Aug Wedding + Tent + Seating/Table Issue
FI and are a doing a laid back wedding on the beach (with tent/tables on the grass area beside the beach.)
Our issue is (well a lot of things! ha!) but we're having somewhere between 80-110 guests, depending on how many fam members come from out of state.
We're not having a sit down dinner, we're doing smores, sweets and a savory "late night snack" table. We want to do couches/fun seating + some tables and chairs. But should we do a chair for every single person that RSVPs?
What size tent should we look into? Or should we try to do an outdoor one without a tent and just order a smaller tent (or 2) just in case of bad weather? (Like THIS pic from Style me pretty)
To be honest, I'd really like to have no tent, or just a smaller tent and have a lot more outdoor space/open air space than tents. I LOVE that look! And nothing about this wedding is formal or traditional so stuffy seating is something I'd really like to avoid!
How can we navigate the seating/tent/outdoor/couch stuff?!
Has anyone done an outdoor ceremony/reception like this before?
