A. At Waterford at Springfield, your evening reception may start as early as 4:00 p.m. At Waterford at Fair Oaks, the earliest time for an evening reception is 5:30 p.m.
A. On a Saturday night, almost always. However, the arrival times for wedding receptions are staggered by at least 30 minutes. Therefore, you will be in your ceremony, cocktail party or ballroom if another party is coming in.
A. At Waterford at Fair Oaks we recommend the Hyatt Fair Lakes and the Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax. At Waterford at Springfield we recommend the Springfield Hilton. These are beautiful properties that offer our guests outstanding weekend rates. Plus, they will shuttle your guests to and from your event at Waterford at no extra charge.
A. Yes, many of our bridal couples have also had their ceremonies at Waterford. There is a $6.00 per person fee for the ceremony.
A. Our Chef is happy to do a tasting for you. This usually takes place at your 90-day meeting (three months before your event), when you will also be finalizing some of the other plans for your event. Select two or three of the entrees that you would like to taste and the Chef will choose the accompanying vegetables and starches.
A. No. Unlike the policy at some properties that reserve the right to bump you for a conference or other event, we will never bump any event that has a signed contract with up-to-date deposit(s) for any reason.
A. Our Chef provides some of the most delectable food, from scratch, that you will ever taste. For this reason, and for liability reasons as well, we do not allow guest to bring their own food. However, there are a few exceptions.
A. A non-refundable deposit is due upon booking ($1,200 for groups under 200 in size, $2,000 and up for larger parties). If you choose, your deposit and signed contract are not due for up to two weeks after we give you your tentative contract. If another party comes in during that two-week period and wishes to book your room and date, we will call you immediately and you then have that day to either confirm you reservation with a deposit or release the space to the second party. We cannot hold your space without a deposit any longer than two weeks past the date that you received your tentative contract.
You will also have a 35% (of the anticipated total) payment due 90 days before your event. The balance is due with your final head count Friday a week before your event.
A. Yes, a round mirror (11 ½” diameter), three votive candles and a vase (6” opening on top, 6 ½” tall, 8” diameter).
