Weddings & Special Events

Bloomington is filled with beautiful sites for weddings, receptions and other special events, including events for small groups and reunions. Whether you're planning an event on the Indiana University campus, at Monroe Lake or the Monroe Convention Center, Visit Bloomington can help with a variety of complimentary services.

Planning Your Wedding

Visit Bloomington has connections to businesses, vendors, and professionals across the county, and we are happy to provide you with direction on all these topics and more:

  • Arrange hotel room blocks with special rates
  • Suggest wedding venues and places of worship
  • Recommend vendors: caterers, bakeries, wedding planners, photographers, videographers, florists, DJs, transportation, & more
  • Provide rehearsal dinner ideas
  • Advise on travel times, weather, and concurrent events
  • Provide suggestions for bridal showers and bachelor/bachelorette parties

Visit Bloomington is the ultimate information resource for your out-of-town wedding guests who may not be familiar with all that B-town has to offer. We'll provide you with visitors guides, maps and a list of events for guests to enjoy when they aren't busy with wedding-related festivities. We can also assist with creating Bloomington-themed gift baskets or welcome bags for VIP guests or members of the wedding party. If you have a large number of out of town guests, we'll even help create a customized local tour for them.

Small Groups & Reunions

If you're reuniting with family, friends, classmates or a military unit, we can help you find the meeting facilities that fit your specific needs. Girlfriends Getaway - may we suggest a B&B and a winery venue? Fraternity reunion - how about lodging on campus and a fun tailgate? We'll provide you with all the info you need to explore downtown Bloomington or get off the beaten path a bit. Don't forget to explore Bloomington's lodging options, including some very charming small inns and B&Bs.
