Celebrating your wedding should be an unforgettable moment in your life. You deserve the perfect wedding venue, one that lifts you up, makes you feel extraordinary on your special day and can host all of your wonderful friends and family who are there to celebrate with you. As one of the top wedding venues in the Twin Cities, Banquets of Minnesota has created hundreds of perfect wedding days, so we know what it takes to make wedding dreams come true.

If you are currently in the midst of planning the happiest day of your life, we can help you choose the perfect venue.


Remember Your Budget

Budget is an important factor to check when planning your wedding venue. You can make a beautiful day, whether throwing a backyard reception or a lavish ballroom bash. But staying within your budget ensures you can enjoy marital bliss after your happy day is complete.

One of the best ways to get the most from your budget is to look for wedding packages from experienced venues. Banquets of Minnesota, for example, offers on-site ceremonies, a seamless transition into the reception, gourmet quality catering services, and a preferred vendor list that can help you save money compared to sourcing each wedding service separately so that you can afford your memorable day in a more glamorous space.


Choose a Venue That Aligns With Your Vision

What do you imagine your wedding ceremony and/or reception looking like? What kind of experiences and memories do you want to create? The wedding venue you choose should align with the vision of the day you are planning.

Some wedding venues are more formal, some are casual, and some are festive. You may want a ballroom but want to avoid holding your wedding in a hotel.

Banquets of Minnesota has two beautiful ballrooms ready to be customized to your personal vision. You may fall in love with the integral lit ceiling draperies, discover perfection in our wedding arbor, or completely recreate the space with your own décor. Choosing a wedding venue that aligns with your vision will make that vision come true.


Think About What Is Included

We mentioned earlier that package deals are a good way to stick to your budget, and it’s true. But they also play an important role in the experience you create. Consider what is included in the wedding package for every venue you consider. Some venues only include the space in your rental and all other services must be found eternally, some have a number of wedding service partners to choose from, and some prefer to keep all operations in-house.

At Banquets of Minnesota, all catering comes through our banquet hall. In addition, we provide a list of partners you can choose from for things like decorations, DJs, hair and makeup, and more! We can help you build the perfect wedding to bring everything you love together into one amazing day.


Consider Your Guests’ Experience

Lastly, build an experience that is complete for your guests. This is especially true for those who travel to be there. Banquets of Minnesota can help you make arrangements with local hotels to ensure that everyone will have a comfortable and nearby place to stay and even help with the logistics to get everyone to and from your wedding venue on time. We know how important it is to ensure that everyone who wants to be there for you can be.

In addition to hotel considerations, Banquets of Minnesota can help you plan for any food allergies or special accommodations, handicap accessibility, and smart timing for your photography. These little things make a big difference in how guests experience your big day.
