All The Details of Chicago Bridal Market.

This week I had the opportunity to travel down to Chicago for Bridal Market.  I love attending market: hanging out with bridal friends, meeting new ones and hand choosing our next season of gowns.  It's an exhausting trip, but a fun one!

It looks like we had fun, but trust me we were also working hard.  So many decisions to make, so quickly!  We're so excited for these gowns to arrive in our store!  As we're choosing gowns, we're thinking about the brides we have had the pleasure of working with and the ones to come!

We noticed three trends that we're excited to bring back to our bride tribe here in Southwestern Ontario!

1. Back details!  So many back details - halter backs, racer backs, sheer backs, keyhole backs!  This season is all about the back!  And we can't wait until we get some of these in the store!

2.  The second trend we noticed a lot of is a return to the simple chic and elegant.  It's not a secret that we've seen a lot of lace over the last few years and while we love and adore lace, we're excited to see some stunning bridal gowns in other materials make their way to the runway.


3. The last trend we saw and were excited about was non-traditional lace patterns.  These patterns are a bit more bold and modern, which we adore.  These wedding gowns make a statement all on their own and we cannot wait to get them into the store!


So tell us, which of these three trends do you LOVE the most?  

If you're still on the hunt for the perfect gown, no matter what trend you'd like to follow, we'd love to have you into Once Upon A Time Weddings.  Here's what recent bride Alex had to say about her bridal gown finding experience!
