What outside vendors can I bring in?LWAdmin2021-10-30T17:46:09+00:00
Yes, however, we have a couple of basic décor rules: Please do not damage the venue by permanently affixing anything to our walls or structures. We do not all confetti due to city and state restrictions as it can harm wildlife.
Why can’t I schedule my rehearsal more than 30 days before my wedding?LWAdmin2021-10-30T17:47:53+00:00
Yes, but it may not be necessary. Los Willows provides a venue planner and venue coordinator in your package which is sufficient for most brides, however, if you require guidance beyond the venue, then a hiring your own wedding professional my be a good option.
During the winter months, why must I start my wedding no later than 3PM?LWAdmin2022-01-25T03:47:22+00:00
During the winter months from November through February, we start our weddings at 3PM. The reason for this is, Los Willows is located in a canyon with a large hill to the west of us, therefore the sun sets 20 minutes earlier at Los Willows than recorded sunset time for Fallbrook.
We require your wedding to begin at 3PM to ensure public safety as we cannot allow guests to arrive or leave the meadow ceremony location in the dark. Furthermore, we want to ensure that your ceremony and subsequent photos will not be in the dark.
I am thinking about putting an earlier start time on my invitations. Is this a good idea?LWAdmin2021-10-30T17:49:23+00:00
No, don’t do it! This causes havoc when guests arrive too early as staff is not set up for them and our parking lot does not open until one hour prior to ceremony. Guests are never happy when they are asked to wait when entering the premises. Also, if you are wanting First Look photographs, you need the quiet time to make this happen.
Food & Beverage
When is my menu tasting?LWAdmin2021-10-30T17:54:33+00:00
Yes, please let us know when we schedule your menu tasting and be sure to inform your Wedding Planner. Finally, when turning in your guest count let us know how many specialty meals are needed and what table they will be seated at.
What is a duet plate and why is it better than a single entrée served?LWAdmin2021-10-30T17:55:10+00:00
This is our most popular option for those couples choosing a served menu. The duet plate consists of two entrees and two side dishes selected by you at your tasting, which eliminates the need for your guests to list a preference on their RSVP. We discourage single entrée selections because guest preferences can change at time of dinner service and because our menus are catered, we are unable to switch selected entrees causing some guests to be disappointed.
Can we bring in our own liquor and alcohol?LWAdmin2021-10-30T17:55:37+00:00
Los Willows is a licensed facility and does not allow outside alcohol as per our ABC regulations. We do, however, allow up to two bottles of a specialized liquor that we do not carry. A $50 corkage fee, per bottle (up to 2 bottles), will be charged. Please call our Bar Manager, Lynne, for specific details. 760-689-6073

Are children and adults priced differently?LWAdmin2021-10-30T17:49:55+00:00
Security serves many functions starting with directing late arriving guests so they don’t hinder your ceremony by interfering with your grand entrance. Security is also monitoring the property for guest’s safety and keeping a watchful eye when the bar is open to avoid serving to minors, etc.
Do you offer streaming video for the ceremony for family that cannot attend?LWAdmin2021-10-30T17:57:11+00:00
Balloon Release: Los Willows, along with all other Venues in San Diego County, are not permitted to release any Balloons or any other thing that floats in air. Unfortunately, this is a San Diego County law and any balloon made of a material that is electrically conductive is prohibited from being filled with a gas that is lighter than air and released outdoors. Selling or distributing balloons filled with a gas that is lighter than air is also prohibited.
Confetti: Los Willows is an outdoor venue, and we love for our couples to celebrate in fun ways! Unfortunately, due to us being in a natural setting, the confetti, dissolving and otherwise, disrupts the gentle balance of our wildlife, so we ask that you save that for the other celebrations you have with your family and friends leading up to your wedding day. Please speak to your wedding planner about fun alternatives that are festive and memorable
