I think that bench will work great!!  I think the officiant should be standing.  The plan sounds good to me.

I think it’s a great idea! I like the bench and I think it will go well with the described room/location. I agree the officiant should stand. Where would you have him stand, behind the bench?

I think this is a great idea! I also think the officient should stand, in front of you.

@adoc86:  I really like your idea, and I agree that the official should be standing. Having said that, it wouldn’t be nice if he was *looking down at you* so I would only choose a relatively high bench. I also think it’s kind of romantic for your Fiance to lift you onto the bench…I know that you are perfectly capable of doing it yourself, but I just think it would be sweet!

@adoc86:  But I did just notice that you said you two will be facing each other, whereas the official will be more facing the crowd. Maybe he could have a stool, or a chair that matches the bench (easy enough to do with chair covers!). I just don’t like the idea of him hovering over you, but I also would want to make sure people could hear him (sometime it’s harder to hear when people are sitting). Maybe you need microphones too.

I’m so glad you agree with him lifting you…I think that is so romantic and sweet…And would be a great photo! Plus, he’s just standing there waiting for you, he might as well be useful 😉

80% of weddings I’ve attended have had the officiant standing with the couple seated. It doesn’t look weird to me at all. In all cases both the officiant and the couple were situated perpendicular to the audience, so that the officiant was facing the couple and the audience was getting everyone’s side view.
