We are a small, family-owned business catering exclusively to upscale weddings, providing the newest fleet of vehicles and the best wedding package available.
Editor’s Note: for this Best Limos & Wedding Transportation in Chicago Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Dan, from Absolute Dreams Limousines.
Where have you been featured?
The Knot “Best Of Weddings” for 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 , 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019

We have over 800 5-Star reviews and are the only Limousine service in the Midwest (maybe anywhere) to win TheKnot.com’s Best of Weddings 10 years in a row. We were the first limousine service in Illinois to be entered into TheKnot’s Hall of Fame. The same goes for WeddingWire’s “Best Of” for 10 years in a row.
We are the in-house referral for dozens of Reception halls, casinos, and about 1/3 of our weddings actually come from Wedding Coordinators. All of them base their referrals on quality, not price. When they want it done right, they call us.
Over the years, several of our custom-made vehicles have made the covers of Limo Trade Magazines.
What do you love most about helping couples on their special day?
Even after personally doing weddings for 25 years, every wedding is still different. I still hear every at least every couple weeks how the limo was the best time of the day. The ability to relax and actually enjoy the wedding party before the reception.
Why do couples love working with you?
We are small enough to offer personal attention to every couple and personally guarantee their satisfaction. We truly believe that we are only as good as our last service. We offer the newest and most unique fleet of Trolleys and Limo-Party Buses, and the best Wedding Package available. We could easily double the size of our fleet, but choose to remain small enough to handle everything personally.
How long have you been in business?
We have been in business since 1983.
What 3 words best describe your company?
Elegant, Reliable, Unique.
What budget range do you cater to?
Medium to larger budgets.
What is your favorite vehicle in your fleet?
Our White Trolleys of course. Like the original White Wedding Trolleys in Chicagoland, we invented a new niche market that we love. They are built specifically for weddings, with built-in bars (stocked), deluxe interiors with seat cushions, cup holders, premium sound systems triple Air-conditioning systems.
Do you have an outrageous wedding story to share?
Nothing outrageous that I can talk about. But our reviews show many instances where we were able to bail out a Bride after her cheap limo didn’t show, or canceled at the last minute.
When searching for transportation for the day of our wedding, we had seen at least one review on every other company pages that stated at some times the bus didn’t show up. We immediately went with Absolute Dream Limos because they didn’t have any of those types of reviews. WE ARE SO HAPPY THAT WE WENT WITH THIS COMPANY!This company was incredible. Our bus showed up early (which was amazing because our timeline was pretty crunched), our driver was so friendly and made sure that everyone on the bus was happy! Our champagne toast was wonderful on the way to the church, we had an amazing time! Our driver was able to navigate around downtown, being able to avoid as much traffic (on a Saturday) as possible. Our experience with this company was nothing less than amazing!
We loved using Absolute Dream Limo!! I was introduced to their company at a bridal expo at Gaelic Park, and the owner took my MOH and I right outside to check out the trolley and I was sold! The white trolley was gorgeous and comfortable for our party of 25. They were on time, decorated, had a champagne toast, and was very flexible with where we traveled to/ what we brought on the trolley. Dan was such a nice person and did a great job collaborating with and keeping in contact with our photographer which was a relief that I didn’t need to check in on him or give detailed directions. I would recommend their services for any wedding and would use them again in the future! Thanks Absolute Dream Limo!
Absolute Dream Limousine REALLY made our day special. Our wedding party was a total of 12, and the guys and gals didn’t really know each other. But after our time together rocking out to cool tunes and awesome lights on the party bus, everyone was a lot more comfortable with each other. We had so much fun! Our wedding party did a lot of work to help my hubby and I put in preparation for this day, and we really wanted to make sure they enjoyed themselves, and after our time on the party bus, we were 100% sure they were having a blast! Shout out to our driver James! He was super nice, and really made the day all the more special! The owner of the company, Dan, is also very easy to work with. A few months after signing our contract, we realized that we needed to cut down our time by a half hour (from 5 hours to 4.5 hours), and they were perfectly fine with that, sent us an updated contract by email. Great communication, and very personable. We highly recommend Absolute Dream Limousine!
