Hmm…I think you’re going to have to talk to your caterer about this one.  We are moving chairs from the ceremony to the reception during cocktail hour (3 different locations on an estate), but it’s only a 30 second walk, and we STILL had to hire another worker to accomplish this.  That would be another idea for you though.  If you were able to pay say $100 for additional help for moving the chairs, that is still a lot cheaper than renting 2 sets.  Otherwise, I’d probably splurge for the reception and rent cheaper ones for the ceremony 🙂

I highly doubt that they would be able to do that for you.  My ceremony and reception sites were a 45 second walk apart.  And our caterer insisted on two sets of chairs.  I do think, however, that you could use silver chairs for the reception and more plain white chairs (which would be significantly less) for the ceremony site.

I say speak to your caterer; it’s always worth a try. And ya I agree with you, that is a lot for chairs!

We’re moving our chairs from the ceremony to the reception (during our cocktail hour), but we’re doing it with a little help from our friends.  Our caterer definitely wouldn’t do it.  Our wedding isn’t super formal, so it’s not a big deal, but if yours is, I might consider hiring someone to do this for you or getting less fancy chairs for your ceremony.  Good luck!
