Frequently Asked Questions

How do I secure the date for my Wedding?  How much is the deposit and is it refundable?  

In order to secure the date for your wedding a signed contract and deposit is required. The deposit would be $500.00 and is required at contract signing.  This amount is applied to the final balance of the event. The deposit is refundable within seven days of contract signing.

Deposits for other events depends on the contract details. Please contact our office for more information.



What method of payment is acceptable? 

We accept Cash, Check, Visa, Master Card, and American Express.



Will you place the favors and the centerpieces on the guest tables?

This task falls under the category of wedding coordinating. We provide Day of Coordination services for your event for a fee, in which we would be able to place those items for you.

Otherwise, one of the first things we do upon arriving to a venue is place linen on the tables.  This should give the florist, coordinator, family member, etc. ample time to complete this task.



Can a client supply their own linen? 

Yes, clients are allowed to provide their own linen. However, our inclusive competitive pricing is a convenience we offer to our clients. Using our product also allows River City Catering the freedom to meet time constraints and the demands of setting up an event.



Is there an additional fee to cut and serve the cake?

One great thing about our Wedding Packages is that our cake cutting services are at no additional charge! Our only requirement in regards to the cake is that the vendor providing it leaves a box for your cake topper.

If you are customizing your own menu for your Wedding or Event and request cake cutting services then additional staff and serving items would need to be taken into consideration.



Do you have a children’s menu or pricing?

Absolutely! Children ages 3- 11, occupying a place setting, we provide two different options for you. One would be that the children would eat from the buffet at half the price of an adult. The second option being we can offer a specific children friendly menu, in which the cost would be based on selection.



When do you need to know how many guests are attending? 

Final guest count and payment are due 72 hours prior to the day of the event.  At this point in time, this is the number that will be on your invoice and therefore cannot be reduced. If the guest count increases on the day of the event, River City reserves the right to bill the client for any additional guests in attendance.
