Chair Rentals for Beach Ceremony. Please Help!!!
I am having my ceremony on the beach in August. I was looking at renting chairs for the ceremony. It is almost $600 to rent 100 chairs and to have them deliver and set it up. Kinda silly since we are only using them for about 20-30 minutes. The manager of the restaurant that I am having the reception at, which is across the street from the beach, suggested to not have chairs but to have people stand (but there would be a few chairs in front for grandparents and such). He said that he has seen it done many times before, and it's too much work and money to use them for such a short time. Also, since the sand is not a rigid surface, the chairs don't sit very well. I'm not sure if it I should do this with or without chairs. There may be people standing around us, getting in the pictures. I' am on a budget, and $600 on chairs is a pretty pricey. Please give me your thoughts, opinions, suggestions! I have no idea what to do!!!
