@tierneydale:  What an awesome venue! So is the idea that the main gallery will not be available to people to leave their belongings there and to relax there?  Are you able to get seating up to the rooftop?  Do they have couches or chairs?

This is what I’m thinking, but I’m not sure if it’s doable for you:

I like the receiving line idea as a transition up to the rooftop.

You could invite people to the rooftop for cake after dinner and proceed with dancing afterward.  Will there be lounge seating for people?  Can people remain in the main gallery if they prefer not to dance?

@tierneydale:  Actually most venues remove most tables after dinner to make room for dancing, there is rarely enough seating for ever singly guest after dinner. Do you have any alternative seating available, like couches or patio furniture, plush chairs, benches or anything like that? Is there a coat check at your venue?

As for the transition…. what if you did the toasts at the end of the meal and then finished off with, “join us on the roof for the couples first dance”, and then everyone goes up.
