This time of year, it is hard to distinguish the difference between the ringing of silver bells and wedding bells. A time for family and thoughts of building and creating new ones are ever-present during the concluding months of the year. The holidays can be the perfect time of year to get engaged or even married. Not only is family all gathered in one place, the beautiful holiday lights and colors make the perfect photo op. Since the weather of the Midwest is unpredictable more often than not, having an indoor winter wedding gives you the security knowing weather will not impact the big day. Ball Conference Center can make your indoor winter wonderland visions come true!

Holiday Proposal:

Once you have decided that a holiday proposal is the route you want to take, next is to find the right time, the right place, and right ring. Figure out your partners style aesthetic and work with a jeweler to determine which ring will be perfect for them, and in budget for you. You’ve got the ring. You’ve got the person you want to spend the rest of your days with. What’s missing? The proposal! There are strategies you can take that will ensure you select the perfect location. The beautiful lights at the Plaza make a beautiful backdrop. There are also several KC restaurants that are elegant and well equipped to set the stage for the big moment.  If your partner is close with their family, consider a celebration or gathering that the entire family would be at anyway. Also consider that a special or memorable place for you both, with no friends and family around would be ideal. Any location you choose should represent the two of you as a couple.

Selecting a Winter-Proof Venue:

When the time comes to select a venue that keeps the frostbite out and the warm feelings in, look no further than Ball Conference Center for your special day! The Ballroom is the perfect space to bring life to your winter dreams. The addition of twinkle lights, candles, even artificial snow can take an indoor space and transform it. A seasonal mix of wintry florals are essential for bringing the outside in. A fun menu of food and drink associated with winter is also a nice touch. Serving drinks such as hot chocolate (for kids and adults!) and cider are sure to keep guests in the wintry mood throughout the evening. Cocktail hour snacks such as tomato soup with tiny grilled cheese dippers are also a festive way to incorporate winter. The staff at Ball Conference Center are willing and able to help you achieve the wintery oasis you never knew was possible.
