You are allowed to begin decorating at 8am the morning of your event. We also have the option to rent the venue the day before to set up if the date is available. All timeline details are discussed during your planning meetings.
Can we decorate with real candles?
YES! We think candles look beautiful at The Post! The only rule is that they must be contained flames - votives, cylinders, lanterns are all okay as long as the flame is at least 2 inches below the top of the container. Stick candles that could tip and start a table on fire are not accepted! Please know that you’ll just need to pick a few special people to light them for you prior to your event if you haven’t arranged it with another vendor.
Can we bring in our own snacks/late-night snacks?
YES! As long as you choose our caterer for your main meal - a self-serve/maintained snack table is great - anything is possible. Just check with your event manager before arranging it (especially Food Trucks).
