Hello there! I see that this board isn’t too used – but hopefully that will change…
I’m new to the boards. We really haven’t done too much planning yet other than the reception/ceremony venue (we are having it at the Mavris Cultural Center downtown).
Our colors are Orange and Brown and really that’s about all we know so far! lol
Actually planning won’t be too hard as my fiance is the manager of a catering business in Indy and he has a lot of other connections that will help along the way.
Just wanted to say hi!!! 🙂

How exciting! If you need vendor recommendations for the Indy area, I have a post on the Indy board. If you want to see pictures, feel free to ask! I’d be happy to share.
Happy planning! =)

cool thanks! i’ll look at that list!
thankfully we don’t have to worry about a caterer (he’s the manager of a catering company)
and their number 1 customer is Easley winery (which i LOVE their wine)…
one of my bridesmaid’s dads is a DJ
and we already have the mavris set up…
now all i need is to find a good but inexpensive photographer. 😀

Our photographers are great AND inexpensive! They originally started out in Chicago, but are now based out of Bloomington and are looking to expand their work in Indiana. My sister’s friend had her engagement pictures taken by them and highly recommended them. http://letsdoshotz.com

I’m in Indy too! Our date is October 3, 2009. I SOOO wanted to have our reception at the Mavris, but we ended up going with the Allison Mansion. Our photographer is Rich Miller (richweddings.com) – $3000 for everything (engagement photos, no limit the day of, assistant, all images on discs, and a hardbound book). We just got our engagement photos and he’s awesome!!!!

Another photog I recommend is Randy Baughn. He’s a former photo journalist for the Indy Star, and works alongside his wife. His website is http://www.randallsonline.com
He did our engagement photos, unlimited wedding day photography (2 photogs), 2 CDs with rights to ALL of the pictures, and a beautiful, Italian coffee table book. All was included in one price.
BONUS: We were able to see 200 teaser photos before our flight left for our honeymoon! He posts them the day after your wedding.

My fiance and I are getting married in Indianapolis in October of 2010. He is originally from the Indianapolis area and I lived in Indy for 4 years… we now live in Chicago.
If anyone has any suggestions of rental companies (we mostly need glassware and plates) would you send them my way please.
Also, Willow and Miss Pinot Grigio – would you mind sharing some of the prices quoted by letsDoShotz and Randall’s? We’re still looking for a photographer, but our budget is very limited.

I am getting married in Noblesville at the Hamilton County 4H Exhibition Center. We are having a huge, traditional Hindu wedding ceremony and my parents have been having a lot of difficulty finding a reception site that will allow outside catering. But we are slowly getting there. I am getting married June 2010. Many of things I am leaving to my family in Indiana since I live in Houston; it’s been a little difficult planning things.

we’re getting married in October in Indianapolis. Looking for a wedding-handmedowns arangement, where maybe 4 brides pitch in to get fabulous table center pieces and decorations and we use it for all 4 weddings. Do something like a 35, 30, 25, 20 split in cost so that the person who uses them first brand new pays 35% of the cost, and the person that uses them last pays 20% of the cost.
I think it would be a way to do fancy design once and get it for CHEAP and be fabulous.
