Kelly and Susan are probably the best two people on this planet! They make you feel special and beautiful. I was probably annoying (I went back to try on the same 3 dresses 5 different times), but they didn’t seem to care in the least! I found my dream dress here (it was a Cara Fina) and had it altered so it was almost a one-of-a-kind! I have not seen a dress I would have rather worn. I felt beautiful in the store, I felt beautiful at the seamstress (if you are near Shiller Park, check out Mary Catomy… she’s amazing), and I felt special and beautiful on my wedding day thanks to this dress, and the work and effort Kelly and Susan put into finding me the right dress. The shop is small and appointment only, but Kelly and Susan make the trip to this store worth it. I hope one day to bring my daughter here for her wedding dress… it was THAT special! I wish I could give it 6 stars!
Found my perfect destination wedding dress here and Kelly is amazing very patient and a joy to work with!!! I was recommended this place by one of my friends who found her destination wedding dress here. The 2nd dress I put on was “the one”.
Susan and Kelly,
I can’t thank you enough for your expertise and caring ways helping my daughter Susan find her dream dress. We can’t wait for its arrival. I’m sure Susan’s tears were enough to validate just how good you are!
Again, many thanks,
I hope all is well with you. It feels as if I haven’t seen or talked to you in forever! I really do miss seeing you now that the wedding is all over. I would really like to stop by and check out the store some day, since I never got to do that. Please let me know if you’re not busy, I’d love to come see you and catch up.
Attached are a few pictures from the wedding, so you could see the dress as a finished product! This dress was a total hit!!! I got so many compliments on it and continue to to this day. It felt so great and it was the perfect counterpart to a truly glamorous Las Vegas wedding. As I’ve told you many times before, thank you so much for helping me pick this amazing dress!!! I honestly don’t know what I would have done without you.
I recently hired a girl to work in my office and she is getting married in October. I’ve given her all your info in hopes of her becoming a client. I told her over and over again that you are the absolute best and she needs to trust my advice on this! I hope she gets in touch with you in the next week or so.
Again, let me know if you have some free time coming up. I really want to see the store and you too, of course. Hope all is well with you and Joe and that I get to see you soon!!!
