August 16, 2020 | Weddings

As you plan your wedding, one thing to consider is where you will be getting ready for your big day.  It’s probably not top on your list with all the other details of planning a wedding, but it is one of the most important choices you will make.

The day of your wedding is when all the months of planning come together.  It’s full of excitement but can be a bit stressful.  This is when reserving a private, full house rental at the Wicker Park Inn makes all the difference. Here are 5 reasons to choose the Wicker Park Inn for your wedding accommodations.


 1.  Location

The Wicker Park Inn is just minutes away from many popular wedding venues in the West Loop, Logan Square and even Downtown Chicago.  This is so important when traveling to your venue, especially on a busy Saturday afternoon.  It takes minutes from the Wicker Park Inn.  Plus, we’re located on a quiet-tree lined street in the heart of Wicker Park, just a block away from all the action.  And we provide parking for all overnight guests.

2.  Photogenic

Our elegant design and beautiful accents leave most photographers drooling.  Plus, our historic property with perfectly landscaped front patio is the perfect backdrop for group shots.  And if you want to add authentic city backgrounds, nothing is better than the plentiful Chicago street art found throughout the Wicker Park neighborhood.

3.  Space

Each of our spacious guest rooms has a private, en-suite bathroom, luxurious bed, desk with high speed WiFi,  and comfortable seating area.  We’ve supplied all the amenities that you can think of, including a 2-car garage. And the heart of the home is our gorgeous, open-concept kitchen, perfect for a rehearsal dinner, cocktail reception or even wedding ceremony!

4.  Light

Photographers and hair & makeup artists need natural light to produce their best work.  We have designated areas for hair & makeup so you can look your best.  We also have rooms with lots of natural light for the perfect getting ready photos.  An added bonus is all the space so hair & makeup can set up their proper stations and photographers have room for wider angles and group shots.

5.  Hospitality

Many hotels can boast that they provide a high-level of service, but at the Wicker Park Inn, you are the PRIMARY guest. Our team caters only to you and your group.  This includes food preferences, vendor coordination, and other special requests. This is your day!  Our team is here to make it as wonderful and stress-free as possible.

So as you plan your wedding, make sure to consider where you will be getting ready and where your guests will be staying.  You have a lot of choices in Chicago.  Choosing the Wicker Park Inn private, full house rental will be the icing on the cake for your perfect wedding weekend!
