Do you require that we use vendors from an approved list or can we bring our own?
We have requirements for Catering, Bartenders, Rentals, and Lighting Companies. You can find this list of Approved Vendors on the last two pages of our contract. We do not require use of a particular vendor for wedding coordinators, cake bakers, photographers, and florists so those may be chosen on your own. For florals, please note that Camp Lucy has an amazing on-site studio and floral design staff. For more information, visit our Florals page.
We have a list of Approved Caterers from which you can choose that offer a wide variety of menu options and pricing. All rentals go through Whim Event Rentals, which offers the same selections as other rental vendors but with a reduced delivery fee.
I'm a wedding industry vendor, how do I get on your preferred vendor list?
It is common for our clients to ask for suggestions for wedding professionals. Please submit your information with a list of reviews and referrals. We would be happy to recommend your services if your company is a good fit for our clients.
Is there adequate outdoor lighting or can we add string lights, etc.?
Our lighting was carefully selected and is completely adequate inside the Chapel, Pavilion, and Events Hall. If you are interested in having your event on the Great Lawn or Brick Pavered Patio, additional lighting is recommended. If you would like to add additional lighting you must do so through a lighting professional from our Approved list of vendors.
Can we use sparklers for our departure?
Our contract prohibits the use of sparklers and other fireworks because burn bans are quite common in Hays County. If we are not in a burn ban, you may obtain permission from our Site Director to have sparklers.
Can we bring in our own alcohol?
Yes you can, but it must be served by a certified TABC bartender. The TABC bartender is also required to carry liquor liability insurance in the amount of $1 million and there are other insurance related requirements he must meet. Therefore, we require that you select a bartender from our Approved Vendors list.
Can our Band/DJ play music outside during the cocktail hour?
All outdoor music following the ceremony must be acoustic only. Amplified music is permitted in the Events Hall only.
Can we place a wedding sign on Hwy 290/Creek Road to help our guests find Camp Lucy?
Dripping Springs has a sign ordinance that prohibits the use of directional signs
What are the rules regarding decorations?
You can bring in your own decor, but it can only be installed in a way that will not damage our facility -- no staples, tacks, tape, glue guns or nails can be used.
What are we responsible for regarding clean-up at the end of our event?
The caterer and bartenders are responsible for bussing tables, removing trash, cleaning up spills on the floor and the kitchen. All trash must be deposited in our on-site dumpster. The client is responsible for removing all personal belongings, trash in the Bride's Cottage and Groom's Quarters, and leaving the facility in good condition.
What does the facility fee include?
Included in our facility fee is a 2-hour engagement photo session, and 10 hour use of the venue facilities starting at 3pm and ending by 1 am on our site.
Does the 10-hour block of time include set-up and clean-up?
Yes it does. If you need additional time for clean-up or extra time for your band to break down after the wedding you can purchase one hour increments at $100 per hour.
Where are accommodations near Camp Lucy?
The Sleep Inn and various Bed & Breakfasts in Dripping Springs, Blanco Luxury Suites in Blanco, Junipers Hills Farm, and various Inns/Bed & Breakfasts in Wimberley.
Will I be able to have my rehearsal at Camp Lucy the evening before my wedding?
Due to our full events calendar, most couples choose to rehearse on the day of their wedding, which is part of the 10 hour rental time, or offsite during their rehearsal dinner.
Are there any other associated fees attached with renting at Camp Lucy?
In addition to the rental fee, Camp Lucy requires a $1,000 security fee when you book. This $1,000 isn't part of the rental fee. We also require security personnel at each event that costs $200, a $250 kitchen rental fee if your caterer wants to use our on-site kitchen area, and we require the client to have day-of event liability insurance. This insurance costs approximately $150. If you have over 110 cars, we also require a parking attendant at $25 per hour to assist in the management of overflow parking.
