WHAT ARE THE IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER FOR OUR EVENT?

We need to meet 30 days before your event to get your final number of guests, set the menu, determine the bar services to be provided, and for you to make final payment on the contract. You should plan to make your RSVP deadline at least a week before that date, so that when we meet you can calculate the number of guests you expect to attend. Please provide cell phone numbers of florist, cake vendor and DJ, as well as the specific times for their arrival.

WHEN CAN WE DECORATE?

If we do not have an event scheduled the day before your event, you are able to decorate the day before at no extra charge! We ask that decorating be completed in 3 hours. If we have a scheduled event the night before your event, then you will be allowed access to the hall at 8 a.m. on the date of your event.

CAN WE SEE THE FACILITY SET UP FOR A WEDDING TO GET IDEAS FOR DECORATING?

Yes! You can contact us to schedule a time to stop during the day of a scheduled event to see how the facility is set up.

WHAT FOOD ITEMS MAY WE BRING FOR OUR EVENT?

You may bring in cake, cookies, mints, nuts, pretzels and similar snack items. All items brought need to be prepared off site and brought on sealed trays and containers on the day of the event. As a general rule, we do not refrigerate items brought by Lessees, so please plan accordingly.

ARE THERE HOTELS NEARBY?

The Hilton Garden Inn is located west of Village Pointe, at approximately 178th and Dodge.  A Residence Inn is located north of Dodge at 180th Street. The Holiday Inn Express is located on the south side of West Center at approximately 178th Street. The Hampton Inn is located behind the Target Store on the north side of West Center at approximately 178th Street.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE DEPOSIT WE MADE AFTER OUR EVENT?

At the meeting 30 days before the event, your initial deposit to hold the facility converts to a damage deposit. This damage deposit will be refunded to you within 7 business days after the event, less fees for unpaid charges by you, and damages to the facility caused by your guests, if any.

DOES YOUR VENUE HAVE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR CHILDREN?

We have a limited number of high chairs and booster seats, and a baby changing station is located in the women’s restroom. We can also provide a coloring station for your little ones during the event!

CAN OUR GUESTS LEAVE VEHICLES IN THE PARKING LOT OVERNIGHT?

Absolutely! We do not want to encourage irresponsible behavior. We simply ask that all vehicles be removed by 1 p.m. the day after your event.

WE REQUIRE STRICT DIETARY RESTRICTIONS FOR OUR MENU. WILL YOU STILL BE ABLE TO CATER OUR WEDDING?

Yes! We take dietary restrictions very seriously and will be able to accommodate, just ask!
