The Woman’s Club of Evanston has hosted hundreds of weddings and events over the years. Please visit YelpWedding Wire and The Knot to read reviews from the clients and families that have experienced our beautiful spaces and personal service. Here are a few samples.

“Absolutely incredible–made for a PERFECT day. My husband and I are Northwestern alumni, and we knew we wanted to be back in the area for our wedding. My now husband had to find a venue alone because I wasn’t able to be in the area, and the Woman’s Club has been absolutely perfect in working with me virtually and helping my husband organize. They were always quick to respond by email, answered every question we had, and have been the kindest, most understanding people we have had the pleasure of working with.”  – Ann K 2021 via Wedding Wire

“Beautiful venue, great staff! The Woman’s Club of Evanston is a beautiful, classic wedding venue in the heart of downtown Evanston, Illinois. It’s also a great value because you have the entire building, newly redecorated during Covid. Staff is wonderful…efficient, professional and flexible. Our wedding guests were very impressed! Check it out. You won’t be sorry.” – Janet M 2021 via Wedding Wire

“I’m so happy we selected the clubhouse of The Woman’s Club of Evanston as our venue for our wedding and reception. Dana was wonderful to work with and was able to help guide us in the details of planning our big day. The space provided separate spaces for our cocktail hour, ceremony and reception, with a stage for our band, which is what attracted us in the first place. I love the history and the architectural beauty of the Clubhouse, which provides a beautiful backdrop to your wedding photos. And when my wife and I understood that our rental fees enable The Woman’s Club of Evanston to focus on charitable giving in the community, we ended up being very proud to have selected this as our venue.” -Michelle M. 2020 via The Knot

“The Woman’s Club was a beautiful venue and so easy to work with. The team recommended phenomenal vendors and helped make the day of our wedding go so smoothly. They were even very understanding and helpful when we had to make a last minute change to our ceremony. We are so happy we chose the Woman’s Club and so thankful for how they helped make wedding planning such a stress free process. Would highly recommend them.” – Cass I. 2020 via The Knot

“We are so delighted that we found the Woman’s Club of Evanston for our wedding reception! Dana was an amazing support throughout the whole year leading up to our big day. She was organized and professional, answering our questions (and calls from our parents!) It was the perfect size venue for our guest count of 170. There are adorable side rooms, which we used for photos and during the cocktail hour. The upstairs stage was perfect for our DJ. Everyone felt comfortable in the space, which was our main priority!” -Katy B. 2019 via The Knot

“We had our wedding reception here nearly a month ago and had absolutely no regrets about using the Woman’s Club of Evanston for our wedding. We had our wedding on a Sunday, and the location couldn’t be beat, walking distance to the hotels our out-of-town guests were staying at, free parking (on Sundays) in the garage across the street (across Chicago Ave). The venue itself is beautiful both inside and out, it’s a historical building and everything is just so picturesque. We initially were working with Jessica, whose role was taken over by Dana, and both were a pleasure to work with. Both were extremely patient in answering my many questions, and extremely organized. The day of the wedding, Dana and the staff at The Woman’s Club of Evanston made everything run extremely smoothly and worked well with my friend that was coordinating. It’s a unique space, so beautiful, I wish the night could have lasted longer and we could have enjoyed more of the event!” -Christine L. 2019, via Yelp
