Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/02/2014 -- According to Cost of Wedding, the average couple spends $11,230 on a wedding venue, catering and rentals. One must wonder, however, what type of venue one used as a person's wedding is one of the most important days of a person's life and the wrong choice could be disastrous, no matter the cost. "European Crystal wants to show consumers why the choice of venue remains one of the most important decisions one must make when planning a wedding.

Before and after the event, food, drinks, and music are provided.

The Grand Ballroom offers 19 foot ceilings, rich and neutral colors and grand chandeliers while the Parlor Room provides a more intimate setting, featuring two fireplaces at each end and mahogany wood floors, among other attractions.
