Oklahoma Memorial Union — Weddings

There's nothing that makes a statement like a formal wedding in the ornate, polished event rooms of the Gothic University of Oklahoma Memorial Union in Norman. Whether your dream wedding includes saying "I do" in an intimate brick courtyard surrounded by fountains and formal topiary or making a grand entrance in a polished ballroom before hundreds of guests, you can plan the day you've always imagined at the university's Memorial Union.

Our Wedding at the OU Memorial Union

My husband and I are still on cloud 9 after our recent reception at the Union. From the day we booked, we were assisted by the staff in planning and coordinating the big day, which was a huge help during the planning process. It was so great having everything we needed alreadythere—tables, linens, seating, catering, and a beautiful atmosphere. The food was great, the staff was professional and courteous to our guests, and the day was beautiful and ran so smoothly. We’ll forever be grateful to the Union for being the perfect place to celebrate.

Incredible Food

My husband and I had our wedding at the OU Memorial Union Ballroom on 09-30-2017. It was absolutely amazing!!!! We served guests Prime Rib as our main course. I received so many compliments on the Prime Rib, horse radish sauce and service. Cindy Smith and her wonderful catering department made all this possible. We had around 110 guests that flew in from all over Oregon, Omaha, Texas and Georgia. I can't tell you how grateful we are that we chose this venue. Thank you so much for all your hard work. This venue is worth every penny!!!!! 
Thank you, The Carsello's

Happy Groom

I do not have enough good things to say about our experience with the Oklahoma Memorial Union. The Union staff was so amazing and our wedding was absolutely the wedding we had always dreamed of having. Both our chicken and beef food options were highly praised by guests. Also, the covered garage parking turned out to be a big lifesaver since it started to rain on us. But above all, the second floor lounge and the ballroom looked INCREDIBLE! Thank you to everyone at the Union that made our special day come to life. I am one happy groom and I'm so appreciative.

Smooth Process

Having met my husband at the Oklahoma Memorial Union, this was a must for our wedding day. Our ceremony was held in the courtyard of the union-- one of my favorite spots on campus thanks to the gorgeous vines covering the walls and peacefulness the space holds. The Union staff was great to work with and helped us make sure every detail was in place. Decor required for the ceremony was minimal since the courtyard is covered in greenery and beautiful on its own. The union also has an arbor and other necessities to make the ceremony complete. Overall, the ceremony was lovely and the process was smooth. I can't recommend this venue enough for Norman weddings!
