Frequently asked Questions
Do you require any specific vendors?
Yes. The only vendor we require that you use is either Pour Me or Serve 'Em Up for your liquor bartending services. You can find their information on our preferred vendors tab.
Do you require security?
If you have alcohol at your wedding, security is required. We will set this up for you, though. Payment is required when the officer arrives at the beginning of the reception. It is $35 per hour per officer. One officer is required per 100 people.
How many guests can you hold?
We have enough tables and chairs to hold 225 guests with some seating being on the covered porch so there is ample room for the dance floor, DJ, bar, cake table, gift table, etc. The barn comfortably seats 200 guests for an indoor reception.
Are there any hidden costs?
Nope! The only other payment we require other than the initial deposit and final payment are two checks, each for $500, that cover a damage and time overage deposit. You will give these to us at your 30 day meeting, but they are not “cashed” unless there is a damage to the barn or unless cleaning is still underway after midnight.
Can I have my rehearsal or rehearsal dinner at Dove?
We hold weddings every day of the week, so there may be a wedding the night before yours, but if there is not we do allow you to have a 1 hour rehearsal the night before your wedding. If there is a wedding taking place the night before your wedding, we are happy to schedule your 1 hour rehearsal Monday-Thursday the week of your wedding, or you can rehearse the morning of your wedding starting at 9 AM at no additional cost. If you would prefer to have your rehearsal dinner the Friday before your Saturday wedding, please look in to our 3 day wedding package on the pricing tab.
Do you provide any décor or linens?
At this time, we do not. Check out our preferred vendors tab to view our recommended rental options.
Do you offer In-House Coordinating or Wedding Planning Services?
Yes we do! Please see the MadLove Events tab at the top of our website for further details!
