Frequently Asked Questions
What is the catering situation at the Propylaeum for weddings?
The Propylaeum is happy to partner with Jacquie's Gourmet Catering and Catering by Jonathan Byrd's for all weddings. Both of these caterers work directly with couples on menu options and pricing. The Propylaeum allows beer, wine, and liquor, and we can accommodate plated meals, buffet-style, cocktail receptions, and family style options. The Propylaeum handles all alcoholic beverage packages, including the staffing of bartenders, and we have options for beer, wine, and liquor bars. While our preferred caterers are the required caterer for all food and beverage needs, dessert can be provided by a 3rd party vendor.
Will my wedding be the only event at the Propylaeum on the day-of?
Yes! We only allow one wedding per day at the Propylaeum in an effort to not only provide you with our full attention, but to allow full access of the property to each wedding. We want you and your guests to feel as if the mansion is your own home while you're with us, and allowing weddings to have exclusive use of our property during their special day is one way we can ensure that.
Can I stay overnight before or after my wedding?
Absolutely, and we encourage wedding parties to consider staying the night before to allow enough time to get settled into the space and feel more comfortable. Our overnight package includes all six bedrooms, early access to begin decorating, and breakfast the next morning. For an overview of the rooms, click here.
