    I’m sorry, but I’ve never been to a wedding set up in a circle but it does sound different, intimate and beautiful! Have you tried to search online some more? I say go for it if YOU and your Fiance like it. I take it people will still be seated in chairs. They should still be able to see you walk down the aisle. Or you could even so a semi-circle. Have them sit behind the officate instead of looking at your backside the entire time. My sister did this because the park had a gazebo set up close to the shore on the lake and solid rock were the "bleachers". Very beautiful!

    I love the idea of an in the round ceremony! Unfortunately, I’m not 100% sure it will work with our venue.  But if you like it, and you have the circular space for – go for it!

    That sounds really neat and I like the idea of having everyone surround you. How many people will be there? I can imagine this working best with fewer guests, unless you have a large space (almost like a theater). I think the people behind the officiant will have trouble seeing but it could be really great for everyone else. You might consider the semi-circle already suggested.

    I’m looking into this and am very eager to hear feedback from people who have done it or seen it done. As far as the bridal party, I think I read that they stand at the edge of the aisles. But I’m not sure if that’s always the case.

    @Guacamole: By the way! I love the tasty dip of a name you have 🙂 I could eat it everyday!

    Links Below !!!  😀

    Now, I don’t know what Google searching you have done, and if you have I’m going to go ahead and provide some stuff for girls who might want to know more. I found this website with a pretty picture of a wedding set up–go read! You can also try this Offbeat Bride page, but I tried and my internet kept crashing. This website talks about the symoblism and goes into further detail about the setup. This website is a wedding planner and she talks about why she likes the setup…also where I got most of my photos for you guys.

    There just doesn’t seem to be more photos out there I could quickly find nor are there many websites…might just take some more digging.

    I’m having a ceremony in the round!  I really didn’t want an aisle, so I was really excited to come across this idea.  I think instead of standing in the middle of the circle, we will stand at the "top" of the circle to complete it, with our party standing next to us at the beginning. 

    We’re also considering making an intersecting circle with the chairs (like 2 wedding bands, aww), but I’m not sure how any of it will work.  I am thinking of playing with chairs in the days before the ceremony to work it all out!

    a few more pictures…I like the spiral one, too!  People should be able to see you even better this way!

    I’ll be implementing this idea in my outdoor ceremony next year. It should be quite intimate we have a guest list of under 100!

    Mine will be about 30 people or so and our ceremony will be about 10-15 minutes so I am having everyone stand around us.

    My church is in a round, so that’s how the ceremony will be!

    I am planning on a Ceremony in the Round and love the idea of the spiral, but worry that with 100 guests I’ll get dizzy!Surprised Also, not sure if the outdoor garden will be big enough! I guess I’ll have to wait for the snow to melt and map it out!

    I hope to do this as well, but with only 25 people or so and the layout, it may end up being something looking like a comma! Tongue Out

    This might sound crazy, but I saw a David Tutera wedding in the round and he had the couple on a very slowly rotating platform. As the ceremony progressed, everyone got to see it from every angle. I don’t know the logistics that goes into something like that, but it sure would be cool to see and do!
