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.

Chicago Social- An Evening of Bridal Luxury

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.

Event Review: Chicago Social Brides Event

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–


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.

My favorites of the day:

  • Kate Spade — fantastic shoes, stationary, and home furnishings for every bride-to-be to consider
  • Pratesi — lovely home goods including towels, robes, etc. Customer Service was impeccable
  • Amy Beck Designs — great tasting cake with couture design. She is the next big cake designer in Chicago.
