Hello Ladies!

I’m a Grand Rapids bride!  My fiance Jay and myself have a date 9.10.11 (lovvve it πŸ™‚ ) I’m new to this Weddingbee…but I love the support I see.

I saw a couple of threads talking about photographers and stuff so I thought I would share what I have..please ignore the overly PEPPY tone of my post…I find it hard to contain myself.
If you want an AMAZING photographer who travels much of West Michigan you HAVE to look up allenwaterford.com .  I’m sooo excited for him to do my wedding.  He’s so wonderful and sweet. He really looks after the bride in making sure she gets her perfect pictures. He will work with you on price, but let me tell you HES WORTH IT.  I was able to meet with him and he had a wonderful portfolio to show me. VERY professional!  My friend used him and nothing but the highest of reviews and her pictures were simply the most beautiful pieces of art! 

My wedding is at Point of Grace Chapel in Coopersville… Its a smaller venue (about 160 fit in the chapel).  The owner Carol Rasch was very sweet. She is very proud of her chapel (as she should be!) the only down fall is it is not handicap accessible but I have ushers helping up my family members!!

My reception area is Fallasburg Park.  I’m stoked…it is simply beautiful there..and I get to get pictures near the covered bridge!!!  But if you want Fallasburg make sure you call early (they accept 1 year in advance) Saturdays fill up FAST! I’m very excited because I get the pig roast that I wanted πŸ™‚

My aunt is making my cake and my Uncle Lee Limbeck and his band are the music!  You have to check them out as well. http://www.wearelivinthedream.com/home/  (great music…and theres no breaks!)

I see a lot of ladies going to Davids Bridal..everyone should check out Beckers Bridal too!!!! Thats where I found my one of a kind dress!

SOoo question: Anyone else feeling that push to make their wedding something unique and different?   I am….I have some pretty out there ideas I was wondering what you all think!

1. All members of wedding party wearing converse

2. The guys are wearing jeans (my fiance looks horrible in a monkey suit..and its just not us)

3. Pig Roast…

 

Does anyone have any really unique ideas?

Oops…I somehow managed to delete my Post. Go me..

 

My name is Cre, my Fiance’s name is Jay.  We have our Wedding Date set for 9.10.11.

 

I am new here..hence the deleting posts… I was hoping people could give me some unique ideas on how to make my wedding stand out from the others…

We are already having everyone wear pink or black Converse shoes, the men will be wearing jeans (the nice cut ones of course lol) black shirts, pink ties.. the girls short black dresses.  Our reception is a pig roast at Fallasburg park..  

Our theme is Vintage Movies….any ideas ladies?

@hallhubbell2010: 

I’m also from the southwest MI area.  Where in KZoo are your having your reception?  It seems there are two price ranges in the area dirt cheap or very expensive. ughh…..

Hi Ladies, I am from Chicago and getting married in Saint Jospeh in September.  There aren’t many frrelance make-up and heir stylists I am finding.  I need someone that will come to my hotel room the day of and does the works- airbrush make-up, lashes, etc.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  I would prefer someone in SW Michigan to avoid paying travel fees. 

Thanks!

Joanne

@JoJoPetters10:  I hope your wedding was beautiful!  I’m getting married in St. Joseph, MI on 4/27/13 (“it’s going to be beautiful weather,” that’s my new mantra!).  Did you find hair & make-up people you were happy with?  Any other vendors you’d recommend?  I’ll take a look at your reviews.  We’re doing in this in 5 mos. from out-of-state, so any help would be greatly appreciated!!
