         (when booking your rooms you will need to contact us directly - 985-634-7786 to be able to utilize the facility for Dress the Bridal Party)

          (if the gazebo and pavillions are not already rented when making your reservations, they can also be added for no facility incremental cost to the special pricing package)

    (plus applicable taxes and gratuity, plus 3.5% credit card fees if used)

Get ready to move on to your marriage commitment by spending a special time with the people who have been a major part of your life – your bridal attendants and moms. The Dress The Bridal Party event adds a memorable experience to allow you the seclusion and bounding needed before your wedding.

The $795 event package without the 2 night full facility room and glamping rentals includes:
  • Rental of two of our private balcony rooms on the night before the Bridal Dressing for 4 people.
  • Use these rooms for Dress the Bridal Party the day of the wedding for up to 8 people (including the bride). If there are more than 8 bridal party members, another room must be rented to Dress The Bridal Party on the day of the event. With the three balcony connected second floor rooms all rented, up to 12 bridal party members can be readily accommodated on the wedding day. Additionally, pricing will be increased accordingly for food and beverages for Dress the Bridal Party guests in excess of 8.
  • Note: our facility can accommodate up to 8 overnight guests by renting 4 rooms (more if also utilizing our RV glamping slots). Renting the 3rd and 4th rooms and the glamping sites will increase the Dress the Bridal Party event cost by the currently published room/glamping rates at time the reservations are made. Look at our special pricing option for the further benefits of the full facility, full capacity 2 night rentals as this option can save you money for larger bridal parties.
  • To get full facility use and have your bridesmaids enjoy the game rooms, common areas, hot tubs and possibly have their hairdressing and make-up done in our spacious common areas; you will need to pay the incremental cost to rent all 4 rooms and the two glamping sites at full capacity for two nights. If the full facility is rented for the nights on each side of the wedding, the bride and groom can enjoy the honeymoon 1st night of marriage package incidentals without paying the Honeymoon incremental fee (as long as the bridesmaids agree not to reuse their rooms that night). If any rooms are already rented by non-wedding party members before you reserve the event with this option, you will not have this option available. Hence, you should book out the facility well in advance of your planned event date.
  • If any non-overnight guests or non-bridal party members (other than the groom and the bridal party attendants/hairdressers/make-up artists) are utilizing the common indoor areas of the facility during the Dress the Bridal Party event, an incremental $750 non-overnight guest fee will be required.   You can designate up to 16 persons as overnight guests with a full facility, full capacity rental even if the guests are not truly spending the night.
  • If all 4 rooms and 2 glamping sites are rented for two nights where each night is before and after the wedding (full facility rental) for the Bridal Party event, all members will have full common area access and outside food and beverages will then be allowed to be served in the common areas for all guests designated as overnight attendees in the event. Even with guest provided food, the dress the bridal party events fees will not be reduced. When outside food/beverages are used by non-overnight guests in the common areas, a $250 potentially refundable deposit for clean-ups not done in a timely manner will be required.
  • For a non-full capacity two day facility rentals event for a day weddings: Full gourmet breakfast for all overnight guests and up to 4 additional others in our Bed and Breakfast common area (Note: we have a strict limit of two overnight guests per rented room and 4 overnight guests for each of our two Glamping Sites).
  • For a non-full capacity two day facility rentals event for an evening weddings: The package includes an incremental snack tray for all overnight guests and up to 4 others (cheese, fruit, small sandwiches and crackers)
  • Pricing will be increased accordingly for food and beverages for Dress the Bridal Party guests in excess of all overnight guests and up to 4 others.   Any guest counts in excess of 16 will require special caterers and incremental furnishings and as such will require increased pricing.
  • Beverages include soft drinks, bottled water, coffee
  • Fresh squeezed OJ-bring your own champagne (for all overnight guests and up to 4 others)
  • We will not charge an increment for hairdressers and makeup artists that you hire independently to attend you and your bridesmaids on the day of the wedding only (they can be incremental to the maximum of all overnight guests and up to 4 others). This can allow you to have everything done at one location and in elegant suites.
  • Your photographer and videographer are welcome to capture memories of this unique opportunity in the Dress The Bridal Party Rented Rooms. If you rent the full facility (rooms and glamping at full capacity), the photographer and videographer will have at no charge access to our full facility rather than just the rented rooms.
