I think that’s a great idea. I am really hoping to find a venue for the ceremony and reception, just seems SO much easier!

The only thing you may need to consider is, are the tables going to be set for dinner during the ceremony? It may be a bit awkward to have everyone sitting there with a full place setting. And if not, when would the set-up be?

I love this idea. One of my coworkers did something like this and it was really nice because the people got extra time to talk to the people at their table. They served little mini apps beforehand- one or two things per person before the ceremony started.

I think it’s a lovely idea. I’d make absolutely sure that everyone could see from every seat though. I’d hate to be really far away and not be able to see the ceremony.

My only suggest would be for the two of you to sit closer to the dance floor/cake area so that it is easier for you to get to them and maybe catch a breather at your table.  Otherwise you may find you don’t get a chance to sit down.

your set up is VERY similar to mine. what will you use as an aisle runner? I am having problems thinking of cute ideas here on the cheap

where is the focal point of the room? our chuppah will be at the focal point (its already the focal point bc of fire place). then we will be kind of to the side of it. here is a mock up of mine. i am almost embarassed to show it but here it is:

Hmm, as I said I think it’s super important, especially if you have assigned seating, to make sure that everyone is going to be able to see. Staggering the tables should have that effect from seeing your diagram πŸ™‚

btw i do really like your ideas πŸ˜€ but i think it would be more preferable if your tables were closer to the action. I think you will feel out of the light with your table over there. could you do the same setup but by the dance floor? is there room?

i think chocolates at the table will be great. you dont want them filling up on rolls before the ceremony even starts. maybe some pretzels or something.

I think you’d  better watch where you seat yourselves,especially next to the bar and music. It will be so loud and crowded you’ll get a headache and never be able to get through. lol  Sitting anywhere next to the music is miserable for most people. That’s where the people you’re least fond of usually go. Wink
