Ok, so I have an idea to fix my dilemma with limited space for our backyard wedding, I'm just really nervous about how it could end up looking. We plan on having a smaller intimate wedding with a vintage, shabby chic feel and are only inviting 100 people max. Due to limited space and budget(3,000 for EVERYthing) I was thinking of setting up long tables in rows with an aisle down the middle (like in a regular ceremony) and with chairs set up all facing the 'altar' and then for the reception just turning the chairs around. Has anybody been to or had a wedding with this kind of set up? Was it enjoyable, or distracting? I'm really anxious to see what it would look like. Do any of ya'll have any links to pictures of a wedding with a similiar set up? Thanks fellow future brides!
