What is the rental fee and what does it include?

Please see the details found here for venue investment and included items.

How many people can your location accommodate?

With approximately 26,000 sq. ft. to play with indoors, we can easily accommodate up to 800 guests, but we only provide seating for up to 250 guests.

What dates are available?

Please see the available dates information here

Is there a deposit? When are the additional payments due? 

Yes. A non-refundable deposit of fifty percent (50%) is due at the contract signing, with the balance due two weeks prior to your event date. 

Are there any hidden fees?

There are no hidden fees, but we do require a $750 security deposit and event insurance.

The security deposit will be due no later than two weeks prior to the event. Highland Stables Events will determine if there is any excessive clean-up or damage done to the property as a result of your event and, if necessary, the security deposit will be applied towards any needed repairs. 

At Highland Stables, we do require you to get event insurance. This policy is to protect you, the renter, from any potential issues that could arise if a guest were to injure themselves during your time at Highland Stables. 

How do I reserve a date?

To reserve a date, email us at info@highlandstablesbg.com saying you are ready to book XYZ date if it is still available. We suggest you email us stating you are ready to book your preferred date and then include a backup date in case you preferred date is unavailable. Prior to booking a date, we hope you are able to come out in person to visit Highland Stables. You can request a tour (or a Facetime tour, if you live out of the area) on our tour request page, but an in-person tour is not required prior to booking a date. Dates are reserved on a first requested basis. Whomever has requested to start the contract process from us by email first for a specific date, will be the first in line.

Do I need to schedule a tour or can I just stop by?

We kindly request that all tours are by appointment only. You can request a tour here.

Will there be another wedding the same day?

At Highland Stables, we only host one wedding each day to ensure that each couple's event is special and receives our full attention.

What tables do you have available and what size are they?

Included in your rental we offer two 8-foot tables, six 6-foot tables, five 6-foot farmhouse tables, three 8-foot farmhouse tables, eight bistro tables, and thirty-two 60" wide round tables. The capacity and linen size for these are listed below.

8-foot tables: 4 people per side and 1 person on each end | Linen: 90" x 156" oblong or rectangle
6-foot tables: 3 people per side and 1 person on each end | Linen 90" x 132" oblong or rectangle
60" round tables: 8 people per table | Linen: 120" round
Bistro Table Linens: 120" round

Do you provide table linens, cups, and silverware, etc?

No. Highland Stables provides an awesome venue, tables, upgraded wedding chairs, and decor for the allotted amount of time. Linens can be rented through us, but are NOT included in the rental fee. You are also welcome to bring your own linens.

What happens in case of rain?

Our indoor space is beautifully laid out. If you have an outdoor event planned, and Mother Nature won’t cooperate, we can easily move your event indoors and comfortably accommodate all of your guests. If you plan to host up to 300 guests, the venue doesn't have to be "flipped" from your ceremony to the reception. Reception tables are all available to be setup prior to the ceremony and need not be moved in case of rain. This ensures a smooth transition into the reception and makes the decision to bring a ceremony inside (or not), much less stressful.

We plan to have our ceremony offsite, or only plan to have our ceremony at Highland Stables. Does your fee change?

Because we only host one event per day, our fee structure remains the same whether you hold your ceremony, reception, or both on-site. 

What about parking?

Our venue offers ample parking, and we provide parking attendants for the beginning of your event.

Is there space for me to get ready?

We offer a gorgeous, private bridal lounge complete with a full vanity and comfy sofa for the bride and her party. We also have a masculine groom's lounge for the guys to have their own space, as well as a hospitality area for the family to congregate prior to the wedding.

Do you have adequate restrooms?

Highland Stables offers large, clean 4-stall restrooms that are handicap accessible, so you can avoid the dreaded Port-a-Potty.

Can you host winter events?

Absolutely! Highland Stables is equipped with heating and ample, beautifully decorated indoor spaces to accommodate winter weddings and holiday parties.

What time will I have access to the venue to decorate?

You will have access to the venue at the time listed on your contract, not earlier. Please plan accordingly. 

Do you include a "wedding day coordinator"?

A wedding day coordinator is not included in the price of rental. There will be a Highland Stables Team Member present for the duration of your event to answer any venue related questions, but that person does not coordinate your event. We highly encourage each wedding to hire a coordinator for the day of your event. If interested, we offer a day-of coordination add-on to your rental fee.
