Wedding Q&A

Helpful Q&A

Planning a wedding is so much work. It takes months of careful planning to make sure everything goes off without a hitch. We understand you likely have a lot of questions about catering for your wedding, so we've put together this helpful list of questions. If your question isn't listed, please call us at 402-334-5446. Our helpful staff will do our best to answer your questions.

What do I need to do to secure a date for my reception?

Our event coordinators will get the necessary information to establish a contract. We will collect a check/cash deposit which is equal to the room rental to secure a date and generate the contract. We will then schedule an appointment about 2-3 months in advance of the date to coordinate all the details for your event. The final guest guarantee count is due eight business days prior to your reception. The final balance of the event is due to our office five business days of the reception date.

How long do I have the ballroom?

With most of our locations, your rental is good for the whole afternoon or evening. Most receptions last 5-6 hours and our ballroom closes at 12:30 AM. Just simply let us know when your guests will be arriving.

Do you provide any decorations or centerpieces?

Yes, we provide standard white, ivory, or black linen tablecloths and napkins, along with your choice of about 15 accent colors. We also provide a 14-inch round mirror and 3 non-scented votive candles per table.

You are welcome to come in before your reception and decorate, depending on what other events we have going on beforehand. We do ask that you refrain from using confetti, glitter, crepe paper, bubbles/birdseed/sand, or any open flame candles in our ballrooms.

What is the charge for cake cutting?

We actually do not charge to cut your cake. Our staff will be more than happy to cut your cake after your bridal photos have been taken. We will provide plates, forks, cake knife set, glass bowls for mixed nuts and trays for mints.


Can you recommend local vendors for wedding cakes, music, flowers, photography, chair covers, and linens?

Absolutely! Check out the following list of contacts we've established a great relationship with over the years. You're also more than welcome to work with your own contacts.
