Best Wedding Venues in Kansas City, Missouri

Congratulations on your big engagement! This is such an exciting time in your life. So many firsts, and what comes with that is venue shopping. It can seem daunting at first, choosing the perfect place to get tie the knot. Which venues are better than others? It comes down to 1 thing, what venue is best for you. Let's take a look at some of our favorite event and wedding venues in Kansas City and surrounding areas.

You have your day mostly visualized. Your dress, your bouquet, probably even the grooms attire. But where will this all take place? What does your perfect venue look like? What exactly do you prefer? This is the best time to sit down and get out a notepad.. You'll be here for awhile. Make a list of things that are necessary and not so necessary. If you find a venue that also accommodates the not so necessary, then that's just a bonus.

As heinous as it sounds, it's extremely important to notate your underlying expectations. This will help not only find the perfect venue, but to also ensure you both are on the same page. After all, no one knows what you want better than you.

Who knows, you might have had the perfect place in mind all this time and now it doesn't fit your expectations, and that's okay! Some of these venues offer rehearsal dinners, while other may not. This is your wedding, your elegant wedding. Maybe you prefer Shoal Creek golf course over local country clubs or the Simpson house over Crossroads Art District. Do you prefer city wedding venues over country wedding venues? Maybe what's most important is having a nearby Holiday Inn for family members and friends to stay in in downtown Kansas City. Knowing these things will help you narrow down your search.

Here are our Top 5 Favorite Venues in the Metro Kansas City, Missouri Area. These venues all offer something slightly different but all have 1 thing in common: The absolutely adore their brides.
