With (Wedding) Bells On

Join Us for Modern Luxury: CS Bride’s An Evening of Bridal Luxury Sunday, March 16, 2014 5pm-8pm

Winter usually means a bit of a lull in the number of weddings. Those of us in the industry, though, work throughout this respite on developing fresh, inventive ideas for the return of wedding season. That’s why for the last 6 years, it’s been an honor to have Modern Luxury CS Brides invite us to share in their exclusive Evening of Bridal Luxury.

Each year, CS Brides gives a local luxury hotel the opportunity to showcase their offerings as well as work with other partners to provide brides-to-be a sampling of all things opulent for their upcoming nuptials. This year, the lovely Langham Hotel (the building itself having been designed by the renowned Mies van der Rohe) will welcome future brides to explore their elegant event spaces, sample the delectable stylings of their talented culinary staff, and ultimately get a sense of how their own special day might unfold in such surroundings. Partygoers will also enjoy the visual and rhythmic offerings of Fig Weddings and featured selections of top drawer bridal apparel from Belle Vie Bridal Couture. Let’s have a look at some of alluring images of this fabulous event in years past.

These out-of-the-ordinary, captivating designs debuted at the 2012 Evening of Bridal Luxury, hosted by the Trump International Hotel and Tower:

We’re so lucky to be invited by CS Brides each year to share never-before-seen custom designs–giving attendees a glimpse of our most novel ideas in guest table designs, table top focal pieces, bars and accent furniture. Designers will be on hand to answer questions and schedule initial consultations at our studio. Additionally, we work together with Frost Lighting to create a runway complete with lounge areas for guests to relax and enjoy an exclusive showing of the 2014 Vera Wang  Bridal Collection.

What better time than mid-March, as Chicago temperatures edge out the teens and reveal a well-rested but restless population of urban dwellers, to finally allow ourselves to be inspired by spring, and the season of weddings. For those tying the knot:  grab your right-hand man or woman and join us for an evening of fun, fresh ideas and free swag, of course. Be sure to get tickets while you can–this glamourous good time is sure to sell out.
