I already booked the reception hall. I also just realized that b/c of the layout of the hall there isn’t a separate area for the cocktail hour. Which means that the cocktail hour and reception will both be in the same space. Has anyone did this? How did it work? I guess I’m wondering b/c I wanted the photographer to be able to take pictures of the reception hall decorations before everyone got in there. thoughts?

Maybe you could send the photographer in there while you are getting ready and just have fewer pictures during this time? I am doing this same thing (saving money by not renting out a third room at my venue) and am just planning on having the photographer take those photos while I’m getting ready. I figure a few photos during this time will be sufficient!
Just a suggestion!

I have been to a wedding where they did this and it worked really well. As kimmmbop suggests, you could send over the photographer while you are getting ready, if you’re concerned about photos. From a guest perspective, it was rather nice to be in the same place, mingling and/or getting to know your table-mates.
