FAQ

We understand selecting a wedding venue can be overwhelming. To help make your decision easier, we put together a list of Paramount Events frequently asked questions! If you have any additional questions, or want to request booking information for any Paramount Events Spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us at 630-723-2468. We look forward to hearing from you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! We have multiple spaces for all of your wedding day events including the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Depending on what best fits your needs, you can rent as many spaces as you want.

Standard weddings are allotted 6 hours for reception and an additional hour if your ceremony is on site. You are also allowed access to your venue 3 hours prior to your guests’ arrival. When you arrive at the start of your event, everything that Paramount Events provides will be set up, allowing you and your vendors time to prepare any additional items. Paramount Events will take care of room clean-up at the end of your event time. We are happy to remove anything you would like thrown away, but we kindly ask that you have your guests, decor, gifts, etc. removed by the end of your 6 hour reception time.

Yes! We would love the opportunity to show you the venues and discuss the details of your wedding. Click here to book a site visit. We typically schedule tours Monday through Friday, 10am-6pm; occasional weekend and evening appointments available, too.

When you book your wedding at Paramount Events, we include all of your event essentials for no extra charge. All wedding reservations include: tables, chairs, tablecloths (black or white), setup & takedown of dining tables and chairs, 5 hour standard open bar package, two centerpiece options, day-of event coordinator, security guard, seasonal coat check, wedding party suite, and champagne toast for head table.

There are two in-house centerpieces available at no additional charge. Please note that decorations that could damage any surface in the event spaces cannot be used.

Of course! You are allowed access to your venue 3 hours prior to your guests arriving. Should you feel you will need more than 3 hours to decorate, you have the option to purchase additional hours of decorating time. Additional hours may be purchased in 3-hour increments. When your load-in time begins, we will have all of your tables, chairs and linens set so the room will be ready for you and/or your vendors to decorate at that time.

We have two bar options:

  • 5 hours of a Meyer Ballroom Bar Package with champagne toast for head table, no wine on the tables during dinner and no cocktail service at the head table.
  • 4 hours of a Meyer Ballroom Bar Package with champagne toast for head table, in-house wine on the tables during dinner and personal cocktail service at the head table.

The Paramount Events spaces are set up to accommodate a DJ or band. We will work with you to coordinate a location for a DJ table, band, speakers and any other necessary equipment (a podium and one wireless microphone are included in room rental fee).

We ask that all items, including items that you brought in, are removed at the end of your reception. In certain cases, exceptions can be made, but written approval must be granted at least 7 days prior to your event with the Paramount Events Manager. Paramount Events is not responsible for any items left overnight or not collected at the end of your reception.

Wedding Blog
JULY 2020

Pamela and Andrew 5.25.18

The First Date

We went to PF Chang’s at Woodfield Mall.

The Favorite Qualities

Pamela: He makes me laugh and I know that I can count on him to always be there for our family. We balance each other out because I am very emotional and tend to make decision based on my feelings and he is definitely more logical. He is great with our 2 month old daughter and I know she will end up being a daddy’s girl! He also makes me yummy tacos every Tuesday. 🙂

Andrew: She is very goofy and I like that we can be silly together and laugh. She keeps me in check when I just want to play video games all day. She is kind-hearted and is always thinking about other people and how they feel. She is a great mother to our daughter.

The Moment

We couldn’t think of one moment in time. We just kind of knew when we first started living together and had to make adult decisions as a couple. Taking care of our home and our cat together. Figuring out our finances and general “adulting.”

The Venue

The Meyer Ballroom was only the second venue we visited. We knew at our visit that we loved it and wanted to get married there. We really wanted a venue that could be our ceremony and reception space. We loved the beautiful floors and windows in the ballroom and the atrium was the perfect place for our ceremony. We also thought the surrounding area was beautiful and would make for great pictures. The packages were exactly what we needed and fit our budget. We really liked the flexibility of the space and that we had a few different options for our ceremony. It was comforting to know that we would have a coordinator with us for the whole process and the day of. Kelsey, our coordinator, was amazing from the beginning as well. She saved the day so many times!

The Wedding Party Proposal

Pamela: I did! I made a personalized keepsake box for each of my bridesmaids with a donut inside. The card said, “I Donut Want to Say I Do Without You!”

The Date Nights

We’re pretty boring when it comes to date nights! We love going out to dinner but since our daughter was born, our date nights are a little different. We love getting take out and binging a show on Netflix.

The Unique Touches

Pamela: I am an elementary school teacher so I had my students answer questions about love and marriage and they were part of the centerpieces on the tables. I also invited my class to come to the ceremony and a few of them were able to make it

Andrew: I am a big gamer so we had a video game area for those who didn’t want to dance.

We also had a donut wall that Pamela’s brothers made specifically for us.

The Vendors

Caterer

Enticing Cuisine: They offered lots of yummy options (including a vegan option!) and were well priced.

DJ and Photobooth

Music By Design: Andrew is actually a wedding DJ on the weekends and works for Music By Design. We knew they would do amazing work and help make our wedding one to remember.

Photography

BJ Aguado Photography: We loved BJ’s photos from the beginning! He did our engagement photos and will be doing a family shoot with our daughter soon. He was super flexible and got all the shots we wanted!

Flowers and Decor

Style & Grace Events: Merna was so easy to work with! She gave us exactly what we wanted and stayed within our price range! She also did the flowers for my baby shower!

Make Up

Dose of Lolade: She does amazing work! She made us all look beautiful while still looking natural!

Hair

Refuge Salon and Barbershop: Loved her flexibility and willingness to try different things until I found something that was totally me!

Wedding Dress

Simply Luxe Bridal

Tuxes

Black Tie Formalwear

Bridesmaids Dresses

Here Comes the Bride

Cake

Jenni-Baby Bakes: She made our engagement party cake and it was delish! She listened to what I wanted and made a beautiful cake for us!

Dessert

The Donut Drop: This is a mom and pop donut shop in Schaumburg. We used to get their donuts when we lived there.
