We are planning our wedding for September and have put in a permit application to have the ceremony in Carl Schurz park but parks dept is telling me that chairs aren't allowed. They will let me have 10 chairs since I have elderly relatives to accommodate but I was really hoping for chairs for all guests (75). Any thoughts? It will be a short ceremony, 30 minutes, reception follows at an indoor location. We have the ability to have the ceremony at the reception location. The park is central to our story, it's where we met, so we really want to have the ceremony there. On the other hand, it's rude to ask people to stand.
what have others done?
