Hi ladies!! Another non-Chicago bride here. wink.gif 

 

I'm Ashley and I'm getting married May 5, 2012 (cinco de mayo!! friday.gif) on a Carnival cruise.  We'll be getting married while in port in Tampa, then we'll be headed to Cozumel and Grand Cayman.   Right now we're getting ready to send out STD's and hopefully will get started on some other projects right after the holidays.

Wow I really like this esp since I never found any Iowa brides really when I was planning my wedding back in 2008! So my name is Betsy and we were married at the Moon Palace in Cancun, MX - it was amazing. I can't wait to go back!

Hi Shanna - have you picked a palace resort yet? We were married at Moon Palace and LOVED it - it was so amazing - let me know if you have any questions - it was a long time ago but I had so much fun.

Hi Betsy!!!

 

Yes we did! My fiance, myself, family and friends are all staying at Moon Palace and we are having the wedding at Sun Palace.  I wanted the pretty blue water for my wedding as I am getting married on the beach.  I'd love to hear about your wedding and see pictures! :)

Hello all! So so happy to have found this group! I would be interested in any and all advice and wouldn't be opposed to maybe a Chicagoland meetup down the road... (:

 

My name is Sara, I'm a California girl, but moved to Chicago in 2009 after college to be near my boyfriend..... and now he's my fiance! I first lived in the city (Wrigleyville), then moved to Downers Grove (where he's from.. HELLO to all the DG girls!) and now I live in Schaumburg. Most of my family is in California, and ALL my friends are on the west coast. Mike's family is all in Chicagoland, so instead of picking a place here in the US and having the wedding be one-sided, we decided to throw everyone off and get married in Playa! HAHA

 

We are getting married in 3/13. Haven't solidified a date yet, we're working with a wedding planner to finalize things. I'm in the very early stages of wedding planning... If I start to really think about it, I start to stress myself out that I'm behind in planning, sad.gif but for right now we're stalled until we can book the church. At this point I won't have much to contribute, advice-wise, but I certainly could use some moral support! embarrassed.gif

 

Besides that... I'm a Full time nanny in the city, a part-time language coach for Rosetta Stone (I coach Asians in English online) AND I'm in school part-time completing a certification to compliment my bachelor's. I'm a busy girl... I also should include that I have a Pekingese who is the love of my life (sorry, Mike) and I spoil him rotten. HAHA 

 

Very nice to meet you all! 

 

Sara

Hi Sara! Welcome to the group! Sorry you're not in Downers anymore (not that I'm biased or anything cheesy.gif) Maybe we'd have to get together in Downers or Woodfield for the burbs girls or something!

 

I don't think you're behind in planning. Yes, a year will go quickly, but you're fine! Don't worry too much!

Nice to meet you! Thank you, Erica for telling me I'm not behind... I need to keep reminding myself it'll be ok. Destination weddings make me feel like I can't control, just gotta trust. HA

 

My fiance's family is still in Downers and I'm down there every other weekend, I know the area well! I would love a meet up in the future, would be lots of fun!

You are DEFINETLY not behind Sara- you are way ahead of me.  I got engaged on Christmas and we are getting married on November 23, 2012.  So I have less than a year to plan! No worries girl! :)

like others have said, don't worry!  we got engaged at the end of Sept 2006 and got married in early june 2007.  i don't think we decided on a venue until nov 2006.

 

wow, now i feel like an old married lady ... 2007 seems so long ago.

 

and yay, shout out to another downers grove girl!  where do they live in DG?  i'm still learning the area but am waiting to find out that one of you are my neighbor!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
