- Day Of Challenges: Making enough room for the hora. Floor plans are critical in the wedding planning world, but even when you've got a floor plan that is laid out to scale, sometimes you just don't know exactly how everything will fit until you see it in place on the day of. With Danielle and Erik's wedding, I had spoken to them in advance about how much room may or may not be left for dancing once the dinner tables were in place. Everyone had decided that the size of the dance floor would be a game time decision. Though not always ideal, game time decisions at a wedding CAN be prepared for and I do that by thinking through what both options would entail. So going into Danielle and Erik's wedding, I knew that there was a chance we'd have to creatively move some tables around post-dinner to create enough room for dancing. When I touched base with Danielle and Erik during dinner and they indicated that they wanted additional room for dancing, I immediately found the catering captain and we discussed how to move the tables in the least obtrusive way to create the most dancing space. We identified two tables that needed to be moved and the catering captain had her team ready as soon as dinner finished to politely ask the guests at those tables to stand for a moment while they moved those tables to the side. We managed to create the least amount of disruption as we could and succeeded in making the dance floor large enough to host a solid hora.
