When it comes on to get your Winnipeg/ Steinbach reception ready for your guests there are lots to consider and one of them is the floor plan. it should be given the right amount of attention but not too much because then you get caught up in the little things and before you know it you’ve made a mountain out of a mole hill. (trust me if you do, you will drive everyone away from you)

 

A few things to consider in Manitoba are the young, the old, the unborn and especially in Winnipeg Wedding Scene the easily aggravated.

The young – if you’re having kids at your wedding if they are really young, you may want to have high chairs available (some venues in Winnipeg or steinbach area provide high chairs) or make room for strollers, if they are old enough to interact with others consider putting all the children together in an area of the room that will give enough space for them to run around and a little ways away from the head table or cake or food or dance floor area. I once seen at a wedding in Steinbach a 4 year old ran into the cake table, it was all over the floor after that. You also want to keep them away from the DJ area as kids love playing hide and seek and tag and around sound equipment is not place for kids.

 

The old – many times grand parents are placed in front of the dance floor so they can be front and center to see everything but once the dancing begins and the music gets turned up the older guests get quite frustrated because its too loud even for them, they just want to visit and catch up and they can’t do that, or in some case their tables have to be moved to make room for the actual dancing which is a popular thing in winnipeg. All of the above reasons can drive them home earlier thanĀ  you hoped. When planning for your floor plan be sure to put the older guests somewhere that they can still see but won’t be made uncomfortable maybe somewhere like the center of the room the second row of tables from the dance floor.

 

The unborn – If you have friends or family that are pregnant having them close the the rest rooms is always a great idea. If you or anyone you know has ever been pregnant you’ll know that they visit the restroom 2 times as much as anyone else. when it comes on to being close to the music or dance floor that’s not generally a problem if the mom can handle the music and dancing then she’s good to go.

 

The easily aggravated – Ok maybe not the best choice of words but what I mean is if you have members of the family or friends who don’t get along but are both invited then you will want to sit them as far part from each other as possible and I mean far. not like 1 table over where they can see the other persons lips moving and be wondering if they are talking about them (lol) but far apart so there are no issues. I’ve seen a hand full of weddings both in Winnipeg & Steinbach that we have the the DJ’s at and where family gets put together and don’t like each other and end up causing an uproar at weddings. Not a good idea

 

When it comes to the DJ/ Entertainment or Party its extremely important to have the DJ directly in front of or next to the dance floor. IT IS A BAD IDEA TO HAVE ANY TABLES BETWEEN THE DJ AND THE DANCE FLOOR. We’ve seen to many times where family is siting right next to the DJ and are screaming at him/ her to turn it down but then there are people on the dance floor yelling TURN IT UP!! any other floor plan will be problematic.

 

Below i’ve shown you pictures of good floor plans and also pictures of bad floor plans.

 

When all else fails you can always nix the idea of a seating plan and have everyone sit where ever they want. this will allow all your friends from Winnipeg to sit with other Winnipeg friends, all your steinbach peeps can hang with the others from that area as well it really depends on how important an aspect like this is to your wedding planning.
