Chicago has many options for accommodations! Most hotels are located downtown, about a 35 minute train ride or 20 minute cab ride from the venue. Below are a few suggestions, but we recommend checking discount sites like or for the best deal!

Airbnb is another great option that is widely available in most neighborhoods around the city.

Activities in Chicago:

If you find yourself with some extra time the weekend of the wedding, there are a ton of fun things to do around Chicago! Visiting Lincoln Park Zoo is a fun and free activity, as is doing some sightseeing in the downtown area around Millennium Park and the Bean (Cloud Gate for out-of-towners).

There are tons of great restaurants to eat at. If you want some great Chicago style pizza, you can't go wrong with Lou Malnati's.

If you're looking for something a bit more stuctured, some friends of ours provide walking food tours of Chicago. Check out there website here.


What we want most for our wedding is to have all of our friends and family together to celebrate with us. More than anything, we consider your presence to be our present. If you are inclined to give a gift, below are links to some small registries. Contributions to our honeymoon are also greatly appreciated!
