Whether your wedding is taken from the pages of The Great Gatsby or the colorful Moroccan markets of Marrakech; the sunset beaches of California or the frescoed-walls of an Italian villa, our job is to tell your story.

Our engaged couples have busy professional and social lives and when you’re reflecting back on your wedding day, we want you to remember the beauty of the day, the celebration and excitement, and most of all, the love of the friends and family who surrounded you – not the effort it took to plan.  The Gilded Aisle Weddings offers a variety of destination and Chicago wedding packages to meet your wedding planning needs.

uniquely timeless events  

From the first meeting to the last dance, our Full Wedding Planning and Design package is for the couple who would rather enjoy their engagement than spend it planning. It begins with an in-depth consultation to discuss your style and vision for your wedding. From there, we create a comprehensive plan for curating what will be an exceptionally beautiful and memorable day. After the initial planning stages, we begin making appointments, convenient to your schedule, with ceremony and reception locations, photographers, musicians, floral/décor designers, custom stationers and more. We accompany you to all local vendor meetings, site visits, tastings and final dress fittings. Additionally, we review contracts and ensure that you are comfortable with and understand all the details before you sign. On the day of your wedding, we are there to ensure that you are able to relax and revel in the beauty of the day and the love of family and friends that surrounds you.

Designed for the couple who has planned a majority of their wedding, our Wedding Day Management package is a “peace of mind” essential. We help pull everything together in the final weeks in addition to acting as your wedding day advocate and ensuring everything comes off exactly as you envisioned. Approximately two months prior to your wedding date, we’ll meet in person or virtually for the first of two meetings. During the initial meeting, we go over all the loose-ends as well as details of your wedding day so appropriate timelines can be devised. A subsequent meeting will be set up for a final walk-through of the wedding and reception sites. Clients have the use of our planning software throughout the duration of their planning period. Package includes a complimentary consultation prior to booking as well as the following…

our credentials

Love has no boundaries, why should your wedding location. Whether it be a stunning palazzo overlooking Lake Como, a vineyard nestled into the Italian countryside or the crystal-white sand beaches of a Caribbean or Hawaiian Island, we have found that what makes a destination wedding so powerful is the intimacy and immense feeling of love you experience -- not just for a few hours but often for the several days your family and friends come together to celebrate your vows.

With our team’s years of experience, backed by industry travel education and a roster of acclaimed international vendors, we’ll guide you through the legalities of getting married in a foreign country and make sure that wedding planning decisions made from afar are effortless. Further intertwining creativity with our unparalleled level of service and attention to detail, we not only take care of you but your guests as well. We’re truly devoted to exceptional client and guest experience.
