At my sister’s wedding, they had to do this. I don’t remember how many guests were in each room … there was definitely a main room and an overflow room, but both were nice, and my sister and her husband walked around and visited the tables in both rooms. It seemed to work fine.

I don’t off the top of my head, but I could certainly ask my sister. I think maybe they just had someone let everyone in the other room know that all that was starting, and then people walked over and stood in the larger room to watch …?

@nushka:  I’ve been to one wedding that had two rooms that didn’t really work, but another that did.  Are the two rooms open to each other, like mostly open?  The one where it didn’t work, the rooms had only a small doorway between and you couldn’t see the bridal party or dancing.  Most of us in the second room wandered off pretty early because we felt very second rate and it was boring being outside of the action.

The one where it did work, the second room was very open to the main room and so it felt more like people were spilling out as opposed to being isolated.  Didn’t mind a bit, could see everything.

I went to a wedding like this and it didn’t work out well. The guests in the second room felt like the “B team” and we missed out on everything. No one came into the second room to announce the first dance, cake cutting, etc.
