    Really no complaints that I can think of!!!

    Brenda was great in helping us prepare and plan the event. The catering staff and hotel staff were easy to work with . The whole staff that evening was fun and cordial and wanted to make the wedding just how we wanted. They went out of their way to help accommodate any issues they arose. They paid very close attention to all the details and worked well with our DJ to keep everything moving on schedule! The venue itself was beautiful and we received nothing but compliments!

    Arrowwood took all of the stress and worry out of the most important day of my life. It is worth every penny to have someone coordinating the details you may forget about, thinking of things before you do, and just ensuring everything goes as smooth as possible. A lot of people think that paying for a wedding coordinator is too much, but Arrowwood is truly all inclusive, and if you are going to splurge on something, having someone to help you coordinate is MORE than worth it. Our day was THE most fun we have ever had. We wish we could re-live the day over and over, and that wouldn't have been possible without Jonalee and her team! THANK YOU :)

    We had our wedding reception at the Arrowwood in the Wimbledon room in October 2016. Jonalee is the wedding coordinator and did an AMAZING job. We have a handful of family members that are vegan and she accommodated to them no problem at all! She is simply amazing, as is the beautiful venue!

Arrowwood Resort and Conference Center is one of the top venues in NW Iowa for weddings for a variety of reasons. First of all, they have a variety of spaces to suit any size of reception. Secondly, they have an amazing staff that really caters to the needs of their clients. I was so impressed at a recent wedding to find that the Arrowwood staff was providing table service to the head table so that the bridesmaids and groomsmen (and bride and groom) did not have to stand in line at the bar to get a drink. Outstanding!
