When meeting with our event planner you’ll go over your room layout at your consultation.  Your room layout is designed to have the best open space on the main floor so that your guests have room to socialize after dinner.  Guests normally only stay at their tables on the upper level or main floor during dinner.  We suggest you have seating on the upper level for dinner depending on your head count.  Your guests will not feel offended in any way if seated on the upper level.  In fact the younger age group ranging from their early 20’s into their 40’s like to be on the upper level.  Sometimes they even stay up their to socialize after dinner has been served.  If you wish to have tables placed on the upper level for overflow seating that’s outside of your head count then you’ll rent the linen for those tables and they’ll not be placed with place settings.
