Great idea denverbirdlet!

 

Both my fiance and I are Illinois natives, but he relocated to WI when he got a job in Madison in Aug of ’08 and I moved up after I graduated college last summer.  We got engaged in July after 6 1/2 years of dating, but have yet to really start the planning process.  (I’m going to the Madison wedding show this weekend, so hopefully we’ll accomplish something there!!)  We’ve checked out possible locations (such as the botanical gardens, which are beautiful!, and the capitol building) but we’re doing this whole thing slowly…not actually getting married until next Sept.

Sounds great! Fiance and I are both grad students here at UW-Madison – getting married at a barn in the beginning of September. We’ll be at the wedding show this weekend as well! Should be exciting!

I’ll also be at the wedding show (Saturday afternoon). We still need to get our DJ.

We’re getting married in September at the Monona Terrace (Community Terrace Room). We have nearly all our vendors, and I just put the deposit on our honeymoon yesterday! If anyone needs any recommendations, let me know! Especially about cake. We visited 4 different vendors. I have tasted more cake in 2 months than I care to admit (and will definitely be having more on Saturday!).

@msmonicka – Haha! Not a bad idea!

@denverbirdlet – yep, ours is outdoors as well…I am really, really hoping for good weather. Or at least, not-rainy. Although then I could make sure to have some cute rain boots on hand…hmm…

I’m a Wisconsin native, but Fiance is born and raised in Texas.  We met while he was on a business trip and then I moved to Texas a little over a year ago.  We’ll be getting married up in Wisconsin though to be near my family.  We’re getting married at Old World Wisconsin in the Clausing Barn.  We visited over Christmas and got most of our vendors nailed down.  It’s so hard planning from so far away but my Mom and Maid/Matron of Honor have been super big helps, running around and taking pictures and meeting with people for me.  We’ll see how it goes when I’ve got to start shipping all my DIY up north!

We ended up going with Carl’s Cakes. Craig’s was a super close second, but Carl’s was less expensive (and less confusing). Craig has tons of options for your cake, which is fantastic, but a little overwhelming for me. Both were delicious.

Hi y’all!  I’m originally from Texas, living in MA with my FH, who is originally from Milwaukee.  I’m moving back to Texas, and he’s moving back to MKE (at some point), and then I’m moving to MKE when I finish school.  We’re gonna get married somewhere in Milwaukee..just not sure yet.  We looked at a few churches and the Masonic Center (which was AWESOME – I have tons of pictures if y’all wanna see) but as our plans have changed drastically in the last two weeks, we aren’t sure when we’re getting married.  I jumped in head first when I originally started planning, had no help whatsoever from his family (I’ll admit, they were all, “shouldn’t you be doing homework?”), so now I’m just taking it slow.  We’re going to figure out what we want at our wedding and go from there 😀
