Rochester Minnesota

My fiance and I attend school in Florida but are orginially from MN and both of our families still reside there so we are having the wedding in Rochester Minnesota. If anyone has any suggestions of places in Rochester or near Rochester that take care of a lot of the details (venue,food, drink, linens, etc) I would really appreciate it. I am trying to find a place that will take care of most of my needs, it has been very stressful planning in another state!

    Sorry I can't help, but the Minneapolis board is much more active. You might get more responses there.

    I am very near rochester!  I think the Mayo Civic  Center does that but it is pretty expensive. I had my reception at Events in Kasson and the hall, food, linens and dishes are through them.  It is always set up with the tulle and lights so decorating is a minimum.  Just make sure you get everything in writing because he can be slightly sketchy at times.  Let me know if you want to know anythig else about any vendors in rochester

    I'm also from the Rochester area and am getting married in the area.  When I was looking for places and helping a girlfriend look for venues, we came across a few that take care of A LOT.  Basically, any place that has their own catering and an in-house wedding/events planner.  So Somerby Country Club in Byron, or any of the hotels in downtown Rochester (Kahler is especially nice).  You'll have more challenges if you try to do a venue that isn't experienced doing LOTS of weddings.

    One other thing you might think about since you're planning out of state (I am in the same boat - but thankfully my mom has been all over doing a lot of the legwork for me) is finding a wedding coordinator.  I don't know if that's in your budget, but if you're looking for a more unique location or anything, a coordinator in Rochester could save you a lot of stress!

    I heard Byron was really nice.  I know you could do the wedding outdoors there and reception inside too.  Or just a reception

    I have lived in Rochester, MN my whole life and I would suggest the Rochester Art Center.  It is located within the Mayo Civic center and it beautiful!  Other options would be The Rochester Event Center (by the airport), La Quinta Inn, Doubletree Hotel, The Plummer House.

    You will find something!

    I am having my wedding reception at La Quinta Inn. Their prices are VERY reasonable compared to other places in town, and they don't nickel and dime you to death on things, most things are included in the price of the room rental.
