If you’re looking for a way to make your wedding ceremony feel fresh and memorable, consider one of the first things your guests will see once they arrive—their ceremony seats. Instead of the expected straight rows, why not switch up your ceremony seating plan? Rearranging the chairs into interesting shapes—like squares, semi-circles, and even spirals—can make your ceremony feel more intimate and inclusive (you’ll literally be surrounded by your loved ones!).
Of course, you’ll need to adapt your seating plan to work with your ceremony space, but as long as you’ve accounted for the number of guests and ensured that everyone has a good view of the ceremony proceedings at the altar, anything goes.
