    My wife and I just had our wedding at The Woman's Club, and we could not have been happier with our decision. The venue is absolutely beautiful, perfectly maintained with historic charm & character. We were able to host both our ceremony and reception in the upstairs ballroom, and the downstairs was used for our cocktail hour while the ballroom was changed over. This was very convenient and worked wonderfully for us and our guests. Gretchen, the venue manager, was so incredibly kind, helpful, and was truly a pleasure working with her. She also connected us with a caterer from their approved list, J&L Catering, who knew the room very well and did an amazing job on all fronts. We would recommend The Woman's Club to anyone looking to plan a wedding or throw an event. It is a very special place.

    We loved hosting our wedding at the Woman's Club of Evanston! The staff was extremely responsive to our questions, planning process, and visits to the venue. Many of our vendors also told us how helpful the staff was and how much they enjoyed the space. We had 115 people at our wedding and it felt like plenty of space, and we loved using both floors to break up cocktail hour and our reception. Probably our favorite thing about the venue is how well-decorated it is on its own, which let us pare back our decoration budget by a huge amount. We also worked with one of the venue's preferred caterers (J&L Catering), who was extremely familiar with the space and the staff, and gave us so many helpful tips and tricks for making the most of our event. The venue is also very public transit accessible and close to two hotels, as well as a number of bars and restaurants, making it convenient for our local and out of town guests.

    We had a great experience working with the Woman's Club of Evanston for our November 2022 wedding. Gretchen from the get-go was a helpful resource to helping our vision come alive! She communicated clearly the expectations of the club from the very beginning which made the planning process more smooth, since we all were on the same page. She worked well with our caterer as well, which was off of the venues preferred list. We have only good things to say about this venue. Our wedding day was a dream and there was nothing we would have changed about it. I would highly recommend booking your wedding at this venue.
