The Historic Eau Claire Masonic Ballroom
Planning Your Event

Now that you have "choosing a venue" checked off your list, it's time to make decisions regarding the food, beverages, music, decorations, etc. To make your wedding planning as easy as possible, we've broken the process down to four simple steps:

Eau Claire Wedding Event Planning Process:

Wedding Planning - Step 1

Call 715.456.2466 or email to schedule a meeting with us to sign the contract and make your initial deposit.


Bring your calendar! We will need to know the date of your event and schedule our future meetings.

Your date is held for 10 days before the contract and first deposit are due. The first deposit secures rental in the amount of the rental plus sales tax.

Wedding Planning - Step 2

Select your caterer and contact them to make your selections.

We ask that you complete this step within 60 days of submitting your contract to be sure your first choice is available.

Choose from the following caterers for your wedding reception:

  • KP Katering
  • Premiere Events & Catering

Wedding Planning - Step 3

Schedule your major planning meeting with us for two months before your wedding.

This meeting outlines all the important details. Your second deposit is also due at this time.

You are the architect of your event. We can make suggestions and let you know what other couples have done, but the decisions are yours.

Get excited — the hard part is over!

Wedding Planning - Step 4

Schedule your final meeting for two weeks before your big day.

All there is left to do is provide some final details and finishing touches. Start enjoying yourself because your wedding is now only two weeks away...woohoo!

At this meeting, all we need is:

  • Final Guest Count
  • Final Layout
  • Third Payment
