Payments for the “Ruby” package (including all add-ons) are NON-REFUNDABLE and are due at the time of the invoice. To reserve your date and time for our “Emerald” or “Diamond” packages, there is a NON-REFUNDABLE security deposit of 50% of your selected package (including all add-ons) that will be due at the time of the invoice. The NON-REFUNDABLE security deposit is a part of the package price, and is not an additional charge. A REFUNDABLE damage deposit charge of $75 will be added to the “Emerald” or “Diamond” package. The damage deposit will be refunded if no damages occurred during your time at Diamond Wedding Chapel. The NON-REFUNDABLE final payment will be due 28 days before your ceremony.

We do not offer traditional receptions sit down reception. We are primarily a wedding ceremony venue. We specialize in keeping the cost down for couples, without sacrificing the full wedding experience. We offer a mini-reception that consist of a "standing room mixer" environment with a dessert bar, a toasting and cake cutting table, and music.

If you still prefer a sit down reception, DWC recommends utilizing local restaurants in the area to avoid spending additional funds. Still celebrate and socialize with love ones without the expense of a traditional reception.
