Fall Wedding Inspiration

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Well its officially Fall as of a few days ago! Pumpkin spice lattes are waking us up every morning, we have been shopping for new boots and pulling out our cozy sweaters from storage (and we have of course been sipping on fall-inspired cocktails!). While we just adore a gorgeous summer day wedding filled with sunshine, there is something special in the air with a fall wedding on a crisp autumn day. Here's some of our favorite fall wedding images currently inspiring us: [/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7130" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]{gorgeous photos surrounded by the changing leaves}[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7131" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]{a lush fall inspired bridal bouquet}[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7132" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]{harvest inspired centerpieces of magnolia leaf, pomegranates, garden roses & hibernicum berry}[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7133" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]{a tasty muddling bar to warm guests up from our inspiration shoot featured on Style Me Pretty right here}[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7134" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_single_image image="7135" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]{a cake adorned in a rich fall color palette}[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Our Favorite Cake Servers

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Here at Bliss we just love to swoon over even the smallest of wedding details (after all sometimes they can be the most fun to shop for!).  Don't let the serving set you use to cut the cake on your wedding day be an after thought especially since it is usually placed front and center in the photos of your cake!  Here is a little round up of some of favorite options:[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="6073" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]1. This little set may look simple, but if you look closer you will see that the handles are engraved with "Mr & Mrs" 2. This gorgeous Sakura serving set BHLDN would be perfect for a garden inspired wedding.

3. Add a little glitz with these gold or silver glitter servers from Leif

4. Vera Wang can do no wrong and these simple grosgrain ribbon inspired servers are a chic partner for any cake!

5. While brand new servers are fabulous- it is always fun to find a one of kind vintage set from places like Etsy or even better- an heirloom from your own families!

Cupcake Crawl: Molly's Cupcakes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We've take on the societal duty of finding the best cupcakes of Chicago. We know it won’t be an easy task, but someone’s got to do it!  

Our Cupcake Crawl begins at 2536 North Clark in Lincoln Park at Molly’s Cupcakes. The shop has a playful vibe as you walk in with swings to sit on at their bar, and a variety of games that customers play at their tables. They have plenty of unique cupcake creations like ‘The Ron Bennington’, ‘Boston Cream’, Blueberry Cheesecake’ and ‘Cake Batter’ to name a few! And for those that like to stick to what they know, Molly’s offers Classic Flavors of 'Chocolate', 'Vanilla', 'Carrot', 'Banana' and 'Red Velvet'. Once you make the hard decision of which flavor you move on to icing, 'Classic Vanilla' and 'Chocolate', 'Cream Cheese', 'Brown Butter' or 'French Buttercream'. Oy vey! Make your cupcake personal by adding whatever toppings speak to you! And as an added bonus a portion of their profits are donated to schools in the community, in honor of Molly who was a third grade teacher! After much debate, we ordered two of their Classic Flavors, a banana cupcake with classic vanilla frosting and sprinkles and a vanilla cupcake with classic chocolate and the odd choice of gummy bears (the sky’s the limit)! And what more could we ask for? Good news Chicago Brides, they vow to customize your cupcakes with whatever toppings and decorations your little heart desires!

 

Our first stop on the crawl was a huge success. We recommend you satisfy that inner cupcake craving that lives withing all of us and stop in at Molly’s Cupcake! Bon appétit![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7029" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_single_image image="7030" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Take a Sneak Peak!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We recently had a photo shoot for our new ad that will be out soon! With all the changes happening at Bliss we needed to throw Katie Kozlowski, our newest senior weddings consultant, into the mix and show everyone what we are all about! Besides, who doesn't love an afternoon of shoes, glitter, cake and champagne? We can't thank Cindy, from Fandl Photography, enough for spending the day with us photographing all our silly antics and costume changes! The delicious pink ombre cake was done by our friends at Alliance Bakery and Cafe, and was delightful until the very last piece (what swimsuit season?)! And our very own, Kara Superfine, used her fabulous floral background to create the gorgeous hot pink bouquet that we are still dying over!

Here's a sneak peak of what will be published soon in bridal magazines galore. We hope you enjoy!
