Nicer way to say... "Choose a Seat, Not a Side"
My family is way larger than FH's and seating would look silly if we did it traditionally (brides on ones side, grooms on other)... I like the idea of this sign but I think that the wording is a bit... rude? I like the first part "as two families become one..." but can anyone thing of better wording for the last part.

for the ceremony... reception .... maybe use for both?


Find a seat
stay as long as you can.
We are all friends here
so there is no seating plan.


or

"Friends of the Bride, Friends of the Groom, Sit together, there's plenty of room."

As two families become one we ask that you choose a seat not a side.

I really like the "Friends of the Bride, Friends of the Groom, Sit together, there's plenty of room." ... it is for the ceremony specifically - for the reception we are using escort cards... that's awesome, thanks!!

I personal hate the whole "pick a seat not a side thing" (or any version like it that is telling people it is ok to sit anywhere during the ceremony). I think it's cheesy and being done too much. Every time I go to a wedding, I joke on the way there if we are going to see "that" sign. When we do, I roll my eyes. I think people can figure out how to sit and already know that they can sit wherever (not like the seating police are going to come after them). If seats on the side they want to sit on are taken, I'm sure they can figure out to sit on the other side. Not trying to sound harsh, but It's just a pet peeve of mine....sorry.
