Liz's Wedding- As Beautiful As We Had All Imagined!

Liz, our lovely Tuxedo Manager got married this past Sunday, and the day couldn't have been more perfect! The wedding was held outside at the Golden Mast with the weather being the kind of weather you dream about for an October wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and once in awhile a gust of wind brought the colorful fall leaves scattering down on the wedding party and guests.

Liz wore an Allure Couture gown, which she kept a secret from us so we would be surprised. And we all were. As soon as I was her walk down the aisle my eyes filled up with tears because she was so radiant. Her makeup was natural with a bit of glam and in her hair she wore a flower on the side and a pouf veil which perfectly accented her hair do.

Her Bridesmaids wore different T-Length gowns by Alfred Angelo in Marine Blue which looked amazing with her accent color of yellow. Her flowers were done by Jo-Mar Floral in Waukesha and to top off all the fun colors the girls all wore yellow shoes. (How fun) The men rented the tuxes 982 Parisian and they all looked so handsome.

I loved some of the personal touches Liz added to her wedding. When we all entered the ceremony the woman were handed a rose from the ushers. And what woman doesn't enjoy receiving a flower? The table centerpieces were tulips and to go along with the theme, each guest was given tulip bulbs to take home. And on each table was an envelope labeled with an anniversary, for example, on our table we had 11 years. Inside the envelope were blank index cards to be filled out with advice for that year of marriage by each person at the table.

The night ended of course by everyone having a blast on the dance floor. And Liz and Andrew were literally glowing all night. You could tell they were so in love and having a blast on their wedding day. And all of the Amelishan crew had a blast too, the day couldn't have been more fun!

Chicago Bridal Market - We Are Inspired!

We love shopping at all of the bridal markets. We always come home completely inspired and ready to move into the next year bringing you style and everything wonderful! It's quite a job when we go, not only are we shopping for 4 full days. We have to widdle down our purchases to bring our customers the best of the best. All the shopaholics out there don't know a thing about shopping until they go to a clothing market! :)

That said we love it! When I step off the elevators at the Chicago Bridal Mart and smell all the new products my stomach starts bubbling with excitement! And we cannot wait to bring you the hottest styles for 2011! Everything is simplified and feminine. Bridal gowns are all about the lines of the body and how they shape to a woman's curves. And clothes right now are all about accenting our curves, no matter if they're big or small! If bridal gowns do have some sparkle it is subtle like in a sash or belt and on the bodice. And it's all about personalization, like adding a unique sash or antique brooch to make it a one of a kind creation!

Bridesmaids are as hot and wearable as they have ever been and we are sighing a relief for that! The hot colors right now are black, teal, and coral. No girl will say no to being a bridesmaids after she sees what 2011 has in store for her! Short, long, and layered and very flattering to any body type. Brides beware, you're girls might look as hot as you do!

And our favorite category. Accessories! Wait until you see the new shoes, combs, and jewelry we have for you! Everyone knows about a woman's obsession with shoes right? Well imagine 4 women at market trying to narrow their shoe choices down to their very favorites. It's near impossible so instead we are bringing you any amazing amount of new trendy wear again shoes that you won't be able to resist (because we couldn't)! And Brides will have more than enough choices of beautiful accessories to finish off her look too!
