Frequently Asked Questions
If our Saturday event ends at Midnight, does that mean that all of our guests have be gone by midnight?
Your guests should be heading home by 12am.
For a Saturday night wedding, does clean-up have to be completed by midnight?
Tear down and clean up can continue once your guests have gone home. All decorations must be removed from all spaces. The Lageret is used Sunday mornings so spaces that MUST be empty are: the ceremony space, the lower level dance floor area and bar. The bar needs to be straightened up with no liquor or drinks insight. If you are unable to load out all of your personal belongings Saturday night, you may return Sunday after 12pm or Monday morning. All delivered rentals need to be picked up Monday morning.
How exactly should the venue be left upon our departure?
The tables and chairs provided by The Lageret need to be broken down and returned to the staging area on the second floor. All garbage & recycling (kitchen, bar, guest) must be removed from the building and placed in the dumpster. The cleaning fee included in your rental of The Lageret includes the cleaning of the bathrooms, the bar (with the exception of the items you / or catering provide, as well as removal of garbage & recycling) and moping the venue floors.
What are the clean up and removal of rental requirements for a Friday night event?
More than likely The Lageret will be rented for the Saturday following your Friday event. ALL event clean up must be completed by 1 AM. This includes: all tables and chairs provided by The Lageret, must be returned to where they were originally found, all personal items and décor must be taken with you when you depart, any additional rentals that were delivered must be picked up that night by the rental companies.
Does The Lageret provide staff to move the ceremony chairs to the dinner space during the cocktail hour?
The Lageret does not have onsite staff. Normally the task of moving chairs from the ceremony space to the dinner tables would be managed by your Wedding Planner or Day of Coordinator. The Lageret can provide a limited service of a table and chair set up and tear down (if it is not provided in your planner’s services) for $300.00.
Are we required to hire a professional wedding planner or day of coordinator?
The Lageret does not have onsite staff. It is of the utmost importance that your day runs smoothly – having a Wedding Planner or Day of Coordinator ensures this. Please visit our Preferred Vendors page.
Do you provide a list of preferred caterers for us to work with?
We have a fantastic list of preferred caterers. You are not required to use them, however if you have a caterer you prefer who is not on our list, they will need to pre-approved prior to hiring them. It is important that your caterers approach to working at The Lageret is complementary to the experience of hosting your event at The Lageret. Please visit our Preferred Vendors page.
Is Flora by Jamae the exclusive wedding florist for The Lageret?
The Lageret has special meaning to me, I have put a lot of thought and heart into the aesthetics and the restoration of The Lageret. I would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss how Flora by Jamae can create wedding floral that is specific to your wedding day, ideas and décor. But no, Flora by Jamae is not the exclusive wedding florist for The Lageret. You can view my work at www.florabyjamae.com.
Does the Lageret supply alcohol?
The Lageret does not supply alcohol and alcohol cannot be sold. What that means is that you or your caterer can supply the beer, spirits, and wine for your event, and that you are “hosting” the beverages for your event. Along with your or your caterer providing beverages, you are also required to have beverages served by licensed bartender(s). There are many bartending services and/or your caterer may be able to provide this service and licensure for your event. All bartending services must provide a liquor liability policy.
