Hi Ladies! I'm recently engaged and trying to finalize the church and reception venue for our December 2012 wedding. My fiance and I are both MSU alum and interested in having our ceremony at the alumni chapel. The only problem I have is that the chapel seats around 190, including the alter, and we're going to have about 250 guests. We have reserved the MSU Union ballroom for the reception. We have our priest lined up and will be having a full Catholic mass. Anyone out there having a wedding at the chapel with similar numbers or have you attended a large wedding ceremony there?? I also like the Lansing Cathedral and we wouldn't have to worry about space there.
I also know that sometimes, guests will only come to the reception, however, the 250 is mainly family which I know will all be attending the ceremony.
Any help would be great!
