@MabelleBliss:  I do not think that is a stupid question to call and ask them about. I was married at city hall and don’t recall anyone there having guests. (Including husband and me as we were eloping) Our officiant offered to take us outside under a tree. It was a beautiful day and I am so happy I said yes to that. — Anyway, I recommend calling to ask about guests. If they say they can’t accommodate guests, ask if an outside ceremony is an option (weather permitting) because there would be plenty of room for friends and family outside. Plus… it’s a nice memory.

I’m pretty sure you couldn’t have 15-20 people, but you should really call and ask. Could everyone be waiting at a nearby restaurant for a celebratory meal?

This is completely dependent on your City.  I live in Small Town, BFE and we could have probably fit 25 people in that room on the benches but we had just 1 witness.  Our mayor also opened the place on a Saturday for us but that’s probably not likely in a bigger locale.

I went to a City Hall wedding last year and there were 27 of us all up.
