Even though we didn’t have a really small wedding, Darling Husband and I had our attendants sit after my father “gave me away”.  We wanted it to just be our pastor and the two of us up there for the ceremony.  So, I’d suggest having your attendants sit.  They can sit in the row in front of your parents, or they can have their own seating on the sides of the front area:  Just my opinion.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I think having the attendants sit is a great idea. Or provide charis for those that need them and let everyone else stand in a group. I wouldn’t stress to much about “how it looks” It’s small and personal so everyone is going to remember the words and feelings much more than how things look (It sounds amazing, by the way!).

You said you are getting married in the mountains…..can I take a wild guess and say that you are getting married in Banff Alberta??? If so, congrats..you are right in my neighbourhood!

Have your attendants sit during your vows, that why the sole focus is on you two, its easier for everyone and it solves your problem of the ceremony looking bare.

Maybe have the 6 form a loose semi circle around the back of you and the 9 form a slightly tighter semi circle around the front of you, all seated, and you Fiance and the officiant in the center. 

Wedding in the round. ๐Ÿ™‚

All great ideas!  I would for sure have your attendants sit…somewhere.  That’s what I plan on doing as well.  I like the semi circle idea too – or that photo that was posted above looks really cool too!
