Q. How do I book an event at Cajun Lake Lodge?
A. We suggest that you come to visit us, take a tour, and discuss your special needs so that we may tailor our services to fit you. We are open by appointment only, and so please contact us online about your outdoor wedding or event or call 615-499-2394. We would love to meet you! A deposit then holds your date.
Q. What will it cost?
A. We offer 3 outdoor wedding packages and various other event packages, depending primarily on the number of guests and your particular needs. All very competitively priced. Read more about the package and pricing details for outdoor weddings and events.
Q. How many people can you handle for outdoor weddings or other events?
A. We can handle any number of guests up to 150. For your guests up to 50, our Lodge can easily house your party and it is open year-round. For guests over 50 up to 150, our outdoor Bon Ton Pavilion is the best choice. It has garage-door sides and sits up on a hill, so breezes are plentiful for your parties or receptions in the Spring, Summer, or Fall. Please check out our Wedding Gallery and Event Gallery to get an introduction to our property and facilities.
Q. If I am getting married at Cajun Lake, where is the ceremony held? How about the reception?
A. You have your choice of any flat area on the property! We have several sites that have been popular with our couples and we can show you where they are…then you can use your imagination to pick your very own! Most receptions are held in the Bon Ton Pavilion.
Q. What if we only want our reception to be held at Cajun Lake?
A. No problem at all. We host wedding events with and without the ceremony on site.
Q. Is there anywhere for the bridal party to dress?
A. Yes, the Bridesmaids and Bride take over our Lodge for your special day, and the Groomsmen join the Groom in our Cabin. Most couples love this feature, as it provides a rush-free, private area for you to get ready for the big moment. Plus if the bridal couple or a small group of guests want to stay overnight at the Lodge or Cabin, both are available at a discount for wedding clients
Q. What if it rains?
A. We’ve got you covered in our Bon Ton Pavilion – and could have the wedding ceremony there (as well as the reception). For weddings over 100 guests, we recommend that you rent a tent for your ceremony to protect your guests”.
Q. Where do our guests’ park?
A. We provide directed parking right on our grounds.
Q. Can we bring our own alcoholic beverages?
A. Yes, but you will need a certified bartender if you bring hard liquor or if your beer/wine is not self-serve. We can recommend a vendor(s) and coordinate for you.
Q. Do you allow decorating and when do we have to remove our decorations?
A. Yes, you can do your own decorating, beginning the day prior to your event – and you do not have to remove your decorations until the next morning.
Q. Does your Pavilion have electricity and can we have a band(s)?
A. Yes, our Bon Ton Pavilion has as much electricity as you could need and we have had several top-notch bands perform there.
