We absolutely fell in love with this venue. It was such a beautiful space! We wanted a homey feel to our wedding and using Wilder Mansion definitely gave us that. It was so personal and intimate. The staff was amazing and so helpful. They were very hands on and communicated really well with us. I am so happy that we decided to have our special day here because it exceeded everything we wanted and more! We also really loved the green house at the mansion. We took some pictures there because we had a very cold wedding and those pictures came out great! If you are considering this venue, I promise you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I got married at the Wilder Mansion in October 2016! We had the best time and are so happy we selected the Wilder Mansion as our venue. From our initial visit we knew that the Wilder Mansion was going to be our wedding venue- it had everything we wanted (which was an outdoor garden area for the ceremony with a great reception space) plus they had amazing women working at the Mansion! Words cannot describe the kindness and passion that the women of the Wilder Mansion have. They also have great recommended vendors for the area- DJ Jim Mast, Marco from Cafe Amano, Karen from Blossoms and Branches, the DoubleTree hotel in Oakbrook to name a few. Our wedding had about 160 guests and the space was perfect- the flow of the Mansion is non-traditional (due to the upstairs and downstairs as well as the dinner being served in many rooms) but it worked!

Our experience at Wilder Mansion was nothing less than extraordinary! The venue is stunning all on its own; we had some flowers and table linens, but didn't bring in any other decor-the mansion doesn't need it! Our coordinator was amazing and took care of every tiny detail. (Thanks Krysten!!!!) Plus, the mansion is much more afford than any other venue we looked at!

The staff at the Wilder Mansion are so helpful. They are welcoming and very positive which makes you even more excited about your event. They are very responsive and take the extra time to make sure you really see the site and answer your questions. This venue is so beautiful from the Mansion to the Gardens. It's truly a hidden treasure. Heather is amazing!

Having our wedding ceremony and reception at Wilder Mansion was the BEST decision we could have made for our wedding! This review space is not nearly big enough to tell you about how amazing they are. Our wedding was September 17, 2016. We wanted a simple, elegant wedding, and wanted everything in one place to make it easier for us and our guests. Our ceremony was in the formal garden, which was paved and covered so easy to walk to, but also secluded with foliage and flowers - so amazing. The mansion itself just oozes character - and there's not a bad picture anywhere if you tried! They have a list of preferred caterers which made that hunt easier too, and a sound system we got to use so we didn't have to hire a DJ. The staff though are what made our wedding so amazing!! From start to finish they handled so much for us that we were able to coast through on our big day. Meagan and Heather, who we worked with the most, are such amazing people. They are patient and friendly, and were quick to respond to my (somewhat massive) emails filled with questions. The Wilder team did so much for us on our big day, including setting up and taking down decorations, helping our guests get around, helping us with the sound system, packing up our car at the end, and even following up with our florist when she was late with our flower delivery. But they didn't stop there - when they found out the florist's car broke down and wouldn't make it in time for the ceremony, the Wilder team not only drove out to meet the van and rescue our flowers, but they also wanted to make sure I had a bouquet to carry, so they chopped up one of the mansion's floral arrangements and MADE me a bouquet to carry! Your wedding day will be amazing and a dream on its own, but the team at Wilder Mansion truly and honestly made our day SO MUCH MORE SPECIAL. Thank you and love to Meagan, Heather, and all the people at Wilder!

Booking the Wilder Mansion was a fantastic choice! We live oversees and were only back in the US for a week prior to our wedding, but working with Heather at the mansion made everything run smoothly and stress free. The vendors she recommended were all great, and she and all the staff at the mansion were terrific the day of the wedding. We had both the ceremony and reception there and the mansion was beautiful and perfect for our smaller sized wedding.

It was so easy to deal with the staff. My ceremony was in the Formal Garden, the pictures came out amazing. The staff made the rehearsal run so smooth, they coordinated how we would walk down the aisle and spoke with the officant to make sure we were all on the same page. On The Day Of They Made Sure everything went off without a hitch, even when we had to push the ceremony back by 30 minutes.
