About Us

At the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Dakota Dunes – Event Center we know wedding planning usually begins long before an engagement. We want to make every vision you’ve had for your wedding a reality, and we will do everything we can to make your experience enjoyable. It’s our goal to make sure your first step into the next chapter of your life is memorable in the best way and reflects your unique vision. We cater to weddings large and small with enough event space to host up to 450 guests, and the ability to partition the room into a more intimate space for smaller gatherings.

Our stunning event space features a modern look with neutral colors, which creates the perfect backdrop for any style of décor, from lavish to minimal. Although our event space is amazing, (really, we could talk about it all day) what steals the show is our caring staff. We love what we do. There is nothing more rewarding than the glow of a newly-married couple and the loving friends and family surrounding them. We strive to create a warm, attentive environment and our team works very hard to make sure that no detail is left unnoticed. We are eager to assist in any way, from start to finish; no request is too small!

  • Lauren, Tammi and their team were amazing to work with as we planned our wedding! We visited a number of places, but after seeing the venue and meeting with Lauren, our decision was easy to make! The venue is gorgeous, elegant and spacious! The team was always available, easy to work with and accommodating! For us, the pricing was comparable plus we never felt like they were nickel and diming us on items. Being attached to a hotel was very important to us, as we had many guests traveling in, the service our guests received was top notch! We have heard nothing but great things from our guests regarding their stay! I will highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Dakota Dunes Event Center, Lauren and her team to anyone looking for a venue!
