About Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden

Let the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden be your destination for an upcoming event! As a progressive new cultural institution, the Botanical Garden provides a seasonally inviting backdrop for celebrations, receptions, and business meetings. In 2013, our 34-year old building received a facelift, transforming the visitor experience as we worked to implement Phase 1 of our capital campaign. The newly renovated spaces—including the expansive DuPont Room and two smaller spaces in the North Gallery—are perfect for guests to enjoy the tropics during Iowa’s weather extremes. Whether attending a business meeting or a formal celebration, guests can wander the gardens during breaks, enjoying the serenity of a lush tropical landscape. Iowa’s first living wall makes an impression as your guests enter the newly revitalized lobby, which includes a new retail space called The Garden Shop. From your initial visit through the day of the event, your needs will be catered to by our skilled team of event coordinating professionals. For rates, details or to book the facility, please contact Hatidza Sivac or Laurie Haeder, Events and Venue Coordinators at 515.323.6290. We look forward to working with you.

    Absolutely Stunning!

    This is the perfect place to have a wedding! We had our ceremony in the conservatory and our reception in the combined DuPont East and West rooms. I remember getting ready to walk down the aisle, and I could not believe how beautiful it was. Our guests could also not stop talking about how stunning the venue was. I would recommend this venue to everyone!

    Everything was fabulous! We had a morning ceremony (at a church) with a brunch reception and they were so accommodating! They let us in early to set up since they hadn't been booked the night before so we didn't have to stress in the morning. Jen was a dream to work with and made everything as simple as possible for us. It was lovely and I'd definitely recommend having your reception here!

    We rented the outdoor water garden space (where we had the ceremony) and Trellis restaurant (where we had the reception) for a small group of around 30 people. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. The staff were very easy to work with and were very accommodating. The setting was beyond beautiful and the food was amazing and was a huge crowd pleaser. Everyone who worked there went out of their way to make us feel special and to help us create the perfect day. Michelle and Jen from the Botanical Garden and Jake from Trellis are the best!!!

    I've photographed several weddings at the Des Moines Botanical Garden and every event has been perfectly planned with fantastic venue help throughout the day. The attention to detail and expertise of the staff makes ceremonies and receptions an enjoyable time for the wedding party. As a registered photographer with Des Moines Botanical Garden, I admire and respect how the Botanical Center manages their relationships with professional photographers. And as a member of the Des Moines Botanical Garden, I'm thrilled to have such an amazing venue in our city! Looking forward to my next wedding at Des Moines Botanical Garden this spring!
