Wedding vendor spotlight: The Bridal Boutique of Naperville

We had the pleasure of asking Bonnie Wegner, owner and managing partner of the Bridal Boutique of Naperville, a few questions about her business. The company has been in business for nine years. Check out the Bridal Boutique featured on Bouquet Catcher here.

Q: How long have you been in the wedding industry? What sparked your interest in doing what you’re doing now?

I have been in the business 9 years.  Starting this shop was my first experience with bridal.  I have always been a bridal junkie and wanted to provide beautiful, affordable gowns for every budget and time frame.

Q: What makes the Bridal Boutique of Naperville unique and different from other bridal salons? 

The Bridal Boutique is a sample shop.  We carry over 400 gowns in stock and at a discount. My brides walk out with their dress the same day. Soon, we will also be getting an in-house designer line that is made in the USA. The order time is cut in half and the sizing will be more realistic. These gowns will only be available at our shop.

Aaron Craft of Golden State Warriors basketball team marries girlfriend

Aaron Craft, professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors, married his girlfriend, Amber Petersen, Aug. 16 in Findlay, Ohio. The couple have been together since 8th grade, according to Busted Coverage. Aaron and Amber both attended Ohio State University where they majored in nutrition. According to pictures from the wedding, it seems that Aaron put just as much heart and passion into his wedding as he does on the basketball court, as he somehow ended up on the floor.

Sophia Williams, originally from Houston, married Todd Mikelionis from Johnsburg April 11 at Yorkfield Prebysterian Church in Elmhurst with a reception at Pinstripes in Oak Brook.

We asked the Chicago couple to answer some newlywed questions, and answers are below:

Q: How did you meet?

Todd: One December night, Todd joined his friends in downtown Chicago for a Christmas party in their building, the same building where Sophia lived. Being the only four people at the party under the age of 70, all of us socialized, all night.

Three months later, Todd and Sophia started dating, sharing their love for Jesus Christ which rapidly grew their love for each other —truly a match made in heaven.

Q: What’s the best piece of advice you can give to people planning a wedding?

Sophia: Focus on the details of the day, but don’t get tangled in them. At the end of  it all, the marriage is most important. Focus on starting your life together and maintaining your connection, not what shade of peach looks better in photos.

It’s not uncommon for guests to let loose during the wedding reception, especially after a few glasses (or bottles) of wine are involved. What’s less common, however, is becoming internet famous for your drunken rendition of “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes at the celebration. Sarah Lane, a 26-year-old council worker, recently became Insta-famous after actress Michelle Rodriguez shared a candid video on Instagram of her singing at a friend’s wedding. The video now has over 8,000 views and Sarah has received job offers for her singing. What’s social media for if not sharing embarrassing clips of friends at the push of button? Here’s the video straight from Michelle’s Instagram:
