Hi Kentucky Brides!
Are there any 2010 brides out there? I see that our Ky board has been inactive for a while but I would love to chat with fellow brides about wedding details, entertainment, etc.

Present! Are you from Lexington and having your wedding in NY, or the other way around? I’m from Atlanta but I currently live in Lexington.

Hey ladies! I am from Kentucky as well…born and raised in Campbellsville but lived in Bowling Green for the past 5 years. I just recently moved to my fiances’ hometown, Paducah, Kentucky. It is quite an adjustment but a necessary move. Its good to see all of you Kentucky ladies floating on WB!!!! A lot of you are from Lexington and Louisville. That’s cool! I looooooove Louisville (and yes, I am a die-hard Cards fan)!!! HA! Enjoy your day friends!

Yay! So glad to see you all here!
@KMSull – I need to change my cities so that it’s a bit clearer! Sorry about that!
I’m living in NYC and am having my wedding in Ky – on a farm near the Red River Gorge! It’s going to be small – about 40 to 50 close friends and family. I’m having guests stay in Lexington and am having my rehearsal dinner and day after wedding brunch there too.
@ToyToy10 – How do you like Paducah? Your wedding is so close! You must be excited!
Where are you having your weddings Ladies? Any flower deicisons, entertainment yet?
I’m thinking of pink and green flowers for my floral arrangements but other than that, still thinking of colors.
I originally wanted four of my closest friends to be my BMs but since it’s a small wedding anyway, I didn’t want to single out any of my friends and make the rest not feel as special. So, I’m having my oldest and closest friend as my Maid/Matron of Honor and my Fiance is having his brother or his bf as his Best Man.

@Mrs Dee to Bee – where in Tx is your wedding? I went to visit FI’s family over New Years in Houston and we took a trip to San Antonio and Austin – I am officially in love with Texas! The poeple were so gentile and kind and we had such great food, too.

Hi Kentucky brides! I’m originally from Louisville, I went to college in Lexington, now I live in Boston, MA, and I’m getting married in Louisville this summer.
@Tiger and Pearl…I love the Red River Gorge area. That’s going to be so pretty!

… just a thought, but Red River Gorge is about an hour and a half away from Lexington. That’s a loooooooong drive after a reception!

@blyelikethat – Welcome! A Louisville wedding this summer is going to be fab-u-lous! More importantly, are you a Wildcats or Cards fan? Thanks so much – you’re so sweet to say that about the ceremony – I love the Gorge too!
@KMSull – yeah, that’s a very long drive after the reception! We’ve hired a coach to drive out of town guests to and from the Gorge area, which is our ceremony and reception site. Hopefully people will be cool with that. We’re serving lunch and drinks on the coach so they can build up their strength for the day
It was important for me to have it at my grandparents’ cabin and farm close to the Red River Gorge but still have the convenience of Lexington for the airport (lots of our guests are from out of town), accomodations and rehearsal dinner location. We’ll see how it goes! Crossing fingers that it will be a fun and relaxing day for all.

Represent! 😀 I’m an 8.9.10 bride, getting married in Lexington. 🙂 I moved up here from Florida 3yrs ago to be with my Fiance, who’s from the area.
I just commented on the “welcome” post with more detail about me, my Fiance and our wedding: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/weekly-welcome-jan-25-feb-1st/page/2#post-1065518
Nice to meet everyone! 😀

I didnt realize there was a KY board until just now! I will have my big day in western KY! I haven’t officially started planning yet because I am still in the research phase and both of us are trying to figure out what our dream day will look like. My parents reside in Louisville so of course I am a Cards fan and I must also say GO WILDCATS like the rest of the brides! I am glad that I finally found this board!

Hi Miss Moo and SweetNote – so glad you found the Ky Bride Board and WELCOME!
Miss Moo – I want to know about your wedding details – I love love love envisioning them! Who are your vendors and lucky you for getting such a fabulous discount on everything! Go girl! Have you decided on which flowers you want?
SweetNote – Western Ky is so pretty and an October wedding is going to be lovely. Which venue are you looking at as a possibility for your venue? Have you started looking for dresses?
I’m currently looking for dresses and found only a couple that I like. I think I’m going in the direction of non-wedding-gown route. It’s an outdoor wedding so simpler the better when it comes to the dress – don’t want too many bugs crawling around in the layers
Flower-wise I think I’m going to have pink penoies as my bridal bouquet, and I am even thinking for the reception flowers to incorporate of pink football mums, pink roses, green hydrangea or maybe pink parrot tulips. I’m still sort of deciding right now but my florist is very talented and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with. We’re decorating the porch on which we’re getting married with ferns and other greenery – we want to make it as lush as possible.
Your turn ladies!

@Tiger and Pearl- I have not started planning yet still in the research phase trying to see where i can get more bang for my buck. Plus Fiance is now saying he wants to have our reception in IN instead of KY where we are having our ceremony. I mean its only 20 minutes but I hate the idea of making our guests travel too much plus worried we will lose somebody in the travel to the reception.
Fiance went with me to Super Bride Sunday and I was definitely let down. I just thought there would be more vendors. In reality they were all the ones that I read about online! So disappointing since I thought there might be a hidden gem out there.
I am ordering my dress online but not sure if I should go into a bridal store just to try some on and get the feel of it or should I just go to an alterations shop and have them take my measurements since I pretty much know I am buying the dress online.
Sorry for the delay!

What fun!! Sorry I am so late. I am from the Bardstown area (45 minutes from Louisville or Lexington). We are getting married at My Old Kentucky Home State Park and the reception will be on the grounds as well. I ordered my dress at the Wedding Center in Lexington and cannot wait for it to come in! I am using Swans Landing out of Cambellsville for my food, linens, centerpieces and flowers. Our photographer is Ben Keeling out Richmond, he is very talented, so check him out if you don’t have a photographer booked. Not sure what we are going to do about music for the wedding yet, but at the reception we are having a local artist, Andrew Scott Newton play. I will post some pics below just so you can get some ideas of colors that we are going with, see my dress and wedding and reception site.
It is fun to hear what others are doing, especially in the same area.
Good luck everyone and congratulations on all of your weddings!
Oh and GO CATS! 😉
