Not sure if there are any other Minnesota brides on the board?
Also, thanks for the recommendation of the BDW Travel Agents! I didn't know where to start with TAs - so thanks!

Buying a house is definitely an extra stress. Hopefully everything will fall into place though so you can start planning your wedding and your life together
Yep, Trish is right, I was a Mpls girl ... still am at heart. I was born and raised in the western burbs, Maple Grove/Plymouth. But for the years before moving to Chicago we lived in Minneapolis, close to Lake Harriett.
As for buying a house - we did that too! We closed on April 7th and married in June ... may as well get it all done!

The TA I am working with is great - an internet agency based in PHL, but am dealing directly with the owner. Super responsive and I have used him for years for other vacations and referred lots of people to him over the years. We just nailed down the contract for our room block at the IB Tucan/Quetzal. Now we need to send out invites so people can go and book.
where in NW chicago? i currently live in Downers Grove
