Wedding Dress Fashion Show Finds

Buying season is here, which means more gorgeous dresses in our store! Our lovely owner, Cathy Butler is in Chicago at the Merchandise Mart for the Chicago bridal show today to look at new collections by Maggie Sottero and Sottero Midgley.

We love bridal shows because they inspire us to make changes to better assist our brides. We get ideas about styling our brides from the dress to the veil and belts. There are some new trends that are SO hot right now. Some of the trends that we are seeing in Chicago are: sleeves, straps, low backs, soft silhouettes, and lace patterns.

The dresses we are seeing at the bridal show are beyond beautiful! We do have some sneak peaks of some of our favorites! Take a look!

So these two gowns both have that lace overlay look and sweetheart necklines. It is all about the fit and romantic details.


This vintage style gown is screaming boho vibes! Long sleeve gowns are still popular and we are obsessed with the trumpet sleeves. Pair this gown with a flower crown and you are set!

It looks like satin is coming back from what we have seen in this show. This dress is fitted with an old Hollywood vibe. Audrey Hepburn would be obsessed!!


This dress is for every bride that wants to look like Cinderella! I mean that train is stunning! Ball gowns are def coming back and we are completely okay with it.

It was a successful day at the Chicago bridal show and we can’t wait for you ladies to see what we purchased for our store! Stay tuned for another Maggie Soterro and Soterro Midgley piece next Monday…
