Are you looking for non-traditional ceremony seating for an outdoor wedding?  Think beyond chiavari chairs or uniform wooden chairs as we explore five ceremony seating alternatives.  While a ceremony may not last that long, its still important to have proper seating, setting the mood for your reception festivities.  Its often an integral piece to your wedding decor that often gets overlooked, but has a lot of potential to be fun, different and uniquely you. Whether your ceremony is laid back and relaxed with hay bales or quilts, or more traditional with church pews and benches, here we share some ideas to inspire you.

1. Hay Bales

We love the look of assorted wooden chairs so much, we’ve been slowly adding them to our own inventory. The look creates a less-uniform more inviting feeling. {source: Amy & Stuart Photography via Style Me Pretty}

4. Quilts, Blankets and Picnic Baskets
