We are still floating around dreaming of BHLDN.

Located at 8 East Walton Street, the new BHLDN store stands to be one of Chicago's finest bridal gems. They opened to the public on Valentines Day!  We can't stop talking about the opening night party. This boutique delivers a unique bridal experience by giving brides the feeling they have been whisked away to an airy parisian boutique. Each room is themed and feels a little magical. Glitter, gold, baubles, flowers and fabrics of all delights are tucked into every corner of this store.  We were enchanted and under it's spell the entire evening.

We sipped on Processco and enjoyed the most delish hors d'oeuvres from Truffleberry Market in Westmont.

The first floor has beautiful dresses in a rainbow of soft colors. The gallery on the second floor has to die for head pieces, shoes, and jewelry. There is room just for ideas, table decor and gifts. Across from that room is the most delicate lingerie and fitting area. The bridal room is exquisite. You can help but want to touch every single dress on the floor. Once you are ready to try on the gowns, you make your way to the most special fitting room.  The bridal fitting rooms can accommodate a good size entourage and have ipod jacks so you can set you own music for the affair.

The bride and bridesmaids dresses are so glamours.  The bridesmaids dresses can easily be worn for more then just weddings. Partnered them with a chic bolero, and the dresses make for stunning evening wear.

It was an incredible night for us. After we had taken it all in, we made our way over to the Martha Stewart Weddings crowd, where we had the pleasure of meeting Darcy Miller, Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Weddings. We can't thank her enough for spending time with us! It was truly a treat to speak with her.

The trip the BHLDN has left us inspired to make beautiful things.

Hope you enjoy the video, I think it pretty much conveys the just how incredible the evening was.  
We also have some amazing photo, please feel free to share your comments. 

Amanda loving the lace on this dress.

I need this jacket. It's on my must buy list. 

They have a "something blue" corner.

Update...BHLDN was awesome and Darcy Miller, of Martha Stewart Weddings, was fantastic. (Yes I got to meet her!) I need to get over my emotional high for the evening and will report back tomorrow.  Amanda and I got some great video shots and between the two of us we took over 200 photos. The store was amazing and surpassed my expectations.
