great question!!! i was recently thinking about the same thing.

These are relatively cute and will raise the temp from 10-30 degrees.  They rent for 95 in my area. I am not sure how many you would need though?  Perhaps 3 on the outside of the chair set up and three on the other side to create a sort of heat box?  The best thing about them is that they aren’t ugly..

They help, but you do have to stay within about 10 feet of them. The last wedding I went to was outside at night, about 45ish degrees at the coolest, and they had a fire pit already at the venue. I sat around it for like 10 minutes but when we started dancing everyone warmed up so fast they didnt need the fire. So i would say it is very useful for the people who wont want to dance, or the older guests.

Well, I live in AZ and every restaurant with a patio has those and a lot of people get the ones from Costco for their back patios. I love them!

@azbride: how close do you have to stand to them, how many do the restuarants have to keep them warm?

A lot of restaurants in NYC have these for their outdoor seating.  You do have to be pretty close to them to keep warm.  I’d say there’s one for every 2-4 tables on the sidewalk or patio.

A lot of restaurants put up some type of awning to help keep the heat in and they place 1-2 for every four tables.

So it wouldn’t help if you had a set up something like this during the ceremony? You would need a tent or something like that?

You don’t have to have a tent, but if you do, then everyone would be plenty toasty with the heaters. I don’t know if the heaters help more in different climates or not. Here it’s super dry (no moisture to hold heat) so you only feel the warmth if you are within a few feet of the heater.
