Metropolis Ballroom of Arlington Heights
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Choosing a function to host your wedding reception should be a carefully planned decision. The Metropolis Ballroom in Arlington Hts, IL is one of the most beautiful places to have your event! We recently had our wedding reception there, it was the first and only place we looked at :) The Metropolis is elegant and private, equipped with a full staff ready to help you at anytime. The ballroom is what "sold" us on our choice, sky high ceilings, newly finished hardwood floors, a balcony over looking downtown, and of course a 5 star menu for your guests. If you're looking for something different than the ordinary hotel, reception hall, or country club....look no further! Michael Raymond at the Metropolis Ballroom with help you with everything you need, he was wonderful and so patient with us! I will never forget our day, the beauty, and excellent management skills that made our day wonderful! Michelle & Rick Piek Wedding Date: 10/3/09

Jarosch Bakery
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I've used Jarosch Bakery in Elk Grove IL frequently, for pastries & cupcakes they're wonderful. I have to say though I wasn't thrilled with our wedding cake. Although to the bakery's defense we did not go in before hand to try the cake. The cake was beautiful to look at (hence the 3 stars). However the taste of the cake was awful, bland, and really lacking any character at all. The actual cake part tasted like cardboard. I would recommend tasting your cake first, or going somewhere else. Deerfield's Bakery is wonderful, just too pricey for us!

We loved every minute of our reception thanks to the awesome DJ we had! An Enchanted Evening in Elk Grove IL provides top notch service! We had 3 appointments with the to cover all the bases, our DJ, Dave called 2 days before our event to make sure he had everything correct. The actual music was awesome, Dave was very professional and very accomidating to our guest's request songs. He made our evening so special, and his knowledge of music (new and old songs) was a pleasant surprise! You can trust this company with your wedding no matter how big or small!

Sylvia's Flowers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
One of the most important part of our wedding was of course the floral arrangements. Sylvia's Flowers in Arlington Hts did a fabulous job, 5 stars all the way. Throughout the evening my husband and I received so many compliments on our table centerpieces, and our bouquets. Our centerpieces were unique and bright, large 3 ft tall bullet vases filled with green apples, and a wonderful arrangement of calla lillies on top! I will never forget how the room took my breath away the first time I peeked in, it's a memory my husband and I will have forever. Not only were the all the flowers fresh and beautiful, one of the most important parts is being punctual with planning a wedding. Our bouquets arrived early, our church was decorated perfectly, and our ballroom was complete hours before we arrived. With Sylvia's you get a local personal touch, a staff that is willing to help no matter what, and of course a day of bliss you'll never forget! Thank you Sylvia's for making our day so special! Sincerely, Michelle & Rick Piek
