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!

Chicago Bridal Market Recap- Casablanca

Casablanca is a line we love for its versatility.  Whether it is lace, satin, or fine beading, Casa has it all.  Two gowns to note out of this line this season:  a soft tulle and lace bodice design, also a beaded cap sleeve tulle design.  Truly stunning in person!

Chicago Market Recap- Justin Alexander

There is a reason that Justin Alexander is known for their lace patterns!  I was especially impressed by the lace detailed illusion neckline- sure to be a favorite for our brides.  Another note, they also launched a mix and match line.  We picked up the little tea length in tulle; it is so fun to accessorize to make it your own design!

Blush designer Robert Bullock introduced a hand painted ombre dress.  Available in both gold and silver, this dress was my very favorite at market this season.  Other notes from Robert include the use of structured bodices and plunging backs!
