Yes, all of the options are open to you for use at your wedding. Confetti and glitter are not allowed.

Can we come early to decorate?

If you need any additional time that is not already included in the package, they need to be scheduled ahead of time and you will be charged $100 per hour. There is no extra time allowed on Sundays as we will need to be able to get our cleaning crew in.

Can tables and chairs be moved for our event?

Tables inside the clubhouse may be moved around but will not be removed from the room. With the exception of the crank tables along the outside windows, tables on the porches may be moved off to the sides but will not be moved from the premises. The concrete tables and benched outside are not to be moved.

Who will set up and break down our event?

Usually you have the option of your caterers or vendors setting up and breaking down anything they might bring, but any other set up or breakdown will be taken care of by you, whether it is your family and friends or someone whom you have hired.

Will Fireplaces be lit?

With weather on your side, fireplaces will be lit by our staff before the event starts so they are nice and toasty for your guest. Fireplaces will not be lit if there are high winds and/or if there are drought like conditions. If it is hot outside but you want the look of a fire, you might consider filling it with candles or citronella lamps.

What is done to decrease the amount of mosquitos?

If your event is at the time of year when we have mosquitos we will fog with a commercial fogger the day before and morning of your event. We also will have tiki torches available for your use if needed.

Are we allowed to hang things from the walls, ceilings, and surrounding trees?

Please do not use nails, tack, staples, glue guns, or heavy duty tape, to attach things to the walls or ceilings. Museum putty or any type of ribbon, twine, fishing line, or string is acceptable. Command products are welcome as well as long as they do not cause harm to the walls.

  • Palm Grove is the perfect stage with beautiful backdrops for celebrations that create new memories with family and friends. My first visit to the chapel was very striking and I will never forget it.

    Sarah B
  • The easiest way to impress someone is to invite them to a party at Palm Grove. Our family reunions have been rejuvinated becasue family can spend time around the lake or on the porch, and then catch-up in the cool of the air-conditioned Clubhouse. Everyone has choices and year after year they get excited to come back to the family reunion at Palm Grove.
