My rental company wants to set-up our tent the day before our wedding and breakdown the day after. Is there an additional charge to do this?

The rental of the lawn is for one day. If there is no wedding scheduled the day before your wedding, your rental company may set-up your tent beginning at 3pm (at no additional charge) the day before but must still breakdown the tent by 10am the day following your wedding.

If there is a wedding scheduled the day before or the day after your wedding on the same lawn, your rental company must set-up the day of your wedding after 10am and breakdown the day after your wedding before 10am. If you need additional days, you must pay for additional days. But to ensure that no other events are occurring the day before or the day after, you must pay for those days.

Here is an example:
You have rented the entire property for your wedding day and you have your tent scheduled on the South Lawn for one day (total is $1,000 plus $250 security deposit).

To ensure that your rental company may set-up at 3pm the day before your wedding, you must pay another $500 for the South Lawn.

Otherwise, another event may be scheduled for that day on the South Lawn which would prohibit your rental company from a 3pm set-up.

If you want your rental company to breakdown after 10am on the South Lawn the day after the wedding, you will pay an additional $500.

Wedding Day = $1,250 ($1,000 + $250 security deposit)

South Lawn for the day before the wedding $500

South Lawn for the day after the wedding =

Total = $2,250
