Hi All! I hardly write reviews for anything, but I'd like to tell you my experience with my wedding gown because I'm so grateful. My sister had her wedding three years ago and her used another bridal boutique in the area and it was awful! Her dress didn't come in until the last minute and she had to juggle her schedule so much to get it fitted! And she didn't feel like she got the support she needed from that dress shop through the whole process. I was so lucky that I fell in love with a gown from Vanessa's and the rest was smooth sailing. No stress for my dress! I loved it when my special ordered gown came in, and by gosh it was the right size(the sample was a tad small) and it looked gorgeous! There was plenty of time to get my ensemble together and the ladies at the store were so helpful, never pressure selling but patient with every detail. :) My mom and my sister(and her sweet baby) had great time at each fitting. We were out to the door all smiles and that worth a great deal to me! My dress fit perfectly on my wedding day, we had no trouble with the bustle(unlike with my sister's dress) because our seamstress Sylvia was so nice, and she made sure we learned how to bustle my dress with its eleven ties! I had my dress organically cleaned and preserved with Vanessa's and it is now safe in my closet with fond memories. This whole experience has been wonderful! Thank You Vanessa's!

I had a great experience at Vanessa's while purchasing my Bridal Gown. I had found my gown online and was able to located which boutique it was located at in the Chicagoland area. Vanessa's was the only place! I called and they didn't have it yet, but as soon as they got it in, I was notified. I went in to try it on and bought it the same day! It's a very cute little store, so your experience is very personalized. They were very nice and everything went smoothly for me. My dress was reasonable in price, but i'm not sure about the other dresses since I didn't try on any others. Regardless of the price, the value is certainly there in quality. Highly recommend it!

This boutique is the cutest place!!! And the lady who helped me is such a doll. She was very patient with me and my indecisive ways. I bet she knew I would choose the first dress she presented me! It is nice to know that there are still genuine sales people out there that throw in the "old school" hand written thank you notes. Not only did she sell me my dream dress and wonderful bridesmaids dresses, but also she referred me to other vendors and places of interest. It is nice to have a friendly local that you feel you can trust to guide you in the right direction. Thanks Allison for all your help! I love my dress and can't wait to wear it at my wedding!!!
Update:
As my husband's parents live in Arlington Heights, I had my wedding in Chicago. I finished my gown alteration process at Vanessa's. I couldn't be happier! Not only I enjoyed bringing my new family with me to every fitting, seeing my consultant every time I came on Saturdays, but everyone else on the phone was also so nice and patient, even after I had to change my schedule a couple of times. The lady who works there as seamstress is so personable and knowledgeable, and she does great work. Never pushy, but she guided me to the perfect fit! I felt confident and beautiful on my wedding day! Highly recommended!

I loved working with Vanessa's... though her prices for alterations were a bit ridiculous. However, she sold the shop, so I don't know what it will be like now. I loved the store for their wide selection of simple/elegant dresses. The new owner is a designer, and I believe her designs are on the glitzier side... so, time will tell whether or not the shop will be able to maintin it's reputation.

So happy I went with Vanessa's for my dress. Everything turned out perfectly! My dress was absolutely beautiful, and affordable! Yes, some dresses are quite expensive, but I was able to find something in my price range.
Vanessa, herself was so helpful, as well as her team. Especially since I live in Florida, and was having my wedding in Chicago, I was only able to have 2 fittings. Vanessa was very flexible with my schedule. I was very happy with their services, and I received so many compliments on my dress, even now, a month later. Thank you Vanessa!

I purchased my Marisa gown from Vanessa's Modern Bride in Alrington Heights. ALthough I LOVED my gown, my scorings were low due to a error in length ordering. I am 5'8 1/2" tall and they did not even suggest ordering a "long" length. When my dress came in, it would have been perfect if I had been barefoot, but I did not have a beach wedding. My own personal seamstress lengthened the gown with a middle sash and cut the entire dress in half - she is a wonderful job! However, the owner at Vanessa's simply suggested that I stretch it out or wear flats.

Other than the length issue, I love my dress and the shoppe was cute and lovely for purchasing a wedding gown.
