Ask Ali: When Should I Purchase My Wedding Shoes?

Ali, When should I be selecting and purchasing my wedding shoes? Can you give me any tips? (From Ashley)

That is a great question. It is a good idea to have selected your wedding shoes prior to your first fitting of your wedding dress which will typically happen two to three months before your wedding. Start looking for your wedding shoes about four to six months in advance of your wedding.

Small Business Saturday-Shop Locally in Chicago

American Express started a movement called Small Business Saturday for this Saturday, November 27th. To encourage people to shop small businesses they ask everyone to shop at your local small businesses on Saturday. I myself will be heading out for some treats from some local Chicago vendors. Below are my favorites that I wanted to share with you. Many of these shops will offer some great options for your Chicago wedding.
