Chicago Weddings: Metropolitan Style
Want your Chicago wedding to be an event to remember?
Getting married in the Windy City? Chicago weddings are known for high energy and high fashion. Try these tips for going glam in the big city.
- Get married in the evening. Take advantage of the wealth of upscale reception venues in Chicago by having a formal wedding in the evening. Everyone loves a black tie affair. Find a formal designer wedding gown and give your guests the chance to dress in gorgeous gowns and sleek suits.
- Hire a live band. Entertain your guests with live dance music during your reception. If you need recommendations, contact a Chicago wedding planner who can help you find the right band for your buck. Even with recommendations, be sure to listen in before you book.
- Have your makeup done by a professional. If you’re investing in a photographer, invest in great makeup. Your regular makeup will look washed out on camera. Instead of doing it yourself, book a Chicago makeup artist with plenty of bridal experience.
- Get together for brunch the morning after the wedding. Treat visiting family members, your close family and your attendants to champagne and a light brunch. This traditional, formal activity gives everyone a chance to reminisce about your wedding. Ask a close friend or family member to host or organize the brunch as a wedding gift.
