So i need your feedback/thoughts about the chairs&tables setup for my ceremony. Here’s the photo of my venue
I have 2 rooms for my reception. They actually are connected, just have a wooden door in the center as a divider.
The left side is a ballroom and the right side is a lounge room. I was thinking about having hors d’oeuvres buffet tables in the ballroom (I’m having cocktail party btw). Then, I’m gonna have photobooth, dj, dancefloor, and desserts in the lounge room with 6 tall cocktails tables & some chairs. I was thinking about having round tables before in the ballroom so guests can seat while eating, but some people told me to just have chairs & cocktail tables since I’m not gonna provide full meal.
What do you guys think?
I’m planning to have cocktail hour at 6:30 (1 hour) at the rooftop, then people go down (First dance starts in the lounge room) and after that they can eat the heavier hors d’oeuvres in the ballroom, and then toast, cutting cake, dance and more fun stuffs till 11pm in the lounge room.
Do you think it’s better to have round tables with chairs or no chairs? And do you think its ok if guests have to move to another room when the MOH & bestman are giving the speech?
Need your feedback! Thank you!! 🙂

God I love your venue. With similar venues I’ve seen long tables instead of circular tables. So basically big long picnic style tables with chairs around. A few of them adds to the rustic look and also leaves plenty of space for dancing.
If I wasn’t providing a full meal I might like the cocktail idea to keep everyone focused on mingling. Plenty of people will be up and down to get more cocktails.
Oh and I love hte idea of just a cocktail style dinner. Wanted to do that for my wedding actually. 🙂

Beatiful venue! I like the cocktail idea too, to encourage mingling, and so people don’t expect a full meal.

EM1010: I’m doing a cocktail reception with heavy apps buffet style. I’m having a seat for everyone because who wants to stand for four hours? Why cause a musical chairs situation? high heels, plates, purses and standing does not equal fun. I will have high tops, lounge seating for the dance area and long tables for people to sit and eat their food. People can choose to mingle, but if they want to sit down they can.

WOAH! Your venue is awesome! I love that look! Does the venue have pitures o previous events set up different ways? Or a smaple floorplan? That might help to get an idea! it’s really pretty without tables and chairs – can’t imagine all set up & pretty!
