Finding the perfect wedding venue is one of the first steps toward pulling off a flawless wedding ceremony and reception in the Windy City.
When choosing the venue to host your big day, keep a few key factors in mind. When you tour your wedding venue, either online or in-person, keep your budget, guest-list, and style in mind. Before you meet with a representative from the Chicago event venue—whether it be a venue coordinator, sales managers, caterers, or owners—it’s important to come prepared. Establishing your wedding budget ahead of time will help you and your future spouse determine how much you can spend on your Chicago wedding venue in addition to all the beautiful details you’re hoping to include. With your wedding budget in mind, weigh the per-guest cost breakdown on venue offerings along with essential details like potential additional catering costs. Think of your entire guest list as the capacity your venue needs to comfortably house. The ideal wedding venue for your event will fit your budget, provide ample space for your guest tables, and suit the style of your Chicagoland wedding.
There are seemingly endless wedding venue options in the greater Chicago area and designing your dream wedding takes time. Couples who feel paralyzed by wedding planning should consider working with a Chicago wedding planner to help determine a strategy around wedding planning. Wedding planners can suggest wedding styles that compliment your love story and aid in the wedding venue contract process.
