Looking for wedding venues in Iowa? Take your pick! From venues set in whimsical gardens to spacious ballrooms at hotels, you’re spoiled for choice. Waterfront venues are a particularly popular option where you can exchange vows along the riverfront or overlooking one of the state’s many lakes. You’ll also find countless country club venues, which are great for indoor and outdoor space—perfect for all your wedding photos! Given Iowa’s great expanse and rural countryside, barn and farm venues promise an enchanting setting for your ceremony, too. Regardless of what kind of Iowa wedding venues are most near and dear to your heart, use our wedding budget tracker to ensure your choice fits within your price range. When you know you’re on track, it’s easier to make decisions.

All the In’s and Out’s

Before you get your heart set on a certain venue, make sure you’re asking all the right questions. Firstly, you’ll want to ensure that the venue is licensed for wedding ceremonies. Once you know that, ask about how many people the venue can accommodate and if there is any outdoor space available. It’s also nice to know whether the venue is hosting other events on the day of your wedding and if they offer on-site catering and supplies. What is the down payment? And do they offer payment options? In case of any unforeseen circumstances, it’s always best to ask about their cancellation policies. When you feel like you have all the information you need to book the venue, it’s time to begin building your wedding website. This site lets all your guests know about the important details of your wedding, from registry information to hotel accommodations. Next, figure out what kind of services you need. DJs? Wedding planners? Florists? Allow us to help. Take advantage of our wedding vendor manager to help keep everything in order.
