So here’s my question..
I come for a very large family and estimate that there will be approximately 100-120 of my family members at my wedding ceremony. My fiance on the other hand has a very small family and I would estimate there will be no more than 25-30 people in attendance on his side.
Because I don’t want him (or his family) to feel uncomfortable with the fact that one side of the ceremony venue is nearly full and the other empty (in terms of seats filled by guests), I want to do away with the traditional “bride side” and “groom side”…

@samdegner: I saw a wedding where someone had a cute sign that said, “Don’t choose a side, just choose a seat!” or something like that and I was thinking of doing something similar.

You don’t need a bride’s side and groom’s side. You may still want to reserve the first few rows of both sides for the parents and grandparents and very close family of the bride and groom–just to guarantee their seats. But when it comes to everyone else, just try to seat them evenly throughout. You may want to have your groomsmen/ushers/whomever let the guests know that there are not “sides” so they aren’t confused. You may have guests trying to switch sides if they aren’t aware. 😉
