    Frequently Asked Questions

How does your Wedding Package work?

Our Wedding Package is designed to simplify your wedding planning. Everything you see listed on the first page of the package is included the price per person. You have a choice of two entrees, so final pricing is determined by the price of your two entrees multiplied by your number of guests. It's that simple - we even offer discounts for Friday & Sundays Weddings in specific months.

What is your Deposit policy?

We require a signed contract and a non-refundable deposit of $1,500.00 to reserve your date and the ballroom. Nine months prior to your event, a deposit of 25% of the total balance is due. Four months prior, a deposit of 50% of the total balance is due. Final payment is due 7-10 days prior to the wedding date.

Can we have our Ceremony at La Massaria?

Yes. At La Massaria, you can have your ceremony outside or inside. For outdoor ceremonies, we have a beautifully landscaped stone patio large enough to accommodate over 200 guests. Or if you have a smaller wedding party – we have a second outdoor patio on the upper level with a beautiful partially covered, raised terrace. If you prefer an indoor ceremony, we have two elegant ballrooms to choose from. Both of them equally stylish, as well as accommodating.

Can we come to the facility and sample the food?

Absolutely. After you book your wedding with us, we encourage you to contact our Executive Chef to set up a wedding tasting in our restaurant, the Markley Grille. We recommend having your tasting about four to five months prior to the wedding.

How does the Complimentary Golf Pass Work?

As a wedding gift from Bella Vista Golf Course, we provide a complimentary round of golf for four adults with carts. The golf passes are non-refundable, but are transferrable, so someone else can use them. The complimentary passes will become valid starting the day after your wedding and will expire after one year. They are valid Monday through Thursday only, no exceptions. When you are ready to come and play, you will contact the La Massaria Banquet Office to let us know you would like to use your passes. We will then transfer you to the Pro Shop to assist in making arrangements for your tee time.

Is there a minimum number of adult guests required for a reception at La Massaria?

Minimums are based on the time of year and the day of the week. Please contact an event coordinator for specific requests of lowering our minimums.

Adult Minimums Friday Saturday Sunday
April through October 100 125
November through March 100 125 80

What is the maximum number of guests you can accommodate?

For a served dinner, without a traditional head table, we can accommodate a maximum of 220 guests in our upstairs ballroom. Other types of head tables will affect the maximum number of guests we can accommodate. If you do not need a dance floor, we can set 28 tables of 10 people. Please ask your event coordinator for specific details for larger parties.

Do you provide meals for children?

Yes. You have your choice of one entrée, and you must include it in your final head count. We offer Chicken Fingers, Hamburgers, Cheeseburgers, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Hot Dogs, Pizza and Spaghetti - all served with french fries and apple sauce.

Do you provide meals for photographers and other vendors?

Yes, vendors will have one of our chicken or fish entrees at a special vendor price.

How long does the reception last, and can we extend it?

Our normal Wedding Package includes a five-hour reception with a four and one half-hour open bar. If you wish to extend the reception, you may do so for either one half hour or one full hour.

What can we do for guests arriving earlier than the cocktail hour?

We can either provide a cash bar or a consumption "tab" bar to run an hour before the cocktail reception begins.

Are there any hotels nearby for my out-of-town guests?

Yes, there are several nearby hotels.

What if I don't need or want the included Wedding Cake in the package?

You are not restricted to our bakery only. You can use another bakery to supply the wedding cake of your choice, which will deduct your price per person.

What if I don't need or want the included Floral Centerpieces in the package?

You are not restricted to our Floral centerpieces. You can use another florist to supply the flowers or centerpieces of your choice, which will deduct your price per person.
