- Wedding: December 2015 - Gibsons (Chicago - Gold Coast)
Woo we’re getting closer! I’m also NYE in Chicago, and it’s been so much fun planning!
Our colors are cream, gold, and green (just be default of what my sister is wearing and what our centerpieces will look like). Here is what we’re doing to add NYE touches:
-photo booth will have NYE props, like 2016 glasses and things that say happy new year
-favors will be mini champagne bottles
-customized napkins with the date on them
-balloon drop at midnight with a champagne toast and countdown.
I think that’s it for now. How is planning going for everyone? I have my first dress fitting next week. Also people should show their dresses – I had a hard time finding a dress that was both “New Year’s Eve – worthy” but also made me feel like a bride!
Still need – cake/cupcakes, finalize flowers, shoes, haven’t even started with hair or makeup ideas (have a feeling I might be winging it! My usual stylist has a baby due on Dec 24th).
How are you doing with the Chicago “Times Square” celebration they are planning? My original preferred venue was less than 2 blocks from the center of the festivities! We ended up in Gold Coast so it’s a good mile away from the chaos.
How is everyone doing with wedding plans? Two months to go!!
So we spent a weekend with friends and no wedding planning, other than talking about our minibook invitation which they had on display and random friends of theirs kept coming up and saying how cool they thought it was. I still have a lot to do, but I’m not too worried just yet.
How’s everyone else doing??
I still have over a year to go, although almost everything is planned to the T. Only thing that we’re missing really is floral and table-scape. What is everyone doing for flowers and table set ups?
SO here’s my check in —- I have an appointment this week to look at a potential VENUE CHANGE. (Yes, a mere 36 days before the weeding we are considering a change of venue). Its part of the same restaurant group as our original and is just across the street, so nothing too drastic, but they offered it up and its got way more space and could better accomodate what we were trying to force into a much smaller area. NO STRESS OVER HERE, RIGHT??? LOL!
I see im in good company! Getting married 12/31/2015. From Canada.
Totally get excited but super nervous at the same time! We are doing typical silver, gold & black for our colours. Oh and lots of sparkle/glitter!!
One week away, ladies! I am currently working on my menu cards and wondering if there is a nicer way to write “Shrimp Balls”…<–having Cantonese food at our wedding.
Just started a new thread, but excited to hear how everyone’s big day went!!
