We’ve got answers
Our goal is to provide an outstanding experience for you and your guests. Our policies reflect best practices from years of experience hosting guests and events. Here are responses to some of the most frequently asked questions.
General Venue Questions
We comfortably accommodate up to 300 guests, which also allows adequate space for dining and a dance floor.
We only host one wedding per day to ensure that each couple’s event is special and receives the full attention it deserves.
Yes, we will have venue staff available the day of your event from the time you arrive through the duration of your event. Our event staff will be responsible for venue-specific tasks such as: vendor/ guest questions, bathroom tidying, spills, thermostat needs, emergencies etc. Although, we do not provide busing, décor setup and breakdown, coordination/ planning etc. You will be given a list of Preferred Vendors who are outstanding and can assist with any services or products you may require.
We have ample on-site parking with overflow available on the adjacent property.
Sure thing! Vehicles can be left in the guest parking lot but we ask that they are retrieved by 12pm the following day. We want you and your guests to have fun and be safe!
Furry family members are allowed (with pre-approval) at the ceremony and pictures. We are happy to discuss your pet needs further.
Yes! We are conveniently located 12 miles from Margaritaville Resort on Lake Conroe, 22 miles from Conroe and 30 miles from The Woodlands. Additionally, our area has a selection vacation home rentals as close as 5 miles from our location that can be hand selected and shared with your guests via your wedding website. We can provide you with a list of accommodations in the area.
Because we only host one event per day, our fee structure remains the same regardless of whether you hold your ceremony, reception or both, on-site.
Food, Beverage, and Vendors Questions
To ensure your wedding day is stress free and perfect, we require that at minimum, a professional Day-of Coordinating company is hired.
All alcoholic beverages served or consumed at The Farmhouse must be supplied and served by The Farmhouse’s exclusive beverage vendor, M&M Beverages. For additional questions regarding their packages and services you can email them at:
With the exception of our exclusive alcohol vendor (M&M Beverages), your favorite outside vendors are welcome at our venue! Please be aware that we required that your caterer and florist are properly licensed and insured.
Booking Questions

While walk-ins are welcomed, we kindly request you schedule a tour so we can provide you with the individual service you deserve. You can conveniently schedule your tour online by CLICKING HERE.

To reserve your date you will need to fill out our electronic contract and make your 1st payment. Your 2nd payment will be scheduled 9 months prior to your wedding and the final payment, 6 months prior to your wedding. We accept payments by credit card, debit card, or bank transfer via our provided online invoices, as well as checks or cash.

Sorry, dates are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, upon processing of a signed contract and non-refundable first payment. Over the years, we’ve found that this is the fairest way to accommodate our guests.

We require you purchase a million dollar, general liability insurance policy. Depending on your guest count, we suggest budgeting $100-$200 for this policy. The following companies offer automatic, quick quotes:

Although not required, we highly recommend that you obtain Event Cancellation / Postponement Insurance in case a cancellation is necessary.

Planning Questions
While our private bride group is limited to the actual couple and those listed on the contract, we are always happy to help with their direct questions.

You bet! We include one complimentary hour for you to rehearse. Our rehearsals are scheduled on Thursdays, assuming there is no event taking place that day. However, many of our couples are choosing to rehearse off site or the day of. You are welcome to schedule your rehearsal 90 days prior to your wedding.

We would love for you to schedule your bridals or engagement photo shoot at The Farmhouse. We schedule photo sessions for booked brides only on Mondays and Wednesdays. The added bonus is that you can test run your hair, makeup, and bridal gown.

Unlike many venues, The Farmhouse has an onsite Chapel which accommodates up to 300 guests. You have until 10am the day of your wedding to determine if you’ll proceed with your outdoor ceremony or relocate it to the chapel. We also offer complimentary umbrellas for your guests to use between the The Farmhouse and The Chapel.

A Police Officer is required from the time guests arrive to the time guests leave. They will be arranged for your event through our contracted security agency and they will invoice you directly.

Day-Of Questions
Yes! For a sparkler exit, we suggest you purchase the 30+” version to ensure everyone’s sparklers remain lit longer so your photographer can capture the perfect photo when you exit. We require they be slow burning or ash-free metal sparklers. Guests will be instructed to form 2 lines 12’ feet away from the barn in a designated area specified by our staff. All sparklers must be properly extinguished into a sand bucket provided by the venue.
In consideration of our neighboring fields and animals, we do not allow firecrackers or fireworks.
We invite all of our couples to decorate and make The Farmhouse their own! Any decorations that you add to the space are your or your vendor’s responsibility to install and remove. We have a detailed outline of permissible and prohibited decor in our venue Agreement that can be summed up in three rules: Don’t catch the venue on fire, don’t use anything that could put people in danger, and don’t use anything that could damage the venue or grounds.
Of course not! We want to take this load off of you, so when you arrive, the initial setup of tables and chairs will be done based off the floorplan you provide us 2 weeks prior to your event day.
The use of petals, confetti, rice, seeds, balloons, glitter, fog machines and bubbles is not permitted without Prior Approval from The Farmhouse. We find that the 3M command hooks are the best to use if you wish to hang anything in the venue. If you have any other decorations you want to use and are unsure if they are welcome, please contact us for clarification.

We allow real candles to be used provided they are in an enclosed glass container with a bottom where the glass is taller than the flame unless prior approval from us is given.

Yes, we have designated areas outside for your guests and vendors; however, we are a non-smoking facility inside, including vape and e-cigs. Please make sure all guests are made aware of our designated areas which include our covered porch and gravel area.
We recommend that your DJ provide all of your sound for your ceremony needs.
While the wedding party will have access to the suites through the night, we ask that all items and personal belongings be packed and readied prior to the ceremony for easy departure at the end of the event.

At the end of your event, we simply require that you remove any personal belongings you may have brought in, such as decor, florals, or outside rental items. The Farmhouse is professionally cleaned after every event, allowing all guests to enjoy the highest standards. Caterers are required to leave their areas as they found them.
