After five extraordinary years, whiteCHICAGO, Chicago’s pioneer of the once-wed movement, is closing its doors on August 28th?but not without a bang! Kicking off on Thursday, August 25th from 6-9pm, brides are invited for a “sneak peek” of the entire inventory at the VIP Preview Party, followed by the two-day Bridal Blow-Out Sale on Saturday, August 27th & Sunday August 28th. From Vera Wang to Monique Lhuillier, amazing, one-of-a-kind designer gowns will be available at incredible prices, really, like starting at $300 (90% in many cases).
The cost to enter the sale is $15 per bride, $5 additional guest of which a portion will be donated to Brides Against Breast Cancer. Oh, plus there's drinks, drinks and appetizers from Chicago-based bridal vendors. Tickets are available by email. Get 'em here.
With two additions to the white family (co-owners Stacy Senechalle and Ursula Guyer both recently had babies) and another one on the way (Stacy is due this October!) (fingers crossed its a boy), they are sadly but happily pursuing new loves. The white story is ending for now but don’t count them out of the “market” just yet as they probably won’t be “honeymooning” for too long!
