Glen Oaks has been great to work with. My Fiance' and I have been talking to them about using their venue for our wedding. They have been quick to respond and have answered any questions that we have. I am excited to see the beautiful venue in person due to the fact that we don't live in Iowa yet! Great place, beautiful grounds, and easy to talk to!Sent on 01/14/2019

The Very Best
Glen Oaks Country Club is hands down the best place to have your wedding! Emily, the event coordinator, is so easy to work with. I am not sure how many emails Emily and I sent back and forth… but she never got sick of our communication and was so responsive. She made me feel so confident going into our wedding day knowing that everything would be just as we wanted it to be. The staff at Glen Oaks was very friendly and all of the guests had raving reviews. Glen Oaks is beyond beautiful. If you are contemplating this venue, look no further. Our wedding was absolutely perfect.Sent on 09/30/2019
Glen Oaks Country Club's reply:Aubrey, thank you for sharing such kind words! I truly didn't mind the communication, I always say there is no such thing as over-communication! It was great working with you and Taylor :)

Perfect November Wedding!
We got married in November 2018 and the day was an absolute dream! Emily, who just recently started, was INCREDIBLE! She was attentive, responded to my many questions leading up to the day, met with my mom as I am located in Chicago, and was key to the day running smooth! She helped coordinate and make sure everyone was where they needed to be. The club is beautifully maintained, the food was spectacular, and they know what to expect with weddings which makes planning a breeze. We were very happy with our wedding at Glen Oaks and couldn’t have imagined it anywhere else! The golf course makes for beautiful photos and backdrops. We would definitely recommend Glen Oaks to anyone getting married in the Des Moines area!Sent on 11/23/2018
Glen Oaks Country Club's reply:Thank you for the sweet words Cassie! It was a pleasure working with you, Patrick and your Mom to make sure that your day went PERFECTLY :) I look forward to you coming back and visiting. I saw your parents at Thanksgiving brunch at the club!

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!!
