Is rehearsal time included?

Yes! Since most of our couples check in to the property the day before their wedding, you are more than welcome to host your rehearsal at any time during your stay. You may also decide to host your rehearsal dinner on the property as well. A lot of our couples enjoy this option, as it allows for more time with their guests.

Is decorating time included?

We allow up to 4 hours advance usage of the property prior to check in, that can be used for decorating.

Are rental chairs and tables included in the property rental?

Yes, a full list of all included rentals can be found on our Rentals page. Additional rental items can be rented through Premiere Events or any rental company of your choosing.

Who sets up the tables and chairs for the ceremony and reception sites?

We do! Our staff will set up the ceremony chairs at your chosen ceremony site and the tables and chairs at your chosen reception site. Yay! You get to spend more time relaxing and less time worrying about wedding details!

Are we required to use certain vendors?

Though we have a number of amazing vendors that know our property well and that we’d love to refer to you, you are more than welcome to choose all of your own vendors.

What about the bar? Can we bring our own alcohol?

Yes, you are absolutely welcome to bring your own alcohol. Hideout on The Horseshoe does not charge a corkage fee or any other fees related to the bar service. For safety, we would like you to use a TABC licensed bartender for your reception.

When does the reception need to end?

Since you have exclusive access to the entire property from check in to check out, there is no required “end time”. No need to worry about interfering with other guests, since the only guests on site will be yours. You can party all night long (and into the morning)!

How far in advance should we book the venue?

You can book Hideout on the Horseshoe at any time but our more popular Spring and Fall months book as much as a year or more in advance. It’s best to connect with us as soon as you know you may be interested in booking the property.

Are there other hotels close by for our guests that aren’t staying at the property?

Yes, there are several hotels within 15 minutes of the property. We are also close to the cities of Gruene and New Braunfels, which offer multiple hotel and entertainment options.

Do you allow shuttles on the property?

Absolutely! We have ample parking for property guests but some of our couples choose to shuttle their guests to and from other area locations.

Can we use the property for photo shoots?

Yes! You are welcome to visit the property with your photographer for both your engagement and bridal portraits. Week days are the best option for this and would need to be scheduled with us in advance.

Do you allow sparklers?

Certainly! We allow sparklers as long as we are not in a county wide burn ban.

Is there air conditioning and heat in the pavilion?

We do not have air conditioning in the pavilion, as it is an open air pavilion. Perched atop the hill above the Guadalupe River, we can usually count on a gentle breeze to cool guests. We do have heaters overhead, in the case of too cool temperatures, that keep guests quite toasty.

Do you require a tent?

No, renting a tent is completely up to you. Our covered pavilion can seat up to 100 guests and overflow seating usually is positioned around the pavilion. Most of our couples love the outdoor setting of Hideout on The Horseshoe and choose to rent a tent only in the case of inclement weather.
