Unique strategy: Break out of the norm and dare to hold your Oak Brook wedding outside. With the right tent rental and décor, you’d be amazed by what a cozy vibe you can create using a heated tent in our patio area. Wood rounds, bark and hay bales are a nice way to warm up a tent’s décor.

Provide Mesmerizing Views

Your guests will be captivated by the beautiful grounds and serene setting of the Oak Brook Bath and Tennis Club. Our floor-to-ceiling windows with views of a tranquil pond are about as relaxing as you can get. In the warmer months, when the fountain is on-it runs 24 hours a day, where guests can enjoy this site from the main Oak Brook room.

The flowers and landscaping seen through the floor-to-ceiling windows of our secluded clubhouse bring a seasonal charm to your wedding’s atmosphere. Your choice of delicious foods can reinforce this. Design a fresh menu filled with seasonal fruits and vegetables that are bursting with brilliant flavor and artistically presented to match your elegant décor.

Bring the Greenery Inside!

From wreaths to centerpieces, greenery continues to be a key wedding trend. And you can take this décor a step further by bringing potted plants and trees inside Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club. This is a refreshing way to make a statement about your appreciation of the outdoors and provides endless opportunities for personalization.

Unique strategy: Be proud of your bold decision to not only integrate but also feature the outdoors inside your wedding space by decorating indoor trees with twinkling lights!

Our preferred vendors can help you use lighting to cultivate your dream wedding atmosphere. Guests can dance the night away on our stunning patio under string lights or under the gorgeous oil rubbed bronzed chandeliers in our remodeled main Oak Brook room. In either space, you can dazzle and delight guests with your personal style that draws the outdoors inside.

Unique strategy: Work with a lighting rental company to use gobo lighting to project silhouettes of leaves and stars on the walls inside Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club. You might even ask them to throw in a monogram!
