Frequently Asked Questions

  • May I use my own vendor?​
    • Absolutely! Our open vendor policy is a part of our commitment to offer as much freedom and flexibility as possible. We require COI’s with our company listed as Additional Insured from professional caterers, as well as TABC licenses and COI’s in the same fashion from bartenders. Bella brides, grooms, and their friends/family who are not professional caterers may even bring their own food with the purchase of a one-day event insurance policy!

  • Is security required?
    • During events with alcohol, from the time alcohol service begins through to the end of the event, uniformed, professional peace officers, security guards, or police officers who are unrelated to the bride or groom must be on site at a ratio of one officer to 100 guests.
      During non-alcoholic events, we require one officer who meets the aforementioned criterion to every 200 guests.

  • When may we have a rehearsal?
    • We offer a one hour of rehearsal time prior to wedding. 

  • May I come and take bridal/couples portraits on the property?
    • For our Bella Brides and Grooms who have rented a date, we’re happy to offer complimentary portrait times from Monday-Thursday, anytime between 9 AM-5 PM! For those who have not rented a venue, but who would still like to take pictures, please refer to Photoshoot page for our photography rates.

  • Can I rent just one building? What if I don’t require a full 15-hour rental time?
    • We typically rent out full sites (i.e. the chapel and reception barn), for the full day, but hourly rental rates are sometimes offered on a case-by-case basis. Please call (469)-569-8450 if you would like more information on shorter events!

  • Will there be someone on-site for questions about the facilities?
    • Yes! There will always be someone from Team Bella Woods on call during the day of your event who will be able to adjust lighting, help with any complimentary audio and lighting, deal with major spills, adjust the temperature, etc.!
