MICC was a great venue for our wedding. They worked with us when we needed to change some times, etc. They do rent by the hour which can be pricey considering all you get is the room, table, and chairs but that's the case with most vendors. Be careful on reading fine print for fees so you're not surprised. It was a beautiful building with great views which was perfect for showing off the area to our guests who were almost all from out of state. The groomsmen got dressed there and I think really enjoyed the space. The staff was really great and responsive.Sent on 09/22/2014

We had our wedding ceremony and reception in the Mercer Room. We also rented the kitchen and one of the meeting rooms to serve as the bridal room. Price is per hour, so it can add up. They also charge a refundable $400 deposit, of which we got $350 back. They must've come up with some reason to keep $50 for themselves.Sent on 10/26/2016
Our wedding was an early afternoon wedding, so we booked the Mercer Room from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., allowing about 3.5-4 hours total for setup and cleanup.
The staff was good at answering my questions via email and phone. However, they neglected to inform me that all vendors are required to get a Mercer Island business license until three days before the wedding. I knew that all vendors had to have business licenses because I read the rental information packet and any other information available for MICEC. I had to ask if the business license needed to a Washington state business license or one specifically for the city of Mercer Island. It's the latter because MICEC is a government facility, part of the city. My vendors had to scramble last minute for their Mercer Island business licenses, and I had unnecessary additional stress just three days before my wedding. For that, I'm taking off one star.
Overall, I'm glad we had our wedding here. I'm glad to be married and that all the wedding planning and coordination is over!
Where else can you find a sunset location at a city facility rate? Only a few places in Seattle, but none have the clean, professional, and high end look of the Mercer Island Event Center. A helpful staff from start to finish, you can have a gorgeous event!
Always enjoyed having events at the Mercer Island Community Center! Very friendly people, beautiful new building, and affordable!
Very versatile event center with a terrific staff.
