Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book a space with Cocoon?
Contact us and tell us about your event. A member of our customer experience team will assess your needs to ensure we are able to make your vision a reality.
If you decide to move forward, the event manager with whom you spoke will visit the space with you in person and take further notes on your ideas, and will begin organizing decor, catering, other vendors as needed (such as djs, live music, a/v tech, etc.), logistics, and insurance. For the day of the wedding, you will be assigned at least one Casa Manager (depending on the size of the event) who will be onsite with you to ensure everything runs smoothly and to help coordinate deliveries, guest arrivals, and anything else you may need.
How much advance notice do you need to run an event?
Two to three months in advance is an ideal time to reach out to us, reserve your space, and to have us start working out logistics. That said, we can also work quickly, so we can also handle much shorter windows of time.
What type of services do you offer for weddings?
We offer a complete array of event services to handle your wedding. Our goal is to make sure you have the experience you want, so we have an expert event professional work with you one-on-one. You tell us your vision and we will source all the options. Unlike other wedding planners, we also rent space, so we start with your sharing what kind of wedding you envision—a sophisticated evening with dancing, daytime light-drenched loft, outdoor spaces, and much more.
When the foundational element of space is selected, we consult with you step-by-step to build from there. We bring all the options to you and you choose—your life will not come to a standstill during this process, you provide direction and we do all the work.
We arrange for the florists, catering, bartending, photographers, party tents, videographers, after-party bar reservations, car services, hair and makeup, nearby hotels, music, cakes and bakeries, photo booth rentals, performers, lighting equipment, furniture rentals, balloons, and decor. Anything you need, we can provide.
On the day of your wedding, a Casa Manager will be onsite the entire time to handle everything. Your first day of married life will be utter bliss and stress-free.
Can I bring my own catering company?
If you already have a caterer you like and know, of course you are welcome to use that company. If you do not, we do have an extensive network of caterers. Once you have confirmed your space rental with us, our event team will listen to your must-haves and wishes about food and service (buffet versus table service, for example) and we will release your request to our network and source the best quotes for you.
It is important to note that we believe strongly in supporting our vendor communities to create a diverse business ecosystem in NYC. This means that we do not accept payments from vendors to be listed with us, we do not add a markup of our own to their quotes, and we are constantly seeking to include new and talented vendors in our network.
What are my payment options?
Credit card, wire transfer, direct deposit, and Paypal.
Would any of your spaces be good for a small wedding of 100 guests?
Yes, many of our spaces would be suitable for a small wedding of under 100 guests depending on your style and vision for your wedding. Consult with our event management team, they can help you find the perfect space that fits your needs.
Do I need insurance to use your spaces?
Yes. We can help you with this. For weddings, we partner with a few insurance providers and our management team can work with you to get an insurance quote that meets your budget and needs.
