Most churches have getting ready rooms for brides, if you decide to go that route!

I don’t have any experience looking in Chicago but I found that most venues (lofts, distilleries, etc) who did lots of weddings did have a bridal suite.  The only thing you may have to check on is when you would be allowed in.  Some times you might have to start getting ready at 9 or 10am but wouldn’t be allowed into the venue until 2pm.  You just have to check the rules on an individual basis.

@RosieRo:  I am not getting married at a loft space, but I do know that Loft on Lake does have a small dressing room area. I think that Prarie Productions is just an open venue with no area for getting ready.
I am getting married at a restaurant in the North side and I will likely be staying at a hotel and getting ready there.

The only “loft” type space that I found with a bridal suite was Room 1520. Prarie Production has a small “holding” space, but it’s definitely not a room you could get ready in with your bridesmaids. The other venues I checked out besides those two were Gallery 1028, City View Loft, and Floating World Art Gallery.

 

If you want a loft space, I think your best bet is to get ready at a hotel. As PP mentioned, you might want to check out Loft on Lake – I can’t help you there since I didn’t see it. There is also Bridgeport Art Center.

I didnt end up getting married at Room 1520, but i spent the next months lusting after their bridal suite – it was super pretty.  I did end up getting married at Prairie Productions and the room is DEFINITELY not a bridal suite – more like a glorified closet.

Throwing this out there because the definition of “near suburb” varies to all, but Danada House in Wheaton also had a beautiful bridal suite.
