Hello Ladies,

 

My name is Amie, and I am from Chicago as well!  Chi-town represent :)  My FI is from MI so we decided to get married at Dream Tulum in May 2013 so our families can all meet.  He proposed while we were on vacation for my 30th in Kauai!  So excited, gonna start working on STD boarding passes.  I am not very crafty, but finished my 1st DIT project for my BP.  So exciting to see a midwest group!

Hi everyone!

 

My name is Andrea and I am from Wisconsin. I will be getting married in Montego Bay, Jamaica on April 27, 2013. My fiance Dave and I had been thinking about wedding plans, budgets, etc and after doing some research we decided it was more economical for us to have a destination wedding. We get a vacation out of it, so we don't have to pay for a separate honeymoon, and we both liked the idea of having a smaller, more intimate wedding. We will still have an AHR after we return, but not as extravagant as if we were doing the standard wedding reception here.

 

I have already found so many helpful ideas and tips from this site and look forward to much more. I have completed our wedding website and will be sending out our STDs at the end of the week. I'm so excited!

Hi Andrea!!

I'm from Wisconsin too, just north of Milwaukee.  What area are you from?

Getting out of Wisconsin in April is great.  It's a great start to the spring!

I am southwest of Milwaukee, near the Burlington area. Although this winter hasn't been bad at all, I am sure most of our guests will be greatful to have a reason to head somewhere tropical in April :)

Yeah, this winter wasn't bad... but Jamaica still beats 30 degrees and gloomy!

Hello everyone! My name is Natalie and I am a Midwest Bride as well. I am from a suburb about 40 miles outside of Detroit Michigan. I am getting married in Punta Cana, DR sometime in January 2013 (just waiting on the flight prices, should be this week!!). I am finally down to 2 resorts to chose from and I am ready to start the DIY processes. I plan on doing including the invitations, OOT bags, gifts, Itinerary, etc. My fiance and I got engaged in the DR June 3rd, 2011 and we decided thats where we want to get married but at a different hotel (wasn't a huge fan of our first place we stayed there). We plan on having a AHR reception, more like a casual bbq, for the people who cannot make it. I can say...this has been quite a process and I still have 11 months to go. From some family/friends being rude and saying mean things about our destination wedding to not being able to choose a resort, to seraching for all of the details...but I would not give it up. I am so happy we chose a destination wedding. We have been together for 10 years( yeah I know!) and are ready for this!

I am glad to see more Midwest Brides on here!

Is has been such a weird winter in the Midwest hasnt it? I am used to tons of snow and total for the entire winter I think we have had 8 inches, which always melted the next day because it was 40 degrees! LOL. Most odd winter I have ever seen, makes me happy we sold our snowmobiles last year. ;-)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
