Wedding Party excited for the kissing happy couple on their wedding day
  • How many guests can Allegro accommodate?
    We feel that 200 is the best wedding size for a wedding at Allegro. Grace Chapel can seat up to 144 guests with a maximum capacity of 180. Baker Hall can comfortably seat up to 200 guests to allow space for the band/DJ, dance floor, buffet, and cake table. Additional seating can be placed in Driscoll Pavilion and/or the back deck of Baker Hall for larger wedding sizes.
  • What spaces are included in my rental?
    Our Classic and Elite Packages allow exclusive full access to all event spaces.
  • Is Allegro handicap accessible?
    Yes, Baker Hall and Grace Chapel are handicap accessible through the front entrance. Both restrooms are also handicap accessible. In addition, we have 3 designated handicap parking spaces.
  • Are pets allowed at Allegro?
    We love pets and are pet friendly. All of our cottages are equipped with dog bowls and waste bags. We welcome all animals that are legal and safe for our guests. All pets must be under continuous control by their owners or handlers at all times. We kindly ask that all waste is picked up immediately and disposed of properly. Damages or excessive messes caused by pets will result in a $250 cleaning fee.
  • Is there a table/chair setup, breakdown, or final cleaning fee?
    No, we do not charge extra to setup and breakdown tables and chairs. This is part of what sets us apart from a lot of venues. We will take care of all in-house items, including linens that are rented through us and any in-house decor that you rent. There are no final cleaning fees. Your full service caterer will take care of the removal of any trash.
  • What setup does the venue do?
    When you arrive, the tables and chairs will be set and ready for you to decorate! If you choose to rent linens through us, we will have them placed on the tables for you. Your floor plan will be set according to our agreed layout.
  • Can we use real candles indoors?
    Real candles may be used as long as they are enclosed. We highly recommend the use of LED candles.
  • Can we add extra time?
    Of course! We would love to accommodate your needs. Approval of additional time is subject to availability and must be approved 30 days prior to your event. Please inquire about pricing.
  • Can we use sparklers for our exit?
    Sparklers are allowed as long as you provide a bucket of water or a bucket of sand to douse the hot sparklers in after use. Your coordinator will help you facilitate the bucket of water or sand. Please be sure to communicate directly with your coordinator before your event. We find that the use of 36 inch Wedding Sparklers are the best. We kindly ask that no glitter, rice, or fake petals are used. Confetti larger than 2 inches may be used indoors. Bubbles make for an amazing option and we have bubble guns! If this is something you're interested in, please contact us for pricing.
  • Am I required to have wedding/event insurance?
    Yes, wedding/event insurance is a requirement to protect your investment. Please click here for a free quote with Indemn Insurance. Proof of insurance is due within 30 days of your event. Wedding/event insurance is not the same as cancellation insurance. We highly encourage cancellation coverage which can be obtained through Indemn, but it is not required.
  • What if I need to cancel or change my wedding/event date?
    We understand that things happen! Should you need to move your date, you may do so for a one-time fee of $500. If you need to cancel, you will forfeit any payments made to Allegro. Every payment that is made to Allegro is non-refundable.
  • Can I come in before the event/wedding to decorate?
    If you would like to access Allegro earlier than your contracted arrival time please inquire about pricing.
  • Can I leave my things at Allegro after the event/wedding?
    If you would like to pick up your items the following day, and there is not an event scheduled, you may pick up your items at a time agreed upon with management. Please inquire about pricing.
  • Do I need to hire a coordinator?
    Yes, we require you to hire a professional Day of Coordinator. Your coordinator is there to make sure your wedding day goes as planned and to take care of all the details on your big day. He/she will allow you and your family to enjoy your day. We will have an Allegro staff member at the venue the entire day of your event, but they are not day of coordinators. Please inquire about our In-House Coordination.
  • Can my friend or family member coordinate my wedding/event?
    As much as we would love for your family member or friend help you coordinate, you will thank us for not allowing this. Family members or friends cannot coordinate your wedding. We want everyone to enjoy your special day, for this reason, we ask that you use a professional coordinator.
  • Is smoking allowed?
    If you anticipate smokers at your event, please let us know ASAP. We will have a designated smoking area that will be placed for guests that are smokers. The area will be marked and we ask that all guests use the provided ashtrays. There will be a cleaning fee if any butts are found on the property.
  • Are you LBGTQ+ friendly?
    1,000% yes! At Allegro, we believe that Love is Love and firmly stand in support of creating a warm and welcoming environment for the LGBTQ community and all couples looking to exchange their wedding vows at Allegro.
  • Can our guest count change?
    Of course! Final guest counts are not required until 30 days prior to your event.
  • What is the rain plan for outdoor ceremonies?
    We've got you covered - literally! For groups of 180 or fewer guests. Grace Chapel may be used for your ceremony. For groups exceeding 180, Baker Hall may be used and a flip fee will be charged. Please inquire about pricing.
  • Do you have a place for us to get ready before our wedding?
    We do! Dove and Ivy cottages are typically used for our wedding parties to get ready. We include day use of both cottages in our Classic and Elite Packages.
  • Can I host my wedding on Christmas Day?
    We love a festive holiday wedding, but we do not host weddings December 24-26. These dates are reserved for our staff to spend time with their loved ones celebrating religious and family traditions.
  • Can I customize the package I've chosen?
    Of course! You may add and/or upgrade your package, but you are unable to downgrade.
  • Is rehearsal time included in my package?
    Yes! We include a one-hour rehearsal for our Classic and Elite packages. Rehearsal times will need to be coordinated with an Allegro staff member 30 days before the wedding. Overage Fees will apply to wedding rehearsals. The time allotted for wedding rehearsals is 60 minutes. A 15-minute grace period will be given for rehearsals only. Your coordinator is responsible for directing your rehearsal. Venue staff does not direct rehearsals. Please inquire about our Rehearsal Dinner Package!
  • What is required to book my date?
    If your wedding/event is less than 6 months away, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your date as well as a signed contract. The remaining 50% is due 30 days prior to your wedding/event. If your wedding/event date is 12 months or more out, the payment schedule is as follows: 25% non-refundable deposit of the package total is due upon execution of the rental contract. 25% non-refundable deposit will be due 9 months prior to your wedding/event date. 25% non-refundable deposit is due 6 months prior to your wedding/event date.

The final 50% is due 30 days prior to your wedding/event.
  • Is security required?
    We do not require security for events/weddings under 150 guests. If you have over 150 or prefer to have security at your event, let us know and we will get you in contact with the local Sheriff's Office. They typically charge around $50 per hour.
  • What hotels are near Allegro?
    We are located 30 miles from hotels in downtown Austin, but there are many hotels and Airbnbs near Allegro. Please see our Preferred Vendor Page for additional suggestions.
  • How late can our wedding/event end?
    Depending on which package you choose, you can decide how you want to use your allotted time at the venue. Peak Beverage can serve alcohol until 2 am, so if you wish to go til' then, have at it! One thing to note, however, most vendors will charge a late-night fee. We also ask that your final timeline be sent to us no later than 7 days before the wedding/event to prepare and staff accordingly.
  • Does Allegro have Wifi?
    We do! Cell service can be spotty in the Hill Country. We have Wifi in Baker Hall, the Chapel, and all 5 cottages. We recommend not giving every guest the Wifi password as it will cause it to run very slowly.
  • What is the best time to have our ceremony?
    We suggest a minimum of an hour and a half before sunset. This ensures you will have ample time to take photos after the ceremony. Google can tell you what time the sun will set on your wedding day.
  • Can we hang draping?
    Yes, as long as it is temporarily affixed and done so by a professional. Please, no nails, tacks or glue. We highly recommend using Blingle! for draping.
  • How do I schedule a tour?
    There are three ways to schedule a tour. The preferred method is via our website. Next, you can either email or at or call us at 512-813-5915. We would love to show you around our beautiful property and all we have to offer!
  • Is there a damage/security deposit?
    We do not take damage or security deposits. We do require that a credit card be placed on file 30 days prior to your event. A Credit Card Authorization form will be sent and held on file and charged for up to 60 days after the event in the case of any damages incurred at the event.

    Bands and DJs are welcome! They must bring all equipment, tools, etc. that they need. All wiring must be taped down neatly using gaffer’s tape. All performing vendors are required to do a walkthrough 30 days prior to the event. All of their requirements are outlined in our Vendor Agreement.

  • Does Allegro have Bluetooth capabilities?
    Grace Chapel, Driscoll Pavilion, and Baker Hall all have Bluetooth capabilities. Allegro staff is not in charge of coordinating ceremony music.

    We do not provide microphones or other audio equipment. Your DJ will have you covered.
  • Can we have music outside?
    Yes, of course! All outdoor amplified music needs to be moved indoors by 11pm.
  • Can we eat and have alcohol in the cottages?
    Absolutely! We kindly ask that you and your guests not eat, drink or apply makeup on the sofas or beds. Once your event begins, all alcohol must be procured through the bar and no alcohol may be brought in or out of the cottages.
  • Do we have to rent all of the cottages?
    Of course not! You can add them on for an additional fee, but you are not required to use them. Please see our On-Site Lodging page for more information about our cottages.
  • Are children & guests allowed in the cottages?
    Yes, children and guests are welcome. Children must be supervised at all times.
  • Is there a cleaning fee for the "getting ready" cottages?
    The use of Dove and Ivy cottages are our gift to you for our Classic and Elite Packages; please treat them with respect. Do not move the furniture or take items (including dishes) outside of the cottages. Please leave the spaces in the condition you found them. Damage or messes resulting in excessive cleaning will result in a $250 cleaning fee.
  • Can I bring in my own caterer?
    Absolutely! Allegro does not have in-house catering and you are welcome to bring any caterer you wish. However, we do require caterers to be licensed, insured, and full-service. All vendors will need to be approved and will be required to complete an on-site walk-through with an Allegro staff member 30 days prior to your event. We have a carefully curated preferred vendor list that we love and have worked with in the past.
  • Can I have a food truck?
    Yes! We love food trucks. Since most food trucks do not offer "full service" catering, we ask that you hire someone to take care of cleaning up after guests during your event and at the end of the night. We have recommendations for great full-service companies, please see our Preferred Vendor Page for more information.
  • Can I bring in my own alcohol?
    Allegro has an exclusive partnership with Peak Beverage. They offer many different packages to choose from. Packages start at $18 per person. This includes your TABC-trained bartenders, glassware, garnishes, mixers, setup, and breakdown. They also guarantee that you will never run out of product during an event. Non-drinkers are $6.25 per person. We find that people end up spending a lot less with Peak Beverage as opposed to bringing in their own alcohol.
  • Do you allow Beer Burros?
    Yes! They are amazing and always a guest favorite. We have contact information on our preferred vendor list.
  • Does Allegro have free parking?
    Yes! Complimentary guest parking is available, which can accommodate up to 87 cars.
  • What about vendor parking?
    Vendors may park in the circle driveway to unload; we ask that they do so as quickly as possible to make way for other vendors. Once unloaded, vendors must move all vehicles to the back parking lot. All vendor employees must also park in the back parking lot.
  • Can I leave my car overnight?
    We suggest all guests plan ahead. We have amazing partnerships with local transportation and car services. Uber and Lyft are not reliable where Allegro is located and should not be counted on. We want all of our guests to be safe, if a vehicle needs to be left overnight, we ask that it is picked up by 9 am the following morning. If it is not, it will need to be picked up the following business day. Please note that business days vary from week to week.
  • Does Uber and Lyft work at Allegro?
    Unfortunately, you cannot count on Uber or Lyft at Allegro. It is best to prepare other ways to get home before the event/wedding.
