Rachel & I left early yesterday morning for Chicago, to SHOP at the Bridal Market! We spent several hours at the Merchandise Mart, and then headed to Michigan Ave for dinner at our favorite place - Grand Lux Cafe!
Brides, you know that feeling that you get after you sign the purchase contract for YOUR GOWN? Imagine signing for 20-30 gowns in one day; I feel quite overwhelmed this morning!
We had a very fun time; one of our first stops of the day was to see Jenny at Jennifer Leigh; our veil and hairpiece vendor. We purchased some new veils to bring into the store; especially some fun SHORT ones!
Although we love each gown that we purchased for September's Bride, we were very impressed with the Justin Alexander collection as a whole; we think our brides will be, too!
Of course, we stopped to visit with our friends, Rod & Meg Lammers, from MEG Jewelry; we've been seeing alot of them lately!
Stay tuned for more Market reflections throughout this week...
September's Bride...a fresh approach to formal.
