I have a small family and the majority of my guests are coming from out of town/state - I know that not everyone will make it.
My FI has a larger family, all from Philly. There will be significantly more people there for his side than mine. I'm OK with this - but since we are having a Catholic church ceremony, it will be noticable.
Also, his family is Catholic and mine is not. I feel like the ceremony will be awkward since there are less guests on my side and few are familiar with Catholic traditions. Can we skip the bride/groom "sides" and mix everyone together? How have other people handled lopsided guest lists?
