Q: How Much Time Do I Get For the Ceremony and Reception?

A: We want you and your guests to relax and have a good time. We allow 2.5 hours for the ceremony, so that you are able to get ready and your guests can take their time coming in or taking pictures with you afterward. We also provide 5 hours for the reception, with additional hours available that can be purchased for a very small fee.

Q: What Happens if it Rains?

A: Remember, WatersEdge was designed by a wedding planner – someone that knows that weather can be unpredictable. Our indoor space is beautiful enough for a ceremony in the colder winter months, and we can talk to you about a rain plan that will feel so natural, your guests won’t even know that you changed your plans.

Q: What Dining Options Are Available?

A: We encourage you to look at our menus and see all of the different meals we have to offer. If there are any unique dietary needs, please let us know. We also have appetizers that your guests will love.

Q: Do You Offer Drinks or Should I Bring My Own?

A: We are licensed to provide alcohol, which means that we can provide you and your family with all the drinks they need. Along with our beer and wine service, we also offer unlimited 4.5 hours of liquor for only $7.00 per person.

Note: Unfortunately, due to the rules of liquor licensing, we cannot allow you to bring in outside liquor.

Q: How Much Are the Cake, Centerpieces, DJ, etc.?

A: We provide many services absolutely free. We provide you with a cake, a centerpiece, music, tables, chairs – and if you need something special, we have options available for a very affordable price. Please feel free and call us for any ideas you have, and we’ll let you know how we can make it a reality.

Q: What Custom Wedding Options Are There?

Q: How Can I Tell What The Venue Will Look Like?

A: It’s one thing to have ideas. It’s another to see them in action. If you’d like, we can provide you with a room diagram that will allow you to envision how the wedding will look when everything is set up.

Q: How Does Payment Work?

A: First, we’ll make sure you have a detailed listings of all the costs, so that you can see everything that you get for the price of the venue and its services. Some items may be taxed, which will be noted on the estimate. There is also a 20% service fee.

Changes can be made as we get closer to the date if needed, but the closer we get to the date, the more difficult it may be to make some changes, which is why your wedding coordinator will work with you to make sure we have each and every detail.

Once everything is confirmed, we’ll also take a $1,000 non-refundable deposit that will be credited to the costs of the venue. We’ll then break up the costs into easier to manage chunks, paid one month at a time until your wedding date. The final payment will be expected 2 weeks prior to the event.
