The Wilder Mansion is the PERFECT setting for a romantic, intimate celebration. We had about 130 guests and everyone said it was the best wedding they'd been too and had so much fun.

Planning this amazing wedding was so much easier because of the wonderful staff at Wilder. Meagan, Heather, and the others are so professional and answered any questions I had so quickly! It is very reasonable too for the beautiful space & outdoor garden.

My husband and I just had our wedding reception at the Wilder Mansion. From day one, the staff was so helpful. Meagan and Heather made sure that our day was nothing less than perfect. It was perfect. From recommending vendors to answering every question that we had; they were on top of everything. The Mansion was the perfect setting for our intimate reception and exactly what we pictured it to be. It is beautiful to begin with, but when we walked in the day of our wedding we were just in awe. So were our guests. We only needed one floor for our small reception of about 70 guests, but we were still able to use the second floor for pictures, the bridal room, etc. Thank you for making our day so memorable, it will truly be a day we will never forget!

The Wilder Mansion made a for a perfect wedding day! The venue was fabulous, so beautiful and spacious, allowed for various happenings at the same time - dancing in one louder room, conversations in a quieter room, eating and drinking in another! The staff was incomparable! they took care of everything, every detail. They answered all my questions, pointed me to all that I needed to do and helped in so many ways. I would definitely do it there again if I had to do it all over again!

Both were very friendly and professional and made this experience easy for me as a bride. I cannot think of words (or praise) big enough for the venue and its staff.

The Mansion is amazing! The coordinators you work with are fantastic-responsive, professional, helpful. Anything you could ask for in a venue! The pictures are beautiful, you can't get bad photos in such a stunning place. The garden ceremony was perfect. We even get a personalized brick in the garden walkway. Their preferred vendors are good too. Great place, I look forward to hosting another event there in the future!

Meagan and everyone at the Mansion were such a big help. Meagan always quickly answered my many questions, which was a great relief since I planned the wedding from NYC. The mansion itself is a beautiful spot to be married at, with many amenities and a certain amount of flexibility you don't always get with professional venues. My husband had a great time and we highly recommend Wilder Mansion!

We were so pleased with our ceremony & reception at Wilder Mansion from start to finish. The Wilder Mansion staff made planning our wedding fun & stress free! Meagan responded to our emails & phone calls promptly & with enthusiasm. Heather was very thorough when meeting with us to discuss our rehearsal and wedding day itinerary. Lindsay was our contact person for the rehearsal and day of the wedding. I felt like she was part of the family and truly cared about making our day perfect. The rental fee was priced very reasonably and there were no surprise costs at the end. Its great knowing that the money supports the Park District as the Mansion and gardens are owned by the Elmhurst Park District. The Mansion was very well kept and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Our guests were so excited with the venue and everyone loved that it was something unique and not your typical banquet hall. We just got our pictures and the venue both inside and out looks amazing as a backdrop! Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our choice of Wilder Mansion for our wedding venue. We highly recommend Wilder Mansion for a wedding or any other event!

I had my wedding here on Sept. 3, 2011 everything went excellent. Meagan and her staff were extremely nice and helpful. The garden was beautiful and the park added a nice touch for the kids. LOL, even I got on the swings. The location is nice and central in between downtown Chicago and the western suburbs. On top of all of this my wedding was affordable for a guest list to 450 people. Don't miss out on this opportunity. You will love Wilder Mansion.

Wilder Mansion is an amazing venue. We rented the entire building for both the ceremony and reception and we wouldn't have changed a thing. The building is beautiful but comfortable -- like you are at a party at your own home, if your own home was an elegant mansion. Our guests had only raves for this place -- it felt vintage but not old in any way. The management team is very flexible, professional, and there for anything you need. I couldn't recommend Wilder Mansion highly enough -- a fabulous place!

Wilder is gorgeous! I'm so happy we found it and made our ceremony and reception unique. We only used the first floor (and only had to pay for the first floor!). Meagan and Heather (the wedding coordinators) were top notch, responsive, and easy to work with. The bridal suite is awesome and we used the greenhouse to photos before the ceremony. The divided rooms are a little difficult to work with (this is what makes the space beautiful), but if you're planning on having a smaller more intimate wedding this is the place! Thanks so much Wilder!

Wilder Mansion was a dream venue. From the responsiveness of Megan and her team to the execution of the event, we were thrilled every step of the way. My husband and I live in Chicago and we originally were looking for a venue in the city but when we looked at prices and what we got for the cost we expanded our search the the suburbs. When we found Wilder Mansion we were shocked to find that we could get a beautiful venue for a fraction of what a venue costs in Chicago. The setting is beautiful being across the street from Elmhurt College and on the same property as the Elmhurt Art Museum. Any time we had a question we could email Megan and we always had a quick response. They even provided a day of cooridinator (Heather) who helped us run the Rehearsal and was a God send for the day of the wedding. We highly recommend Wilder Mansion for ANY function and we will be happy to use them again.

SOOO happy with Wilder--- they were very affordable, split the price for us because we only wanted to hold the ceremony there. The seating was set up when we arrived, and with a few home made decor items and flowers, the space was stunning. Our photos looked gorgeous and the event coordinator Megan was my savior. Seriously. Little things that I didn't even think about she took care of for my like carrying my bouquet down the stairs and arranging my train before I walked in...she even cued the musicians for me. She was just fantastic. Highly recommended.

The Wilder Mansion is a beautiful place to have a wedding! The price is very reasonable and the rental includes tables and chairs. The rooms are gorgeous and it really sets an elegant tone for a wedding. It is also beautifully landscaped. I was generally very pleased with the service at the Wilder Mansion- the only reason I did not rate it 5 out of 5 for quality of service is that my contact person at the mansion changed just a few weeks before the wedding. Even so, everyone I worked with was professional and helpful. I would highly recommend it as a wedding venue!

The Wilder was very helpful and worked with our caterer and DJ so that the reception flowed smoothly. We didn't have to worry about anything once we got there. Beautiful space. Unique. Doesn't require any decoration. I loved that we weren't stuck at tables all night since dinner was only on the second floor and then we came down. it did make interacting with all the guests difficult; we had to work during dinner to see everyone. Also, it made it really easy for people to NOT dance, which meant the DJ had to work harder to keep people dancing. They let us use sparklers for the send off and were great about helping us to coordinate everything. Note: they don't allow beer kegs or straight liquor; we had to have at least 50% mix.

Doesn't require any decoration. I loved that we weren't stuck at tables all night since dinner was only on the second floor and then we came down. it did make interacting with all the guests difficult; we had to work during dinner to see everyone. Also, it made it really easy for people to NOT dance, which meant the DJ had to work harder to keep people dancing. They let us use sparklers for the send off and were great about helping us to coordinate everything. Note: they don't allow beer kegs or straight liquor; we had to have at least 50% mix. Read less

Meagan and Heather are wonderful to work with. This venue is very beautiful, we only paid $1000 for the entire first floor. The only thing is that you have to work with their caters or pay $500 to work with another one. Mansion is old but in wonderful shape.
