It’s no secret that we are head over heels for bridal fashion here at SMP. Give us a room full of beautiful gowns, gorgeous veils and seriously stunning accessories and you’ll see one group of very happy ladies. So when we realized that we’d be spending our Saturday with the ever-awesome Bella Bianca Bridal Couture, we threw a little virtual dance party. Because Bella Bianca Bridal Couture isn’t just any bridal shop… it’s a luxurious (+ amazing) experience for all of you lovely Illinois brides-to-be.
Sisters Melissa Russell and Natalie Bauer founded Bella Bianca almost five years ago with the goal of giving Chicagoland brides a fresh new option in couture bridal. After being brides themselves, Melissa and Natalie were inspired to create a boutique where brides could feel that their experience matched up to the caliber of gown they were selecting. While the business has grown to include a 2nd location in the Gold Coast fashion district of Chicago (just opened in January of 2013), the focus on customer service has remained top-notch.
Bella Bianca proudly carries some of the biggest names in bridal. Between the two salons they carry Alvina Valenta, Hayley Paige, Ines Di Santo, Judd Waddell, Junko Yoskioka, Lazaro, Rivini, San Patrick, Simone Carvalli, Sottero and Midgley, Tara Keely, and Victor Harper. They also host trunk shows almost every weekend of the year, often times with the designer attending.
As you can see by the salon’s reviews, brides appreciate the experience they receive, including everything from the extensive gown collection and welcoming showrooms to othe expert stylists and commitment to service. Bella Bianca carries a diverse collection which gives brides the opportunity to explore not only a multitude of different styles, but also in price point. Bridal collection ranges from $2,000 to $12,000 in Oakbrook and $3,000 and up in Chicago.
Bella Bianca has been featured on various programs such as TLC’s “Randy to the Rescue” and “Platinum Weddings”.
