Suggested Attire

Your couple's website will likely answer this question for you, but if they don't specify we'd suggest upscale casual.

Keep in mind we are an outdoor venue. This means varying, walking surfaces including grass, gravel, wood chips and concrete. If you are going the heels route, we suggest block or wedges for you to be comfortable. Also, please take a look at the weather when choosing your attire. Bringing an extra layer is always a great idea! 

While You're Here
Enjoy our property! Our landscape and property maintenance teams work hard to provide the best possible experience for you. While hanging on the lawn, admiring the pond or simply enjoying the fresh air please be mindful of your little ones as our pond is very close to the event area. Feel free to ask any Northern Oaks staff for any assistance needed.
Restroom facilities are next to the pavilion and are temperature controlled. 
For events taking place in the Pavilion, the Main Lodge is reserved for bridal party and immediate families only.  
If alcohol will be served at the event, please note that we ID anyone that appears under the age of 40, following the industry standard. Only guests 21 years and older will be served at Northern Oaks. Therefore, please remember your IDs!
We do not have any overnight accommodations on property. However we do recommend the Hilton Garden Inn St. Cloud.
