Where are these venues? Can you post this to the local boards? That might be more helpful.

Based on Google searches of those venues, I think you’re in Philadelphia, so I’m going to move your post to your local boards. You may get a better response there!

  • Wedding: June 2011

I got married at the Please Touch Museum this past June. I loved it!  I had a much smaller wedding than you, only 75 people with my reception being in the carousel room and I was worried it would be too small, but it worked out great.  I think 200 people in Hamilton Hall (I’m assuming that is where your reception will be) would be perfect!  If you’re worried about size, you could always just put 8 people per table instead of the usual 10. THat is what I did to make the room feel less empty. I’ve had girlfriends who have been to weddings there with all sizes and size of the room was never a complaint, the rooms speak for themselves there. they are gorgeous!

I think I’d rather have a too big room than a too small room. You can always play with table arrangements and layouts to make it feel closer, but you CAN”T change it if it’s too small.  I went to a wedding once and we were crammed in to tables of 10 and could hardly move your chair back to get out. It was awful.


Good luck!!
