The daughter of a friend of mine is getting married in the next year and I’m helping out a little with the planning. I have a question for you guys. The groom doesn’t have much in the way of family/friends and she does. They don’t want the seating arrangement to be the whole one side is the groom’s and one side is the bride’s. She wants to have a handout (?) or a hanging/poster/sign (?) with a verse or something to that effect. (Along the lines of ‘don’t pick a particular side–at the end of the ceremony we will be one’). Or should they just have ushers to seat people? Somehow I don’t see that working very well. I haven’t been to that many weddings, so I haven’t seen something to deal with this situation. (Though I have been to weddings where it has been this situation and it is a bit awkward.)
I was wondering if you have any suggestions or have seen it handled well. Thanks!
