Honey Bridal Grand Opening

Honey Bee Weddings was delighted to attend the grand opening of Honey Bridal, the new sister store to Milk Handmade. The event showcased many of the beautiful dresses that were curated and selected by owners Dana Borden Karlov and Hallie Borden



The salon's petite size means that each bride gets the store to herself when an appointment is made. Every dress in the salon was created by an independent designer! The designers include Tara LaTour, & FOR LOVE, and Tatyana Merenyuk



The talented bakers at Sugar Hills Bakery created a lavender-themed dessert bar that went perfectly with the cool color tones of the room. 



Guests sampled cocktails and desserts while treating themselves to the braid and makeup bars located in the salon fitting rooms. Everyone commemorated the occasion with pictures from the open air photo booth provided by Fotio



This event was so much fun to attend. We wish this fun, new salon the best of luck!

Men's Wedding Trends

When looking for men's rental attire, it can be a struggle to find a high-quality tuxedo that fits well and is in budget. Luckily, designer suit rental service The Black Tux has arrived and is a great way to find modern suits at affordable prices! 

The Black Tux has suits and tuxedos that fit the most current wedding colors and trends. Here are two of our favorite looks.

Color Trend 2017: Neutrals and MetalsWe love the idea of mixed metallic wedding palette especially with cool gray paired with gold and rose gold.  For the groom and male attendants, I really adore a heather gray suit. 




Color Trend 2017: Blue and Blush
For the fourth year in a row, blush remains on trend. For a unique way to complement this pale color, try a tuxedo in a deep inky blue or navy. The two colors play off of each other beautifully and will help to create a wedding that will stand out from a sea of blush.

Caitlin + Adam

It is such an honor to be asked to be from someone who is in the wedding and events industry.  Caitlin is a wedding photographer that used to be an event planner!  I was thrilled to be apart of her wedding to Adam.  Her eye for design and detail is impeccable.

On a sunny July day, Caitlin and Adam tied the knot at a beautiful Catholic wedding but not before the Veil Incident.  As Caitlin and Adam were having their first look on a rooftop, Caitlin's veil blew off and landed on a neighboring rooftop.  The building security would not be persuaded by charm or dollars.  Luckily, the bridal salon had the same veil in stock and delivered the back up to the church.

Once the newlyweds had officially tied the knot, they joined guests at their whimsical reception and enjoyed a fun night with their loved ones. 






Caitlin and Adam are a beautiful couple and so wonderful to work with. I was honored to be asked to help make their special day everything they'd dreamed it would be.

Rebecca + Adam's Modern Wing Reception

I always love that my career let's me be an integral part of a couple's wedding day. However, some weddings are closer to me than others. When the wedding is one of your coordinators, it really feels special. 

Rebecca and Adam were married at St. James Chapel and hosted their reception in the Griffin Court at the Art Institute Chicago. Rebecca wanted a classic bride look ala Grace Kelly with long sleeves and lace but the station style wedding was completely modern.  Rebecca has been with Honey Bee Weddings for four years and used great cast of vendors. The color palette was white, gold and black-- the bricks of gold on the bar were divine.  


Ceremony: St. James Chapel
DJ: Fig Media
Decor: Kehoe Designs
Linens: BBJ Linens
Chairs: Tablescapes
Hair and Make-up: Sonia Roselli
Photographer: Dennis Lee Photography
Photobooth: Smilebooth








































 After the beautiful ceremony at St. James Chapel, everyone headed to The Art Institute of Chicago for the somehow even more beautiful reception.
