@ummsgna:  Could your priest/officiant say “please stay seated for the entrance of the bride”

I would just get your officiant to state at the start “we would kindly ask you to refrain from standing during the recessional to allow all guests the chance to see the bride

Usually it’s the officiant that asks people to stand as the bride enters, so rather than having him ask everyone to stand, just have him ask everyone to stay seated 🙂

At my wedding, everyone stood, but we had only about 4 seats in each row on either side of the aisle, and there was enough room that everyone could turn around completely to face me and watch. It also worked pretty well.

Just ask the officiant to say something to the guests.  Even if you write something in the programs, most people won’t notice the note.
