I totally understand girl! We’re having ours at an Inn about 3 and 1/2 hours away- and every time we plan to go up to VT to vacation I just want to go to the Inn and walk around taking notes on where I want to put things. I too asked how early we are allowed there to decorate before the wedding lol!
I think it’s a reasonable request to be able to go in and see the place at least a couple of times before the wedding! For one thing, if they are doing any more rennovations or updates to the room you will want to know and be aware of how it looks. I think if you set up an appointment to go and see the place, when you meet with the owner let her/him know that you will be taking pictures of everything so you can decide on what you want to use as far as decorations, and then let them know you will want to follow up with another appointment to possibly test out the decorations. Make sure you ask about what you can and can’t use or do as far as decorations as well- and ask for recommendations from the owner- for example if you can’t use hooks or nails, what else would they recommend using that will work for your purpose and theirs, you know?
I love the idea of the string lights! I agree- harsh bright lights take away from the feel of the wedding- and it looks like the place you’ve chosen would look gorgeous under dimmer lighting! Well, everything looks great under dim lighting lol! I wonder if they would allow you to use a cloth or fabric to cover areas of the ceiling or duct work to give the room a more finished feel? If not you can always use string lights and wrap them around the duct work- this way it looks pretty even if it is exposed.
