Who is responsible for setting up and cleaning up?
We have a general setup of tables and chairs but the placements of gift table, sign in and others are set to your preference. Our wedding coordinator, or you, your family or bridal party, should assist in how you would like them set up and to decorate according to your ideas/plans. We will assist in setting up according to your ideas, and we will assist in breakdown and cleaning up at the end of the night.
If we bring our own decorations, are we responsible for setting up and tearing down?
The nice thing about our venue, is that we do it all for you! Your silverware should be rolled prior to dropping off everything, but you will only need to drop it off, discuss your vision with our Coordinator Kassie, and then after the wedding be prepared to load it in the appropriate vehicles.
Do you accept decorations if we don't want to keep them after the wedding?
Absolutely! It just depends on the decorations and what we have on hand already. When you do a tour, make sure to discuss your vision so we can let you know what we already have to help save you money and the hassle of bringing extra items.
