How about a bar stool that’s got some black fabric on it so it blends in with his suit? (Taken he’s wearing a black suit)

I had a pair of friends put a pair of chairs up by the front and they sat next to each other during the readings & sermon piece of the ceremony. I didn’t think anything of it.

Hi there,

Can you both sit during the ceremony? Something like the picture below but facing each other.

I like the idea of both the bride and groom being seated. I went to wedding a few summers ago and the bride used a wheelchair so the groom just sat next to her during the ceremony. Very sweet and intimate.

My groom was in a similar position, disability-wise: we had two chairs at the front where we both sat during the readings, but stood for the vows. He had to sit for the rings, and then stood again to kiss and walk down the aisle.

The only hitch was when the best man thought he got to sit next to the groom nstead of me, so when i got to the end, there are some ridiculous photos of me asking the Bridesmaid or Best Man to move over so I could sit. I recommend a rehearsal.
