Hello! And thank you for visiting our website! My name is Kathy, better known as "Kasia", and I am the proud owner of Kasia's Bridal & Special Occasion Boutique. I was married on June 29th of 2002 to my wonderful husband, Peter. We planned our entire wedding through my shop. From my dress, veil and tiara, to my bridesmaid's, flower girl's and the mom's dresses - guys tuxes, everyone's shoes, everyone's jewelry, our elaborate bilingual invitations, our flowers, all of our bridal accessories, etc. Even our reception favors, engraved bridal party gifts, bouquets, and centerpieces! We had the alterations done through our own shop as well! But before I did so, I was a victim of a Chicago "bridal chain-store scam" myself. I went to a bridal house and ordered my dress almost 2 years in advance. Do you know that I never received my dress, nor did I ever get my money back for it! The particular store has closed since then, while other locations are still open today under the same business name...however, the memory is still a vivid nightmare. I decided to open up a bridal shop of my own, and VOWED that I would never treat a client the way that I was treated, and more so, not cause brides and grooms the same nightmare-ish agony I experienced, during their happy time. Now, let me tell you how my growing business and I, could help you make your wedding day or special occasion as memorable and as pain-free as possible.

I realize that planning any event can be very stressful, and the last thing you need to worry about is not getting the service and quality that you deserve - knowing this, I would like to inform you that Kasia's Bridal and Special Occasion Boutique is dedicated to providing each and every one of its clients what every full service bridal salon should always offer, aside of outstanding products - Excellent Customer Service, Timeliness, Superb Quality, and Value - all at affordable prices - all of which you will get at Kasia's Bridal, and this we are truly proud of.

Because Kasia's Bridal & Special Occasion Boutique carries a number of outstanding designers, we are able to work with practically every budget. Basically, one could say we are dedicated to perfection! Our desire is to gain your confidence and comfort, and to welcome you into a no hassle, no pressure, zero-stress environment. Kasia's Bridal & Special Occasion Boutique depends on your word-of-mouth business, so our goal is to offer all of our clients everything they could possibly think of for their special day, under one roof, within their budget, in order for them to walk out of our shop happy and ready to tell all of their friends and family about their wonderful experience at Kasia's Bridal!

We offer fabulous selections and full lines of exceptional quality, special occasion apparel and accessories for weddings, cotillions, proms, homecomings, communions, christenings, etc. Just consider us a "One-Stop-Shop" for all occasions for women, men and children of all sizes.

I have worked in customer service for my entire life and can work well with people, and this store gave me the WORST experience. The store had to order my dress because they only carried a sample in the store. The owner suggested I order 2 sizes bigger than normal. I contested this a bit because I am a very small girl, but I thought she would know best. The owner was very condescending during our meeting, but I thought I could put up with it for the dress. I called a month before when my dress was supposed to arrive to check on the status. She did not return my call or e-mails. I had to keep calling. Her mother would answer the phone and say she was not there. A week before the dress was due to arrive, my mother called several times a day and indicated her frustration about not getting her calls and e-mails returned. When it arrived, we went to pick it up 2 days later. They demanded our final payment before we even got to see the dress! When I opened the bag to look at the dress, the owner says in a rude and snarky voice, “Is there something wrong already?” After we paid, I tried it on, and of course it was very large on me. I did NOT want to give this store another dime, so I am going to a trusted seamstress, and the alterations are costing $500 because the owner ordered me a dress that is 2 sizes too big!! I HIGHLY advise staying away from this store. It will cause you very unnecessary stress and extra money spent.

Kasia's Bridal & Special Occasion Boutique responded with the following comments:

I'm sorry that you feel that you were provided unsatisfactory customer service at our shop. I do feel that you are not providing all the information as you have stated in our presence, though. You live in a different state, hence, from the beginning it was said you would have your alterations done closer to home, as purchasing plane tickets for fittings would not make sense. Also, you had stated that you lost weight and continue to want to loose more - to say the dress is too large in a review while you had told me otherwise on Saturday really is unfortunate for the readers of this review. As for calls and email - I have record of each phone conversation with you and your mother, as well as emails. Even when I was not at work, out sick, I contacted you AND your mother, while without a voice, because I knew you needed to plan to purchase a plane ticket to come and see us when your dress arrived. Finally, payment - If you recall, you had walked in on Saturday during an extremely busy time. Our fitting room had some moms and their flower girl daughters in them. In order for you not to wait, Grace wanted to get the paperwork rolling so that you weren't waiting around. Ultimately, though it's a policy for our garments to be paid for prior to touching them, we didn't make a huge issue out of it when you didn't want to pay it up front. I personally talked to you about that when we had you in our fitting rooms - your mom and you seemed very understanding. It's surprising to me that you allowed us to provided you all the customer service we normally give, even carried the gown out to your car for you, after which we hugged and you were on your way. I really wish you had voiced your dissatisfaction in person that we could rectify it instead of anonymously posting a false review. Ultimately, we wish you all the best with your wedding and your new life together with your groom. I'm sorry we couldn't satisfy you and your needs to your liking.
Thank you.

I got a lovely bridal gown here and the alterations were perfect! They have reasonably priced dresses. They may be a little more expensive than online, but the amount is small and so worth it - when it comes to trying on dresses; having someone local to help you through this process; and having alterations in the same store. I would highly recommend them. They are a full specialty store so with enough time you can complete your bridal wear all at the store.

This shop was great! I got just my wedding dress from them. The woman who helps you find the dresses was great. She let me pick a few that I liked out of a book, but then looked at my shape (fuller figure) and just brought me some she thought would be flattering. I ended up buying one she picked and it was off the rack. I cant stress how great the woman was!! The owner was friendly as well.

I also got my alterations done there which were good (done by the owners mom). The only issue I had was that I bought a full bra from them and left it with the dress to get altered. They misplaced the bra, and the did not leave it with my dress. So they gave me another one.

I purchased my dress for under $1000 and it was GORGEOUS! I know I'm obviously biased...but I think it looked better than the majority of the super over-priced gowns in the fashion magazines.

I got a fantastic dress from Kasia's. Her staff were great and were fairly honest about how I looked in the various dresses, without being imposing. Basically, they reinforced what I kind of thought about something, but only offered opinion when asked. And it was not based on the expense of the dress. I bought one of their floor models for a discounted price. It was awesome, I got tons of compliments on the dress. I would recommend them.

Kasia's was a very approachable and non intimidating bridal experience! I had shopped at many boutiques before I came to my final stop at Kasia's and I was relieved to be able to finally find my perfect gown at a beyond reasonable price! I wasn't sure about what to expect as I pulled up to her store front, but as soon as I entered I was greeted with a happy and energetic staff who was eager to meet all my bridal needs! There was a plethera of beautiful gowns to choose from especially in my size, which I had a hard time finding at other stores because of my 6 foot frame, and I did not feel pressure to purchase anything once I did find my gown. Kasia herself worked thoroughly to help me find the best deal as well as keeping in contact with me throughout the whole process. She is very personable, experienced and genuinely cares about her brides needs! I had a wonderful experience and have nothing but great things to say about Kasia's bridal boutique! Her storefront may not be the most glamourous, but don't judge a book by its cover because there are beautiful gowns at great prices inside with a very charming staff. From one bride to another..... definitely check them out!!!

Kasia's bridal is run by Kathy (Kasia in Polish) and her sweet mother, Grace, who does all of the tailoring and dressmaking. The shop is simple and clean - they have RACKS of beautiful sample gowns plus a full back room of dresses to order. The shopping trip was so much fun - they accommodated my large party and moved me through a huge pile of dresses very quickly. When I decided on the dress, they gave me a good price - as good as anything I found for the same style online. (I took off a half-star because I thought the shoes, veils, etc. were overpriced - I got mine elsewhere). The alterations, while not the cheapest, were absolutely PERFECT and the dress looked just amazing on the big day!

I was very happy with Kasia's Bridal. Kasia is very professional, she works hard and was willing to order the dress I wanted. It was a designer dress but for a great price & everybody loved it. The veil was beautiful too. The only negative is the price of alterations...And I felt a little rushed working with Grace, whom you have to be patient with... I would definitely recommend Kasia's, though!

I have never written a review before, but I was so angered by my experience at Kasia's that I felt that other s would benefit from knowing about it. I had to call Kasias three times to see if they had a specific dress because no one ever called me back. We (my mom and another bride) made an appointment for a Saturday afternoon. We drove 45 minutes and when we walked in, Kasia immediately told us to sit down and look through a book of magazine pictures to pick out dresses to try on. She never even asked our names! When we said that we already knew the specific dress that we wanted to try, and that we had a good idea of the styles we were looking for, Kasia said that we had to start by looking at the pictures. Again, we said that we knew what we were looking for, but she refused to go look for dresses with styles we liked. So, we sat down and started to thumb through pictures while she went to get the one dress we had come for (all the while ignoring the second bride). When she returned, she continued arguing with my mother that most people appreciate having pictures to look at. My mom said that was fine and she was willing to move on, but Kasia proceeded to say that she refused to do business with us. When my mom tried to at least look at the dress, Kasia literally ripped it out of her hands. We were so confused that we started to walk out. Kasia began yelling that she had never encountered such difficult people. Her attitude and response to our requests was completely unprofessional and entirely rude. Perhaps she was just having a bad day. What I can't understand, though, is that on her website she promises to never create a terrible dress shopping experience because she encountered bad experiences. This was hands down the worst shopping experience I have ever had, and to have it connected to my wedding makes it so much worse. I was on the verge of tears when I left, and still cannot understand how it became so dramatic. I would not recommend Kasias to anyone! P.S. She also yelled at my friend to stop chomping her gum. Unbelievable!

I bought my dress at a sample sale. They were all discontinued dresses and it was first come first serve and you had to buy it off the rack. It was originally a 1200 dress and I got it for 600 bucks. It was definetly worth it. I did not get my alterations there.. Too expensive! I did feel a little rushed when I was there because there were so many people there trying on dresses but in the end it was worth it because I LOVED my dress.

I was introduced to Kasia's through my friend. We were engaged two weeks apart and planned our weddings together. She had great luck finding her gown there at a steal and recomended I go to the upcoming sale. The sale was "off the rack, cash only" and I, too, got a great bargain and exactly what I was looking for (a gown with sleeves- never imagined how difficult that would be!)
Kathy, the owner, was very personable and helpful throughout the process of finding the right gown and its alterations, not to mention organizing the bridesmaids' and flower girl's dresses. Grace, the head seamstress/tailor, worked miracles!
I had gone to many other bridal shops to search for my gown, but was most impressed with the service and value I found at Kasia's. I highly reccommend them to anyone looking for bridal or other formal gowns.

I bought my dress and veil from Kasia. The dress i bought at one of her semi-annual sales and i was able to get a $1600 maggie sottero dress for $350!!! Alterations and the veil made up for the rest, but i couldn't have been happier.

Kathy was great. I got a designer dress there for $600, and it was one of the prettiest dresses I have ever seen. it is a small boutique with a lot of dresses, so some things are hard to find, but my dress was amazing. And Kathy was flexible when my maid of honor flaked out and I had to reorder some dresses. She was a huge help. I would recommend her to any bride on a budget

I went here soley on a recommendation from a coworker that bought her gown at this cute boutique. She and I have similar tastes, so I trusted her judgement, as her gown was absolutely stunning. When I pulled up, I was a bit shocked as my expectation was different of the outside, but I still went in and BOY AM I GLAD I DID! This boutique is truly a treasure in itself like a couple other people here have too posted. You walk in and immediately you see an ocean of colors & fabric. SO MANY dresses! The store had, I'm not kidding, maybe 2000 bridal gowns alone. The store owner asked me for my choice of style and fabric, color and gave me OPTIONS! MANY OF THEM. I saw all moderate to high priced designers (about $300 to $3500). I told the owner what my budget was and she made sure to stay under ($2000). I loved the fact that I was important to her. She kept to my appointment and offered me her 'personal shopping experience' as she promised me over the phone. It truly was personal and she worked with me the entire time, I didn't have to look for her to have questions answered. I fell in love with four gowns, all in a range of prices (one of them was only $550, I couldn't believe it!). I ended up purchasing a $900 dress from Demetrios. She offered me options to purchase out of her stock at a much lower price, or to purchase a new one at an off-price as well. The Demetrios dress she pulled for me, that I ended up buying, was a gown right out of her stock that was in fact brand new. With the money I saved, I had extra money to spend on accessories, alterations, AND flowers! She freshly opened the gown in front of me so I new it was new. I mentioned accessories, the number of hair accessories she had, Oh my god! And they were well priced. The alterations were prompt and inexpensive and were NOT a flat fee. I recommend this place to anyone & everyone. If you want personal service, honesty, and great prices, make an appointment with Kasia's Bridal.

Kathy is great! She works hard and she knows what shes doing. The only problems I had were one of the bridesmaid dresses fell apart and the cost of shipping. That's all.

Kasia's Bridal & Special Occasion Boutique responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the great review! I really appreciate it! However, your bridesmaid dress falling apart shocks me. What happened, and which/whose dress was it? Can I be of service to attempt to fix it? I see that your wedding was in 2006, but there's no reason why the dress in question should possibly be unwearable. Please let me know if I could do anything for you.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

Kathy of Kasia's Bridal

prompt, easy to work with, undergarments and alterations a little pricey but dress was a good deal.

I had been to 4 other bridal stores before coming to Kasia's and this was one of the best experiences. Not only was there a great selection but the staff were wonderful. They were understanding, not pushy, and made me feel comfortable. Great selection!

Fabulous service and selection. Kathy and her staff helped me through the tough decision of finding my perfect wedding gown, veil, custom jewelry and dresses for my maids. Honest, reliable assistance, reasonable prices and timely arrival of all the items I purchased from Kasia's Bridal. Alterations were done by Grace, who was efficient, highly qualified and a perfectionist. You could tell these ladies LOVE what they do, as I loved what they did or me and my family.

Very happy bride here! Highly recommend Kasia's to very bride I know.

I would highly recommend Kathy and Grace. I found my dress online and ordered it through Kasia's so I did not need any help choosing my gown. However, the alterations done by Grace were absolutely perfect and very reasonably priced. They were both very friendly and I really felt they wanted me to look my best on the day. The gown cleaning and preservation service is also very reasonably priced.

I found Kasia's when searching for a nearby bridal salon on Google. Kasia is an energetic, bubbly, and creative shop owner. She was fun to have my appointment with and offered sound advice about bustles, veils, shoes, silhouette, and functionality of my bridal gown. She wasn't pushy or overpriced. I felt comfortable in her hands. Her salon was clean, organized, safe, and decorated. I love her passion for the business. Her mom is the seamstress in the neighboring/joint business and this lady knows what she is doing! It's wonderful to be able ask questions about custom alterations, options depending on the fabric, length, colors, etc. and get answers right away instead of "I wonder if I could do this..." It was easy to set up an appointment and they were so flexible with me when I had to reschedule mine. They were patient as I stood in sample gowns with indecision. And it was the most fun when Kasia really asked, "Are you saying 'yes to the dress'?!" :)

I went there the day after Christmas. I brought my entourage with me and we went through dresses. Now I am a plus size bride so I dreaded the experience. I had been to Macy's Salon and got horrible service just browsing. This store prides it self on one on one service and it is smaller than a big chain but not cramped.

There was plenty of place to sit even for myself with 4 people and another bride and her entourage. Kathy was super helpful as well as her mother. Oh did I mention not only am I a plus bride I am only 5 feet tall. So they gave me their honest opinions on the dress and advice on the alterations.

I narrowed my search to 2 dresses came back the next day with my mom. Never once feeling pressured to buy that minute. Then came back again a week later with my dad and step mom I purchased the dress in full.

I loved my dress and I hope you think about Kasia's Bridal and consider then greatly when looking for that perfect dress.
