    I think it sounds good bc I am also very short. However, speaking from past weddings I never cared that much if I didnt see her at that moment bc I would see her a million times afterward.

    It’s kind of rude to tell adults how to act. They’ll see you at the front and during the ceremony so I wouldn’t worry about it.

    I don’t think it’s a good idea so that they can see you (some will have heads in their way no matter what they do) but because it’s pretty funny, and it’ll probably get a giggle out of your guests. And I think guests enjoy a good giggle during the ceremony, it breaks some of the tension. That being said, also consider the photos that will be taken as you come down… You may not be able to see all your guests in those particular photos (but plenty more chances of that anyway!!)

    I say go for it! It will be one of those things that makes your wedding yours, and no one else’s πŸ™‚ just make sure the pastor can say it with a smile on his face.

    I think it’s fine to make the request.

    I think it would be cute and kind of funny. If you explained it like you do here, I can’t imagine anyone minding, since you are requesting this for a legitimate reason as opposed to just being bossy because you can because you’re the bride.

    They’ll see you at the front! So I wouldn’t be too worried about them seeing you walking down the aisle!

    it is certainly not rude! i know that you can’t dictate how adults behave, but you can definitely ask them to remain seated, why would anyone mind?

    I like the idea of making the request, but I don’t think it’s super funny. At the end of the day though it’s not my wedding and if you feel comfortable with it then go for it. I hope that doesn’t sound rude, I just mean I like the idea behind the request, but maybe not worded exactly like it is here.

    Honestly I think people will stand up anyways. I would find it a rather odd request.

    I have never pictured guests standing when I come down the aisle. I think if the officiant doesn’t say “please rise” or whatever, people would remain sitting and then you wouldn’t need to make any announcement.

    @Westwood:  who would stand up after somebody saying out loud “the bride doesn’t want you to stand up”?
