My friend is getting married tomorrow locally, he has invited a few friends but the rest (including myself) to the night do.
As I am getting married in a few weeks I asked if it was ok if I come along to the ceremony, as I’d like to get a bit of a better idea of the ceremony. He has said that he’s be delighted for me to be there, so this isn’t an issue of treading on peoples toes.
My questions are
1. Where would I sit?
2. What should I wear?
Thank you for reading

I suggest you sit in the back, since you aren’t super close friends, and let his closer friends and family members fill up the front of the church. Maybe wear a nice dress, or trousers and a nice top.

Sit in the back and wear something cute and comfortable?

Sit at the back but not isolated from the rest of the guests. If there are empty rows it would look strange to see you sitting alone like some kind of judge.
Wear what you would wear if you were a guest at the wedding.

agree sit closer to the back- on his side, at least dress pants and either button down or polo with loafers or dress shoes- would not wear jeans or tshirt or sneakers at ALL

I best not wear a dress, as Im a bloke. I was thinking of dark trousers and a shirt/jumper.
Thanks for the advice

Should I wait and go in after the majority of guest have gone in, then sit at the back of them

@mike20070: I don’t think that’s necessary. I do think that a good number of people prefer sitting in the back at weddings – I’ve found that the middle rows are usually the ones with empty seats, so if you see people already seated towards the back, just go one row behind them. As long as you aren’t front and center you should be fine!
ETA: And your outfit sounds perfect.

@mike20070: LOL. Yeah, I guess wearing a dress would make you stand out pretty loudly
