(Closed) Wedding Venue- Flip!

  • poll: Is it inappropriate to flip the wedding venue with guests close by?

    Yes, this is tacky and could end up being a disaster.

    No, I think this is fine.

    If there is a cocktail hour room for them to wait/eat in, I don’t think it’s a problem at all.

    We’re having the ceremony and reception at the same venue (a restaurant…so pretty much one big room). Between ceremony and reception, staff will put away chairs and set up a seating area with beautiful leather couches. I’d estimate it would take 10 minutes tops.

    There’s heaps of space for guests to mingle while this happens, plus it’s right on the river so they can also go outside to the foreshore while we have photos done. Some people might not like it…but I don’t think it’s a huge part of the day. My priorities are enjoying the ceremony and feeding and watering my guests with amazing quality food and drinks

    Chelsea32:  I went to a wedding where they flipped the ceremony space into cocktail hour while all the guests stood around immediately after the ceremony.

    I’m a little unclear on the cocktail space – is it separate from the reception space, or just off to the side? If it is separate, not a big deal at all. If the guests will be in the room, maybe a little weird but I wouldn’t worry about it.

    A friend of mine did this – She didn’t have another room to send them to and I think her guests even helped her move things. I don’t think it’s that unusual.  She wrote a little bit about it in her blog http://jellyjars.wordpress.com/2014/06/26/mcwed-part-2/

    First, I think this is really completely fine, even if the guests are in the same room. But regardless, I’d rather be near flipping activity than have to drive to a new destination, all things considered.
