Retainer/Book the Date

 

The retainer goes toward your total party price and holds your date. It is helpful to have an estimated guest count to give you an idea of initial pricing, but we realize that this estimate will probably change.

The retainer is non-refundable and non-transferable to another date.

Your retainer is a part of the total cost and 100% of the booking retainer goes toward your balance.

Get a signed contract. A contract benefits everyone because it's written confirmation that an agreement has been reached and the contract spells out the details.

Payment Schedule

 

A $1,200 deposit holds your date. It is helpful to have an estimated guest count to give you an idea of initial pricing, but we realize that this estimate will probably change.

50% of the most current balance is due 90 days prior to event date.

The remaining balance and final payment is due 30 days prior to your event date, along with your final guest count.

A separate $400.00 damage deposit must accompany the final payment.

Once your event has concluded and there are no damages found in the venue, you will receive your damage deposit back within two weeks.

* Late payments made less than 3 weeks prior to event date must be paid with cash.

Faq's

 

Do I need an appointment to come look at the Chateau?

We certainly prefer an appointment although drop-ins often do work out. Our staff is not always consistently available to show you around and we would like to get all of your questions answered at one time, if possible. Please call Bambi at 817-878-2515 or email her at bambi@chateauatforestpark.com and she will set something up.

 

How many people can your venue accommodate for a reception?

Up to 350 seated. For a cocktail style reception, we can accommodate more because we utilize cocktail tables which encourages guest mingling. Some clients want us to create a club atmosphere and we can easily do that. Fog is allowed.

 

What is required to hold a date?

To reserve a date at the Chateau, we require a $1,200 deposit. That's it. It is helpful to have an estimated guest count to give you an idea of initial pricing, but we realize that this estimate will probably change.

 

Why do you offer packages?

Packages are the most efficient way to offer our most popular combination of services. These packages can be tailored to your needs so that you can host the perfect event that includes only the things you need - at the best possible price. Using our services means that there are no delivery fees. There are less vendors to coordinate so it's easier to have a smooth running event.

 

Can I bring my own alcohol?

Yes, you are free to bring in your own alcohol as long as you are having a hosted bar and are not selling alcohol. We do require that you use our TABC bartenders to serve all alcohol.

 

Can I bring in my own vendors and food?

Yes. We have an open vendor policy. You may use a caterer, restaurant, food truck, or family chef to bring in food. You may also choose your own DJ, photo booth, and cake baker. Our kitchenette includes a sink, refrigerator, food warmer and ice machine. We do not have cooking equipment.

 

What about guest parking?

We have 205 parking spaces on a striped, asphalt parking lot. Our parking lot is well lit and there is no need for valet parking. You won't have to park down the street or at an adjacent vacant parking lot.

 

Will I see lines to get into the rest rooms?

No. The ladies room has 11 stalls, 3 hand sinks and a huge mirror. The men's room has 6 stalls, two hand sinks and a large mirror. There is no waiting in a line to enter either restroom.

 

Do you require security at events?

Not normally.
