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 seating alternatives to make their event authentic and memorable. You do not have to go for a conventional reception seating chart because we have several options to make your iconic day stand out from the crowd. Here are some options you can consider and have a celebration remembered by all of your guests!
Replace the traditional ceremony chairs with an arch or 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 an arched, semi-circle formation surrounding the altar, and voila – you’ve got yourself arrangement guests do not expect to see at such an event! Arranging this style of seating offers a more intimate feel for your ceremony.
Go for long rows along the aisle
Another unique ceremony seating alternative t is by creating two long rows from either side of the aisle, so your guests can feel comfortable and really enjoy the whole setting of the ceremony. By setting, we mean your astonishing appearance as the bride, i.e., the star of this celebration! Similar to the arched seating pattern, this style also allows for a closer feel as well as provides a unique perspective for ceremony proceedings.
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! These seats provide comfortable seating throughout the entirety of your ceremony.
Make it your own!
No two weddings are the exact same, so why should your ceremony seating be either? Gather up your vintage and antique chairs for a variety of seating. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and opt for something authentic and playful for your ceremony seating chart!
