Congratulations! You’re engaged!
And you’re off and running on the planning portion of your special day. A quick search and you’re probably overwhelmed at the number of Norman and Oklahoma City wedding venues available.
There’s so much to compare and so many unknowns, and you could spend every weekend from now until your wedding checking out all the choices and still not be any closer to knowing which is the best wedding venue for your special day.
Don’t worry because we’re here to help. You want your wedding to be special, memorable, and everything you dreamed it would be. Your wedding venue is a big piece of that, so we made a list of the best in Norman OK and the greater Oklahoma City area.
We don’t want to toot our own horn (or maybe we do), but Montford Inn in Norman OK is a fantastic venue for intimate weddings and elopements. Our uniquely and thoughtfully designed bed and breakfast with eight guest rooms and six cottage suites.
Featuring beautiful gardens, our inn creates a small, private setting for your wedding. Consider hosting your wedding in one of the gardens with a charming cottage serving as the focal point for your special day.
Alternatively, utilize the stunning lobby for both the ceremony and reception. The options are endless, and we take great pleasure in collaborating with couples to bring their dream event to life.
We were looking for a venue for our small wedding (15-20 people). We found the Montford Inn online and decided to book the Hidden Hollow Cottage. We loved the idea of having a private cottage with the B&B feel. The staff at the Inn were wonderful and very accommodating to our needs. Our photographer showed up early (before check in time) and they let her into the cottage before we arrived so she was able to test lighting before we even got there.

Or, you can have your ceremony and reception outdoors with cocktail hour on the outdoor patio. Plus, you’ll have access to the bridal suite and groom’s man cave to get ready in.

One of the most beautiful chapels and wedding venues in Norman OK, Thunderbird Chapel was built specifically to host weddings.

This museum is one of the most unique and elegant wedding venues in Oklahoma, featuring beautiful spaces of all sizes — small to large — to accommodate the number of people in your wedding party and guest list.
Drinking cocktails in the shadow of a bronze mammoth will certainly make an impression on your guests and make unforgettable memories.

Hosting concerts, stand-up comics, and more throughout the year, The Depot is the ultimate event venue in Norman. Once the Santa Fe Depot, this historic landmark became a performing arts studio in 2003 and has been hosting events of all kinds ever since, including weddings.
Renting the facility gives you access to a small kitchenette and two rooms, which are quaint for getting glammed up for your big day. There’s a front brick area that can be expanded into the outdoors, a covered portico, and a grassy space on the north side — all of which can be used for the ceremony, photos, and reception.
