          We'd love to have our wedding at the step house as it looks and feels amazing! But my one concern is we have around 180 guests and I'm afraid that we might be a bit crammed!?has anybody attended a wedding in the step house with roughly that number of guests? I would really appreciate if anybody could answer this for me, As we would love to get married here! Thanks

          The room actually can hold up to 200 so 180 shouldn't be a problem
