MAY I COME TOUR THE GREENHOUSE?
At this time, we are meeting with clients by appointment only. We ask that only two people attend each tour and that all parties are masked. We will update this information as guidelines change. Our weekend open houses will be on hold until further notice. Please note, we are a gated property and we are not visible from the road.
DO YOU ALLOW TENTING?
YES! Our diverse spaces at The Greenhouse at Driftwood can accommodate events of all sizes. All clients hosting events with over 50 guests are required to secure and submit a rain plan consisting of a tent in any one or several of our outdoor areas. We work exclusively with Whim Event Rentals and IndieHouse Events for tenting.
CAN WE GET MARRIED IN THE GREENHOUSE?
The greenhouses are a special part of our venue. We love for people to enjoy them, but please understand the plants are incredibly rare and extremely important to us. The capacity for the desert greenhouse is ten which includes a photographer and officiant, so it works well for elopements or tiny ceremonies. The tropical greenhouse can hold up to 40, but please note the couple and officiant are the only people allowed on the pathway in the actual plants. Please inquire with questions or for clarity.
CAN WE BRING IN ALCOHOL?
We do allow clients to bring in outside alcohol at The Greenhouse at Driftwood. However, all alcohol must be served by TABC certified bartenders.
DO YOU HAVE SOUND RESTRICTIONS? DO YOU ALLOW FIREWORKS?
Beginning in 2020, music must end by 9pm Monday through Thursday, 10pm on Fridays, 10:30pm on Saturdays, and 6pm on Sundays. In addition, all entertainment must be approved in advance. All music must be at a decibel level of 80 or lower. In addition, we ask all entertainers to not amplify base. We have never had an issue with this request and the integrity of the sound has never been compromised.
We do not allow fireworks at The Greenhouse.
DO YOU HAVE PREFERRED VENDORS?
We do! We are happy to provide our list upon request. While we do not require the use of our preferred vendors, we do highly recommend them as they have worked with the venue and Management before and continuously provide excellent services.
We do require clients use one of our preferred vendors for tenting.
Beginning in 2020, all coordinators, caterers, and entertainment not on our preferred vendor list must be approved in writing ahead of time.
HOW DO I BECOME A PREFERRED VENDOR?
Great question! We credit so much of our success to the relationships we have fostered with our preferred vendors. We are happy to refer vendors we have worked with in the past and that have been positive and meaningful. That way, we know we are offering our clients the best through our own experience. If you have worked here before and would like to be added, please feel free to get in touch.

The Greenhouse at Driftwood has parking spaces for 120 cars. We highly encourage providing shuttles for guests coming from Austin or San Antonio. For events expecting more than 120 cars, we require shuttles be provided.

All pets must be approved by The Greenhouse at Driftwood management in advance. Typically, pets are okay to be in your ceremony, but we do ask that all pets be on a leash while on property. In addition, no pets are allowed inside the venue or in either greenhouse. After the ceremony, pets must be either escorted off the property or crated in a comfortable shaded area.
