akirasan:  The officiant gets to set the rules, whether they are his rules or policy of the church.

Adults should be able to sit up straight, look attentive, and be mindful of where accessories like bouquets are. The officiant sets the rules.  Tell your BP to look good, pics will be taken.

akirasan:  the B and G may have ignored his request and instead of ruining the ceremony by putting his foot down the officiant just let them continue.

I would be peeved at the pics too. My cousin had her arms folded during a cake cutting at a family wedding.  I told her to put her arms down and smile since the bride and groom would have the pics forever. I wish people would just break their bad habbits for one day.

It’s the norm here for the rest of the wedding party to sit. The focus is in the couple getting married.
