Why host your wedding at the DECC?

Cozy sweaters, steaming hot cocoa, crackling fireplaces, warm blankets. The holiday season is nostalgic for many and can be very romantic for couples. It is no surprise that marriage proposals most frequently fall on Christmas and New Year’s Eve, with Valentine’s Day holiday falling third in popularity. With the turning of the new year, the DECC has weddings on the brain. To best accommodate your web search, look no further than the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center as your perfect wedding venue.
