    Iconic location, fantastic staff, unforgettable experience!

    Having our wedding at the Memorial Union was a dream come true for me, a UW-Madison alumni! We were lucky to have Trip Commons, which is a stunning, classic space that needs minimal decorating. The Union Events staff was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. They hosted fantastic tastings and worked with us to meet all dietary restrictions, including me, the bride who is gluten free. Chris and Billie in particular were incredibly professional and helpful from planning to day-of needs.

    The food was excellent — many of our guests commented on how delicious their meals were. Moreover, we attended weddings the weekend before/after ours, and we both felt the Union provided the best meal options on both quality and quantity of food.

    If you’re lucky to get chosen in the lottery, the venue, staff and food will not disappoint!

    Wonderful venue!

    We absolutely loved working with the Wisconsin Union. My husband and I are both alumni and the Memorial Union was the best wedding venue we could have asked for. Everything was set up the way we wanted, on-time, and well done. We did both our ceremony and reception in the same space and they switched the space over quickly and easily between the ceremony and reception. Hattie was wonderful to work with in the planning process and made things easy to understand. Also the views you get from the terrace are unlike anything else. All of our visiting families and friends were in awe! Couldn't recommend it enough!

    Wedding at Memorial Union

    Our wedding in Tripp Commons at Memorial Union was absolutely magical! The venue was awesome and the staff working the event went out of their way to make it a great night. Our event coordinator made sure everything went smoothly, was organized and communicated with us about our preferences, which made the whole planning experience feel manageable. The bartenders were fun and the waitstaff efficient...food was excellent and you cannot beat the views and location! We LOVED having our wedding here!
