You have now booked and the time for the wedding is creeping closer and closer, and all of a sudden panic!
Don’t worry we are here to help. First here are things to remember regarding the venue.
One or two months before if you are using the chapel, we must decide on a time for rehearsal. It is usually a Thursday night, but your officiator will be in contact with you and together you will decide on a time. Since there could be as many as three rehearsals that evening, please show up at the booked time. The booking times are usual 6:00 pm, 7:00 pm and 8:00 pm. As you can see we allow one hour per rehearsal.
For the rehearsal bring your marriage license and the little booklet we give you from the minister at time of booking, which is explaining the type of service the officiators provide.
In regards to the music please let us know your preferences well in advance. If the music needs to be amplified, you must bring your own equipment. We have all the traditional chapel music on the CDs. In case if you want the DJ to play the music then please make the necessary arrangements.
In the hall.
If you are having the party at Madsen’s then you can arrange to bring everything that you are going to need on the day of the wedding, such as all the booze, all your decorations, etc. some days before your event, that way we will look after it and thereby you can relax on the day of your wedding.
For wedding decoration and other set-ups, it is usually done on the day of the event. Due to multiple weddings that also means that if your wedding is on a Friday or Saturday you must remove everything of yours that same night so that we can clean and set up the hall again for the next wedding. We will look after all garbage and things you do not want anymore. Remember if you are doing your own chair covers, the must be removed that night.
The floor plan is very important to us and we need that floor plan at least two days before your day. Therefore for Friday weddings, since you have rehearsal on Thursday, it is too late for you to bring it to us at that rehearsal. We need it no later than Wednesday morning. The same goes for Saturday and Sunday, please get it to us as soon as you can. On the floor plan please also let us know if you need buffet tables, cake table or having a photo booth or candy table or anything else which would need a table. They more we know about your set up the better we can help you.
