o What is your policy on alcohol?
You are welcome to bring your own. However, we’ll need to hire security personnel for you at a cost of $250. If your plans include providing mixed drinks for your guests (something beyond simply beer and wine), it will need to be served by one of our TABC bartenders for a fee.
o How do I reserve The Oaks for my event?
To secure a date, a signed event agreement and a 50% deposit is required. We will work with you on a payment plan, with final balance due no later than 90 days prior to your event.
o Am I responsible for any of the cleaning?
You are responsible for removing all items brought in by you, your vendors, or your guests. All of the tables should be cleared, leaving only the linens and centerpieces that we have provided. Serving areas should be free of food and beverages and wiped clean. All trash bags should be gathered and placed at the exit door. Our staff will take it from there.
o I really don’t want to worry about cleaning on my wedding day. What other options do I have?
We are happy to take this off your hands! You simply need to remove all items you, your vendors, or guests brought in. For a fee of $250, we will do the rest!
o How many hours does the rental fee reserve the space? Are there any charges for overtime? When do they begin?
The Oaks package includes use of the facility for 8 hours. This includes time to set up and clean up. A standard guideline is 3 hours for set up and photographs, 4 hours for your ceremony and reception, and 1 hour for cleanup. However, you can use the time as you see fit. Overtime is $150.00 per hour. All events are to end at midnight, including time for clean up.
o What overnight accommodations do you provide? Are there any discounts for booking additional rooms for guests?
The Oaks package includes a one-night stay in either our Magnolia Suite or Yellow Rose of Texas Suite on the night of your wedding. Keep in mind that check-out is by 11:00 am. All other guest rooms will be offered at a 10% discount to your or your invited guests.
o When is my rehearsal?
Any time Sunday through Thursday, by appointment only.
