Events at Marianmade Farm FAQ:
May we host a welcome party before our wedding day? Yes! Your rental of our farm offers you access from Thursday – Sunday and we’ve had couples host lobster bakes and welcome dinners on our lawn or in the barn prior to their wedding day.
How many guests may I have at my wedding?
Our barn and outdoor ceremony site comfortably seat 140 people, but with tenting we are able to host weddings of 200+ people, with prior approval.
Is there parking on-site? Yes, we offer parking for up to 50 vehicles. However couples are required to hire a professional transportation / trolley service for the safety of your guests committing from their point of lodging. This also keeps cars out of the fields keeping the natural integrity of the farm unobstructed.
Will we have to bring portable toilets for our guests?
No, our barn was built with weddings in mind. Your guests will have access to two bathrooms at the barn site. The changing cottage next to the barn has a private bathroom reserved for the bridal party. Should your wedding guest count near 140 people, you will be asked to rent an additional portable toilet to accommodate guests.
Will I need to rent tables and chairs for my reception in the barn?
We are happy to provide our handcrafted wood and iron tables for your guests. Our tables seat 140 people. Please peek at our gallery of wedding images for views of these tables. Because chair choices are so varied based on wedding style, we do require you rent your own chairs. We are happy to provide a list of rental companies familiar with our farm.
