I’m planning my 2nd wedding, but I can tell you that for my 1st wedding, I wasn’t paying attention to the audience. In fact, I was completely oblivious to them! I don’t think you’ll notice who is sitting where during the ceremony.

You don’t have to follow the traditional seating.  My fiance and I aren’t having “sides”, people are just going to sit whereever. (Especailly since my family is tiny and his family is huge, it would be way out-of-whack.)

If you want your family to see your face and your reactions, then sit them opposite!  It really is up to you where the ushers direct them.  Traditional weddings are far and few between now and everyone is making their wedding unique to fit their ideas and their preferences.  I say go for it!
