Questions and Answers

CAN I BRING IN MY OWN FOOD AND ALCOHOL?

Yes, you can bring in both. We believe this is a big part of your wedding and want you to have a choice of whom you use. For this reason, we do not have in-house catering. We do have a list of qualified and insured catering vendors that work with Miss Mary’s Place. All Vendors must provide Miss Mary’s Place with a Certificate of Insurance listing Miss Mary’s Place as an “Additionally Insured” Certificate Holder no later than one week before your event. Only TABC-certified bar tenders may serve liquor.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY

Many of our Couples include their pets as part of their ceremony and we welcome them! Pets are allowed on leashes only and are not allowed inside any of the buildings or flower beds. No pets are allowed on the premises without prior approval with the exceptions of service dogs. You must clean up after your pet.

WHAT IS YOUR MAXIMUM CAPACITY

We can accommodate up to 250 in the Barn and up to 125 in the Bridal Hall contingent upon seating and site plans.

CAN WE HAVE A BAND?

Absolutely! Please speak with your Miss Mary’s Representative about logistics and setting up a tour with your chosen band.

CAN WE BRING IN OUR OWN DÉCOR?

Of course! You can decorate to your heart’s desire provided that the Miss Mary’s existing décor is not damaged in the process. You may not use permanent glue, tape, tacks, screws or nails on any of our surfaces. Paintings and permanent props may not be moved. Please discuss your decorating plans with your Miss Mary’s Representative at your Final Meeting.

CAN WE USE REAL CANDLES?

Battery operated candles “only” may be used at the facility with the exception of Unity Candles.

ARE FIREWORKS AND SPARKLER ALLOWED?

No fireworks or Chinese Lanterns of any kind are allowed under any circumstances. Sparklers may be used during your Exit in front of the Bridal Hall only.

HOW DOES SET-UP AND BREAK DOWN WORK?

Our Standard Package includes set-up of indoor and outdoor tables, chairs and table cloths by Miss Mary’s Staff. When arriving at Miss Mary’s Place on your wedding day, the venue will be set-up per your site plan along with any Upgrade Packages or Rental Packages selected.

Miss Mary’s will breakdown our tables, chairs, cloths and Miss Mary’s décor. Removal of food items, personal items, and other decorations brought into the Venue are the responsibility of the client or their hired vendors and must be removed at the end of your Rental Period. Miss Mary’s Place is not responsible for any items left at the Venue.

WHAT IF I NEED MORE TIME?

Extra time may be purchased two weeks prior to your Event.

IS A SECURITY GUARD MANDATORY?

Yes. Approximately one week before your Event, we will provide your Event information to the Gregg County Sheriff’s Department. They will then contact you directly to discuss your Event specifics and security requirements.
