeluxeLife:  I’m having the same dilema! There are way more ppl on my side than my FIs and I don’t want it to be uneven, but I think the pick a seat, not a side thing is so played out! I know ppl I’m inviting will have seen it all over pintrest :/ I’m thinking of ‘welcome to weetzie & FIs wedding, sit wherever you’d like!’ Either that or just having my ushers spread the msg via word of mouth.

    Do you really need a sign?  There are chairs, people need a place to sit, it’s not rocket science.  Just sit in an open seat!  I would probably just sit in the closest sit that was open.

    Come as you are.

    Stay as long as you can.

    We’re all family.

    There’s no seating plan.


    Choose a seat,

    not a side.

    We’re all family

    once the knot is tied!

    at my brothers wedding people “cliqued” up like a highschool cafeteria and hardly anyone met the other side of the guest list. My mom still bitches about it 6 years later! 

    I also don’t like assigned seating, so I’m wondering how to avoid the little family cliques while still having a more laid back arragement.

    @pixiecat:  Yea, this. I think I might vaguely remember that I was supposed to sit on one side or the other, but I wouldn’t think too much about it. I’d just try to get the closest aisle seat to the front (so I’d have a good view!)
