Many of the weddings coming out on the other side of Covid-19 have the same motto: refresh! If you’re looking for a fresh, modern take on wedding ceremony seating, just sit back and relax.
There’s nothing wrong with traditional ceremony chair arrangements. Rows of meticulously placed seats with an aisle in between certainly does the job! However, there’s a refreshing wave rolling through, and you might just want to jump on it…when it comes to ceremony seating.
From socially-distant chic arrangements to rad rattan benches, we pulled together a few of our favorites from the past couple of years. Because even if your ceremony is brief in time, you’ll want the lovely memory to stick around much longer! Here’s how to get creative with your wedding ceremony seating – starting with untraditional arrangements:
Creative Wedding Ceremony Seating: Outside The Box Arrangements
As a result of finding a Covid-friendly, ceremony seating solution, many couples offered this pod setup for their their vow exchange! To that end, it’s easy to stagger, spread out and adorn these pod seats beautiful, fresh flowers. Certainly, fresh flowers give the impression of up-from-the-ground living foliage. Safe + adorable!
Winding Ceremony Aisles
As shown above, this winding aisle arrangement is really sweet and quite romantic!

Mix Chair Styles
Obviously, rattan is a major wedding trend right now. But benches in sand bring a whole new meaning to the boho romantic wedding. Given that bench ceremony seating isn’t too rare, think about mixing materials and lengths!
In contrast, how about something muuuch more comfortable? These vintage and upholstered chairs are two fold: they’re ultra cozy and make a big color statement. The unexpectedness of elegant seating like this outdoors is a really cute play.
