We know it’s a huge decision to choose a venue for the most important day of your life. We help brides and grooms plan the weddings of their dreams all the time. We make it easy by providing a beautiful venue, an experienced Event Coordinator, convenient on-site catering, and more.

Save Money When Booking Your Wedding with Us:

If you can guarantee a certain amount of guests based on the room you choose for your wedding event with full meal service, we waive the room rental fee and you only pay the deposit/setup fee. *Please note if the room is carpet, we require a dance floor at an additional cost.

The Trade Center has a number of beautiful venue locations. We will help create the perfect wedding to accommodate your guests and budget.
