Wedding Ceremony: On Which Side Does Each Family Sit?

Q.

Is there a rule as to which side each family (the bride's and groom's) sits during the wedding ceremony?

A.

In Christian ceremonies, the bride's family sits on the left, the groom's on the right. Likewise, the bride stands at the left at the altar while the groom stands to her right. In a Jewish ceremony, it's the opposite; the bride and her family are on the right, the groom and his are on the left.
