Dear Santa, Please Pinterest

Dearest Santa,

Big City Bride hopes you are resting today after a very busy Christmas. We didn’t ask for much this year….we were way too blessed by wonderful clients and friends to write you a letter. Our job as Chicago wedding planners is to make dreams come true…to create magic and memories that people will never forget. Perhaps we take after you just a little bit. Except, we tend to wear black not red.

One of our dream for the year was to create a Big City Bride Pinterest page to showcase some of the amazing Chicago weddings we have planned and to help inspire brides and grooms in their wedding planning. We can officially say we’re excited to have a Pinterest page that does just this! Now if only more brides knew to follow us and pin away! 

Santa – please bring us Pinterest followers to share the amazing Chicago wedding photographs we have shared with the whole world. We hope that as our past brides search through Pinterest looking for recipes, new home decor and parenting tricks that they may stumble upon a photo or two of the amazing wedding day we helped them plan.

That is all. Have a very merry day!

With love,

Big City Bride


P.S. Look how pretty it is:

Brenda and Chuck’s Featured Wedding

Brenda and Chuck’s wedding at the InterContinental Chicago was an absolutely stunning event. The reception was soft, romantic, and intimate that featured textured linens, gold and navy accents, and mirror bar tops. Big City Bride’s Crystal created an amazing space for the couple to enjoy their special day. The reception was welcoming and cozy, which allowed for Brenda and Chuck to truly enjoy the company of their friends and family. 

What an honor to be the Chicago wedding planners behind such a wonderful wedding. We are so happy to see their beautiful day featured and can’t wait to share this great Chicago wedding with you! Be sure to check out the blog on the Occassions blog. 

Please note … Riverbend Studio is responsible for all the beautiful photos!





When She Knows You’re Going To Propose…

The Thanksgiving left overs are gone and the Christmas lights are up. Family get togethers are planned and friends are anxious for an excuse to gather and celebrate the season. This truly is an amazing time for proposals … and thus they are happening … everywhere you look! The wedding world is a buzz with recently engaged couples trying to find their 2014 date and set plans quickly before Christmas and the New Year.

That said…you may be seeing a lot of proposal photos, stories or videos on Facebook and Youtube…but this one stands out. Here is what one man decided to do when his girlfriend caught wind of his proposal plans. Every girl waiting for a ring can relate to the occasional “is this happening!?” moment when he kneels down to….tie his shoe?

As Chicago wedding planners…we love a great wedding proposal story. Reach out to Big City Bride if you’re recently engaged and looking to start the wedding planning. We can help you pick a Chicago wedding venue so you can share your wedding date at Christmas dinner… or on a Christmas card save the date!
