Doris Bridal is a great family owned boutique that makes you feel taken care of! My matron of honor purchased her dress there so I was familiar with this boutique and their amazing work.

On my first visit I worked with Donna and tried on several dresses in many different styles not able to settle on the one. After visiting other countless bridal shops we found a Casablanca Dress online that I loved and Doris carried it so I visited a second time working with Donna again to try it on. To my surprise, Donna mentioned that she pulled this dress for me during my first visit but I turned it down for some reason. After hearing that I felt at ease knowing I loved the dress I tried on and Donna had pulled it for me the first time based off of my vision.

I made several trips back to Doris before my wedding for fittings and each time the staff was extremely friendly, asking questions about my wedding and helping me as I was figuring out my total look including hair, jewerly, etc. I purchased a jeweled hair pin/comb that matched perfectly with my other pearl and silver jewelry.

Annette, the owner and seamstress is outstanding. She has countless years of experience and will not let you walk out of the shop without the dress fitting perfectly in every way!

I would HIGHLY recommend Doris for your wedding gown!! Their selection, value and friendly staff made my experience wonderful! Thank you!

Would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this boutique for your wedding gown or your bridesmaids or your flower girls. They have gorgeous high quality gowns and accessories without the high pressure sales pitches and Annette is a rockstar with tailoring! After trying on at least 50 dresses here and about 6 other bridal boutiques, I found my dress on my 2nd visit here. Annette is so helpful and knowledgable about everything wedding. She took my two 9 & 10 year old ring bearers adult size shirts and turned them into kids shirts when no other tailor could do it. She had sashes made for my flower girls and my dress is absolutely stunning! Definitely stop here for your wedding attire needs!!!

I would recommend Doris' to anyone! I found my dress the first day out looking, and Victoria was so good that the dress I chose was the 3rd one I tried on! After choosing the dress I was told it was discontinued by the designer and the only one they had was the sample which was a size 12. I got really nervous because I'm about a size 4. Annette and her team basically had to construct a new dress, but everything turned out AMAZING!!!! My dress couldn't have fit any better!!!

After trying on dresses all over the North Shore, I can tell you: Don't waste your time anywhere else. Go to Doris. The shop is by appointment only, so they really focus on you and what you want when you come in. Some brides like to dig through piles of dresses in plastic bags - don't! At Doris, you can bring in pictures or describe what you like and they will bring the right dress to you.
My dress required quite a bit of alteration, and everything was done perfectly. The dress fit like a glove and they even sewed pockets into the sides of my dress at my request.

Highly, highly recommend Doris. My dress was a beautiful Pronovias gown, but since I am petite I was concerned that the length of the skirt when shortened would not be quite right. Annette at Doris made sure the dress fit perfectly and it was the most comfortable formal dress I've ever put on. They specially create a bustle that bustled under to create a perfect bell and it took my bridesmaids less than a minute to do. In addition, they were able to do everything in just two fittings since I lived out of town. Great please - very personal, professional and you don't feel like they are doing you a favor working with you, which I found to be the case in some downtown Chicago salons.

Doris Bridal had a wide selection of dresses at reasonable price ranges. On my initial visit, the girl who worked with me really listened to the style of dress that I was describing and had no problem at all if I told her I didn't like something she brought. She just kept working to find the right dress and we did! The alterations were perfect and done on time with no issues. They were even able to change the head piece on my mom's veil, so I could wear it. I would highly recommend Doris Bridal for your dress needs.

They made my dress fit perfectly and every time I walked into the store they treated me like a princess. It was great working with them. My mom bought her dress there too.

Doris Bridal Boutique was amazing! I got a beautiful dress, that they altered beautifully. They helped me find something very flattering that made me feel beautiful, but kept me modest. The only issue I had at all (and barely an issue), was that my appointments were interrupted a few times to help brides who came in without notice. This may be normal in the industry, I don't know.

They have a great selection of the classiest dresses, and they want you to look beautiful, not just sell you a dress.

Don't judge a book by its cover. This family-owned shop hasn't been updated in ages, but the dress selection is better than anywhere I looked, in terms of quality, quantity and especially value. They didn't balk at my budget like other stores and they never put any pressure on me to make a quick decision. Being an out of town bride, there was one major misunderstanding with my fitting, but they handled it well and fit me in the sample, and when I finally tried my dress on, it fit beautifully. Annette is chatty but very talented and I would go back to Doris in a heartbeat if I had to do it all over again.

As an OOT bride, it was important to me that I use a dress shop that has personalized service. I bought my dress approximately 1 year before the wedding. It arrived 3 weeks before the estimated date and the shop called me to find out when I wanted to come in to see it.
I had two dress fittings (8 weeks & 6 weeks before the wedding) to coordinate with my travel schedule. The week of my wedding, I went back for one last try and it was perfect! Nothing left to change, besides a nice pressing :)
I was very happy to work with Annette. She knew who I was when I called and the service there was great. I would recommend to take a look there. It may be a bit further to drive, but worth the trip!

We purchased my daughter's wedding gown, seven bridesmaids dresses, my dress and pocket squares from Doris. My daughter is living out-of-state and they were very accomodating in terms of fittings. They completed alterations on three dresses during the week before the wedding and didn't complain one bit! During most of the process of selecting a wedding gown, my daughter and I tended to see the same dresses over and over again. The selection at Doris included many unique gowns. My very petite daughter had her heart set on a ball gown, most of which tended to swallow her up. Annette at Doris found the perfect dress that met my daughter's vision and looked stunning on her. I knew she'd found the dress when I heard her gasp from the fitting room! I suspect that, if we'd looked, we may have found the gown for less than we paid for it at Doris but the wonderful service more than made up for the lack of discounting. I wanted my daughter to feel like a princess and Doris helped make that happen. I would highly recommend them.

I did not have the best experience here. It was disappointing, because the online reviews were glowing.

I did not like a single dress that I tried on, I don't think that the consultant "got me." I kinda got the feeling that this store caters to the disposable income bride, with a $3000 dress budget.

I'm sorry about your exsperiance. This is the owner and I would like to know if we just didnt have what you wanted or if it was the sales girl just didn"t listen to you. If it was the sales girl I need to discuss this with her so I can improve on our service. Thank You Annette
