Where are the nearest airports?
O'Hare, Midway, and Mitchell International Airports are all within a 1-2 hour drive from The Abbey Resort.
Is there a rehearsal and rehearsal dinner?
There will be a rehearsal for our immediate families and wedding party at The Abbey Resort on Friday, May 8th at 6:00 pm. Since we would like to spend time with all of our guests that have traveled near and far to celebrate with us, there will be no rehearsal dinner. We are planning to have a casual, no-host dinner around 7:00 pm and would love for any of our wedding guests to drop by and join us. The location is to be determined.
Where is the ceremony and reception?
All of the wedding festivities will be at The Abbey Resort. See the "Details" section above for more information.
Will food and alcohol be provided?
We’ll be hosting a premium open bar for the duration of cocktail hour through the end of the reception. We’ll be serving hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour, and a plated dinner, dessert, and late-night snacks during the reception. The exact menu can be found HERE
. If you choose to join us for dinner on Friday evening or for the after-party on Saturday night, please plan to pay your own way.
Where should I stay?
For your convenience, we highly recommend staying where all of the wedding festivities will be, The Abbey Resort. We’ve negotiated a discounted room rate for our wedding guests. Please see the "Details" section above for more information.
What should I wear?
The recommended dress code is semi-formal attire. For ladies, a cocktail dress would be appropriate. For men, a jacket and dress slacks would be preferred. Ultimately, we just want you to be comfortable so let us know if you have questions. The weather this time of year is unpredictable, and since we’ll be outside for the ceremony and cocktail hour, please make sure to bring a jacket or layers just in case.
Are kids invited?
Our preference is for all of our wedding festivities to be adults only. We certainly don’t want this to prevent you from attending, so if that is the case, please contact us.
How long is the reception? Is there an after-party?
The reception will begin at 7:00 pm and end at midnight. If you want to keep the party going, take a short walk with us after the reception to Chuck’s Lakeshore Inn
What are some fun things to do in the area?
We love the Lake Geneva area and hope you get a chance to explore it and see why! The possibilities are endless but here are a few suggestions
to get you started.
