  • Seyaye and her team were so great to work with and provided top notch service throughout the entire process of our wedding planning. The venue was amazing for both the cocktail hour outdoors and the reception portion inside. We had to deal with some major obstacles the day of and Seyaye helped guide us through our problem and acted quickly to give us a great solution! We cannot thank her and her team enough and highly recommend the War Memorial Center for any wedding or event.

  • My husband and I were very impressed with our initial visit to the property and decided to sign immediately. We loved the esthetic of the reception space and the added feature of the built-in uplighting. Jennifer was the event planner we worked with and she was very helpful throughout the process. Planning a wedding during COVID was very stressful and she worked to keep us informed of any changes as they came about. I would note that this venue is one of the most affordable options in the downtown Milwaukee area based on the research I completed. We paid $3,700 plus tax for a Saturday evening rental. We did not take the option to buy parking for our guests.

  • We are so blessed we found The War Memorial. The moment my fiancé (now husband!) and I toured War Memorial, we knew it was the perfect venue for our reception. The terrace is everything- you have so many amazing views- the lake, Art Museum, the city, the marina- and is a perfect spot for cocktail hour and/or pictures. We did our first dance with sparklers on the terrace and it was a dream come true! The Memorial Hall where dinner and dancing took place is also an amazing, wonderful space to make your wedding vision come to life! They set the lighting to whatever color you would like and it really adds to the "feel" of your special day. I highly recommend War Memorial! It is a hidden secret that I wish more couples knew about. The staff was also a pleasure to work with and another main reason we fell in love with War Memorial. Jennifer answered all our questions and felt like a friend when giving us a tour of the space. We had to postpone our wedding back in March (scheduled for an Ap... Read more

  • The War Memorial was the perfect spot for our wedding. Jennifer was very responsive and flexible with changing plans last minute when it rained on our wedding day. Everything turned out amazing, and the venue was everything we could have ever wanted for our big day!

  • Secretly the best wedding venue on the lakefront! We were looking for a venue that was downtown, on the lakefront, with indoor and outdoor spaces, big enough to hold all 250 of our guests, parking - and in our budget. I didn't think we could find something like that, but the War Memorial Center checked every box and more! The building's architecture is modern and unique. The venue has multiple spaces, and the entire center is reserved for your event! The outdoor plaza is huge and great for cocktail hour since it has the best views of the Milwaukee skyline hands down. The reception hall has been recently renovated and is modern with wood and gold accents, gold chandeliers, built in uplighting - just gorgeous. Tables and chairs are included and they do set up and take down for you! There is a separate, secure suite available to store your valuables and gifts during the wedding. Also, there is parking available for your guests if you need it (which is hard to come by downtown!). The event... Read more

  • Having our wedding at the war memorial was the best decision we made with our wedding planning. Every. Single. Guest. we talked to was amazed by the venue, and having the ability to walk outside on the terrace overlooking the lake was something everyone loved. So many guests who'd never been to Milwaukee before were amazed with how beautiful it was, I think the venue helped them see that.

  • This was the perfect venue. We did the wedding and reception right there, which made it so easy to transition and people didn't have to leave. The backdrop is perfect for pictures. The scenic views create a great backdrop no matter where you're standing. There was plenty of space to bring the dinner in doors at the last minute. They were able to make the change without any issue, appreciated the flexibility. People are still talking about the perfect space!

  • This venue is incredible! It is perfect for a summer wedding given the very large outside space. You basically get two spaces for the price of one. We had a significant number of kids at our wedding and they were able to release their energy outside without being in the way. The views are beautiful and nothing beats the location. We had our wedding during the 1st weekend of Summerfest and our guests had no issues with parking. We received so many compliments on our venue. Pictures don’t do it justice, you need to go visit in person!

  • Our wedding at the War Memorial was amazing! The space is wonderful for an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. The team also took care of our set-up and take-down, which took so much stress off of us and our families. It was an awesome day!

  • Absolutely no regrets going with War Memorial! We ended up having our ceremony & reception on site (which our guests really appreciated) and they made the whole process a breeze! Jennifer was our contact throughout the process and she was fantastic to work with! She was always very responsive when we had questions, always had plenty of time if we needed to meet & ensured that our day went smoothly. The reception hall was recently renovated in the summer and it looked absolutely GORGEOUS for our big day! Very spacious & the colored lighting they set up for us made the room look amazing. We got (and are still getting) so many compliments on how much they loved our venue. Being able to have our wedding all in one location was fantastic & we were extremely happy with our decision. Would definitely recommend !

  • We had our wedding reception here and it was better than we thought it would be! Our guests loved it too! The outdoor space is incredible and such a good way to kick off the night. The staff was great and the venue is so beautiful by its self there is no need to worry about a lot of decorating! The location is also great because it is so central. It is also really fun if you want to walk to the bars after the reception (Like we did!) it was also great for pictures because we didn't haven't to drive around the city, there were so many backdrops right on sight!

  • When we first began planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted to have it held at the Milwaukee County War Memorial simply because military has been a huge part of our family's life and the views were unbeatable. This was just the tip of the iceberg! From the beginning, Jennifer was prompt with any inquiring that we had and went above and beyond. Fast-forward to the day of... again, Jennifer was so helpful with accommodating all of our requests and her assistant, Joy, was literally the best to work with throughout the day. Everything went absolutely flawless, minus some annoying rain, but they worked around and through it. The evening was absolutely perfect-more than we could have ever hoped for! We got so many compliments on the professionalism of the staff and how beautiful the venue was. Thank you for making our day so wonderful!

  • The Milwaukee County War Memorial was a beautiful location for my reception! My guests were amazed at how beautiful is was there! Jennifer was very responsive for planning my wedding and accommodated any changes we had. There were a few things that didn't go right the day of that were a little troubling though. The placement of the tables I had were not in the right order. I had reserved seating for 3 tables and they reserved 4 so one whole table was empty because my guests were confused. The table that was empty was supposed to be where my close family sat directly to my left. The coordinater said she didn't get the floor plan seating from Jennifer so she didn't know. It did work out though, so it was all good. The PowerPoint for our slideshows were not working so my groom and one of my groomsmen went to fix it before dinner, so dinner was a bit behind due to technical difficulties. Other than those 2 things, really it was a nice venue to host my wedding at! ❤ I would highly recomm... Read more
