The best choice in venue is the Chateau Event Center!!!
The PERFECT Bozeman venue
We were a couple on a budget, and The Chateau provided very affordable weekday rates. We chose to host a Brunch wedding on a Monday, and I can't tell you how many of our guests (and of course ourselves) thought it was such a fun and unique idea. The venue is stunning, and has all of the amenities that you would hope for-- from bride and groom suites for getting ready, separate catering room for vendors, chair & table set up and break down included, the list goes on. Whitney worked with us every step of the way and was so kind and accommodating. Anytime we had a question a very prompt and thorough reply would follow.
We could not have gotten any luckier with early October weather. The leaves were changing, the sun was out and the temperature was right around 70 degrees. BUT- given Montana weather can be unpredictable, we loved the safety net of being able to host all festivities inside and still exchange vows in a beautiful setting.
I could not recommend Whitney & The Chateau enough!
