European Crystal Banquet Hall & Conference Center
Your wedding day is likely to be one of the most memorable days of your life. Thus it’s crucial to choose the right reception hall. That’s why if you’re looking for a glamorous banquet complex in Chicago to host your ceremony or reception, consider taking a tour of European Crystal.
One of the reasons why our banquet hall is rated so highly is because it offers a luxurious and romantic atmosphere. It’s one of the highest rated venues in the Chicagoland area. Best of all, our location caters to guests from the city or the suburbs.
The Perfect Wedding Venue in the Northwest Suburbs
From the minute your guests step into the opulent Italian Renaissance inspired lobby, they’ll be wowed by the attention to detail and impeccable standard of service.
On your special day, you’ll also be given the use of personal bridal attendants, who will attend to any last minute tasks that may arise. Depending on how many guests you have on your guest list, you may be interested in booking the Grand Ballroom; it offers 6,500 square feet of open space and can comfortably host up to 550 guests. We also have our Parlor Room, which is slightly smaller and offers 4,070 square feet of open space.
The Parlor Room offers a more intimate space and is suitable for smaller gatherings. It provides a warm, welcoming environment and boasts two fireplaces, 11-foot marble columns, and mahogany wood floors.
One of the advantages of booking the Grand Ballroom is that it offers a neutral color scheme, so no matter what color scheme you choose, the Grand Ballroom’s color scheme of cream and gold accents will compliment it. As an example, if you’ve chosen a pale blue color scheme, our wedding planners can organize white and blue floral centerpieces and blue silk chair coverings. If you’re interested in holding both your ceremony and your reception at the venue, you can opt to it in the Grand Ballroom. If you choose this option, directly after your reception, you can host a cocktail hour in the Parlor Room while the team transforms the Grand Ballroom into the perfect venue for your wedding reception.
We also provide a range of catering options, so there’s no need to hire a separate catering company. Whether you’d prefer to opt for a set dinner menu, a light lunch menu, or a South Asian-inspired dinner menu, our world-class chefs will be able to accommodate your requests. No matter which you choose, you’ll receive the service of a team of experienced servers and butlers who will serve your guests Hors oeuvres, throughout the course of the night. Examples of some of the gourmet dishes on offer include Fillet Mignon served with shrimp scampi, Japanese beef tenderloin skewers and pan seared chicken.
Keep in mind; our bakers specialize in creating spectacular dessert tables which are stacked with a variety of mouth-watering desserts including chocolate truffles, cheesecakes, crème brûlée and fresh fruit dipped in milk, white, and dark chocolate. We can also organize for chocolate fountains to be placed next to your dessert buffet. If you require a customized wedding cake, the pastry chefs can also turn your concept of your dream cake into a reality.

From the minute your limousine chauffeur knocks on your door on the morning of your wedding, to the moment your last guest leaves your reception, your planner will ensure that everything is exactly how you have always dreamed it would be.
