How do I reserve The Barn at Grace Hill for my event?
To reserve your date you will need to fill out a contract and make a non-refundable deposit. This can all be done online or in person. We accept payments by credit card, debit card, check or money order. Payments can be done on the phone, online, or send in the mail.
Do I need to schedule a tour or can I just stop by?
Tours are by appointment only. We would love to show you the barn and discuss the details of your event. To schedule a tour call or message Amanda at 316.804.8105. You can also schedule a tour by filling out the contact form here.
How many hours do I get for my reception?
You will get use of The Barn for a 13 hour time block. This includes time for set-up, take-down, and your event.
Can I use any vendors I like?
Yes, you are able to bring in any vendor you would like. They do need to be approved by our staff and the caterer and bartenders must be licensed and insured.
What is your alcohol policy?
If you are wanting to serve alcohol at your event you must hire a licensed and insured company. We do allow you to bring in your own alcohol but again it must served by a licensed and insured company. Your vendor of choice must be approved by our staff. For all events serving alcohol a security fee will be assessed and we will hire security personnel.
Can I come early to decorate?
You are allowed access to the barn when your contracted time starts. When your time block starts, we will have set your tables and chairs so the room will be ready for you. If you need to be in the day before for any reason, you will need to do the 2 day or full weekend rental, or wait until 90 days before and purchase additional hours for the day before. Please plan accordingly.
Will The Barn staff help set-up my decor?
We feel it would not be appropriate for our staff to set-up personal items for your event. Only you know exactly how you want everything to look and we don't want to get in the way of that.
What is the building capacity?
300 guests including the bridal party
Are there any lodging options close by?
Yes. Newton has several options that are extremely easy to access off the Interstate and from the venue. The Holiday Inn Express and Suites will give you a discounted rate on a block of rooms.
Do you only have round tables?
No. We have enough 72” round tables to hold 300 guests, but we also have 8 ft. rectangle tables and a few additional sizes too to give your other layout options for smaller guests counts.
Do you provide linens, tableware, etc. ?
No. You will need to bring in your own linens, tableware, etc. We can help point you towards some awesome vendors to rent from.
Am I able to have my rehearsal there?
We include one free hour for you to rehearse, but we cannot guarantee this to be the night before. It will be scheduled based on availability of our other events. If we have another rental the day before yours, you are welcome to schedule your free hour on another day of the week, or many of our couples are choosing to rehearse off site. 30 days before your wedding, if we do not have a rental the day before, you are then welcome to schedule your rehearsal time slot. The best way to guarantee access the day before for the rehearsal and decorating is with the 2-day or full weekend rental.
Do we have to set up our own chairs and tables or take them down?
Of course not! We want to take this load off of you, so when you arrive, the initial setup of tables and chairs will be done. If any transitioning of the room from ceremony to reception is needed, you can choose to use your own manpower or can hire our “flip crew” for an additional fee and they will take care of the transition for you.
