Attending The Wedding Ceremony

Again you will want to attending the wedding ceremony about 20 to 30 minutes prior to the service. Make sure you give yourself lots of time especially if you are traveling for the wedding. Before most weddings is a typically a meet and greet with the friends and family of the bride and groom in the lobby or outside of the wedding venue. You will want to take your seat for the ceremony at least 5 minutes prior to the ceremony. If possible refrain from trying to see the bride prior to the ceremony. Weddings are a lot of pressure for most ladies and some like a few minutes of alone time before they walk the aisle. Their will be plenty of time for photos and congratulations through out the night.

Seating Arrangements At The Wedding Ceremony

For larger weddings you will typically be seated by the ushers. The ushers are typically close friends or family of the bride and groom. At most weddings as the ushers seat you they will give you a program to walk you through the steps of the ceremony. Most traditional weddings has the friends and family of the bride seated on one side of the venue and the grooms on the other. The aisle the bride is about to walk usually separates the two groups.   A more modern approach is for the ushers to seat the guests as they arrive so that the bride’s family and friends can mingle with the groom’s family and friends.

If you are Attending The Wedding Ceremony that is less formal and you are to seat yourself. As a general rule of thumb the first few rows of the wedding ceremony venue are reserved for the bride and grooms immediate family. If this isn’t you try to find the best seat in the middle or back of the venue.

After you have been seated now all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the ceremony.
