Real Brides


Gretta

Gretta finally found her dream dress at our store after searching all over Chicago. She customized her Rara Avis Mina gown by adding a panel of lining to the front, custom cup adjustments and also ordering it in Milk white. Everything came together with her customized fringe veil for a unique look perfect for her big day.

Lauren

Lauren came to us with a vision that she wanted made entirely from scratch. The embroidery on her gown is not fabric it is couture engineered embroidery made entirely by hand, each bead and pearl was hand strung for the ultimate luxe look.

Cristina

Cristina knew exactly what she wanted but couldn’t find it at just any store. She came in with a photo and we made her dreams come to life! Her corset was custom made to her specific measurements and all of the tulle draping was done by hand on her! We love working with brides like Cristina because she is willing to be bold and chic for her wedding. Her veil is was also ordered through us, “Marie” by Toni Federici.

Kristen

Kristen found her dream dress during a trunk show we hosted for one of our newest designers Sophie Et Voila. She chose a chic gown with their classic over sized knot bow at the bust. During our fittings together she decided to have the gown shortened so that her shoes could show and because it fit her personality, we think it was a great choice <3

Shannon

Shannon came to us with her chic Rick Owns column gown and at first wanted a custom veil made. Throughout the process she decided that because she wanted a high ponytail that maybe a cape would work better, and it did!

Victoria

Victoria decided she wanted a transitional gown, one that was full and flow-y for the main event and then narrow and flirty for the reception! Her top was made of French Chantilly lace with hand sewn Swarovski crystals that grew in size from small near her shoulders to larger near her waist. Victoria was part of the entire process and decided on every last detail.
