This weekend, Rachel and I, along with our husbands, attended the National Bridal Market in Chicago. We had a great time. For us, the highlight of market is seeing our favorite vendors, like Rod & Meg Lammers of MEG Jewelry, Jeff & Jenny Koll of Jennifer Leigh Veils, Luis & Angela Padron of Angelina Bridal Couture, and Stephanie Kennedy of Stephanie James Couture.
We also viewed and bought gowns from the new collections of Casablanca Bridal, Maggie Sottero Bridal, and Justin Alexander Bridal.
And, what would Market be without finding some new pretties to bring into the store? Sondra Roberts is a well-known line of handbags and clutches, featured frequently in fashion magazines. We were delighted to discover their bridal line and purchase some gorgeous little bags for women to use at weddings and other special occasions.
Here is one fun photo that we took at Market. Rachel and her husband, Mauricio, are posing in our hotel lobby next to the Jasmine Bridal sign.
