Tastings are complimentary for the Bride & Groom, although a fee may be applicable depending on the Tasting Menu selections. There will be a $25 charge per additional guest attending the Tasting (max 6 people).

We understand that the wedding cake is very special and unique to our couples and we therefore allow you to bring your cake from an outside vendor. In this instance, should you require us to cut and serve your cake, a cake-cutting fee of $2.25 per person will apply.

HOW DO I HANDLE GRATUITIES? WHAT ARE THE SERVICE CHARGES?

All food and beverage is subject to an automatic 18% service charge. The service charge covers all gratuities for banquet setup, servers, bartenders and managers provided by Tsawwassen Springs. Please note that services charges are subject to 5% GST. Service charges and taxes are non-negotiable.

CAN I BRING IN CANDLES?

Yes, candles are allowed in our event space separately or as a part of your floral arrangements. However, due to fire regulations, all candles must be in a glass or ceramic holder that extends at least one inch above the flame and limited to five per table. Taper candles are not allowed. Please communicate arrangements regarding placement with your Event Sales Manager. Tsawwassen Springs can provide tea lights and holders at no additional charge, maximum three per table.

WHAT ABOUT REHEARSALS FOR THE CEREMONY?

Your rehearsal time is included complimentary. Rehearsals are scheduled for one hour, based on room availability, and must be reserved in advance through your Event Sales Manager.

WHEN SHOULD THE MUSIC END?

We highly recommend that your music ends ½ - 1 hour before the end of your reception, or by 12 – 12:30 am. This allows enough time for your guests to give their best wishes to you and leave for the evening before the event ends.

WHEN DO YOU NEED TO KNOW MY FINAL NUMBER OF GUESTS?

We will require an estimated # of attendees 1 month prior to your wedding. Your final guaranteed number of attendees is required 14 days in advance of your wedding day, along with full prepayment of your Estimated Bill prepared by your Event Sales Manager.

CAN I TAKE ANY LEFTOVER FOOD OR BEVERAGES?

Local Health Department rulings regarding proper refrigeration and sanitation prohibit you from taking any food or beverage with the exception of your wedding cake.

WHEN CAN MY VENDORS SET UP?

Your contract will include standard allowances for your vendor set up and take down time. Should you feel that you will require more time, please discuss options with your Event Sales Manager.
