Best wedding venue in Omaha

I had my wedding at The Woolworth and it was absolutely amazing, the first time I walked into the space I knew I would have my wedding there! The open windows give you all the natural lighting for amazing photos and you are right in the heart of downtown so every hotel is within walking distance which makes it so convenient for your guests. It is such a unique venue and there truly isn't anything else like it in Omaha. I worked with Kevin and Ellen, and they were always so accommodating with all of my questions and were always willing to help with anything! This venue is 10/10 and I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!

Had the best wedding reception at The Woolworth

The Woolworth is a new venue in Omaha, right in the heart of the Old Market. I loved the elegant, yet historic, charming and industrial feel of the venue and of course, the fact that it is right in the center of the Old Market. I highly recommend booking your wedding reception here! A large portion of our guests flew in or had never been to Omaha before, so we loved that we were able to have our wedding in what we consider to be the best part of Omaha :) In picking a newer venue, we did experience a few obstacles as far as confirming protocols, pricing, etc., that simply hadn't come up before because it was new, but the team at The Woolworth was responsive, flexible and easy to work with, which solved any questions we had. Brides: The preferred vendors (food & entertainment) you're able to use are excellent. We originally wanted a venue that allowed outside vendors for food and beverage, but using The Woolworth's food, beverage and entertainment vendors ensured everything was seamless, and everything was handled by the vendor folks--no need to rally guests or hire additional services to set up and tear down food set-up. I'm so glad we went this route! One less thing for you to think/worry about. We also had some of our wedding party stay in the Woolworth Lofts, above the venue, which was super convenient. In summary, if you want a wedding reception venue that's beautiful, unique, historic, in the center of "it all" and work with helpful staff--book your wedding reception at The Woolworth.

Beautiful Venue, Unparalleled Location, Attentive and Communicative Staff,

A piece of advice that is constantly given out when you are planning a wedding is "something is always going to go wrong, just roll with it and continue on". This might be true about other items in the wedding, but the Woolworth and its staff does an excellent job making sure that nothing goes wrong when it relates to the venue and bar. Elle, Kevin, and everyone at the Woolworth understands that your wedding is a truly once in a life occasion and they make sure that everything goes well in the planning, and the execution of the big day. It goes without saying the venue itself is beautiful, and the location makes it one of the most desirable places in Omaha to get married.
