Chicago Bridal Market Recap!

Good Morning Ladies!  I have an extra cup of coffee in my hand today!  This morning came pretty fast after our whirlwind trip to Chicago Bridal Market this weekend.  Here are a few of the trends that we saw in Chicago.  I am so curious what your thoughts are about each! Chime in please!

*Low, low Necklines:  Designers are pushing the envelope with the cut of necklines this season!  I feel like all of the deep cut necklines we saw were tastefully done with varying levels of illusion to accompany and add interest.  I do see this neckline being more difficult for brides who are fuller figured in the bust; there simply isn't enough structure to keep the girls looking their best :)

*Cut-out and Illusion Bodices:   We saw everything from full cut-out bodices (think Pnina Tornai) to illusion cut-outs on the sides of the gown bodice.  I am a huge fan of the delicate illusion cut-outs on the sides.  They were so well done; very tasteful and on-trend.

*Jeweled Wedges:  Our Blush Brides love their wedges by Badgley Mischka!  We were excited to see two new designs with a different heel height and strap option.  We also found the most adorable ballet flats to add to our collection at Blush!

*Colored Stones:  Our Blush Brides love their bling!  You know how much we love to customize every piece of your accessories at Blush :)  Ti Adoro is a great new designer we are adding to our jewelry collection this spring.  Our brides have the ability to choose stone and metal color for each piece!  What color stones would be perfect for your wedding look?

Hope you were able to follow along on Instagram using the #bethebuyer hashtag!  We had such fun hearing from our brides in real time about what they want to see at Blush!

As always, we'd love to hear your questions and thoughts!

After- Hours Bride Mollie

Sweet bride Mollie was our winner of an After Hours Private bridal appointment that we recently gave away as a prize at the Complete Music Bridal Fair back in January.  Mollie and 4 friends/family members were treated to an evening of bridal gown shopping at Blush where we catered just to them!  

Mollie and 4 of her guests were treated to cupcakes from Le Cupcake, a Bachelorette party from The Corky Canvas, bubbly and shopping all while being photographed by Corey Rourke for an unforgettable keepsake of pictures of the day she found her bridal gown!  PS.  None of the pictures of Mollie show her in her actual bridal gown- we will save that surprise for later!

After Hours Appointments are perfect for bride who is looking for a fun night out with their girls and the boutique is all yours!  Interested in more details?  Contact us:  402.261.5615 or
