Hello there!

I’m in the SouthWest Suburbs (Romeoville) and will be getting married in 4 weeks (06.07.08) in Wheaton! I’m originally from MI but moved to be with my fiancee’. I’ve been in the Chicagoland suburbs (Tinley Park and here) for about 8 years now. I’m very excited to talk with other brides about Chicago wedding stuff! Yippee!! 🙂

Hi everyone! I am planning a July 2009 wedding out in Naperville, which is my hometown and where I currently live. Nice to talk with other girls from the area!

 P.S. I love all you Chicago Bees!

Hey y’all!

I’m in Lakeview and planning a downtown wedding in August. We’re getting married at the Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Avenue and having the reception at the Westin across the street. I’m so excited to hear from other Chicago brides!

Hey Ladies!! Yay for Chicago Brides!

 We just set our date for June 6th, 2009 at a place I know Mrs. Emerald is familiar with – The Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook! The ceremony will be at my church in Western Springs (SW Suburb), right next to Hinsdale.

I am just getting started with all of my planning and couldn’t be more excited! I welcome any suggestions you girls may have for Photographers/Bands/Day-of-Makeup or any Chi-town insider advice 🙂

Touchdownkatie- I have a couple of recs for you!

So far, I can recommend my Day of Makeup Artist…  Makeupbydana.com
Dana Armstrong.  She is so. much. fun. and I can’t wait to have her happy spirit around during the wedding day prep.  And she is fantastically talented.  She only does one event per day, and will travel to do only your makeup, even.  Airbrush makeup, with fake lashes, if wanted.  I have a pic of my trial in my planning bio.
And our band…  Patti Lupo Music.  She did my sister’s wedding, too.  Awesome- elegant, fun, not cheesy.  8 piece band.  My fiance and I adore her.
I’ll post other reviews and recs after the wedding (June 14).

Hi all! I live in Lakeview in Chicago– but I’m getting married in upstate NY. So I’m straddling both these boards!

Hey Mrs. Radish– I’m getting married in the Albany area. I grew up in Clifton Park, but our reception is in Troy, NY. YAY for upstate and Chicago pride!

Round Lake? yes, in high school my friends and I used to drive all around up there– just killing time and gas on summer nights. And, yes we do have a venue–we’re getting married at St. Mary’s in Waterford, followed by reception at the Franklin Plaza in Troy. By The Way, your wedding was just beautiful!

Hi Chicago bees! I live in Milwaukee now, but I grew up in Naperville and am getting married in August in Lemont (at the Narnia Estate).

So glad to have discovered WeddingBee — and these boards are way better than theknot boards which are way more difficult to navigate and have some really mean bridezillas on them.

Hi everyone, I agree with PurpleTulips, these boards are so much better than the Knot or Brides.com.

We live in Wicker Park, and our wedding/reception is at the Adler Planetarium this August….so its coming up fast! I’m so glad I found weddingbee….I wish I had found it sooner. Our rehearsal dinner is going to be at Tilly’s since that’s where we had our first date.

Hi Ladies.  I live in River North, but the wedding is going to be in Philly.  I am going dress shopping here, so I read the Chicago Board a lot!  Any BEE meetups in the works?

Joining this lovely party late, but I live in the West Loop, my parents live in Burr Ridge (close to Hinsdale) and I am having my wedding at the Narnia Estate in Lemont, in August of 2009. It’s a little nerve-wracking because I just can’t seem to find much information on the Narnia Estate since it is a relatively new venue, the first photographer I wanted (Life On Prints) was already booked for my wedding date, and also because I am trying to move to Portland, OR! Hi everyone!

Hi everyone, I am new to the party.  I live in Lincoln Park and I am planning to have my wedding in Fall 09.  Would Cafe Brauer be a good place??  I heard the bathroom is not in great shape… um..
