We chose Tripp Commons in Memorial Union for our ceremony and reception because the space conjures so many wonderful memories for us. I would recommend this space for anyone who went to UW-so many guests felt such great nostalgia...it was great! The catering staff is professional and has a good sense of what you should order because they host so many events. This was an important feature for me when I was thinking about wedding venues in downtown Madison. We got married here in February and we were able to choose our wedding date and location without any problem. It is more competitive in the summer months because there is a lottery system. I have attended a wedding in Tripp Commons in August and it was a fantastic event too.
EXCELLENT RECEPTION LOCATION!! Fabulous staff! Stephen Lucas and his interns are incredible to work with! The Great Hall is beautiful with out any additional decoration! There is a great dance floor, excellent space for cocktails. Everything is set up for you. Everyone is so kind, patient, and helpful! I would absolutely get married in the Great Hall again!
Beautiful for a Wedding Reception.
Also you have a deck that overlooks the terrist and the lake. In the summer time there is always a band outside playing. Natty Nation was playing the night of our wedding! AWSOME
Memorial Union has such a great location! It's got a view with the lakes and great personality because it's a favorite local hangout. The Great Hall is gorgeous and spacious.
