    Hi uniquepinkink!  I'm from Mount Pleasant...just a skip away from you.  Sorry I'm just now responding I usually spend time on the Des Moines board since this one is really pretty quiet.  We are doing everything here in Mount Pleasant but I've been to a lot of weddings over in Burlington at the Pzazz and the Comfort Inn and Suites.  There are also a ton of parks and I believe the Howard Johnson is under new management, last time I knew that place had a big make-over and looked really really nice.  I'm not sure on your wedding style, but maybe if you tell me more what you are looking for I might be able to help.I really wanted to do have my dinner rehearsal on a river boat cruise on the Mississippi...but we didn't get to do that with our large group...and I'm not even sure if they have such a company that does that, but I thought it was a different and fun idea.  Good luck and congratulations on your engagement!

    Hi there! I'm just getting on the QC boards for the first time and just found your post from July. I grew up in Wapello, live in QC, and getting married in Burlington in May 2010. We are using the Event Center at the Pzazz for both our ceremony & reception. I chose that venue so the guests would have something to do during their downtime. It's a fun place for all ages. I had my parents' 40th wedding anniversary party there, reception style, with about 60 people last November and Teresa, the event coordinator at Fun City, was phenomenal! Food was great, awesome bar service, the space worked well for our group, and they were very accommodating to special requests. Everything went off without a hitch. So when my FI proposed two weeks later, I called Teresa and booked right away. I'm using Burlington in Bloom for my flowers, Country Cakes & Cookies for my cake (Morning Sun), Studio Classics for some of the reception decor (Danville), and Humphreys Sound for DJ (Winfield). We're using a QC vendor for photo & video - MI Studios - they do amazing work. We're doing the rehearsal dinner at The Townhouse (I think that's the name - my mom picked it out) down by the river. And we'll do a bunch of photos at the river on our wedding day. That pretty much summarizes what I've got going in the area. You're probably well on your way with your planning by now. Feel free to write if you have any questions or just need to vent. Good luck!!!
