Is it possible to change the seating/layout at all?

I think if I remember correctly I was best gal at a wedding last year where there were two aisles. It was kind of a semicircle, the church. Anyway, they closed one of the doors (the one on the right) and had the priest kind of face towards the side a little. In other words they had guests occupy two out of the three columns of seats and focused on that. It wasn’t very noticeable.

I’ve been to one wedding with a split aisle and the bride walked down the left-most aisle.  I’m not sure why, but I figured maybe because that’s the side her family/friends sat on?

Our Church has three aisles, but the middle one is wider.

Any time I’ve been to a wedding in a church with that layout the bride walks down the left aisle and they both recess back up the right aisle.

I think a two-aisle church would be a great opportunity for you and your groom to both walk up at the same time and join together at the front.  It would be neat symbolism for the joining of your lives.

If that idea doesn’t strike your fancy, then you should talk to the regular priest at that church to find out how they normally do things on a Sunday morning service, and just follow that.

good idea to ask the priest what usually is done.

I’ve been to a wedding like that before and the bride walked up the left aisle and then the bride and groomed walked down the right aisle after the ceremony.

We’ve looked at churches that have 2 aisles as well, and I personally would rather walk down one centre aisle.  However, a friend of mine walked down the left aisle and came back up the right aisle with her new husband.  I thought that was a good thought, to let everyone in the audience have a good view of the bride from both sides.
