About

So you’re engaged! We’ve got this, together.


Did you know that Wedding Guide Chicago is Chicago’s only magazine dedicated to wedding planning? As the Windy City’s premiere wedding resource, we understand better than anyone that there is just SO. MUCH. INFORMATION! coming at couples from every direction. Of course, a wealth of options is a good problem to have, but that doesn’t make it any less overwhelming for engaged couples and their families. Well, fear not—we take our role as Wedding Guide seriously. Our seasoned staff of talented industry professionals happily vets, sifts and sorts the crazy cacophony of available options into one beautiful, shiny, digestible package. (So digestible, in fact, it’ll fit right in your purse!) We exist to provide you and your family with the most coveted trends and up-to-date information while making sure the basics are all there to keep you on track and organized as your big day approaches.

Boutique magazine. Mega planning power!

We’re so proud of our wonderful little magazine. It’s gained a huge following! Today we’re relied upon by more than one million couples every year as their primary resource, guiding them through each stage of the planning process as they dream their way to the big day. Wedding Guide Chicago is more than a magazine; it’s a functional planning tool. The magazine’s smaller size makes life for brides and grooms easier because they can take it with them everywhere. Our readers get fully engaged with the magazine, circling ideas, writing notes, and continually referencing pages. Published twice a year, in June and December, every page of the magazine features the best of the best—top wedding vendors whom we are so happy and comfortable referring to our readers, inspirational Partyscape photo shoots, helpful articles, printable checklists and tools, and Real CHICago Weddings.

The perfect marriage of print, online and social media resources.
Couples and wedding vendors alike appreciate our approach of harmoniously marrying a printed magazine with an expansive website and constantly-updated social media channels. It may be a lot to manage, but our team is more than up to the task, as it allows us to engage with our audience so directly, and so thoroughly. Our magazine is a tangible, hands-on resource that couples use for inspiration and planning. It keeps them organized and on track. Our website offers such depth of inspiration, including Real CHICago weddings featuring beautiful work from Chicago’s most talented local wedding professionals. These are updated all the time, providing you with refreshing inspiration, complete with links you can share with family and friends, and images to pin to your Pinterest boards. Meanwhile, our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts are updated multiple times a day, delivering eye candy, helpful articles and tips throughout the day.
