    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!
          22 booked!

            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!
