I never really thought that drawing up a floor plan would be a major dilemma. Of course, table assignments might be a headache after RSVPs come in, but I always thought that the tables just sort of…placed themselves. Well, as far as our venue goes, I thought incorrectly.
I didn’t much consider the floor plan until we discussed it with the catering manager at our tasting. OK, that’s not exactly true. We talked about it during our initial walk through—“the dance floor will go here!”—but we never sat down and counted seats and tables or anything like that.
Now we are starting to actually think logistically. Our venue is slightly unusual in that the reception area is two stories—a main level and a balcony/loft on the second floor. I actually love the second floor—it has sweeping views of the creek and allows for a bird’s eye view of the main level. This was a huge selling point to me.
