    I had my ceremony and reception at Old World WI and everything went so smoothly thanks to Bob, Amy, and the rest of the staff. We were planning on having the ceremony and cocktail hour outside, and 2 days before had to rearrange our plans and have everything inside. Everyone was very accommodating and flexible. Thank you Bob and Amy! I had the perfect wedding day!

    We absolutely loved having our reception at old world wisconsin! Bob was fantastic to work with, along with the whole rest of the staff (and Amy and her bar crew). The venue is gorgeous and perfect for our rustic burlap and lace wedding... And so affordable to rent out!
