BHLDN and other pretty things

Thanks to the lovely ladies who will be standing next to me on my wedding day, I had such a special day on Saturday.  I know my last post was a bit of a downer, but hey, it's the truth.  Saturday I got to experience a little wedding planning bliss though {it's not always terrible!}  We started the day trying on bridesmaids dresses and the girls making me laugh uncontrollably.  My original idea of purchasing all different cocktail dresses in complementing colors was a bust.  They either didn't fit right, the colors were off together, they weer too short, etc.  So, off to Jenny Yoo and J. Crew.  Afterwards we checked out BHLDN, Anthro's bridal boutique that just opened it's doors in Chicago.  Yes, it's exactly as amazing as you'd expect {images below}.  I ended up finding my wedding shoes here!  They have a great selection of vintage inspired jewelry, cocktail/bridesmaids dresses, off-the-beaten-path wedding gowns and decor.  Even if you're not engaged, it's worth checking out.  We spent the rest of the afternoon at lunch and shopping, of course. There may have been Sprinkles cupcakes and prosecco at Fred's - why put an end to a great day?
