Today the single day passes went on sale and sold out for Chicago’s Lollapalooza music festival. Within an hour Lollapalooza tickets were sold out for the three day music festival held annually in Grand Park the first weekend in August. Chicago wedding planners and brides must take note as August is a very popular Chicago wedding month and events like Lollapalooza present a handfull of concerns. That said, Big City Bride loves music and embraces any challenge that Lollapalooza brings to a Chicago wedding! With ten years of experience in Chicago weddings we know what to expect and how to avoid the traffic and potential mahem of every weekend. 

Often Chicago brides call when they realize their wedding date falls on a busy day in Chicago so that Big City Bride can take on the stress of day of coordination. There are two main worries that we tackle: hotel rooms and transportation. With such a tourist attraction coming to the city, hotel rooms go quickly (the tickets went faster than a Catholic wedding ceremony!) Big City Bride can help reach out to every contact we have in the hospitality industry to find the remaining room blocks available and reserve enough rooms for your out of town wedding guests in Chicago. 

Wedding day transportation is another area where a Chicago wedding planner can step in to save the day. With an understanding of closures and traffic estimations, Big City Bride knows how to schedule your wedding day around any potential problem. We factor in the right amount of time, choosing the right hotels and venues to avoid any problem area, and contracting only the most loyal and reliable vendors for the day.

Do not be afraid! You can embrace the fun of Lollapalooza Chicago and celebrate your wedding on the first weekend in August or any other day with a large convention or event (with the right help.) Your wedding guests may love the opportunity to make a weekend of your wedding and spend either Friday or Sunday in Grant Park. It’s a great schedule of events!
