Cedarbrook’s commitment is to provide exceptional service and gracious hospitality. The following information is offered to ensure the fine quality of your event.
For the various Cedarbrook Lodge departments to prepare properly for your successful event(s), a final attendance number must be determined and communicated to your Wedding Coordinator by 12 PM seven business days prior to the event. This number will be considered a guarantee not subject to reduction. Charges will be assessed accordingly. Cedarbrook Lodge will set 5% over the guarantee. Cedarbrook Lodge will not be responsible for identical service to more than 5% over the guarantee.
Menu selections are due a minimum of eight (8) weeks prior to the event; we will gladly accommodate special dietary requests. Please advise if you plan to utilize meal tickets for food or beverage.
Based on a minimum of twenty-five (25) guests, we respectfully request to limit the main course selections to two (2). For smooth service, please accept the responsibility to identify the main course selections at the time of service as well as for providing the count for each main course selection at the time of your guarantee. We will gladly provide you with color-coded meal cards upon request.
