Ceremony and Vow Ideas

gazebo alter and seating idea help needed


this is the very large gazebo where our ceremony will be held. it is actually made of 3 gazebos that form a pyramid shape. each of the many sides are 10 feet long. the alter area is also over 10 foot wide. 


here is a flyer that has a more centered view of the gazebo...



2 things im asking advice about- 
1- what is a good alter idea? i love the vintage dresser like in this pic..(but a little smaller- its a long walk from parking area and gazebo, and dont want to lug a huge one that far)
A vintage dresser, refinished with mustard yellow paint, a hanging antique window and an iron chandelier formed the ceremony altar.

and i will be using the hanging candle aubra from the above pic or the hanging lantern idea (below) with pomanders  to hang a set of 
1-3 from the front sections and behind the alter. 

Lanterns hung by white ribbon from the branches of the tree beneath which Sabena and Kevin said “I do.”

the question i have is- will the dresser  be to much? or out of place in the gazebo? what have you seen or done with outdoor alters?

the next question i have is seating. the info says it seats 60. but i do not think that it will seat that many for a wedding, so we will have over flow into the grass for seating. we have to rent chairs for there. there was a very small wedding held there and they rented white plastic lawn chairs, but all the guests were able to be seated in the gazebo it self. 

my question/concern is to allow seating for 80 and say 30- 40 fit in the gazebo, leaving the other 50 ish in the grass area in front. in order to give a more direct view of the elevated gazebo, and stay on the side walk for the isle i would have to make the "S" walk from behind and beside the grass area seating and then in front of them instead of beside them. is that ok or rude? i guess i would rather walk the s path and have guests see the ceremony then walk between the lawn seats and have them only see the backs of the guests in the gazebo. 

what do you think?
