@whitemochi622:  If you prefer that they not go inside:

1. place a pretty ribbon on the doors of the reception venue so it looks like it is tied off. You can’t actually tie off the doors as that would be a fire hazard.

2. have a sign that directs your guests around the side of the building to the patio.

3. have a gift table outside and inside ( even better would be if your guests have their gifts delivered before the wedding- a hint for you in the future)

You may not be able to prevent guests from going inside. Where are the washrooms?

@whitemochi622:  You can do signs or your coordinator should be present and can direct people to happy hour.  Beautiful venue!
