FAQ About the Wedding at Cinco Farm in Miami

Yes, initially we allowed outside catering, because honestly most venues don’t and we didn’t understand why! It seems like a great benefit to allow outside catering. The truth is, after sometime of allowing any caterer through our door, we realized that not a workable business model if quality food and a quality experience is important to our couples and their guests. Some caterers were amazing, but some were clearly in it for the money and not the couple (like when we asked, do you help with XYZ and the caterer responded “they didn’t pay for that.” Once you get to know us, you’ll know that attitude doesn’t sit well with us.) We had issues with caterers showing up hours late and unprepared. We had caterers run out of food. We had caterers who routinely sent three 16 years old to be the event staff.  Although we had many great experiences with caterers who were new to us, when it was a bad experience it was really bad, for us, the couple, and their guests. We selected the caterers on our list after we thought they had good food, good service, because they had very affordable options along with a variety of upgrades, and honestly because we thought they were nice people. Don’t discount the fact that all of the vendors that you choose you’ll work with a lot leading up to the big day. It’s important to actually like your vendors! If you feel more comfortable having a specific caterer or bar service for your event please request a vendor application ($250 fee for each vendor) so that we can do the prescreening service. The requirements are as follows: Must have business license and insurance (minimum coverage required), if serving alcohol must include liquor liability coverage and bar tender serving license. Only professional kitchen gas equipment is allowed, as electricity at the farm is limited. Caterer and bar service company must have good reputation. This application must be submitted 2 months prior the event to make sure is all approved and that in the worst case is not approved you will have time to hire another vendor.

The house is solely available for the use of “getting ready” and the use of the bathrooms. The house equipment is not available to be used for the catering or any preparation of the event. The catering company will be responsible to bring any necessary equipment to keep the food warm, refrigerated or any kitchen equipment that they might need. Flower arrangements preparation is not allowed inside the house.

We can help you set up all the tables, chairs, linens, dinnerware, cake, cupcakes, gift table, signs, seating chart and all of our borrowed decor.

In case of emergency, vehicles can be left overnight in the front parking area outside the property of our farm in Miami for one day only.

Yes, there is a 10’x20’ tented area for the caterers.

If availability allows pickups can be scheduled on the next day.

You can definitely have a delicious meal and open bar for 150 people for under $5,000 with several of our vendor caterers. Much less for smaller groups or more for top-shelf bar selection. You can always spend more if you have an awesome budget. Please click here to see examples of catering and open bar quotes for 150 people.

Our years of experience have taught us that each role should be played individually so it can be performed in the most satisfactory way on your big day. A wedding coordinator has a lot more duties than the help we can provide you as a venue. The Cinco Farm staff will be onsite throughout the day to help you however they can (extra hands decorating, drive around the farm, take pictures, answer questions from your vendors and direct people as necessary. Their role is to help your event go smoothly and stress-free as possible. Please don’t consider them as a day-of wedding coordinator.

At 11:00 am the day of your event.

No. We even have a lot of ceremony decor you can use for your wedding day like arches, drapes, ceremony foldable chairs, pillars, etc. Since we rent the venue on a daily basis the same venue fee applies if you are planning to do just the ceremony at the farm.

Only Party rental company, caterers and bars vendors, the rest of the vendors can be chosen by you, but we highly recommend working with them as they are well-known vendors and we have seen the level of service they deliver. Besides the fact they are very nice people, they are also very affordable with many options for upgrades. If you choose an outside caterer or vendor, we recommend you to do deep research on company history, reviews, etc. Remember there is not an opportunity to makeover and it’s very important that you love your vendors. All the party rentals supplies must be contracted with EVENTGI party rentals. Click for more info.

Good question! We calculate that including all the usual expenses for a wedding (dress, venue, food, photographer, DJ) the average cost is between $15,000-$18,000. But we have seen creative couples with smaller budget $12,000-$15,000 range hosting beautiful weddings. And we also have seen a couple spending much more than the average.

We highly recommend scheduling a tour prior to your visit. To request a tour, email us at info@cincofarm.com .

Yes, to reserve the date we require $1,000. Sixty days prior to the event 50% of the balance will be due. And the final payment is due 30 days prior to the event. We do offer flexible payment plans.
