    1. What is your favorite thing about Wisconsin? I grew up on Lake Michigan and went to school on Lake Superior. I think it's cool that we're surrounded by 2 great lakes and love the smell of the lake. I lived in KS with NO substantial lakes around and I so missed the smell.

    2. Where in Wisconsin are you getting married?Racine. ceremony outside at a park area in a golf course and reception at the Masonic Center which I'm excited about.

    3. Why did you choose the month that you did? I wanted a fall wedding with the potential of the fall colors but it got pushed back a few weeks in Sept due to reception availability dates. So probably no fall colors that early, but weather should be perfect.

    4. Are you going to have anything "known" for being from Wisconsin at your wedding? Leinenkugels beer for sure.

    5. What is the favorite thing about your wedding(besides marrying FI)? I'm looking forward to the photobooth. I've been working on DIY's lately too and can't wait to see how all the little details pull it all together.

    6. Do you plan on staying in Wisconsin, or moving once you get married? I also lived in a few other states as well as around WI. I moved back to SE WI because I love it and the majority of my family is here. FI and I are settled in our jobs and he has kids so we won't be moving out of the state!

    7. What is your favorite Disney Movie? The Jungle Book by far!

    8. Are you a Badger Fan? No--but I'll trade the badgers in this question for Brewers! Big Brewers fan and we're planning on spring training for our honeymoon!

    9. Are you a Packer fan? GO PACK GO!

    10. What else you want to say about yourself? UMMM...I've got nothing right now. Drawing a blank!
    Thanks for doing this Beckster!

    1. What is your favorite thing about Wisconsin
    I've gotta go with everyone else here and say the four seasons.  I hate hate hate winter, but love spring, summer and fall.  I also love all the Wisco sports teams.
    2. Where in Wisconsin are you getting married?
    I am getting married in Wausau Wisconsin, having my wedding reception at Stoney Creek Inn.  I grew up there but currently live iwth my FI in Kenosha.
     3. Why did you choose the month that you did?
    I really wanted to get married in October.  I got engaged on Christmas Eve 2009, so that would have been 10 months and I was worried that it wouldn't be enough time for me to plan from far away.  Then I thought about 9/10/11 which would have been my fiance and my 6 year anniversary, plus it was a fun date plus it fell on a saturday, but that was almost too long.  So I picked the first date that felt like it would be spring and hopefully decent out.  I didn't want a summer wedding so May 14th it was.
    4. Are you going to have anything "known" for being from Wisconsin at your wedding?
    I'll have Miller Lite for sure.  There will be lots of food, drinks and dancing!
    5. What is the favorite thing about your wedding(besides marrying FI)?
    Just having a good time.  I'm really excited about my colors.  Girls are wearing black and having apple green flowers.  Going to have lots of flowers at the reception too!
    6. Do you plan on staying in Wisconsin, or moving once you get married?
    My fiance is from Illinois and still works there, but its cheaper to live here so i'm sure this is where we'll stay.
    7. What is your favorite Disney Movie?
    Beauty and the Beast!
    8. Are you a Badger Fan?
    Absolutely!
    9. Are you a Packer fan?
    Also like the Packers but not as much as the Badgers
    10. What else you want to say about yourself?
    I work full time and am working on my masters degree.  There are times that i just want my wedding to be here because its so stressful to plan a wedding for 350 people!  I just try to slow down and stay in the moment.

    1. What is your favorite thing about Wisconsin?
    The landscape! The woods and the hills and... AH. It's just beautiful!

    2. Where in Wisconsin are you getting married?
    The ceremony is in Prairie Farm and the reception and dance are in Ridgeland (snaps for anyone with a remote idea of where that is... hehehe)

    3. Why did you choose the month that you did?
    I wanted a fall wedding, like September-ish, but FI's cousin is getting married in October and her date was set first so we pushed it up a little more. Also, I'm student teaching in the fall so getting married in August as opposed to September just works better.
    We said August, I opened my calendar and FI said "How about the 6th?". Random, perfect. ;)

    4. Are you going to have anything "known" for being from Wisconsin at your wedding?
    Pretty much our entire wedding... Our favors are can koozies, we'll have plenty of beer, the dance is in a town of 345 and everyone is invited, everyone knows everyone, and there will be polka!

    5. What is the favorite thing about your wedding(besides marrying FI)?
    The pockets in my dress... I love the little things hehe.
     
    6. Do you plan on staying in Wisconsin, or moving once you get married?
    We're trying to sell our house right now, but not to move out of WI... To move closer to family in Ridgeland *fingers crossed that someone buys our place*

    7. What is your favorite Disney Movie?
    Beauty And The Beast ;) All time fave.

    8. Are you a Badger Fan?
    Unfortunately I don't follow college football... This year woulda been a good one to start though! They're kickin butt! Next year...

    9. Are you a Packer fan?
    You betcha! Go. Pack. Go.

    10. What else you want to say about yourself?
    Um... I'm a Special Ed. major close to being done! Can't wait to marry my best friend... I'm also really glad that the WI board is livening up ;)

    First and foremost---beckster...we miss you on the May '11 board!!!

    1. What is your favorite thing about Wisconsin?
    I love all the colors in the fall.  And the fact that we get so many different realms of weather.  :)  And the scenery!
    2. Where in Wisconsin are you getting married?
    Plover, WI.  Almost right in the middle of the state!
    3. Why did you choose the month that you did?
    I wanted a spring-ish wedding because I love the colors, plus warm weather!
    4. Are you going to have anything "known" for being from Wisconsin at your wedding?
    Not really.  I might make perfumes for my BM from a place in Door County.  But that's about it.
    5. What is the favorite thing about your wedding(besides marrying FI)?
    My big huge princess dress.  Lol.
    6. Do you plan on staying in Wisconsin, or moving once you get married?
    Staying.  We might move to the Fox City area eventually. 
    7. What is your favorite Disney Movie?
    Beauty and the Beast.  Belle is my favorite princess!
    8. Are you a Badger Fan?
    Not really...
    9. Are you a Packer fan?
    More so now that Favre is gone.  (Sorry, but I just think he is sooooo overrated now).  I went to the Playoff game, his last as a Packer, but now that he keeps going back and forth for retirement jsut shows me we're better off without him)
    10. What else you want to say about yourself?
    I ask advice all the time because I can never make up my mind about the wedding....I'm constantly changing my mind about what I want!

    1. What is your favorite thing about Wisconsin?
    That it's shaped like a mitten - so cute!!
    2. Where in Wisconsin are you getting married?
    Waukesha County
    3. Why did you choose the month that you did?
    I love winter.  It's my absolute favorite time of the year and I have an awesome FI who was willing to indulge me :)
    4. Are you going to have anything "known" for being from Wisconsin at your wedding?
    Nope, not unless there happens to be snow on the ground that day.  Oh, unless you count my garter, which is half Green Bay Packers (for FI)
    5. What is the favorite thing about your wedding(besides marrying FI)?
    I love my invitations.  And my photographer.  And my bouquet.  So...pretty much everything
    6. Do you plan on staying in Wisconsin, or moving once you get married?
    Probably staying since we both have stable jobs that pay well - but I wouldn't be against moving to Colorado.  Or Maine.  Or Alaska.
    7. What is your favorite Disney Movie?
    I don't really have one, sorry
    8. Are you a Badger Fan?
    I don't follow them, but if I know they're on I'll root for them
    9. Are you a Packer fan?
    Not in the least.  I'm actually a Carolina Panthers fan. 
    10. What else you want to say about yourself?
    I'm getting married in 12 days, and I feel like I'm letting people down because people keep asking me f I'm excited about the wedding, and I'm honest about my response which is no, not yet.  Ask me again on 12-10, and hopefully I'll be excited by then.  I just want all the little nit-picky stuff to be DONE!

    My future husband's job is very busy in the summer so we picked October so he could actually get some time off. 

    4. Are you going to have anything "known" for being from Wisconsin at your wedding?

    I am so excited for the next year of planning.  I am sure it will be hard at times but it will also be so much fun.  I want to try to enjoy every second even the hard ones.  I won't ever get to be engaged again so I might as well soak it up while I can.
