    Book it! If the rest of it is so gorgeous who cares about the disco room? : (35 votes)

    No way! It will spoil the entire night. Plough on and find an alternative. : (2 votes)

    I don’t think it’d be that bad. Great decorations and the inside reception could be awesome. Use lots of candleights and you won’t be able to see much.

    I would book it. My reception ends at 11 p.m. I mean most people will want to go home by 12 any how.

    Can you stay outside until midnight and do the dancing out there?  Id book it, Im sure you can find a way to decorate it so it looks amazing!

    I say book it. Can you light candles? Just throw a ton of candles in there and nobody will notice the decor. Candles hide a multitude of sins!

    I think that if that is the law then you are going to have to deal with it no matter where you book.  However, they should be able to describe and send pictures of where you will be forced to move to.

    I would book it, too. You can always dress it up with some creative decorations.

    Definitely book it.  Sounds like it’ll be beautiful.

    Book it! If as you said, dancing is an afterthought for your wedding, then it sounds almost perfect!

    The lights will be off right? Who cares how ugly it is?

    I would book it. Have you ever been to a night club during the daytime? Bleh! Put a little extra in your budget for some good lighting, and you should be okay.

    Sounds like you love the place. I think most guests will be having a great time by that point, and you’ll have a million beautiful photos, so who cares if the midnight-3am slot is in a less beautiful room. Go for it.

    i’d book it!  the rest of the place sounds too amazing to be true – and late a night when you’re dancin’ and rockin out – everyone will be having so much fun and no one will notice anything about the place

    I’m going to dissent – i wouldn’t book a venue w/ no pictures that would require such a compromise without being SURE! Can you keep looking?

    Maybe invite all of the neighbors so no one complains about the noise and stay  outside 😉
