About Mignonette Bridal: Mignonette is a unique one-stop shop for anyone who wants to have a romantic wedding.  Set in the heart of Chicago’s bustling Lakeview neighborhood, Mignonette is a calming oasis in the whirlwind of wedding planning. The tiny jewel box of a shop offers brides undivided attention and genuine, no-pressure advice on everything from style and fit to accessories.   Filled to the brim with locally made, vintage-inspired treasures, Mignonette invites you to stay awhile and dream about your big day. Exposed brick, cream-and-turquoise walls lined with gold grosgrain trim, and a fireplace in the dressing room all help to make this former antique shop the perfect place to find everything you will need for a day that is uniquely yours. Mignonette is proud to be the only Midwest showroom for Alyssa Kristin Bridal, ReDefined Designs, and Due Sorelle. Brides can browse gown samples from our carefully-chosen designers, make an appointment to have owner Kpoene’ Kofi-Nicklin custom-design a Mignonette gown just for you, or check out the collection of veils, headpieces, and wedding sashes.  Mignonette also specializes in alterations, styling, and vendor recommendations.
