The Vintage Romantic Bride
Daisy and Gatsby Get Their Happy Ending…
Tone of The Big Day: Starring: Ralph Lauren as Father of the Bride
Where: For a wedding high on romance and a big reveal, we set our Vintage Romantic wedding in one of the many historic mansions around Chicagoland. There are so many lovely options in a city so rich in history, including: Cheney Mansion, Stan Mansion, Dewes House and Dawes Mansion.
Music: Cole Porter and Bobby Short
The Dress: Do you swoon at the idea of lace and an antique cameo broach? Lauren Bush’s wedding gown hits the right note.
The Dress Code: Black ties and beads. Pocket watches. Even a patent leather spat wouldn’t be out of place.
The Cake: The more ornate, the better. Think edible pearls, pink butter cream, and fondant roses.
Hemstitch napkins, crystal-cut glassware, chandeliers, and candelabras.
A champagne fountain erected with coupe glasses for the ladies and a Bourbon Bar for the fellas.
A 1920s Rolls Royce with Just Married in the rear window brings the evening to a close.
