Here are the answers to our most frequently asked questions
Am I able to use my own vendors for my event?
Yes, you are allowed to use whomever you would like and trust to make your event special. We also have special service providers available.
Am I allowed to provide my own alcohol for my event?
Yes, you are allowed to provide your own alcoholic beverages for your special occasion. However, we DO require that you have a TABC Certified bartender serving ALL alcoholic drinks available at The Abbey. Our policy states that there is absolutely NO BYOB option. There will be an appointed officer on site that will monitor alcohol consumption and ensure the safety of all guests on the property.
Do we have the freedom to use real candles for our event?
NO open flamed candles are permitted, with the exception of a Unity Candle during the ceremony. The Abbey Estate has a variety of flame-less candles available for your use.
What are the options for our grand exit of the event?
A grand event requires a grand exit and that is why we proudly welcome many biodegradable options for your departure from your big day. We will allow sparklers if there is no Burn-Ban in place. Fireworks are not permitted.
What are the regulations on music?
What is an unforgettable event without some music and dancing, right? We gladly welcome amplified music on our property. However, we ask that you keep the music at a reasonable level (to be determined by the on-site officer) until 10:30pm outside and 11:00pm inside the barn or house.
Do you require wedding liability insurance?
Yes, we do require you to obtain and show proof of personal liability insurance.
Am I permitted to use real and/or faux flowers?
Both real and artificial flowers are permitted. The one exception to this rule is flower petals used for tossing outdoors - they must be real or biodegradable.
Are pets allowed at The Abbey Estate?
Yes, you are free to include vaccinated pets in your ceremony. Following the ceremony pets are to be crated or removed. ALL pets are the responsibility of the client and MUST be cleaned up after. Pet damage will affect your retainer.
