I’m thinking about the same thing and would love to hear what other bees say!

Bump. I have the same question – how does circular seating ACTUALLY work out? I’ve seen tons of pics of all the empty chairs laid out, and yes that’s beautiful, but how does it work out with people IN them?

My concern would be what you are saying 1) what do the wedding attendants do to be out of the way? and 2) how do you get good pictures? 

Some of the far away aerial shots are cool if you have a 2nd or 3rd photographer to catch that angle… but how do you get all the classic closer ones without people accidentally photobombing the background? Not on purpose, but some people have really weird listening/watching faces…and/or may figit with their face or clothing in a way that looks awkward/embarassing in that instant.

i am considering this as well… the chapel I’m getting married in has free standing chairs that can be rearranged… and we’re having a small, intimate wedding (50 people or so) with no attendants…. so just standing will be us and our pastor…. but i’m still not sure how it will work…. doing more reading and research….and following this thread to see what other bees suggest… would love to see pictures with guests in this type of seating….

The seating in our ceremony site is actually semi-circular, so our seating arrangements will be a little non-traditional anyway.
