    I think it is possible. Check out this post about a smores roast. I think it would be a cool idea, especially since it will be winterish.

    I know that it can be done at my venue. I’m planning an outside wedding by a gazebo, a cocktail hour on a covered proch, and then a reception in a covered pavilion. If it rains though, the ceremony will be in the pavilion, cocktail hour still on the proch, and then reception in the pavilion again. They will switch it up during the cocktail hour.

    So the timing is possible. Not sure about the logistics of the guests outside in the winter though. Will the heaters be enough without something to hold the heat in?

    The venue looks stunning!! The heaters really are key. Would you have to rent the heaters or will they be provided? Have you calculated the cost of additional heaters? How does this pricetag look in comparison to the tent rental? Tent rentals can be outrageous. One party supply company wanted to charge $5k for a tent. We found another company who would provide the same tent for $300! We just had to pay them a bit extra to drive an hour to the venue. As long as you can ensure that your guests will stay warm, it is not unrealistic to flip a room from ceremony to reception. I’ve seen it done beautifully and you can reuse decorations to save $. Best of luck to you!
