Parking, Valet and Getting Around in Chicago

Parking, Valet and Getting Around in Chicago

Parking and Valet in Chicago

Parking in the Chicago area is difficult and stressful to find compared to other cities around the area.  Metered parking will have you coming back all night and you risk getting a ticket.  If you park in the wrong spot, you may even risk being towed.

Valet in Chicago is an issue many times as well.  If you need to park, we recommend reserving your spot.  You get discounted rates and your spot will be ready when you arrive.  No driving around for hours!

Park Whiz

Guaranteed parking with better rates!  We have found this to be the best pre-pay parking around.

Lyft

VIP recommends using our Lyft code if you do not have transportation throughout the night.  Lyft codes will give you $20.00 off your first ride if you are a new customer, or up to $50.00 in Lyft credits.  If you already are a customer, give the code to someone in your group.  If you use Uber in the downtown are (from hotel to venue) you likely would get your ride free.  Share it among the friends in your group, and you may ride free all night.  Lyft cars can hold up to 6 passengers.  Drivers are always nearby so you will be picked up in minutes!

Moms At a Bachelorette Party?

Moms At a Bachelorette Party?

Bachelorette parties have grown in popularity over the last decades.  Gone are the days of strippers and wild nights.  Bachelorette parties can be mild, wild, unique, trendy, or even a simple dinner.  Bachelorette parties are about getting together, sharing past stories, and creating new memories.  Let’s face it, moms had a big role in the past, so perhaps the bride to be would like her included… or maybe not.

  • The decision to invite the mom(s) can make or break the event so play it safe and follow these tips:
  • It’s the bride-to-be’s night out. It’s her celebration. Consider how she would feel either way.
  • If the bride to be and her mother are inseparable and extremely close, the bride may be hurt if you did not invite her.
  • If the bachelorette party involves things that will make the mom uncomfortable, it is probably not a good idea.
  • If you decide to invite the mother of the bride, you should also include the groom’s mother.   Not inviting her could hurt some or all of the family, not to mention cause drama.
  • If the bride-to-be has mentioned she does not want her there, enough said.  Don’t do it.

 

The decision is definitely not easy, however, following the above tips may help.  If you’re stuck, compromise; include the mom(s) in part of the festivities.  If the bachelorette party is starting off at a restaurant for dinner, have the mom(s) join for dinner.  Not only will you make the mom(s) happy, but the bride to be will feel you really tried to make her night perfect!  After dinner, ensure the mom(s) are taken back home safely and continue on with the bachelorette party.

In 2010, out of 642 bachelorette parties planned by VIP Bachelorette, forty-one (that we know of) had mom(s) at the bachelorette party.  Of those forty-one, eight of those were actually planned by the mom.  Our party hosts have even mentioned that they have seen the moms dancing on the bars!  Hey, moms are fun too!

 

It’s My Party and I’ll Cry….

It’s My Party and I’ll Cry….

Let VIP help you plan the perfect party

We all know the song by Leslie Gore, “It’s My Party,” and VIP wants to help you make your party as cry free as possible.  Let VIP help you plan the perfect party with barely any bumps in the road.  Planning a bachelorette party is stressful and the person who is planning it can become overwhelmed.  We have seen everyone from the Maid of Honor to the Mother of the Bride taking on this chaotic yet exciting task.  We have also seen some major meltdowns during the party.  We are sure you have heard the stories; the bouncer has an attitude, the limo driver missed a turn, it took five minutes for the girl at the counter to find a name on a list.  While this may seem silly to most, the person who planned the celebration may find these small gaffes to be a disaster!

Follow these tips and give the bride-to-be a night to remember!

  • Don’t sweat the small stuff!  There are always going to be a few bumps in the road.  Just remember there is a VIP party host provided for you!  Let them worry and you have fun with the bride-to-be.
  • What the bride doesn’t know won’t hurt her.  Make the night as worry free for the bride as possible and keep things under the table.  It will all work out and VIP is here to make sure it does.
  • Stirring up drama usually does not help.  There are usually conflicting personalities within parties.  Remember that the night is not about anyone except your best friend who wants one last night to have fun.  The time to start drama can wait for another day.

One last thought: Have fun!  This will be a night to remember, might as well make it a positive one!
