- What is the amount required for a deposit?
The initial deposit is 20% of your subtotal for a wedding ceremony and/or reception at Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel. This is due along with your signed contract before your date is considered “definite”. All deposits are non-refundable.
- What is a "Food and Beverage Minimum"?
This is the minimum you are responsible for spending in Food and Beverage for your wedding reception. It is determined by many factors including ballroom size, date of function, time, etc. This minimum includes all food and beverage charges, prior to service charge and sales tax. If the total food and beverage for your function ends up being less than the expected minimum, the balance to meet this minimum will be charged as a facility fee for use of the ballroom.
- How much is the hotel’s service charge and tax?
Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel's service charge is currently 20%, while the sales tax is currently 8%.
- What is the “guaranteed guest count” and when is it due?
A “guaranteed guest count” is the amount of people you expect to attend your wedding ceremony and/or reception. This is due 3 business days prior to your wedding day by 12:00 pm. For example, if your wedding is on a Saturday, your due date would be the Wednesday before your wedding. Once you have guaranteed a specific number, that number cannot be decreased, but it may be increased (upon approval from your Catering Manager). If a guarantee isn’t given, then the tentative number on the food and beverage contract (BEO) will be considered the guarantee for the event.
- Who provides the wedding coordination?
While wedding coordination services are not provided by the hotel, your Catering Representative will guide you through the planning of your event's details such as menu selection, room setup, etc. On the day of your wedding event, a Banquet Manager will be there to make sure your event flows smoothly. A wedding coordinator can assist you with all your wedding’s fine points, such as vendor selection, décor, creating a wedding day timeline, etc. as well as providing coordination during the rehearsal, wedding ceremony and reception. The day of your wedding, your wedding coordinator will bring together all the individual details to ensure your wedding vision becomes a reality. Should you decide to hire someone to coordinate your special day, please refer to our Suggested Wedding Vendors list for Wedding and Event Planners.
