Creativo Loft offers popular all-inclusive options for small weddings in Chicago. Our Casual Weddings and Standard Weddings are completely customized all-inclusive packages, except that you separately higher an outside caterer for cuisine and bar package. Casual Weddings have a shorter amount of time, so they can work for alternative cocktail party style receptions, or a seated banquet, and are popular for slightly smaller groups, from 30 to 62 people. Standard Weddings are a standard full day schedule, and are preferred by couples desiring a more formal wedding experience, including plenty of time for dancing, with typically 50 to 74 people.
Do you have a group of 36 people or fewer? Please see our Elopements and Tiny Weddings options too.
