I am doing something similar for mine.  We are having a ~ 70 person camping wedding, in which about half of the attendees are staying in cabins locally because they don’t like to camp.  I have some chairs, we have one picnic table, some folding tables, and I am asking my campers to bring over their camping chairs.  I am also using the logs that are surrounding the site as seating, and doing the same thing as you – throwing nice vintage blankets over them for seating.  You know your guests better than I do, but I was more worried that folks wouldn’t want to sit on the ground if they’re wearing something nice (or uncomfortable/unflattering when seated).

I understand your on a budget but you have to have seating for every guest and I wouldnt count picnic blankets as seating. Mabye look into logs or making your own benches with scrap wood.

Check out yard sales and such for quilts! And if you want something off the ground, what about throwing said quilt over a bale or two of hay? Somebody on here actually bought bag chairs from WalMart that they stenciled their name and date on and gave as favors.
