Wedding Inspiration

Looking for a little wedding dress inspiration?  Starting Saturday May 22, the Chicago History Museum will host the exhibit of I do! Chicago Ties the Knot.

This is the first exhibition showcasing the wedding costume collection of the Chicago History Musuem.  It will show how wedding traditions have changed over time.  Each garment is from a Chicago wedding to boot!  Also shown will be examples of complete wedding ensembles from the dress to veils, shoes, and lingerie, and even bridesmaids and mother-of-the-bride dresses.  Sounds pretty neat.
