Fiance and I went to look at ceremony sites this week, and my original vision of getting married in a field of wildflowers at the foot of Mt. Rainier seems less practical now. We couldn’t find a good spot in our hour of driving around, and they are pretty strict about not bringing in chairs, decorations, etc. in non-designated areas.
We did find a beautiful campground ampitheater, though, and it’s got a lot of potential. The only weird thing is there isn’t a center aisle. Instead, it’s got three columns of seating. Has anyone had to deal with not having a center aisle? I know it’s probably not a big deal, but for whatever reason, my symmetry-loving brain just can’t grasp the concept.

I had to take a right turn in my aisle, at least yours are straight! Just choose one closest to where you would come in.

I’m planning on doing an outdoor ampitheater as well. I think there are only a few adjustments to make. One, if your dad is walking you up the aisle, I would have you walk on the inside. That way, more people can see you as you come up the aisle. Also, you could have the groom and the groomsman walk up the other aisle. And maybe have different pairs go back down different aisles (??) I don’t think too much will change.
Here is my spot: 🙂 Its on a slight hill going down towards the river. I’m not sure how I’m seating people yet…

The church we chose has two aisles on each side, and no central one. We just thought “no big deal, we’ll enter from one side (the left) and exit on the other, to make it a clockwise movement kind of thing… It’s so weird that I just don’t feel walking the other way around lol.
I’m still interested in what other bees have to say about that…!

@Molianne: I like the idea of walking down one and up the other. I think I’ll go with that!
I’m walking down by myself, and we don’t have a bridal party, so it’s really just the parents getting to their bench and then me.
Thanks for the input!

The traditional thing is just to walk up one aisle and down the other. But you could also mix things up and have, for example, the groom enter one aisle and the bride enter the other. (The whole thing of having the groom just sort of sneak in, while the bride gets a huge parade, has never appealed to me.)
