We’re smack in the middle of wedding season right now, so if you’re currently engaged you might be looking for a venue for next summer. Nebraska has a lot to offer for future brides and grooms, whether you’re hoping for an elegant urban event or a rustic country setting.
River Inn & The Spirit Of Brownville, Brownville
This floating venue in southeastern Nebraska offers a peaceful view of the Missouri River whether you choose to stay moored or take a spin in the water for your special day.
Haymarket Square, Lincoln
Haymarket Square offers three different rooms that can accommodate your wedding and reception, all in Lincoln's historic Haymarket District.
Divots Conference Center, Norfolk
Perfect for the wedding ceremony and reception, Divots features an exceptional countryside backdrop.
Founders One Nine, Omaha
This chic urban venue in Omaha's historic Old Market has ample room for all of your friends and family, plus an unforgettable setting that you can customize to your own specific tastes.
Scottsbluff Barn Anew, Scottsbluff
This ceremony-only venue is perfect for an intimate wedding with up to 150 guests. The lush green setting is great for your memorable wedding day photo shoots.
Joslyn Castle, Omaha
This magical venue lets you feel like royalty on your special day. With space for indoor and outdoor ceremonies and receptions, the Joslyn is a spectacular way to start a new chapter in your life.
Valley Event Center, Gering
This flexible event space is just the right place for your wedding. There is plenty of room (so you don't have to stress about your growing guest list) and you can hire your own caterer so you aren't locked into a specific vendor.
Stuhr Museum, Grand Island
Most of us know the Stuhr Museum for its robust collection of Nebraska history memorabilia, but the museum's large grounds also make for a spectacular setting for your ceremony.
Henry Doorly Zoo, Omaha
Ready to take a walk on the wild side? The Omaha Zoo offers a wide variety of totally unique spaces for your special day.
Niobrara State Park, Niobrara
Any of Nebraska's state parks make a gorgeous backdrop for a wedding, but I have particular love for Niobrara after attending the wedding of some good friends there. The park has cabins for the wedding party to stay in as well as a stunning outdoor ceremony area and a charming, rustic indoor reception hall.
Lied Lodge, Nebraska City
One word sums up Lied Lodge's facilities: spectacular. The lush outdoors and rustic (but equally elegant) interior spaces are ideal for just about any wedding. Add in special little touches like personalized tree seedling wedding favors and Lied Lodge is elevated to "dream venue" status.
Superior Estates Winery, Superior
This idyllic setting is the perfect place for growing wine grapes - and the perfect place for marrying your sweetheart. Chancellor Hall seats 250 people and features beautiful wood beam cathedral ceilings and huge windows to let the area's natural beauty shine in.
