If you thought brides who wear black are challenging convention, think again. Chicago sports-themed wedding dresses are a real thing: Whether you're a Sox fan or a Bears girl, you can declare your love for your team while taking that walk down the aisle.
David Gaffke, owner of Complete Bridal Salon, has designed several dresses that pay homage to local sports teams. These dresses are exactly what they sound like: Traditional bridal silhouettes with large sports team logos printed over the bodice. We think they could be a fun gag gift for a girl who is marrying a player or maybe even just an overzealous fan, but for the big day, perhaps it's better to stick to the classics?
