The Milwaukee Bride

There are so many amazing venues in Milwaukee that it makes picking just one really hard. Not only is there a lot to choose from but you can fulfill any decor wish list with the huge array of different types of venues. Milwaukee is home to halls that are chic, rustic, sporty, and traditional. The sky is the limit in this town and before this bride-to-be found her perfect venue she looked at A LOT of others. For all of you Brew City brides who have not yet set a date here is what I found.

Now I bring to you my favorite Milwaukee venues to party down at after the I Do’s have been said. Each are distinctively different and uniquely Milwaukee.

Urban Chic: Cuvee
This Champagne bar is tucked away in Milwaukee’s third ward and is packed full of charm. The walls are flanked with long windows that overlook the ward's quaint streets. Cream city brick fills every cranny, and gives the high ceilings and wood floors a rustic, industrial feel. This venue is so classy, so sophisticated and so different. And the best part? It’s still somewhat a hidden gem and since most people haven’t been here your wedding can be all new to your guests.

Classy Lake Views: Pier Wisconsin
If you are looking for a black tie affair with lake views all wrapped into a modern setting look no further then Pier Wisconsin. This is an amazing facility on the shore of Lake Michigan. It is also catered exclusively by the Bartolotta Restaurant Group which means the food is tasty too. The view alone makes this place a great find.

Sporty Sophistication: The Metavante Club
If you love the Brewers (no Cubs fans here) you will love the Metavante Club at the Brewers Stadium for your big day. This venue is not what you would expect from a baseball stadium; it is beautiful and the view is amazing. Everything in this space can be customized including a personalized message to your guests on the Jumbotron. You won’t find plastic silverware here. Glass, marble and stone create this space which is modern and sporty. You can even have the famous Klement’s Sausage Racers join you for your wedding pics!

Classic Downtown: The Grain Exchange
The Grain Exchange is a classic venue smack dab in the middle of downtown. As guests enter they are greeted by chandeliers and a beautiful staircase. The space includes a balcony that overlooks the amazing dining area where guests will nosh on Bartolotta’s Catering. You won’t feel cramped in here because the ceiling seems to be miles away and is intricately painted in a Victorian fashion. The classic paint technique continues down the walls and outlines the large windows. Traditional brides: Eat your hearts out.

Amazingness to Spare: Milwaukee Art Museum
Brides with a sky’s the limit wedding fantasy look no further, the Milwaukee Art Museum is your venue. This spectacular venue is not for the bride on a budget but every wedding I have seen here has been breathtaking. The architecture of the building alone is the only decoration needed. Amazing views make this space that much better. So if you are an artsy bride take a look.
