The stair/elevator thing would be annoying to me. And maybe if you have lots of older guests.

My venue had 2 stalls in each women’s/men’s and we had 73 guests. It was fine.

It’s fine, they might wait in line a little bit, but it’s fine, if you like the place, get it

Our venue has 3 stalls in each restroom but my Future Brother-In-Law & FSIL’s wedding last year only had 2 bathrooms and I didnt think it was an issue. Lets just say I may have been drinking heavily that night and visited the restroom quite a few times and never had to wait in line.

EDIT: Sorry, forgot to mention that their wedding was similar in size to yours. I think they had 80 or so.

Personally I think both bathroom situations are a non-issue!

Go with the venue you love!

I don’t think that either or an issue.  For the first venue: I doubt I’d go to the bathroom more than once so the up/down wouldn’t bother me.  It’s not like I’d have to do it 10 times!  The second venue, that should be enough bathrooms as most guests will go scattered throughout the reception so it should be fine.  Go with the venue you love!

@elliestan: There were only 2 bathrooms (1 men 1 women) in our venue and we had 120 guests plus staff – didnt seem to be an issue

There were 4 stalls total in the womens bathroom but I have no idea how many in the mens! There wasnt a line for the bathroom at all 🙂

I think my venue only had 2 stalls in each mens and womens, and we had about 150 total guests, and it wasn’t a problem.  I wouldn’t worry about it.  But the up and down stairs thing would drive me crazy as a guest.  Plus if some are going to be drinking you would hate for someone to fall down the stairs!

I think the two bathrooms for 75-85 people is just fine. Think about restaurants (or bars) that hold that many people and only have one or two bathrooms… People might wait for a person or two, but that’s it. Good luck deciding! (Although.. I’m quite partial to art gallery venues) Smile

With the first venue, I think it would be kind of a pain to walk two flights of steps and possibly through a restaurant (unless the bathrooms are close to the stairs..but if they are then it sounds like they’d be far from the elevator) to get to the bathroom. And with the second one, I don’t think the number will be a problem at all – we had 120 guests, 2 stalls in each bathroom, and there was never a line. I was in there for several minutes (going to the bathroom took a little longer than usual with my dress, and I also did a makeup check) and only one other person even came in the entire time.

VENUE PORN #2!!! I am in love!!!!  Oh the things you could do…..  

And going up and down stairs would get old if people are going to be drinking.  I think that would be less of an issue if its a dry wedding but everyone is still going to have to go at least once.  I guess I would also consider how user friendlly the stairs are- are they nice and open or kinda cramped and awkward and not fun for women in heals?

but oohhhh  # 2……..
