Cocktail attire is preferred, but please wear what makes you feel beautiful. There will be indoor and outdoor spaces open, weather permitting. The temperature can vary, but on average for this time of year, you can count on it being about 75 degrees F during the day and cooler at night.

Dinner will be provided by Bear's BBQ from their food truck which will be parked at the venue. A selection of delicious meats and sides will be available along with vegetarian options as well. We want to be as inclusive as possible when it comes to your dietary needs, so please don't hesitate to let us know how we can help accommodate you. We understand that guests may have different preferences when it comes to beverage choices. To cater to everyone's needs, a selection of non-alcoholic drink options will be provided. In addition, Plēb will also be hosting a cash bar during the wedding reception. The bar will offer a small selection of wine and beer to indulge in a celebratory toast or enjoy a drink of your choice, and we do ask that you remember to tip the bartenders as well.
