YOUR LIFE - YOUR STYLE

Frequent questions – Straight answers

We would love to see The BRIX in person. When can we come in for a tour?

That's great, we offer tours by appointment.  

And easy.  When you contact us, we will send you a link so you can self schedule a tour.

 

Can we hold a date for a couple days?

We allow a short hold on any available date after a tour.

Where is The Industria?

In the same building as our flagship Two-Sixty venue.  It has all the features of The Two-Sixty, such as the windows, doors, brick, the lighting and sound, coat room, large catering area, plus bridal suite, just in a bit smaller space.  The ceiling is different, so the Industria has a more industrial modern feel.

Separate? Really?

Yes, they are entirely separate venues.  The venues only share the large parking areas, which will be ample.

I am ready. How do I secure my date?

A 50% deposit and a signed agreement is all you need to secure your date. The remaining balance is due 90 days prior to your event.

What is your rental period?

12 hours.

If you need more time, just ask and you can come in early.  No charge of course.

 

 

How does your all-in-one pricing work for small weddings?

For Saturday celebrations, The Industria and Two-Sixty are optimally priced for larger events.  If you are planning a smaller wedding, consider The Industria for a Friday, Sunday or weekday.

How does The BRIX manage costs?

“Your Life. Your Style” also means, “Your Budget.” You can find the caterer that fits your budget and style, plus you “buy your own” alcohol at a fraction of the cost of standard “drink packages.”  (Typically $8-$12 per person.)  Add to this a world class sound system, custom reclaimed barn wood tables you won’t want to cover, a fun open air photo booth, and a great catering space to create the celebration of your dreams.

 

Any caterer?  How about a food truck?

Yes!  

This is the inner beauty of The BRIX.  You can hire a full service caterer, and they will bring everything you need with them taking care of every detail.  Or, you can cater in your favorite food and hire great wedding servers and licensed bartenders to serve your guests.  Of course, it's a wedding, so professional servers are needed to keep the party looking great.

How many people can we have?

For the Two-Sixty, we suggest to max your ceremony at 300, but there's room for a few more. The Industria works great for up to 200.

Is there parking at The BRIX?

Yes, lots of parking, plus ample street parking (in case all your friends decide to come in separate cars.)  

Is The BRIX handicap accessible?

Yes!  Every door!

ADA compliant.

Photo Booth included?

Yes, we have an open air photo booth that prints photo strips, plus lets your guests text/email pics.  And we upload all the digital copies to you too.

Does The BRIX include WiFi?

Yes!

How many events take place each day?

Only one per venue!  

Are there any hidden fees?

No, one price for the day. All taxes and fees included in the price.

Can we bring in our own decorations?

Absolutely! Your Life, Your Style!

If we are having our ceremony at The BRIX, is there a time we can rehearse?

If no one else is using the space, yes. $250 for up to two hours.

Do you have a list of vendors to help me get started?

Yes, we have a list of local caterers, hotel, hair/makeup stylists, photographers, DJs, florists, coordinators, etc., that we would be happy to share with you when you visit.   And some of these have BRIX special pricing.

Do we have to use the vendors on your list?

No.

Your Life. Your Style. Of course, vendors need to be licensed and insured.

The only "preferred" vendor is the one you choose.

It's a wedding, so you will want to hire (and we require) a great serving staff for your friends and family.

 

BYOB, really?

Even easier.   One phone call to Prestige, and your alcohol is delivered to the BRIX.  And at the end of your celebration, they come by and credit you back for what you don't use.   Retail pricing, and you get to choose the quality!  Of course, service is by licensed servers, typically provided by your caterer or bartending service. 

 

 

Does The BRIX have a sound system?

Yes! We have a world class sound system set up for the ceremony and dancing. Your DJ plugs right in.   Videographers love it as they can connect for direct sound as well. 

Four wireless and  four wired mics.  And DJ lights and down lights included too.
