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!
