It happens a lot that a wedding will start on time and the bride walking In at exactly the invite time. While it’s great for the timeline of the day it does mean that a few of your guests that might arrive a few minutes late will be left hanging (standing) at the back of the church for the next 40 minutes as they don’t want to disrupt the ceremony by entering after the bride.
A nice way to counter this is to “block” off the back row with a reserved sign. This means that the row will stay open.
Right after the bride “walked the plank” one of the ushers can then remove the signs and voila you have some seating for the latecomers.
