Frequently Asked Questions
What time can I get into the venue on event day?
The 3 Ten will greet you with a smile at 10:00am on the morning of your event. You have full access to the venue up until 12:00am. That doesn’t mean you need to be completely out of the venue at 12:00am but last song needs to wrap up at that time! If you’d like to arrive on site earlier you can rent additional hours at a rate of $175/hour. If you would like to celebrate later than 12:00am you can rent late night hours for $400/hour. The bridal loft and grooms lounge are available during the hours of 10:00am-8:00pm.
Who will be at the venue on the day of my event?
We always have staff on site to be there for you throughout your event! From the time the doors open to the time they close, 3 Ten provides the most professional, experienced staff out there. We do include 1 event staff as part of your rental rate. Additional staff is required per every 100 guests at a rate of $250/staff.
Do you host ceremonies at The 3 Ten?
Yes we do! 95% of our couples get married at the venue. We can customize a layout based on your guest count and vision. Our beautiful interior makes for a gorgeous backdrop when you tie the knot! A ceremony fee of $1,000 includes a full changeover as well as set-up.
So, you say I can select any caterer of my choice right?
Absolutely! We think flexibility and having what you want at your special event is important. But if you need an excellent recommendation we have 3 incredible partners including Absolute, Classic Catering and Green Mill. We highly recommend our partners because we know firsthand that they will do an amazing job for you and your guests! If you do not select one of our partners a $500 outside catering fee is applied.
Can I bring in my own beverages?
Although we try to be as flexible as possible we do require all alcoholic beverages as well as soda and juice be provided by The 3 Ten. We offer customizable bar packages with a wide variety of options including local craft beers, wines and spirits. We have something for everyone! All bar services include 1 bartender. We do require additional staff for every 100 guests. A $1,500 beverage minimum is required for each event and a 2.5% liquor fee and sales tax will apply.
I completely got sucked into Pinterest and now I’m not sure how to make my vision come to life. Do you offer any décor?
Have no fear, Sitting Pretty is here! We know deciding on décor for your perfect event can be overwhelming but Sitting Pretty Décor can help. From café lights to head table backdrops, center pieces to charger plates, ceiling draping to linens, we have it all! If you decide to do your own décor we do require all ceiling draping, café lights and backdrops be provided through Sitting Pretty Décor.
Although I love the movie Wedding Crashers, what happens if someone who was not been invited comes into the venue?
Although Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson would be a blast at your event we want to make sure you are surrounded only by friends and family! We include 1 security guard with the venue rental. If your guest count exceeds 250 a 2nd guard will need to be hired at a rate of $120. The safety of you and your guests is our number one priority!
Are there any hidden fees that will surprise me?
Definitely not! We want to make sure you have all tools you need when making your decision to host your event with The 3 Ten. Keep in mind, a service fee of 18% will apply to venue rental, ceremony fee and hosted bar items. Also, a state tax fee of 7.375% will be applied.
Historic downtown is beautiful but I don’t see a lot of parking spaces. Where should my guests park?
Within 3 blocks of The 3 Ten there are over 400 parking spots! Street parking and surface lots are on every block and are complimentary. We will provide a map of all parking locations near the venue for you and your guests to utilize if you choose. Most of the surface lots are 18 hour parking so cars can be left overnight.
It looks like there is a lot included in the rental rate. Anything else I should know about?
Yes, yes and yes! We have a lot of fun amenities that are included in the venue rental. To name a few, we have 6 hand-crafted wooden harvest tables, 3 vintage whiskey barrel high-top pub tables, 2 - 70” flat screen televisions for slideshows and beautiful wood chiavari chairs. We include up to 250 but additional chairs can be rented for $100 per every 50 guests.
Ok, I am sure this is the perfect venue for me! What is the next step?
