Our Reception was held at the Memorial Union, in the Main Lounge. Instead of a plated dinner, we had a large variety of hors'dourves. Food was B+ for a good price. We had two kegs on hand of quality Wisconsin brews, as well as wine. The standard wine list is a little limited, but anything is available via special order. We ordered from the standard list, and the wine as respectable. Service was excellent. In addition to Cake, we had Babcock Icecream served with the Cake, which was a big hit.

Prior to the date, we had three meetings with the host and catering director, including a tasting of a large variety of potential items.

The staff went out of their way to ensure that all of our needs and desires were met or exceeded. I would definitely suggest the Memorial Union for any UW Alumni.

Be aware, though, that the Union is in high demand, and books 18 months in advance - often through a lottery system during the busiest months. Plan far ahead!

The wedding was beautiful, and the wedding planner was very helpful. The only bad thing was the cost of alcohol. Our guests loved the setting, and the food was tasty.

The Memorial Union is a fantastic place for a reception. The food and service were fantastic. The food and bar options will fit any budget. The only downsides are the additional fees for setting up outside linens/chairs, etc and the 18 month advance booking date. They are pretty flexible with the set-up fees, we had our coordinator do most of it to save us the money.
