@RednecksBride:  Just have your ushers distribute guests evenly.

We didn’t have a “bride” side and  a “groom” side. People just sat wereever they wanted.

@JenGirl:  yes, it’s supposed to be a joining of families.  I think bride side and groom side is tacky.

I wouldn’t say that it’s tacky. It’s quite traditional and doesn’t work well if you have significantly differen numbers of guests on one side. But I don’t see why it would be tacky. Maybe outdated?

Same with us. Just had an usher tell people to sit anywhere they wanted.

I didn’t even really think about it at my own wedding. People just seated themselves.

That’s how my wedding will be as well….lots on his side and not nearly as many on mine. I think we are going to have a sign that says:

“Friends of the bride…

Friends of the groom…

Sit all together, there is plenty of room!”

or

“Today two families become one.

Pick a seat, not a side!”

 

Or something with the same idea!

Ps….that round seating would be amazing to have!
