I will have about 100 people and my ceremony and reception are in the same location so all the tables will be off to the side while the ceremony is taking place. How many rows should i have? and how many seats per row on each side?

Do you mean 100 guests? Make sure you don’t include wedding party members since they won’t be seated. I would do rows of 5 or 6 on each side.

There is no one answer. It depends on the space available.
Shorter rows would be my preference. The guests get a better view and may feel more connected to the processional/recessional.
You could have 10 rows of 5 on each side, but you might want to think of the groups who would want to be seated in the same row- your Mom and Dad, Grandparents etc.

@beccanmatt08: does your venue help or have a standard set up they can show you?
