Enjoying The Wedding You Planned


As Chicago wedding planners, we spend months (and sometimes years) discussing the many details of a wedding day. We assist couples with choosing the perfect Chicago wedding venue, date, vendors, details and surprises to make their wedding unique!

Lighting, bar design, hanging décor, linens, chairs, table décor, specialty glassware, napkins, cake, menu cards and escort cards are all set within a well thought out floor plan design. We plan the transportation, photos, music and every bite of food. We schedule the production of the day, from first moments with the photographer to the grand exit after the ceremony, and everything in between.

Often, this also includes planning introductions, blessings, toasts, special dances and hip ideas your guests have never seen before! For example, one of our favorite ways to add style and comfort to a wedding is to add in lounge furniture.

Whether you choose traditional or totally modern designs, the wedding should be in a comfortable environment that represents you as a couple and your personal style. Big City Bride loves to incorporate lounge vignettes whenever possible so you and your guests can kick up your dancing feet for a few minutes.

Adding rugs, small floral arrangements and pillows can make your wedding lounge area a perfect accessory to your event. No matter the style or theme of your wedding, furniture groupings will give your guests an area to drink cocktails, relax or visit with old friends in a stylish setting.

Here are some exceptional wedding lounges planned by Big City Bride!
