This was the perfect place for our wedding. We were able to have our ceremony and reception in the same beautiful venue. There are spaces for outdoor pictures, a warm and inviting library for guests to spend time in before the event, and a stage for the band. There is a bridal suite for the girls to get ready on site, and a pub in the basement for the guys to hang out in while they get ready. You can bring your own alcohol to save money on bar costs. Most of all, the staff are phenomenal. They were open to any ideas I had and were instrumental the week before and day of my wedding in keeping me calm!Sent on 04/27/2015

A great place to get married!
When the weather changed unexpectedly, we had to move our ceremony indoors. That was no problem for the Lyceum. They have beautiful indoor and outdoor options for a ceremony.Sent on 05/19/2019
There was still plenty of room for the reception tables to be moved to the back and hidden, making them unobtrusive during the ceremony.
The Lyceum is gorgeous! An historic building, it is beautifully maintained. They have a foyer, a sun room, a bridal suite which is basically a small apartment. It has a fridge, dishwasher, oven, coffee maker, pretty much everything the bride would need. There is a makeup studio for the women to have their hair and makeup done. The gents need not fear as there is a pub-style room in the basement for them, allowing the groom and groomsmen to hang around, getting ready while watching two large screen televisions.
Devon is amazing. She has worked with a number of couples and can help guide you through working with the caterers and others. She'll give you her helpful advice (which I think we almost always, if not always, took) on what's worked for other couples here.

We held our wedding reception at the Lyceum, and it was everything I’d want in a venue and more! Until my wedding planner told us about it, I had never heard of the Glendale Lyceum, but I’m so glad she did, because we LOVED it for our venue. There is so much character and charm, and I’d never been to anything like it before. Throughout our wedding planning process, people would ask us what our venue was. When we told them, so many people/vendors would comment on what a gorgeous venue it was, and they were all right. Not only did we love the look of the place, but the service from Cindy and David from the Lyceum was top notch! They let us visit multiple times so we could get a good idea of the layout, we were allowed to come the day before to set up, and we could leave our stuff overnight after the reception and come pick up the next day. They worked seamlessly with our other vendors, resulting in a great overall flow for our reception and they were just so polite and friendly. The fact that we could bring in our own alcohol was also a huge plus, and saved us so much money in our budget. I really can’t say enough good things about this place, and I’m so glad we chose it as the backdrop for our special day!Sent on 11/11/2016
