Seated Ceremony with Tables?

Have any of you had or are planning to have your guests seated at tables for your ceremony? We have two rooms for rent and are trying to find a way to use one of our rooms for both the ceremony and to eat at while using the other one for dancing for the reception. If so, how'd you arrange the tables? We're planning for 75 guests so i know it's do-able but I am just having a hard time imagining the layout.

    We aren't planning this, nor have we been to a wedding like this. BUT I've seen it on the 4 weddings tv show before! Usually the tables are separated by an aisle with low centerpieces so everyone can see the ceremony.

    We are only having that situation if it rains during our ceremony. Like you said, it's definitely doable!

    I'm not planning this, but I haven't attended a wedding like this. As a guest, my only complaint was that it was harder to see what was going on, but then again, I'm short, so there's a change I wouldn't have been able to see in a regular set-up either.

    My best friend's wedding was situated like this and it was exactly as FutureMrsD described. Aisle down the center, she didn't have any centerpieces at all, and everyone got to see the ceremony.

    You would just put tables on both sides of an aisle. We are doing this as our Plan B if it rains. Our ceremony and reception are at the same place, but the ceremony is outside. If it rains, we will move the ceremony into the reception space and just have guests sit at their tables.

    Last wedding I went to was like this. Fun sketch for reference.
    They had the aisle lined with tables and their sweetheart table on the left side. Ceremony took place on the dance floor by the DJ and bar. Their placecard and gift table were in the back and they entered through the door back there

    We are doing this. Went to a wedding like this indoor and it was fine. Ours will be bigger and outdoor so we haven’t figured that out.
