Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is there an additional per person rental charge after the first 100 people?
A: The Red Barn Villa Venue wants to be flexible with their price based on the amount of people at the event. Some venues charge a flat fee whether you have 100 people or 300 people. We don't want you over paying for extra people if you plan on having a small event. The base rate for the first 100 people is what we charge to open the venue, staff the venue, and clean the venue before and after the event.
Q: Do you have preferred vendors.
A: Yes we do! We choose to work with them because we found them to be professional, reliable, easy to communicate with and knowledgeable of our facilities, policies and regulations. Our preferred vendors do not pay a fee to us to be recommended! We highly recommend working with them because we generally love working with them! They always make the communication easy and wedding day stress free for our wonderful brides and grooms.
Q: Why is there an outside vendor expense if we decide on an outside caterer?
A: Our preferred caterers are licensed and certified caterers that know the venues policies, regulations and space layout. We never have to supervise them and they have never let us down. However, you can choose an outside vendor, the $500 expense covers the set up room (oven for warming only, hand wash only sink, refrigerator, and several work tables), one visit to the venue with the outside vendor (up to 1 hour) and the extra effort put into communication, and coordination with an outside vendor.

A: Yes we do! With proof of service, we will give you one free hour! Red Barn Villa is thankful for your service.
