Wedding reservations may be made up to one year in advance of the event, on a first-come, first served basis. Wedding ceremonies and receptions may not be scheduled from late May through early August, or on the two weekends prior to Memorial Day as our facilities are in use. Note: certain other dates and times may not be available due to either Blandy or Arboretum events. All weddings will begin at 4:00 p.m. For Reception-only events, the start times may be at 4:00 or 5:00p.m. No indoor wedding facilities are available, and rain dates are NOT an option. It is strongly recommended that you reserve a tent from an approved rental company in case of inclement weather. A tent offers protection, not only from rain, but from sun, heat, wind, etc.
The fee is based on the package selected, (see Wedding Packages below) plus a $200 cleaning/damage deposit. The deposit will be refunded one week after the event if no additional staff time is required to return the area to its pre-event status and all rental regulations are followed.
All wedding packages include a one hour wedding rehearsal, which should be scheduled the day or evening before the ceremony. It is recommended the rehearsal take place at the same hour of day as the wedding (4:00 p.m.). The time and date will be stated in the Wedding Rental Agreement. The user is responsible for clean up after the rehearsal.
Note: The tent and other equipment (chairs, tables, linens…) may be delivered 48 hours prior to the event and removed 48 hours after the event.
Note: Blandy's Event Coordinator will be on-site for receptions.
