The only thing that I would worry about is potential added cost dependent on how much stuff you bring and how labor intensive the set-up is for them. If youâ€™re still working with a wedding coordinator, then I would bounce these ideas off of him/her, thatâ€™s what they are there for.
Final note... Nice venue, and based on my previous visit to PDC in 2011, I can vouch for the food.
Thank you! I have heard only good things about the food, which is really important to Amy. It's important to me that the guests like the food, but I'm such a picky eater, I'm not qualified to judge good food. I'm happy to hear good things!
I'm trying not to bring down too much, but I do have a few table decorations and hope to do chair sashes. If the restaurant does not charge us a set up fee, we will definitely add one to their tip!
I searched online a bit more and think we may consider these lights, if the restaurant doesn't have any ideas for us (or we don't like the cost):
I e-mailed the wedding coordinator, too, although we only hired her for the ceremony. We may end up asking her to help with the reception, too, if I get the feeling the restaurant will be overwhelmed. So far, though, I don't think there's a need.
I have days where I know everything is going to be fine, having read stories here from so many brides who made many decisions just a day or two before their wedding, but I also have days where I feel panicked and lost, fearing the whole thing will be a mess!
