When do you set up the Mandap if my ceremony is at 5:00 PM ?

We try to set up the mandap about an hour before the guests arrive. If your wedding is at 5:00 PM, most chances the guests arrive at 4:00 PM. We will be on location at 3:00 PM the latest to set it up. If you want us to come earlier or a day before, additional fees apply.
We may need to come earlier if we have multiple weddings on the same day at the same time.

Can you set up my Mandap in Niagra Falls?

We have no problems setting up the Mandap wherever you need. Setting up a Mandap outside of the GTA borders involves an additional fee to cover time and fuel. Please inquire directly with Susan or Itay to get a quote.

What is the difference in hours for 'Set it up and take it away'?

If you choose us to set it up for you and take it away, the charge will be for our time, driving to the venue, installing the Mandap before the guests arrive, waiting for the ceremony to finish (or the wedding) and then take it apart and drive back. Setup fees starting at $180 will apply (4-hr rental). Over 4-hours additional charges apply so you will need to discuss options with us ahead of time.

How can I transport the Mandap to my site?

If you decide to set the Mandap yourself, you will need at least a mini-van or small SUV to transport the posts.

Can I set it up myself? Is it difficult?

Each of our Mandaps are designed for self installation. You can set up the material as you like and add accents.
Please allow yourself at least an hour to install and be prepared to have at least 1 other person helping you.

When do you take the Mandap away?

For most weddings, the Mandap needs to be removed after the ceremony because you’ll need the space for dancing or extra tables.
The guests will leave to another room or enjoy cocktails after the ceremony and we use this time (10 min.) to take it apart the mandap.
We work with your event planner or the venue to make sure your plan goes 100% smoothly.

How long does it take to take the Mandap apart?

Take down should not take more than 20 minutes.

How long does it take to set up the Mandap?
