Anyone use beach mats instead of chairs?

Recommended Posts

Almost forgot,

The bride actual aisle was in the front of all the guest. So she walking in front of everyone not down the traditional aisle down the middle, so no one was looking up at her as she made her way to the alter. Also, my friends wedding was very, very casual. Everyone was in surfer boy/girl attire, the groom & groomsmen even had solid dark brown board shorts on with nicer White button down shirts and most of the girls wore sundresses. It completely fit the two of them perfectly :), they are surfers and actually moved to Costa Rica after the wedding :).

How about doing mats with cushions running into a semi circle or circle.However you do need to think of the less able guests.

What about lounge furniture like poofees not sure on the spelling.

It could work out expensive though

i agree with the others on your guests may not feel comfortable sitting on the floor. if you set them up like this, i think it looks great. or, if you have less people you can have one row of chairs slightly angled on both sides.

I think this looks beautiful. We may do chairs after all. I will let you know what we decide! Thanks to everyone for their thoughts!

Hey everyone,

I ran across this today in Style me Pretty looking for inspiration, a wedding with beach seating :).... Thought I would share if anyone was wanting to see what this wedding was like :). It looks like there are 2 benches in the background as well and the guest count is pretty large :)

I think it depends on how formal your beach wedding is going to be if your all casual some raffia Matt's could be cute or even all one color beach towels if decorated correctly.  But if people are going to be super dressed up I'd say not.

we also thought of beach mats, & having them personalized for the guest to take with them. think were going to stick with the chair since the venue already had them, but love the idea!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
