The morning of your wedding is finally here! What better way to kick off the day than by spending the morning getting ready with your bridesmaids? The only thing that could make this situation better … is amazing snacks, and Hotel Arista has you covered.

Don’t worry, Hotel Arista has your fiance covered, too. Your other half and his best guys can enjoy a craft beer station while they get ready for their day to remember.

Time to CELEBRATE! … And Eat!
Now that you’re officially married (has a nice ring to it huh?! – pun definitely intended), it’s time to pop that champagne and dance the night away with your closest friends and family. Enjoy white glove service throughout your reception as well as full-service catering and for some special treatment for you and your spouse … your very own personal server.
Cocktail Hour and Dinner
While you and your new spouse are whisked away to take photos and enjoy your first moments of married life together, you can rest assured your guests will be entertained. Hotel Arista can offer wedding guests a premium open bar complete with signature cocktails.
You’ll also have your choice of hors d’oeuvres, like tandoori chicken skewers with coconut curry sauce or puff pastry crostinis stuffed with boursin cheese and apricot. Sound good? Just wait till you get a taste of the dinner options (hellloooo Maine lobster medallions). You can choose to enjoy a three-course dinner or opt for a buffet-style dinner where guests can help themselves to as much food as they would like.
Last, but CERTAINLY not least, is your custom wedding cake, which is included with all wedding packages. Not a traditional wedding cake type of bride? No worries! Hotel Arista has a wide selection of alternative mouth-watering desserts, including a donut cake, a cookie cake, a cheesecake or even a cake made entirely out of macaroons. Guests can satisfy their sweet tooth while enjoying a hot cup of coffee and tea.
Late Night Bites
Dancing the night away can take a lot out of you and your guests. And sometimes, that extra piece of cake just doesn’t do it. How about some tasty, late-night snacks instead? Hotel Arista will wheel in some tasty treats so you can continue the celebration late into the night. Choose from a variety of sliders, opt for a hot pretzel station, or give your guests a taste of Chicago with some pizza or a Chicago hot dog station.
Be Our Guest
Your guests will be just as taken care of as you and your better half. Hotel Arista offers 144 deluxe guest rooms and suites for a special guest rate. While enjoying their stay, guests can take advantage of the various hotel amenities, including valet parking, complimentary Wi-Fi (you know, to take advantage of that wedding hashtag you worked so hard to come up with), a fitness center, and of course, the Arista Spa & Salon services.
Want to really wow your guests when they arrive? Hotel Arista will help you deliver gift bags to each room, which is especially great for out-of-town guests who might need a quick snack after a long day of travel or a list of local hot-spots to check out before and after the wedding.
The Wedding Night
The wedding night is just as special as the wedding itself. Hotel Arista treats you and your spouse like a king and queen with a complimentary wedding night honeymoon suite complete with chocolate-covered strawberries and bubbly champagne. What a perfect way to end such a perfect day.
