Collective Resource is Wedtoberfest’s composting sponsor! This women-owned company has been hauling food scraps, reducing landfill waste, and educating the public since 2010. They continually strive to help each person or business meet their sustainability goals. From five gallon pails in residential homes to full-sized cans in restaurant kitchens, these ladies will orchestrate any size pick up, from anywhere in the Chicago Land area. We love this Green Wedding Alliance approved team member and are thrilled they are part of our event as well!
The Chicago Ale Fest is a celebration of American Craft Beer in the heart of Chicago. This winter fest will feature more then 150 American Craft Beers, food trucks and a DJ spinning some tunes. We will be there and hope to see you!
Naturally Yours Events, the co-event planning sponsor (along with Indie Wed), wrangled all of the details and logistics for Wedtoberfest. From pre-event communication to loud-out supervising, they really oversee all that goes into executing an event. Although planning weddings is what Naturally Yours Events is largely known for, they love planning and coordinating other events too (especially ones where the focus is BEER!).

We were lucky enough to not only have FIG Catering as our sponsor this year, but their sister company FIG Drinks as well! FIG Drinks supplies all of the necessities you need in terms of booze at a gathering: liquor, cocktail fix ins, ice, and bartenders. They’re the ones you should hire if delicious cocktails are a priority at your event. Read more about what’s happening at FIG Drinks below!
Bottles & Cans– one of our favorite local specialty liquor stores- not only sells tasty booze to individual customers, but also supplies in bulk to weddings and events! We were grateful to have them as a sponsor this year, providing wine to the non-beer drinkers at Wedtoberfest. We spoke to Carly, Owner of Bottles & Cans, about what’s been new at the shop:
You can’t throw a good party without amazing food. FIG Catering not only has that, but also has amazing service staff. We were fortunate enough to have FIG Catering onboard as a Wedtoberfest 2017 sponsor, and it wouldn’t have been as delicious without them. Read the Q&A below to see what’s going on with FIG!
There’s nothing like working with really amazing photographers – they tend to encapsulate events and emotions in their truest forms. We were fortunate enough to have Ed & Aileen Photography sponsor this year’s Wedtoberfest. Learn a little more about this awesome duo below!
Wedtoberfest would not have looked as cool without the seating areas (both upstairs and downstairs) provided by Relics Vintage Rentals. We’d like to take a moment to thank Relics for being one of our awesome decor sponsors this year!
