FAQs

 

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 available to show you around on a consistent basis and we would like to get all of your questions answered. 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. We have hosted cocktail style receptions for up to 450 guests. For a cocktail style reception, we utilize cocktail tables mingling for guests. 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 $1200 deposit. That's it.

 

Why do you offer packages?

Packages are the most efficient way to offer our most popular combination of services. Our packages have been put together based on what clients have told us they want. By putting our most requested services together, we can get the greatest cost efficiency because there is not an overlap of services and 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 any alcohol that is present at your event.

 

Can I bring in my own vendors and catering?

Yes. We have an open vendor policy. You may use a caterer, restaurant or family chef to bring in food. 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.

 

How about restrooms? Are long rest room lines a problem?

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. Lines into the restroom are NOT a problem.

 

Do you require security at events?

Not normally.

 

Am I responsible for cleaning the venue after my event is over?

You are responsible for removing all items that you have brought in by the end of your rental period. You (or most likely, your caterer) are also responsible for removing all trash from the facility and disposing it in the on-site dumpster. Your $200 cleaning fee will cover the tear down of the tables, chairs, etc. and a deep cleaning of the venue.
