    FAQs


    Food and Beverage

    Show All | Hide All

    Please explain the food and beverage minimum.

    The food and beverage minimum is the least amount of money that you are required to spend on a combination of food and beverage, excluding service charge and sales tax, but is not all that you could spend. The food and beverage minimum is reached by selecting individually priced, a la carte menu items to equal or exceed the required dollar figure.

    The following examples would apply towards the food and beverage minimum:

    Hors d’oeuvres, food display and carving stations, plated or buffet meal, wedding cake, dessert display stations, wine service with the meal, champagne toast, the bar (including alcohol), specialty station and any non-alcoholic beverages.

    Centerpieces, upgraded linens/china/silverware, décor, and specialty lighting would not apply towards the food and beverage minimum.



    Can Food and Beverage be brought in from the outside?

    The hotel must provide all food and beverage items. The sale and service of alcoholic beverages is regulated by the Florida State Liquor Commission and Viceroy Miami is responsible for the administration of those regulations. It is the hotel’s policy that all alcoholic beverages must be provided by the hotel.

    When do I need to finalize my menu?

    Food and beverage selections must be finalized and confirmed with your Wedding Coordinator a maximum of 6-8 weeks prior to the date of your wedding.

    Can I create a customized menu for the wedding reception?

    Additional menu selections and customized proposals are available through your Catering Manager. We will be happy to customize a menu based on your needs.

    Do you offer a menu tasting?

    We offer all our Brides the opportunity to experience our Chef's unique food tasting four to six weeks prior to the wedding. Please schedule your tasting with your Catering Manager.

    Does the hotel offer a discounted guest room block?

    If you wish to reserve a block of rooms for your family and guests, please notify your Wedding Coordinator who can provide you with availability and rates.

    Where does the bridal party get ready before the wedding?

    We recommend guestroom reservations be made for a minimum two night length of stay with a check-in date of the night before the wedding and checkout the day after the wedding. This will eliminate the stress on the day of the wedding of having to check-in and out of guestrooms.

    When do I need to let the hotel know exactly how many guests will be attending my event?

    The hotel must be notified of the exact number of guests attending a function at least 72 working hours prior to the start of the event. This will be considered a guarantee, for which you will be charged, even if fewer guests attend the event.

    Can I arrange to have my ceremony at the hotel?

    Yes. You may arrange to have your ceremony in designated areas of Viceroy Miami. Ceremony fees range from $700 to $2,500 depending on the site selection.

    Is it less expensive to host a wedding in the Summer or Winter?

    Summer is traditionally thought of as low season in Miami. We can offer more flexible conditions during that time with lower food and beverage minimums.

    Do I need to provide a deposit to secure my date?

    To secure a date, a signed contract and non-refundable deposit is required. The deposit is 25% of the estimated value of the event. A full estimated prepayment of the event is due two weeks prior to the wedding date. A credit card will need to be on file to accommodate any overages on the day of the event.
