I’m really bad at this wedding planning thing, lol. Plus, I’m a full time student with THREE kids so I am so absentminded and cant think of what I need.
Doing an outdoor tent reception. Going to have the ceremony outside as well in close proximity to the tent. Going to have the chairs moved from the ceremony into the tent immediately after the ceremony to use in the tent.
Ummm, what do I need for my ceremony other than the chairs??? I was thinking an arbor or arch or something, and a small table or something for the sand unity part. Anything else???
I feel like I’m forgetting something!

Programs might be good. Aisle decoration is optional. If you’re actually getting married in August as your profile suggests, fans for your guests would be nice.
Bubble or flowers for a staged exit.

@2littleslauren: You’ll need a pillow for the rings and ring bearer to carry, if you’re having one. You’ll also need petals and a basket if you’re having a flower girl. You might need a guest book and pen with table, as well.

I’m getting married in July, I should fix my profile if it says August. Fans would be a good idea, it gets hot here (MI) maybe around 80-85, though its an evening so hopefully it will be cooler.
oh yes petals and a basket… Pillows. Ahhh!!! See I don’t remember I need any of this stuff. I’m the worst bride ever lol 😉

You will probably need something to define the front area where the ceremony is taking place. We used wrought-iron candle screens (surprisingly affordable in the summer months!). We also had a podium for our officiants to stand behind and have their readings rest on (this was also part of our sound system). We also had a small table in front of that with flowers and candles, which were decorative but also for our unity ceremony. Sounds yours will have the materials for your sand ceremony up there as well!
You don’t have to have music for your ceremony, but it is a nice touch. Any other sort of decor (aisle decor, tent decor) is optional but also nice.
Honestly, though, the bare minimum is chairs for your guests.
