Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

How do I find out if my date is available?

Because our wedding calendar changes daily, the best way to check date availability is to call  817-594-4200 or text message to 682 333 4093.

What are your  hours for tours?

We can usually schedule your tour any day of the week or in the evening, as long as we do not have an event already scheduled. An appointment assures that we will give undivided attention to our potential brides and grooms, and answer any questions they might have while touring with us. So we ask that you please call or text 682-333-4093 and schedule an appointment for your tour.

What is the seating capacity of the chapel auditorium  ?

The auditorium seats 125 people in the pews. 

What is the down payment to book my wedding? 

We require a partial payment, of at least 1/4 of the total amount of your contract. The  entire remaining amount must be paid at least 30 days before the wedding.   For your convenience, we accept credit cards, debit cards, personal checks, or cash.  if your wedding is less than 30 days away on the day you book your wedding, full payment is required at the time you book the wedding.

What is the total amount of time I get at the chapel for my wedding and for getting ready?

        See Home page for standard occupancy times, and the amount of charges for additional hours of time.

                  From years of experience, we find that these standard  occupancy times are usually adequate for each of these events. But if more time is desired, and as long as another conflicting event is not scheduled, you can pay an extra fee and rent additional time. (See our price list)

Do you have vendors you can recommend for my wedding preparation and wedding day?

We do not have a preferred vendors list.There are many fine individuals and companies in the immediate Weatherford area who provide a variety of wedding services. All are welcome at our chapel, as long as they agree to abide by our guidelines, and complete their work within the occupancy time you have paid for. Just google the particular service you are looking for, specifying "Weatherford" and you will find an adequate number of individuals to choose from.

 

 Do you have a sound system?

No, there is not a sound system on the premises.  Acoustics in the auditorium and reception hall are excellent.  Even a small music player will fill the room with sound.  Generally, people do not seem to need a microphone in the auditrium because of the excellent acoustics.

Is alcohol allowed? 

We are sorry, but due to the liability involved, we cannot allow alcohol on the premises. 

 

When should I get my marriage license?

You must obtain you Texas Marriage License at the County Clerk's office no earlier than 90 days before your wedding and no later than 72 hours before your wedding ceremony. You can get your license in any county in the state of Texas. Most counties require green cash and the usual price is $82. Both parties must be present to get the marriage license and you must  have your driver's license ID with you. You must bring the marriage license with you to the chapel on your wedding day.  

Is rehearsal time included in the package price?

For our 50-person (or larger) wedding packages, a one-hour rehearsal is included in the price.  This is done no more than 3 days before the wedding.  If the day before the wedding is available, that is the choice for most couples.  For our Sweet & Simple wedding packages (12 or fewer guests)  rehearsal is done as a walk-thru immediately before the wedding. 

What times are available for rehearsals? 

Rehearsal time is always scheduled by the building manager.   Sometimes the night before the wedding is available, but not always . Available rehearsal times will be assigned by the manager.  It is always  first-come, first-serve on rehearsal time slots    For a very small wedding (12 or fewer guests)  you can plan on a brief walk-thru before getting dressed on wedding day. 

What time can I start my wedding?

It depends on the package you have selected. If you are having a wedding-only, then the start times for weddings can be 10 AM, 2 PM or 6 PM.   If you are having a wedding-reception, you can start the wedding  any time you wish during the day.,   

How much time do we get for the wedding, dressing rooms, and after- wedding photography?

 When you book your wedding, you will be assigned a beginning and ending time for your occupancy.  The standard occupancy time is 3 hours. (For Sweet and Simple weddings, see the price list for the time allowed)  Within the paid-for occupancy time, you can spend as much time as you want in the dressing room, and start the wedding when you want.  However, keep in mind that photography and your exit should be completed within your paid-for time.  As always, you do not have to do any cleaning of the facility.  The staff will take care of that after you leave.  

Does Brownstone provide a wedding coordinator?

When you book a wedding package at Brownstone your price is for the use of the facility only.  However, there is always at least one building/security manager on duty during your event.That person is always friendly and helpful and can answer almost any question or concern you might have. We will do our best to make sure all details about the rehearsal and ceremony go smoothly.   The reason we do the ceremony coordinating is because it helps to reduce the stress on the couple  and the families. For the reception, you should appoint or hire someone to coordinate the vendors and the activities during the reception.  You should also make sure that your coordinator has read and agrees to  our reception guidelines. That way, there will be no surprises on wedding day.  For more details or for a copy of the reception guidelines, please call 682-333-4093.

Does Brownstone provide the minister for my ceremony?

You must provide your own officiant.  Any religious or civil ceremony by someone authorized to perform ceremonies in Texas is acceptable, as long as your officiant agrees to abide by our general chapel guidelines.  If you do not have an officiant, we can book  an available minister at an extra charge. (See our price list)

 What are your rules regarding decorations in the auditorium?

Our standard ivory & white décor is provided free of charge. Standard decor helps save our couples money because they do not have to decorate an entire room at their own expense. We do not allow any changes to or removal of our decor.  . You may not move furniture or bring in furniture or other large items. You may re-decorate the registration table if you wish, keeping in mind that all decorative flowers in the auditorium must be silk. (Refer also to the guidelines)

Do you have Christmas decorations in the chapel auditorium during December?

Yes, we have a stunning lighted Christmas tree and other enhancements added to the existing décor. All in "neutral" ivory, white, silver and gold. Our Christmas couples LOVE our fully decorated Chapel Auditorium for their weddings!

Can we have an aisle runner in the chapel?

Due to the tripping hazard, we cannot allow an aisle runner.
