At the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Dakota Dunes – Event Center (located in the Sioux City area) we know wedding planning usually begins long before an engagement. We want to make every vision you’ve had for your wedding a reality, and we will do everything we can to make your experience enjoyable. It’s our goal to make sure your first step into the next chapter of your life is memorable in the best way and reflects your unique vision. We cater to weddings large and small with enough event space to host up to 450 guests, and the ability to partition the room into a more intimate space for smaller gatherings.

Our stunning event space features a modern look with neutral colors, which creates the perfect backdrop for any style of décor, from lavish to minimal. Although our event space is amazing, (really, we could talk about it all day) what steals the show is our caring staff. We love what we do. There is nothing more rewarding than the glow of a newly-married couple and the loving friends and family surrounding them. We strive to create a warm, attentive environment and our team works very hard to make sure that no detail is left unnoticed. We are eager to assist in any way, from start to finish; no request is too small!

When booking our event space, you are choosing a great location at an exceptional value. Here are just a few of the perks included in the room booking fee:

  • Stage & skirting for head table
  • Black, white, or ivory table linens
  • Gift table and guest book table
  • Colored napkins
  • Setup, teardown, and clean-up of the event space
  • Flatware, glassware, and fine china
  • Servers & bartenders
  • On-site event coordination
  • Save around 5% in taxes (when compared with venues in Sioux City, Iowa)
  • Complimentary King Suite for the wedding couple
  • Hotel group block with discounted rate for your wedding guests
  • Complimentary boardroom for gift opening the morning after your wedding (based upon availability/upon request)

    Prefect Location!

    We recently had our wedding reception here and it was simply amazing! Everything was handled so perfectly by the staff from the beginning to the end. Sam and Lauren did an incredible job, gave us great suggestions, and made us feel comfortable every step of the way! The event space itself is so impressive and the outdoor patio space was such a hit among our guests! We 10/10 recommend to this venue!

    MVP of wedding planning

    I’ll be the first to admit I was the most unorganized bride ever. Having to plan a wedding almost 900 miles away was a challenge to say the least. Thank god for Sam and her attention to detail and organizational skills! She was also so prompt in answering any questions we had and helped smooth out and streamline our timeline for the day. I don’t think anyone else has the skill to corral our scattered wedding party the way she did either. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, spacious, and clean and same goes for the entire hotel. We were also blown away by how attentive and kind the staff was. We highly recommend this place to any newly engaged couples in the area!

Cheers to the Future Mr. & Mrs.! I am ecstatic to be able to work with you to plan your big day! Watching a wedding reception unfold from start to finish after all the planning has transpired is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. I love creating unique, customized dream weddings for each and every couple so that you know that your day is unlike anyone else's. Every detail matters when you're planning the first day of your forever!
