Do you offer guest room blocks for weddings?
Yes, we offer special guest room rates for blocks of 10 or room guest rooms, based on availability. Please contact our Sales and Catering team for further information on rates and availability at (972) 869-5572.
Do you offer space for ceremonies?
We are happy to accommodate your ceremony in one of our indoor banquet rooms or our gorgeous outdoor courtyard, located right off the canal of Lake Carolyn. Ceremony rates apply and begin at $1,500+.
Do I need to hire a wedding coordinator if I host my wedding there?
All weddings at Omni Mandalay Hotel must have a professional wedding coordinator to assist you with the planning and details leading up to the wedding day. They will conduct the rehearsal and be on-site on the day of the wedding to coordinate your ceremony. If you do not have a wedding coordinator, we will be happy to recommend a professional wedding consultant.
Is there an area available for photos?
Yes, all public spaces on hotel grounds are open to our brides and grooms who are hosting their wedding or with us by appointment.
Can I hire my own vendors (florist, coordinator, DJ, etc.), or must I select from a preferred vendor list?
We do have a preferred vendor list; however, you are not required to use these vendors. Please note that for vendors with power needs, there may be an additional fee.
Are the items on the menu the only items available?
Our culinary staff would be happy to customize a menu to fit any desired needs for your big day, including ethnic cuisine. Please ask your catering sales manager for more information. Once your reception has been booked with us, we are happy to schedule a private menu tasting for the bride and groom and two additional guests with you Catering Manager and our Executive Chef! At least 2 week notice is required when booking a tasting appointment
Are there any noise restrictions for outdoor events?
Because our hotel is in a residential area, we are considerate of our neighbors (and our resort guests) when it comes to sound overflow. All outdoor events with music and entertainment must be approved by your catering manager prior to the event. In addition, to comply with city ordinance, all outdoor entertainment must conclude by 10:00 p.m. Please consult your catering manager for entertainment options.
When is the final guest count due for the event?
A final guaranteed number of guests is required by noon in writing three business days prior to the function date. If we do not receive a meal guarantee, we will set the total based on the last available written estimate. If attendance falls below the guarantee in either case, the host remains responsible for the guaranteed headcount. If the actual attendance is greater than the guarantee, the master account will be charged for the actual number of attendees.
What decor items are included?
We offer white overlays and white cloth napkins with an underlay choice of black, white, ivory, or gold pebble. With our compliments, standard reception tables, hotel banquet chairs, dance floor, staging, gift table, guest book table, and easels are also offered for your reception. Our wedding receptions also include our votive candle fresh floral centerpiece for each reception table. If you would like a linen, chair, or any other rental item that we do not provide, please speak with your catering manager for referrals or arrangements!
