Anderson Gardens
Rockford, IL
Caterers

Anderson Gardens is absolutely gorgeous. Their wedding planner, Julie, is very helpful! My wedding is 6 months away. So far, I give Anderson the highest recommendation.

Update:
Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford, Illinois is absolutely gorgeous! You can hardly believe a place so beautiful exists in the Midwest. I wanted my guests to be surrounded by beauty and that is exactly what I got!

The down side is that their service is not as amazing. I live on the East Coast now and have been to a lot of weddings out here. When you think East Coast, you think rude people. But these East Coast wedding venues know how to treat you! They fall over themselves trying to get you whatever you need. This is not the case at Anderson Gardens. They tell you what you can and mostly what you can't do. The place is gorgeous and the staff is nice, which made up for their "my way or the highway" attitude a little bit.

I would still book this venue because of how absolutely gorgeous it is. I just hope that someday soon they realize they are in the Service Industry.

Rehearsal Lunch/Dinner

Brio is awesome! The food is amazing! I highly recommend this place for your rehearsal dinner. The private room in the lower level was perfect for us. It's cute and we had privacy.
