Jenny Yoo Redefines Bridesmaids Dresses

I know bridesmaid dress shopping can be a challenge with so many opinions and body types!  So I want to share  a few of my favorite bridesmaids dresses that will have you and your bridesmaids excited and breathing a sigh of relief! 
Jenny Yoo recently launched her latest collection, which incorporates rich and luxurious silks, chiffons and cottons to create an elegant, feminine and refined look. What I love about her collection is that the dresses are beautifully made, high quality and definitely can be worn again for another special occasion. Take a peak at the complete 2014 Collection here!

My favorite dress of the collection is this delicate, flirty dress.

 Clean lines, modern and feminine, this dress is a classic.
You can easily add a crystal belt  for some extra sparkle.
Annabelle                       Wren

How sweet is this soft silhouette? This dress would look fab on almost every body type!
Turn this LBD around for a surprising plunging V back.

These dresses for expecting mothers are flattering as they show off a little baby bump and the mom-to-be will feel stunning in the comfortable fabric.

Honey Bee Weddings is Featured in Chicago Hustles Magazine

So while I was at ALT (the follow-up post is coming tomorrow), I went to the tattoo parlor party hosted by Mail Chimp and got a (temporary) tattoo. Let me tell you, a neck tat is so not who I am, but it was fun for a few days. (Take a peak at my Instagram!) It turned out to be very fitting because Chicago Hustles Magazine just featured me as my life as a wedding planner.

“Hustle means working hard and not giving up. I worked as a consultant for two years full-time while working full-time as a business owner. Two years of many 80 hour weeks was formidable. I am so glad that I took the plunge to be a business owner full-time.”

I am so thankful for the feature.  Thank you Chicago Hustles Magazine.
