Maggie Sottero Pop Up Event
A couple of weekends ago, I had the absolute pleasure of co-hosting the Maggie Sottero Pop Up event at The Lakewood in Chicago with Maggie Sottero, The Crystal Bride Geneva, and Bel Aire Bridal! There were over 100 dresses at the event and the Maggie Sottero and Crystal Bride team were there to help all the brides pick out their perfect dress. Oh, and did I mention Maggie Sottero casually brought several of their never before seen Fall 2018 wedding gowns?! YEAH, they went there. Once you found your dream dress, Bel Aire Bridal was there to finish the look off with the perfect accessories. It was such a dream day! Everything that your bridal appointment should be.
I had the most incredible experience shopping with the Maggie and Crystal Bride team. It was a very relaxed environment and no one ever pushed me in one direction or another, which can be very frustrating and confusing for a bride! I was able to tell the attendants what I was looking for and they put me in exactly what I had envisioned. I ended up finding the dress of my dreams that day, and I can hardly wait to walk down the aisle in it on our wedding day. P.S. The dress I chose is not in any of these photos. 😉
So lets chat a little more about the brand new Fall 2018 Maggie Sottero Collection. You can find the new Lucienne collection here. If you’re looking for something romantic with a touch of vintage flair, you’re going to be so obsessed! My feelings won’t even be hurt if you ditch the rest of my blog post to check it out. The pictures don’t even do them justice, it was just magical to get to try on these dresses at the event. The designers pay such amazing attention to detail, and there was no detail left behind on any gown. I was so amazed. I even got to chat with one of the designers and he was just so sweet and helpful! I think it’s very hard to achieve that classy bridal look, while still keeping up with the trends, but they achieve just that!
Several of you reached out to me and told me how you were so disappointed you weren’t able to make it to the event, but you’re in luck! The Crystal Bride took over 20 of the new Fall 2018 collection gowns back to their bridal salon in Geneva, IL and you can use the link below to request an appointment so you can go try them on through May 8th! It gets better, though. You will also be able to take advantage of the special discount from the event if you have your bridal appointment by May 8th.
If you’re a bride reading this, I hope this has given you some major wedding dress inspo! I never truly understood what your “say yes to the dress” moment really felt like until this day. It’s so special! If anyone wants to gush over the new Fall 2018 collection, you know where to find me. 😉
