  • I don't even know where to begin with The Standard. I love this venue in so many ways. To start, the venue itself is absolutely stunning. When my fiance and I went on our initial tour, I knew we'd found the place. Now given that it was the first place we looked at, my fiance insisted we give a few other places a chance, so I did. I looked into at least 7 other venues but ultimately, none of the compared. The style was perfect for me/what I wanted for my day. Modern, glamorous, and a bit industrial. And the fact that there's a rooftop adds a whole other level (pun intended) of beauty and uniqueness. I also loved that the ceremony and reception can be in the same place AND the bridal party can get ready at the venue with hair and make up just downstairs (if you choose to use Arch Apothecary's services). So convenient and eases the stress (and cost) of travel expenses (i.e. to salons or to and from hotel). The staff at The Standard were all so knowledgable and friendly, making it ... Read more

  • I fell in love with The Standard the moment I saw it. All the staff that we worked with & met throughout the process were so kind, personable & accommodating. We sadly could not go through with my dream wedding there (thank you Covid), but even when plans changed everyone was understanding and continued to offer their assistance. I would 10/10 recommend this venue to anybody wanting to plan any sort of event here!

  • The Standard is such a BEAUTIFUL venue with an industrial vibe mixed with elegance. My husband and I moved to CA 7 months before our wedding, but it was still a seamless process with planning as they were very helpful and attentive. Sara was very quick when replying to emails, and was always more than happy to answer ALL of my questions. Unfortunately, we were forced to cancel our wedding due to COVID-19. The Standard was going to gladly allow us to simply change our wedding date, but we had personal reasons why we chose not to (nothing to due with the venue). They gave us our full refund back and wished us well. My husband and I were able to get married at the Court House on our date, but would love to have The Standard host our reception/celebration if we choose to have one in the future.

  • My husband and I can't get over how perfect The Standard was for our December wedding! The venue is absolutely beautiful and full of gorgeous details that really make it one of a kind. It was the perfect location to have both a ceremony and reception, and the transition between the two events was seamless. Johnna and Sara were so helpful with the planning process, especially when it got down to crunch time. The planning website they use is very easy to navigate and all of our other vendors had access to it so they knew our seating chart, floor layout, timeline, etc. Johnna went above and beyond to make the rehearsal and the wedding an absolute breeze. My husband and I, along with our families, were able to fully enjoy the whole day because the staff at The Standard took care of everything. Abreo caters the events at The Standard, and you won’t be disappointed. Paul and his staff were great to work with, and they even made our dream of a homemade ice cream sundae bar come true! The...

  • Is this a beautiful venue? Yes. But is its beauty enough to cover over the greedy and corrupt management? Absolutely not. Your wedding day should be as stress free as possible, if you book with the Standard and unexpected circumstances happen (i.e. a pandemic) you are in for one of the most stressful experiences of your life. This is what I had to watch as my family members had to cancel their wedding day due to COVID-19, fight for weeks to get a refund from the Standard ( who legally owed them a full refund based on their own contracts!) and get threatened with a lawsuit. All while being lied to continuously. This is not how a business should act, especially when you are in the business of weddings. Save yourself the trouble and put your special day in the hands of capable and professional business people.

  • First off, I support local businesses as I myself work at one. But I can’t support the conduct of this company and how they treated my friends who had to cancel their upcoming nuptials due to COVID-19. Because of the widespread pandemic they had to make the hard choice of cancelling. They didn’t expect issues with a refund because, well, it was no fault of their own and to go ahead with a wedding that would fit The Standards maximum capacity would be against the current law. They requested their money back. Any sane person wouldn’t pay for a service they never had. Initially they said sure,”...checks in the mail.” Nope. Another call later,”...we’ve never had to issue a refund via cc before.” I’m sure there’s some tutorial out there, you’d manage. To their surprise The Standard then threatened legal action against them. Hmm, say again? Legal action? Yes, let’s make an already gut wrenching decision worse. Fortunately The Standard had a lawyer that put themsel... Read more

  • My fiancée and I were all set to have a great wedding at the Standard, then COVID-19 hit. Our wedding was suddenly in jeopardy, we were going to have to cancel what was supposed to be one of the most special days of our lives, it was devastating, but somehow the Standard staff and management managed to make our grave situation even worse. We had no choice but to cancel our wedding due to government gathering restrictions, so we requested a full refund of $5,000 back from the Standard, if we couldn’t use the money to celebrate our marriage with our loved ones then at least it could help us get our new life started. However, the Standard refused, claiming that they ‘are not in a position to issue a refund’, in other words they are greedy leeches trying to suck money from newlyweds. Thankfully my fiancée and I went back to the contract we signed with the Standard where it clearly states that the client is due a FULL REFUND in the case of cancellations due to orders by government...

  • I went to check out the venue and learn about the packages. The space is brand new, contemporary rustic elgance with gorgeous exposed brick. The venue has amazing features especially the rooftop and gorgeous chandeliers. The catering company Abreo is amazing and I have always enjoyed their food. I love the bridal suite and mancave they offer. For me, thd rental for the space is very high(9,500) and they dont offer military discounts. They also do not include linens among some others as well which has a lot of added expenses. Parking is also limited but not terrible. I like the orginality of it. It is gorgeous, but some things i wish they would include for the very high rental fee.

  • The Standard is an amazing venue. Both of our families still live around the Rockford area so I decided to check out this new venue in the heart of downtown. I live in the Chicago suburbs and did not picture myself getting married in Rockford but when we toured the venue we feel in love. It is modern and unique - which was exactly what I was looking for. The staff was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. The building has a floral shop and hair salon connected. This worked great the day of getting ready and giving feedback to the florist. Abreo is the caterer associated with the venue and I had so many guests compliment the food. I know the venue is the biggest expense for most brides - The rental fee was very similar to places I quoted in the Chicago suburbs which surprised me but after experiencing their service it is worth it. They really have the prefect wedding day down to a science and I would recommend anyone looking for an all in one location for your ... Read more

  • The Standard is an absolutely incredible venue. We got married this past August and were happy with our experience. Some highlights in my opinion were: -The space is so beautiful, you do not need a ton of extra decorations/flowers/etc. It really speaks for itself. -Abreo's food was AMAZING. Our guests are still talking about how delicious everything was. The chicken was a huge hit, as well as the vanilla donut holes. Abreo is the caterer you have to go with if you book this venue. -It was nice and convenient to get hair and makeup done at Arch, then hang out in Bridal Suite all day. -Haley Foster Photography was incredible and captured so many amazing pictures from our day. Some cons: -If you don't live near Rockford, just remember to plan for the amount of trips you'll have to make out to Rockford for meetings, tastings, etc. -Now for our biggest bit of negative feedback, which was related to our experience with the coordinator, Johnna. The Standard offers tiered packages... Read more
