THE OLD CHICAGO POST OFFICE

Old Post Office Sign in Chicago

The Old Chicago Post Office was originally built in 1921 but later had an expansion in 1932 to meet Chicago’s postal needs. During its heyday, the property was the largest post office in the world, distributing over 19 million pieces of mail every day.

Today, after an $800 million renovation, this property has over 2.5 million square feet of multi-use space, including ample room for events like weddings and receptions.

There is also a 3.5-acre urban rooftop oasis so you can also take in the beautiful views of Chicago’s skyline on your big day—and not to mention great wedding photos.
