The gazebo and aqueduct are listed as options on their website, but to be sure about those spaces accommodating larger numbers, I went back to the first e-mail I ever received from Alisha. The quoted excerpt follows.
"130 persons is Hummingbird Hall's capacity; but there are a number of options:
- Ceremony at the gazebo/beach/aqueduct and reception on Hummingbird Hall's Lagoon Deck if you are sure that your total numbers (including bride, groom, bridal party, children etc) will not exceed 130.
- Ceremony at the beach/gazebo, and reception under a tented marquee at the aqueduct; we are more flexible about numbers at these locations, though there is a premium for these sites."
So our backup plan, I would say is that we will be paying the premium. However, my upfront plan is to get the guest list down. This is why we haven't sent out the save-the-dates yet even though I've been planning this wedding since the end of last year.
Right now my FI has 26 kids on his list that are not related to us or in the wedding. I'm going to try bargain those kids off-the list.
