Naper Settlement’s annual Wedding Showcase opens its doors to newly engaged couples looking to meet a variety of wedding professionals to help make their special day one to remember. The showcase will feature over 50 vendors from all over the Chicago area on Saturday, January 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. located at 523 S. Webster St., Naperville. The showcase will take place in the Pre-Emption House and Century Memorial Chapel, a historic, nondenominational chapel, which is the highlight of the showcase. Admission is free. For more information, call (630) 420-6010 or visit www.napersettlement.org/weddingshowcase.

“Brides and grooms who attend the Wedding Showcase will have an opportunity to have personal one-on-one consultations with wedding-related vendors that include musicians, wedding planners, florists, plus so much more,” said Grace Michalak, Naper Settlement’s Guest Services Representative.

Chicago-based event planners, A Perfect Pair, will be one of the many vendors at the Wedding Showcase to meet with guests, explain their business and share their love for planning weddings and parties. Business owners, Lauren Jackson and Emilee Lales, who started out as co-workers then quickly became best friends, began A Perfect Pair in late 2012. A Perfect Pair is a Chicago-based event boutique that finds joy in helping their clients narrow their choices and plan the wedding they always dreamed about.

“Event planners help make your wedding day as smooth and stress-free as possible,” said Lales.

Lales says they love Naper Settlement’s Wedding Showcase, because many of the featured vendors are small businesses, and it’s the perfect way for any couple to meet many vendors at once and get a good sense of what’s offered locally.

From make-up artists to bakers, brides and grooms will be able to have personal consultations with each vendor to figure out what they’ll need to plan their ideal wedding. Some participating vendors have also donated items as raffle prizes and guests who receive a stamp at participating booths will be eligible to enter.

Attendees will also be able to step inside Naper Settlement’s Century Memorial Chapel. Built in 1864, the charm and elegance of the Chapel comes through in its original stained glass windows and pews. With seating for up to 175 guests, the Century Memorial Chapel is the perfect setting for a wedding ceremony.
