Holly is my Fairy Godmother. She created a custom wedding dress for me that was beyond my wildest dreams. It was the perfect dress. The process, from start to finish, was great -- Holly really listened to my vision and we worked together to create the dress. I trusted her completely and the final product was even better than I could have imagined.

The shop also won me over -- it is so beautiful and, because they only take one appointment at a time, you get the attention you really deserve when you're making such an important decision for your day. Both Holly and Daniela are highly knowledgeable and eager to help you find the perfect dress - be it a designer they carry in the store or a custom gown.

I can't recommend the Dame Couture team enough! Make an appointment today!

My sister in law's wedding dress was made by Holly and she is the one who recommended her. I'm so, so happy I listened.

I have already given multiple people Holly's information I've only been married a little over a month. I had a vision in my head of what i wanted the dress to look like and it was amazing to see it all come to life thanks to Holly. She's reasonably priced and although Dame is located in Evanston and I live in Chicago, every trip was worth it and I looked forward to every fitting.

My dress was the most beautiful thing I've ever worn.

I had the best time working with Holly, from picking out the dress, to alterations, brainstorming on accessories, etc. I had endless compliments on my dress from all of my guests (and my dry cleaner!). Could not recommend Dame Couture more!!!

Loved working with Holly! When I came in from out of town to try on dresses, I felt I could really trust her advice and opinion. She honestly told me that her favorite dress on me was from another designer, even though I was also trying on some of her own designs. She was a pleasure to work with, not pushy, or trying to get me into a particular kind of dress. Great place to shop for indie brides who want something a little different, and don't want the overblown and stressful stereotypical dress shopping experience. Holly also gave me great advice on how to wear my dress the day of, an even gave me free sticky tape and showed me where to put it.

I have NOTHING but praise to say! I visited several shops, both large and small. Holly's was the only location that had quality, variety and sizing.
I selected a difficult dress that needed to be shipped out more than once due to designer issues that could not be foreseen.
Holly went above and beyond at every step to make sure I was happy and taken care of.
She made the journey to my wedding day absolutely amazing. I couldn't imagine shopping with anyone else!

Everything about my wedding dress experience was perfect at Dame Couture. I loved working with Holly, she made everything easy and did an amazing job with the dress I ordered. I could not have been happier with the results! I tried on dresses at a few other stores but fell in love with unique dresses at Dame Couture. I am so grateful to Dame Couture for helping me find the perfect dress and for making this part of my wedding planning stress-free!

Without a doubt the BEST and EASIEST part of my entire wedding planning and experience!!! There were several hiccups (the wrong dress shipped by the designer) along the way that had nothing to do with Holly, but she expertly managed everything without a single issue. Holly is reassuring and a blessing for any bride to be!!! She gave me the BEST advice for hair and jewelry ... I looked exactly the way I wanted to on my special day. I wish I could attach a photo because I felt so beautiful that day. Every bride deserves that feeling!! Thank you Holly!!!

I came to Evanston from Detroit to try on the Truvelle line (and a very special dress). From the very beginning, Holly was helpful and gave wonderful feedback. Having never been married before, there's a lot to consider even with the dress that no one tells you! Holly was patient and answered all of my questions. I was nervous about the amount of alterations that I would need for the dress, but she assured me and delivered the most perfect and well-fitting dress I could imagine, even after I had to have some custom sizing. My mom and I travelled a lot back and forth last year and Holly graciously met us at the shop earlier than she would normally to accommodate our day trips in Chicago. I can't say enough wonderful things about the shop and the service. I wish I had an excuse to come back more often!

Everyone at Dame Couture was phenomenal to work with! I'd known someone for whom Holly had made (what turned out to be her first commercial-) wedding dress many years ago. I'd saved an image of it, and despite seeing that the dresses on Dame Couture's current website were more traditional than I was looking for (though still unique and gorgeous!), I asked about whether she might consider helping me come up with a vintage-looking olive green wedding dress. The most common feedback I received on it: "Wow, is that vintage? It is SO YOU!" I couldn't have been happier. My only complaint is now that I'm married, I have no need to visit them. (It's a LOVELY shop.)
