Venue is absolutely gorgeous, the dining hall with huge glass panes is something to behold. With how absolutely amazing the front is, you would think it is a perfect venue. So why the low score, right?
It turned out that the beautiful facade is all that place had to offer.
from the very beginning, their staff was responsive, and willing to work with us... until they realized that we wanted a Sunday event, and once the deposit was paid things got even worse. Once we were locked in and could no longer cancel, all responsiveness stopped, help disappeared, and one line email replies became the only thing we could get.
That was the case until I sent an email saying that I wanted to pay for chairs. And, what do you know, they became super willing to work with me.. until my check cleared.
Jill, the "director" flat out lied to my now wife, claimed that certain things were discussed with my MIL (they weren't.. we were on the speakerphone, but kept quiet).
The entire experience felt like they were trying to get back at us for getting a Sunday rate. We were not allowed into the venue until the MINUTE AFTER scheduled time.
Had it not been for our own coordinator, things would have been a complete chaos.
they double booked us.
they double booked our rehearsal time with another bride, and claimed that they told us bout it (never happened). "director" refused to meet with us, and kept dodging calls/visits, sending her assistant in (who did not have answers)
On the day of, the grass was uncut, bushes and park areas were unkempt to say the least.
all in all, inside of the venue is amazing. With better leadership and workers, this place can become what is once was - a beautiful venue worth the money.
As it stands right now, look elsewhere, unless you're on an enormous budget and ok with being milked.

The moment I saw Danada, I knew that was where I would be married. We had a gorgeous, snowy winter day for our wedding two weeks ago, and Danada was the perfect setting!
From start to finish, working with Jill at Danada was an absolute pleasure. She was so helpful with all of my questions, and she had many good suggestions for vendors.
The price we paid to have the house from 9am-1am was more than we budgeted for, but I wouldn't change it if I did it all over again. It is 100% worth the price - you get so much more value than what you pay. The grounds are breathtaking no matter what season, and the bridal room is SO gorgeous. I had seven bridesmaids, and we all fit very comfortably in it on the morning of the wedding when we were getting ready. We added the coat check on for our guests, which came in handy because of how cold and snowy it was.
Our ceremony was in the atrium, and the Danada staff did a wonderful job getting it ready for the reception after the ceremony ended.
The house and the atrium were both decorated for Christmas, and it was lovely. We didn't have to go overboard with centerpieces and other decorations because the venue itself is so beautiful. Our guests were completely floored by how breathtaking the venue was - and, to top it all off, we had beautiful snow all throughout our ceremony and reception, which looked perfect through the windows of the atrium!
We are so grateful for Jill and the other wonderful women who helped make our wedding night a dream come true!

We just got married at the Danada House on Sunday, September 25,2016. It was so beautiful, better than I ever imagined. The Danada House books up quickly, was one of the reasons we chose a Sunday wedding. We had our ceremony and reception and pictures there. We were totally fine with this and payed a little more to be able to have the House the whole day. It was so nice not to rush and enjoy the day. I was concerned because I did not a have day of coordinator but the girls at the Danada house stepped in and did this for us! Thank you! They were very responsive and very easy to work with.

We booked Danada House (Dan-AE-da) about 16mo out from our wedding date by a struck of luck off a wait list, and after having our wedding there I could surely understand why there is a waitlist. The venue is a flat fee service with a per chair pricing for ceremonies clearly stated in black & white on there website. They have a preferred pre-certified caterer list that is convenient. We used La Cuisine, and I would highly recommend them. We had an outdoor ceremony in the beautifully outdoor ceremony site just off the sunrooms where the cocktail hour is held. The reception was in the well maintained atrium space with wall to wall glass outlooking the landscape with access to the outdoor deck with a decorative pool.

Some highlights include the beautiful landscaping. Because we had originally visited in the winter, we had not seen all the wonderful landscaping that the Danada staff manage in the warmer months. It gave us great areas to take pictures and made the venue picturesque for our ceremony. The price is also reasonable for the surrounding area. Although other venues offer full included catering and what not, I felt this venue offered more in space and beauty at a better price.

To note, I felt that calling was always best to get a hold of them. I tried emails before and often found better response times with just calling. That being said, I found most wedding services are unreachable on fri, sat, sun as they are busy with other weddings. My tip would be just be prepared to leave voicemails to be replied the follow weekdays or just call during the weekdays.

Additionally, as this location in a component of Dupage County and not a private, for-profit venue they follow the forest preserve rules on open fires and littering. They have clear instructions on whats allowed and not, and you should expect no exceptions. All reasonable requirements, not of which we found hindering.

I had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Danada House last weekend, and I couldn't have dreamed a better wedding. I was initially apprehensive since we had to have a Sunday wedding. This venue books FAST. There were only Sundays left a year and a half out, but I am so glad we went with the Danada House. The staff was amazing and helped make everything run smoothly. My guests were blown away at how gorgeous the grounds were and raving that this was the best wedding they've been to. It was perfect!

I recently had my wedding at this venue and could not have been happier with how everything went. Jill and Lori were available by email prior to the event and responded quickly. We were able to leave our homemade decor at the venue the night before the wedding which really helped with day of chaos. The bridal suite was clean, beautiful, and spacious. Our guests could not comment enough on the beauty of the grounds and the house. Lori was there for our whole wedding and was always available if we needed her or had any questions throughout the event. Highly recommend this venue!

The Danada House was our dream-wedding venue. We looked at it over a year and half in advance and were disappointed to learn that there were not any openings until over two years later for a Saturday. Being a teacher, it was important to me to get married in the summer. I inquired many times about cancellations until finally we got a call from Jill telling us that there was an opening in July. The only problem was, we had already put down a deposit on another venue. We decided to just cut our losses and book the Danada House anyway. I am honestly so happy we did because it ended up being the most GORGEOUS wedding venue I could have ever imagined.

Everything about this venue was perfect for our wedding. What I especially loved was how beautiful the Danada House gardens were for our wedding pictures. It is just such a breathtaking venue and I heard throughout the night from guests, “Wow this place is beautiful!”

In addition to the venue itself, I found the staff at the Danada House helpful and friendly. We had the best wedding day and are so thankful we were able to have our wedding at Danada House.

My husband and I chose this venue because it is stunningly beautiful and located on an equestrian property. It is very well kept, and made for phenomenal pictures. However, we didn't have very much contact with the representatives of the venue itself; we worked mostly through our caterer, who was amazing (True Cuisine, Wood Dale, IL).

When we emailed I was never quite sure who would respond as several people seem to run the same email address. However, everyone was very polite, just not very involved. We also had quite a bit of trouble getting a date early on, as it books fast and they only allow people to actually put a deposit down 18 months in advance. Our date, however was "reserved" by someone who had put their name down before my husband and I were even engaged! We had to adjust to a Friday date that became available to use the venue, though we had originally wanted a Saturday wedding.

It was also a bit pricey for the sole purpose of renting out the space, as we paid for all rentals and food separately. However, ultimately it was worth it to have our perfect venue.
