Northside Wedding Guide & Expo

The north side of Chicago has a lot going for it — lakefront views, diverse communities, and an artistic vibe. If you’re planning a wedding, you can check-off unique venues, full-service salons, and kitschy shops for decorations and favors to the list!

The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce is hosting the Northside Wedding Expo on Sunday, April 15th from noon – 5 pm (VIP starts at 11 am with a fashion show). Both vendors and couples will have the opportunity to meet and greet local, small business owners at three Edgewater venues: the newly re-opened Colvin House, Firehouse Chicago, and The Lytle House. Transportation between venues is provided by Chicago Trolley and Double Decker Co.

The Northside Wedding Guide is a collaboration between six neighborhoods, highlighting unique vendors who provide goods and services for weddings. Whether you’re looking for an extravagant venue and decadent menu or something more home-grown in a lush lakeside park, this guide has you covered.
