@cllyons: My brother married in a fire hall and everyone was seated at the round dinner tables for the ceremony. It went well and was very pretty. It didn’t seem as formal, but I don’t think it’s a bad backup plan for an outdoor wedding.

@cllyons: I’m personally not a big fan of this but thats just me. A friend of mine ended up having to do this because there was a quasi-typhoon on her wedding day. She was NOT happy and in all honesty, it definitely didn’t look as good as it would have if she was able to go through with her original plans. I think as a back-up plan its fine (since its that or get married outside in the rain) but I personally wouldn’t choose to have this set up for our ceremony if there was a more formal alternative. 

I just checked that friends FB but unfortunately she doesn’t have any pictures of the ceremony posted.

Some friends of ours are doing this for thier wedding in a couple weeks. It sounds a bit awkward to me, but I guess I’ll have a better idea of how it looks after I go 🙂

Actually, depends on the style of your wedding.  I think it only works for a romatic, candlelit evening wedding.  Wish I could find a pic, it’s very posh!

I set up a wedding like this at the last minute do to weather (rain). The tables were around the perimeter of the room and the couple and attendants walked out to the center where they were married. Guests loved it because they said they got a better view and immediately after, we rolled up the runner and petals and it became the dance floor for the reception. It worked so well, I did it at another wedding do to heat but they came in through all the tables set up on either side and got married at the head of the room. It was great. It saves money and head ache.
