As the 1st bride, of the 1st wedding, of the VERY FIRST event at Main Street Ballroom (MSB), I am compelled to share my experience with this very special place with all those who are out there making a decision on where to marry the love of your life. If you are like me you are feeling a bit overwhelmed and an extreme amount of pressure on how to pull this big day together. Venue was the first thing I looked for when planning and MSB was such a blessing to stumble upon! Their policies are like no other because they have a FOUNDATION OF FLEXIBILITY. I found other venues just told me what we can't do while the staff of MSB was always telling me what we could do and how they could help and accommodate. Other venues we looked at had restrictions on start times and vendors which I feel benefitted the venue and not US. We had a lot of DIY decor for our wedding so the ability to get into the venue at 8am the day of the event was so important. MSB has natural charm and unique features and you can truly create any atmosphere you imagine- rustic, elegant, modern,etc. We went for an industrial chic look and my guests praised the feel of the venue, it felt so special and exclusive. MSB has an adorable bridal suite full of all the accommodations you don't realize you need until: your phone battery is low (charging station), you can't put your dress on without sitting down (plush couch), you need some privacy to change (curtain section in corner) and your best girlfriends need to look their best too (several mirrored changing stations). Kate, the Owner, and Laura, the Director, were fantastic to work with! They were responsive to every request and question and were invested in making our day special. When I mentioned concern with my guests finding the venue they illustrated a map and posted it on their website and had 3 new directional signs made! I found them to be extremely resourceful and full of good ideas on how to utilize the space to match our vision.

Amazing wedding venue
The venue space was perfect for our wedding. We loved the aesthetic, and the location in Old Ellicott City was a big hit with our guests. The venue is extremely flexible in terms of how long you can use the space during the day, which made getting ready and coordinating vendors a breeze. Definitely recommend Main Street Ballroom!

Entyse Lyfe had the opportunity to work with Kate and the Main Street Ballroom team for their Open House event! It is truly great as a planner to work with a Venue that is upfront, honest and flexible. Main Street is all of that and so much more! This space is amazing for any event. The natural elements of Main Street Ballroom are great for capturing beautiful photos for your most special moments! We highly recommend Main Street Ballroom!
Main Street Ballroom is such a unique and gorgeous space to hold your wedding! Kate is such a joy to work with - easygoing, creative and totally appreciates how stressful wedding planning can be, so the policies and offerings she has crafted for engaged couples are such a refreshing thing to see in this industry! I've had the pleasure of photographing the ballroom both indoors and out, and LOVE the texture, history, charm and industrial chic vibe of the space... all steps from the river, outdoor patio and Ellicott City's Main Street (so many great photo opportunities)!!! I look forward to working together in the years to come!
