CHAPEL RULES

    1. NO FOOD OR DRINK IN CHAPEL. THIS INCLUDES ANYTHING FOR CHILDREN.

        If your child is hungry please take your child outside to feed. PLEASE TELL YOUR GUESTS ABOUT THIS RULE.                      Grandmothers may NOT give their young grandchildren "treats" inside of our chapel, unless they want to clean            them off of our floor.  Ceremonies are short and sweet and everyone is generally out within 30-45 minutes.


    2. PLEASE WASH CHILDREN'S HANDS BEFORE ENTERING CHAPEL.

        Sticky hands get on our props and decorations and are difficult to remove. If your child causes damage you will be         asked to either  clean it up or pay a damage fee of $25.

   

    3. CHILDREN MUST BE SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES!!!!

​        Children under the age of 3 must SIT IN AN ADULT'S LAP. Children over the age of 3 must stay in their seat and                   NOT wander around unattended. NO CHILDREN ARE ALLOWED BEHIND THE RECEPTION DESK AND IN THE PROP          AREA. This includes older children. NO - it is NOT okay for your children to climb on top of the chairs, run around the chapel, get  fingerprints on the windows, touch the decorations, touch the pressed flowers on the windows in the chapels, throw flower petals all  over the place and engage in "horseplay" at any time. Small wedding chapels and energetic children do not mix very well. There should  be one adult for each child and children should not sit together. The adults assigned to "supervise" the children should not permit  children to interfere during the ceremony. If children are talking and being disruptive the adult IN CHARGE needs to take child  outside for the remainder of the ceremony. Penguin Park is just 1/2 block away! We have seen too many weddings and elopements ruined because it is difficult for children to sit still. Plan ahead for someone to watch your children either at home or at our chapel. Tell  your guests not to arrive early, especially if they have young children. Waiting is VERY difficult and by the time the ceremony begins  many children are already in "meltdown" mode. As the mother of a special needs child myself I can speak with some authority here.  Plan for success - bring small children in as close to the beginning of the ceremony as possible, make sure they are already well fed, and  leave as soon as possible afterwards so they can enjoy the event without feeling overwhelmed. We want your day to be as Magical as  possible!

       NO RUNNING AT ANY TIME. There are many breakable things in our chapels. If you do not control your child you will be asked  to take the child outside and/or pay for the damage your child causes.


    4. PLEASE TREAT PROPS CAREFULLY & CLEAN UP AFTERWARDS

        We want you to have fun with them and get great photos, but please do not throw bouquets or get wild with any of the props. If you  break something due to irresponsible behavior, you will replace it. After use, please return props to prop shelf where you found them  and clean up afterwards. Chapel "Clean Up" is NOT part of our service. NO BIRD SEED, RICE, CONFETTI OR ANYTHING ELSE  MAY BE THROWN IN PARKING LOT PER OUR PROPERTY MANAGEMENT'S RULES.

 

    5. DISORDERLY CONDUCT will NOT be tolerated.

​        All guests deemed to be disorderly will be asked to leave. DO NOT STAND ON CHAIRS. Showing up for your wedding in an impaired state is not only  disrespectful to us but it reflects poorly on you as a couple and your sincerity for entering into a marriage with full knowledge and  intent. Any resistance will result in police intervention. 


DREXEL HALL

ANY COUPLE ARRIVING MORE THAN 15 MINUTES AFTER THEIR RESERVED APPOINTMENT MAY HAVE TO RESCHEDULE.

Couple may arrive 15 minutes prior to their appointment but their guests should arrive at the designated appointment time.  Our chapels are small and they overheat when too many people are here for extended amounts of time. Thank you.
