We just found out that our venue will not let us enter the premises until 1 hr before the wedding ceremony. Does anyone know approximately how long it takes to dress the tables and chairs with linens and decorations? We will have 10 guest tables with 8 chairs each. Table cloth, organza cover, simple decorations, chair covers with sashes. 8 candles for each table will need to be lit.
We cannot afford to pay a caterer $100/hr x 4 staff to set these up for us!
Wedding is at st. pete beach on Friday 3/30 at 6:30 pm.
We are so stressed about this that I'm about to cry.
