Bridal Sign Up

Something Bleu

Bella Bleu

How to make lemonade out of lemons: Andrea Novak, Exhibit A. “When I got engaged, I was traveling a ton for work and couldn’t find the accessories I wanted for my wedding—none were true luxury items,” explains the owner of Bella Bleu. “I was so frustrated; I started a bridal accessory business so brides wouldn’t have the same unpleasant experience that I had.” After years as a successful e-commerce store, Novak recently opened a bricks and mortar outpost in Park Ridge as a complement to her online operation—offering Sara Gabriel veils, Margaret Rowe couture jewelry and Polly Edwards headdresses. “I have exquisite, high-end designs that people can’t get easily from New York, Australia and Europe.” By appointment only.
