    Can any chicago brides recommend bridal shops in the area?
    As some may know, I am in Chicago for work for the next 5 or 6 weeks so I need to do my dress shopping while I am here.
    I went to david's bridal this weekend and found 1 possibility, but I feel like I should see some more. I didn't have a "wow" moment with the dress but it fit almost perfectly off the rack. I would be totally happy with that dress but I need to quiet the nagging little voice in my head that it shouldn't be that easy, I shouldn't like the FIRST dress I try on. haha.

      Hi.. Welcome to the windy.. and strangley warm Chi-town!!
      I'd highly reccommend Volle's in Lake Zurich.. great place..
      I live in the city and still decided to go there to buy. Me, my sister, and a number of our friends bought our wedding gowns there and they have a great selection of varying price ranges and designers. Plus they're not pushy!! Nothing but great experiences on my end.

        Francia in Hinsdale 630.325.4100 is where I bought mine. Francia Bridal

        YOu can also schedule an appointment at macy's or one of the other department stores.

        There is a place that is pretty expensive (for me), but if you can afford it, there are beautiful dresses. Vegas to Venice Untitled Document

            I actually found my dress at Macy's. The sales assistant there was fantastic! All I told her was the location of my wedding and that I wanted something light. I tried on about 7 dresses and all of them were exactly what I was looking for. It was a great experience. I also went to Nicole Miller on Wells. They have great stuff for destination weddings, and the prices are much lower. I also had an appointment at White Chicago which I have heard great things about. I ended up cancelling because I knew I wanted one of the dresses from Macy's. Hope this helps!Click the image to open in full size.

              I have heard good things about White Chicago as well, but haven't made an appointment (maybe if Volle's doesn't work out). I will check out Nicole Miller. I didn't realize there was a store here and I like some of those dresses. I was worried Macy's was above my price range. what were the prices like?

                I've been to White - it's a great place to check out, and you can take pics. I bought my dress at Belle Vie in Chicago.

                  White Chicago sells "once wed" or sample dresses, and their inventory changes pretty often. the girl there, Ursula (sp?) i think, was very nice. i didn't find anything there that worked for me, but i was hoping i did ... i didn't mind having a dress that was worn before if i could save some $$
