Location and Accommodations: The Center is also quite close to a number of hotels that could serve to accommodate out of town guests who will be coming to your wedding.
Reserving a Date
Morris Center employs a tentative hold period of seven (7) days. That is, you can hold a given date for that period, within which you must sign a contract and pay a non-refundable deposit so that the date is confirmed. Otherwise, the date will be once more made available to the public.
Once confirmed, the deposit made is non-refundable. However, the money will be held in the client’s account for as long as eighteen (18) months, during which the amount can be used for rescheduling or planning a new event.
Rental rates greatly vary depending on the day, time, and season that the event is held. Either way, interested parties must pay at least half of the total rent or $500, whichever is higher, within the 7-day period. These rates cover the event time as well as the setup and move-out times.
While Morris Center does not require the use of their preferred vendors, the client must inform the establishment of outside vendors who will be part of the event. Alcohol, however, must be handled and served only by the venue’s staff.
