Suggestions for Chicago AHR Locations

Recommended Posts

I am getting married in Nuevo Vallarta Mexico on Decemeber 28,2011.  I am trying to decide what we can do in terms of a affordable AHR.  I don't want to spend a ton on a AHR since so many of our close family members were supposed to come but now are backing out based on finances. 


Does anyone have any suggestions for location to hold AHR.  I live on the northside but most of my family lives on the southside so even NW Indiana works.


Is waiting until May seem too long so we can have outside?

Hey Erica, I just saw this now that I'm trying to nail down an AHR venue. Did you ever find one that worked for you?


We're in Downers Grove, and some of the more affordable inside venues we've found (avoiding the city itself) are Cantigy in Wheaton, Brookfield Zoo (still waiting on 2012 pricing from them) and Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge in Hinsdale. I'm going to do some visits in the next week or two I think...


We're getting married in April 2012 and want the AHR in the same month, so we have to find an inside venue - you know Chicago in April, absolutely no way to predict!


Good luck if you're still looking! If you picked one, I'd love to hear about it!


Erica :-)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
