Blue Sky Bridal
311 N. 77th St.

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” was popularized in England during the late 1800s, but it’s still applicable for modern brides. Style icon Coco Chanel stated that “elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress” – it can be found in the “old” and “borrowed” as well as in the “new” and “blue.” Consignment shop Blue Sky Bridal, which was founded in 2007, offers an unparalleled selection of second-hand dresses for brides on a budget. Blue Sky has helped countless eco-friendly, budget-conscious brides find the gown that symbolizes their special day and the beginning of a lifetime of happiness.
