I was married in August 2013 and this was where my husband and I had our reception. It was amazing. I had so many ideas in my head from Pinterest, from my parents, from magazines, that I didn't think that anything could match up to what I had thought up. We visited many potential spaces but nothing was grabbing our eye. As soon as we entered the Arboretum Club's space and met their staff we knew we had found our dream space. There are so many great things I could go on and on but I'll focus on what was important to us.
First and foremost: Price. We were on a budget and with a Chicago area wedding in mind that doesn't leave many options. We sat down with the coordinator and after finding ways to cut some costs (skipping on the lobster and having chicken) (choosing less expensive appetizers) (choosing chair covers instead of fancy chairs)...etc.. we found ourselves with a budget we could make happen.
Next, We had a guest count of 250 and had been having trouble finding a space that could fit that for a reasonable price. The Arboretum Club totally worked!
Next, we wanted good food. This place has AMAZING food! Seriously, guests went up to my mom and complimented her on the food after just the first soup course! They made their food from scratch and it's amazing.
Next, we didn't want to deal with a million vendors. This place almost includes it all... food, decor, open bar, space (indoor and outdoor), brides room, nice restrooms, even the wedding cake is included in the cost. The only vendors we brought in were flowers, photo booth, photography/video, and a sound system.
We also wanted it to look classy. This place was so great! So many compliments on how beautiful the wedding was and I felt so great about it all! The pictures on the course and around the trees were beautiful. Also, they only have one space here for weddings so yours is the ONLY wedding going on that night. Which is incredible.
The staff were amazing. Every time we called or emailed they knew exactly who we were and worked with our specific needs and catered to our wants. It was truly the best wedding experience I could have asked for.
Also, remember, the open bar (including beer, wine, and hard alcohol) comes INCLUDED in the per plate price. I can't stress how great that was.
Anyway, if you're looking for a beautiful Chicago area wedding for a great price, you better book this place fast! You won't regret it and you'll have people talking and raving about it for years!

I was very pleased with everything from start to finish with The Arboretum Club. Everytime I stressed about something going wrong, Chris or Allie were at my rescue! On the day of my wedding, Allie did not want me to worry about anything, and I really didnt. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful, and everything was all set up when I got there. There is an extra 200 dollar charge for them to set up place cards, card box, centerpieces ect... DO IT! Best 200 dollars ever spent. Thanks ladies for making my day great!
My biggest plus about this place, is I got EVERYTHING for a very fair deal. They really don't try to get every dime out of you like a lot of other places!

We did an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception for about 200 guests. We chose to do it on a Friday and received a 20% discount. The staff was easy to work with and very friendly. They met every request that was made. I had a lot of friends and family compliment the food. They said they had been to a lot of weddings that the food was mediocre but the food here is great! I highly recommend doing a wedding with The Arboretum Club! They did a fabulous job!
