I think it’s great that you want to utilize every single thing you can being on a budget. I just don’t know that I would ask my guests to carry their chairs to the reception. What about the venue? Can they move them for you? Can whoever is doing your setup for the reception move them after the ceremony?

I went to a wedding at a beach house where the ceremony was on the sand and the reception was back up at the house.  We carried our chairs from the sand back to the house after the ceremony was over.  I thought it was kind of weird, but given the situation, there really wasn’t any alternative.  

If everyone is physically able, I’d say have each guest carry their own chair.  Obviously grandparents and kids can’t carry their own chairs, so maybe have a relative carry those people’s chairs.

It’s not a big deal.  I honestly had forgotten all about moving the chairs at that wedding until I read your post.

Can you hire a DOC and/or have some of the groomsmen/ushers help with it, maybe? Thinking about my own guest list, I know a slew of children, middle-aged people with back/knee problems, and elderly guests who would have a hard time carrying chairs.
