I too, am writing for David Tutera's It's a Brides life, and sadly I did not have the same experience that Melissa, the other reviewer did. I was set up for my appointment and when I showed up on the day, the assistant had no idea that I was coming, even though I could see my name written in the schedule book. The dresses that I were shipped in for me to try on were still sitting in the box in the back, instead of being taken out of the box to "air out". Once we did find the dresses that I was going to try on, I pretty much did all the work from there by myself. The consultant barely helped me get into the dresses, but I do have to say that she did get me to try on some dresses that I probably wouldn't have chosen to try on. In the end, I did find my gown, but being a blogger, my circumstances are different and I didn't have the luxury of going to another bridal salon. If I had, I would have high tailed it out of there quickly.

I was looking for a specific David Tutera wedding dress and I could not find it anywhere in the Chicagoland area. Louise called the designer, found out it was in the truck show, shipped the dress there so I could try it on and they shipped it back to the trunk show for me at no charge. This place is more like a bridal boutique without the over priced dresses. I highly recommend this place. They do not have a huge selection but they will help you get any dress you like if you aren't happy with their selection. The tailor Violet is also VERY good. My strapless dress was the perfect fit. I would recommend this place to everyone!

Where to start, well I called a month in advance to make an appointment, and was assured that everything was set to go for when I arrived to try on dresses. I showed up the day of the appointment with my family only to find out that I had "not made and appointment". There was only one consultant there and she was running back in forth between three different brides. The woman there was very kind and did a decent job considering the circumstances. I ended up buying the first dress I tried on because I absolutely loved it, but they did not haggle at all on the price. I also decided to purchase bridesmaids dresses from their bill levkoff collection. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! they were seriously the biggest waste of money on dresses. $250 for one dress and they came in late, one was the complete wrong size, they all were rough around the edges to the point where they would only look good if they were tailored. It was awful. Oh and on top of it I had a bridesmaid drop out a month before the wedding and never picked up her dress from the store and the wouldn't refund any part of it. They wouldn't give half a quarter or even a dollar back. You would seriously be better off going to JC Penny and buying a $20 dress for your bridemaids and get the better quality. Needless to say I DO NOT RECOMMEND this shop AT ALL!

Catherine Simms Bridal saved me. I am a plus sized bride and it is very hard to find anything in sample sizes that fit me. I kept getting the same song and dance from every other bridal shop. "We can order it in your size if you like it, but we don't have a sample for you to try on." How on earth is a woman to buy a dress this important and this expensive without trying it on!?!

I walked into Catherine Simms Bridal to look at bridesmaids dresses because they had the designer that I wanted. When I came in I saw a gorgeous romantic dress that was exactly what I was looking for AND they had it in a sample size that I could try on even better the price on the dress was the right price not the oh we will have to add to it because it is a plus size.

We got both the bridesmaid and my bridal gown from them. Sandy was amazing she always had time for me even when I just wanted to stop in to try it on just to make sure I still loved it. When it came time for my fitting I had lost a lot of weight but they were able to bring it in and make it fit like a glove. It looked like it had been custom made just for me. I can't wait until my photos are ready so I can share them with Catherine Simms to show them how great it turned out! I would highly recommend Catherine Simms Bridal.

I had a wonderful experience at Catherine Simms Bridal. The staff was always so nice and helpful. I ended up purchasing both my dress and my bridesmaids dresses here. My dress was a floor sample that had been marked down so I was more than thrilled at the price. They kept my dress for me at the store and let me come in and try it on with my accessories whenever I needed to. I had my bridal alterations done here as well and couldn't be happier.

Although I love their space and they were always friendly, I would not suggest going to Catherine Simms for your bridal wear. We went there randomly to look at dresses, and I just happened to find the dress that was perfect; my bridesmaids that were with me found a dress for them as well. We ordered my dress and decided to hold off on the bridesmaid dresses. We had asked if we could have a sample of the color of the bridesmaid dresses. They told us it was no big deal and that they would mail it to us immediately. Six weeks later, nothing came in the mail. We tried calling several times but no one knew what we were talking about. We ended up going through another vendor for our bridesmaid dresses, and I wish I would have gotten my dress through there as well. They were professional enough, and my dress was perfect. I was just happy it actually came in, with the lack of communication.

Staff was rude and unprofessional here. They didn't really respect my privacy when trying dresses on. I did find the dress of my dream here though, at an amazing price. So despite the above, I ended purchasing my dressing from here. Best selection in Naperville area, but need to work on their customer service...

The staff at Catherines was amazing. They listened to what I was looking for as a bride and worked with the entire bridal party and my parents to help make everything just perfect. Very reasonably priced.
