the BHLDN Chicago store opening was amazing!

My cousin and I went to the BHLDN store opening on my birthday, Monday! I was in constant awe the whole time. It felt like being a little girl going to a princess store. You were surrounded by tulle, silk and beautiful gowns, the second you stepped into the store. We saw dresses with blue sashes, fancy tutus, beautiful trains,  and fantastic shoes. The opening was hosted by Martha Stewart Weddings and the Editorial Director, Darcy Miller Nussbaum, was even there!  We got the most recent issue of Martha Stewart Weddings as a party favor, too! I couldn’t stop taking pictures of all the intricate details and breathtaking fabrics.

Each dress looked completely different in person, and the material was much more interesting than it looks online. (for example)

  I saw lots of cute tea length dresses that would look wonderful on my sister-in-law.

I loved the beading on the Tulle Era dress.


It’s a good thing this store didn’t exist when I got married! 

BHLDN even has delicate and intricate jewelry. 

There were so many people at the opening that we were not able to try dresses on but we’re planning on going back soon. I love weddings and it’s so fun to play dress up!
