Not a problem. I never choose where to sit based on whether I know the bride or groom better. Have the ushers or coordinators or whoever works for the venue or is assigned to direct seating simply direct people left or right to get an even seating.  But most people will probably figure out on their own that if the left is filled to sit on the right.  If you’re getting married outside of a house-of-worship they’ll probably only put out as many seats as there are guests, eliminating the problem. If you’re getting married in a church or other space that has pews/benches to seat many more than 80 then have someone direct even seating.

Put out a cute little sign that says, “Don’t choose a side, just choose a seat!”  I saw that once on here and loved the idea.  🙂

we’re having the same issue but my side is going to be the one that’s super full… I decided we’re putting close family in the front row on the side representing their family member and then people can sit where they like behind them. family or friends. Well have a certain amount of seats available so they’ll just have to sit wherever to fill them. that way the sides will end up being even, even if that’s not who they are there for… in the end theyre there for the couple anyway right, both sides!

I have the same issues but in reverse. We have about the same number of guests as you, with about 65 (I’ve got a bigger family) on my side and 15 on his side. All the RSVPs aren’t in yet, but we aren’t doing seating sides. Don’t worry, it will all work out!
