Fabulous venue - highly recommend!
We are thrilled that our daughter and son in law chose the Glen Club as the venue for both their wedding ceremony and reception. From the first visit Michael and the team there made it an easy and happy experience. The facility itself is beautiful and convenient, with a gorgeous wedding garden, a terrace for cocktail hour with a fantastic view of a lake and the golf course, a stunning ballroom, and a 20 room hotel on the top floor with a beautiful bridal suite. It also is just a footpath walk away from the Glen Town Center with restaurants, shops, and a movie theater, and less than a mile from a train station to downtown Chicago.Sent on 09/24/2019
The food was amazing! We had so many guest compliments. The staff was wonderful and when it started to rain about an hour before the ceremony they quickly moved the reception tables out of the way behind a screened wall and set up in the ballroom indoors. The rain stopped, and they quickly dried high top tables and managed to still have the cocktail hour outdoors - and it was beautiful.
We are very pleased to highly recommend this wonderful venue!

Perfect wedding at the Perfect venue
After initially wanting a wedding in the city, I am SO glad we decided on the gorgeous Glen Club for our nuptials on 9/1/19! Our day was absolutely perfect and I can’t say enough nice things about Mike Rosengarden who made the last month and day of details all happen so smoothly! We initially worked with Michael Koenig who was great and gave us a lot of ideas, but when he left less than two months before the wedding I was a bit nervous. Needless to say, Mike was a seasoned pro who’s been there 18 years, and his clam demeanor and can-do attitude put me at ease immediately.Sent on 10/07/2019
The venue itself is a beautiful fairly neutral space that allows you to really make it your own in any color palette. I had a jewel toned theme and it all looked fabulous when the decor was set up and I didn’t feel mine looked like every other wedding which felt nice!
The food—our guests have not stopped raving about the food over a month later. The appetizers were all delicious, and since we’d eaten there before we’d requested having the grill chips on the cocktail tables for a little extra and everyone loved that touch too. Our entrees were the filet and salmon duet which was outstanding, and the spinach and feta streusel for vegetarians was also delicious. My husband is a veggie as we’re about 20 of our guests and they all raved about it! Our tomato soup and glen salad was also so yummy. The cake baker they included in Couture Cupcake Cafe were fabulous and easy to work with too, and we loved our cake! Because we love food, we also had the Homer’s sundae bar, then warm pretzels and cheese and cookies for late night snacks and our guests were head over heels in love with all the food options.
Little things too like allowing us to drop off our 8 foot massive boxwood place card board, ceremony programs, and other day-of essentials 3-4 days in advance, and allowing our dog to be our flower girl in the garden outside were just the nicest little touches that made us feel so lucky to have chosen the Glen Club. Those small gestures go such a long way.
Our day was 150% perfect, and if we had to do it all over again we’d absolutely have it at the Glen Club again! Thank you Mike R and everyone else there who helped make our day such a success!

June 2019 Wedding
My husband and I got married at The Glen Club on June 15 and it was an incredible experience from day one. Michael is seriously such an amazing, helpful person to work with. He is so knowledgable and cares so much about making you (as the bride or groom) happy. His tour of the wedding spaces really helped us envision what our day could be like. Anytime I had a question or a concern throughout the planning process, he promptly emailed or called me back and helped me figure everything out. On my wedding day, I was very worried about the weather, and he treated me as if I was a long time friend as he was trying to keep me from worrying and making sure that I was doing okay. Seriously so amazing! He definitely takes on the role of wedding planner closer to the day of. You go over every single detail with him, drop off all your decorations, and him and his staff take care of the rest!Sent on 07/02/2019
It is really convenient that the second floor of the building is a hotel as we were all (bridal party included) able to get ready at the location. I loved this idea because I didn't want anyone to have to travel to and from multiple locations all day long. My bridesmaids and I got ready in one room with our hair and makeup team and my husband and his groomsmen got ready in another, giving everyone a fun experience in the morning and early afternoon.
The outdoor garden/terrace was exactly what my husband and I were looking for in terms of our ceremony. It is well kept and private. The outdoor cocktail area is stunning with the view overlooking the grounds and it is a great way for your guests to enjoy nice weather if you have it. The ballroom is what really blew us away and is absolutely stunning when it is all setup for your wedding. We really liked the private balcony for the DJ, so that our guests wouldn't be bothering him all night and the speakers weren't right next to any tables.
The food and waitstaff throughout our evening were absolutely amazing. We were given the ability to setup our sweet and late night food tables outside of the ballroom which gave our guests more space and a new change of scenery throughout the evening. There were a few hiccups before and during dinner but the staff definitely helped us solve any issues and move on with our evening.
We couldn't be happier with how our day turned out and would recommend The Glen Club to any future couples.
The Glen Club's reply:Thank you both so much! It was truly my pleasure to work with you all and your families! Wishing you both the best!
It is always a pleasure to work with Michael and others at The Glen Club. They are always very friendly and accommodating, and we at Artquest are happy to work with them on a pretty consistent basis setting up weddings large and small. It's always refreshing to have someone who understands the industry we are in, who has the experience that is necessary to successfully run larger events without any chaos, and who is interested in making everything run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Michael in particular fills that role really well.
I worked with Michael last night and he was amazing! Everything about The Glen was amazing!!! The food was great too! I can't wait to work there again! Definitely referring this place to my clients!
We absolutely love working here. It is beautiful and the staff is always great to work with. We can't say enough good things about this place.
