Hello ladies! I just joined this board although we’ve been engaged since October of last year. We’re getting married in Escanaba (that’s where he’s from) but right now we live in Indiana. Right now I have our reception area (the Terrace- I see someone else is using them too!), our ceremony place (family’s huge yard), our photographer, we’re doing our own music, and my dress. We still have a bit left to do but we’re well on our way. I notice there isn’t much activity on here but I look forward to talking with people on here!

We are planning a Michigan wedding. Live in Kalamazoo but the wedding is at the beautiful Acorn Theater in Three Oaks Michigan (4 miles from Indiana). It’s an hour away but the best venue I’ve ever seen. Good to see another Michigan bride!

I’m also new to all of this! I swore I would never join one of these sites but I broke down today. I think it is a wonderful way of giving and getting support from other future brides! I am getting married July 10th, 2010 and as soon as I hit the 1 year mark I started to panic! So much needs to be done its nerve wracking! So far we have our venue, we are using the Burbank Airport Marriot. Has anybody on here used that venue before? Good luck ladies!

Miss Scarlet: That would be quite funny if our fiance’s know each other! He actually is from Bark River, not Escanaba. But very close. Just curious, who do you have so far for your venues? We have the Terrace as you know, and then we’re using Fawn’s Photography for our pictures. We still need to find a cake place and a florist.
Thank you everyone for your welcomes! I look forward to this site!

My parents live in Bark River! Cool!
I’m using Fawn’s too!! She is really sweet. She did one of my bridesmaids’ weddings, and I really like her.
My best friend does wedding cakes as a side business, so she’s doing my cake. Do you have pictures of what you want? I can pass them along to her!!
I haven’t booked a florist yet!! Shame on me! I like Flinn’s, though. I’m not a fan of Wickerts or Delta Floral.
We have Taylored Entertainment for our DJ if you decide you want to go tat way. He’s great!

Hey ladies!I am also from MI not really northern more central though I am about 30 minutes north of Mt. Pleasant. Although our wedding is set to be held in Midland at Dow Gardens July 24th 2010 .. any other Dow Gardens brides out there?? I would love to see or hear more about the venue… soo much changes wach season with the setting being a garden and I am interested in how things work out there!?
Thanks for starting the Mi thread. We northern people have very limited venues it seems like compared to the southern part of the state.
Congrats to all !!
