I’m all for open seating at our wedding. Only the first row or two will be reserved for family/special guests.

My FH is allowing me to get married closer to home and won’t have very many guests present and I don’t want him to feel like “dang, they’re all on her side”.

We are doing open seating, as well.  Are you having ushers?  If so, perhaps just have them greet the guests and tell them to sit anywhere they like. I have been to several weddings where an usher greeted me, handed me a program, and motioned towards the seating area while telling me to sit wherever I want.  I like that a lot, as it feels sort of like one big cohesive family rather than everyone separated by relation to the bride/groom.

Maybe have a cute sign something along the lines of – like the marriage of bride and groom, we want our guests to be one giant family – please feel free to have a seat where-ever you like.

But I do agree that the first row or two for parents/grandparents/siblings since they are the most important ones!

I’ve seen “Two families are becoming one.  Don’t choose a side, just choose a seat!”

I love that idea! I didn’t even think of having everyone sit where ever they want, excluding the first 2 rows for immediate family, etc. I’m definitely going to do this at our wedding, put some cute little sign up with a cute saying.
