What rows are you putting your reserved signs for the church (if you’re using one)? I’m thinking for me definitely the first two: the wedding party for the front and the second for immediate family.
I’m just wondering if I need to do any more. I don’t know. What are you guys doing?
Also, how are you making the signs? Or can you pick such signs up somewhere?

We’re not doing anything. The ushers will know not to put people in those rows for family (plus people tend to know not to sit in the first couple of rows anyway). I thinks the signs are unnescessary and kind of take away from the overall feel of the church.

I still have to call the church and ask if they do the reserved signs. Boy there feels like so much to do, so little time.

I’ve never seen reserved signs regardless of the venue type, even in churches. Most people know that the first two rows on either side are reserved for parents and grandparents. Save yourself the stress (and money) and skip them.

Ushers should be given instruction re what rows you want reserved.
If you want to be doubly sure that no one will move up. I have seen ribbon taped from one pew to the next. People get the message. The ushers can easily remove it when escorting family to their seats.

usually they are marked with flowers, not signs…(if you aren’t doing an arrangement on the other pews you could have a distinguished color bow or other to set it apart) Otherwise-just make sure your ushers do not seat people there! 🙂
