Big City Bride can NOT stop smiling about the KNOT! The Knot national magazine is out on news stands now and has a "Special Chicago Guide" insert for local brides. With Chicago wedding tips and real Chicago weddings the special edition has a few Big City Bride features. Later this week we'll share our luxurious Chicago wedding and the gorgeous spread included in the Chicago wedding guide.
When The Knot asked Big City Bride, Chicago's favorite wedding planner, for a few hot tips for Chicago weddings Susan Cordogan passed along some of our favorite Chicago wedding tips and trends.
We love the idea of rethinking the expected and traditional wedding details. A creative twist on boutonnieres is a fun and economical detail to consider and one that makes it into so many photos! The Knot included a few great ideas to get your creativity flowing, but the possibilities are endless.
Here's a feature about the idea of hanging centerpieces which Big City Bride loves. Depending on your Chicago wedding venue this could be an option to replace tall wedding centerpieces, or it might not be. If you can, it adds an unexpected element to your Chicago wedding decor and frees up the view across the table so your guests can really catch up but still be surrounded by a gorgeous and atmospheric Chicago wedding reception!
"Floating Florals: The new frontier of wedding flowers? The ceiling. Work with your florist to suspend lightweight arrangements above each table at your reception for a more dramatic look than the tallest of centerpieces, Cordogan says. Bonus: hanging centerpieces never get in the way of conversations."
Also a fun note...the gorgeous photo of this tented Chicago wedding is a Big City Bride wedding! We feel honored to have the Knot feature the gorgeous events of our Big City Brides.
