Payment in full will be due 60 days prior to your celebration. There is a nonrefundable $500.00 deposit which will be due upon signing the rental contract.
Will I have to clean up after my event?
You will be responsible for cleaning the property after the event. All trash, equipment, debris, containers and anything else brought to the property must be carried away with your cleanup crew.
Will I have to carry my own trash away after the event?
Heavy duty black trash bags will be provided for you. All trash must be bagged on the night of the event and placed into the commercial dumpster that it located on the property. If, for some reason, the dumpster is full, yes, you will have to take your trash with you. Any food or open trash bags left overnight may cause you to lose your security deposit because they attract insects and rodents.
Do I have to clean up the night of my event or can it wait?
Everything will have to be cleaned and taken from the venue at the end of your event, unless you have reserved one of the cabins for the night. In that case, you may store things there to be picked up the following day.
Can we have alcohol at our event?
Alcohol can be served but not sold at Wildernest. However, you will be responsible to purchase and serve it yourself. Also, you will be held responsible to make sure minors are not served and also to ensure minors are not consuming alcoholic beverages. Also, please make sure people aren't drinking and driving. We want your celebration to be amazing and memorable ... but in only good ways.
Will we be able to stay in the cabins the weekend of the wedding?
The cabins will NOT be rented out during your wedding weekend; however, if you or any of your wedding party and/or guests want to stay in them, they will need to purchase a separate reservation.
I have a few family members and friends who smoke. Do you allow smoking on your property?
There is no smoking in the venue or on the surrounding property. There are trees and property that cannot be replaced. There will be a designated smoking area in the parking area.
I love the glow of candles, are those allowed in the venue?
Open flames or candles may not be used inside or on the surrounding property.
After our wedding instead of bubbles or birdseed, we want to leave with are guests shining sparklers, is that allowed?
Sparklers will be allowed in the designated area for departure purposes. The exception will be during a burn ban; if there is a burn ban in place, sparklers will not be allowed.
I am thinking I would like to use confetti or flower petals as part of our decoration, is that okay at Wildernest?
I love confetti and if you want to use it indoors you sure can, however, it has to be cleaned up, taken with you and disposed of. However, you can only use biodegradable confetti, flower petals, etc. outdoors.
