    A good place to work with

    The folks at the Alerus Center are always great to work with and make planning an evening very easy. We've worked a number of weddings there that all of them were fantastic.

    The Alerus Center does a really nice job on the food but they are the most expensive place in town. We had them serve a sit down supper with Deluxe Beef Tips, Chicken Cordon Blue and Vegetarian Pasta as the entrees. They were really good to work with on the planning and preparation and they worked with us on our last minute requests. There are 3 main ballrooms so you can have one ballroom for up to 320 guests but we were expecting close to 400 so we had 2 ballrooms (called ballroom 1-2-3 and 4). The ceilings are really high in there so decorating is a little daunting. We hired some outside lighting people and used our tall floral arrangements from the ceremony to decorate. Overall, we were very pleased with the Alerus Center. It is especially nice to have a hotel attached to the Alerus (Canad Inn) and that is where most of our family members stayed as well as across the street and down the street a block.
