Sioux City Information For Your Wedding Guests

For your out-of-town wedding guests, they undoubtedly will be excited to be visiting Sioux City. While your lovely wedding day will be the highlight of their visit to Sioux City, exploring a new place on other days will make it even more special.

You might like to send guests some info in advance of the wedding day with handy details to make their stay easier and more pleasurable. Here are some ideas.

Recommended Accommodation

Try to give your guests accommodation recommendations in three budget ranges, budget, mid-range and luxury, near the wedding venue so they are not driving or taxiing too far on the wedding day. They might not take your recommendations, but at least you know you've provided them with fantastic options. To get you started, here are four great properties in each budget range.

South Sioux City Marriott Riverfront offers luxurious rooms with a scenic view of the water. With an outdoor pool and steakhouse on-site, this gem on the banks of the Missouri River is one of the fanciest in town.

Candlewood Suites Sioux City - Southern Hills is a can't-go-wrong accommodation choice that is clean, modern and affordable. The pet-friendly hotel is great for groups if your friends and family want to stay together. Chocolate Mansion is another sweet stay in this price range. Every room in this boutique hotel has a unique design layered in history and charm. Book the whole mansion and 14 guests can have the place exclusively.

Loved ones looking for the most affordable rooms will be comfortable and cared for at Ramada by Wyndham Sioux City. It is close to all the shopping and nightlife and even has a swimming pool.

Best Dining

You can find many impressive restaurants, bars and cafes in the city. Here are some of my favorites for casual, delicious and affordable dining.

Get spicy at La Juanita with great Mexican food, including the best beef burritos, tasty tacos, and chimichangas in town.

Check out the Milwaukee Wiener House for classic hot dogs, homemade chili and cold beer.

Johnnie Mars Family Restaurant serves up comfort food, including American classics and Greek dishes like gyros and kebabs.

Your guests will probably want to eat at quick and easy places with lots of delicious and healthy options. They will be saving themselves for the feast at your wedding!

Where To Shop

From essentials to souvenirs, your wedding guests will likely squeeze in some shopping time. They will appreciate a quick guide on the best places to spend some bucks.

In the downtown Sioux City area, you can find major stores, brands, and plenty of specialty shops with plenty of fashion, food and homeware. There are also several malls for retail therapy, including Lakeport Commons, the Marketplace Mall and Southern Hills Mall.

Interesting Places To Visit

If you have children, the Long Lines Family Rec Center is great for sporting activities, including indoor rock climbing. If you are kids-free, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino might be more your vibe.

There are art galleries, parks, museums, and walking trails to explore in Sioux City, so it would be easy for your guests to spend several days in town to make the most out of your wedding in Sioux City.

Important Numbers

The police non-emergency number for Sioux City is 712-279-6960.

Your wedding guests will appreciate the thoughtful gesture if you send them information about Sioux City with the wedding invitation or in the lead-up to the big day. It will save them a lot of time researching and also help keep your guests together for socializing. You can make it as simple or detailed as you like and have the peace of mind that your loved ones are safe and happy.
