About

On WeddingWire since 2014

SqWires is an all-inclusive wedding venue located in Saint Louis, Missouri. They are able to accommodate a range of events, from engagement parties and showers to ceremonies and receptions. Rehearsal dinners can also be held here. This restaurant is surrounded by charming Victorian-era homes and 30 acres of Lafayette Park.

Facilities and Capacity

SqWires is filled with character, thanks to the exposed brick, 18-foot ceilings, and period fixtures. There are also original wood floors and iron lights that couples and their guests can admire throughout the establishment. The restaurant's main annex can comfortably accommodate up to 150 guests. The front room provides space for up to 40 individuals and may be used either separately or in tandem with the annex. The industrial setting offers couples and their guests a stylish and airy environment to enjoy a ceremony. Plenty of light filters in through the windows and ceiling fans keep wedding-goers cool and comfortable. The space is illuminated by romantic bistro lights, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. A loft area provides a fantastic space for games or other bespoke setups. The front room is ideal for banquet tables and boasts large artistic works along the walls.

History

This establishment is the former home of Western Wire and is the product of a redesign that enhanced the 19th-century brick structure. The entire complex went through a renovation in 2001, resulting in the rebranding of the restaurant into what it is today. Bethany Budde had spearheaded this operation and continues to run the thriving business.

  • Woman-owned

Sqwire's exceeded our expectations!

The wedding coordinator at Sqwire's went above and beyond for us. She always made time for us and was easily accessible. I gave her pictures from Pinterest and she made it happen. Our wedding was perfect. The entire staff was wonderful. We're so grateful for Sqwire's making our wedding beautiful.

2024 Wedding Reception - 5 Stars all around

My now husband and I had our wedding reception at SqWires in May of 2024 following our ceremony at Lafayette Square Park! We truly cannot say enough good things about Stephanie, Hanna and the whole SqWires team. From the beginning of the process when we first toured SqWires, everything went extremely smooth with the help of Stephanie and Hanna. The coordination, suggestions, food, helpful tips, proposal planning and vendor correspondence were all 10/10! If you’re considering having your event, reception or wedding here, I can’t recommend it enough!

Best rehearsal dinner!

We hosted our rehearsal dinner at SqWires and couldn't be happier with our decision! Jill and the whole team were so responsive, organized, kind and accommodating. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food and drinks were SO delicious. We got tons of compliments and can't say enough how great the experience was the night before our wedding!

Landolfi Quartet played a wedding reception at Sqwires which was really a wonderful venue! It is spacious with a warm feeling. The buffet was exceptional. The area where the quartet played was comfortable and we could be heard and seen. Not that we have egos but when clients hire a string quartet that is usually important to them. We highly recommend this venue for weddings that want a warm, friendly feel with great food.
