  • First and foremost, let’s make this clear: you do not need to place “Reserved” signs on each of the seats. Not only would this be costly, but it could come out as impolite and almost aggressive as well – and that’s the last thing you want for your wedding ceremony.
  • Instead, have a few ushers guide the guests towards the assigned seats. Tell your ushers which are the seats you want to reserve for the family and ask them to guide the family members there, while guiding the other guests on the other seats.
  • If you want to block the aisle, consider using the same ribbon to block the first few rows for the family as well. This way, your ushers can simply take off the ribbon when family members want to take a seat and place it back, so that other guests seat behind the family.
  • Last, but not least, if you really like the idea of having “Reserved” signs, you only need as many of them as the number of rows you want to reserve. Simply place them on either of the ends of the rows and ask your ushers to guide guests if they are confused.
