An initial guest count will be given at the time of booking. This count will be used to determine the date reservation fee. To ensure accurate ordering and staffing, a final guest count is required 10 business days prior to the date of your event. There is a date reservation fee of 50% of the total anticipated contract price. The date of your event is secured when this fee has been paid. This fee is based on the initial guest count provided by you at the time of the event booking. This fee will be deducted from the final bill.
