Here’s what you need to know about getting married at the DelRay Ballroom.
Brief history of the DelRay Ballroom
The DelRay Ballroom opened in 2001 and was initially used as a dance studio. Soon after opening, however, people quickly expressed huge interest in hosting their events in the ballroom space. Since then the DelRay has become one of the most popular venues in the Lincoln area. Their philosophy is to make choosing your venue one of the most stress-free experiences possible.
Available space and guests that can be held
The DelRay consists of one large indoor ballroom which can hold a maximum of 275 people with tables and chairs for dinner. For a ceremony that number could increase depending on the floor layout you choose! At the front of the venue is a separated bar and lounge area giving your guests easy navigation to and from the bar. The DelRay has worked very hard to design a set of floor plans that promote open navigation.
The base price for a Saturday wedding at the DelRay is $2,850. They offer multiple tiers depending on your guest count with the maximum guest count of 275 costing $3,400. Alternatively, Friday weddings start at $2,550 & go up to $3,100 respectively. You can also rent the DelRay for your rehearsal for $350.
Adding bar service to your wedding can be done at a cost of $75 per bartender with 275 guest weddings requiring 4 bartenders. For $19.75 per person you get Domestic Draft Beer, Soda, House Wines & Well and Call drinks.
