"I Do! Chicago" - A walk down the aisle of time

Today I had the privilege to visit the Chicago History Museum along with other members of the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC). The Exhibit, which actually started May 22, 2010 walked us down the aisle of time featuring preserved wedding gowns from the 1800's to 2009.

The Museum's vast costume collection includes a stunning array of wedding attire—for brides, grooms, bridesmaids, and more that reveals 170 years of fashion by Chicago couples. I Do presents forty-five dresses, plus accessories, corsets and even men’s attire.  On June 24th the winning dress of the FashioNext competition was announced and if you haven't seen it - you must get there before January 3, 2011.  You wont be sorry!

Although we were unable to take any photo's inside the exhibit, the wonderful book we received as guests gives a glimpse into our experience.
