So, my fiance and I are planning our wedding on a budget and so far the nicest venue for the price seems to be Cafe Luna (downtown Raleigh). It looks beautiful but my only concern is overcrowding. I expect approx. 125 guest. The event coordinator says the venue can accomidate that easily with room for a band, bar, and dance floor. I just don't quite see how that will work. Has anyone held their reception here or been to one here? Did it feel packed?
I also have to find a different location for my ceremony because Cafe Luna can only hold 100. We are thinking about the Tucker House(1 mile from Cafe Luna). They are opening a new side lawn next spring...perfect timing for my fall wedding. This will allow for more guests. Has anyone used this venue? How did it turn out?
One last thing! I am thinking about renting the Raleigh Trolley to transport my guests from the ceremony to the reception. What do you think about this idea? Anyone done this? And, would I also need to provide transportation to and from the wedding if I provide the trolley for the move from ceremony to reception?
Thank you ladies. All opinions will be much appreciated! I am new to this so if I am way off, don't be afraid to let me know!
