We had such a blast getting to shoot our fabby About Us video! It was an amazing day of working with some of our favorite vendors to create this video which we could not be more OBSESSED with!! We truly had as much fun making it as it looks like we did!

A special thank you to I Do Films and Studio This Is for capturing the day!

Destination Wedding: Guest Style

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Katie and Jesse are currently down in the sunny Caribbean putting together all the fabulous details for one of our lucky couples' wedding weekend including a welcome party, ceremony/reception and day after brunch- (we promise to share all the amazing photos from this event just as soon as we have them!).  In honor of this destination wedding in Anguilla at the gorgeous Viceroy Resort, we thought it would be fun to put together a little outfit inspiration for the travelling wedding guest

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Things are busy busy busy around the Bliss Studio today as we prepare for two fabulous weddings this Memorial Day weekend!  We hope you all have some fabulous plans on your social agenda- maybe even a weekend long getaway that starts promptly this afternoon!  

While the Chicago weather this weekend is really not living up to our agreement to be gorgeous, sunny and a perfect 80 degrees, we aren't going to let the weather ruin our fun!  Rather than putting back your picnic supplies, why not plan a fabulous indoor picnic?!?!

Valentine's Gift Guide for the last minute shoppers

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Today we have a little gift guide for all the last minute guys out there.  Of course we know most of you have purchased a fabulous gift for the belle in your life far in advance, but just in case this holiday slipped by you this year this gift guide has some wonderful options you can scoop up on way home!  

1.  Roses candle from Diptyque on North Damon

2. Delicious macarons from Vanille Patisserie

3. grab a Bottle of Moet that you can write a custom love note on from Binny's

4. Forget about a boring bouquet of roses- swing by Fleur for a chic Valentine's arrangement

5/6/7  You may think your lady's closet is full enough, but trust us when we say one more dress in a festive valentine's color

isn't going to hurt! Pick up any one of these beauties from Neiman Marus- five, six & seven.

If you are reading this post after Valentine's day and you forgot the holiday completely then you will probably need to purchase one of everything!

Bliss Holiday Cheer

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It's no secret that we love our cocktails around here!! So we thought it would be fun to spread some holiday cheer this year with some fabulous custom cocktail coasters along with a sparkly holiday card.  As soon as we saw this glittery design from Minted, we knew it had to have been made with Bliss Weddings & Events in mind (plus it just works so perfectly with our new ad photo!) After thinking about our favorite seasonal cocktails, we decided to get coasters made by For Your Party with recipes for a classic Manhattan, Hot Toddy, Kir Royale and our personal favorite- The Bliss Fizz!   We are just so in love with these fun holiday treats that we just had to share them with you here:

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Now that we have decadently dined ourselves through Thanksgiving and given our credit cards a nice little

 Here is a little black tie appropriate holiday party inspiration to get you in the spirit!

 

 

 

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="6511" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]

1. Issa Jadeite dress- the color of this dress is picture perfect for the holidays and the simple silhouette is to die for!

2. We love the vintage yet glamorous feel of these Lulu Frost for J. Crew earrings.

3. This chic little Christian Louboutin purse was made to be taken to a holiday party- it's even tied with a luxe velet bow on top!

4. We are swooning over these modern Nicholas Kirkwood gold bow slingbacks.
