Will you be having ushers?  if so, make sure the ushers know that you are reserving 6 rows on the groom’s side, but only 4 on the bride’s, so they should seat guests in those two rows notwithstanding the flowers.  you could also add “reserved” signs on those rows to drive the point home.

@ms. fondue: Exactly what I was going to suggest! Great minds and all that. 🙂

 

I think revered signs would really hammer the point home and possible just give a quick mention to the groomsmen handing out programs that if it looks like those 2 rows aren’t filling up, they should suggest it to the people they are giving programs to that it’s fine to sit there.

Ditto on the reserved signs.  We did this and I had way more rows reserved (5 rows vs. DH’s 2) – people didn’t end up sitting in the 3 ‘extra’ rows on DH’s side – which really bummed me out… but, it really didn’t matter!  All that really matters is the family has their seats and your dear Mother-In-Law is fine with it.  🙂  People will want to sit close and will chose rows without the signs (make sure you do several that you can put in intervals on the seat part – and not just one sign per pew).
