When is my deposit due and how much is required?
We require a $500 deposit to secure your date. This amount is non-refundable and will be credited towards your final billing statement.
Are there any centerpieces available?
We do have a standard centerpiece option available for $100 (for all tables) that includes a tile mirror and votive candles. Other centerpiece options are also available.
When can I come in to set up and decorate?
The room will be available for decorating purposes at 11:00 a.m. the day of your event. If there is not an event scheduled the day before your event, you may have the option to come in the night before your event to set up.
When do I have to provide my final head count and menu choices?
We require you to confirm your final guest attendance number one week prior to your event, and your menu choices one month prior to your event date.
When is my final bill due?
The remaining balance for your event will be due 72 hours prior to the event. A credit card must be on file for any outstanding balances after your event takes place. Payments may be made in the form of cash, personal check, or credit card.
Can I bring any of my own food, drinks, or alcohol, and can I take home any extra food that is left over?
Outside food and beverages are not allowed in our banquet facility other than wedding cake or dessert. Due to health regulations, left over food is not allowed to be taken out of the facility.
What time do we need to be out of the hall?
All events must end no later than 1:00 a.m. and all guests must exit the banquet hall at this time. Personal items such as centerpieces and decorations must be removed by 1:00 a.m. Anything left in the room beyond this time may be discarded by the banquet staff.
What are the options and prices for having an onsite ceremony?
Onsite Ceremonies are available upon request. Reception style seating with an aisle is $250. With this option, the hall would be set up as it would be for your reception but space for an aisle would be added. This is becoming a new wedding trend, and is a very convenient option for your guests. You will receive your choice of one of three of our complimentary Trellis’. Trellis’ are lit and decorated, but can be modified with your wedding colors, if available.
The DJ company we work with can provide music for your ceremony.
They will begin “seating music” a half-hour before the ceremony begins, and will work with you to customize the music you would like played throughout your ceremony. Midwest Sound charges a $195 fee for onsite ceremonies.
When you choose to do an onsite ceremony in any of the banquet locations, we ask that you and your wedding party be available the evening before your wedding to do a complimentary rehearsal. If you choose to host a rehearsal dinner at the same time, you will receive 10% off of our food for that evening, and the room fee will be waived.
