I'm a April 2012 Chicago bride too! Sort of... I'm actually in the western suburbs - Downers Grove. We're getting married April 3 in St. Thomas.

 

Are any of you guys planning an AHR yet? We're on the hunt for a venue. Brookfield Zoo ended up being out of our price range, but I'm meeting with the manager of events at Cantigny (in Wheaton) on Wednesday to discuss a Friday night event a few weeks after we get back. I'm calling it an anniversary party to control costs. It's amazing how prices double when you drop the W-word.

Congratulations! We have not even begun to discuss AHR. A Friday night event sounds nice, hopefully the weather will have broken by then. If we decide to do an AHR, it will only be for my FI family because all of my family lives in Texas and my friends are all across the country. Good luck and happy planning! Keep us up to date as your plans progress.

Thanks! Yup, that's why we're looking for an indoor venue!! LOL Chicago in April - who knows how it will be! the room has a terrace included that we can use if it's nice out. I figure an evening in April will probably be too cool, but the smokers can go out there if they need :-)

 

I really want to include the AHR info on our invites, that's why we're planning so early. Plus if we want an indoor venue, we need to book sooner rather than later. I still am on the hunt for a funky restaurant that will let us rent a room for appetizers and dessert, but no luck so far.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
