Wedding and Event Requirements
For any group over 25, for your convenience and ease we require the rental of additional restrooms. This element is necessary for larger groups and provides convenience for the guests.
We require, at a minimum, hiring a day of coordinator for weddings and receptions. The venue manager will not be responsible for coordinating any element on the event day relating to rental items, décor, etc. Please ensure someone is available as coordinator to provide this assistance.
A 50% deposit of the event space and signed contract are required to guarantee your event space for the specified date. It is fully refundable up to 30 days from the signing date.
A $500 security/damage deposit must be paid separately no later than 4 weeks prior to the scheduled event.
Regatta Inn requires a venue manager to ensure the day of activities run smoothly and that rules are respected by all guests present. He/she will be present during the entirety of the event.
Unless otherwise arranged for next day pick-up, all rental items and decor must be cleaned up at the conclusion of the event. All trash must be cleaned up at the conclusion, no exceptions. *We cannot store rental items due to limited space, unless a prior arrangement has already been made.
We do not offer catering. We allow outside catering, but the caterer must be able to work with our property. We do not have a kitchen or ice machine on property. They need to provide bussing service throughout the event as well.
Folly Beach has an outdoor noise ordinance – all lights must be out and music concluded by 10:00 p.m. We abide strictly by this rule and expect all guests to adhere to it. Attendees who are not guests at the inn MUST leave the property by 10:00pm. We ask that the wedding party make all guests aware of this and ensure they abide by this requirement. If not, possible fees may result.
The Regatta Inn does not possess a liquor license and therefore alcoholic beverages must be provided complimentary. Bartenders are required to have undergone T.I.P.S. or other responsible alcohol service training and will need to provide proof of this on the day of the event. Alcohol will not be provided by the Inn and must be arranged separately. The Lessee will be required to obtain a Special Event insurance policy to include General Liability and Liquor Liability. The Regatta Inn needs to be listed as an 'Additional Insured' on this policy.
