I'm from the Chicagoland area, but purchased my wedding gown from a salon in Peoria. Since that shop was so far away from my home, I only visited it once when I tried on my dress. Afterwards, I still needed a number of accoutrements to complete my look.

Although I had already purchased my gown, the staff at The Dress By Nicole was so kind and helpful and wonderful. I worked with both manager Jessica (who ROCKS) and consultant Tia (who's super sweet), and I found the perfect veil and petticoat to complete my bridal look.

I highly recommend The Dress By Nicole for any of your bridal needs!

I am absolutely in love with my dress I purchased at the Dress by Nicole! It was the only bridal shop I visited and knew I had found the one immediately! The staff was very friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely excited to help you find your dress. I also used the seamstress they recommended, who was amazing! She was able to sew in a corset I purchased at the Dress by Nicole and it held the dress up great. I also bought my veil here, which I am also in love with! Everything in the shop is beautiful and unique! If you want a great dress buying experience I would recommend the Dress by Nicole! They allowed five of my family members to come in to help and watch me try on my dresses.

What a great experience shopping for my wedding dress. They sales rep had knowledge of all her dresses and helped me make selections that were a great fit for me. They we very nice and weren't pushy at all, but when I asked a question they had an answer for me. I loved the small feel of the shop and they treated my family members that were with me very well. I LOVED my dress and wouldn't want to have bought it from any other store!

Stacey with Dress by Nicole made it ALL possible! I found the wedding dress of my dreams that was right off of the runway. It was my 2nd visit to the boutique for the 2015 Kitty Chen Trunk party collection and I saw Roslyn in the window and actually was the 1st Bride to try it on. Let's say I tried on about 10+ bridal dresses that were all beautiful - so many choices to choose from within the boutique. I came in with one style in my head and Stacey assisted me along the way with developing into something extravagant and breath-taking. Stacey was very accommodating with my 4+ entourage and extremely personable. She and my wedding team kept telling me I would know it was it when I tried it on and we saved Kitty Chen's Roslyn dress for last. The dress fit like a glove and once it was on I was told my smile out-shined the glam on the dress itself. The accessories chosen to accent the dress was also a marvel, a beautiful 2015 Kitty Chen beaded jacket accessorized the dress to give it such an appeal. My husband, Marvin was very pleased when he saw me the day of our wedding, 08.15.15 and our guests and vendors on our BIG Day to this day still talks about the dress was made for me for I was one of the most beautiful brides ever seen.

The Dress was very good at helping provide dresses, my dress and tuxes for our wedding party. They were very responsive with emails and respectful every time I went in. The dress was gorgeous and they recommended a great alteration lady who was awesome!

I purchased my absolute dream wedding dress from The Dress by Nicole. I looked at quite a few shops and saw pretty dresses, but they were either too much money or nothing that truly caught my eye. The Dress by Nicole has beautiful dresses at reasonable prices for the wonderful quality you are getting. Last fall I was about to purchase my dress from the shop, but then they told me about the Kitty Chen trunk show they were having the following weekend and recommended I come back then to save 10%. I thought that was so awesome that they told me about the sale, and it is truly an indication of the types of girls that work there! Every girl I worked with was so nice and friendly. The environment isn't stuffy and I didn't feel rushed or pressured at all. I had a super great wedding dress buying experience at The Dress by Nicole and I recommend them to everyone! They also have beautiful veils and accessories too.

As someone that didn't grow up in the Chicago-area, I did all my vendor research online and was a bit nervous that the vendors I found wouldn't live up to their online presence. I was blown away by how wonderful The Dress by Nicole turned out to be! There wasn't a single dress in there that wasn't beautiful - if you are looking for elegant, romantic wedding dresses, this is the place to go. I initially passed up the dress I ended up purchasing and it was only because the saleswoman I was working brought it into the dressing room after she got an idea of what I liked that I even tried it on. I didn't end up buying my dress the first time I visited but when I went back a week later, they let me try on the two I was deciding between again and take as long as I wanted to make up my mind. I am over the moon happy with my dress (which came in early, by the way!) and ended up buying a gorgeous veil too even though I swore I would never wear one! In short, the dresses are gorgeous, the price is right, and the service is wonderful...check out The Dress by Nicole!!

We purchased the bridesmaid dresses for my wedding from The Dress by Nicole. We had lined up a few appointments one Saturday for a couple of different bridal shops and went to The Dress first. After our day of shopping, we collectively agreed that we wanted to go back to The Dress. We found a dress we all loved at a very affordable price and the staff was excellent to work with!

I had bridesmaids from Illinois, Michigan and Kentucky that were standing in my wedding. The Dress made it so easy for the girls that were out of state. They directed them on how to take their measurements and the girls just had to call in their measurements and credit card number to order. They also gave us the choice of shipping the dresses to the out of state girls for an additional $10. Everyone received their dress in excellent condition.

The staff is incredibly knowledgeable, willing to go above and beyond to help and the selection of dresses in the shop is immense but not overwhelming. I am looking forward to shopping The Dress in the future.

This place is adorable! Everyone was very sweet and helped introduce me to wedding gown shopping since I've never stepped foot into a shop before and was a little nervous. Although I didn't buy my wedding dress here, they were very helpful. It turned out the dresses were out of my budget ($1300 and up) but it was still fun to look through the bridesmaid dresses and accessories they have.
