    Offended? No. I wouldn’t really care at all unless the weather sucked. I would’nt want to see bugs flying around the food or have it be cold.

    Nope. Wouldn’t be offended at all.  Might think it is a bit strange but if the rest of the room is full of other stuff, it wouldn’t take long for me to get why the buffet is outside.

    I am more intrigued by the poker tables anyway!

    Ha! No. That isn’t offensive at all. It will be just fine with all you have going on!

    It might be nice to go outside and get some fresh air anyway!

    Wouldn’t offend me, although I’d be worried about a large influx of people trying to get in and out of that door all at once, especially with plates of food in their hands. Definitely need to figure out some sort of logistical way to handle that. Other than that, I don’t see a problem with it

    I wouldn’t care either way as long as it wasn’t raining and there were no bugs on the food.

    So I wouldn’t find it offensive in the least…

    BUT I do agree with what Birdee106:  said (word for word)

    I wouldn’t really care at all unless the weather sucked. I would’nt want to see  bugs flying around the food or have it be cold

    Weather is going to be your greatest UNKNOWN element in this situation.

    Any chance you could find a company to come in and “screen” the porch with a light fabric or some sort of panels (netting, plastic sheeting… like a shower curtain)

    As a guest, would I be bothered? No.  However, I’d be concerned about the possibility of bad weather, since it’s covered on the top, but that wouldn’t prevent rain and gutter overflow from pouring onto the patio.  Also, I don’t know how many people you’re inviting, but instead of having multiple lines for mutiple buffet stations, you’d have one large line trying to get in and out of the double doors. 

    I’m not sure how to scale that drawing is, but I’d move the cake display over to the right and put the candy buffet next to it.  That frees up most of that wall.  Then push the poker tables closer to the DJ.  I feel like 2 poker tables would not take up that much room, even with people standing around.  Put the buffet stations on the side by the bar, and you’re good to go!

    Not offended, just worried about the weather and traffic flow. Is the area covered in the event of rain and can it have a mosquito net around it to keep pests at bay? What about keeping the food warm (I see you are getting married in October). Also consider flow of traffice, will it be easy to go both in and out and move around on the patio?

    It wouldn’t bother me either, but I do have to say you should rethink the position of your cake table. Aside from the fact it’s bordering the dance floor, it’s also in the line of traffic to the doors…another chance to get bumped .Dancing people can be a little crazy sometimes, and I’d hate to see it end up on the floor.
