Plenty of time to decorate

Decorate the way you want. You can come in to decorate in the morning the day of your event, or even the night before if there is no other event booked at that time. No extra charge for your decorating time.


Our Blue Moon Ballroom staff will be available throughout your event to set up, move, and tear down your reception. 

One of Rochester's "hidden gems"

stage 1.jpg

When looking for a wedding-venue-rochester-mn you want a venue that is private. Your wedding is the only event taking place at our location which means you will have a completely private event. There won't be any "blending" of music with a nearby band, drunks from a nearby event won't be crashing your party. The bar is completely private and caters only to you. 

Bar Service with "Tavern 22"

The alcohol/bar service at the Blue Moon is permitted exclusively through "Tavern 22". They are very affordable, professional and reliable.

You don't have to worry about the set up and tear down on your special day. Our Blue Moon staff will do all the setting up of the tables and chairs with the table linens and table skirting on head and cake tables. You won't have to come back the next day to tear down and cleanup. We do all of that for you as well!

This is just one more benefit you get when choosing the Blue Moon Ballroom as your wedding reception venue in Rochester, MN.
