My FH and I are on a budget also we are having a lot of guest come from out of town. We decided to have our wedding and reception at a hotel in the same room just so that it will be easier for my out of state guest. I would like to have my guest already seated at the tables during the wedding ceremony. I really don't want a traditional wedding, the ceremony is going to be short and sweet. But do you all think it will look tacky to have the guest seated at their tables during the ceremony? I've attached pictures below so that you can get an idea of the set up. I figured it would be nice because my guest will not have to move.
