BIG CITY BRIDE | FAVORITE CHICAGO WEDDING PLANNER

We are an established and professional wedding planning firm operating with the warmth and care of a family business. We're based out of our charming Lincoln Park office (Sheffield + Webster) where we work one-on-one with you to create a wedding you’ll adore.

This is not our side-hustle. This is our full-time job and our labor of love. We keep office hours that will accommodate most any schedule. We do not limit the time or communication with our clients. We welcome an open-line of communication so we can help when you need us most.

Of all our accolades, we are most proud of the hundreds of happy couples and their families who say that hiring Big City Bride was the best wedding decision they made. We hope you’ll say the same.

    Chrissy Magliano and BCB are the Best!

    Chrissy Magliano is just about my favorite human being on this earth! I could write an entire dissertation about how wonderful Chrissy, Christine Cronin, and everyone at Big City Bride are, and it still wouldn’t do any of them justice. We started working with Chrissy in 2018, with an intended wedding date of Fall 2020. As you can imagine, things didn’t quite go as originally planned. Chrissy guided us through the entire wedding planning process – and then re-planning process as we had to shift the wedding weekend to a year later in 2021 – with more grace, patience, and kindness than we could have ever imagined or asked for. Chrissy held our hands through every tough decision along the way, set us up with vendors that exceeded our wildest expectations, and helped us navigate all the added complications caused by the pandemic. Our entire wedding weekend went like clockwork, with every last detail perfectly handled and directed by Chrissy and company. If a single thing went wrong, we had no idea! We truly could not be more grateful to her and everyone else at Big City Bride. It felt like we got to work with a dear friend for our wedding planning, and we already miss having our regular calls with Chrissy! If you’re looking for a wedding planner, do not hesitate to work with Big City Bride. They are truly too amazing for words!

    Arin and Her Team "Made It Happen"

    Before COVID we had a "BIG CITY " Wedding planned and having received rave reviews about Arin at Big City Brides. We knew she was the one we wanted on our team. During COVID we had to pivot to an outdoor Suburban wedding and ARIN more than "Delivered". She just kept impressing us with her creativity, organization, and contacts. Day of, Everything went seamlessly and she was there the next day even helping to make the Brunch a success. She was incredible !!! Thank you Big City Brides for being "The BEST" Bridal consultants in and outside The CITY.
