Hello out there! I've been thinking about starting this blog for a long time, and I finally decided to go for it. I live in Madison, WI and am currently, half-assedly, leisurely planning a wedding here. After asking a venue related question on another wedding website, I was surprised to see how many Madison brides came out of the woodwork and wanted to share their ideas, advice, and make connections. I decided that we need a forum for all this Midwestern generosity, so that is what I'm trying to create. I will be venting my personal thoughts, feelings, and struggles with wedding planning, but I would also love to be a resource for other Madison area brides.
That being said, I want to highlight ideas and resources for those of you, like me, who are not really interested in a hotel ballroom with standard catering. You can get plenty of that at any old wedding show. I want your input and budget-friendly ideas to utilize as many local businesses as possible. Madison has so much quirky uniqueness to offer, and sharing that with out-of-town guests in creative ways is part of the fun of planning this wedding. So ladies, (and hopefully gentleman and LGBTQ folks will want to join the conversation too!) let's keep it clean, make it fun, and help each other out. You with me?
