    Beautiful venue!

    Triwood was great! The two halls are in great shape and looked beautiful for our wedding. The food was AMAZING! A bonus is the staff putting away tables/chairs the next day to help with clean up. Very reasonably priced too! We we very happy with having our wedding at Triwood!

    This venue is amazing ! The staff are super helpful and were able to cater to all of our needs even if they were last minute changes. The venue sets up the tables and chairs and cleans them up after so you don't have to worry about any of it. The catering was delicious, no issues with the diet restrictions we had requested, we would recommend the gala buffet, it provides a lot of options for the guests.
    Would highly recommend!

    Thanks Grace for the kind words! We had an amazing time working with you on your wedding. We wish you all the best.

    Great bang for your buck

    Triwood Community Association was wonderful. They where quick to respond to all our needs. They went above the beyond for us. The cheaper price did not mean a lesser quality, if anything I thought that the quality of the food, and the service people was excellent.

    Hi Lina,
    Thank you so much for your kind words! You and John were such a pleasure to work with and we loved your HP theme.
    Cheers,

    We had our 120 person wedding at Triwood. The venue is affordable, but still has incredible potential and delicious food. Alex, the event planner, was very responsive and ensured all of our needs were met. The food was delicious and table service was great - very friendly staff! The venue included table linens and beautiful hanging string lights next to the tall windows, which looked beautiful during both the day and night of the reception.

    Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review. You were both such a pleasure to work with and I wish you a happy and fun filled life together!

    The good and bad

    The good -
    We had our ceremony and reception at Triwood, renting the 2 halls.
    This was a beautiful venue, the lighting is stunning and it helped make our day easier.
    The food was amazing and the caterers were flexible with the changing covid times.

    The bad-
    If you thrive on communication, I suggest look away.

    We had issues getting ahold of triwood to start, we finally got a viewing and loved it. Jennifer went over the top to help us because we were out of town, even coming in on days off.
    As soon as we got the deposit down the communication began to lack.
    We were planning this wedding during Covid so I blame that partially, we had to zig and zag alot.
    There was multiple instances where I had to send multiple messages to get an answer. Sending multiple requests for quotes, and time sensitive things.
    Once I got Jennifer's cell phone number a month prior to the wedding, it got better and also worse. It felt like my time ment nothing, multiple questions left unanswered or "read" deadlines promised and not fulfilled.
    Jennifer did come through as our day of coordinator helping set up the hall and making things perfect for us.
    The most frustrating part was after the wedding, in regards to getting our deposit back. We signed signed contract stating we would receive it back within 2 weeks or 10 buisness days.
    We didn't recieve our money back until almost a month later.
    We planned this wedding ourselves, we didn't have a wedding planner, and we also lived 6 hours away, making the lapse in communication extremely frustrating.
    Our wedding was the best day of my life, and I wouldn't change the venue for anything, things just need to be managed better.

    I heard amazing things prior to booking with triwood and Jennifer which made us more excited to book them and I'm wondering where that changed.

    Beautiful and spacious venue. Easy setup/take down. Tasty food. Great value.

    We rented both halls for a 95ppl wedding reception. The Charleswood hall had plenty of natural lighting. The string lights on the curtains were beautiful. The staff took care of setting up tables and taking down which made our life a lot easier. We had access to the venue the afternoon prior to the wedding to set up the decors. With help from a few family members and my wedding coordinator, we put out center pieces, photos and other decors in just a couple of hours. The in-house catering team was brilliant. Food was delicious and service was friendly and quick. The late night poutine buffet was an absolute hit! The Charleswood hall had plenty of space to dance. Sound was great. We used our own liquor and hired bartenders from Triwood. Both corkage fee and bartender wage were reasonable. We had a blast at the wedding reception!

    June Wedding 2019 - Beautiful local venue - Blank slate to create your perfect day!

    We got married in June 2019 - Triwood was a beautiful option for us, as we wanted a venue in Calgary, and one that gave us flexibility to bring our own vendors. They have big bright windows and clean colours on floors and walls. The venue is your oyster when it comes to decor! They were responsive and allowed us to drop by on multiple occasions to measure the space. They repainted the walls with fresh paint right before our wedding (maybe by chance) and it looked so clean. We ended up having the ceremony in a park only 5-minutes away. They reserved us parking out front for wedding party and family. Jennifer joined the team half way through our planning process with Triwood, but was amazing to pick up the details so quickly in the transition. They added an extra bartender for us as requested and were great with changes we wanted to make to the regular set up. The host toonie bar is highly recommended as the staff working our event were friendly to all. They have renovated bathrooms which are lovely too and nice for guests. The space also has a built in stage where our DJ set up, keeping more room available on the dance floor. We did not use their catering service, but heard great things and was one of our options. Overall, great experience! Thank you Triwood Team.

    Thank you for the review Meg! I'm happy everything turned out so well.

    It was lovely working with you guys.

    Best Wishes,

    Wedding Success

    Triwood Community Association is a terrific place to host a wedding. They were a one stop shop for all our needs. They set up and take down all the tables with linens and provide in house catering that our guests are still raving about. The big windows are terrific especially with the twinkle lights at night.
    They supply the bartender and ticket seller as well as the staff to bus tables post buffet. Everyone was a joy to deal with. We even booked the dj that they have flyers for in the hall and you get a discount for using them. They were the cheapest option I could find when researching and were also stellar.
    We are so happy with everything and how it turned out. Thank you so much to all the staff that made our day a huge success.

    Perfect venue to celebrate our engagement!

    The Charleswood and Collingwood Halls were the perfect place to host our engagement party. The option to rent out both for our event allowed our guests the chance to mingle, dance, and left plenty of room for the buffet line.
    The Charleswood hall features beautiful windows that overlook the park, and each panel of curtains has twinkle lights which set the perfect atmosphere that I wouldn’t have been able to do myself!
    Jennifer was an absolute delight to work with. I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator. She was readily available to answer any questions we had (including a phone call at 9pm the night before the engagement party), was unbelievably accommodating for any requests we had, and followed up after the event to ensure everything was a success.
    The beautiful venue is enough of a reason to book for your event, but Jen made the entire process that much better.

    Triwood Community Association's reply:

    Thank you Ronda! Congratulations on your engagement. It was a pleasure working with the two of you.
