I would personally want to have the place to myself (well not to myself lol that would be one boring wedding) but I suppose it depends whether this is in your budget and how much it means to you. Luckily our venue has a smaller private bar adjacent to the function room for our use, I would have been willing to pay for its use but it came in free with the venue. I would consider it though definately

It sounds like type of reception you are describing needs its own space.  It seems like the sports bar crowd would be competing with the wedding reception crowd.  I would think the sports bar customers would be annoyed with the wedding goings on as you described.  Some of your football fan guests could stray away from your wedding and go watch the game.  And…from what you are describing, how would you stop sports bar patrons/strangers from eating your food/drinks, signing your guest book, and possibly taking your gifts?  

Perhaps you could find another venue that you could have to yourself for less money. If not, I think it may be worth it paying the extra money to guarantee the atmosphere you want for your reception.

I would sacrifice the extra $$ and rent the place out. You are right, you want it to feel like a reception and it seems likely that your gifts could be taken, food eaten and basically party crashed by bar patrons, as PP said….This is definitely worth the dollars!

I would pay to have the place to ourselves. Like pp said, I would be worried about other customers coming in and eating the food that I have paid for for my guests. I definitely think it would be worth the extra money.

If you are paying for a DJ, have a dance floor and want to have things set out for favours, gifts, etc, I think it is worth having the space to yourself. By renting it exclusively, you won’t have to worry about people taking your things, random strangers complaining about your wedding or worrying about the atmosphere.
