The risk of having an outdoor wedding is the unpredictability of the weather here in Nebraska. Gardens on Q does not offer any refunds for a wedding that is cancelled because of the weather. We do, however, have a 40ft x 60ft building that we can quickly convert into a functional location for a ceremony. It is not ideal, but will work to keep guests safe and dry in an emergency. The shop has a metal roof, so it is loud inside the building when it is raining or hailing. Another option if it appears that there may be rain on the day of your event is renting a party tent to give your guests a dry place for the reception. Quality Event Rentals in Riverdale, NE is a great option!
Absolutely. Gardens on Q has a quaint, unique bar area that can be used during events. Your alcohol provider is required to be licensed to serve alcohol in the state of NE. There is a list of alcohol providers on our website.
Portable restrooms are provided for guests. Because of the limited septic system capacity at Gardens on Q, only the bride, groom and bridal party are allowed to use the indoor restroom facilities at Gardens on Q. All other guests must use the clean, well-lit outdoor facilities. A fee will be deducted from the security deposit if there is a violation of this policy.
