Meet up

Whatever happened to the post about trying to do a get together? I can't find it.   Did it ever happen?  I'd be up for meeting for some drinks/appetizers maybe in June if anyone is interested.

    Let's meet up!

    I think a lot of times we wait for everyone to respond and that can take a while to choose a date, place, etc.  I say someone pull the shotgun and choose the date and place.  As long as there is another bride there, I'm down to meet!  Would love some bridal support before the wedding!  Cool

    Count me in!

    My brother just got hitched and I am 500 days away from mine and that seems REALLY far away so I'd like to get into the wedding mood :)

    Before it seemed like during the week nearer the city worked better for everybody

    What if we did something in the Oakbrook area?  There's lot's of places off Butterfield Rd.  We can see if that's central for everyone.

    Would Oakbrook be wknd or weeknight?

    Oakbrook is a hike from my work in Evanston so if it is during the week, I could be there a bit later

    I know we can probably not accomodate everyone as far as location, but what works better for the majority?  Oakbrook area or Schaumburg/Woodfield area?  Or, any other suggestions?  I just figured those two are easy access from the highway or either direction.  

     I vote for a happy hour after work, but if a weekend is better we can see if that works.  

    I'll throw the first option out, one day during the week of June 11th, 5pm or whenever you can get there.  I am just going to be getting back from vacation so I don't know if I could swing the prior week, but if that works better then I'll do my best.  Location TBA.

    Thoughts?

    Week of June 11th sounds good to me!

    If it's Schaumburg, I can do happy hour during a weeknight, except for Wednesday.

    If it's Oakbrook, definitely over the weekend.

    Thanks MrsM!  I hope so haha!!  Thats what everybody keeps resassuring me!

    Schaumburg would be a lot better for me during the week, but I can do Oakbrook, too...just a bit later.  Weekends are harder for me because I am on call at the hospital, but I can work around whatever!

    I think we may have lost a few posts.  TK was acting strange yesterday and I had trouble viewing the posts I had sent.  Hopefully it's all back to normal now. 

    Here are a few options
    Dates: Tues June 12, Wed June 13 or Thurs June 14
    Places: Buffalo Wild Wings - Roosevelt Rd., Lombard
    Rock Bottom Brewery - Yorktown Mall, Lombard
    Houlihan's - Oakbrook Mall, Oakbrook
    Lou Malnati's pizza - Schaumburg
    Geno's East pizza - Rolling Meadows

    I guess we will see when/where works for the majority and go with that.  Then the next one maybe we'll have in a different location to accomodate others.

    Let me know what you think.  Happy Friday!  Hope you all have a great weekend!

    Hey everyone,

    sorry i just saw this board, and saw that you guys will be meeting up. I could defnietly use some help from other future brides, is it ok for me to come to this meeting as well? or is it just for certain people? Its ok if it is, i just though i'd ask.

    Thanks :)

    Of course!  Anyone is welcome!  We haven't decided exactly when and where so just keep checking back!

    I'm going on vacation and won't be on here for a week.  Hopefully when I get back we'll have some more people who want to meet up!  I'll check when I get back and we can see what works for everyone.  Have a great weekend!

    I'm late to this post, but will be getting married 12/1/12 in Rosemont! Is that week still a go for you all?
  • Options
    Hi Ladies,
    Would love to meet up with you all! I created a survey so that we can pick the most mutually agreeable dates/times/locations. Can everyone respond to this and I will let you know on here or by e-mail what everyone decided? I think that may be easiest!



  • Options

    what if we do the 12th in scaumburg at the fridays which offers more than just pizza and the 13th in oak brook at rock bottom which is gonna be the quitest option cuz im guessing we wanna be able to talk.  i am willing to take charge and make reservations if needed this way everyone can make one or both.

  • Options
    That sounds good to me. I'm in.

    Heres just a  suggestion, but some of the ladies i chat with in another forum have been trying to get together for months, since we all started planning our weddings (which seems like a life time ago lol) but anyways we all got complimentary tickets to the bridal show, The Wedding Salon that wil be in chicago next week.. we figured free tickets, free drinks, free food and all the wedding stuff we could imagine what better way to get together.
    It is just an idea for you ladies to get together!! hope it was helpful ( =
