PLANNING & BUDGET QUESTIONS
How far in advance should I book my wedding venue?
Booking your wedding is one of the first things you should do when planning your wedding. This will allow you to speak with other vendors on their availability. Many couples choose to book their weddings so they have 1-2 years to plan the celebration however; we do see couples who book their wedding with less than 1 year to plan.
How many guests can your venue accommodate and is there a minimum requirement?
Generally the minimum guarantee is between 100 and 120 guests but we also offer reception rooms that can seat as little as 50 guests & up to 285 guests.
Are there different rates for peak and off-season dates?
Rates are not only affected by the season but also the time of day and the reception room you select. Off peak months like Jan. through March are more cost effective than months like April through December. As well, AM affairs are less expensive than PM and Twilight (Mid-Day) affairs.
Is there a service charge on top of the bill?
The Fox Hollow does not have a service charge. A price per person quote would be subject to an additional 20% Facility Fee and Sales Tax.
What kind of deposit is required?
Generally a first deposit is $1000 payable via, Credit Card, Cash or Check.
What is the cancellation policy?
First Deposits are Non-Refundable. Additional Deposits for cancelled affairs are only refundable upon the Fox Hollow being able to rebook the cancelled date with an affair of equal value and only after that affair has taken place. However; based on the circumstances, there are exceptions to the rule.
When is final payment due?
One week before your event we will calculate your total balance and make an appointment to pay and review all the details of your event.
