Seating Alternatives: Unique Ceremony Seating

11.22.22

Not keen on the traditional seating arrangements for your wedding ceremony? If this is how you feel, believe us, you’re not the only one. Many couples are looking for modern and unique ceremony seating alternatives to make their wedding more authentic and memorable.

Do not think that you have to go for a conventional ceremony seating chart. We have several options to make your iconic day stand out from the crowd. Here are some unique ceremony seating alternatives you can consider and have a celebration remembered by all of your guests!

Replace the traditional ceremony chairs with a circular setup 

We’ve all seen the customary wedding seating during a ceremony with regular rows of chairs in front of the altar. Non-traditional couples are not crazy about this setup and are always looking for ways to avoid it. One way to make it fun is to round it up.

Position the chairs in a circular motion surrounding the altar, and voila – you’ve got yourself a new arrangement that guests will not expect to see.

Go for long rows along the aisle 

Another way to spice up a wedding seating arrangement is by creating two long rows on either side of the aisle. Make your guests feel comfortable so they can really enjoy the whole setting of the ceremony. By setting, we mean your astonishing appearance as the star of this celebration!

Enter from each end and meet in the middle of the runway. After all, it is a fashion show, right?

Colorful poufs

If you plan on throwing a boho wedding, you can completely abandon the traditional placements. Bohemian settings require various colors and seats that are not chairs but poufs! 

We believe that our seating alternatives will look chic on your special day and will help you avoid the things we usually see at weddings. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and opt for something authentic and playful for your reception seating chart!
