Event Review: An Evening of Bridal Luxury at the Four Seasons

The Four Seasons hosted the third annual Chicago Social Brides event, An Evening of Bridal Luxury.  The ballroom, which had been recently remodeled, included decor by Heffernan Morgan.

The event included a Vera Wang fashion show.  The show was a welcome departure from the recent clean lines and minimalism of years past.  

Embellishments!  Statement Necklaces!  Colored Sashes!  

I was in heaven.  The gorgeous make-up was done by Sonia Roselli as well as Jen Jackolin from Sonia Roselli Esthetique.

Below are some of images from the show.  All images are from Dennis Lee.

Event Review: Chicago Social Evening of Bridal Luxury

It was the death of Polyester White.

Last month, Chicago Social hosted a Vera Wang fashion show at the Trump Towers. The show included dresses in ivory, crème, champagne, as well as pink, cranberry and eggplant…but absolutely no white.

Hurrah! Let’s be honest ladies, most girls do not look good in white. Besides, more luxurious fabrics, like silk and satin, don’t come in that retched bright “polyester” white.

What do you think? Is anyone else glad to see an end of an era?

Event Review- Chicago History Museum Event

Last week, I went to an event at the Chicago History Museum with a client, A, and her Maid of Honor, J. The event was co-hosted by Chicago Social Brides. One of my favorite museums in Chicago, I absolutely love this venue for a wedding.

While I forgot my camera, I did snap a few shots from my trusty Treo.

A Perfect Event, one of the premiere event design companies in Chicago, designed this table set-up. They incorporated bold black and white with light greens and silver. If I hadn’t seen it in person, I wouldn’t have thought that I would enjoy it so much!

The flowers from Botanicals blew me away. Fuchsia, Black , and White. What is not to love? I love the powerfulness of the décor. It was absolutely beautiful…. And something that I thought that would look great with my future weddings plans, as long as they were tweaked.

Crazy bride that I am, I decided to change elements of my event design weeks before my wedding. I may live to regret this…but right now, I’m enjoying living on the edge.
