  • Thank you for the advice to estimate the number of guests before visiting potential locations when selecting an event for your wedding. I’ll make sure to share this with my sister so she may keep it in mind as she chooses an event pavilion for her wedding, which she is now planning and looking for. I’ll also look into any potential event pavilions she might be interested in. I appreciate you sharing!
