    I love the idea of the reception in the barn but I’d be extra careful to make sure you have plenty of seating in the barn.  A lot of guests won’t dance and people don’t like to stand for long periods of time (at least I don’t).  I think you could pull it off but I would just make sure there are plenty of chairs in both the tent and the barn.

    Are you inviting 120 or expecting that many? Keep in mind that about 2/3 of invited guests typically show up (there’s room for error there but I think people almost always expect more than the number that show up). I think non-dancers might not stay as long since the dance floor is removed from the seating, and weather could be a factor. But it could be great, I think it depends on how badly you want your wedding at that venue (do the pros outweigh the cons?).

    What was the venue you chose to go with?  We are looking for something similar (but for a later date, no worries!) 🙂

    We are having dinner in a tent and the dancing/dessert in a one room yacht club that adjoins. We will have some seating inside, but the dinner and everything will be outside in the tent.
