7 Extras You Might Need for Your Private Estate Wedding

You’ve visited a lot of potential wedding venues, and the private estate you’re considering for your Big Day has it all: it’s gorgeous, romantic, and, of course, totally private—truly your dream location! However, while it’s great to get swept away by the beauty of the place, make sure you’re aware of all the extras you’ll need to provide to turn your vision into reality.

Here are some of the additional things a private estate wedding often requires:

  1. Rentals beyond cutlery, china and glassware. You may have to rent just about everything, including tables, chairs, couches, umbrellas, bars, a dance floor—even rugs and posh portable restrooms.
  2. Valet parking or shuttle service for guests, depending on the venue’s accessibility, layout and the owners’ preferences.
  3. Generators to power the entire event or be available as backup. Either way, make sure they’re quiet.
  4. Security guards. You’ll need them to keep out the public, gatecrashers, and the paparazzi. Property owners also require them for protection of their possessions.
  5. Permits. Upscale communities frequently have restrictions on hosting events (where and how many are allowed, noise, parking, etc.) and require permits to help control them.
  6. A tent in case of bad weather.
  7. Insurance. Most private estates require a certificate of property and liability insurance.
