We were suppose to have our ceremony outside. They have a beautiful area. Mother nature decided to throw a wrench into the plans. We had a massive storm come through just 4 hours prior to start time and it lasted about 1 1/2 hours. When I talked to Chris 90 minutes before we were to start she said she knew how much we wanted the ceremony to be outside and gave me her word that it would be ready in time. Although I was skeptical, she came through!! I have no idea what they did, but the grounds were clean and dry!! The rest of the neighborhood looked like a tornado came through and our ceremony area looked as if it was the only thing not touched. Chris, Allie, Lisa and the rest of the staff at The Arboretum are without a doubt a PLEASURE to work with. Everything from day 1 of walking into the Arboretum to days after when I picked up stuff we had left there, they are the friendliest and most compassionate staff I have worked with. We offered 3 different entree's and everybody was saying how good their's was.

Some people may overlook customer service for other things, but this place does not. They will make sure you are stress free for any event you are looking to have.

My partner and I finally decided to tie the know after 21 years, now that it's legal in Illinois. We planned our wedding in just five weeks! Everyone at The Arboretum Club was phenomenal to work with. They were flexible, had great ideas and suggestions. Our wedding was fantastic and we would not have changed a thing! I would completely recommend and encourage anyone to use The Arboretum Club for any event. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful, the reception room was stunning, the food was fantastic, and the service was flawless.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Arboretum Club only two days ago and couldn't wait any longer to rave about what a wonderful experience it was! We began planning with Allie, the Sales Manager. She was very warm, approachable, and accommodating from day 1. She never made us feel uneasy about coming to her at any time with our questions, and was always very prompt about answering us, along with giving us great advice along the way. We also dealt with Chris Smith, the Director of Sales and Catering, and she was just as amazing. She took the time to listen to what we wanted, and made sure that she followed through. We always felt that our opinions were important at The Arboretum Club, and that was just the planning process! The actual day of the wedding absolutely exceeded our wildest dreams!! We were greeted at the door by Allie, who let us know exactly how the flow of the night would go, which was reassuring, because time seemed to fly by so quickly that day! We were able to take photos with our bridal party, and then Allie handed us the keys to our bridal golf cart where we were whisked away to take photos on their gorgeous course. There are so many beautiful photo opportunities there! When we returned back, Allie gave my husband and I a sneak peak at the reception room before any of our guests entered. I was speechless. The staff did such an absolutely amazing job at decorating. We did the pipe&drape behind our head table with uplighting, along with uplighting in the corners of the room, and the drape in the center of the ceiling. It was gorgeous. Our cake was displayed in the middle of the dance floor, and it came out perfectly-- just as we described it to Allie a few weeks before. The Arboretum has a contract with Lovin Oven (included with the hall package!) and we later found out it was also extremely delicious!! Overall, the night flowed flawlessly and it felt like a dream. I would recommend The Arboretum Club to any future couple!!

Our daughter had her reception here last Sat. What a pleasure to work with The Arboretum Club staff. It is so nice to be the only event - plenty of room for our guests and such attentive service.
Beautifully done from start to finish. The food was delicious and was just like we had tasted (even better!) Thank you for a wonderful experience. We will use this venue again.

The Arboretum as a wedding venue exceeded our expectations on our wedding day and during the planning process. We had our ceremony at a local church and the reception at the Arboretum. We worked with Allie and Chris in preparing for our day, and they promptly answered our phone calls and helped us figure out our options. They were very professional and a pleasure to work with.
On the actual wedding day, Herman, Lisa and Allie were present. The level of service during the entire reception was excellent, and we received many compliments on the set-up, food and décor. The staff also worked well with our day-of wedding coordinator to make everything run smoothly. Herman and his team did a wonderful job with the set-up, dinner service, and closing everything down at the end of the night. They were available to help our family members and friends with whatever they needed, which we really appreciated. Some of our guests even said it was "the best wedding they had been to!" We are very happy we chose the Arboretum.

We absolutely could not have asked for a better day! Cris and Allie are absolute Godsends and we could not have had the day we wanted without all of their help and advice. The entire staff of the Arboretum Club is professional, kind, and welcoming. The food was great, the ceremony site was perfect, and the reception hall was stunning. They made sure every detail was precisely how we wanted it. We would recommend this venue a million times over. Thanks for the incredible day and memories!

We had our wedding at the Arboretum Club this past Friday. First of all, I have to say Allie is amazing! When we first walked in we felt so welcomed and she was so sweet. After talking, for just a few minutes, I knew we had to book them for our venue. They didn't have the date we wanted available at first and I was very stuck on the date I had originally wanted but I loved the place so much that I agreed to change the date to a Friday instead. I had a few other places I wanted to check out but I skipped visiting them because I fell in love with the Arboretum club. It was beautiful, clean and I loved all they had to offer. I obviously made the right choice because all of my guests have been complimenting us on how great everything was. I keep getting comments saying it was the nicest wedding they have ever been too and the best food they have ever tasted, especially at a wedding. The food was beyond amazing!! The whole place was perfect for pictures and the golf cart, all nicely decorated for newlyweds, was a cute little extra. We had our ceremony outside under the gazebo and that was perfect as well. We had asked them to decorated it (with decorations we provided) and they did a wonderful job. It was a beautiful day, thankfully, but it was sunny and the gazebo had just the right amount of shade so the sun wasn't blinding us. They made sure the room was done nicely and even made sure I approved. Which I did because it was even more beautiful than I had imagined in my head. They paid attention to details and set up the room perfectly. I am more than pleased with our venue choice and will recommend them to all of my friends that are planning on having an event. My uncle is even planning to come back and golf there. Thank you for making my dream wedding become a reality! Love this place and the staff.

We booked the Arboretum Club for our reception after looking all over the area for the perfect place- so glad we did! Allie was great to work with and kept on top of everything we wanted. She was in contact with us all before the wedding and was there that day as well. Everything looked perfect, and the food was wonderful. Everyone commented on the great service as well. I loved having the patio available to people for the cocktail hour - we put a game of bags out there that added some fun to the cocktail hour. I would definitely recommend to anyone planning their wedding!

We are so happy that we chose the Arboretum Club as the venue for our wedding. We worked with both Chris and Allie during the planning process and they were both great. They responded to emails very quickly and ultimately made our planning so easy. On our big day, everything looked so fantastic and we didn't have to worry about a thing. The food was amazing and tasted exactly the same as it did at our tasting. If I had to do the day over again, I would definitely pick the Arboretum Club again!

My husband and I only looked at 4 venues and knew right away that we would have a great experience at Arboretum Club. They were more than accommodating in every request we had. My dad works for Pepsi and when I found out they served the "other" product, I knew my dad would be hesitant. They immediately assured us that only Pepsi products would be served. I'd like to say I was a pretty easy going bride and they made the process that much easier. Chris is exceptional! My parents live out of state and she made me feel at ease with every concern I had. Between her and Allie, they responded to any email in a timely manner and if they didn't have the answer immediately, they responded as soon as they could. If I could do my wedding all over again, I would book this venue in a heart beat! My husband and I, our families and friends had a fantastic night. The food was amazing and the selection at the bar was top notch. They were also so helpful keeping all of my other vendors in the loop. I cannot say enough good things about this place!!

Chris was awesome to work with on our planning. Allie was helpful too with the rehearsal dinner planning and menu with a couple of weeks notice before the wedding. Chris made suggestions, was always there to answer questions and make sure everything ran smoothly. The day of I think I surprised her when myself and one of the bridemaids went there early to check everything out. She let us look around even though she was with another client and still took time out to see if I had any questions. German and the staff took care of us during the reception and even made sure to leave cake for us on the table. Everyone was very attentive, service and food were great. If you can, you should definitely go with the ceiling drapery as it really makes the room look elegant. Oh and for the food tasting, don't eat before you go as you eat enough for a week that one seating. It was nice to have the ceremony and reception in one place and have the food and cake included all in one package. It was amazing how quickly the ceremony space was turned over for the reception. Chris works with you on the layout of the room as well. As we had started with the ceremony on the window side and moved it to the non-window side and it looked amazing.

Chris helped us plan the wedding from Georgia to make sure our special day would be perfect. All the people that collaborated with services were wonderful. We for sure had a wonderful wedding for an affordable price. We highly recommend The Arboretum Club.

I loved getting married here. I went to several different venues and this place literally had the whole package. I love that everything is included in the price of per person. There are not a lot of extras they make you pay for. 4 hours of open bar, salad, soup, intermezzo, coffee, main meal and cake all for the price of an entree. I worked with Chris and Allie and everytime I had a questions, they got back to me right away. The day went smoothly thanks to Allie, and I had to worry about NOTHING. Everyone raved about how beautiful my wedding was, and I really did not put any extra effort into it than what was provided. I would reccomend this place to anyone, especially on a budet. You dont need to spend 50 thousand dollars to have an elegant wedding.

I was married in August 2013 and this was where my husband and I had our reception. It was amazing. I had so many ideas in my head from Pinterest, from my parents, from magazines, that I didn't think that anything could match up to what I had thought up. We visited many potential spaces but nothing was grabbing our eye. As soon as we entered the Arboretum Club's space and met their staff we knew we had found our dream space. There are so many great things I could go on and on but I'll focus on what was important to us.
First and foremost: Price. We were on a budget and with a Chicago area wedding in mind that doesn't leave many options. We sat down with the coordinator and after finding ways to cut some costs (skipping on the lobster and having chicken) (choosing less expensive appetizers) (choosing chair covers instead of fancy chairs)...etc.. we found ourselves with a budget we could make happen.
Next, We had a guest count of 250 and had been having trouble finding a space that could fit that for a reasonable price. The Arboretum Club totally worked!
Next, we wanted good food. This place has AMAZING food! Seriously, guests went up to my mom and complimented her on the food after just the first soup course! They made their food from scratch and it's amazing.
Next, we didn't want to deal with a million vendors. This place almost includes it all... food, decor, open bar, space (indoor and outdoor), brides room, nice restrooms, even the wedding cake is included in the cost. The only vendors we brought in were flowers, photo booth, photography/video, and a sound system.
We also wanted it to look classy. This place was so great! So many compliments on how beautiful the wedding was and I felt so great about it all! The pictures on the course and around the trees were beautiful. Also, they only have one space here for weddings so yours is the ONLY wedding going on that night. Which is incredible.
You WON'T regret having your wedding here!

I can't say enough great things about the Arboretum Club. We worked with Chris and Allie while planning our wedding. They were both extremely friendly, helpful, organized, and so quick to respond to any questions. I was blown away with how beautiful the room looked the day of. German was also super helpful and fun to work with. The food was awesome at the tasting- and just as great at our wedding! Our guests raved about the filet and the butternut squash ravioli. The day of service was excellent. Our band even commented on how of all the weddings they've done- Arboretum by far had the best service. Our wedding turned out even more perfect than we could have imagined. We can't thank the Arboretum enough! Highly recommend!!

The Arboretum Club did a phenomenal job putting together our wedding reception. They were very flexible and willing to work with us on every little detail imaginable. Chris always answered questions with a smile on her face. Chris and Allie were a pleasure to work with. E-mail responses from the staff were prompt. The staff did a wonderful job putting together our tasting right before the wedding. My best advice to any bride is to arrive hungry. There's a lot of food!

The Arboretum Club offers a beautiful space with an indoor and outdoor bar. Since the Arboretum Club only has one wedding a night, your party gets full attention from the staff. It was very nice having the venue to ourselves.

Despite us (including wedding party) arriving a little late for pictures, Chris allowed the bride and groom to take pictures on the golf course. We really appreciated this.

The room was put together beautifully. We had a traditional head table for the wedding party with the dance floor in the center. The chair covers and ribbons added a nice touch of color to the room. When visiting guest tables, we were continuously complimented on how wonderful everything was and how good the food tasted. One guest even commented that the lemon chicken soup was the best soup he ever had. Our sweet table display was very nice, and the Arboretum Club offers numerous pastry choices. We also got comments on our delicious cake.

Chris was with us every step of the way from initial planning to the night of the reception. If we ever had any concerns, it seemed that Chris and Allie were right there both during the process and the event itself. We couldn’t have picked a better reception venue.

After touring numerous venues in the Chicago area, we chose the Arboretum Club in Buffalo Grove for our March 2013 wedding because we loved the Prairie Style building and found this venue to ultimately be one of the best values for a high quality and private event. It is wonderful to be the only wedding at this site with indoor and outdoor flexibility and we were very impressed with the attentiveness of staff every step of the way. Chris provided great support in planning the event - it ran very smoothly from our indoor ceremony (weather was too chilly to be outdoors), cocktail hour in the restaurant, and the reception which was the night of our lives! We received many compliments about the ease of our event (it was very convenient and welcoming for guests of all ages) and many people said that the food was the best wedding food that they have had (the salmon in particular!). My husband and I weren't looking to obsess over wedding details but rather enjoy the event planning and, more importantly, prepare for a happy life together - and this was a perfect venue for those goals. We look forward to returning for meals at the Wild Goose Cafe and hopefully organizing other special events in our lives together at this special place.

We held our wedding reception at The Arboretum Club in January 2013 and I can not speak highly enough of the service we received throughout the entire wedding planning process as well as the night of the reception. If you don't have a vision for your wedding, they will help you create that vision. If you do know what you want your wedding night to look like, they will make that happen as well. We had a wedding planner without having to hire one. Chris, our representative from the club, called each of our vendors prior to our reception night to make sure they had all the information they needed so we didn't have to. Our guests are still talking about how fun the night was and how good the appetizers and dinner were. There was plenty of room for guests to move around easily, our cups were always full and the staff was extremely attentive to our guests, as well as our, needs. The bridal room is huge and there is plenty of room in the bathroom so no worries about how big the dress is or how many people are in there with you. The property also offers a great ambiance inside and out for photographs no matter what time of year. I would not hesitate to host another event here and recommend it to everyone who wants a stress free wedding day. Thank you to all at the Arboretum Club who made our night perfect!

Our experience with the Arboretum Club was absolutely fantastic! They made everything so easy. Mike was able to walk us through the entire process, and helped us with our planning "hiccups" without batting an eye. On our wedding day, Chris helped us with everything. If there was anything that went wrong, no one (including us) would have ever noticed. We got lots of compliments on the food, too! They made it easy, and I am so grateful!

I could not believe how amazing this venue was. I would recommend it to anyone. The food was AMAZING, which is nearly impossible to find at a wedding. The food was identical to the food you tried at the tasting. They were very professional and willing to work with me on all my ideas. Due to weather we had to change the ceremony into indoors, and I could not have been happier. I am actually glad this happened because it was just so beautiful. I would have never wanted my wedding anywhere else and it was exactly how I pictured it. The staff made everything so easy for me. The entire process was very stress free and the staff handled everything.

Mike at the Arboretum Club did a great job of helping us plan our wedding day. He called to check in often, was always available if I called with a question, and was just a nice person to work with. He helped make sure we were on schedule with our different tasks, allowed us to drop off our things earlier in the week, and gave us suggestions when we were just done making decisions. The only downside was that Mike was not able to stay the whole night. Lisa did a nice job being invisible and making sure things went smoothly, but I really trusted Mike to make sure everything would go smoothly. He even worked with Chris to make sure we could use a Rolls Royce to pull up and drop me off down the isle, and pull it around the golfcart path so we could use it for pictures during cocktail hour. The food was honestly just ok. Most people got meat that was overcooked, but it all worked out fine because everything else was so good. I was treated wonderfully, and everything I asked for happened.

We held my daughter's wedding reception for 200 at The Arboretum Club in Buffalo Grove. I do not have enough words to express how happy I was with everything. We had them do some setting up for us and it was well worth the price to not have to worry about anything. We did not have a wedding planner but I would not have gotten any better service if I had. The food was very good...I can't say that about most weddings I have been to. We had the prime rib and the chicken dijon as a second choice. With the ranch mashed potatoes or wild rice to complement the entree and with a combination of carrots and green beans for the vegetable (a request we made) they were flawless. The broccoli cheddar soup was delicious, followed by ceasar salad; and a raspberry sorbet intermezzo before the entree made for a very nice elegant dinner.
The room looked beautiful and the backdrop for the bridal party was lovely - no simple drape here. Any questions or issues were handled quickly and efficiently. We had some guests who were gluten and dairy sensitive and they had courses for them as well. Thanks to Mike, Chris, Herman and Lisa for the fabulous experience. I recommend them all highly. You will not be disappointed!

I held my wedding reception in March 2012 at the Arboretum Club. The whole experience was wonderful. In the planning stages they were very responsive, always answering phone calls and e-mail promptly. I thought the food was excellent (we had cheddar broccoli soup, Italian salad, pecan asiago chicken, rosemary roasted red potatoes, and asparagus). The venue is modern and has windows that overlook the golf course. I liked that I was the only wedding, and that there was a separate area for the cocktail hour. The decorated golf cart made for great pictures! During the reception we never ate cake, so I asked for two pieces to take back to the hotel - and the gave me the entire rest of the cake - probably enough for 15 people! I would recommended this venue to anyone. I was very torn between this venue and another that was about $1000 cheaper (but offered a cheaper product as well). I'm very glad that I spent the extra money on a quality place that that listened to exactly what I wanted.

Chris was a pleasure to work with and very accomodating and wanted to make sure that my day was absolutely perfect (and it was). I didn't stress at all working with her.

The venue was elegant, very clean, they provided a bridal suite for me and my bridesmaids to get ready. Food was great, I would totally recommend the fillet Mignon, I received many compliments from my guests. We received excellent value for our money! Thank you Arboretum, you were wonderful!!!

The place was set up beautifully (well worth it to have them do the set up for you). They are very accomodating and so nice.

We had our wedding reception at The Arboretum Club. We couldn't be happier to have had our reception there!
The venue is gorgeous and very elegant, the service was great, and they really made it a smooth process to plan every detail for that special day.
I loved that the room had a beautiful view of the golf course, and that there's that flexibility to have your party inside the building, but also the cocktail hour outside and at the Gallery.
Another great detail, is that your reception is the only one going on at a time, you don't have multiple weddings going on on other rooms, and that makes your celebration very unique and private.
They have an excellent food selection, the food was delicious.
The decoration was exquisite. If you want to have an elegant and beautiful wedding, you can have it at The Arboretum.
There's so much space around for pictures, outdoors at the golf course or inside.
The best part is that their prices are very competitive. The cost of all of their packages are very reasonable. You get excellent value in all your wedding party services when you choose The Arboretum Club!
I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who wants to have a memorable wedding! :)

My daughter had both her wedding ceremony and reception at the Arboretum Club. We could not have been happier. Not only were they great at setting up everything exactly the way my daughter wanted it but when we had a traumatic event a few months before the wedding they stepped up and helped us plan and make decisions with kindness and patience. They were flexible as we changed our minds several times. They were there the day of the rehearsal and reception making sure that everything went according to plan. I would recommend this venue for a wedding or important event to all my friends. Thank you!

Not only were they great at setting up everything exactly the way my daughter wanted it but when we had a traumatic event a few months before the wedding they stepped up and helped us plan and make decisions with kindness and patience. They were flexible as we changed our minds several times. They were there the day of the rehearsal and reception making sure that everything went according to plan. I would recommend this venue for a wedding or important event to all my friends. Thank you! Read less

The Arboretum Club was fantastic!! The moment we walked in there we knew that it was definitely the place for us to have our wedding. The atmosphere is just beautiful and the room was absolutely perfect! Chris Snider is an absolute Angel. She worked with us so much to get the package we wanted for the price we were comfortable with. We got everything we wanted and Chris made that happen. Tracie is also amazing to work with! I feel like they're all my new friends over there, that's how easy they are to work with and get along with. They do whatever it takes to make you happy and comfortable. Always there when I had questions, responded immediately, and said "call us anytime you need anything" about 100 or more times!

The day of the event Tracie and Mike were there to make sure everything got started and German was there throughout the night. We were a little disappointed that German seemed a little MIA all night. We constantly had to hunt him down if we needed something. My photographer and videographer were escorted to their table in the lobby for dinner, and came to me about a half hour later complaining that they were still just sitting out there and hadn't been fed. Had to hunt German down to fix that. My Dad was supposed to get red jell-o instead of cake, that didn't happen, so I had to go and hunt German down again to rectify that. Being the bride I shouldn't have had to do those things. Never once did he come to me or my husband, or either of our parents to see if we needed anything or if there was anything he could do, so that was just a little disappointing. Sometimes he was great, but when it really counted, he was never around.

The food was excellent for the most part. I didn't get to eat much of it but at the tasting it was great and our guests are raving! The Bistro Chicken ROCKS!!!! We asked for our filet mignon to be cooked medium to medium well and most came out pretty rare so most of our guests didn't eat it, but other than that, everything else was great. I do think I got ripped off on my cake though. I had a pretty big cake and they cut the pieces paper thin and they insisted that there was not one piece of cake left over for us to take home. Who doesn't have wedding cake left over???

When the reception was over and the DJ finished playing his last song, the lights came on and the room was immediately attacked by their cleaning crew. I thought it was a little tacky that while I was standing on the dance floor saying goodbye to my guests they were literally tearing up the dance floor right beneath my feet. I think they could have waited like 10-15 min. while my guests left before they started stacking up chairs, tearing down tables, and vacuuming.

I would recommend The Arboretum Club for the most part. Their office staff is fantastic, even after the event, but the staff that's there the day of could use some pointers from the office staff.

Our wedding turned out beautifully! The guests are still complimenting the food even 3 weeks later! I planned and created much of my wedding myself, and the staff here were great with accommodating my needs--even down to a display for my wedding quilt!
Great options for food, decor, and help with anything you need.

The Arboretum Club was a phenomenal group to work with. My wedding was not during peak season, so the cost was significantly reduced. The food was delicious and I have a discriminating palate. The most significant thing about them is that they really moved to accommodate us during every mistake or oversight I had. Fortunately, they worked with my coordinator discreetly, and I never saw a single glitch the whole night. Beautiful, and well worth the full cost.

We were treated to splendid food and good service. Although a few of our guests were missing their name placecards. However, we received much help from Chris and Mike. Lisa was of much help also. We took good pictures on the golf course which was appreciated. Thanks for making our wedding day special.

Definitely a bang for your buck!

The Arb is a classy, affordable and convenient location for any wedding reception or event. The staff are very professional from Tracie to Chris and even to Mike~ they're easy to work with as if we have our own wedding planners! They are very flexible and would work with your budget; responds promptly either via email or phone. Their food tasting is the best and the country club is in an ideal location - easily accessible via highway or main streets, as well.

The setting for our wedding reception was just gorgeous! What a great and memorable day :) Highly recommended!!

We only had a reception at the site. The room was beautiful with the rented chiavari chairs. Standard linens, silverware, plating were nice enough to use and save money. The service from the beginning (coordinating) to the night of the event was great. Overall experience was positive. My only hesitation was that the food was average.

I had my October, 2013 wedding at the Arboretum Club. Chris Snider and Allie Smith were very helpful throughout the planning process, promptly answering all of my e-mails. My husband and I were able to bring in many of our own decorations (including live trees we rented) to make the venue look exactly how we wanted it to look. Also, we received many compliments from family and friends on the food and waitstaff at the reception.

Minus points for several reasons, all of which had to do with the end of the evening. We planned to have a Kid's Area set up after the cocktail hour. When it was still not set up well after dinner began, we were told that Allie already left for the night. I'm not sure if this is how events here normally go, but we assumed Allie would be there for the whole night. My husband and I ended up having to set up the Kid's Area ourselves. We also ended up setting our favors out ourselves, which we were told would be done for us. We planned to have a cart with hot dogs come out at the end of the night. The hot dogs were served, but not from a cart. They were placed on a table outside of the reception room. Finally, we were told that we could pick up our decorations the Sunday after our wedding. However, at the end of the night, we were told that they were having a wedding on Sunday afternoon and we had to have all of our things out of the Bridal Suite. This is NOT how I wanted to end our wedding. It was very difficult and frustrating to pack everything up at midnight in a wedding dress. They allowed us to pick some things up the next day, but we took most of it with us that night.

Overall, the planning phase, beginning, and middle of our event were fantastic; the only hiccups occurred at the end of the night. We strongly recommend that Allie (or someone in a similar management role) stay for the whole event to make sure things end smoothly.
