We had a fantastic experience working with the MEC to execute our truly magical New Years Eve wedding. The venue was beautiful and provided the warmth necessary for a very cold winter wedding in Minneapolis! Our guests traveled from NYC and Los Angeles for our wedding and nonetheless could not stop raving about the excellent food, the beauty and utility of the various spaces for the event (we used the Riverside Room for the ceremony and the reception and the newly expanded View room for a pre-wedding ceremony and the cocktail hour), and generally how smoothly everything ran. That was in large part due to the awesome work of Jamie and Wendy who helped us with all of the details big and small and who met with us to go through our menu, food item by food item, when we became worried about putting together a vegetarian wedding. In terms of decorations, used some candles on the tables but were struck by how few flowers were needed because of the great look of the Riverside and View Rooms on their own. One thing that we added at the last minute was several uplights for the ceremony (for a low cost) which helped light up our ceremony (otherwise it might have been a bit dark in the room for an evening ceremony, FYI). I got ready with my friends in the bridal suite which was a fun, spacious, and attractive spot to prepare in. We were worried that costs would balloon at the MEC (as is common in wedding planning, the initial proposed amount is generally far from the final amount) and while there was some increase, it was within what we had estimated and not beyond. The folks at MEC were conscious about our budget and helping us to stay within it. All in all, it was the perfect spot to throw our perfect wedding. I recommend it highly and without reservation!
