Frequently Asked Questions
How do I secure our date?
Dates are secured with a deposit:
- A $500 deposit at the time of booking with the remaining balance +gst due 90 days prior to your wedding date.
Accepted payment methods are Mastercard, Visa, Interac, E-Transfer or Cheque.
Are there decorating restrictions or limitations?
Not really. We want you to have as much freedom as possible to bring your wedding vision to life!
The main concerns we have are simply in regards to safety:
- Open flame of any kind (including candles and tealights) are only allowed inside the wedding barn, no candles are permitted anywhere else on the Ranch due to the fire hazard.
- Tiki torches are prohibited.
- Fireworks are strictly prohibited, no exceptions & no second warnings. Fireworks are extremely dangerous to our surroundings, any fireworks set off will result in a call to the authorities and the responsible person(s) will be asked to leave immediately. If your photographer would like to arrange pictures done with sparklers, please let us know ahead of time as we do allow this if precautions are taken and a member of our team is on-site. *If there is a fire ban in place sadly sparklers are also banned as the fire district has deemed them extrememly hazardous during a fire ban.
Can we bring our own caterer?
Of Course! We have some amazing recommendations on our Vendors page, but you're welcome to use anyone you like.
If we serve wine is there a corking fee to have a member of your staff open it?
Ummmm...no. Although each bottle will be tested for flavour and quality control purposes! (just kidding!)
Is there a cake cutting fee?
Definitely not. Simply let us know ahead of time and we will coordinate the help you need.
Will other events be scheduled at the Ranch during our weekend?
No. The Ranch is fully dedicated to your wedding only.
What is your alcohol policy?
If you are serving any kind of alcohol (even if it is free) you will need a Special Occasions Licence. They can be purchased online at solo.bcldb.com
Are there restrictions on campfires?
Yes. Wood fires are strictly prohibited, however, guests are welcome to bring a propane firepit if they'd like.
