Any Chicago area 2010 brides out there?

Recommended Posts

I saw there was a Chicago get together not too long ago but I think most of those brides were 2009 brides and are WAY ahead of me in planning, or some may have even been married by now. Of course they could share valuable experience as well :) but I thought it might be fun to find other 2010 brides who are close to same stages of planning and maybe get together?

 

No one I know personally has ever done a destination wedding (I've heard a lot of second hand stories, but no first hand experience by any of my friends) and sometimes I feel like they just don't get what I'm talking about.

 

I'm in the NW suburbs, but open to traveling into the city. Brides from southern WI or even NW Indiana wouldn't be that far either. Anyone local brides interested?

I'm not from Chicago....Omaha actually, but I'm up your way every few weeks visiting with my cousin and spending FI's money. If you're up for it we could definitely get together for cocktails or something!

You're definitely lucky to be able to go out of town so often - and Chicago is definitely a great place to go! SO much to do in the city! Where do you stay when you come out here (city/burbs)? I'm in the burbs now but lived in the city during college and had way too much fun. Of course, that was awhile ago, lol. Let me know the next time you're coming in and maybe we can get together.

 

Hopefully other Chicago area brides will find this thread and we can get a small group together. I know I've seen a few others from the Chicago area floating around on here.

 

So where are you with your planning? I feel like I'm behind - I have so many ideas, but just haven't done anything. I spend way too much time on here researching - there's just SO many great ideas! I know I just need to get it together and start doing/buying stuff already.

Haha...I usually live at the Hyatts while I'm in Chicago. Lucky enough to still have family who works for the company, so we take advantage of the free hotel stays. Im usually at the Regency on Wacker, sometimes down at theMCormick center. I'll be in town next sometime the week of the 16th. Might be the week after, because I'm celebrating my b-day all over the place this year. Don't know if I'll be in town all that week or if we'll be at my aunts in Moline. Either way, I'd definitely be up for the commute if you wanted to get together.

Ahh...sorry....my computer decide it wanted to post even though I wasn't done typing yet. As for planning....heh. I like to tell myself I'm on the ball, but I know this is the farthest thing from the truth. I have my dress,AHR is booked, trip is paid off, and our date is booked. Other than that it is pure CHAOS.. Still don't have FI's suit, our wedding party is a mess, and I haven't really started thinking about what to put in OOT bags or sent out invitations or save the dates. FML. I'll get things together sooner or later.

HI ladies!! I am another Chicago bride. I actually live out in the western suburbs. I totally feel you on the fact that other brides just don't understand about planning a destination wedding. Like you can't just go meet with your WC to go over details once a month!! I am also down in anyone wants to get together for drinks, I work downtown but could also drive downtown on the weekends.

 

I totally feel behind in everything but I know I am about right on target once I get passed all my anxiety! I have found my dress, booked our resort, booked our trip, picked out our attendants, and am currently working on invitations. But still so much left to do!

Hi Brides! I am also a Chicago bride and we are planning a wedding in Riviera Maya for August 2010. I grew up in the northwest suburbs and now I am a little more west due to work. I am already stressing over planning this wedding! I am leaving this Wednesday for Mexico to tour resorts...that I am VERY excited about! My parents are travel agents, so that helps out GREATLY in planning the wedding! You all have a lot more planned than I do...I'm hoping once we get back from Mexico we can finally start planning! I'm glad this Chicago thread was started...what a great idea! :)

Yay!! There's actually a few of us! We should all figure out a date and time that's going to work for us and go out for cocktails! I'm available any time after the 22nd of this month. What works for everyone?

I'm kind of flexible until the end of the month, but don't know my schedule after that. My son plays travel ice hockey and tryouts are the first week of Sept, so I kind of have to wait and see what team he makes and get his schedule, since I will need to play chauffeur, lol. If we meet in the city, it would probably need to be a weekend for me, because driving downtown on a weeknight is just craziness for me. I'm in Hoffman Estates - where is everyone else? That will help us figure a kind of central place where hopefully none of us has to drive too far.

We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white.
