Loved this place. I am a low-maintenance bride who was referred here by one of my friends, but I could have just as easily been a diva and been just as happy. I wanted quality and needed help as I am not a big dress person. I had no idea what kind of dress I wanted when I got there. 30 minutes later, I had my dress and a veil. I tried on 6, the second one was it, the 3rd one could have been it and the others I tried on just to be sure. Each of my dresses was chosen for me based on the previous dress I tried on and feedback from me by my personal stylist they assigned, Rose. She was fantastic. Don't delay, it took 6 months for my dress to come in. I started looking early enough to avoid any rush fees. They are very professional and very personalized. If you are looking for quality and professionalism, this is the place to go- so much better than the big box wedding stores. You pay for what you get- I felt this place was very reasonably priced for the quality and customer service I received. My budget was around 2000 and that's about what I spent for my Waters dress- Rose was very conscious of my price range when choosing gowns for me so I didn't fall in love with something too expensive or trying on quality that wasn't what I was looking for.

Wonderful to work with! I was set on a Watters dress and found it here at a trunk show! The alterations were less expensive than I was initially quoted and I was able to store my dress up until the wedding!

Great selection and Carin really took the time to understand the type of wedding dress I wanted, as well as providing options I may not have thought of. The dress came in on time and was the correct fit. An overall great experience.

A L'Amour was one of the last stops I was holding out hope for. I just hadn't found the perfect dress yet at any of the other shops. I worked with Carmen who is just FANTASTIC. She looked at the pictures I brought in and then found dresses to try and match them. None of the dresses I tried on were the right one. Then Carmen said to me, I think I have the perfect dress for you -- but it may take me awhile to find it. Will you wait? Of course! After 20 minutes, Carmen returned with the dress of my dreams. It was a dress that was in the back of the store, stored in their clearance section, a dress that no one had tried on in 2 years. It was perfectly preserved. A pronovias sample! I fell in LOVE immediately. I cannot thank Carmen enough for her help and her willingness to go searching for me for the perfect dress. Thank you Carmen!

I knew the dress I wanted for my big day. I chose A L'Amour because they carried the specific designer and dress I wanted. On my first visit I was partnered up with a very sweet associate named Susan. I purchased my dress through her and all was seamless...until my next visit to look over my dress after it was received. I was told Susan was no longer there and was assigned a different associate for every one of my appointments there on out - no consistency. I didn't encounter one associate that seemed to care she was working with brides and the importance of details each bride had. I over-heard several brides express disgust and frustration during my appointments. It only got worse when my bridesmaids ordered their dress and I was the one following up with the store numerous times, going as far to speak with the owner, to find out when their dresses would be delivered. No one bothered to inform me or my bridal party that their dresses were being delivered from China which could cause a hold up in customs. So glad my interaction with this circus group is over. A L'Amour has some nice dresses but don't expect the basics in customer service.

My dress was stunning and perfect! It truly made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world on my wedding day. They have a pretty solid selections of dresses- so you're most likely bound to find whatever you are looking A L'Amour is not the greatest experience I've had but not the worst either. They could upgrade their facility and their staff could be more organized and definitely more friendlier, but they did help me find the dress for me. They have a great selection of dresses and a great selection of bridesmaids dresses as well. I got my bridesmaids dresses from them and I really loved them. If you're practical, not looking for the fairy tale experience but looking for the best price for an amazing gown this IS the place.

I went to several other stores before finally coming to A L'amour. The other stores I went to were pushy and didn't show me the designers and styles that I had wanted to see; they instead tried to push certain designers on me just because that designer was there for a trunk show or something.

A L'amour immediately showed me exactly what I wanted (the Pronovias Fauna) and even brought out some other dresses, just so I could compare and be sure I had the perfect dress. The dress arrived in good time, even though they had to send it back after it arrived the first time because it didn't meet their initial inspection (they must really inspect these dresses well to make sure it's perfect before they give it to you). I also bought all my jewelry and shoes from them. They had a good selection and relatively decent prices.

Can't say I have any complaints about them!

I felt I was in good hands while selecting my reception dress at A L'Amour. The staff definitely pays great attention to details and knows what they are doing. I could not be happier with my purchase! I knew ahead of time what my choice 3 dresses were but with their marvelous suggestions, I ended up with a completely different look!

I looked several places for my bridal gown, but purchased from A L'Amour in Barrington. I didnt have a traditional gown because this was my second wedding. The sales person I worked with at A L'Amour was the best I had encountered in all of my bridal shopping experiences. She was genuine and helpful, even though I wasn't purchasing bridesmaids, etc. The gown arrived in a timely manner, was perfect, and there were no surprises!

I purchased my wedding gown and a flower girl gown from Alamour Bridal in Barrington. Although the staff acted a bit pretentious, they had a beautiful selection and fair prices. I had a more informal wedding, so I purchased a Vera Wang bridesmaid gown for myself. Everything arrived on time and as ordered. The store did not have a lot of curb appeal, however, for the designer gown price tags and their target clientele.

My experience at A L'Amour was like a roller coaster. I found the dress with the help of my bridal expert .... but never saw her again. And had to deal with the fact that she measured me incorrectly. Check those measurements ladies, I was in such a daze I didn't look it over, trusting the employee knew what she was doing. She didn't.

I liked the fact that the fittings were scheduled well in advance of my wedding date, but had to deal with a NIGHTMARE of a woman who did the alterations. However, this lady knocked the alterations out of the park, she knew what she was doing. She was just horribly unprofessional. Literally a terror.

Lastly when I picked my dress up an employee stated she would be sad to not see me anymore, but then brought out a flower girl dress that wasn't for my wedding at all (I was there to pick up the wedding dress for pete's sake).

But the alterations were spot on, it was steamed to perfection, the look was flawless really. So my experience could have been 10 times worse, I just wish the people working there hadn't been so unprofessional.
