Chairs aren't even allowed on most beaches there anymore (lots of rules changed recently). But my wedding coordinator said that lots of brides had chose not to have chairs in the past because it's kind of fun to let people come barefoot and stand in the sand if you're going for the casual type wedding. She also said the average length wedding there is liek 12 minutes and it just isn't a big deal to have people standing.
My cousin also got married in Maui about 4 years ago when chairs were allowed on all beaches. My aunt said that the chairs did sink.. And she said although the chairs are nice, it wasn't really necessary due to the short length of the ceremony.
BUT, I'm like you and am skeptical about this. I chose to have a private location and I'm bringing in chairs

Toni - I am in the same boat. As much as I wanted chairs... the cost is just ridiculous. What I've seen is about $5-10 per chair plus at least a $200 setup fee. I can't justify it.
My issue is... How will my guests all see though? What if my 6'2" brother blocks my 4'9" best friend's view? I've got about 30 guests and this stupid chair issue seems to be what is stressing me out the most.

And thank you for sharing your pictures Malisa....I thought they turned out great! So I will be fine with not having chairs if it just isn't possible or it turns out to be way too costly but I honestly would prefer to have them...even if there aren't chairs for everyone, I would like a few so that the older guests at least have the option of sitting down.
I'm currently waiting on a quote for the chairs...I guess that will be my deciding factor!
At least now I know that it isn't completely unheard of to not have the chairs.
