We had a wonderful and fun day! We were happy with the way things turned out and my husband really tipped his hat to all the hard work that went into the small details he didn't know about. We got A LOT of compliments from guests on a lot of things which was nice.
Loved our invites from Spilled Ink Press (also located in Chicago) but since we didn't really need someone to tell us what we liked going here was more expensive and took even longer to get delivered.
We used Chrissy from Big City Bride to help us for weekend-of planning. She was amazing! Helped me look ahead and remember the things I wouldn't have even thought about. Then the weekend-of she took care of everything so we didn't have to worry. The next morning the gifts were packed in the car, cake knife and champagne flutes washed and packed, and all the extras packed up as well. Totally worth the money!
Before you buy your dress, shop here. I had fallen in love with a Matthew Christopher dress at a traditional bridal salon then found similar style but even better and 1/2 the cost at White Chicago. Plus they have even better service than most of the bridal salons I went to! PS I recommend using another seemstress to save $. My basic alterations were $475 when I used theirs.
Met with Rebecca one time and she totally nailed what I didn't even know I wanted. I LOVED everything they did! Its a little pricier but I can't imagine being more satisfied with my flowers/decorations.
I love Ana. Unfortunately she got pregnant and was due on our wedding date. We had another photographer which she set up. She did our engagement photos and she is truly an amazing professional.
AMAZING VIEW! You can't really capture it with pictures, however. Our guests loved it. Service was not the best...but nothing huge.
