In case you missed it, we’ve got a quick recap of the Wedding Salon’s most recent event at the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile. (Also, read on for a preview of their next show coming up in November.) Earlier this month, over 450 brides and grooms attended the Wedding Salon’s Chicago event and came face-to-face with some of the best vendors in the wedding business. The InterContinental’s Grand Ballroom was transformed by Taylor & Co. for the show and couples were surely transfixed from the start.
In addition to local Chicago vendors, couples also met with destination wedding and honeymoon experts. Various hotel and wedding professionals like Atlantis Paradise Island and Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons were there, as well is representatives from such hot destinations as Aruba, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Tahiti.
Other highlights from the show included:
- Makeovers from Blink Mobile Spa
Aside from leaving with lots of inspiring ideas and helpful contacts, attendees of the Wedding Salon show also received a luxe gift bag which included items like treats from KIND Snacks, bridal magazines (like Destination I Do!) and beauty samples like Essie nail polish and a hydrating face mask from Le Mieux.
