Illinois wedding receptionsAnother good reason why they call Illinois "America's Heartland"?

You guessed it! Whether it's formal or casual, indoor or outdoor, Illinois has everything you need to make your wedding one to remember.

From Chicago to Rockford to Peoria, and indeed throughout the Illinois, you'll find some of America's top choices in traditional hotel and resort reception venues and banquet halls.

However, also keep in mind unusual Illinois reception sites like historic manors, romantic inns, museums, parks and gardens, yachts and boat cruises, waterside resorts and Illinois lakefront or beach wedding locations.

Wherever you choose to have your Illinois reception, also keep in mind the criteria for choosing the best location at the best price. This includes the number of guests and your budget, of course, but also consider the fine print within the contract you will ultimately have to sign to book your reception.

Will your guests have full run of the reception facility or be limited to one banquet room? How long will your wedding reception last? Is there a fee if your party lasts longer than expected? Is there adequate parking on site or nearby? What is the deposit and when is the remainder due? It's also smart to look for package deals that can help defray the costs of a Illinois wedding and reception, leaving enough cash left over to enjoy the perfect honeymoon!
