If you've got the freedom to skip traditional pews, you might want to try one of these beautiful layout ideas
Chairs arranged in circles around your altar will give everyone an equal view.
This works brilliantly for smaller wedding parties in an intimate venue - and translates just as well outdoors as it does inside.
Similarly, for a bigger wedding party, opt for a semi-circle layout instead.
Talk to your venue about the best way to utilise your space without compromising anyone's view!
For a smaller wedding party, chairs arranged at an angle will add to the intimacy of the ceremony.
And for a quirky circular spin, consider a spiral!
It looks spectacular photographed from above.

For a super-chilled beach or countryside wedding, swerve conventional seating and use blankets instead.
This can then transfer into a relaxed reception area - provide each seating area with a basket of weather-relevant goodies! (We're talking suncream, snacks, paper fans...)
Hay bales make a chilled-out alternative to 'normal' seating - just make sure you provide blankets to avoid any itchiness!

A quirky zig-zag shape will hopefully avoid any straining necks.
It will also look brilliant in photos, too.
Benches covered in soft cushions and adorned with gorgeous flowers make for a wonderfully modern twist on classic seating.
Alternatively: mix-n-match sofas and armchairs will add a delightfully whimsical feel to your ceremony area.
Check with your venue that they're happy for you to bring in furniture beforehand - and also ask if they can recommend anyone you can hire from!
The only slight issue?
We imagine your guests will get too comfy to want to stand up...!
