What do I need to do to confirm my wedding date?
Once you have selected your wedding date, we will send you an agreement to confirm the date, timing and space.
Is there a deposit due?
A 25% deposit of the agreed-upon food and beverage minimum. A payment sliding scale will be discussed in your agreement.
I am interested in hosting my wedding ceremony & reception at the hotel?
The non-traditional ceremony has been a trend for many years now and we have hosted several wedding ceremonies in our multiple venues. Our catering team will walk you thru your options for space in regards to whether you want a ceremony room and a dinner room or if you are interested in utilizing the same room for both. Please note that if your intent is to utilize the same room for ceremony and dinner, the hotel will require your guests to enjoy a 60-minute cocktail reception while we transform the room from theatre seating to dinner seating. This service will also be charged an additional $5.00 per person at the guaranteed number.
Does Loews Kansas City Hotel offer special group rates or discounted guest rooms for my guests?
Yes, please inquire with your Catering Manager.
When is the menu tasting?
Menu tastings may be scheduled from 2-3 months from your event date.
Will someone be there to assist during my wedding day?
Your designated Catering Manager will be available on the day of your wedding, but since weddings are very detailed and intricate, a Day of Wedding Coordinator can be a great investment.
What are the parking options?
Valet and self-parking are available to wedding guests for an additional fee. Parking is subject to availability.
Are there any specific vendors I need to use?
No, we are happy to work with any vendors you choose to make your event a success. Our only request is that we are provided contact information for each vendor so we can connect with them in advance of their set-up of your event and we receive their Certificate of Insurance that lists the hotel as an additional insured. Should you require an outside production company, there will be additional charges assessed through our in-house AV company.
Can I order multiple entrée choices for my guests?
Yes, you can select up to three entrée courses to accommodate your guests’ requests. However, a final guarantee of each entrée must be supplied to the hotel at a minimum of 72 business hours prior to your event, and organizers of the event must provide each guest with a place card signifying their entrée choice. Additional charges will be assessed for this service.
Is there a reason the wedding packages only include 2 courses?
We have packaged our wedding dinner offerings with two courses (starter and entrée) as most weddings want a wedding cake to be the final course. The hotel’s pastry kitchen does not specialize in wedding cakes, so we allow each wedding to contract with an outside baker to provide their wedding cake.
Can I bring in my own food or beverage items?
The hotel offers all culinary and bar service options that any event would want, because of this we do not allow events to provide their own food or beverage offerings. The only exception to this is the wedding cake, which may be brought in by an outside vendor.
Are there any additional charges I should be aware of?
All of the hotel’s banquet charges (food, beverage, miscellaneous charges, and event room rental) are subject to a 24% taxable service charge plus applicable taxes. Currently, the tax rate in Kansas City is 12.85%.
What is a food & beverage minimum?
A food & beverage minimum is a contractual agreement that the dollar amount requested is spent in the event space between food (dinner, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, etc.) and beverages (alcoholic and/or non-alcoholic) purchases. This minimum spend is prior to the hotel’s 24% service charge & applicable taxes.
Not all of my guests drink, can I order the bar package for a portion of my guests?
No. Unfortunately, we don’t know your guests and whether or not they will enjoy our bar service. Because of this, if you order a bar package then all of your guests over 21 will be charged the per person package price. Perhaps it would be a better idea to offer a bar charged on consumption if your guest count dictates that and your catering manager will be happy to offer prices per drink.
I want an outside event, but I am worried about the weather?
The only thing consistent about the weather in the Midwest is that it’s always changing. We understand your concern and have our own concerns about weather opportunities. Because of this, we always hold an inclement weather backup space inside the hotel in case your event needs to be relocated. The final decision on location will be made 24 hours prior to your event.
