Rain backup is a separate rental and is not automatically included. The reception site is often suitable. In the instance of a cancellation due to inclement weather, as determined by both the renting party and the Dow Garden's staff, a refund will be offered with the exception of the initial down payment.
Staff members work hard to provide a cleaned well-maintained area for events. Renting parties must leave any rental spaces as they find it. Those using the grounds are liable for any damage to the site. Please keep in mind that plant conditions and blooms depend largely on Mother Nature.
Photographs may only be taken within the area contracted for the wedding ceremony during the designated rental time. However, you may utilize the rest of the garden for pictures, before or after, for as long as you wish.
