Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I have the room?

You can party away from 8 AM – 2 AM. If you have a four or eight-hour rental the hours will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Can I extend the rental period?

18 hours isn’t enough? For $250 per hour, you can extend the celebration.

Can I use any caterer?

Mellwood knows that food is an important aspect of any party. As such, Mellwood allows any caterers without charging a service fee. You can even do a potluck style!

Can I bring my own alcohol?

Yes! Your host liability insurance allows you to supply your own alcohol from any store. Paid bars will need licensed bartenders or a caterer with a permit to sell alcohol. Open bars simply require someone 21 or over to serve drinks.

Does Mellwood supply linens?

No, we do not supply linens. You will need to purchase or rent linens from a separate vendor.

Are candles allowed?

While Mellwood hopes your celebration is lit, we can only allow tea lights and candles submerged in water in our event rooms.

When will I receive my damage deposit back?

Mellwood will contact you within one week if you have lost part of your damage deposit. If you have not been contacted within a week of your event, you should expect to receive your damage deposit back in full. Please allow 30-60 days to receive the check through the mail. It will be sent to the address on the check or address supplied on the contract unless otherwise specified.

Can we hire someone to remove the ceremony chairs prior to our reception?

Need more space for dancing the night away? MAEC can supply a crew to remove ceremony chairs for $1 per chair
