Set-up Help

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.Cry

Re: Set-up Help

  • What venue is this?
  • Can you hire a day of coordinator? Cherishedmoments does it for about a 50 an hour, I dont reccomend them for anything else but I think one hour is too close to the ceremony for you or a loved one to be setting up

  • You have an hour b4, during the wedding, and extra time during cocktail hour.  You should be fine.

    But she cant do it by herself then-all her relatives will be getting prepped, dressed, having photos done, and doing the ceremony. It can take at least an hour to get everything done, at least. i would just pay someone to ease your mind!
