Best Wedding Venue!
I can't say enough great things about Glen Oaks! We had originally booked with another country club in Des Moines and with the pandemic things were not being communicated well and we decided to go a different route. THANK GOD Glen Oaks had the availability on our wedding date as we had already booked all of our vendors!!! They did a fantastic job with our wedding especially with switching to Glen Oaks a couple months before our reception. The venue is beautiful, the food was excellent (all our guests were raving about the food especially the parmesan risotto :)), and the service from the staff was incredible! We also loved that we were able to great ready there! It made it so convenient for me and my bridesmaids and we had breakfast and lunch there. Honestly one of the best parts about Glen Oaks is working with their event coordinator, Emily. She made wedding planning a million times easier, especially during a pandemic. She was super responsive to everything, easy to get ahold of, organized, and extremely knowledgeable and gave great recommendations and ideas too. We met with Emily multiple times to go over our wedding and she was always on top of everything. She helped make my wedding day stress free! Overall, we were so happy with our wedding and had the best day ever!!! We could not have done this without Glen Oaks and Emily!Sent on 11/16/2020

Glen Oaks was a dream!
Glen Oaks was a dream wedding venue! We had our ceremony on the croquet lawn, cocktail hour on the beautiful veranda, and the reception inside. Such a unique and gorgeous venue - I loved having different areas and rooms for our guests to go. It truly felt like we had the entire building. The staff is also amazing! Emily - the event coordinator was absolutely fantastic to work with. We emailed back and fourth the entire process and met 3+ times and I have to say she is the most organized/professional human being I’ve ever met. I don’t know how she does it! She is truly the BEST at what she does and she made our day exactly what we wanted with the perfect timeline. She handled our wedding so well even with the difficulties of Covid - we couldn’t have done it without her. I can’t thank her and Glen Oaks enough!Sent on 09/07/2020

Dream Wedding Venue
Glen Oaks is truly the PERFECT venue! I seriously can't say enough great things about Glen Oaks! The indoor and outdoor spaces are immaculate, the food is delicious, and the staff is incredible! We had our ceremony out on the beautiful croquet lawn, the dinner inside, and cocktail hour and dance floor outside on the veranda. Planning a wedding during COVID was stressful, but Emily was excellent to work with during the whole process. We met with her many times to discuss the change of plans each time they arose. I appreciated how knowledgeable and organized she was so I could stress less. Another perk of having your wedding at Glen Oaks is they have their own kitchen, and the food is to die for. All of our guests were raving about how delicious the food was! Our wedding turned out so perfectly, and we have Emily and the other staff at Glen Oaks to thank for that!Sent on 10/02/2020
Glen Oaks Country Club's reply:Thanks Taylor for the kinds words! We love the pictures you shared with us too :) Congrats again!

I have done makeup for many weddings here. The room for the bridal party to get ready in is great! Plenty of room for everyone. I usually see my brides take advantage of a continental breakfast or lunch that is served there while they are getting ready. Truely a much better option than a hotel suite, with a huge gorgeous window for getting ready photos and bridal portraits. Highly recommended!
Glen Oaks is one of my absolute favorite places to shoot! The building and property are gorgeous, the staff is professional, efficient, friendly, and well organized. I'm always excited when I get to photograph or create a wedding film for a Glen Oaks couple!
Glenn Oaks is one of our favorite places to work! Mallory is outstanding and creates an excellent venue for your wedding or other events!!
