Goin’ To Chanhassen, And We’re Gonna Get Married


Chanhassen Dinner Theatres doubles as the perfect venue to tie the knot.

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is known as a fun entertainment destination for all theater lovers and food lovers, but public relations director Kris Howland is here to share why Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is perfect for all lovers. If you’re looking for the place to say “I do” to your lover, look no further than Chanhassen.

For 50 years, thousands of couples have been tying the knot in Chanhassen Dinner Theatre’s theater, ballroom, and other venue spaces. Over the years, the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre’s venues and amenities have been upgraded and updated to provide happy couples with everything they could need on their special day while keeping that timeless “Chan” flair.

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres has two main interior reception space options: the Club Theatre and the Ballroom and Dance Loft. The Club Theatre is a multi-level space for up to 175 guests complete with a stage, built-in dance floor, and tiered seating for dinner. The Ballroom and Dance Loft is a more traditional reception space that can serve up to 250 guests. It has dramatic colors and up-lighting as well as a hardwood dance floor.

“Chanhassen Dinner Theatres can support your dreams of an outdoor wedding at nearby Bluff Creek Golf Course; it’s quiet and secluded with a panoramic view of the Minnesota River Valley. From there, it’s an easy car ride to Chanhassen Dinner Theatres for the reception,” Howland says.

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres has a rich history for being a special occasion destination and as part of that, Howland says they’re privileged to shine the spotlight on couples celebrating their wedding day. The Club Theatre space was a busy theatre for more than two decades until it was converted into a lovely space for weddings & events, she adds.

Soon-to-be-married couples can remove a great deal of pre-planning stress with Chanhassen Dinner Theatre’s All-Inclusive Wedding Package. Howland says they pride themselves on being affordable without sacrificing quality. The package includes plated entrées, tiered cake or cupcakes by Buttercream Bakery in Minnetonka, a DJ, tables and linens, Chiavari chairs, room rental, dedicated staff, and much more.

Out of the thousands of couples that have shared their special day with Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, Howland says many have been in the GLBT community.

“One of the most delightful and memorable qualities about Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is that it feels like home. CDT is welcoming and full of acceptance and warmth,” Howland says. “CDT offers a comfortable yet beautiful place for our wedding couples to celebrate their most exciting milestone with their family and friends.”

Because all weddings are different, Howland says Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is an ideal wedding location because it offers a fresh space that can be decorated and designed to fit the needs of any couple, no matter what their style is.

“Our wedding spaces offer a ‘blank canvas’ effect. They’re easily customizable so you feel as though your wedding is perfectly designed for you as a couple,” Howland says. “Every love story is unique, and we believe weddings should reflect that!”

Whether you’re looking for a place for your own special day or you have a friend who seems to be drowning in wedding planning, the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres is a venue you’ll want to give a second look.
