No chairs for the ceremony on the beach??
Posted 11 December 2009 - 08:36 PM
Mind you, I am getting married on the Caribbean coast of Cost Rica, not a popular location for weddings due to the lack of all inclusive resorts. However we choose this location because we had traveled there before and loved the natural beauty of this underdeveloped area and wanted our guests to have a unique travel experience.
That being said....When I asked about renting chairs for the ceremony on the beach, this is the response that I got:
NOW, ABOUT CHAIRS ON THE BEACH. I HONESTLY ADVISE AGAINST IT. WHY? BECAUSE YOU WILL BE IN THE SAND AND CHAIR LEGS SINK IN THE SAND AND WELL, SOMETIMES PEOPLE TIP OVER. THERE IS NOT A HIGH AND LOW TIDE HERE IN THE CARIBBEAN SO THE SAND IS LOOSE AND SOFT. MOST CEREMONIES I HAVE DONE ON THE BEACH HAVE THE GUESTS STAND IN A SEMI-CIRCLE WITH THE COUPLE TO BE MARRIED IN THE MIDDLE END OF THE OTHER SIDE CREATING A CIRCLE OF LOVE AND SUPPORT.
I have never heard of having the guests stand at the ceremony, does this seem odd?? Anyone ever hear of ceremony like this? The ceremony is going to be short and sweet, but I'm still not very comfortable with guests not having the option to sit down.
I don't want to seem over demanding...any thoughts on this?

Malisa, would you mind telling me a little bit more about your ceremony? What do you mean when you say your guests were part of the ceremony? How many people did you have? I'll have between 35-40 people and not sure and I'm trying to get a better idea of how it would be...
