How can we have chair seating at our park venue when chairs aren't allowed?

My fiancé and I are having our ceremony in a public garden in New Jersey and have been told that we are not allowed to bring chairs for our guests. We have discussed buying nice picnic blankets and laying them about for our guests to sit on, but I would still like something a little more "chair-like." How do you create comfortable seating rather than just having guests on their feet the whole time?

Charlie & Quinten's barefoot faux-forest indoor picnic wedding

Tons of handmade pillows, hay bales, leaves, and picnic blankets — it must be an outdoor wedding, right? Nope! But it may as well be. Due to some wet weather, these two brought the outdoors in for a green and brown faux-forest wedding. Even the flower girl and ring bearer got in on the theme action. Chalk up some bare feet, some lovely poetry, and a big ol' party, and you're ready for forest-y fun indoors.

Krys & Chris' Scottish picnic wedding in the Redwoods

Lots of DIY, thousands of origami stars, a feathery bouquet, a surprise lightsaber arch… and a bouquet tossed from a trebuchet! For reals, ya'll. Except it went slightly differently than practiced. Plus, you'll want to see how the groom and his best man made up for some lost time in this second marriage. OH, and for something completely rad, take a guess who wore the special Batman garter. It definitely wasn't the bride!

Heather & Johnathan's nerdy summer picnic wedding

These two had some interesting dilemmas: managing expectations from a very Catholic family and a not-so-Catholic family, balancing the needs of disabilities and the recovery community, and having a super low budget. But we can all learn from this bride's kick-ass attitude about keeping things accessible and authentic! Plus, we're totally behind any wedding that ends with a D&D campaign.

A sunny picnic wedding with lawn games and love

Carly BishThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them sent over this stunning, sun-soaked picnic wedding and we ate it up. But when we found out that it was held at her childhood home, we knew it was really special to her. See, Carly's brother married Kristin. Kristin's sister, Chaitra (the bride), met and married one of Carly's brother's best friends since childhood, Ryan (the groom). So their meeting (and loving) was inevitable. Sweet story aside, let's get on to the deets: lots of DIY decor, handmade fascinators, picnic blankets as reception tables, lawn games, ribbon wands (perfect for the nearby kitteh)… it's your own virtual vacation.
