Congratulations!

I am familiar with Vendors in WI, I’m sure they travel though.

Do you have any family or friends that could meet vendors here, or have you thought about hiring someone?

Either one of those might make the long distance planning so much easier!!

We used George Steet photo, they have a location in Chicago, Naperville, Schamburg.  They are amazing.  My photographer stayed later than contracted since our wedding was amazing.  If you need more help let me know.  I love planning weddings.

No specific advice, but I’d investigate the advantages of Northwestern being so nearby. It’s got a good performing arts school and you might be able to find musicians/bands/singers/acappella groups/choirs/amateur DJs for less money.

my wedding planner just did a wedding at the Orrington Hotel a few weekends ago..LaDi events (she’s our DOC). We live in Evanston and met our photographer for engagment pictures out here a few weeks ago too and she mentioned she’s done a few things out this way, Kara Schultz.

For Video check out Jeff from Shoot the Bride films.

For Flowers, go to Kio Kreations.

I’m from Skokie too! We’re getting married just up the street at the Woman’s Club of Evanston! Our out of town guests will be staying at the Orrington, as will we. The vendors we are using so far are: Erica Rose Photography (she just did our engagement photos in Evanston and they were great!), Simply Perfect by Melissa (DOC), and Toast and Jam (DJ). 

For my FSIL’s wedding (this summer) we got our hair done at Salon Lotus (on Davis Street). They were able to do all 7 of us in two shifts and everyone’s hair looked really nice. If you like Benefit cosmetics there’s a boutique in downtown Evanston and they will do your make-up if you buy three items.

 

Good luck with your planning!
