- Wedding: September 2011
Hi all ,
My fiance and I are planning our wedding while we are apart from each other and he is the one who lives in IL. As a bride to be, I am the one who does the major planning and come up with the ideas like any other bride..and he does help so much. The thing is that is making things more complicated is that we would like to find a venue that we find close to perfect and meets our needs and budget as well. We have been looking the past few visits when I was there and we found nice places and not so nice places..
We are having a small wedding , YET I want it to be my dream wedding (I just dont have a lot of people to invite, half of my parents side of family are overseas..so more likely not coming). The guest number range might be between 75-90.
Our wedding is going to be held at a church near where he lives. He lives in Lake villa, close to him cities called Gurnee , vernon hills..around there lake county. We dont want to have a wedding in the city , thats just not us, However if there is a place with affordable bugdet and not so into the city..then we might let it pass.
Places we have seen so far:
Concorde banquets (horrible room they gave us for small guest number , so SMALL)
Parkway banquet (beatuiful with the lake view BUT has that beachy feeling that is not my vision)
Chevy chase banquet country club (beautiful , top our list)
Arboretum (nice but on the pricy side for us)
Double tree hotel (nice but also on the price side)
Fiance will be seeing few more before he comes to visit me in the fall to pick our venue , we plan to book the venue this fall or winter.
Any other to consider ? Also whats the best hotels to have wedding at ?
