BHLDN Chicago Opening Party 2.13.12

  I received a private invite from Martha Stewart Weddings to attend the grand opening of this new wedding shop called BHLDN late Jan. BHLDN is Anthropologie's Bridal Line Shop. Their style is so chic, modern, vintage, playful, etc...I love it!  Anyway, the invite indicated that Darcy Miller, Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Weddings will be attending.  I religiously watch the Martha Stewart Show and always see Darcy on the show. My girlfriends and I could not wait to see the store and meet Darcy...SO EXCITING!

  The official grand opening was on Valentine's Day.  I heard they already have tons of appointments. This is their 2nd store opening and the 1st store opened in Houston. Here is the tour of the store, let me know what you think. 

We immediately saw Darcy Miller when we walked upstairs.  She was nice enough to sign our MS Weddings Magazine.  Darcy is so down to earth and we chatted with her for a min.  I love her! :)

Here are some of the beautiful gowns. 

Beautiful Dressing Rooms

There is a shoe line sold in the store called Something Blue and it has a sapphire on the bottom of the shoe...Cute!

This is the Decor Section - Stationary, Keepsakes, Books, Tabletop and Lighting.

The event had a few giveaways the Spring Edition of the Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine and a woman who hand cut Silhouettes, Ruth Monsell from Artful Heirlooms.  This is the silhouette that she did for me.  All freehand no tracing. She is amazing! 
My photo was taken by Debbie
Now to the best part...hors d'oeuvres! The food was provided by Truffleberry Market Catering. Everything was delicious! 

 My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time.  I wish I had more time to take more pics. 
Any future brides to be want a photo shoot at BHLDN? :)
