    Is there an area that is shaded by trees?? I wouldnt have a lot of chairs…just some for people that are older and may need to sit. maybe a couple of higher tables that people can stand around maybe some blanket for a picnic ish type feel. not sure what your theme is.

    I voted yes, but I have a question. Will the weather be nice during your wedding? Maybe nix the tent idea and just rent tables and chairs for the garden lawn so people can continue hanging out outside before going in for dinner and dancing.

    Forgot to add: I wouldn’t be able to bring myself to pay that much money to have a tent put up just for an hour

    Yeah, I need more info too. Your wedding date isn’t beside your online name, or location.

    Tents look great in wedding blog photos though, don’t they? Tempting… and costly. But it may be worth it for you, considering your venue and time of year, i don’t know.

    Is there a way to set up one of those canopy and you shouldnt have to get chairs maybe a couple for people that are older that cant stand long or use some from inside the reception??

    If you are crunched for space in the barn then id say do a canopy. do you have pictures by chance?? Is there a bar set up in the barn??
