North Carolina-Outer Banks

Plan B?

We are planning on getting married on the beach right outside of our event home and then moving to the event home for the reception.  I haven't really thought about a Plan B in case the weather is bad (our date is 6/3), does anyone else have a back up plan?  I guess we could probably move all of the furniture from the top floor of the home (the house is absolutely gorgeous!) but just wanted to see what others are doing/have you thought of anything??

    We're getting married at the Elizabethan Gardens and they have a reception hall that can be used in the case of weather.  I suppose depending on your guest list size, you could move it all indoors.  Does the house have a covered deck?

    My Plan B is pretty much, see Plan A.  :)  We are having a church wedding (so no rain contingency necessary), but we are having our reception outside at an event home that doesn't allow tents.  Plan B is therefore the top floor of the house.  Shouldn't be a problem because we're only having 40-50 (including about 6 kids) - the house should more than accommodate that #.  And, the views would be fantastic and the house itself is really nice and could easily be dressed up with the same decor.

    Our ceremony was on the beach and reception was on the top floor of our event home.  Plan B for the ceremony would have been where the reception was since it offered great views.   I don't know how big your rental house is but ours was 8 bedrooms and the great room had a lot of space.  We had 45 guests and I thought it may be a little crowded but we'd deal.  Turns out it was plenty of room!  We just moved some furniture around.  Used the dining room table as a buffet and added a 6 foot collapsable table as extra.  I think you'd be fine using that as a plan B :)
