Can we set up the venue ourselves?
The Little Wren Wedding coordinator will sit down with you to determine what you would like our staff to set up vs your own crew. If you choose to have the wedding in the Chapel and reception on the patio and event areas LWW will have chairs and tables ready for you when you arrive free of charge. There is a small charge ($100) to have the ceremony set up in the garden. If you choose to have the reception in the garden as well add another $50.
Can we set up for our event in advance?
Booking the venue allows you a certain amount of venue time for the day. This booked amount of time includes set up and take down. You are free to use that time as you see fit. In some cases more time can be bought if needed. If you would like the opportunity to set up early - let us know, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted on availability.

What if I want to invite more than the agreed upon number of guests?
