The 4th Annual West Loop Wedding Walk returns on Sunday, February 5th, 2023 from 12pm-5pm. The West Loop Wedding Walk was created to give couples a chance to see their wedding dreams come to life. A portion of the ticket proceeds benefits Wish Upon a Dress and Wish Upon a Wedding, a Chicago-based nonprofit that grants weddings and vow renewals to couples facing serious illness or life-altering health circumstances. Tickets for the 4th Annual West Loop Wedding Walk can be purchased here.
Couples will spend the afternoon visiting all the unique & amazing venues in the West Loop while enjoying staged venues with food, drinks, and goodies all while meeting some of Chicago’s best wedding vendors. Transportation will be provided between locations for all attendees. The first 150 attendees will receive a swag bag. Couples who are struggling on deciding where to start in the planning process will get expert direction and advice while they tour each space.
Check-in and shuttles will begin promptly at 12 pm. Guests can arrive at any location they wish, tour the venue, meet vendors, and gather inspiration. When they are ready to head to the next location, trolleys and transportation will be stationed to take them to the next venue. No need to worry about parking in multiple locations or taking public transportation between venues. Guests can start wherever they wish and head to the next location all at their own leisure.
