There are no limits, but REMEMBER that EVERYTHING must be set up AND taken down within your rental time, so there are costs (hourly) for customizing for a beach wedding, if you choose. However, because of the lower hourly cost for daytime events, vs the cost for evening events, your costs for beach setup are lower. You may supply your own beach customization items for us and we'll install them, take them down, and return them to you for a simple hourly rate. And remember that there's always a guest that needs to sit down, so some provision for chairs - either by you or by us - should be considered for a beach wedding. Also, this beach is down a long flight of stairs, though there is a path at the east end of the beach, so make provisions for disabled or wheelchair bound guest transportation at event accordingly.
Mansion on the Lake offers our bridal parties table settings that can include the flowers chosen by the bridal party. (We have priced the table setting flowers separately in our FAQS and Price page.) In the example below, the bride also chose silk flowers with matching live flowers for the table settings and cake, to be able to keep her wedding bouquet in a vase for life. Mansion on the Lake was honored to assist the bride in assembling her own flowers and offer the same choice to others, if they choose. Costs vary, depending upon choice of flowers, complexity of arrangements, and the extent to which you want flowers. The wedding displayed would represent a total cost of between $350 and $450, including the table setting flowers. Our Table Settings Can Include Any Color or Flower Selection... More Ideas...

MUSIC CHOICES THAT COUNT! When asked, 40 % of respondents said that the effect of music was more arousing than the touch of their partner. We have special arrangements with musicians from Rock to Calypso to String Quartets... groups that sing and entertain. Tell us what you'd like and we'll get you some options. You may also consider a DJ...or bring your own music! There's nothing like a steel drum in a calypso band that brings out the "beach" attitude in a party. Mansion on the Lake does not require you to follow any set format, as we are a private venue that does not (normally) have contracts for music or music providers, which allows you to make your own choices. ----------------------------------- WeddingWire has a big list of great wedding songs...linked HERE!

Our Dinner Suggestions Come From Decades of Experience Serving the Most Delicious Meals, Prepared by Chefs that Specialize in Making Your Wedding Experience Unique and Forever Memorable. We can prepare ANYTHING you like....whether you find it in the typical suggestions below, or not. Ask us for a sample of your favorite meal! (Suggestion - Consider lowering your costs by only serving a brunch or late luncheon to your most intimate friends or family (not more than 65...) earlier in the day, followed by your "big" beach wedding. Your wedding can then have an almost unlimited number of guests...all on the beach. That way, you can save the cost of feeding everyone an expensive meal, reduce your rental time of the mansion, and still serve beverages, sandwiches and dessert in the pavilion above the beach, after the wedding.)

With a Mansion on the Lake wedding, we include a sign that you can put on the grass at the entrance to the Mansion, place on your car or hang as a banner.
Weddings are a major life event. See how your wedding "stacks up" against the weddings of others HERE!
Depending upon where you live (zip code), and how you plan your wedding there is a wide range of factors that will tell you what the "average" is for your choices for your wedding. Here's a link where you can get a "range" of what a wedding will cost. We suggest you try to get prices that lower the cost on this estimate form.
Who better than the Wall Street Journal, coupled with Smart Money, featuring a video produced by The Knot, to best illustrate the 10 Ways to Save on a Wedding. At Mansion on the Lake...we embrace ALL 10 of these great ideas. Ask us how to create a cost saving wedding for you (...can't help but mention they suggest to find a venue that "looks beautiful" and is ready for your wedding so you don't have to decorate to make it look good....just saying) SUGGESTION - Want a BIG wedding without the big expense? Have a brunch for your most intimate friends and family members...say 60 people or so, that ends at a specific time, say at about 4 or 5 PM. You then end your rental time at the mansion, saving money. Also, you concurrently schedule your actual event on the beach at 5PM, and you can then invite hundreds (!?!) for the actual ceremony, since you won't have the expense of feeding them. We can provide snacks, sandwiches and beverages from the small, covered pavilion that overlooks the beach...at a MUCH lower cost than a complete meal... just suggesting...
Top 20 Beach Wedding Tips Licensing – Make sure you have it done...just a hint! And then, make sure to bring your license with you when you get married! Permits – Scheduling with the City is necessary for use of public facilities. You must give us ample time to notify the city and be prepared for disappointment if the beach, pavilion or mansion is already rented. Start early. What to Wear on the Beach? Brides wear all styles, lengths and colors, with or without trains and veils. Shoes are left on the promenade or beach entrance. Grooms keep their shoes on – it’s a guy thing. Consider bringing a bucket of paint brushes (the dollar store) for between the toes sand removal before strapping on those heels. Prevents walking and dancing blisters. Also, consider issuing or recommending flipflops or other beach suitable shoes for your guests. Rehearse, Rehearse, Rehearse. Preferably at the ceremony location. Don’t show up at your own wedding and encounter chaos. Do not under any circumstances watch The Weather Channel the week of the wedding. Let a designated person do it. Enjoy yourselves. The weather will be what it is. Make the best of it. It makes your wedding day story unique. Some of the most romantic weddings had a little rain. Assign someone you trust – preferably not a bridal party member – and give them total responsibility and authority to make the decision the day of the wedding to change the ceremony location in case of inclement weather. This person will tell you and the groom where you are now going to be married – but only if necessary. If you need to have chairs or other items delivered to the "other" location, you can simply redirect your chair provider. Be on time. The day goes by so fast. Everyone is happier, especially you, if you have more time for those beach photos and more time at the reception. Be on time. The No No No don’t go there list – No runners on the sand. They are treacherous and only make good wind sails. No PA systems or microphones. Let the ocean waves break and the breeze blow for the best sound affects. The wedding officiate knows how to project. Ask and "readers" you choose to speak-up. Even calypso bands don't have PA systems... Memoriams – Consider readings, a dove or balloon release and that special song, ringing little bells, bubbles or a single flower toss into the Lake off the rock breakwall after the ceremony with the officiate. Honor absent, deceased or seriously ill family and friends. Sand Pouring Ceremonies – What a wonderful way to symbolically unite two families with children from previous relationships into one new entity without intimidating the young ones. It is something they will always remember. And it is fun too! Each one gets to pour their own personal sand color. Also, sand castles, sculptures and sand events are great ways to unify a family. Save unity candle services for the reception. Do it with the blessing before dinner. Wind and strong breezes can make it difficult on the beach. Do a sand pouring ceremony instead. Make the most of the beach and the sand. Provide every guest a chair for the ceremony. If that isn't possible, spread them out into groups. Don’t ask your guests to stand in clumps on the beach. It looks very messy and chaotic. It can also look cheap. Provide an aisle for the bride, bridal party and parents. Your guests came a long way for you. Make them comfortable at your beach wedding. Protocol on the beach – Assign the groomsmen to ask the guests to be seated on the beach before the bride gets to the promenade or beach. Guests mean well, but get excited at the sight of the bride. Let her enter in peace and calm to the processional. Be sure to coordinate your officiate and your musicians before the ceremony so that you are not the one queuing the processional, readings, musical interludes, sand pouring, dove releases and recessionals at your own ceremony. Remember once the officiate takes over the ceremony he/she has control of the guests, bridal party and musicians. Another reason to rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. Rings – bring them. And keep them in small ring pouches rather than bulky ring boxes. Try not to drop them in the sand. Do not give the real rings to a ring bearer on the beach. Tie fake rings to the ring pillow. Let your parents enjoy your wedding day with you. Don’t make them work. The bridal party is supposed to help with everything first, then look beautiful, handsome and have a good time second. That’s why they call them BridesMAIDS and GROOMSmen. Parking isn't always convenient or available. Encourage car pooling and limosines. Bring a cooler to the beach filled with ice, bottled water and rolled wash cloths (the dollar store again). Great for hot days, trolley, the ceremony, and beach photos in the sun. If the weather does not cooperate don’t forget to notify the officiate, the guests, trolley, limo, the ceremony musicians, the videographer and photographer. They are not psychic. Most important of all is to….Have Fun on Your Wedding Day!
