The space was nice! The chairs and tables that were included were such a bonus. It was advertised to us that we were allowed 1 hour entry before our baby shower started which allowed us to decorate and set up. Unfortunately, we were only granted 30 minutes to setup and decorate. The venue had a representative who ran late and didn’t get there until 30 mins later to open the doors. This + a pregnant wife and a few of our family members anxiously waiting to get inside to prep before our guests showed up made for a hectic start to our party. Other than that everything went smoothly and our guests had a great time!

Nice size place for a party. Chairs, tables, microwave, fridge, toilet paper, garbage bags was all included. Everything was clean.! Guess was just upset that the music couldn’t go louder but understand about it being to loud for the neighbors. Will definitely have a party there again. Was very cheap compared to other places. Oh and they give you an hour before to decorate and a hour after to clean up so it doesn’t take up your time you are scheduled for.

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.


  • 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.


  • 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
