Do you have a price list?

How far in advance do I need to place my order?
We recommend making your original reservation as early as possible, as we are very flexible with changes and modifications to your reservation. You are able to finalize your order one week prior to your event, and items that are cancelled within 7 days, will result in a 50% cancellation fee and within 3 days it would be the full 100% cancellation fee.
We recommend that you make your reservation for a wedding or large event at least 10 weeks prior to the event, and earlier is even better.
