The final details of your event are to be submitted to the Catering Department at least three weeks prior to your function so that our entire staff may prepare to accommodate your needs.
To ensure the safety of all our guests and comply with local health regulations, neither patrons nor their guests shall be allowed to bring food and beverages into the hotel. Exceptions such as a wedding cake will be discussed with your Catering Manager.
We are at your service to custom design a menu for you and to accommodate your special requests, which will ensure the success of your function.
“Special Moments” Reception for the Bridal Party
After your ceremony and before you greet all of your wedding guests, we encourage you to take a few moments to enjoy your nuptials. This intimate reception, held in the bridal ready room, is provided complimentary to the bride and groom (and bridal party, if desired). Take this opportunity alone to bustle your dress and do any touch-ups, as well as toast your new marriage with champagne and canapés. This reception is also an opportunity to arrange for family photographs.
Deposits and Payments
A deposit of 10% of the food and beverage minimum is required upon receipt of the signed contract. Two additional deposits are required within the year with full prepayment due five days prior to the wedding. All other incremental charges will be settled with a credit card placed on the account.
Rehearsal Dinner and Brunch
Should you wish to have your rehearsal dinner with us, or wish to provide a breakfast or brunch for your out-of-town guests on the morning of their departure, we would be delighted to host these events.
Complimentary Guest Room
The Tampa Waterside Marriott provides you with a complimentary suite or deluxe guest room, based on availability, for the bride and groom for the evening of your wedding.
