I was wondering if anyone recently married has any good suggestions on where to hold a reception in Waterloo. And if you know of the prices. All I know of are Heckerdome, Fireside, Turner Hall...and that's pretty much it.

The VFW still handles parties and probably weddings. The Falls does a good job but they are a little higher priced. I was at a wedding at the hecker dome last year and it went very well. food was good plenty of room for dancing.

The Falls isn't bad. Most people think it's pricey but it's really not. It includes everything. The DJ, dance floor, food, open bar, linens, center pieces, cake, all setup and takedown, and server service. My wife ended up choosing The Falls because it was cheaper than renting a hall and doing everything ourselves.

I had my reception at fireside and I loved it the owners are super easy to deal with and the food was great! We had about the same that you are having and it was perfect!

I agree with Fireside. Very reasonable and willing to work with your budget.

I have to work during the week so I can't do those bridal shows, but thanks a bunch for everyone's input. I'm not from Waterloo, my fiance is, and you know how it is if you leave it up to the guy to get information :) Thanks everyone!!!

They are held in the evenings, not during the day.

The top floor at Gallagher's restaurant on Mill Street has a large room for receptions. I attended a reception there a couple of years ago and it went well. Good food.
