“Fabulous For Wedding Receptions!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I just returned from South Bend, working at the Century Center as photographer for a wedding reception. If you have a creative mind, you can easily transform this space into a gorgeous place. The two story high glass wall is just beautiful in daylight or at night. There are a ton of white lights that dangle from the ceiling, casting a glow on everyone below. The staff that I interacted with were all helpful and pleasant, and the food was great. The restrooms were very modern and clean. As it connects to the Double Tree, the entire wedding party and guests alike were happy to have the sky bridge to keep them out of the cold. The whole place is very spacious; this is so nice to have as a photographer! Hire a band and rock out!

“Nothing too fancy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Ok, so South Bend isn't Chicago. I've been to a bunch of events at the Century Center. The river view is pretty nice, but the place could use a bit of an overhaul.
