Frequently Asked Ceremony Questions:
1. Do you offer indoor wedding ceremonies during months that aren’t ideal for outdoor ceremonies?
If you are looking to hold your reception in a month that is not ideal for an outdoor ceremony or happen to have a rainy event day, we have the perfect setting! Our indoor accommodations are stress-free and provide a beautiful alternative to an outdoor ceremony with the convenience of having everyone in one place! Indoor ceremonies vary in cost depending on the size/date of the event, call for pricing.
2. Is there a place for the wedding party to dress for the ceremony?
Both indoor and outdoor ceremonies include dressing rooms that offer the wedding party a place to dress before the ceremony. The women’s room has a large vanity for the bridesmaids and a smaller one for the bride. Both the men’s and women’s offer a single stall shower, great for groomsmen after a round of morning golf the day of the event, or to use as a changing area for the ladies!
3. Can we bring in snacks/lunch for the wedding party the day of the event?
You are welcome to pre-order food and beverage items for the dressing room through our event coordinator. Finger sandwiches, Mimosas, chocolate covered strawberries, bottled water, and fruit trays are always popular, but we are happy to offer you whatever you desire! Please view our menu options page for dressing room menu suggestions. Our food license does not allow any outside food or beverage items to be brought into the facility (including champagne and bottled water), but all pre-ordered banquet menu selections are applied to your food and beverage minimum.
4. What happens if there is inclement weather on the day of my event?
Great question and we have the perfect answer! With the rental of the gazebo, we provide you with a breath-taking indoor alternative for no additional fee. You would need to decide to move the ceremony inside three hours before the ceremony is scheduled to start, but your event coordinator is happy to assist you with the decision process. We will set-up the chairs for the ceremony inside and take care of replacing any dining tables that are needed after the ceremony. Since every couple is unique, we leave the ceremony décor up to you.
5. What does it cost to hold an outdoor gazebo ceremony?
The fee to use the gazebo for a wedding ceremony is only $600.00. However, discounted rates are available for ceremonies Sunday-Thursday, indoor ceremonies, and for smaller outdoor groups.
6. What is included with the rental of the gazebo?
If you are renting the gazebo for your ceremony, the indoor alternative with chairs for inclement weather and the rehearsal are included with the gazebo rental and are not additional fees. We do not provide the chairs for outdoor ceremonies, but you are welcome to rent them from anywhere you would like to. Chairs must be set-up and taken down the same day as the event.
7. What decor is provided for indoor and outdoor ceremonies?
Since every couple is unique, all of the alter/ceremony decor is left up to you. You are welcome to use rose petals, but they must be real if they are used outdoors as we have lots of wildlife on our grounds. Our outdoor gazebo area has beautiful landscaping and several types of flowers, but you are welcome to add to it if you would like. Visit our Facebook and Pinterest pages for décor ideas!
8. Can we have music outside?
You are welcome to use a dj, band, choir, orchestra, string quartet, soloist, harpist, or anything else you would like for your ceremony. There are several outlets located by the gazebo for your use. Most dj services will provide you with the sound system for your outdoor event.
9. Can we hold a rehearsal in the gazebo?
You are welcome to hold your rehearsal here at Lake Windsor. Rehearsals done in the gazebo must be scheduled with the events coordinator and will be scheduled around ceremonies that are scheduled for that date. The rehearsal must be completed one hour before the other ceremony is scheduled to start. Lake Windsor was nominated for “Best Rehearsal Dinner” venue by WI Bride Magazine and would be happy to make arrangments for you to hold your rehearsal dinner here following your rehearsal.
