Located in Jackson County, this romantic little town offers the usual in wedding locations and reception halls.  Many of the local restaurants and hotels offer low-cost wedding facilities for both students and non-students.

If you are a student at Southern Illinois University, you should contact the school administrator to see what provisions they have for wedding ceremonies and receptions.  Most universities have an on-campus chapel and other large event areas they can be used for either a wedding or reception.  If you aren't a student but you are on a student budget, may consider a civil ceremony at the Carbondale Courthouse.  You may also consider having your ceremony at one of the parks that surround the Jackson County area.  The Giant City State Park and Little Grand Canyon are just two of the local parks that may allow weddings or wedding ceremonies. Many golf courses also offer the clubhouse as a potential wedding facility.

As with many other parts of Illinois, is very common to have traditional religious ceremonies conducted in a local church.  The greater Carbondale area offers Catholic, Episcopal, and Baptist churches.  Many churches offer a location for both the wedding and reception.  If you decide to have both celebrations in the same location, you can simplify your wedding plan and use one of the churches preferred caterers or florists.  If you plan to have the ceremony at church and your reception at a second location, you may want to search the area nearest your preferred church.  By limiting the distance between your wedding ceremony and reception, you can reduce the chances of losing some of your guests in the transition.
