Best Wedding Venues In Kansas City

WOOHOO YOU SAID YES! Now, it’s time to plan the most epic celebration ever! The first step after getting engaged is to find the best venue for you! As a Kansas City Wedding Photographer, I’ve worked at hundreds of different venues in Kansas City, Topeka, Sedalia, and more.

Before you begin the search for your perfect Kansas City wedding venue, ask yourself a few questions:

  1. How many guests are we going to invite? Your guest list sets the tone for the entire event, so sit down with your significant other soon after getting engaged and put together a rough list. It doesn’t need to be exact, but always overestimate. You don’t want to book a venue fit for 100 and realize your guest count is closer to 200.
  2. What season do you want? A lot of venues are absolutely gorgeous in the summer, but look a bit dead in the winter. On the other hand, if you want to primarily use the indoor space, the outside might not matter as much!
  3. Do you want an outdoor ceremony? If you are planning on getting married outside, the outdoors will be way more important. Take note of the ceremony location and the location of the sun during your chosen ceremony time. You don’t want to choose a ceremony time that will blind your guests or your partner as you’re saying your vows.
  4. How much decorating do you want to do? This is completely personal preference. If you are wanting to make the entire wedding your own, starting with a blank slate venue would be most ideal. If you would prefer to do as little decorating as possible, book a venue that provides some decor for you or looks great without any additional touches.
