Closing Time

All bands or DJ's must finish their last set by 12:00 a.m. The event space must be vacated by 12:30 a.m. Last call will be given on all cocktail services no later than 11:30 p.m. Although the times for closing are set above most of our events at Grand Magnolia run approximately 4-5 hours from start to finish. Grand Magnolia reserves the right to control all functions held on the premises and to discontinue the service of alcoholic beverages at any time, if, in the judgement of management, it would be in the best interest of the Grand Magnolia, the event hosts and guests, to do so.


What if we need to rehearse the day before our wedding in the ballroom?

Due to booking constraints, additional costs will be incurred for booking two nights in a row.  Please see "Costs Associated with the Rental of the Grand Magnolia Ballroom" or contact our Event Specialist for more information.


Do you have any smaller spaces available for my event?

The Grand Magnolia does utilize the dining hall located in the main house for smaller more intimate events.  We can seat approximately 30-40 people in the main house but not all in one space.  We recommend the main house dining hall for corporate meetings, dinner parties, celebratory showers, cocktail events and other smaller functions.  The cost associated with renting the main dining hall is $400 and includes tables, chairs, linens and use of our parlor areas and breakfast room for food service through our in-house caterer. All events in the main house must end at 9:00pm unless otherwise coordinated with your Event Specialist. Please see "Arranging and Reserving a Date" for additional information on booking the main house dining hall.
