Getting Ready

We delight in being a part of your journey down the aisle, providing not just a wedding ceremony venue, but an experience that begins long before the first vow is spoken. Our private suite, nestled upstairs away from the hustle and bustle, offers a serene sanctuary for you and your bridal party to prepare for the ceremony. It’s a place where every detail is catered to, allowing you to dress, reflect, and share moments of anticipation in the comfort of an intimate and luxurious setting. We understand that the magic of your wedding day starts with the preparation, and we’ve crafted our bridal suite to be the perfect beginning to your happily ever after.

Wedding Ceremony

We take immense pride in offering The Palm Room that serves as the heart of your wedding ceremony. This majestic space is designed to accommodate your guests comfortably, ensuring that everyone can share in the joy and splendor of your special day. The expansive room radiates elegance and grace, with high ceilings and beautiful lighting casting an ethereal glow that complements the love-filled atmosphere. Whether you envision a lavish affair with a large wedding party or a more intimate gathering, our venue adapts to fit your dream ceremony perfectly.

Cocktail Hour

While your guests await the arrival of the newlyweds, they can enjoy a memorable cocktail hour in one of our many unique spaces. In the top-rated Chicago wedding spots, Mae District offers you various options to suit your taste and celebration. Our historic Jades Room is a favorite cocktail room with its floor-to-ceiling windows, herringbone floor and built-in bar. Or, opt for cocktails outdoors in The Secret Garden, with its slightly more laid-back, urban setting. We offer some of the most sought-after intimate wedding venues in Chicago.


Mae District also offers larger cocktail hour spaces to accommodate bigger groups. The light and luxurious Palm Room can easily host 200 guests, and Junes Room is spacious enough for 200. We invite you to visit all our Chicago wedding places to choose the one that will serve as an unforgettable backdrop for your cocktail hour. 

Wedding Reception

We are proud to present our two wedding banquet halls — Junes and Jades, the crown jewels of our wedding venue — with catering that is elevated for your elegant and grand wedding reception. These spacious reception halls are designed to host celebrations of love that are as boundless as they are beautiful. Jades, with its classic charm, and Junes, reflecting a modern grace, both ballrooms offer ample room for dining, dancing and making memories. Our expert planners are the maestros behind the scenes, orchestrating every detail from grand entrances to the last dance. They work tirelessly to ensure that the flow of your reception is seamless in our large ballrooms, which are designed for moments of splendor and celebration.
