What exactly comes with a wedding package?
Everything you need to get married.... We introduce you to a couple caterers, photographers, dj's, and florist. We send you to the rental company so you may touch the numerous amount of options in fabric and arches. We take care of the china, stemware, flatware and champagne flutes... We give you a great selection of chairs to choose from. We set up your day of planning to aliviate the stress the average wedding causes. Why? So you can work on the details... The necessities that truly matter to your guests and most of the time get forgotten about. Why do they get forgotten about? Because most of us procrastinate and they come last :)
What if I want to use my own Vendors?
We know there are many affordable wedding venues and vendors and it would be our pleasure to work with more of them.... All we ask is they have the proper insurance, a business license and their reviews online are of a positive status to ensure the quality of the mansion in Stokesdale, NC. We will credit you the difference we pay our vendor. We only included them in our packages for ease of access.
Do you allow my dog to come out for photos?
Not only do we allow it but we can help with the arrangements to have them boarded on the same day. After the ceremony, about a mile down the road is a dog kennel. Pick your baby up, get your photos and bring them back till the party is over.
What about out of town guests?
At Bella Collina your guests are treated like royalty. We have negotiated with local hotels to pick them up at the airport. Bring them to their hotel, bring them to the mansion for your wedding. Then after the party is over, they will pick them up and bring them back to their hotel... All of this for $89.99 a night.
