Big City Bride

We are the Chicago wedding planner with more than 20 years of planning Chicago’s most beautiful weddings and the care of a family business. Our company is based out of our charming Lincoln Park office, where we work one-on-one with you to create the Chicago wedding you’ll adore, while a full team of planners assists behind the scenes.

Our unique approach features a team of full-time wedding planners and employees of Big City Bride. We keep office hours that will accommodate most any schedule. We do not limit time or communication with our clients. We welcome an open-line of communication so we can help when you need us most.

Of all our accolades, we are most proud of the hundreds of happy couples and their families who say that hiring Big City Bride was the best wedding planning decision they made. Our goal is to ensure you’ll say the same.

love notes

"I will never have enough words to describe the incredible experience I had working with Arin Busch at Big City Bride! I can promise you that each and every glaringly positive review of Arin and the entire BCB team is 100% true."

Libby & Grady

"Best decision that I made was to choose Big City Events and Jena to be our guide to the best party ever. Impeccable taste, an eye on the budget and an absolute delight to work with. Couldn't be happier!"

Janine & Edward

I am not a Chicago native, so the idea of navigating Chicago’s robust selection of vendors, locations, and styles was overwhelming. I was soon put at ease as it was evident this team has impressive relationships with vendors and truly knows the best of the best. Relationships and industry knowledge: CHECK. But the final piece of the entire experience that must be noted is the person Claire (and many others at BCB) is. ENERGY, POSITIVITY, LISTENING... I could go on.
