Wedding Venues in Milwaukee, WI
Maybe you’ve always dreamed of saying “I do” in an English Country garden or the courtyard of an Italian villa, but you don’t want to put your family and friends through the expense of a trip to Europe. Don’t give up your dream just yet – the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum has and exterior reminiscent of a country estate and an interior décor resembling a Mediterranean mansion. Villa Terrace is best for small weddings as the venue only sits 80 for a formal dinner and max capacity comes in at about 120 with audience-style seating. On the downside, you’ll need to hire their exclusive bar service and get your wedding cuisine from one of Villa Terrace’s approved caterers, but they have a wide enough selection to accommodate any palate.
You’ve finally got the bling on your ring finger, but your tough guy wants nothing to do with tuxes, tulle and poofy white dresses.

That’s right, you can add some edge to your dream wedding by holding it at the Harley Davidson Museum. The vast complex that is the HD Museum means they can accommodate weddings of any size, whether your guest list has 20 names on it, or 1,000. Plus you can customize your table décor themes and catering menu to create an event that expresses the pair of you to perfection.

Whether you’re marrying a soldier, a veteran or a patriotic civilian, salute their service to the country by holding your wedding ceremony at the War Memorial Center. Erected as a testament to those that have fallen on the field of battle, the War Memorial’s modern architecture takes full advantage of its breathtaking views of downtown Milwaukee and Lake Michigan’s shoreline. Exchange vows while overlooking the water with an outdoor ceremony and reception on the center’s Fitch Plaza -- which has a capacity of over 800 guests. Indoor weddings can still take advantage of the views through the War Memorial’s floor-to-ceiling windows. Interior facilities can accommodate over 250 guests for both dinner and dancing.
Step back in time on your special day with a wedding at the turn-of-the-century 1451 Renaissance Place.

The venue is ideally suited to weddings for under 250 people, but the facility can make special arrangements to handle larger celebrations for up to 600 guests. Renaissance Place perfectly designed for transitioning easily from your ceremony to your reception, plus you’re free to bring in any caterer or other vendor you desire. Not much of a party planner?
