Field Trip! BHLDN Boutique in Chicago

On a recent trip to Chicago I had the opportunity to visit one of our favorite bridal stores and sources of inspiration – BHLDN, Anthropologie’s bridal store.  This is only one of two storefronts for BHLDN.  From dresses, to shoes, to invitations BHLDN had a lovely collection of stylish and unique pieces to customize your wedding day.  As with all things Anthropologie, the overall sense of design including store displays and visual merchandising was incredible.  Check out the pictures below to see some of the goodies that I found.


The storefront display replete with paper flowers.

Dozens of unique headpieces and veils as well as vintage inspired belts to add a special touch to a bridal gown.

Of course all the lovely dresses!  I loved the use of reclaimed wood doors as a backdrop for the bridal salon section of the store.

I absolutely loved the structural lace and beaded backing to this dress!  Besides bridal dresses and accessories BHLDN also carries paper products and other reception accessories such as cake toppers, invitations, table numbers, and ceremony backdrops.
