“We had our wedding at the WCOE this past December and the venue was perfect. The remodel is stunning and means less decorations are necessary since the venue speaks for itself. It’s also nice that the tables and chairs are included, as are the dishes, so there’s no need to worry about anything extra like that. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all there, which was perfect for a December wedding since guests didn’t have to travel.” – Miranda 2024 via Google

“Woman’s Club of Evanson was everything we were looking for! The venue is absolutely stunning. It felt so elegant and classy yet very comfortable and warm. Most importantly, Gretchen and her team were absolutely wonderful to work with from day one. They were so accommodating of all of our requests/questions and were extremely available and communicative throughout the process. Their warm hospitality was evident from the start, and they overall made the planning process seamless and fun!” – Maura 2024 via The Knot

“Gretchen at the Woman’s Club of Evanston was nothing but AMAZING! She listened to my concerns, questions, and simple wonderings. She was able to help reassure that she would do she could to make sure everything was executed flawlessly. The Woman’s Club of Evanston does have a list of preferred vendors for catering and security. Catering options had a range of prices and cuisine. She explained that they had preferred catering and security since those vendors are extremely well equipped to help in everyday. Overall, my day was fantastic and the spaces that the Woman’s Club of Evanston have are unmatched.” – Maddi 2023 via The Knot

“My wife and I just had our wedding at The Woman’s Club, and we could not have been happier with our decision. The venue is absolutely beautiful, perfectly maintained with historic charm & character. We were able to host both our ceremony and reception in the upstairs ballroom, and the downstairs was used for our cocktail hour while the ballroom was changed over. This was very convenient and worked wonderfully for us and our guests. Gretchen, the venue manager, was so incredibly kind, helpful, and accommodating…it was truly a pleasure working with her. She also connected us with a caterer from their approved list, J&L Catering, who knew the room very well and did an amazing job on all fronts. We would recommend The Woman’s Club to anyone looking to plan a wedding or throw an event. It is a very special place.” – Jacob 2023 via Zola

“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
