    Hey Girls. I grew up on the south side of Chicago near Midway, but am currently living in the western suburbs.  Any 2011 brides are interested in a get together?

    Like many have said, I am the first of any of our friends or family to do a destination wedding and would love to meet with some peeps that know what the heck I'm talking about! LOL

I'm from the south suburbs and totally up for meeting with the more seasoned planners if I'm welcome. Otherwise, have a fun get together!

      I wish I would have named the thread differently when I started it. Little did I know at the time that we'd end up having to push back our date and I'm now a 2011 bride too, lol. I say all Chicago area brides are welcome no matter what the date :)


      I'm all in for the dates in Oct if you are still going to be here Brandy?? Maybe that Sun evening on the 3rd?

          Fellow Chi Brides hi! 


          There is only one of us who are in Chicago, the bride, but the groom is finishing up a graduate study abroad in Argentina until January.  Thank God for Skype and Magic Jack, when he can get a connection.  Just spent a few summer months down there what a city, Buenos Aires.  I am at the parents in the Barrington/Iverness area while I finish up my internship.  We went for a destination wedding because he has divorced parents and remarriages, step family, it would get messy on who is paying for or doing what.  I have been to the holidays over the four yrs, I do not want that for my wedding. 


          Actually if a fellow Chicago area bride is looking for a truly great destination wedding planner, than email me because I found a winner who is in the Northwest Suburbs and knows so much.  Wow!  I thought my head would explode.  I could not get the hotel to email me back, thought they wanted the business.  I didn’t have time for all this and still do my internship.  She came in, we setup a Skype so Kurt could talk. 


          We still have not made the choice be we have it narrowed down to the two Now resorts in the south Cancun area.  I am still looking for any input from brides here.  Tried The Knot but nothing is going on there.  I saw this place was suggested.  Welcome the input if someone has had a wedding there.

            I am a Chicago-area bride, from the western suburbs. Getting married in two months, at Dreams Tulum on the Riviera Maya! I am soooo excited! Just had my shower and bachelorette party this past weekend, and it was one of the best days ever! (minus the hangover the following day).
