Iowa brides!

Just wanted to know how many Iowa brides are here on pw....where are you from?  where are you getting married?  What's your story?  


I feel like a lot of websites I visit are very focused on the coasts, the mountains, and Chicago.  So let me know I'm not alone!


 


I'm from Monona, IA and will be getting married in Elkader, IA with our reception in Monona!

I think erindira is from Iowa, and jackieg doesn't live there, but is maybe from there?


Welcome, btw!

I'm from Wisconsin... Yes, you're right, most people on here are coastal, not many midwesterners.

I live in Marshalltown, IA...moved from Chicago to be with FI 2 years ago.  However, I'm getting married in my hometown in Illinois...Mattoon...about 3 hours south of Chicao and 2 hours east of STL.  I agree, meganly, everything is focused towards the coasts and Chicago.  I actually got my dress in Chicago.

I'm from Iowa! Right now my FI and I live in Ames, IA, but I grew up in Burlington (like jackieg!) and that's where I'll be having my wedding and reception. It's nice to hear from other midwesteners since a lot of the posts are about topics I know nothing about (particular venues in Cali, etc.), and sometimes my Iowa wedding seems nothing like the coastal ones. Welcome to PW!

I know how you feel Erin.  On the upside, the costs for things like locations are way more affordable!  Flipside?  Very few locations to choose from, and even fewer that would be really worth it.

I'm having mine in iowa!  I just moved to Minneapolis, but coming back for the big day.. having trouble finding a venue that makes me happy, thinking the Salisbury house.  Anyone have anything good/bad to say about it?  :)

I've seen a lot of pics from weddings at the Salisbury house and they're all gorgeous!  How big of a wedding are you having?

I live in Wisconsin right now, and we're having the wedding in Michigan, where I grew up. But FI's whole family is from Cedar Rapids. Both FMIL and FFIL grew up there, so we visit the grandparents and allllll the aunts, uncles and cousins a few times a year!

Does anyone know of anyone who does Bpics in this area?  I have been seriously thinking about this because it has come so highly suggested by all the PW girls.
