HOW MANY DAYS IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK?

We recommend securing your event with us as early as possible. As we enter the warmer weather, our weekends start to fill up quickly. Note: a 50% non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your date in our calendar - if this deposit is not received within 48 hours of receiving your invoice, your booking will be cancelled, and you will have to submit the booking form all over again to be re-scheduled. We want to give everyone a chance to book with us!

WHAT IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER ON MY PICNIC DATE?

As the weather gets warmer, our calendar starts to fill up quickly. In order to make sure that we are available for your event date, we recommend booking as early as possible.

Parties of 2 guests require at least a 1-week advance notice. Parties of 7 guests and under require at least a 4-week advance notice to be able to best accommodate. Parties over 7 guests must be booked at least 1 month in advance so that we have enough time to source all items and connect with all vendors that may be needed for your event.

Sometimes we are able to accommodate last-minute requests (picnics for two guests only)- simply e-mail us to chat and find out!

WHAT DOES THE DAY OF LOOK LIKE?

DreamyPicnic Team will show up at YOUR chosen location 1 or 2 hours PRIOR to your event start time to set everything up. (Arrival time depends on the nature/size of your event).

If your picnic is outdoors, we will text you a pin of the exact location so you can easily find your picnic 10 minutes prior to your start time. We ask that our clients do not arrive on site more than 10 minutes earlier as you may find our team still setting up which will ruin the element of surprise. (We can stay, greet you and take some pics of you and guests UPON request only).

We will return back on site when your event is over to pack-up. You do not have to wait for our team’s arrival- feel free to head onto your next adventure for the day! Basically, all you have to do is dress up, show up and celebrate! We’ll handle the rest.

WHEN IS PAYMENT DUE?

Here’s how payment works:In order to reserve and secure your preferred date in our calendar, we require the client to submit at least 50% non-refundable deposit.

The remaining 50% is due 7-days prior to your event. If the initial deposit is not submitted to secure your date, somebody else will be able to book us for your same event date and time.

So make sure to lock-in your date with us as soon as possible! If you wish to submit full payment immediately, you will be able to do so when you receive your invoice via email.

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

We require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking to secure your event date + time with us.

If no initial deposit is submitted to secure your date with us, your reservation will be canceled as we want to give everyone a chance to book with us.

Cancellations made at least 5-DAYS prior to your event will receive a 50% refund. DreamyPicnic VA LLC is NOT responsible for refunding the full amount. If your cancellation is made less than 5-DAYS before your event, NO refund will be processed.

By booking with us, you automatically agree to our terms and conditions. If you do not agree with our terms and conditions, please do not book with us.

WHAT IF I AM LATE TO MY PICNIC?

Your booked timeframe begins AND ends at the scheduled time that you selected at booking, regardless of the party’s arrival time.

Our team members will arrive on site right after your reservation time has ended ready to clean up and pack up!
