Pros and Cons of Weddings in Chicago

The “Windy City” offers plenty of advantages for brides and grooms looking for their dream wedding venue; however, there are a few drawbacks to keep in mind.

Advantages

  • Diverse choice of wedding venues
    The diverse choice of wedding venues in Chicago is a big “plus” to holding your special day in the city. Whether you’re after an intimate celebration in a newly renovated loft or want to book an artsy penthouse with 360-degree views, you can find wedding venues with the space and aesthetic you’re seeking.

  • Experienced vendors
    With such a huge choice of experienced wedding vendors based in Chicago, you’ll have lots of options when it comes to finding your “dream team.” From florists and photographers to DJs and stylists, you can select those with the exact skills you’re looking for.

  • Affordable property prices
    Compared to some of the United States’ other major cities, Chicago is relatively affordable. This means that wedding venues in Chicago don’t cost as much to hire, helping to keep your wedding budget in check.

  • Easy transportation options
    If you’re planning a wedding with lots of out-of-town guests, getting to Chicago is a breeze. They can fly into O’Hare or Midway International airports, catch a train to Chicago Union Station, or drive along one of the highways that connect Chicago to major cities across the United States.

  • It’s a cultural and sporting hub
    If you’re planning a destination wedding in Chicago, you (and your guests) can use the opportunity to experience the city’s legendary museums and sporting culture. See the Chicago Cubs or White Sox in action, visit the Art Institute of Chicago, and get hands-on at the interactive Museum of Science and Industry.

Disadvantages

  • Crime scene
    Chicago has long been associated with some of the biggest names in crime, such as Al Capone and Baby Face Nelson. Unfortunately, the city still has a relatively high crime rate today.

  • Unfavorable weather
    Chicago hasn’t been nicknamed the “Windy City” for no reason, and the wind can be relentless at times. Summers are often hot and humid, while the winters can get incredibly cold with significant snowfall.

  • Traffic is notorious
    It’s not uncommon for the city’s streets to come to a standstill during rush hour, so you may need to buffer in an extra hour or so to get to and from your wedding venue in Chicago.

  • Parking is difficult
    Parking is also challenging, with it sometimes nearly impossible to find a space in paid parking areas. Most locals use taxis or ride-share services to get around this problem, and it might be a good idea to recommend these to your guests also.

  • High taxes
    In Chicago, groceries and restaurant bills are taxed, which is something to keep in mind when selecting your wedding caterer.

Famous Locations in Chicago

  • Chicago’s Murals
    For a pop of color, many brides and grooms opt to have their wedding photos taken in front of Chicago’s vibrant murals that appear throughout the city’s eclectic neighborhoods.

  • Chicago’s Lakefront
    If you’re after a waterfront backdrop, there are plenty of places along the shores of Lake Michigan for wedding photoshoots, including Promontory Point, Olive Park, and The Adler Planetarium.

  • The Loop
    Home to many of Chicago’s architectural icons, this downtown area is an ideal setting for wedding portraits if you want the city’s striking buildings as your backdrop.

  • Lincoln Park
    After a more natural setting? Head to beautiful Lincoln Park to celebrate your new union amidst its landscaped gardens and lakefront trails.
