    Truthfully? I’d keep looking. An evening wedding without dancing would be odd in my circle and a daytime wedding doesn’t generally spark people to dance. I’d keep looking or choose a different date.

    Skivies91 :  I would also keep looking. Are you tied to a date?

    Skivies91 :  Ah, ok, when you say venue you mean where you are having the ceremony?? You are tied to the date? It’s not an option to have the bigger room in the evening on a different date? Where do you live? Maybe we can all help you find something else!!

    I voted for morning with the dance floor.

    Perhaps I’m strange, but I dance at parties no matter what time of day it is. You might miss some dancers who are lacking some liquid courage (if there is a bar that is), but if you get a kick-butt DJ and the right crowd you can still have an awesome time! 

    Plus the small room looks really small, and I don’t think people would dance if they feel crammed. 

    However, that’s just my opinion and you know your guests better than myself and other random internet strangers.

    If you’re considering a daytime wedding simply for a venue with a better dance floor because dancing is important to you, I think you’ll be disappointed. I’ve never attended an afternoon wedding that was exciting…but I don’t know your friends so they may be way more exciting than mine!

    Skivies91 :  Any chance there’s a Friday night? I think people would want to leave early on Sunday. 

     

    Are you allowed to dance on the patio? If so, that could serve as a dance floor potentially if you set it up right?

    Personally, I would probably be more exciting on a Sunday evening, but I would just not go to work Monday if I didn’t feel like. Most people may not want to stay super late on a work/school night? Also, I have three tiny children so I really don’t function well until I’ve had like five Diet Cokes and it would be hard to get them in by 11:30.

    I would push the tables closer together in the smaller room and create a dance floor.

    As zl27 said, do you have the option to push the tables together in the smaller ballroom and use some of the floor space as a dance floor?
    Those tables look really far apart and you only have 50 people so I don’t think they’re really going to fill up the space or be squished.

    Why can’t you dance on patio? One venue I looked at, had that has an option. You cant have a ballroom as a venue without dancing

    I chose the second ballroom. I had a daytime wedding near that time and we had a dj that did karaoke. Libations were provided as well and everyone had a great time!

    I would pick the evening venue and find room for a dancefloor. Failing that, I would keep looking for another venue or pick another date where I could have the room I wanted at the time I wanted at the venue I wanted.
