Let’s say, hypothetically, you’re having your wedding at a fun seaside venue on the coast of an unspecified northeastern state. Let’s also say that the aforementioned venue has lobster buoys and various other aquatic items hanging from the rafters – you know, for culture. Now, we’re not all math experts here, but I’m sure you have some idea of what happens when you combine lobster buoys + tempting low-hanging objects + drunk guests + a celebratory mood. Hint: It may or may not seriously upset the management.
This is why scouting the property beforehand is always a good idea — even better if you try to see that property through the eyes of a drunk person. Better yet, just get one of your friends drunk and bring him or her with you as a test subject. Unless you are having a Mormon wedding (which I assume involves minimal alcohol intake), your guests are going to get tipsy. They’re going to look for something to swing on, or from. And if all the appealing dance partners are taken, and you managed to keep your venue free of “dancing” poles, their wandering eyes just may drift toward the ceiling. Toward disaster.
If there’s any doubt, or you have some especially wild cousins, you should probably seriously consider how attached you are to your deposit. Or just look for a place with higher rafters.
