I wouldn’t be thrilled, but 15-20 minutes isn’t too bad and I would suck it up.

As a short person, yeah I wouldn’t be happy.  Plus it is really hard to stand still for 20 minutes, especially in heels.

@JoJo Bananas: Ah yes, I forgot to factor in the heels. This is true. And as a fellow short person I tend to agree with you… it can be awful trying to see over people who are several inches taller than you!

My bridesmaid is getting married on July 4th, and has blown her budget to the point that she didn’t want to rent chairs for a 15-20 minute ceremony.  I’ll come back here after the 4th to let you know how I liked it!  My reaction to her definitely did not come across as thrilled but, it is what it is!

The thing is, it’s not really 15-20 minutes.  It’s 15-20 plus time if I arrived early or if you start late.  And I agree with JoJo.  As a short person, I wouldn’t be able to see.  But as a hypothetical guest who loves you, I would get over it I’m sure!

I’d be pissed because Im tiny and I know I would end up behind some freakishly large cousin or somethin like always. Your guests come because they want to watch and enjoy your ceremony.

I attended a friends wedding on a lake in tennessee years ago.  It was standing room only, 15 minute ceremony…not a big deal.  I had on heels in the woods pretty much too.

I’d do it if I had no other choice, but I really wouldn’t be happy about it.

My friend’s backyard ceremony last summer had limited seating. I stood for the ceremony (20 minutes…) and it was totally fine. Make sure your ushers or whatever are helping people to find good places to stand so everyone can see.

I would try to work around this and get seats for everyone. Guests do not like to stand around. Even if the ceremony is just 20 minutes its still a long time to be standing

@MrsRuby: I’m sure it will be okay. I doubt I would be very comfortable but it’s only 20minutes and since you are a friend/family member, I would not mind doing it.
