I think hay bales would be perfect- you can get cute fabrics that match your colors to put over top of them. It would also be way more cost effective than renting chairs…

I love the idea of hay bales. You’d have to be very careful with elderly guests, though.

How long is the ceremony? Can you get away with just a few chairs and mostly standing room?

You could always thread ribbon through the chain link fence for a pretty backdrop. This is just an example. I would do the ribbon, or plastic tape, horizontally.

The seating on the hill would depend on how steep the slope was. Even hay bales would be awkard if there was too much slope.

If you could find benches with individual legs on the corners, you could pound the back legs in further than the front legs to get  even seating. That doesn’t solve the problem of the older folks having to climbing the hill. You could reserve the rows just behind the parents for the seniors in the crowd.
