COVID SAFETY PLAN + GUIDELINES
This weekend has been planned with great care for the health and safety of our friends and family. We’re closely following state and federal health guidelines for COVID-19, and have taken deliberate steps to create an environment that is optimized for your safety so you can dance, socialize, and celebrate with peace of mind.
We are asking all of our guests to be fully vaccinated to ensure a safe experience for everyone. Please bring proof of vaccination to the Villa Royale.
All of the weekends events will take place outdoors in large, open spaces to further mitigate risk of transmission.
The Villa Royale has been privatized for the weekend and is exclusive to our guests. This allows us to create a controlled 'bubble' of fully vaccinated friends and family.
We have confirmed that all vendors and service staff are fully vaccinated. In addition, any staff that interface with our guests will wear masks.
What should I wear?
Dress to impress! We encourage fun colors and patterns for Palm Springs. Early November in PS is typically warm during the day, but please be prepared for cooler temperatures after sundown.
He should wear: A suit and tie.
She should wear: Long dress, cocktail dress, dressy suit or jumpsuit. Please note, the ceremony and reception are on a grass lawn, so shoes with a wedge or block heel are recommended.
Where should I stay?
We've reserved discounted room blocks at The Triada, Movie Colony, and Little Paradise. We've also assembled a list of our top hotel picks, featuring close proximity to the wedding venue across a range of styles and prices. Click here to see the full list.
The Villa Royale will be fully private to our group from 4pm Friday to 11am Sunday - so no matter where you're booked, we welcome all of our guests to join us anytime at the VR!
How do I get to the venue?
Villa Royale is 6 minutes from the PS Airport and located at 1620 S Indian Trail. We recommend Uber/Lyft for convenient transportation. Shuttles for the Welcome Party and Wedding will be provided to/from The Triada and Little Paradise hotels and can be picked up outside the front lobby entrances.

Can I bring my kids?
We love your kiddos! However, Villa Royale is a 21+ hotel, and for the wedding events, we are limiting children to immediate family. If not specified on your invitation we kindly ask that you make alternative plans for your kids the weekend of the wedding. The Villa Royale does allow small, well behaved dogs (that won't jump on Mara's white dress).
