Happy monday bees! I’ve got free time at work and was trying to figure out what would be the best way to set up my FH’s and mine wedding reception. I guess what I’m really in need of is some floor plan ideas/diagrams of how other people have done theirs. Like all the tables can go here and the dj is here and food is there..ect. Im looking for visuals b/c ide like to make a sketch of our venue based off of what worked well for other people. Anyone know where i can find somethng like this? Thanks ye kindly in advance : ) !
– i should probably add that while my venue hosts weddings occasionally, they are probably not the best place to get ideas as to how we want the room set up (which is why im looking for some good diagrams before I ask them).

Also, I think Martha Stewart has a planner on her website. Honestly,I just used good old graph paper. We had ours in an art gallery with 2 rooms. In the smaller room, we had a photobooth, bar and sweet/dessert/candy bar table. The main room was where we had dinner and dancing. We did long tables. My advice is to make what’s important central. We made the dance floor up front and center, which was not too far from the bar to make it easy for people to get a drink and get back to dancing.
If you’d like some pictures, just message me. They are personal photos of others so I don’t want to just put them out there. As long as you have the measurements of the tables, then you should be able to do it on graph paper easily. Hope that helps. Let me know if you need more info.

Can you look at pics of other weddings that have been held at the venue or ask them how other people have set it up?
It is hard to give you ideas when we don’t know the layout of your venue unless it is just a rectangle room. I would say keep the dance floor in the middle if possible.
I would also try googling it. I know google docs has a floor plan that you could review and I am sure lots of others will appear in your search options.
