  • Wedding: June 2008 - Hotel on the westside of Los Angeles

Yay Chicago brides!  Chicago has been my adopted home for two years now and I love it!  I currently live in Streeterville, but after the wedding, I’ll move into Mr. Jasmine’s place in the West Loop.

Hurray for local boards!  I’m getting married in the Northwest suburbs (Wheeling) on June 14.  All vendors are in place, and I just made my long to-do list for the coming month!  Little things crept up on us.  Currently deciding if I (suddenly) want personalized cocktail napkins.  And waiting for my caketopper to be finished and shipped!

Hi there everyone!!

While I live in Los Angeles, I was born and raised in Chicago and still consider it my "Hometown".  My FI and I will be getting married in the city in March ’09!!! So far, we have been back to Chicago just once to start the process, but I have a feeling I will be making quite a few trips back to sort out all the details!

Actually, my next trip is over Memorial Day weekend to go Dress Shopping and speak with Photoraphers!!! 

WOO HOO for CHICAGO BOARD!!!

Jasmine!!

 
When I read your postings about wedding planning, Ive thought the same thing!
 
I looked at having our wedding out here in LA, but it just seemed so difficult/complex…or just FI and I are just that picky.  If $$$ wasnt an issue, my wedding would be at a huge Malibu mansion…
 
That being said, we are stretching our budget a bit to go with a dream of mine – a Downtown Chicago city wedding.  We’ve had quite the experience so far with just locking in a location – we’ve had 3 fall through due to various reasons – but cross your fingers – we have an awesome contract with a pretty awesome place that EVERYONE likes.  Its looking like the 4th location’s a charm!!!

  • Wedding: September 2007 - Hyatt Lodge, Oak Brook IL

Ohhh YAY for Chicago Brides!

I really miss my days of planning and blogging! Mr. Emerald and I got married last September in Oak Brook, and it was the most perfect day we could have imagined =) I still check Weddingbee religiously cuz I can’t let go! We currently live in Hinsdale (SW burb) but are moving to the West Loop in Aug/Sept, so can’t wait to be neighbors with Miss Jasmine! =) Any other West Loop-ers out there?

I’m in Marketing by day, and a Wedding Consultant by night! I’ve just started my own company, Sweetchic Events, Inc. I’ve known for years that I wanted to be a planner, but finally got up the guts to just go for it! Feel free to contact me at [email protected] if you are looking for a planner or DOC (sorry for the little shameless plug )

Hi Chicago Brides 🙂  I grew up in the western burbs (Naperville) and currently live in the South burbs (Frankfort).  I am hoping to move back downtown someday soon- it sounds like I need to go West Loop!

Hi Ladies!

I grew up in Elmhurst and am now living in the West Loop. I’m currently planning my wedding for September 20, 2008. Can’t believe how quickly time is passing! Can’t wait to get to know the Chicago brides a little better on our local board!

West Loop ladies: The *cutest* wedding store has opened up on Madison, right on that strip by Beer Bistro.  It’s called Smitten and I went in there with my friends during my bachelorette this weekend. They have the most darling wedding things!

Ok well I don’t live in Chicago, but I went to one of the most beautiful weddings in your city!! You can read about it here:

We stayed at the W (which I loooove), and the rehearsal dinner/party was at the Twisted Spoke- such a laid back place before such a fancy wedding- it was a nice mix. Anyway just thought I would tell you your city is amazing and I hope to make it back!!

Emerald… I grew up in Hinsdale!  I live and work in the Northwest suburbs now, though.
