Q: How early should I arrive before a wedding ceremony?
A: Arrive at least ten to fifteen minutes early. This will give you plenty of time to find your seat and get comfortable before the ceremony starts. No one came to see you, a guest, walk down the aisle. If you arrive after the bride’s and groom’s mothers have been seated, keep a low profile by using a side aisle and sitting in the back. If you’re so late that you fear you’ll be elbowing the bride as she prepares to make her entrance, wait outside until her processional is under way.
