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.

Dress shopping at The Dress by Nicole was a wonderful experience for me. Each time I went in, the staff was extremely helpful and professional. I ended up buying not only my dress there, but also the belt, hair piece, and shoes. Although you couldn’t really see the shoes – they were absolutely amazing and recommended by store. I wore Tom’s wedges and they were extremely comfortable!!
The Dress by Nicole also recommended Mary for alterations. Mary was excellent. Also, what helped me out was that the store dropped off the dress to Mary. I know this is a small detail, but I live in the city so by the store doing this for me it relieved me from taking a special trip out to Wheaton to transport the dress to the alterations.

I absolutely loved The Dress by Nicole and my whole experience at the store! I first met Nicole when I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding and she was very helpful with getting sized for and ordering my bridesmaid dress. I knew I wanted to visit The Dress when I got engaged! I visited the store with my mom and sister and explained to Nicole the styles and designers I liked. She helped us pick out some dresses in our price range and I fell in love with the sixth one I tried on! I actually had a "dress moment" and started to cry the second I saw myself in the mirror. Nicole even chose a belt to go with my dress that complemented it beautifully. Buying my wedding dress was one of the easiest parts of my wedding planning process and Nicole helped to make it as smooth as it was. My sister even picked out the dress all five of my bridesmaids wore. On my wedding day (7.26.14), I felt so incredibly beautiful! I received so many compliments on my dress and my bridesmaids' dresses. I couldn't have been happier with how the colors and everything looked! I am truly thankful for Nicole's professionalism and her genuine interest in my special day! I would definitely recommend all brides visit The Dress by Nicole!!!

The Dress by Nicole is a beautiful shop with a nice selection of gorgeous wedding gowns. The staff was very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly and made the entire process of finding 'the dress' very special. They were also very helpful with working with the entire bridal party for both bridesmaid dresses and tuxes. I would highly recommend this shop.
