Hey ladies! New here and looking for wedding ideas of course. 🙂 Quick intro: FI (34) and I (27) are from Northern IL. Met on New Years Eve 2011/2012 and have been attached at the hip ever since. He is the greatest love of my life.. I knew he was “the one” the night we met.. all that mushy stuff. 🙂 Strange because I never, ever wanted to get married. I didn’t really believe in true love either. I was Miss Independent.. I was the heartbreaker. But my man changed all that. He fought for me like no one ever has. We’ve made it though many ups and downs (got the “in sickness and in health” part down already ha!), and still he’s been the most stable thing in my life. Truly my best friend. He proposed in June of 2013, and are planning for an April or May 2015 wedding. Can’t wait to share here and get inspired!!!

Hi there! I am from IL too (the northwest burbs) and actually went to NIU for college. My fiance and I are getting married August of 2015! Happy planning!! Have you thought of a date or started to look at venues??

Also I’m not sure if the image for your icon is yours or just a stock image you found, but I LOVE it!

diamond101987: We’re not sure what date to go with.. just because of the way the weather has been here! Originally we wanted an April wedding.. but considering it was still winter in April here this year (wasn’t that awesome?! Ha.. not!), we’re thinking of waiting until later in May. We’re going back and forth between a country/backyard wedding and having it at a venue. I really like the Starline Factory in Harvard, IL. It’s close to home and beautiful. Rustic.. very much our style. 🙂 Time to make some decisions I suppose. Congrats to you and your FI!!!!

NlovesM87: Welcome! I live in the midwest….yes, April was fun. I kept waiting for the green to come….and kept waiting. It’s finally spring where I’m at, but still not as warm as it should be! Have you considered June?
