Beverage & Food
For Plated Dinner entrée selections, the client will provide a specific count with the banquet attendance guarantee and a guest list with each name and entrée choice indicated (and table number, if desired) no later than 1 week prior to the event. Menu prices are subject to change, but will be confirmed 90 days prior to your event. No food or beverage of any kind is permitted to be brought in to The Lodge at Sonoma by the client or any of the client’s guests or invitees. The Lodge at Sonoma prohibits removal of any banquet food or beverages from the premises by the client’s guests or invitees.
Meals for children younger than twelve years of age are available upon request, $25.00 plus 23% service charge plus 8.75% sales tax per child. Includes a one course child’s entrée, served at the beginning of the first course or child can eat from the buffet.
A wonderful advantage to hosting your wedding at The Lodge at Sonoma is that your guests will have the convenience of staying right here at the resort. Because you are having your wedding with us, we can offer you and your guests a significant discount for rooms throughout the wedding weekend. From April – November, we do require that guests stay a minimum of two nights. For your convenience, once our contract agreement is finalized, we will send you a reservation link along with our toll free reservation line to share with your guests. This will allow your guests to make their own reservations with us at their convenience.
10 Rooms per Night
We will reserve and hold these rooms for you until 30 days prior to the event, with no financial obligation to you for the room commitment. Thirty days prior to your event date, we will automatically release any unreserved rooms, again with no further financial obligation to you. If all of the rooms are reserved and additional rooms are required, we can reserve them for you based upon our availability with a simple addendum to the contract. These additional rooms will require you to be responsible for 90% of the total number of rooms in your Guest Room Commitment.
More than 10 Rooms per Night
If you would like to reserve more than 10 rooms per night, you will be financially responsible for up to 90% of the rooms should they not be reserved by your guests*. The room block process is the same as outlined above. Once your rooms are released at 30 days prior to your event, the hotel will make every effort to resell the rooms. If we are successful in reselling the rooms, you will be released from any financial responsibility.
*Example: 15 rooms on hold for 2 nights = 30 room nights. 90% of 30 room nights = 27 room nights.
If your guests reserve only 25 of the 27 room nights, you will be charged for 2 room nights.
All vendors that are not on the recommended list must present a certificate of insurance for a minimum of $1,000,000 liability, naming The Lodge at Sonoma as additionally insured thirty days prior to the event. If you would like to provide a meal for your wedding vendors, we offer a single course hot entrée (the same entrée provided to your guests) for a reduced $35.00 plus 23% service charge plus 8.75% sales tax. If a buffet, your vendors may pass through the buffet for this price.
Should you have any gift bags or amenity bags for your guests that will be staying with us, we would be delighted to assist you with coordinating the delivery of your gifts. There will be a $4.00 charge per room for this service.
Outdoor acoustic music is allowed in specified areas of the resort and must end by 9:00 p.m. Musical entertainment indoors may be amplified in specified areas of the resort and must end by 11:00 p.m. (10:00 p.m. for Blue Oak, Magnolia or Palm Tree Salons). The Lodge at Sonoma reserves the right to approve musical entertainment prior to your event and to discontinue any music that disturbs our other guests.
The Wedding Weekend
The ceremony and reception are just the beginning. Let the romance continue. Imagine a gorgeous Honeymoon Suite with champagne, chocolate‐covered strawberries and breakfast in bed. Choose from our romantic honeymoon packages, available at more than 150 hotels and resorts worldwide, for a unique destination wedding.
A wedding is a magical moment… It shouldn’t just begin and end with the “I Do’s.” The Lodge at Sonoma would love to be a part of creating your entire wedding weekend. We are happy to work with you to plan every moment from your arrival in Sonoma until the time you leave… Rehearsal Dinner, Welcome Reception, After-Glow Party, Farewell Brunch, and so much more!
Enhance the weekend by treating your wedding party to a mani/pedi while sipping champagne in a private outdoor cabana. Or tour your guests around Wine Country and experience together all that Sonoma County viniculture has to offer. Our professional Wedding Planners will help you make this a wedding weekend that your friends and family will be talking about for years to come.
A Rehearsal Dinner is a time for the Bride and Groom to share this joyous event with the ones closest to them. It’s a time for the couple to more intimately express their love and gratitude to those participating in the big day. This dinner should be special, fun and a reflection of the happy couple.
A Welcome Reception is a new trend that is becoming very popular for Destination Weddings. Because your guests are traveling for your special day, why not get them together the night before the wedding to meet, catch up or mingle? Most couples are inviting the entire guest list to these types of events. Some host dinner for everyone and others host after‐dinner drinks, small bites and desserts. This is also a great way to give the bride and groom an additional chance to connect with family and friends.
An After‐Glow Party is another new trend that we are seeing. Many couples want the celebrating to continue after the reception, so they plan an after‐party in one of our on‐site bars with food and drinks to keep the party going.
After a wonderful evening of celebrating with friends and family, a Farewell Brunch is a great way to gather your guests the next morning to say your “thank you’s” and “good‐bye’s.”
Raindance Spa offers its guests a transformative experience that washes away stress and refreshes the soul. Our treatments draw upon the natural healing properties of the region’s herbs, plants, minerals and fruits, including lavender and grape seed. From facials that purify the skin to pedicures that soothe your soles, to body scrubs and massages, your experience at Raindance Spa will have the effect of a long‐awaited rainfall – you will emerge nourished, radiant, fresh and vital.
Raindance Spa pedicures and manicures are the perfect way to pamper your bridesmaids. Treat them to a day at the spa before they do you the honor of standing next to you while you say “I do.” Relax in one of our private cabanas with champagne and strawberries or order lunch to be hand‐delivered to you. Raindance Spa also provides make-up application with True Mineral make-up, an amazing line of product that protects, smoothes, brightens and calms the skin.
Your Catering Manager is happy to discuss further menu, pricing and venue options.
