How firm is your guest list?  Could it grow? shrink?

Good question!!!  I agree, if you’re in love with this venue … you may want to rethink your guest list.  Putting ppl outside will make that “left out” feeling (though its really to eat, the dancing they’ll come inside). 

But, it will give that left out feeling.  Picture yourself sitting outside at a table when you see the whole wedding going on inside.  Just a thought.  🙂

I guess it boils down to how much you think you’ll worry about it.  I wouldn’t want to sit guests ‘outside’ because I’ve been that guest and I don’t like it.  But, it’s not the end of the world.  If you are at 170 and don’t think you’ll grow your list, then chances are you’ll come in at around 150.  Maybe you can squeeze people in the main room and not have an odd table out.

But, if it will stress you out, and you want more flexibility with your guest list, keep venue hunting, IMO

I personally wouldn’t care if I was seated outside but it does give a slightly odd/left out vibe.  Perhaps you could just seat kids out there?  Or re-think guest list (don’t allow plus partners)
