My fiancee and I are looking at Round Hill, but I’m concerned about the dance floor. It’s not in the middle of the room, like in a traditional banquet facility, and instead is through several sets of French doors at the end of the room. Has anyone had their wedding here? I love everything about the space except for the dance floor—I’m worried that it will break up the room.

i’m getting married there next july and i couldn’t be happier that the dance floor area is separate. i’m not quite sure what you mean by breaking up the room though. are you concerned that the flow of the evening will feel choppy since people will have to go back & forth? i can see it being potentially difficult for a photographer, particularly if there is only one, to try to capture everything going on in both rooms. but it seems like the venue is pretty accommodating and if you have really solid music people who have either done events there before or are willing to hear your concerns and make it work, it shouldn’t be a problem.
for us, we’ll have a slightly older crowd who’s musical taste may or may not be shared with me & FH, so i’m happy they won’t have to feel like they’re being “subjected” to our music and they can sit and drink and talk to each other in relative peace and quiet all night if they want. and then the dancers can can cut loose as much as they want too! i have other friends who have had their weddings at venues set up similarly and they have said nothing but great things about this type of set-up.
hopefully other brides will chime in – sorry if this wasn’t terribly helpful!

I visited there (ended up picking another venue for other reasons) and I actually really liked the separate dance floor thing. For one thing, that dance area is really goregeous and I’ve seen some really dramatic photos taken in there. And secondly, to repeat Jaxx317, I think having a separate room where parents and older folks can talk and visit without shouting over the music. FI has a very old grandmother and we always have to take turns sitting out in the lobby with her at weddings, because she can’t hear anything inside the lobby. I think it’s a plus!
