    @allie6113:  How over on guests are you? Are the overages confirmed? (RSVP’d yes) How long is your reception?

    If you’re having a cocktail reception then i would not span it over dinnertime else it should be expected to have more of a meal and a seat. With a reception that starts after dinner you should be fine with just the cocktail tables. Perhaps you could even have sofas/loungers set up around the room to accomodate more seating in a relaxed style.

    I’m not a fan of the L shape myself, we looked at a venue that had that and I really didn’t like it for the reasons you’re stating, some guests would be off kind of “on their own” By The Way what would that room be used for if you did have a dinner if you didn’t need to use it for tables? Is there a way you could re-arrange where the head table would be so at least guests would see you and the groom?

    Cocktail reception will also be cheaper for you if with the new guestlist cost is a concern. I think Cocktail is fine btw, just make sure there is seating for older guests and its not over a meal time 🙂
