@krebhamp:  Hmm can you show us an idea of what this venue look like? I’m wondering if you could use larger decor ideas to fill the space.

@krebhamp:  Some venues have moveable wall dividers that can divide the venue into smaller spaces. Did you ask about that?

Is there any way you can create an artificial divider to make the space feel smaller if the venue doesn’t have a wall divider? Maybe with draped fabric and poles (many rental companies have some sort of pipe and drape structures; may be lower than the ceiling, but would at least keep the guests from feeling like they were in a half empty room) or fabric hung from the ceiling?

I agree with these ladies there are definately ways to make a venue feel smaller. If you both love the place, do it!

Are you having anything else that will take up space?

The hall we are renting seats 300, which seems like alot of space for our 70ish guest list. However, we are having a cigar bar, dj, candy/dessert buffet, and poker tables. Also a photo booth. Add on the gift & cake tables and the room is filled!
