When it comes to wedding church ceremonies a common question that pops up is who sits where. Follow these simple tips and advice for a seamless flow.
Where do our parents sit?
The parents of the bride sit on the left in the first pew, while the groom’s parents sit on the right of the first pew.
How about our immediate family?
It’s always best to reserve the first few pews on either side, as these will seat the rest of your immediate family. Your ushers should ideally have a list of these family members, so they can easily be escorted to their seats.
Ditch the tradition?
Now, the wedding ceremony seating etiquette I mentioned above is the traditional way of doing things. However, in these modern times more and more people are throwing tradition out the window and asking their guests to not pick a side and to sit where they please.
Other things to consider…
- If you have any guests with a physical disability it’s probably best to reserve them a seat at the end of the pews
- Elderly relatives should be seated as close as possible to the front.
- Guests in wheelchairs or on crutches should sit at the end of a pew.

Today I bring to you the fairytale like collection from Monique L’huillier. Featuring gorgeous glistening gowns, with floral embellishments and lace! Just magical!
“My Fall 2015 Bridal collection draws inspiration from the surreal beauty and fantasy of a jewelry box. My gowns were dreamed up as if from a treasure trove of one’s keepsakes and ornate jewelry, where a perfectly poised ballerina balances en pointe pirouetting in delight. Open my jewelry box for sparkling romance and ethereal playfulness. Gowns are effortless yet dreamy, ultra feminine yet subtly glamorous.”
“From soft sheaths with exaggerated trains, embroidered trumpet silhouettes to grandiose embellished gowns, each piece is a cherished jewel. Pastel shades of mint, lavender, primrose, and blush create a playful twist on tradition. Delicate tonal beading trickles off gowns, while collaged with Chantilly and re-embroidered laces, layers of sheer colored tulle prove that design details are distinctive and exquisite.”
“My Ready to Wed collection takes its cue from the sweetly feminine ballerina with a two-piece crop-top, tea-length skirt, and antique gold strapless mini. It’s this poetry in motion that adorns my collection, a feeling that once you open the jewelry box you can experience each gown as a personal treasure.”
