As you may know by now, we like schmooze, meet people and visit local points of interest in order to experience many of the fun things to do in Springfield, MO., and now, we started hosting the WeDames monthly business mixer which occurs the first Wednesday of every month! And yes, you are invited!
WeDames has been around since June of 2016, and while we have had some fun private events for the people and businesses of Springfield, MO., we decided we wanted to branch out and meet other like-minded business people in our queen city. Hence, the WeDames Business Mixer was born!
Keep in mind we do host other soirees throughout the month. We generally try to hold either a schmooze event and a ladies-only wine dive event monthly. If you would like to know when these events are, check out our FaceBook page, MeetUp page, and/or our event page.
In short, each of these happenings are laid-back, fun and it is incredibly easy to meet new friends. We even thought up icebreakers for those who feel they are socially awkward (I actually created the icebreakers because I am the socially awkward one – it calms me down).

FAQs About The WeDames Business Mixer
Is there a cover charge?
Pfffttt…no. All you pay for is your own food and drinks, unless a business is sponsoring food of some sort from the venue.
About how many people show up on average?
Anywhere from 20 to 40 people show up at this professional gathering and looking mighty fine if I do say so myself!
What is the dress code?
The dress code is smart casual. No need to get out your gala gowns and tuxedos, but keep in mind booty shorts and low-cut blouses will be looked down on (literally). In other words, dress in a way which represents your industry well!
Can I join even if I don’t own a business?
While we do prefer business owners and entrepreneurs, we invite anyone who has a job or is looking for a career. You never know who you are going to meet at these events – there are high chances of meeting someone who compliments you professionally!
Is this a ladies-only event or can gents attend as well?
The business mixer is for all genders, and no, it is not industry specific. So, grab your business cards and come on over!
We will see you there Springfield, MO., with a drink in hand and a twinkle in our eye!
What WeDames Offers
WeDames is an organization which spotlights local businesses and presents them in front of Springfield’s most influential market segment, the people of Springfield, MO.! In short, we set up fun events (such as ladies night out, debutantes and daiquiris, and madams and mimosas) whereby a local business, looking to market their products and services to women, sponsors one of these said events and enjoys building rapport with our female patrons.
Keep in mind, we don’t ONLY host events for women: every month we host a Business Mixer, a Ladies-Only Wine night and a general Schmooze event. WeDudes are invited to the Business Mixers, which are the first Wednesday of every month, and our general schmooze events! You can find deets on all of these events here and you can RSVP for them as well!
Our audience/readers are a mix of men and women – from college students to entrepreneurs, stay-at-home parents, professionals and more, ranging from 21 years old to 60 years old! Each event is fun, entertaining, and leaves everyone wanting to know when the next one is. We have a packed house each time!

If you are a business looking to host/sponsor an event or series of events, keep in mind you can do everything from sponsor a gift at an event, to sponsoring the whole event itself- it all depends on you and what you would like to achieve out of it!
