Beautiful and Affordable South Bend Wedding Venue Option

Couples living in and around South Bend, Indiana, have a few traditional wedding venue options, like the highly coveted Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame, but that requires a high-stakes waiting list and years of planning. The Allure Modern Elegance offers a luxurious, modern take on traditional indoor weddings without the Notre Dame wait. Our ballroom features mirrors, a stunning patterned floor, ample lighting options and the stunning grand entrance staircase, but far more available wedding dates each year AND more affordable pricing. Taxes, staffing and service fees are built into all of our package prices, so you don’t have to worry about surprise costs. 

Wedding Ceremony and Reception Amenities At The Allure

When you reserve your wedding day at The Allure Modern Elegance, you receive exclusive use of our facility, an expertly catered menu and a champagne toast for all guests (non-alcoholic available, too!), set-up and tear-down, a security guard, classy floor length tablecloths along with colored overlay and napkin, and a free tasting for the couple as part of the planning process, among other amenities. Our classic exterior offers great photo opportunities for the couple and wedding party, and directly across the street is the sweet La Porte Little Theatre, a community theatre that’s been in this location since the 1950s, offering an extra outdoor photo backdrop.
