Pros and Cons of Wedding After Parties in Chicago

Whether you want to stay at the reception venue or venture out into the city, Chicago offers a lot of potential for making memories that will last a lifetime. However, there are some considerations to take into account when planning this part of your event. Here’s a look at the pros and cons of wedding after-parties in Chicago.


  • The Windy City has a plethora of unique venues for hosting after parties ranging from high-end clubs and rooftop bars to ballrooms and historic buildings.

  • Finding just the right type of entertainment for your guests can be difficult but with so many options for live music, DJs, and dance performances in Chicago, it’s easy to customize your experience.

  • With some of the best restaurants in the world located in Chicago, there is no shortage of delicious cuisine options available that can cater to any taste or budget.


  • After-parties can be expensive due to rental fees, caterers, and other associated costs but with careful planning, it is possible to stay within budget while still having an amazing celebration.

  • Depending on where you choose to have your after-party, transportation can become an issue as many venues may be difficult for guests who don’t have cars or access to public transportation.

  • If you plan on hosting an after-party late into the night then keep in mind that some guests may not stay since they have work or family commitments early the next morning which could put a damper on things if too many people leave early!

Tips on How to Organize Wedding After Parties in Chicago

A wedding afterparty is an important extension of the main event and should be planned with just as much care. If you’re hosting a wedding afterparty in Chicago, here are a few tips and tricks to ensure your celebration goes off without a hitch.

  • Choose Your Venue Carefully: When selecting a venue for your wedding afterparty, it’s important to consider both the size of your party and any special requests you may have. The city of Chicago offers a wide range of options, ranging from clubs and bars to private estates or even outdoor spaces.

  • Make Sure You Have Adequate Parking: Finding parking in the city can be tricky, so it’s important to make sure that you have secured adequate parking in advance. If possible, try to arrange for valet services or have designated drivers at the ready if needed.

  • Time Your Toast: Hosting an afterparty doesn't necessarily mean you need to relive every moment from the wedding ceremony - but it's always nice for family members or close friends of the couple to make heartfelt speeches about them as part of their celebration!

  • Provide Enough Food (and Drinks!): Depending on when your afterparty starts, you may need to provide some food (if not already provided by your venue). If anyone is drinking alcohol there should also be plenty of non-alcoholic drinks available too. Keep your guests hydrated throughout the night.

  • Keep Things Fresh: While there are plenty of tried-and-true activities like karaoke which are guaranteed hits at wedding parties, don’t forget that it's perfectly ok (and recommended!) to switch things up every now and again.
