Chateau Joli has many options available for accommodating up to 300 guests. This is using the space inside the

Main Ballroom. For example, plated dinner versus buffet, how large the dance floor will be, and your

expectations will determine how many you seat comfortably. You will be able to create a floor plan that fits

your vision to see exactly how many you can fit.

We have three requirements regarding vendors:

1. You must use our Bartenders if you are providing alcohol, or you can pick a full-service bar company

2. Security Service through our exclusive vendor

3. Fireworks, dancing on the cloud, and indoor sparks through our preferred vendor

Also, the good news is you can hire Front of the House Servers from us, in case your caterer is not providing

servers. We work with you to determine how many fit the size of your group and the timing you need. Once that

is established, we give you an invoice for those needs. Then once we have all the final details, we can adjust

that as needed. CJ is also able to do other rental items for you and that makes planning and execution so much

easier with fewer vendors involved! We provide a preferred vendor list of those companies we have worked

with for years. They will all be familiar with our rules and policies and will help to ensure a seamless event. If

you choose to bring in a vendor outside of our list, we ask that you get prior approval from our team, and they

must be a legal business with the proper insurance covering their services. We will require a valid Certificate of

Insurance before approving any vendors not on our preferred vendor list.

Yes, you can rent from our sister company www.mayiserveu.com. We can also provide you with additional

rentals through our sister company – just ask. This option makes it so much easier with fewer vendors. There

will be no added delivery fees or night pick-up charges incurred.

We offer many in-house packages. After booking your date, we set up a meeting with you to go over your

vision and work on some details. At that point, we will help you determine items. Along with that, we will show

you our linen, China, glassware, and flatware packages. If you are looking for a stress-free event, then let us

handle so many little details for you!

insurance or purchase wedding day insurance to work onsite. Your planner/coordinator is required to be onsite

shuttle services will be able to safely transport your guests back at the end of the night. This is our suggestion if

you choose to serve alcohol at your event.

All alcohol must be served by CJ bartenders. We also allow you to provide your alcohol or through a vendor.

However, all alcohol must be brought in on the day of the event; and must arrive 3-4 hours before the event so

bartenders can set up and chill necessary items. If you choose to serve alcohol, we have a checklist of items for

you to familiarize yourself with the service rules and ensure that you have everything you need. We do provide

pickup service from Specs Bryant Irvin, Total Wine Hulen Street, or Kings Liquor Camp Bowie

Due to hosting weddings and events Tuesday – Sunday, we cannot guarantee a day before rehearsal.

However, if no wedding is taking place the night before your wedding, you can do a 1 hr walkthrough the

night before (rehearsal may be scheduled 3-4 weeks before your event based on venue availability).

With your CJ rental, you are allowed 12 hours, and you can decide what that looks like. This time includes all

your vendors and personal items to be set up and broken down. We require alcohol service and amplified music

ends at 11:00 PM and the last hour for clean up or vendor pickups. Once you have your timeline put together,

you can determine if you need to add additional hours.

Yes, please check with your venue management team for additional rules and guidelines.

Yes, we have 8 acres at the back of our property that is perfect for a tent! We do not allow stakes into the

ground. CJ will have to approve the location and the details associated with the tent. If tenting is what you

prefer, we will have a meeting with you and your licensed and insured tent rental company representative to go

over the details before you sign the contract with the tent company. Please keep in mind that a tent being put up

and taken down will add extra hours or days to your rental period.

We only provide a house sound system included and will only allow it to be used during the day

for atmosphere music. We have a list of preferred DJs and bands that can provide sound for your

event and highly recommend their services. We also do not include microphones. Any of our

preferred DJs and bands can supply additional mics for your event.

If you select a vendor from our preferred vendor list, you do not have to worry at all. These are the companies

that we have had years of experience with, and they are aware of our policies and rules.


If you select someone outside of our list, the first thing to know is they will have to give CJ a copy of their

Certificate of Insurance and if applicable their license. CJ will have a policies form for all vendors outside of

our preferred list to help you go over each item with them and ensure that they have the items they need and that

they follow the guidelines.
