Hello my Chicago friends! I wanted to start a fun chat with all of us! I was wondering where are you getting married? Navy Pier? Ship? A beautiful spot in the suburbs? What from here are you incorporating into your wedding? Fannie May Chocolates? Sox or Cubs? Hawks? Garretts Popcorn?


I have lived here my whole life (24 years) but never been a city girl so I am not incorporating anything Chicago into my theme, but we are getting married at Chandlers in Schaumburg on there beautiful patio over looking the greens. And then partying it up at the Seville in Streamwood. We are having evrything hot pink and black with hits of Cinderella. I can't wait!


What are you doing?

    I've lived in the suburbs of Chicago my entire life, but since both my FH and myself have been haunters for over a decade (we work in haunted houses as a side gig/ passion), we are actually getting married IN the haunt we met at (Midnight Terror in Oak Lawn), right after haunt season! (I may pull my hair out by the time all is said and done. Lol!) Both the wedding and reception will be held there. Thankfully, the haunt has a good amount of space as it's in a warehouse and hosts laser tag and escape room parties during the off season. We are keeping things simple and going with black and white as our colors, with a masquerade feel during the actual ceremony (guests will be provided masks that will serve as their table placement cards, as well as their party favor).

    I’m getting married in buffalo grove, but from the south side of Chicago. My theme is a night in Paris.

    Hi! I was born and raised on the Southside of Chicago but we aren’t incorporating anything Chicago. We had a banquet hall here in Burbank but theycalled to say they closed down and we had to scramble 6 months before the wedding to get a new place! The reception will now be in Lemont, IL. Kind of bummed. A two minute walk to our church and fifteen minute drive to our banquet hall was a dream. Now it’s an hour drive to the hall. Still not happy about it but I’m grateful for even having a party.

    We don’t have a specific color scheme or theme but we are incorporating our Mexican and Guatemalan culture into aspects of the wedding. Mexican candy table ftw!!!

    Congrats to all getting married!

    Hi! I'm from the Chicago suburbs but I'll be getting married in Lake Delavan, WI. I won't be incorporating anything from Chicago though. Just a lot of flowers and lace ☺️ Hope you all have a wonderful wedding!

    I love that place! It was a contender for us as it fit our theme well but a bit pricey for us. It will be beautiful tho

    I stay by the midway area. My problem is I am looking for a 300 seated dinner reception. Also looking into catering my own from a restaurant we like and take our own beverages. We have an event decor in mind but looking for a place that will fit my invitees.

    I'll make sure to post after! The pictures are probably one of the parts I am looking forward to the most since we do plan to use some of the haunts scenes 😉😁
