I've had a wonderful experience working with this store. It was a one stop shop: bride and groomsmen gifts, veil, hair accesories, flower girl gift and basket. Everthing is nicely priced, service is great and orders came in--in a timely manner. Plus the folks that work there are great and offer great suggestions!

TERRIBLE!!! If you're ordering something STAY AWAY! They told me two weeks for my shoes and its been almost SIX weeks and still no shoes!! They only offer store credit on returns, they do not follow through with orders (I had to call to check on my order that was long over due!)

If you want hassle-free shopping, this is not the place to go!!!

The Wedding Etc is the place to go for all of your wedding needs from veils to headpieces to cake toppers to anything else miscellaneous you might need. It is all about the service here and they are beyond helpful! When I was disappointed that the girl in the cake topper I wanted didn't have brown hair, they painted it for me. They did exactly what I wanted when it came to my veil because I had some very specific wants. They knew my name every time I walked in the door after my second visit. They were able to provide everything I needed! They genuinely care about you and your wedding and want to make it everything you want! I would recommend The Wedding Etc to everyone I know getting married! I can't wait to go in and share the day with them!

I love to wear headbands, so for my wedding I wanted a big amazing headband. I could not find anything anywhere close to what I wanted. I decided to go to The Wedding Etc. and I was so happy I did! The salesperson there was so helpful, and unlike so many other places, they had so many great headpieces I couldn't even choose! I ended up exceeding my budget and picking one that was so amazing I didn't even care, and never regretted it. They even let me put down a deposit, and pay for the rest next time I came in.

I decided to look at the shoes while I was there. I had been having a hard time finding wide shoes with a short heel that had sparkles, and the first shoe I looked at were exactly that, and they were so perfect! I found all of my accessories in one day! The only thing that was wrong was that I had to order the shoes and they told me 2 weeks but it actually took 3 and they did not call to tell me of the delay. I can overlook this because they were perfect, and a great price!

My headband and shoes looked great for my wedding. I wore the shoes all night, and will be wearing them again for formal occassions. I will save my headband forever because I love it so much.

THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!

The store has HORRIBLE costumer service!! I purchased a pair of shoes from this shop and the next day (after an hour of wearing them) they broke! I tried to return them to the store and the manager refused to give a refund or an exchange! She was extremely rude and cold during the interaction and VERY unhelpful!! I like to support small business' but this shop had VERY poor quality products and were NOT cooperative with costumer's needs!! DO NOT SHOP HERE!

The Wedding Etc. responded with the following comments:

Our store policy states "Merchandise may be exchanged only within 15 days of purchase. Custom orders, dyed shoes and merchandise showing any wear are not exchangeable."

We are proud of our positive reviews and are always striving to do better. Although these shoes had been worn we did replace them with a new pair at no charge.

The Wedding Etc. is a great store in the heart of Downers Grove, with the cutest wedding items imaginable! I bought this great wooden card box, that slots that I could put pictures in and it locked. It was super cute and very well built. I also bought my dessert server set, my something blue, a bride tank top, crystal cake topper, bouquet picture frame and crystal head band there. The bouquet picture frame tied into my bouquet and had a small cherished picture of my grandma in it. Everyone at the store was really great to talk to and very helpful. I can't say enough great things about this place. If you are getting married it is a must stop at store. You never know what you might find, but I'm sure it will be cute!

The Wedding Etc has THE CUTEST STUFF! I found the most AMAZING jewelry there! Also my headpiece, things for my bachelorette party, my shoes, bridal party gifts, a memory candle, our unity candle, our guestbook, and my outfit for getting ready on my wedding day (A cute personalized hoodie and capris). Everyone was so helpful every time I was there, and they were quick to call me and let me know when items I ordered came in. Basically I couldn't have had my wedding without this place!

Wedding Etc. is a perfect place to go to order almost anything you need for your wedding. I purchased many items for my wedding including a unity candle, wedding party gifts, a bride shirt and a lot more. It is a great store to go into to get ideas. They have fantastic customer service. They are always willing help and are very friendly. Each time I went into the store they recognized me and even helped me personalize a handkerchief when I was in a major time crunch! I plan on going back to get gifts for friends of mine who are also getting married soon.
