Read what people are saying after having their event at the Dunes.

Mississippi Dunes is absolutely beautiful!! The grounds are well taken care of, the ceremony area is gorgeous and private, the patio is stunning and relaxing, and the reception is flexible and ideal for any guest size (also the bar is right in the room so guests can still be part of the action!) Chris has taken over the wedding coordinating at Mississippi Dunes and will be the best decision you make for wedding planning! He is honest and extremely helpful. I HIGHLY recommend. I have worked in the wedding industry for 4 years and have visited multiple venues- this one is a favorite!

We had the most unbelievable experience at Mississippi Dunes for our wedding a few weeks ago. They have gone through a few changes of the guard over the past year, but luckily Chris came on board as the head of events about a month before our wedding. Every concern we had up to that point due to all of the changes (which were plentiful) were completely washed away after sitting down with Chris and going through a robust checklist of everything we wanted. The day turned out to be everything we could have hoped for. Chris and his team were there for everything we needed throughout the night and made sure we could enjoy the day/night without worrying about all of the details. We had the same hopes as all of you about our wedding being an unforgettable night that we will cherish forever and Chris, as the new leader, and the Mississippi Dunes venue in all of its beauty made that hope come to life.

Let me start this review by saying that if it were not for the newest set of coordinators, Nate & Linda, this review would not be five stars, but because of them, it is! They went above and beyond what they had to in order to make sure my dream wedding went off without any issues and I can confidently say, IT WAS PERFECT thanks to them! With Nate & Linda in charge, I would recommend this venue to anyone! With the two of them, you are in excellent hands and your day will be just as perfect as ours was! Thank you so much Nate & Linda! You are such amazing people and I don’t know what we would have done without you! The Dunes is a better place because of you already!
It was a great day and a beautiful place to get married!
