  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Monona Terrace last weekend. First, it all started with our awesome tour with Breanne and we were hooked! Breanne showed us around answering all the questions we had that day to make us feel like we were making a great decision to have it at the terrace. Our big day was everything and more that we could have ever wanted at the Monona Terrace. We were very surprised by how often the staff came by to ask us if we needed anything and how everything was. That was a very nice touch. We didn't have to worry about anything not being on time and fully trusted Monona Terrace. Micayla was AMAZING and a rock star. There aren't enough words to explain how helpful she was and how relaxed/at ease she was on Saturday which made me feel at ease. Micayla always answered my (many) emails right away and was thorough in her responses. Every time I asked her if I could do something, she always found a way to make it work. The food was amazing and we got nothing ... Read more

  • The Monona Terrace was a beyond perfect wedding venue! Their staff know exactly what they are doing and made our planning process and wedding day go off without a hitch. From the knowledgeable and helpful staff to the amazing food, I cannot say enough! I highly recommend the Monona Terrace to anyone looking for a wedding venue in Madison.

  • We held our wedding reception at Monona Terrace on October 28, 2017, and are very pleased with how our event turned out, as well as with all the planning leading up to it. At the outset, Breanne was helpful and no-pressure as we considered potential venues. Once we chose Monona Terrace, Marcia and her staff provided clear guidance and answered all our questions along the way. We particularly enjoyed the tasting where you get to sample all the food offerings to make your selections! Matt was very helpful finalizing all details the week of, and the night itself came off without a hitch. The service staff was attentive and friendly (they even set aside a few of each appetizer for us at the head table, a nice touch), the food was delicious (a common compliment from our guests), the room set-up was flawless, and things just ran very smoothly. Would definitely recommend!

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Terrace. They definitely know their wedding business! Micayla was our representative, and she walked us through everything very thoroughly and clearly. She didn't make us feel stupid when we had to ask questions multiple times (there's so much that goes into a wedding!). What impressed us was the way she was able to get creative to get things to fit into our budget. From switching around meals to mixing up the layout, we were able to hit our budget while still keeping high quality. The food was delicious - not what I was expecting for large batch, catered food. The venue is obviously gorgeous. The team at the Terrace also added lots of nice touches and covered things we didn't even think about (eg, saving the wedding party a plate of appetizers, small gifts as thank-you's, and clearly communicating hand-offs between workers). We highly recommend working with Micayla and the Terrace!

  • We could not have been more happy with having our cocktail hour and reception at the Monona Terrace. It seriously could not have been more of a perfect venue. All of our guests were amazed and kept mentioning that they really wanted to come visit Madison again, and we think this had a lot to do with the Monona Terrace. The cocktail hour on the roof was amazing. The reception in the Community Terrace was amazing. We were pleasantly surprised with how pampered we felt by every single staff member we encountered. Working with Breanne and Marcia was an absolute pleasure; they were definitely our most professional and responsive vendors, and we really appreciated that. We feel so lucky that we were able to hold our reception at a venue so special and so iconic of Madison.

  • So great, we do not have anything but good to say. Their staff was on point 100% of the time and in always communication with us both. I recommend them to anyone, you will be surprised the value you can get this beautiful venue at with the basic package and building your wedding from there. Be sure to book a year in advance if possible to secure your date and the best room choice.

  • The Madison Monona Terrace is one of the most scenic, historic and beautiful places to get married in the Madison, WI area. We had our ceremony and reception there and loved every minute of it! Micayla Jones was our catering manager and did a fantastic job listening to our requests and helping us through the planning process to the wedding day! She was so personable, accommodating and a pleasure to work with. All of the food at our reception from the hors d oeuvres, dinner to chocolate covered strawberries and pizza was amazing and extremely fresh! We would recommend the Monona Terrace, Micayla Jones and the rest of the Terrace staff to everyone! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all for helping us have the "best day ever!"

  • We had a fantastic experience throughout the planning process with Monona Terrace. Marcia was our coordinator, and she is extremely knowledgeable and quick with responses. She helped us revise our plans a few times and was calm, professional and patient with us throughout. The venue itself is beautiful. We were in the Grand Terrace, Hall of Ideas and the Rooftop center (with Lecture Hall as a rain back-up), and all of the areas and grounds were perfect for a wedding. We had a lot of out of town guests who loved the location right downtown on the water. The food was delicious. I heard from many people that it was the best "wedding food" they'd had. The service was also great - there was a manager there who helped take care of my little nephew by bringing him milk in a lidded cup--such great, personal service like that was common on our big day.

  • Great venue and turned out beautiful. Staff was very helpful and wanted to help make our day special. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is some minor details were missed by the staff (like setting up specific items, etc.) that were not a big deal, but can be spotted in some of our photos.

    Hi Katie, I'm happy to hear you had a beautiful day with us! Thank you for sharing your kind words. Apologies for anything that was missed during setup. Thank you for choosing Monona Terrace! Best wishes to you!

  • Loved this venue right away because of the location. Downtown Madison right on the lake; beautiful views! Service was great, from the sales manager to all the way to the day of greaters/servers. All of our guests commented on how great everything was. Would highly recommend!

  • We had our ceremony and reception at the Terrace in the Community Terrace room. It was beautiful. The view of the lake was an amazing background for the ceremony and reception. The staff was so helpful and the food was delicious. I hope to host our renewal ceremony there in the future.

  • Beautiful venue, with excellent food/drink in the heart of Madison, that has the wedding reception process down pat! Word of Advice: If planning a wedding without a wedding coordinator, expect to work extra hard to communicate with the catering sales staff to get exactly what you want on your big day!

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Monona Terrace, and we could not be happier with how it turned out. Since we were planning our wedding from out of town, it was so convenient to be able to have everything handled by a single point of contact. We were able to plan the entire wedding without visiting the venue once. Unexpectedly, the Terrace essentially provided us a day-of coordinator, Micayla Zapata. She played a crucial role in making sure our day was planned and executed flawlessly. She never made me feel like a burden no matter how many questions I asked, and I always felt as if our wedding was in good hands. She thought of everything that I didn't even know I had to think about. As for the on-site staff and servers the day of the wedding, they were incredible. We received numerous compliments from our guests about how friendly, attentive, and perceptive the staff was. They were also amazing at coordinating with our outside vendors (officiant, DJ, and photogra... Read more
