Reminders

Things to keep in mind when hosting a wedding ceremony at the Peninsula Room at Bowers Harbor Inn:

We are a restaurant and open to the public. In hosting your special day, it is our goal to not only make your day unforgettable, but in making your day special we also strive to make our everyday dining guest’s experience special as well. We do ask that when hosting a ceremony you consider the following:

  • If you would like to reserve the space to hold your rehearsal prior to your event, please arrange this with our events staff (depends on availability)
  • We ask to stay on schedule that is outlined in your planning of your event. Our time restrictions will need to be enforced and ceremonies must conclude according to the times listed by location
  • In order to make your pre-event planning smooth, The Peninsula Room at Bowers Harbor Inn would like to be informed of any floral arrangements, decorations or cakes and be delivered the day of your event. We would also like to know of all arrangements with live musicians or musical equipment
  • We are happy to coordinate vehicle traffic and all property-related matters, but it is beneficial to have a family member, friend or commissioned wedding coordinator on hand
  • Decorating must be done the day of the event and break down of items removed after the event
  • Our wait staff is trained to monitor alcohol consumption and signs of impairment and will act accordingly with you and your guests
  • A $2/plate cake-plating fee will be added to all wedding cake service
  • Our staff is responsible for the coordination of the food and beverage. In order for you event to be executed exactly how you want it, we rely on your coordination to orchestrate the details of the ceremonies or receptions. Please see our list of recommended event professionals
