My fiance and I are in the process of narrowing down reception venues. We love the idea of having a tented reception at a private beach house however our guest list is probably a bit too big for this. As of right now we've got about 280 people on the list... this of course, includes every possible person, child, date, etc. that could attend. With the wedding being out of town for everyone this number will definitely drop but I'm not sure if we could get it down to under 150. So, my question is does any one know of any houses that are equipped to handle about 200 people? We've called around and most places say 100 or 150 max due to fire code and/or septic issues which I definitely understand. I did, however, contact someone through VRBO who said as long as the event fee was paid it didn't matter how many people attended. Anyways... any insight on this would be great!
