Yes!  The knowledgeable office staff will be happy to help coordinate all the details for your special day.  You'll work with the staff in the office up until two days before your wedding when you'll finalize all of the details.  Then on the day of your wedding, you will be assigned a Maitre D' who will coordinate everything between you and your vendors to ensure a flawless day.

How long can the entertainment perform?

Entertainment is allowed to perform the entire time of the function.  Farmington Club wishes everyone to be served a hot meal; therefore we do not recommend dancing during dinner.

How many toasts to the Bride and Groom are normally made?

Usually the Best Man is the one person who makes the toast to the newlyweds.  If additional toasts would like to be made, we strongly suggest making them after the first course has been served.  The more your guests would like to say to the couples or about the couples, the later your dinner is served and the less time you have for dancing!
