Wow that’s absolutely gorgeous! Is there any way to know really far in advance what the exhibits will be? Like, could you get that information before booking, or do they not know that far in advance?

I think it is definetely dicey to have it at the gallery since you could end up with completely scary paintings behind you in all of your pictures.  It’s a gorgeous building but I know that I couldn’t deal with not knowing what the art would be like behind me.

faint, it’s stunning!! can you set up a tent with a dance floor outside or something like that?  do they have a large veranda?  also, there should be a way to know in advance what shows are scheduled.

It’s gorgeous! It looks like a castle!

I agree with the other girls – can you see how far in advance you can find out the artist? How do they book them? You don’t want scary sculptures or the inability to have control over the vibe your guests have.

And I LOVE crebre’s patio idea.

I think floral paintings could add to the ambiance… and dancing on the veranda… you could have mint juleps being served by waiters as well as hor dvoures and have cocktail tables out there… sounds sooo appropriately southern 😀 and just have little mini stations etc… so not a formal sit down reception, more of an art gallery viewing type reception with passed hor dvoures.. omg i have sooo many ideas!!

It’s very pretty KM!!  I would look at your other venues and you will get a better idea of all the pros and cons and you will be able to make your decision!

WOW! The gallery is absolutely gorgeous!!!! It would be really hard to plan adequately though because they could be putting shows up or down, and may not know far enough in advance. Plus, the lack of a dance floor could really suck! You could just take pictures at the gallery but have your reception somewhere else?

You could also have your reception outside of it, so its like a backdrop. Then you wouldnt have to worry about what exhibit is going on! You could rent tents and a dance floor and do everything right in front of it.

Beautiful!  I totally agree with Crebre’s idea of a cocktail type reception incorporating the art into your wedding.
