We got married in the West Circle... The biggest downfall is that the view looking back at the bride/wedding party walking down the aisle is that there are bathrooms back there. Monona Terrace does not provide a screen to cover that up. We rented our own, but it was too windy for it to stand up.

Monona Terrace provided a water station which was very nice.

Day of coordination was fantastic. Location in stunning.

I didn't like the additional charge for the dance floor, it would have been nice if it were included.

About half of the food at the tasting was terrible... so be sure to go and taste all of the food. We ended up with a fantastic meal and snacks, but I was nervous.

We were unable to get a room with windows, but the Hall of Ideas ended up working with much decoration by friends and family. We hung 100 photos of past gatherings all over the walls so guests had something to look at between dinner and dancing. The food really was not good. The wine selection was okay. The University Club may have been better, but was not available when we needed it. On the actual wedding day, the staff was excellent! If you have your reception here, stay at the Hilton and pay the $15 to get your gifts carried to your room so no one else has to do it. It's connected to the Hilton which is also very convenient.

A short walk up the hill from the Ruby Marie, be sure to visit this modern landmark. Definitely take in the roof views and the main room on the second floor with the gorgeous windows! There is a cafe inside, but we've never eaten in it.

We were very happy with our loctaion, roof deck ceremony and reception in the Community room. The views from the Terrace are amazing, as a Madison native standing between the Capitol and Lake Monona was the perfect setting. The Terrace is a beautiful building which is easy to get to for guests and the experienced catering staff makes the whole process easy.
