Frequently Asked Questions
I want to come and view the property and wedding sites. Do I need to make an appointment? How do I schedule an appointment?
An appointment is required to ensure that you are able to gain access to the property and to meet with a Catering Sales Manager to discuss all the details necessary to make your special day run flawlessly.
Please call us at 800-211-9804 to arrange a meeting. Appointments are taken Tuesday through Saturday and are on a first-come, first-served basis.
We are also looking to host a rehearsal dinner and/or post-wedding brunch. Can you handle these? If so, where?
We have many different venues that can accommodate your wedding events. The size of your party will help to determine which locations would be the best fit. Once you have determined your wedding reception location, a Catering Sales Manager will be able to assist you in finding the perfect locations for all your other events. Learn about our venues.
What ceremony locations do you have? If I choose to have an outdoor ceremony, what happens if it rains the day of the wedding? Can I just host my ceremony at Biltmore?
Each of our ceremony locations has a corresponding reception location. We reserve inclement weather plans for all outdoor ceremony locations.
In most cases, Biltmore requires that both the ceremony and reception or the reception only be held on property. We do have the ability to host a ceremony only at The Inn on Biltmore Estate. Please speak to a Catering Sales Manager about pricing and availability.
How long do we have the reception room?
Afternoon events must be completed by 4 p.m. Evening events start after 6 p.m. All timing is based upon your specific event.
How do I reserve a date?
To begin, you must first contact us with a location and date in mind. From that point, the Catering Sales Manager will send a Catering Sales Agreement, which you will have 10 days to sign and return with your initial deposit.
If I am out of state and worried about planning long distance, are you able to help me?
Absolutely; the majority of the weddings we host are destination weddings! Our Catering Sales Managers will work with you through email, phone conversations, and mail to make sure that all the details are covered.
I have a specific theme that I would like to implement. Can I customize my own wedding event?
Our Catering Sales Managers can work with you to ensure that your wedding is customized to reflect your specific vision.
Do I have to use your vendors or can I bring in my own?
We have a recommended vendor list, but you are welcome to utilize vendors of your choice. We strongly recommend using vendors that are familiar with all Biltmore policies and locations. Your Catering Sales Manager can elaborate.
I have a lot of out-of-town guests. What is available on property to keep them busy?
Biltmore offers a variety of activities for your guests to enjoy—tours of Biltmore House, specialty wine experiences, outdoor activities, spa services, and beyond.Learn more.
Do my guests need a ticket to get on property the day of my event? If I want to visit after booking my event, how do I get on property?
No, your guests will just need to reference your party name to gain access to the estate.
Please contact your Catering Sales Manager to have your name placed on the Gate List to visit after booking your event.
