The Woman’s Club of Evanston has hosted hundreds of weddings and events over the years. Please visit Yelp, Wedding Wire and The Knot to read reviews from the brides and families that have experienced our beautiful spaces and personal service. Here are a few samples.
“Classically beautiful, elegant, spacious, historic space. There is not one corner of this venue that is not a beautiful backdrop for photos. We used the upstairs ballroom for both the ceremony and reception and the downstairs space for cocktail hour. It was the perfect amount of space for our 130-person wedding, including a dance floor with a live band. The rental rates are reasonable, especially considering that dining tables, chairs, and dishes are included. They also have many other miscellaneous items you can borrow, such as easels, votive candles, a music stand, etc. They allow you to purchase your own alcohol for the event, which can save you a ton of money by allowing you to return any unopened bottles. For Jewish weddings, they do allow for kosher catering. Elizabeth, their event coordinator, was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She answered our questions promptly and offered useful suggestions.” Ronit L. 2016 via The Knot
“Our party was about 120 persons & we had an evening reception (7:30-11:00) of hors d’oeuvres, drinks and dancing. We only used the first floor which was plenty of space for guests to converse easily and mingle. The layout was great because it provided congenial space for sitters, schmoozers and dancers! …A good time was had by all and we highly recommend the Woman’s Club.” M. B. 2015 via Yelp
“What a fantastic venue! We both fell in love with the place as soon as we saw it and couldn’t have had a better ceremony or reception….” Sarah S. 2014 via Yelp
“All I can say is the ballroom upstairs is breathtaking. I had my ceremony and reception upstairs. The main level was where the cocktail hour took place when the caterers set up for the reception. Amazing place to have a wedding!…” Vivian B. 2012 via Yelp
“…We chose the upstairs ballroom and it accommodated everyone comfortably, and the sunroom was perfect for our cake, sweets and coffee (yes, we needed a separate room for these things – we like dessert in this marriage). The bar was conveniently inside the ballroom…” Beth R. 2012 via Yelp
“…Our wedding reception using the whole club was perfect. We loved being the only event going on at the Club. The privacy was so nice. The downstairs for cocktails and moving upstairs for dinner later was magical. The management of the WCOE is so professional, responsive, and helpful in all areas….” Kate, 2014 via Wedding Wire
“…We highly recommend looking at the Woman’s Club as it’s a gorgeous venue that provides enough of the basics (tables, chairs, etc.) while still allowing you to customize the space and make it your own….” Jodi 2014 via Wedding Wire
