I found a picture on a wedding blog of a picnic style wedding. There were no tables, just lots of blankets for people to sit on in the grass. I feel like this would be a great fit for our casual backyard BBQ wedding, but is it at all feasible in real life? Or is it just one of those ideas that only work for wedding photo shoots?

I think the idea is fun and cute; however I just had a picture in my head of my grandmother who finds it hard to get up of a chair… I think if you have older guests, they might be uncomfortable, especially if they have to sit for a long time..

I think it’s a great idea, but I do agree with the comment about seating for older guests. We have even tossed around the idea of a rehearsal lunch/picnic on the beach instead of the traditional dinner.

I would worry about elderly guests, too. You could always rent a few picnic tables to seat them and have the majority of guests on blankets. It’s an adorable idea!

I love this idea! But be sure to warn your guests ahead of time – I can imagine plenty of women showing up in skirts that are NOT realistic for ground sitting 🙂

Cute! Yeah, just throw in a few picnic tables and you’re good to go! How unique!

Yes, you just have to provide a seating option as well. (Think- ladies in short skirts, elderly, etc.)

I would definitely throw in some picnic tables in as well. I’d sit on the blankets, but I know my grandma would have something to say about needing a proper seat. 🙂

This is what we wanted to do for our wedding! : ) It’s so amazingly affordable, and I love picnics! You might want to book a venue that has a couple tables (for people with disabilities/limited range of motion) or bring some spare lawn chairs — but I would so totally go! (We ended up changing our plans because a summer wedding didn’t fit in the schedules.)
