As long as there is a covering on them. As a guest in a nice dress I would find it itchy if my legs are bare of annoyed if it caught and made a tear or pull in my clothing.

Unless the whole thing is casual and it would be expected.

Why are your chairs $4? I rented some and they were much cheaper. Maybe go for simpler chairs and.or try another company.

You want people to sit in hay for your wedding ceremony?  Like a bale of hay or a pile of hay on the floor?  Besides being uncomfortable, I’m not sure this will actually be budget friendly.

If I were you and I went with the hay, I’d cover it.  But I think I’d also go with the chairs.

you may want to look at the prices for bales of hay. In my area they run about $9 each and each bale would sit 2 (comfortably, possibly 3) The park most likely wouldnt want you to leave them there…but hey you never know

Honestly, I would hate sitting on hay, even if it was covered with something. Chairs would be much for comfortable because you can sit back and fall asleep if you get bored, there is nothing to lean on if you use hay.

If you cover the bales with picnic table clothes or something creative it helps on the comfort and also put two bales per chair so you can assemble back support. ( check out pintrest for the haybale chairs)

Unless you have a truck, you gotta include delivery fees and also your removal plans.

It think its cute but can be rather costly.

@orchid84:  LOL too funny 🙂  I guess you could spread the hay out on the ground and lie down for a nap, if you had a blanket it may even be more comfortable than sleeping in a chair!

I’d be concerned about hay allergies. Many people have them, and even with coverings it could be a problem.

I’m with Texasgirl…. check the prices.  Looking for hay last year (just mulch hay for my garden, not even hay for feeding), the cheapest I found was almost $4 a bale.  And those were ones that you could not use for seating – they had water damage and were smelling a bit musty.

If it were me… just do the chairs.  That’s not an outrageous price for chairs, I don’t think. (I know, every little bit helps, but I don’t think you’ll save enough money, if any, to make it worthwhile.)
