Spring is here and romance is in the air! Couples are planning their weddings and high school students have their sights set on prom. If you’re getting married this spring, you’ll have many friends and family members converging in Kansas City for a fun-filled weekend. Now is the time to take care of details like planning daily activities and coordinating wedding transportation around the Greater Kansas City Area. And if you’re planning activities for prom night, you’ll certainly want to celebrate in style and impress your date.
It all starts with a meal. Whether you’re hosting a large rehearsal dinner or planning a date night, you’ll first want to sit down at one of Kansas City’s finest restaurants. All of these establishments can accommodate large groups as well as couples who want to enjoy an intimate dinner.
Power & Light District: There are many great restaurants to choose from. During wedding and prom season, it’s wise to make advance reservations even for a date or small wedding party.
801 Chophouse: You can’t go wrong with 801’s gourmet dishes and inviting atmosphere. Choose from the Power & Light District or Leawood, KS location.
Bristol Seafood Grill: Located in both downtown Kansas City and Leawood, the Bristol serves up delectable fresh seafood dishes in a romantic environment.
The Capital Grille: This Country Club Plaza establishment is known for its excellent food and ambience. The staff is happy to work with you to create the perfect reception dinner or date.
J.Gilbert’s Wood-Fired Steaks and Seafood: Located in Overland Park, J. Gilberts is famous for its prime cuts of meat and excellent seafood.
Lidia’s Restaurant: Enjoy authentic Italian fare, attentive service, and a fabulous wine list. Rent out Lidia’s Loft or the patio for a large gathering.
Odds are, your wedding guests will be in town for a couple of days before and after your wedding. Why not entertain them with some local attractions while they’re here? Kansas City has something for everybody.
Art Museums: Visit The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art for an inexpensive group activity that’s highly engaging. Both museums showcase an array of new exhibits throughout the year, in addition to permanent collections.
Harley-Davidson: The groomsmen will appreciate a trip to the Harley-Davidson plant, where they can enjoy a factory tour and see how America’s iconic motorcycles are made.
Boulevard Brewing Company: Enjoy a comprehensive tour of the facility and a few samples of premium beer!
Shopping: Take the bridal party on a day trip to the Country Club Plaza, Zona Rosa, or the Leawood Towne Center. All locations feature upscale shops, day spas, and cozy restaurants.
Live Music: During the summer, you can enjoy great live music at any of Kansas City’s outdoor venues. Plan ahead to see a show at the Power & Light District, Knuckleheads Saloon, or Crossroads KC at Grinders.
History Museums: The American Jazz Museum and the National World War I Museum are known for their in-depth, engaging exhibits. You don’t have to be a history buff to be entertained.
Whether you’re wrangling a hundred wedding guests or escorting a date around town, you’ll need to plan ahead to coordinate transportation. Keep it simple by booking Kansas City wedding limousine service. A chauffeur-driven sedan is an ideal way for event guests in KC to travel, allowing them to see the sights in comfort and arrive on time to every reservation and event. For small family groups (4-6 passengers), a luxury SUV is a spacious and comfortable vehicle with ample luggage space.
Booking a limousine service for out of town guests also ensures that nobody gets stranded at the airport. A Kansas City wedding limousine service lets you relax and enjoy your weekend without worrying about traffic, parking, or navigating the city. And for the big day (or prom night), nothing tops a chauffeur-driven limousine! For larger crowds, especially big wedding parties, nothing makes group transportation in Kansas City easier than a chauffeur-driven limo coach (20-22 passenger) or a mini coach (14-35 passenger). Larger vehicles are becoming very popular for weddings, but each is also a perfect transportation choice for larger groups on prom night!
