Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advance should we reserve a date for our event?
The general rule is 12-18 months in advance to secure the space and date you want. However, our halls are booked according to availability, so if a hall is open, any party can reserve it. We recommend you book your event space well in advance. We do not save dates without a deposit and signed contract.
Is there a problem with parties intermingling and disturbing one another?
No. Our four event halls are completely independent of one another, including separate parking. Since our opening, we have never experienced an issue with parties from events occurring simultaneously disturbing one another.
In case of inclement weather, can the ceremony be moved inside the reception hall?
Of course! Texas Old Town is expert at both indoor and outdoor weddings. We suggest you have a backup plan for the often-unpredictable Texas weather.
Where will my guests park?
Each reception hall has its own parking lot. With the exception of the bride and groom and handicapped guests, all vehicles should park in the designated parking lot for your venue.
Does Texas Old Town provide chairs, tables, and linens for the reception hall?
We provide chairs and tables for your reception hall, but we do not provide linens. Several of our recommended vendors provide linen services.
Does Texas Old Town have dressing rooms?
Yes. We provide spacious dressing rooms at each venue site.
Do the indoor facilities have air conditioning and heating?
Yes! Air conditioning is a must in Texas.
Are pets allowed?
Pets are not allowed. However, service dogs are the exception.
Does Texas Old Town have overnight accommodations?
No, we do not, but there are hotels just down the road in Kyle, Buda, South Austin, and San Marcos.
May we take engagement or bridal pictures at Texas Old Town prior to our event?
We would be honored to be the backdrop for your engagement or bridal photos. We ask that you schedule your photo shoot with Texas Old Town for Monday through Thursday, so your shoot does not to conflict with any events. Please confirm availability five days prior to your photo shoot.
Can we decorate how we choose?
Of course! This is your special event. However, we do have some limitations: paper confetti, glitter, unprotected candles, silk flower petals, and sand are strictly prohibited. Hay and birdseed are permitted outdoors but not indoors. We ask that you respect the walls and furniture and abstain from use of nails, screws, or staples. You are welcome to use candles that have at least three inches of side glass coverage above the flame.
Can we decorate the event site the day before the event?
As long as the facility is not reserved for that day, you are welcome to come decorate the day before your event. Please verify availability five days prior to your event.
What can be tossed in the air for the bride and groom’s departure?
Bird seed, organic flower petals, wedding wands, and bubbles are permissible options. We prohibit sparklers, paper confetti, rice, and silk flower petals.
Are fireworks allowed?
Fireworks are not permitted due to safety risks.
Can alcohol be served at Texas Old Town?
Yes. If a “cash bar” set-up is used for your event, you must contract a firm that has a license to sell alcohol, such as a restaurant or full-service catering company. A copy of the vendor’s alcohol license should be supplied to Texas Old Town at least one month prior to your scheduled event. If you plan to have an open bar set-up (meaning alcohol will be free of charge to your guests), Texas Old Town requires that you contract Texas Ritas, an independently contracted TABC bartending firm, to serve the alcohol. All alcohol at open-bar events must be served by the Texas Ritas bartender. BYOB is not permitted at Texas Old Town.
Are we required to use Texas Old Town’s recommended vendors?
No, you can choose your own vendors, with one exception: the bartender for open-bar set-ups. All other vendors recommended by Texas Old Town are preferred but not required. We pride ourselves on offering vendor flexibility to our clients.
