I’ve never encountered this situation, but if the chairs are important to you,  I don’t see anything wrong with moving the ceremony chairs to the reception if you have enough time to do so– they can be set up during cocktail hour, especially if everyone will be in a different location than the main dining room for cocktail hour.

veganbride805:  I had to rent two sets of chairs and my ceremony and reception were at the same venue! My DOC said absolutely not to the idea of moving them during cocktail hour. It’s disruptive and would be rude to have family or friends help. Your vendors will be setting up the dining area to the last possible minute and relying on a perfectly timed chair move in is just too much to gamble. They will be in the way of the florist and caterer unless you have a really long “catholic gap” or something.

Plus with the labor you would pay to set up at ceremony then break down, load up, move, set up, and breakdown the same chairs you might as well have rented two sets. That I garauntee you. So yeah, either make peace with banquet chairs (no one else cares I swear!) or two sets it is.
