"So, what about lodging?"
We do not currently offer lodging onsite, but we have a ton of cute air b&b's only minutes from the venue. Another option would be hotels located about 20 minutes North (or South) of us!
"What's the venue's capacity?"
The reception hall can hold 320 guests.
"Is smoking allowed?"
Wildflower Ridge is a non-smoking/vaping facility. We kindly ask for you and your guests to smoke out near the parking lot.
"What's your food + drink policy?"
We allow any and all of your favorite foods, but we do ask for you to hire a full-service, licensed and insured catering company to serve you and your guests. Our event staff does not prepare/serve food. Non-alcoholic drinks can be brought in, but we do require you to use our bar services for alcohol related events. Email us for more info!
"Do you have a list of preferred vendors?"
Yes! From wedding planners to florists and caterers, we have worked with some of the best companies in the industry & would love to share their information with you!
"Do you require Day-of event insurace?"
Yes, Special Event Liability Insurance is required and can be purchased through Nuptial - a company specializing in wedding day protection. Proof of this Special Event Liability Insurance is required 45 days before your wedding.
"What are the rules at the end of the night/rental?"
We ask that whatever you bring into the venue/suites, you take with you at the end of the night. This includes all trash collected and taken to the dumpster located on site, any and all decor from your event, gifts, rentals, personal items, etc. All vehicles are due to be off the property also.
Wildflower Ridge will take care of tables, chairs, linens, and sanitation of the venue after each event.
"Is the rehearsal included?"
Yes, a 1-hour walk through is included in your rental, but this doesn't include dinner. We have a list of local spaces to host your rehearsal dinner if you're looking for recommendations! We also want to remind you that since we book weddings Friday,Saturday, and Sundays - the evening before your big day may not always be available. We'll schedule a rehearsal time at your 45-day-out consultation meeting.
"Are we allowed to set up the night before?"
We do not normally allow you to set up the night before, however if you have very elaborate plans, we recommend you booking the whole weekend package to allow you time to set up and take down. Weekend rentals are offered from 12pm Fridays - 12pm Sundays. This way your rehearsal evening is guaranteed the night before the wedding, too!
"Are the Bridal/Grooms suites included?"
Yes, access to the suites begin 1-hour prior to the venue rental times. If more time is needed, you can add up to 2 hours in the mornings for $130/hour.
"Are live flames allowed?"
Yes, as long as they're enclosed in a hurricane vase or lantern!
"Is glassware allowed?"
We will allow you the use of water goblets/real china during dinner (these make for beautiful tablescapes!) but we ask they be collected at the end of dinner. During the reception we ask you to use beer cans or the plastic wine cups.
"What's included in your day-of services?"
Someone will be there to greet you in the morning and open the suites for you and our Event Manager will be on-site orchestrating your vendors and guiding you through the ceremony. If a room flip is required, our event staff will generally take about 20-30 minutes to reset the hall into a reception setting. After dinner, our event staff will take care of all things venue related (dimming the lights, making sure the thermostats are set correctly, and will help keep the trash under control.)
"When do you offer tours?"
We have tour dates open DAILY (depending on availability)
"How much is due to hold and book my wedding date?"
We require 25% of your venue rental at the time of booking to officially hold your date (10% of which is non-refundable). The remainder is due 45 days prior to your event.
