Switch Up Your Ceremony Seating

Your wedding is going to be unique and personalized and so very you. So, why go with the same old rows of seating you’ve seen at every other ceremony? Why not change it up a bit?!


Here are a few different types of ceremony seating to choose from:

Traditional
Two sides, one aisle down the middle, you know the drill.

Curved
Similar to Traditional, but instead of making straight rows on each side, curve the rows toward the front. This gives everyone a little bit better view of the main attraction (that’s you!).

Round
Set each row of chairs in concentric circles around where the two of you will stand and then put an aisle right down the middle. You and your future spouse can walk in from either side of the aisle to meet in the middle or you can enter one way and exit the other. This set up is great for allowing all of your guests to see you and being surrounded by all of your loved ones provides a very intimate ceremony feeling. It works best with a very small or no wedding party since too many people standing in the middle will block people’s views.

Alternative Seating
Who says you have to have just chairs? Ceremony seating could include awesome mis matched couches and chairs, bales of hay, long wooden benches, cocktail tables and chairs, or even blankets and big fluffy pillows (just be sure you warn your guests so they can wear comfortable attire to sit in!).

Two Aisles
Split the seating into three sections with an aisle between the first and second section and another aisle between the second and third section. This set up is awesome for couples that both want to walk down the aisle but want to walk at the same time and meet at the front of the ceremony.
