this probably isn’t very cost effective but it looked cool- My Fair Wedding did the cutest wedding just like u described, and instead of chairs he had all kinds of mismatched stuff; rocking chairs, wooden benches, hay, kitchen table chairs, it all went together really nicely even if it sounds strange.

see if u can find that episode on youtube, the bride in that episode wore cowboy boots 🙂

What are people sitting on for the reception?  We used the same chairs for our ceremony and reception at my wedding.  I like the hay bale idea, I know someone that went to a wedding with that and said it was really fun.  If you’re going to do something on the ground, don’t forget that some people have problems getting on the ground, and others will be wearing short skirts!  You’ll need at least some chairs.

Buying or renting haybales could be as expensive or more so, than renting chairs.

Do either of you belong to a church or community organization that you could approach to borrow or rent the chairs from at low cost?

I went to an outdoor ceremony a few years ago where most of the guests stood.  Going from what you’re saying about not being religious, I’m guessing your ceremony is going to be pretty short.


If you only order chairs for elderly guests and/or family you’ll save money.  I happily stood at the outdoor ceremony, and really didn’t mind, considering it was only about 15 minutes.

Umm…when are you having the wedding? bc I know that my friend had a hay ride toward the end of October & by this time ppl selling hay tend to want to get it out of the way. She was able to get 10 bails of hay for $1 a piece. so that would be cheap. She had to have the means to pick them up tho. Some ppl are allergic to hay tho. Something you might want to figure out with your guests before you settle on it.

You could do Logs? either like just laid down & supported by rocks, chopped up & set up-right, or maybe even cut down the middle so theres a flat surface for them to sit on & supported by rocks. idk–it sounds a little awful but I think you could honestly make it cute. like the rocks could be painted the wedding colors with yalls initials on them, or wedding date, or hearts, & stuff. 

you could also do like a cute picnic kinda thing where you’d have blankets spread out for ppl to sit on. that probably require letting the ladies know not to wear skirts.

i like the picnic table idea too. just make sure the ushers have them just sit on one side that way no ones back is turned.

idk….just some ideas (:
