Des Moines Scottish Rite Consistory

We heart this stately beauty that has been a fixture in Des Moines since 1927. Its towering columns, historical tapestries, and ornate ceilings make Scottish Rite Consistory the perfect spot for your grand entrance. 

If you’re looking for one location for all your needs, this venue can handle it. Many couples get married in the Consistory Auditorium and hold their reception in the Grand Banquet room. Both spaces impress with their high ceilings. And the building’s smaller rooms, some with original woodwork, make great spaces for getting ready or enjoying time with your bridal party. We also love the flexibility of bringing your own caterer or choosing from their approved vendors to get you going.

Reception Games

In an effort to entertain guests, couples are turning to the tried and true: games. From Jenga to lawn games at outdoor cocktail hours, games are being used as a way to break the ice between guests. This playful trend is a great way to get your friends and family mingling.
