This is one of my favorite events of the year. I wouldn’t miss it!
CS Brides’ Afternoon of Bridal Luxury
Oak Street and Michigan Ave.
For a day of shopping with a heart, please join CS Brides for the Afternoon of Bridal Luxury, the second-annual charitable wedding walk sponsored by the Oak Street Council and Chicago Social Brides. Shop to the sounds of Michael Lerich Productions as you feast your senses on couture gowns, breathtaking jewels, haute cuisine by Greg Christian Catering, delectable cakes and exquisite florals provided by Ronsley Special Events.
Brides will receive a luxury tote bag filled with extraordinary gifts from Oak Street’s most exclusive bridal destinations. The walk begins at The Private Dining Rooms at Spiaggia. A percentage of the proceeds will benefit the American Heart Association.

I had such a wonderful time at the last CS bridal event. It is one of the best bridal events. My only complaint was that the goodie bags were way too heavy for me to be carrying around on the charity walk!
So of course, I cannot wait to attend CS’s spring event. I am also very excited to be attending this event because it will be hosted in Chicago’s newest event space, the Trump Towers.
Tickets can be purchased at the Chicago Social website. Tickets are $60 for the first ticket and $25 for each additional ticket.
Chicago Social Brides is a magazine published by Modern Luxury. It’s a fantatic free publication aimed at readers with high end tastes. This past Sunday, they hosted an event, “An Afternoon of Bridal Luxury“. Arriving a little past noon, I checked in for the event.
The walk took place in about 20 stores on Oak Street from Michigan Ave. to Rush St. It was so much fun! Spiagga kicked off the event by hosting a mini reception. There were about six different designed tables as well as a ton of food and champagne. It is a great venue for a rehearsal dinner or a shower.
There was so much food! I must have tasted at least 10 different types of chocolates, cakes, and sweets. Almost every venue had complimentary champagne. By the end, I just needed water after carrying around loads of free goodies.
Did I say free goodies? Why yes, I did!
At the beginning of the walk, we were given this really cute white and black bag to put in items from each stop. Well, I don’t know what they were thinking– by the time I got hom, I had multiple bags worth of goodies. Check out the swag below–
Best SWAG– EVER
Worst Gift– Tacky, Not Luxury… a faux crystal candelabra
Best Gift– Pratessi hand towels! I will totally be putting these out in our bathroom. They’re lovely.
