We’re hoping to have an outdoor wedding in a small garden type area. The guest list is hugely imbalanced – most of the guests are FI’s family. We could seat people randomly on either side of a center aisle, but I wonder if there is another type of arrangement – perhaps a circle or semi – circle, which would feel more inclusive? Extra credit to arrangements which don’t have us with our backs to our guests for the ceremony! lol Any ideas?

@Astra: Don’t worry guests can sit on either side (You can have “choose a seat not a side” sign).

@Astra: You could have circular seating
or semi-circular seating with no aisle- you come in from the side of the altar area

@julies1949: i LOVE the circular seating! If I were to do it all over again, that’s exactly how i would do it! 🙂

@julies1949: Thank you!! Awesome ideas. I love the circular idea. Or maybe semi-circular …. with about 50 guests, that might work better…. Love the photos. Thanks so much!!

@beemyname: Thank you! If we end up doing a center aisle that’s a great idea to have the sign!

@Astra: I’m going to have the majority of the guests at my wedding as well. I’m going to use the “Pick a Seat not a Side idea”.
