Q Do I need to ask my guests for a pre-order?
A No. Just like being at a restaurant or any other function, our excellent serving staff will attend each table and take your guests’ orders on the day.
Q If I were to take a pre-order would this bring my price down?
A No. In theory, this is a great idea, however, in practice we find that people either forget what they have ordered or they change their minds on the day. Taking people’s food orders can also give you a lot more work when you’ve already got lots to think about and organise. We like to make everything as easy and as stress-free as we can for you. Let our staff take the strain for you.
Q Do my room rates include breakfast for my guests?
A Yes, as part of the experience we offer, all our wedding room rates are inclusive of a full Scottish breakfast for your guests.
Q My ceremony is at 2pm and check in is 3pm, how will this work for my guests?
A We advise guests to arrive at the hotel dressed for the ceremony, just like they would if they were going to a church. If their room happens to be ready, we will check them in. If their room is not ready, we will store their luggage and transfer their bags to their rooms once their rooms are ready.
Q Are children allowed to stay until the end of my wedding at nighttime.
A Yes. We know weddings are often a family occasion and children can play a large part of that too. We apply for a children’s license for every function that takes place in our hotel. As your wedding is a private function, there is no need for children to leave early. They can stay on and enjoy the party.
Q Am I allowed to bring in external caterers to do the food for my event?
A No. We do not allow external caterers to supply any of the food. We have an excellent team of experienced chefs and lots of options available. We will work with you to create any dishes or menus you would love at your event, as well as any specific dietary requirements you may have.
Q What size is your dancefloor?
A It’s always important to check out the size of the dancefloor. We love to see a busy dancefloor and people enjoying themselves. Our dancefloor is 20’ x 21’, and there’s plenty of room for throwing some moves.
Q Is there a payment plan option available?
A Yes. We know that by the time you add in everything from the dress, photographer, band, flowers and cars, you could be facing quite a large bill hangover by the time you get to end of your big day. To make it easier for you to plan your finances, we have a variety of options available to take away a bit of this worry. We have facilities to enable you to pay towards your wedding at any time. You can pop into the hotel or if you prefer we can give you bank details and you could set up a standing order to make regular payments. Alternatively, we also offer BACS transfer or Worldpay. We aim to make everything as easy as we can for you.
Q Can you help with Florist, cake, cars etc?
A Of course. Our wedding coordinator is on hand to help you with anything you need. She can make suggestions and give you a list of recommended suppliers for anything you might need for your day.
Q What size are the candelabras?
A We love our table decorations. Our candelabras are 60cm in height. They are silver 5 arm candelabras and come complete with candles to dress your tables elegantly.
Q Can I change my package after I confirm my date?
A It’s best to think carefully before you book, because you can upgrade your package at any time but you cannot downgrade. If you do decide to downgrade your package you must forfeit your deposit and rebook onto another package.
