I would think one room would be enough if you don’t expect all the moms to attend. It’s nice that you’re thinking ahead and trying to accomodate them! I wouldn’t have thought much about it, but I don’t plan to worry too much about whipping out the boob to breastfeed regardless of where I am. Especially with all the nursing covers and such that they make these days. But if the woman are in fancy dresses it might be tricky, and most people are more discreet/conservative than I am.

I think one room is plenty too. I think its a nice idea to have this room available and if they need to nurse at the same time thats what nursing blankets and covers are for.

I have the same ‘problem’,  I expect there will at least 4 breastfeeding mums at our reception. I also want to have a room for the kids where they can go play or watch a dvd or perhaps take a nap if they get cranky. So I’m not sure whether to try and find 2 separate rooms (will be tricky), give up on one of the rooms or just have them share…

Can you have a word with your venue and see what they suggest? There might be a smaller room nearby they can let you have for the evening. One room should be enough though for all the mums to share.
