Make an outdoor wedding a bit more intimate by setting up chairs in a spiral. How fun would it be to see each and every guest as you circle your way to the center? (See all photos from the wedding!)

For a warm and personal atmosphere, Kendel and Adam situated chairs so they could sit amongst their guests and take center stage when necessary. The participants in the wedding stood up where they were seated to do their readings, embracing the free form arrangement. (See all photos from the wedding)

Work with the space you have! If a tree’s planted smack dab in the middle of your ceremony locale, build out seating around it. (See all photos from the wedding)

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
