Can I choose my own vendors?
We believe your event should be yours - so Imago offers an open vendor policy.
We offer a list of caterers, planners, florists, DJ’s, bartenders and rental companies we have had great experiences with.
What is your alcohol policy?
We allow you purchase and bring in your own alcoholic beverages. We require 1 basset certified bartender per 100 guests. We are happy to provide excellent bartenders for an additional fee.
What is the floor plan of the building?
We have 2 main spaces, named after our history as a car dealership — THE SHOWROOM and THE SHOP. Here are some sample floor plans that may come in handy. Our team is happy to create a custom diagram for your event. You may also take a 360º virtual tour of the space.
Where do my guests park?
Good news, there is lots of free parking on the street, parking lot and parking garage right next to our building.
How late can my event go?
The Building is yours for up to 12 hours. Events need to end by 11pm on Friday & Saturday and 10pm Sunday — Thursday.
Is the space handicap accessible?
Yes. The Showroom has 1 small step, the rest of the facility is ground level. We can provide a portable ramp for guests in the Showroom if needed.
What is your food policy?
We allow you hire your own caterer or bring in your own food. For clients who are not hiring a full-service caterer, we require you to hire a minimum of two of our service staff to clear tables and remove garbage.
Can we bring in our own decorations?
Yes. We have some restrictions on what you can bring and how to hang things. We will share those details with you when you visit.
Do you have Wifi?
Yes - for free and it is fast.
Can I drop off items or setup the day before my event?
If the venue is not booked and our staff is scheduled to be there, we can arrange for you to drop-off, items. Setup and decorating must take place during your scheduled event time. Additional setup hours may be added based on venue availability for an additional fee.
Do I need to hire a Wedding Coordinator or Event Planner?
Our owner/venue manager will work with you and your vendors leading up to your event to make sure details and activities will run smoothly. On the day of your event one of our Event Hosts will be present to ensure the venue is as it should be, assist you with load in, greet & settle in your vendors; in general, making sure the big picture is happening as you envisioned. This is not the same as a Wedding Coordinator or Event Planner. We recommend you hire a coordinator or planner to execute the details and coordinate specific event elements. Ask us about our coordinator services.
Are there area hotels for me & my guests?
Yes! We help take the hassle out of finding the best room rate. Our friends at the Elgin Area Convention & Visitors Bureau make this a stress free process. We will be sure to get the two of you together!
