This is actually due to a special interactions for so called "impatient wedding guests". The tuning seems to be intentional as sometimes there aren't enough seats for the guests at a venue to attend the wedding. However, if one wanted to make it less frequent, I'd suggest to lover the StaticCommodity for it to 4 or maybe even 1. It's currently set to 128, which is the same value as for guests sitting down to watch the ceremony.


<I c="StaticCommodity" i="scommodity" m="statistics.static_commodity" n="StaticCommodity_ImpatientWeddingGuest" s="16429">
  <T n="ad_data">1</T>


Another possible solution would be to adjust the priority of sitting down by changing the tuning 


277123  wedding_Attend_Custom_State_Wedding_TakeSeats


to something like


<L n="_static_commodities">
      <T n="desire">16</T>
      <T n="static_commodity">16421<!--StaticCommodity_AttendWedding--></T>


On a more general note, the static commodities for almost all wedding activities are set too low which results in Sims not responding to the new immediate interactions most of the time.


I've getting very good results with raising all of the following ones to 256. (They need to be higher than the commodity to attend the wedding which is currently set to 128.)


280181  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_WeddingCouple_Recessional

280171  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_WeddingCouple_Processional

280175  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_WeddingCouple_DanceGatherDanceFloor

280174  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_WeddingCouple_DanceGather

280189  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_VowsWatch

280187  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_ToastGather

280398  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_SpecialRole_Processional

280172  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_Officiant_CeremonyGather

280173  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_HonorAttendant_CeremonyGather

280618  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_Guest_Recessional

280186  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_DanceGatherDanceFloor

280185  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_DanceGather

280188  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_Dance

280184  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_CakeGather

280183  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_CakeEat

280388  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_Bouquet

282137  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_BG_OfficiantSpeech

282628  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_BG_OfficiantGather_Ceremony

282532  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_BG_CakeGather



This one I set to 64 because it's rather a fallback one and should be lower:


280180  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_SitDown



This on I set to 8 because it's even lower in priority:


280182  staticCommodity_Custom_State_Wedding_Mingle




Looks like much but is actually an really easy task as there's just one value to be adjusted in each tuning file.

@LyssSimpatico Only four sims in the front two rows ever sat down at my wedding, the rest complained they couldn’t sit even though nothing was blocking their way and opted to just block the aisle so my flower pal etc was forced to walk around them. I tried this several times and even deleted items hoping to fix it, nope, they kept on making the cant sit gesture and I just gave up and let them stand
