    One of the Best Deals in Des Moines!

    Choosing a reception venue is so important and can be so taxing - but after my first meeting with Nick @ Forte I knew that my wedding would go smoothly. They are so helpful through the entire process and want to make the day perfect for their couples. They have a very competitive price for being in the heart of Downtown Des Moines - considering it includes set up, tear down, linens, real plates & silverware. The food is to die for and we received tons of compliments from guests. There was nothing reserved for the weekend of our wedding so we were able to set up on Friday morning before rehearsal. Everything went perfectly and we would choose Forte over and over again!

    Stress free planning with great results!

    Nick and the staff at Forte made for an easy planning process in my dream wedding! The venue has a beautiful view of downtown Des Moines and the proximity to the hotels was a huge benefit to our guests. We received many compliments about the food and service found at Forte! I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
