Reception Pricing

Here's how to navigate your way to a perfect party

Begin with the Basic Event. The Basic Event includes all of your table and chair set-ups, plus decor and amenities. The Basic Event price depends on the number of guests you are expecting and the day of the week that you are hosting your event. You also receive more than just the tables and chairs. Much more! Scroll down to the Basic Event package to see what's included with each event.

Next, choose the packages that contain what you'd like us to provide. Each package focuses on specific parts of your reception. Everything you have the Chateau provide will be set up for you. When you walk through the door on the day of your party, everything that the Chateau has provided will be set up and ready for you. You'll need only to finish setting up things that you have handled yourself. Once your things are set out It's time to enjoy your party!

We can help you host the perfect event that includes only the things you need and nothing you don't. And importantly, our packages can give you the most help, at the best possible price!

Buffet Package | END

Beverage with Meal Package

We prepare, set-up, and maintain 3 non-alcoholic beverages for the duration of your party.

The Beverage Station that includes two beverages, plus water:

Choose two:

Iced tea

Lemonade

Pink Lemonade

Coffee

All disposable cups, stirrers & condiments included.

If you choose not use our beverage service, you need to bring your own beverages, dispensers, cups, napkins, and coolers. Or rent our coolers for $35.00 and do your own set-up, maintenance, and take-down.

*You may be thinking that your bartender could serve the non-alcoholic drinks that go with the meal from the bar. This is not ideal since the bar is a long distance from the buffet. Serving those drinks from the bar will make your guests navigate guest tables and walk to the other side of the room for their non-alcoholic drink that goes with the meal. Serving non-alcoholic drinks at the bar adds congestion by bringing children and everyone to the bar which really slows down bar service, so we don't recommend this style of service. But, if you feel that it's necessay to use the bar to serve the drinks that go with the meal, the charge is $1.50 per guest and the bartender will serve your non-alcoholic beverages from the bar.

$1.95 per guest. The number of servings will equal your guest count.

To calculate the total price, take the price of the hall rental, and add the price of the packages. Next add the 8.5% service charge for Venue Management. Lastly, apply the 8.25% tax to all but the hall rental and now you have your price.

$3.35 per guest for 199 guests or less. The bar guest count is 80% of total, which allows for children and light drinkers.

$3.85 per guest for 200 guests or over (x80%) and one additional bartender is needed, but only for service hours. 2nd bartender for service only and does not clean-up or set-up.

Minimum bar guest count is 100.

If you would like your bar to be open longer, extended bartending service is charged at the rate of $45.00 per hour.

You can provide your own specialty cups, but the package price remains the same.

One bartender for every 125 drinking guests is advised. A good bartender can handle additional guests, but the bartender may sometimes have a line at your bar when your party begins. Lines will tend to happen at the beginning of your party, when your bar first opens and everyone is ordering their first drink. Once that initial rush is over, the flow of guests will return to normal and any line at the bar will be minimal. The more involved your bar offerings are, the more likely it is that you will need a second bartender.

The serving of alcohol by our bartenders is one of our few requirements and is not an option. This is needed to meet the building insurance policy requirements.

To calculate the total price, take the price of the hall rental, and add the price of the packages. Next add the 8.5% service charge for Venue Management. Lastly, apply the 8.25% tax to all but the hall rental and now you have your price.

Most of the reception packages are priced per person, so here's how it goes.

We set 10 guests to a table. If an item were to cost $23.00, the calculation for a price per person would be $23.00 cost / 10 guests per table = $2.30 per person.

The service reception packages are priced at a flat rate due to hourly staff rates. These cost calculations are figured by taking an hourly staff rate and multiplying that rate by the number of hours that staff is needed.

One bartender for every 125 drinking guests is advised. A good bartender can handle additional guests, but the bartender may sometimes have a line at your bar when your party begins. Lines will tend to happen at the beginning of your party, when your bar first opens and everyone is ordering their first drink. Once that initial rush is over, the flow of guests will return to normal and any line at the bar will be minimal. The more extensive and involved your bar offerings are, the more likely it is that you will need a second bartender.
