How many people can sit on a straw bale?

I think bales can come in different sizes, but I wouldn’t say more than two people, just to be safe and make sure everyone is comfortable.  One thing I would say though is to make sure your ceremony is quite short.  Hay bales are low and have no back so they wouldn’t be a comfortable place to sit for very long.

like a hay bale? Usually not more than two people, but you might want to consider putting something to cover the top of it if people are going to be sitting on them, since growing up around farms they are very itchy to sit on especially if your in a dress.

I’d say two.  If people are sitting too close to the edge straw bales get saggy and you’d be sitting lopsided.

I agree with pp that they aren’t very comfortable and can actually hurt the butt. I grew up riding horses and have sat on my share of straw bales. With thick jeans, it wasn’t a big deal, but not sure about them for women especially (with their dresses). Just my opinion though! How short will the ceremony be? Also, like somebody above mentioned, there won’t be back support either so if you have any people who have back issues or are elderly, that could hurt a bit.

Cute idea though! What’s your theme? I love the sounds of it so far!
