Venue Scare

Hi ladies,


    I am in a bit of a panic about my potential venue.  I am really wanting to have the ceremony and reception in the same place and have pretty much been decided on my venue even though we haven't put a deposit down yet.  I absolutely love everything about it and can't wait to get married there.  


The problem I am having is that while I have seen the room the ceremony will take place in....I had not seen it with chairs.  I saw a picture for the first time the other day with chairs and am a little concerned since I am having about 80-100 people.  It appeas the picture below doesn't have that many chairs set up and it's looking really crowded.  I would set the chairs up more evenly but I am still afraid that I won't be able to fit everyone even though the venue says they can.  PLUS, there is a piano in that same room that can't be moved.  This is a picture before they had the piano in there so you can't see it but how in the hell?


My chairs will be gold chavari chairs and I will have the rows set up more evenly despite the fact that the isle may no longer be centered.  I would rather walk up and over than have 5 rows to one side and 2 to the other.  I just think it will look better.  Help....what do you guys think? I'm nervous about it looking cluttered and packed in.

I have included a few more photo's or the links on the bigger one's I can't figure out how to make smaller....sorry which don't really do the venue justice but still wanted to share.

Hi Jan,


  I'm not worried about the reception room where they will more than likely be seated 8 or 10 to a table.  


My concern lies with the ceremony room---the very first link.  It just doesn't look like there are more than 50-60 chairs in that room.

Will the quest be seated at the tables or this room will be without tables. From the photo it does look a bit small. Did the person at the venue said that their is enough room? Maybe if you went back to the venue and saw it you could put your mind to rest, sometimes photo can be misleading.

I'm sorry I should have clarified that the ceremony room and reception room are two different rooms.  I just wanted to include a few photos so you all could see other parts of my venue.  


Jim and I are going for a tasting next week so I can speak to them about my concerns then I guess.  I agree that pictures can sometimes be deceiving.  


I'm just panicking a little since I have so many people.  Yes, the venue said that the room would hold 100 guests easily!


Thanks for your help Jan :)

What I'm guessing is chairs can just keep going further back? It looks as if there's about 80 chairs in there in that first picture. Another 20 could fit!

I just tried to count--it looks like there is 75ish chairs already. Maybe they have more chairs, they just didn't have an event that needed all of them set up? I bet, like Elise mentioned, they could just add more.


Maybe give them a call and see what their room capacity is?

Hey beautiful! The venue is gorgeous! Both the ceremony space and the reception area are beyond beautiful. I did a count also and yes it looks like there are about 80 chairs. Because of how it is shaped, it looks like the on the left side where the chairs are, there may be more seating going that way. I know you want your day to be perfect and it will be!

Thanks ladies! Yeah I think more chairs will fit if we go further back.  There is more seating up and around the corner but those people won't be able to see me walking up the isle; nevertheless I will still have to seat guests there. 


Thanks for talking me through my first panic attack :)  I will let you all know what I find out or if I get bad news.

I got my fingers and toes crossed for you! And it will all work out! If I was sitting in one of the chairs around the corner, Tressy would be on the floor peeping around the corner to watch you walk in! Lol.
