  1. Q

    How many people does your barn hold?

    A

    Our barn holds 160 people at round tables. It can hold 200 people at rectangular farm tables. The barn has 32 foot slider doors that open up onto a beautiful paver stone deck that can hold another 150 guests!
  2. Q

    Do I need wedding insurance to get married at your venue?

    A

    Yes, we require you to purchase liability insurance to get married at October Oaks! This is as much for your protection as ours should there be any damage to the property. The insurance will limit your potential liability on these rare occasions! You can purchase this insurance at a very moderate price at www.wedsafe.com.
  3. Q

    Can I decorate the barn after the rehearsal to free up the day of the wedding?

    A

    We allow you access to the property beginning at 8:00 am the day of the wedding so that you can take your time decorating the barn and still have adequate time to relax and get ready. You are welcome to decorate the night of the rehearsal (for an additional fee) as long as there is not another wedding that night. We also offer a package that includes an assistant coordinator who would love to decorate for you. This will free up your friends and family to spend more time with you before you say "I do!"
  4. Q

    Can we bring in our own food for a reception or bring in an outside caterer?

    A

    We do offer catering, and it is fabulous in our entirely biased opinon! However, we realize that you may have your heart set on someone else, so you are welcome to use any caterer as long as they are licensed and insured. Please be advised that we charge the standard 10% facility fee on the food if you choose to use an outside caterer.
  5. Q

    Can I extend my wedding past the five hours included for the ceremony and reception?

    A

    Yes, you can for an additional $300 per hour.
  6. Q

    Can I have a caterer bring in lunch while we spend the day getting ready at the bridal cabin?

    A

    Absolutely! Please be advised that we charge a standard 10% facility fee on the food if you choose to have lunch catered.
  7. Q

    Can I have a sparkler exit?

    A

    You can! In fact, we have a gorgeous balcony in front of the barn that will allow your photographer to capture your beautiful exit from above! (The only exception would be during a state-mandated burn restriction.)
  8. Q

    Can I use candles?

    A

    Yes, you may! Since we have 80 acres of grass and woods, we just ask that you have your candles surrounded by glass to prevent any fires!
  9. Q

    Can we drive your golf cart?

    A

    No. Unfortunately, from a liability perspective, we cannot allow you to drive. We are happy to assist you in bringing items down to the barn or driving you to your car. We are also there for anyone who is handicapped or elderly who might need a ride.
  10. Q

    Can we use the bridal cabin for babysitters or children during the reception?

    A

    No, the cabin is only for the bride and her girls!
  11. Q

    Can I have a pet at my wedding?

    A

    Yes! We have numerous brides and grooms who want their animal to be a part of the ceremony. Please let us know if you will be including your pet(s) at our four week meeting. You are also fully responsible for the clean-up and supervision of your pet. No pets will be allowed in the bridal cabin.
  12. Q

    Can I come out to the property prior to my four week meeting to show friends or family?

    A

    Sure! We would love for you to show off your venue! We just ask that you set an appointment.
  13. Q

    Is there a discount if our wedding is "off season?"

    A

    We are blessed to have both air conditioning and heat in our barn! We also have a natural canopy of trees that is perfect for outdoor ceremonies, even in the heat of the summer! Because we can accommodate weddings throughout the year, we do not offer discounts from month to month.
  14. Q

    Are there premium dates?

    A

    Any holiday weekend would be considered a premium date, and will likely be a bit more expensive. Please contact us if you are interested in a holiday wedding, and we will give you pricing! We will not be hosting weddings on Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Easter.
  15. Q

    What if it rains on the day of our ceremony?

    A

    As much as we pray that it will never rain during a wedding ceremony, we have built a beautiful barn understanding that, in Florida, we will periodically encounter rain. Our 3000 square foot barn can be used for both your ceremony and reception if need be. Depending on the size of your reception, we can also have the dance floor inside. You are welcome to rent a tent for the ceremony, reception, dancing, or all of the above!
