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.
