Southmoreland on the Plaza is a unique venue for an intimate Kansas City wedding and/or reception. Our facility can accommodate 24 people with events held either indoors in our enclosed verandah and dining room or outdoors on the Southmoreland grounds. We pride ourselves on working with our customers to create a personalized event that will be pleasing to them and their guests. An innkeeper will happily assist you with final arrangements, including seating, setting, food and beverage choices, and all event details.
Facility tours and planning meetings require appointments which are taken seven days a week between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., subject to availability. Evening appointments may be accommodated in certain circumstances.
Facility rental for wedding and/or reception events is $150 per hour (two hour minimum), including any guest required set-up time. In order to reserve the facility, a non-refundable fee of 50% of the facility rental (by cash or check) is required.
If a group reserves all of the guest rooms (the 12 rooms in the main Inn as well as the Carriage House suite), they may choose to have their event any time during their stay. This includes evening events. Groups reserving only a portion of the guest rooms or no guest rooms may hold their event anytime between 11:30 AM and 4:00 PM. The Inn is open 7 days a week.
FOOD AND BEVERAGE:
All menus are customized to serve the client’s needs. A variety of alternatives can be provided, including hors d’oeuvres, lunch and dinner menus, sit down preparations, buffets, dessert tables, or beverages only. All food and beverage is to be provided by Southmoreland on the Plaza. Outside catering and provisions are prohibited. There are two exceptions: Wedding cakes and alcoholic beverages. Both require service fees.
All arrangements must be confirmed with a credit card. If the client prefers not to provide a credit card, full payment in the form of cash or check must be made in advance. Final charges are due and payable (via cash or check) upon receipt of services. Any damages to the property or its contents will be assessed and charged to the reserving guest.
Start your honeymoon off as a guest in one of our 12 guestrooms or Carriage House suite and let us compliment your night’s stay with one of our special packages, a dozen roses, a basket of Kansas City treats, or a chilled bottle of sparkling cider.
