“I had my wedding here recently and I am so glad I chose Monterey Dance and Event Center! First of all, space is gorgeous! It has a disco ball on the ceiling that adds nice ambiance along with mirrors, a grand piano (which was tuned if you know how to play or want to hire a pianist), a TV in the lobby where you can do a photo montage (just pop it on a USB and you're good) and a cute lobby/outside area. A few things that I found rare in the Monterey area and super awesome about this space: -They have an adorable bridal room with private bathroom for the bride (look at the photos on their website, so cute! White furniture, beautiful mirror, etc.) -The venue came with 75 gold Chiavari chairs (this is crazy as usually those totally cost to rent) -They have a gobo they can project on the wall with a little bride and groom that say congratulations -The rental comes with a dance lesson which was super fun and amazing- I mean obviously they are a dance studio so of course the lesson was first class. Hehe. -Here's the most unbelievable one I found: THEY DON'T CHARGE CORKAGE!!!! You can bring in your own alcohol and bring in your own caterer, no worries!!!! Other than the beautiful decor, I think for sure that was the thing that sold me on the venue!! -Beyond the reasons above, I thought they were certainly the most reasonably priced space I found from my research (things get crazy expensive getting married in the Monterey area, I learned very quickly) Day of, we were blown away. Everything looked perfect and several of the guests raved about the elegance of the space. Five stars!! Thank you for making our wedding day perfect. I'm so grateful and glad we chose this space!”

“We had our wedding reception here in September and it worked perfectly for us. Even with our minimal decorations, space looked beautiful because of the awesome up-lighting setup they have (you can even choose a color theme for the lights). My wife has a background in musicals and theater. She was very excited that space was once a theater itself and you can tell by the wonderful acoustics. Suffice to say our toasts sounded great and we hardly needed a microphone. And our DJ sounded amazing! Michell surprised us and was the first to greet us when we arrived at the reception. We heard nothing but sweet things about her help and interactions with our guest all evening! Thanks again for all your help in our planning and setup. Our day was the best!!!”

“We attended a wedding here in early September. The venue was beautiful. The perfect mix of cozy and elegant. The staff was welcoming, friendly and attentive. We would definitely recommend friends or family to Monterey Dance & Event Center for their special days. ”
