I don't really want to be moved into a ballroom at all!
thanks for the info. we have only 12 guests coming, so we'd be in the same kind of situation. i think it would be worth the extra money though - as long as it doesn't rain! i totally agree about not wanting to be moved into a ballroom. we are, after all, planning BEACH weddings!
what menus did you receive? i just have the single menu for the semi-private receptions. could you e-mail me what you have (firstname.lastname@example.org)?
