FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 



Do you host multiple events at the same time?


We can, however, we make sure to only schedule one wedding at a time. We might have an afternoon wedding and an evening wedding the same day.


Can I rent out the entire plantation?

Yes, you can rent Nottoway for a day or weekend with the exception of the restaurant.


Can I extend my reception time?

Yes, we can add time to your event. There will be a charge and a fee if extra food and beverages are required.


What if I don't want a full open bar?

Nottoway requires that the package remain as is on a Saturday night. However, we can reduce or remove the open bar from the package at off-peak times.


Am I responsible for the rooms not reserved in my room block?

No, we give you a cut-off date prior to your event, giving us ample time to sell the rooms to another guest. You are not responsible.


What time can I get into the bridal dressing room on the day of my wedding?

Whatever time works for you. We are flexible.


Can I change the menu, or am I stuck with the options in the package?

We are happy to customize the menu to suit your needs or wedding theme. Our Chef can sit with you to finalize the menu for your big day.


Can I request specialty drinks for the bar?

If you would like to request a certain beverage option on the bar, we will make every effort to fulfill your request. Advance notice on specialty bar items is appreciated.


Can the white ballroom seat all of my guests for a ceremony?

No. We will set up about 10-15 chairs for parents, grandparents and elderly guests and the rest will be standing room only.


Do you have vendors with whom I can work?

We do not provide any outside vendors, however, we can suggest area vendors to you that we have worked with over the years.


Does Nottoway have someone available the day of the wedding to make sure everything is on time?

Yes, you will be assigned an event coordinator to assist you in finalizing the details of your event and who will work at the wedding. You will also be assigned a banquet captain to oversee the reception.


How far in advance do I need to book?

We suggest booking as soon as you have made a decision. We book weddings up to 2 years in advance, and do not hold dates without a deposit and contract. If there is a specific date you have in mind, we suggest you don't hesitate.


How many servers will be at my wedding?

For served dinners, we assign 1 waitstaff for every 20 guests. For buffet style, we assign 1 waitstaff for every 35 guests.


Is it possible to have multiple events, such as my rehearsal dinner, at Nottoway and not use the same room?

Yes, we can host your engagement party, bridal luncheon, rehearsal dinner, wedding after party and farewell brunch and never be in the same location twice.


Is there a hotel nearby for overflow guests who aren't staying at Nottoway?

Yes, there are several nearby hotels at which you could establish a room block once Nottoway is sold out. Please inquire with your event coordinator.


What do I need to do to book my date?

We require you to sign a contract and pay a non-refundable $1,000 deposit.


What does the ceremony fee include?

The ceremony fee includes use of the grounds, chairs rental with set-up and tear down. One hour is allotted for a rehearsal run through.


What if it rains and I have an outdoor ceremony?

We always reserve a backup location in case of inclement weather. Typically the White Ballroom would serve as your backup ceremony location.


What is the security fee for?

Security is required for all weddings. It is $25 per hour, and is required for 1/2 an hour before and after the event.



Will there be a time that I can sample the food I'll be serving my guests?
