When you book The Troutdale House, you can’t forget about all the extra things you will receive. Stuff that you may not even know you want or need at the moment. But don’t worry, we’ve been doing this for a while and have got you covered.
Did you know that The Troutdale House offers little hidden bonuses for their clients?! One of those hidden bonuses is that the first wedding of the weekend is able to load items in at their rehearsal. Typically, this will be the Friday wedding, but occasionally, we have a Thursday event and the Friday wedding would not be able to bring in items early in that situation. If you are scheduled for a Friday wedding and want to bring items to your rehearsal, please check with your coordinator to confirm there are no other events happening before your event. This is just one example of things that we try to do to make your wedding day easier and smoother. So remember, if you book a Friday, it’s an extra perk of being the first wedding of the weekend!
The bridal suite at The Troutdale House is truly something special, one look and you’ll understand why. Situated on the entire top floor of the venue, it offers a spacious and secluded space for the bride and bridal party to get ready for the big day.
The Suite is spacious, with plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. You’ll find couches and chairs arranged around the room, perfect for catching up, relaxing, or taking a moment before your ceremony.
In addition to all the seating, the suite is also equipped with multiple make-up stations that are perfect for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready for the day ahead. Each station has a mirror and is situated with natural light from above.
Your photographer will love the many backdrops that create the perfect wedding and Instagram photos. With all the options for seating, and all the mirrors lining the walls – it’s the perfect place to prepare for one of the biggest days of your life.
Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about the groom. We offer another dressing room downstairs for the guys (and no, it’s not the bathroom). As soon as you step into the room, the first thing you’ll notice is the 1950s Cadillac gracing the front of the bar. The car memorabilia is a perfect backdrop for pictures, while still making the room functional. There is a bar, perfect for a drink before the festivities start. Also included are steamers to help remove those last-minute wrinkles, so you can look perfect on your wedding day. The groom’s room is the perfect place to relax and prepare before the wedding. With its classic car decorations, ample space, and bar – it’s sure to set the right mood for all who enter.
The Troutdale House comes equipped with dancing lights. With one push of a button, we are ready to start the party during your reception.
When you are ready, our staff will dim down the lights on the main floor (all of our lights are on dimmer switches!) and we’ll switch our LED lights to dance mode. This makes the lights flash to the beat of the music that is playing. These lights can be used in conjunction with any setup you choose to play your music, it works with the DJ that you hire or it works with our sound system. Just push a button… and dance the night away!
Worried that your guests won’t have something to do during your wedding?! Well, now you don’t need to worry as we’ve got it handled at The Troutdale House. Our game room is situated right outside the groom’s room and is a perfect place for your guests and groomsmen to relax and unwind. Featuring a pool table, air hockey, and foosball – there will be plenty for everyone to do. Whether the groom’s men are blowing off some steam before the start of the ceremony or your guests find themselves in a heated air hockey match during the reception, it is guaranteed that fun will be had by all and that your wedding will be the wedding that everyone is talking about for years to come!
Also, don’t forget to step outside the groom's room back door and play a quick round of putt-putt golf.
