THE WHITE DRESS
A gorgeous new bridal boutique is open in Lake Forest to assist those starting their journey from Miss to Mrs. When Christina Wegner was a little girl, her grandmother offered a critical piece of advice that would ultimately shape her life in every facet: Never Settle. And settle she has not! Throughout an incredibly successful career in property management spanning over 25 years, Wegner observed an ever-increasing attraction to the “big city” lifestyle. In late 2014, she was inspired to lease her own not-so-little piece of property in an up-and-coming suburb of Milwaukee. She vowed to never settle on making her small business, WHITE DRESS BRIDAL BOUTIQUE, a big city dream come true for brides everywhere. The difference, she says, is in the amenities and the selection. “When girls dream of the bridal scene in New York and Paris they envision luxury, individualized service, and exclusive access to designer inventory. I’m bringing that to communities in the Midwest and marrying it with a friendly, know-your-neighbor, laid-back vibe.” Wegner is excited for this next chapter—a homecoming to Chicago’s North Shore in Lake Forest where she and her team offer brides that same White Dress experience—details perfected and delivered with love.

A GENTLEMAN IN WILMETTE
A Gentleman in Moscow author AMOR TOWLES visits Wilmette as part of the Wilmette Public Library’s 13th annual community reading and book discussion program—One Book, Everybody Reads. Take a journey to twentieth century Russia with Towles as he discusses his novel on April 22, at Wilmette Junior High School at 3:00pm. Charming, delightful, and full of humor, the novel recounts the story of Count Alexander Rostov, an aristocrat who is sentenced in 1922 to house arrest. Rostov is a refined and gracious man of deep intellect and quick wit, who maintains a spirit of true optimism even when the post-revolutionary world around him is filled with tumult and upheaval.
