Destination Wedding Guide: Branson!By Misty Gray / June 6, 2023 / Branson, MO, Traveling / 0 Comments
Welcome to our series on destination weddings. This month, we wind up our ‘local flavor’ theme with a post very near and dear to us: Springfield, MO!
This time out in our blog series on destination weddings, we’re venturing into the heartland of America and exploring Springfield, Missouri, affectionately known as the “Queen City of the Ozarks.”
Springfield (which just happens to be our hometown) offers the charm of a small town with the amenities and culture of a sophisticated city. It’s a hidden gem that might just be the unique and memorable wedding destination you’ve been searching for.
If you’re looking for a wedding destination that’ll offer a bit of ‘small town spirit,’ but with the resources and options of a much larger metropolis (with a bit of hometown charm and midwest rural magic drizzled on top for good measure), then Springfield Missouri might be the perfect wedding spot.
There are plenty of outdoor wedding options to explore, and there are also some elegant and classy indoor spaces as well.
Plus, Springfield can be an awesome (and affordable) place to visit and make memories with your wedding party.
But this guide will also help you if you live in Springfield. If you were hoping to stay ‘closer to home’ for your wedding and need a guide to forward to some friends and family who may be flying in from out of town—well, just send them this blog post!
Let’s dive into it.
