I had my wedding here, and it was the absolute most amazing experience. From the venue to all of the wedding personnel involved, I was stunned. It was not only beautiful, but Jennifer, the coordinator, was the most accommodating wedding planner I had ever met. Jennifer, went... Read More above and beyond to ensure I had the wedding of my dreams. From day one she made me so comfortable, at ease, and worry-free about my special day. Jennifer made sure we had planned both an outdoor wedding as well as indoor back up plan in case of unfavorable weather. Even as the wedding day was fast approaching Jennifer made anything and everything, no matter how difficult or extravagant a change, possible. As far as the food, service, atmosphere along with the entertainment, I would give it all a 5-star rating. I was actually so impressed with this venue that I forwarded and recommended it to three of my friends that were soon to be married within the next year. Hands down the most impressive, elegant and wonderful venue in the northwest suburbs. Without Jennifer my big day would not have been possible.

Jennifer is amazing. Planning a wedding is overwhelming and she was there every step of the way. We didn't want a cookie cutter reception venue and we stumbled upon this golf course. We bothered her for a few tastings and many different add-ons to our special day. She was... Read More courteous and flexible to make the requests possible. We asked for a special red wine and she worked with their vendors to find it. We were able to bring in special Italian pastries (from local licensed bakeries) that helped make it a special day. Pictures were taken around the golf course and at the stunning gazebo. We couldn't have had better weather for our outdoor cocktail hour. This place is a hidden gem. Food is amazing! People are still talking about the food. Book them. You will not regret it.

Jennifer and her staff went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect. We were able to bring in our... Read More decorations the week of the wedding and the room was completely set up upon our arrival-not one thing out of place. Our ceremony started promptly at 5pm without any missteps from the staff. The outdoor space is absolutely beautiful with no need for additional flowers or decorations. Throughout our cocktail hour and reception, Jennifer and the banquet captain were outstanding. The food was served piping hot with generous portions. We had a split menu and each guest got served exactly what they ordered! At the end of the night we were told that we could come back the next day to pick up all of our things-that made the night so much easier and stress free. Overall our day was absolutely perfect, all thanks to Jennifer and her staff. If I could I would give Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club 10 Stars!!! From the pricing to Jennifer, the banquet captain, and their entire staff to the venue was the most perfect day!!!

My husband and I had our ceremony and reception here in October 2017. The venue is beautiful and there is an amazing outdoor ceremony space. Jennifer was very responsive and accommodating through our entire wedding planning process. Bridges of Poplar Creek is also very... Read More accommodating with dietary restrictions, which was very important for our wedding as we had many guests with food allergies. The food at our reception was delicious and many of our guests commented on how good the food was. The only reason I am not giving Bridges of Poplar Creek 5 stars is because the staff threw our cake topper away after they cut the cake. Fortunately, my maid of honor noticed that we did not have the cake topper and demanded that the staff dig through the garbage to find it. We did get it back, but I was upset that it happened in the first place. If you get married here, definitely assign someone to keep track of your cake topper, cake cutting set and toasting flutes! Otherwise, you might not get them back. I understand that mistakes happen, but the cake topper is typically a keepsake and the staff should have asked if we wanted it before making a decision on their own to throw it away. My husband and I had our cake topper custom designed and had no intention of throwing it away. Other than the cake topper incident, our wedding was great and we would still recommend Bridges of Poplar Creek!

We are so glad we chose Bridges of Poplar Creek for our wedding ceremony and reception and to have had Jennifer coordinate and supervise it! Jennifer responded timely to all of our questions and worked with our vendors. There was a 90% chance of rain on our wedding day, and... Read More Jennifer worked with us by the minute to keep us updated about the ceremony location. Fortunately, we were able to have our wedding ceremony outside, and the staff worked flawlessly to set it up. We were also able to take the golf carts around to get pictures on the gorgeous grounds. Bridges of Poplar Creek took a lot of the stress out of wedding planning by providing an amazing cake vendor (included in the price), setting up our decorations, and providing all of the minor things we didn't think about. The food was also amazing; our guests are still complimenting it after almost 2 weeks. We couldn't have chosen a better venue!

I attended a wedding here this past weekend, and I had a horrible experience. At first, I was optimistic because the environment was beautiful. Unfortunately, the food and service were poor. For example, the serving portions were very small and the vegetables were under cooked.... Read More I was the only vegan at the table, and I had to ask for my plate several minutes after everyone else was served. The staff seemed to have forgotten about me. Also, the waitress was abrupt when asking me whether my child wanted the kids meal or not. All I saw was the waitress's back after my daughter told me she wanted the kids meal. Soon after toasting the bride and groom, the servers came to take away the champagne glasses before we were finished drinking. In fact, my cousin lifted up her glass for a toast and the waitress grabbed the glass out of her hand. My cousin told her " I am not done with my drink." and the waitress responded " Well, you are now!" in a mean tone. Then, after dessert, all the bottles of wine, even full bottles, were spirited away from the tables. Also, the waitress tried to confiscate some gluten free prepackaged cupcakes I brought in for my sisters. I guess you need to guard any food or drink with your life for fear that it will be taken away from you. In short, I do not recommend this place.

My wife and I had our wedding at Bridges of Poplar Creek in June of 2016 and we both agree it was the best day of our lives. This was in no small part due to the support staff at Bridges of Poplar Creek and the beautiful venue they support. Jennifer and Brian were courteous... Read More and professional from the first moment we met them. My wife and I had a great feeling about the venue and staff right away, and Jennifer in particular was amazing to work with. She was attentive and interested in making sure our special day was truly amazing. The planning process was very smooth, the staff was very organized and thorough. Every call, meeting, and rehearsal showed how professional the staff at Bridges is. On the day of the wedding, Jennifer and Brian bent over backwards to ensure my wife and I had the perfect day. Jennifer in particular was attentive to our needs and after all was said and done, we feel she played a huge role in the success of our day. The rest of the staff at Bridges played a huge role, from the kitchen, wait, and bar staff. When my wife and I will think back on our wedding day, we will not only remember the ceremony and reception, but those who helped us in making the day a huge success. Bridges of Poplar Creek made sure every need was met and it felt like our big day was also their big day too. We are truly appreciative of Jennifer and Brian, along with the rest of the staff, and they deserve more than the 5 stars I am able to give them for this rating.

I attended a wedding at Bridges of Poplar Creek on Saturday October 1st. The venue was beautiful. The food, not only wonderful but was hot when served. Many weddings/events that you attend you witness picked over plates by the guests, not here. But what stood out more than... Read More the venue and the food was the staff. Upon arriving for the reception cocktail hour, my husband and I experienced a slight confusion when the table our place card had us assigned to, was full. I spoke to a young lady and asked for assistance. In short order, the wedding planner and venue representative discovered that the place card simply had the wrong table number on it and helped us find the correct table. Sometime later, when dinner was being served, that young lady from earlier passed by me and said that she was so happy to see that I had found my table. And upon seeing the smiles and laughter of the entire table, also commented on what a great table it was. She wished me a wonderful evening and was off to finish what she was doing. I was thoroughly impressed that this young lady, with everything going on during a reception, not only remembered our very brief interaction from earlier, but that she personally followed up with me. Customer service is often what sets apart a good venue from one that is lacking. My experience at Bridges of Poplar Creek tells me that you can rest assured that you and your guests will experience impeccable customer service and have a wonderful event!
