    charliesangel09 :  I would have chairs. You have to remember that it’s not 15 minutes for your guests. They will be there standing and waiting before you are even thinking of walking down the aisle.

    Oh man, I was leaning towards no but julies1949 comment makes so much sense. I’d provide them. Yeah, most people would be fine standing, but I agree that they may be standing longer than just 15mins since they’ll arrive a bit earlier than you. Plus, on the off chance that someone has an injury or is feeling faint or ill, it’d be better to have one for that guest than to have them awkwardly lying in the sand when you walk down the aisle. 

    Kind of sucks to pay that price, but I feel like it might be worth it for peace of mind in the end.

    charliesangel09 :  As a guest I would HATE not having a chair to park my butt on. Obviously I will stay and watch you get married but I would be supper annoyed at the lack of chairs.

    Chairs are a non-negotiable, imo.

    I didn’t have chairs for my wedding ceremony, but then again our venue (with available seats) was just a few meters from the where the ceremony would take place.

    I would strongly suggest you think about the age and weather you’ll be having. I recently went to a garden wedding, and while I had no mind being stand during the 15-20 minutes ceremony..there was so much sun which made standing up super annoying (I would have like to at least have a rest). Plus, if it is in the beach…could the sand get to hot that gests would feel uncomfortable with it getting into their shoes?

    In this wedding there were also some older people who definetely seemed to be in need of a seat.

    Glad you are considering chairs! You don’t need anything fancy, just as long as there’s SOMETHING for the guests.

    If the package is too expensive, look at oursourcing and see if other companies can do the set up/take down for a lesser cost.

    I’d park my ass right in the sand. It’s a beach!

    I would definitely say do chairs. Maybe you can rent chairs from someplace else instead of doing them through the package?

    Yup.  As someone who attended a “really quick beach wedding” and due to unforeseen circumstances started 45 minutes late which meant I was actually standing for 90 minutes (25 minutes early + 45 minute delay + 20 minute ceremony, not including the walk over to the reception area), chairs would have been really nice.  Always chairs.  Always.
