Mary is a wonderful person!!! At first we were only buying my dress and jewelry from her, and we're planning to rent all the tuxes elsewhere. But something happened with my son's tux, and we got fed up so we ordered from Mary instead. She had his tux the next day!!! Altered and all!! She was awesome about it!

My dress was THE DRESS. And she made sure it for me perfectly. The alterations were perfect! The woman knows what she's doing! :)

Her hours are so flexible to help fit your own schedule.

Overall, she did a wonderful job with everything! I am reccomending my friends to her also!!

Mary Carol is such a pleasure to work with! She is friendly and professional; she never once made me feel like she was in a hurry or that I was wasteing her time. She was very helpful with suggestions, but never pushed me to make a decision. Her store is emaculate!!!

I am about 5'2" and 110 pounds, so this dress took a lot of work to alter. The bottom had a lot work that needed to be hand sewn, and it looked great! She was so careful to keep it looking clean and good, and helped me put together the full package for my wedding day needs (including head piece, veil, and jewelry). I was so happy with the way it turned out!

We were very pleased with Mary Carol and the work that she did for our wedding. We feel that she went 'over and above' all expectations. We had several "challanges" for her to solve...including a bridesmaid that was due close to the wedding date. Everything worked out and we were very happy with the dresses, alterations, and the service. We would highly recommend Mary Carol's to anyone and everyone. A big 'thank you' goes to Mary Carol.

Mary's shop is small, but I found the perfect dress there after looking at several larger stores. She then made it fit me perfectly.

I absolutely love Mary's!! When I started looking for dresses, immediately I thought of all the big chains in Chicago and it wasn't until a friend told me about how wonderful her experience was at Mary's that I even heard of this smaller bridal dress boutique 15 minutes south of where I lived. I checked out her website of where she bought her dresses at, and immediately fell in love with my dream dress, as well as really liking about 10 others. My bridesmaid, Michelle, and I went to try on dresses (my very first time) and even though it was small she had many that I liked online. We got one-on-one personal attention from just Mary and had a great time. My dream dress wasn't in stock - but I trusted Mary and ordered the dress anyways. It was awesome (if you're curious it's in the Fairy Tale Collection from Mary's). I also bought all my wedding jewelry there, and my flower girl's jewelry as well. My mom and I spent all day going all over Chicago looking for a dress for her - and low and behold, we found it at Mary's later that day! This place is great, definitely worth a visit if you are engaged! She is very reliable and her alterations are amazing!!
