YOUR FUN...YOUR WAY
And we mean it!
If your idea of wedding morning fun starts with early sunrise yoga in Millennium Park to get yourself centered for the big day - great, we'll see you there with smiles & mats to greet your wedding party.
Or maybe a better idea is breakfast at Lou Mitchel's for skillets & donuts holes with your groomsmen - awesome we'll wait in line for you!
Your wedding weekend will be planned to make it an unforgettable experience for you & your guests; whether it’s a micro wedding for the 50 people you love the most to a full-on Chicago blow out for 400 of your nearest and dearest or somewhere in between, we’ll help bring your vision to life.

"In a word - OUTSTANDING!
HBIC Weddings provided first-hand support, and her knowledge of venues and vendors simplified the selection process. Her experience was truly valuable throughout the planning process. Diane and her team provided the “extra touch” to make our event go smoothly and allowed us to enjoy everything without worries.”
