Garden Grove Event Center is a one stop shop for all wedding and special events in Southern Illinois, with a main goal of helping you design and execute your perfect event, with little stress and many smiles. We keep it simple; we take your visions for your event, and we help you turn them into reality. Our goal is for you to create lasting memories within one of our three venues; let us handle the details so you can do just that. To help you manage the many daunting details, we offer delicious in-house catering, professional staff to attend to your guests needs, and wedding coordinating services to make sure your day runs smoothly. Our staff is comprised of thoughtful, friendly, and helpful people who understand the individual needs of your event; these are the people who will assist you in planning and executing your special day. 
Since opening our doors in 2012, we have watched over 600 couples walk down the aisle, and have helped plan countless special events. The biggest difference you'll find with us at Garden Grove, in addition to our passion for weddings and events, is that all 3 of our venues were designed with our clients in mind. We strive to bridge the gap that we find is present in the wedding industry. We offer full service wedding planning, with everything at our clients finger tips, so they can plan a wedding or an event with as little stress, and as much guidance, as possible. We can help you create not only a beautiful event, but one that is also unforgettable, all while helping you stay on track with your budget. 
It is our pleasure to host your timeless event, and to offer you first class service.
