Does it matter in many chueches which side of the church you sit on for bride's friend or family vs groom's?

Although Indian parishes are segregated (men on the north side, women on the south side), that doesn't always hold for weddings.  Often, the bride stands to the right of the groom and the guests will stand on the side of the person who(se family) invited them.

Nope
Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.
