Is there a place for us to have our actual wedding ceremony at the club?
Yes. Many couples choose this option since coordination is much less stressful when activities are in one location, as opposed to multiple venues. The Iris Club’s configuration provides a smooth flow for the entire day, making things easier for both guests and the bridal party.

Do you offer whole and half day rental rates?
Yes. Rates vary according to the day of the week and to the duration of the event.

Is there an area for a bridal party to dress before the wedding or reception?
Yes. We provide a charming Bride’s Room that is a favorite spot for pre-wedding photos of the bride with her family and attendants.

Do you require use of a specific caterer or can I hire the caterer I would like to have?
We offer no catering services and don’t restrict your choice in any way. You are free to choose whichever caterer you prefer. Additionally, you are free to bring your own prepared foods.

Do you provide referrals for the services I will need in order to plan the perfect event?
Yes. Our club manager is very experienced with events of all kinds and is a valuable resource of referrals she’s received from satisfied clients.

Can we bring our own food?
Yes. Aside from being a cost-savings, clients often choose this option to truly customize menus, celebrate valued family traditions, and honor their ethnicity.  Professional equipment, including commercial ovens and refrigerators, is available at no additional charge.

Can we serve alcoholic beverages?
Yes, but the alcohol must be served and, by law, cannot be sold under any circumstances. We do not have a liquor license and do not provide bartender service. The benefit is that we don’t require you to buy a minimum package to offset our costs, so you’re free to offer whatever beverage selection is within your budget.

Do you charge extra for setting up and/or tearing down the tables and/or chairs?
No, our all-inclusive package includes whatever configuration you choose.

Are we required to use Iris Club linens?
No. Most clients have an overall theme and need coordinated products to achieve that vision. All tables must be covered, but the countless, readily available products at local shops and online make it easy for every client to achieve the “perfect” look.

Do you rent place settings for the tables?
Yes. There is a nominal cost for complete or partial settings.

What about parking?
There is plenty of street parking, which is free on week-ends. In addition, there are 55 spots adjacent to the club that can be rented from the city at nominal cost. There is also a large parking garage less than a block away.
