Q Can we get married and have our reception both in the same place?

Absolutely. We have many options including holding your ceremony inside or even on the 12th Street Bridge adjacent to the Rumely. The Rumely event space has a beautiful, secluded and serene Bridal suite as well as a grooms chamber too. Some couples choose to get ready at Rumely, then go to the wedding site, and return to the venue for the reception

Q What's included in my rental fee?

TONS! The Rumely offers use of the entire interior space but includes an elevator attendant, parking lot attendants and security as well. We also provide tables and chairs up to capacity. You have up to 2 hours of consultation time with the Rumely event staff prior to your event to discuss details of your wedding and use of the space.

Q What's the situation with guest parking?

The Rumely has space for over 200 cars very close and secure. The West bottoms has the lowest crime rate in Kansas City!

Q Can I hire an outside caterer?

We have several preferred caterers and vendors. These are vendors we have done business with and trust they will make our brides happy! We believe that every bride deserves to have their special day and if that means an outside vendor we will gladly accommodate. We do charge a $250 administrative fee per outside vendor.


Rumely Tractor Review

5/ 5

My husband and I recently had our wedding reception at the beautiful Rumely Tractor building, and it was everything we hoped for and so much more. Upon beginning our search for Kansas City reception venues last year, we found several nice options, but none compared to the elegantly rustic, shabby chic look of Rumely Tractor, which is exactly what we were looking for (my style all the way…). Beautiful columns, ornate golden chandeliers, beautiful distressed brick walls, hardwood floors and bars, and endless other antique-rustic combinations of decor everywhere. Our pictures were gorgeous! We got so many compliments from our guest…some even wrote reviews of their own initiative after the event – it was THAT impressive! There are so many other great things to say about the look and feel of the Rumely Tractor venue, but what really meant the world to us was how unbelievably helpful the staff were in the planning and coordination of our event. They truly went above and beyond both their responsibilities and our expectations. Their communication with us was open and consistent, and they always answered our many questions with speed and precise detail. But more than that, they BENT OVER BACKWARDS to help us out with problems around wedding time – some even self-inflicted by my husband and I. Regardless, they demonstrated such a care and compassion for our wedding experience that we never expected to see, and couldn’t reasonably expect anything more from anyone! We owe our beautiful pictures, our amazing reception, and quite literally the success of our wedding day to the staff at Rumely Tractor. We will sincerely never forget their kindness, professionalism, and care. – Michael & Amy
