1. The Penthouse Hyde Park

First, on our list of Favorite Wedding Venues in Chicago is The Penthouse Hyde Park. This amazing new venue space atop the Piccadilly Hotel is a gem to the Hyde Park area. It offers an unforgettable modern black and white floor that is carried out onto the outdoor balcony. The outdoor balcony can accommodate up to 200 guests and has a breathtaking view of the Chicago skyline. It also has a beautiful two-story suite for the bride to prepare for her special day.

2. Drake Hotel

An all-time favorite for couples getting married in Chicago is the Drake Hotel which has been around for more than 100 years. A true Chicago gem. Here you will find several astonishing ballrooms to choose from which is why we love this place so much. Each room offers a different view of the city which can include a view of the Magnificent Mile or Lake Michigan. Whichever room you choose, you are sure to have an unforgettable experience

3. Keith House

If you're looking for a more intimate space to host your wedding, then you would love the Keith House. This mansion built in the 1870s is so unique and that's why it's on the list of our Favorite Wedding Venues in Chicago. Not only does it offer so much charm with its parlor but it also houses the Prairie Avenue Art Gallery. Your guests will have a memorable experience while browsing some eclectic artwork and celebrating your new union at the same time.

4. River Roast Private Events

When you stop by City Hall to get your marriage license, be sure to check out River Roast Private Events, which is right next door, literally. A venue space that's perfect for couples looking for that Chicago-style ambiance. Exposed brick, sleek lighting, and a view of the infamous Chicago skyline are some of the features you'll get here.

5. Crystal Gardens

For the bride that's all about the greenery, we have to mention the Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier. We love this space because it allows you to get married while enjoying the greenery all year round. Palm trees, beautiful fountains, and a six-story glass atrium are some of the attributes this space has to offer. You can also get great views of the city and the pier. Also, we like the fact that they offer South Asian Wedding packages that include special vegetarian and non-vegetarian options for you and your guests.
