We absolutely loved working with the Wisconsin Union. My husband and I are both alumni and the Memorial Union was the best wedding venue we could have asked for. Everything was set up the way we ... Read more wanted, on-time, and well done. We did both our ceremony and reception in the same space and they switched the space over quickly and easily between the ceremony and reception. Hattie was wonderful to work with in the planning process and made things easy to understand. Also the views you get from the terrace are unlike anything else. All of our visiting families and friends were in awe! Couldn't recommend it enough!

Wedding at Memorial Union
Our wedding in Tripp Commons at Memorial Union was absolutely magical! The venue was awesome and the staff working the event went out of their way to make it a great night. Our event coordinator made ... Read more made sure everything went smoothly, was organized and communicated with us about our preferences, which made the whole planning experience feel manageable. The bartenders were fun and the waitstaff efficient...food was excellent and you cannot beat the views and location! We LOVED having our wedding here!

We had our wedding reception in Varsity Hall of Union South, and were very pleased with how everything went. We went with the union because of the connection to the UW, the location near downtown ... Read more Madison, and the reasonable cost compared to nearby venues. We had a fairly large guest list (180 total), but they were easily accommodated in two sections of the room. The food was great, and we appreciated having so much choice over the beer as well! We really like the room, and it was especially beautiful during the appetizers when the sun was shining in the big windows. We also really liked that there was so much “overflow” space outside of the ballroom – our guests who were bothered by the music could go relax on the patio or out on the tables/ couches right outside of Varsity Hall. Hattie was our wedding coordinator, and she was great to work with. The union changed their catering menu between when we signed the contract and our wedding, but she was flexible with us and allowed us to pick off the old menu as well. There was a slight miscommunication about the cost of the bar on the day of the wedding (in our favor), and they were very flexible and honored the lower price that we had been told. Overall, a great pick for a venue!
