Planning

Wedding Coordinator

The Omni Homestead Resort does not require, but strongly recommends, that you employ an outside professional/certified wedding coordinator to assist with your wedding day. From planning the setup and arrival of vendors to executing the ceremony and timeline of the reception, a wedding coordinator will help make your day seamless and enjoyable. Please ask our staff for a list of preferred vendors.

Catering
Menu prices are not guaranteed until 120 days prior to your event.

A 23 percent service charge is added to all food and beverage functions. 9.3 percent VA State Sales Tax is calculated on the total of all charges. We ask that your menu be finalized at least thirty (30) days in advance of your event. Custom menus should be discussed directly with your catering manager.

Food and Beverage Service
The resort does not allow food and beverage to be brought onto or off the property, whether purchased or catered from outside sources. Your catering manager may make exceptions to this rule in writing via email for items such as a candy station, and other items not provided by The Omni Homestead Resort. Dietary substitutions are available on request. Children’s meals (ages 6-12) are $35++ per child and consist of a fruit cup, chicken fingers and french fries, dessert and beverage. Vendor’s meals are at the chef’s discretion and are available at $45++ per vendor.

The Omni Homestead Resort reserves the right to refuse to serve any alcohol at any resort-catered function to any person without proof of age or to anyone based upon inappropriate behavior during the function or while on resort premises. However, it is the responsibility of the host to ensure that no underage guests drink alcoholic beverages during the function.
