Great Wedding Venue!
We had our wedding on 8/3 at the Best Western Hotel and Convention Center. It was absolutely the best day ever and it is all thanks to Miranda and the BW banquet staff as well as the managers of the hotel, Dan and David. Miranda was very responsive throughout our entire wedding planning process and was accommodating as possible! The only time I had to wait for an email back (on a very rare occasion) was maybe a Sunday or Monday afternoon when Miranda was likely not in the hotel. :)
Food - We had our dinner catered (of course) through the convention center’s banquet staff and it was amazing! We received so many compliments all night, and are still receiving those compliments, about how great the food was as well as how amazing the banquet staff did in getting all of the food out. Our wedding was about 240 people and we have been to weddings of smaller sizes, where we ended up waiting a very long time to receive our meal. There were many comments about how efficient the banquet staff was in getting all of the plated meals out to the tables in a timely manner!
Budget - Yes, weddings are expensive but in terms of all of Oshkosh, this venue was the most affordable for us as well as it offered everything we wanted and needed. There is a hotel
Attached so we did not need to worry about a shuttle, it is located right on Main Street so people had places to go between mass and the reception, it is on the water so it offered a pretty backdrop for pictures, and the venue was large enough to accommodate our guest list.Sent on 08/27/2019

HIGHLY recommend this venue!
We were married here on August 24th. We rented the South Half of the Convention Center. We booked about a year ago after getting engaged. The preparation was painless with Miranda. She was so calm and answered any/all questions we had in a timely manner. She makes sure your day is everything you want it to be! Our wedding turned out to be the most amazing day. We had so many compliments on the professionalism of the venue along with how kind all of the staff was. Looking back we wouldn't of changed a thing. Miranda and her team did a phenomenal job and we cannot thank her enough!Sent on 08/31/2019
This is one of the premier reception venues in the area. They are very efficient and help take the stress out of your wedding day. We would highly recommend Best Western Premier.
Amazing wedding venue!!!
It has been a pleasure working with this venue and getting to know Miranda! We're looking forward to all of our upcoming weddings at the Best Western and the Convention Center!
