Testimonials

Our wedding reception at Iowa Events Center was perfect! We heard so many great comments about the projected photos in the Grand Concourse, the food, service and the lighting in the ballroom! Our guests were very impressed by this venue. Our wedding manager has been so great to work with over the past year and has always responded quickly and is very knowledgeable. She was able to serve all of our requests and made us feel like our event was the most important. The Iowa Events Center exceeded all of our expectations!

Amazing service from everyone all around! I don’t know what we would have done without our wedding manager helping us out! She was a wedding saver! I got comments all night long about how beautiful the venue was, how great the food was, and how friendly the staff were. There is no other venue in Des Moines as beautiful as this one. The lights up in the grand ballrooms can be any color you want, any color! We had ours set to Tiffany blue to match our wedding colors, and then also had it randomly cycle throughout some of our fun dances and intros. My bride’s family was originally worried about the food, because they wanted something more traditional for an Asian wedding. They were all very pleased with what the catering staff came up with. Our menu was Chicken Parma Rosa, Pork Pad See Ew, and Veg. Pad Thai. I received very positive comments on all three dishes, and also the egg rolls we ordered as a late night snack. Finally, the staff is amazing! Our wedding manager worked her tail off making sure that we got everything we wanted all the way leading up to and during our day. The rest of the staff were awesome as well! All throughout the day staff kept coming up and complimenting us on everything! They were all so nice and helpful! We had brought a lot of our own decorations, and they helped pack everything up for us in no time! It was amazing! Long story short if you want a wedding that people will remember, this place will make it happen. A+

Just wanted to let you know what a great job the wedding manager did for us at our daughter’s wedding! We were very happy with the entire staff! We live four hours from Des Moines and with this being our first wedding and only daughter to be married we were pretty nervous of how the distance between us and the reception and the communication would go but it went so smoothly. The wedding manager was so organized and very prompt about returning calls; things were flawless. Also the staff that worked to serve food and clean up were very professional. We were extremely happy with how beautifully everything went. I would highly recommend Iowa Events Center to anyone.
