Magical Monday - Simply Golden
Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!~ I was able to attend a wonderful bridal show by Bridal Expo Chicago at Georgios of Orland Park. The Bridal Show Chicago hosted 66 vendors, 311 brides and well over 800 total guests. It was great to see some of my very own trusted vendor professionals and also make new connections. The FASHION SHOW was beyond amazing and included a total of seven (7) scenes. As a spectator, I was able to view gowns and bridal party attire from some of the top designers in this industry ~ James Clifford, Lezu Atelier, Rina di Montella, Stephen Yearick and YSA Makino just to name a few. From the top trends in Bridal Silhouettes to the Worlds Best Designers Showcase, every bride I had the pleasure of speaking with (not all 311..lol) was very pleased with the Top 2010 Collection provided by ten local bridal salons; not to mention the splendid eye candy sporting classic tuxedos by Black Tie Formal wear and JP Tuxedo Warehouse. Overall, it was AWESOME!! Special Thanks to the Bridal Expo Chicago staff (Carol, Bill and Paula) for their hard work, excellent customer service.

Let's talk color....so many colors, so little time! Simply Perfect Peace Events & Designs by Shay knows that even after attending a bridal show not every bride has a color palette in mind for her wedding ... if you are a bride who would rather spend time choosing the perfect photographer, florist, or invitations than trying to figure out what colors to use, we have a great answer for you! How about a classy, yet downplayed canvas of ivory and gold?
You're probably asking yourself~what's great about this combo? Well for starters, it isn't hard to find the items on your wedding related list that come in these colors ... which will save you a ton of time running all over town with a color swatch in your hand! Chiavari chairs look amazing in gold and most come complete with an ivory chair cushion that you can choose to cover if you prefer. Now, if later down the road, you decide that you love lavender roses or something else, you can add them to the ivory and gold backdrop and nothing is lost!
Also, consider renting beautiful table top pieces with gold details and really make your guests feel like they are dining with royalty! You can even rent gold flatware to match. Either way, ivory and gold is a great place to start if the idea of coming up with a color scheme is too overwhelming after saying "yes" to the man of your dreams and months worth of wedding planning.
