My first marriage and wedding was in 2004, and I purchased my gown from Wolsfelts. Now, in 2014 and after a divorce, I am in the midst of planning for my second marriage. I just knew that I would find a gown at Wolsfelts! Their dresses are so unique and beautiful! The experienced sales personnel make the brides feel special and will go out of their way to help you find THE dress. Now... if only they could help with the husband selection. LOL But, this time, I know it's right!

I was SO very happy with Wolsfelts for my attire! I had heard so many great things about this place and from the moment I stepped in there, I knew it was the right place to be. The staff there was so easy to work with and Amy helped to make my bridal gown choice an easy one! She was able to find things that matched my description of what I wanted and she was able to keep my price low. I knew what dress I wanted once I tried it on and when I went there for the second time, it was clear to me. The ladies in the shop were so accommodating and they were able to help make the dress and veil selection so much easier! Alicia did a fabulous job with the alterations and she was very easy to work with. Donna in the tuxedo department was the BEST! She met with my fiancée and his best man and walked them through the whole process. She was easy to work with and was able to pick out the best tuxes for the guys! We really had a great time at Wolsfelt's and enjoyed our whole experience there! I would highly recommend this vendor to anyone looking for attire!

I loved being able to pick out dresses myself to try on, and not have someone bring me a bunch of dresses that I may or may not like. I ordered the dress of my dreams, and when it came in (early!), it fit like a glove. The staff was very helpful in scheduling my fittings, as I had moved out of state mid-wedding planning. My dress was the star of our wedding, and I was so happy to be able to purchase it from a family-owned local business. Thank you Wolsfelt's!!!!

I found my dress at Wolsfelt's Bridal within 30 minutes of being there. The woman helping me was extremely helpful and cautious with my budget. I went during their coat drive fall sale, and even though I didn't have a coat to donate, she offered to bring one from home so I could get the discount and stay in my budget.

From there, everything was a breeze. My dress came in early and required only minimal alterations. They were NOT one of those boutiques that make you order 2 sizes too big just to ding you with alteration fees.

The day of my wedding, I looked gorgeous. I had the perfect man and the perfect dress. I was stopped by complete strangers so they could take my picture to show people they knew getting married soon.

Wolsfelt's was recommended to me by my best friend, and I would recommend it to anyone else too. They are a great group to work with!

I had heard wonderful things from friends who had found dresses here, but was a little nervous after reading some less than flattering reviews. Nonetheless, I made my appointment on a last minute decision to look at dresses before my sister left town. I had no idea what kind of dress I wanted and was actually dreading the process. My hostess, Laurie, was wonderful in helping me let go and really enjoy the time. She brought a whole bunch of dresses and really analyzed my likes and dislikes. After only a few dresses, she was able to tell whether I would like a dress or not like a dress before I even put it on. She was very knowledgeable and I was very grateful. In a little over an hour, I had found my perfect dress. A few months later, my mom went there during a big sale they were having. She also was able to find the perfect dress at a pretty decent price. We both did our alterations there and I was really pleased with how they came out. I did spend more than I was initially comfortable with on the whole process, but I honestly cannot imagine having worn anything else on such a special day. Overall, I was very happy with my experience at Wolsfelts!

I was able to find my wedding dress and my mother's MOB dress here and it was a very pleasant experience. Nicole did a great job showing me dresses and giving me options. It was also great that they had a wide range of styles of dresses in every size. The seamstresses, Sharon and Alicia, were also top-notch. Our dresses came out perfectly. I just wish I could wear it more often.

I planned my wedding in two months and needed a dress so wolsfelts was my first choice. I'm so glad I did because they were so helpful and didn't panic when I said I have two months. I found my dress off the rack and it fit like a glove. They did everything on a timely manner and worked on my dress as it needed some work but not once did I hear it wasn't possible. I love this place!

This is simply an amazing bridal shop. After coming here for the first time for bridesmaid dresses for a friend's wedding, I knew I wanted to return in looking for my own wedding dress. I found my perfect dress here at my very first appointment. Even after looking at other stores just to be sure, I never found a dress that really compared or the same quality of customer service. Everyone is so friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Sharon did such a fantastic job on my alterations. I think the best part about Wolsfelts is you know you're getting a unique selection of dresses and the best service around.

My dress was amazing!! I was looking for a Spanish lace form fitting dress, and the woman that was helping me pulled a few dresses to start off with. One was exactly what I was looking for, and another one was an empire waist dress with chiffon and a netting overlay. Before I tried it on I was pretty certain it was not my style, but of course after I put it on I knew it was the perfect dress for me! I also got my alterations through Wolsfelts and when my dress came in and I put it on for the first time I thought it fit and looked perfectly. But yet again I was wrong! Carmen made my dress fit like a glove and it ended up even more amazing!
I loved everything about Wolsfelts. It is a small store, but they had a huge selection of dresses. Every time I walked in there I was greeted immediately. I had one person help me find a dress and she was only helping me. Unlike other bridal boutiques where they are running between brides. I also got the bridesmaids dresses (which were amazing as well) and yet again, when we were picking out dresses we had one person helping us and she was only assisting us.
It was an all around great experience and I would highly recommend Wolsfelts to all brides!

The people at Wolsfelt's Bridal have been wonderful to work with, and they are very friendly. They were great at helping me stay within my budget and didn't try to push me into buying a dress that was beyond my budget. I worked with Andrea, and she was so helpful in finding the dress that was just my style. I ordered my dress within a shorter time from my wedding. Wolsfelt's was great at keeping tabs on my dress to make sure it was ready in time, and it even arrived early! I would definitely buy my dress from them had I to do it over again.

I got my gorgeous dress from Wolsfelts bridal in Aurora. I loved the attentive service and one on one help. I did not feel pushed to getting a dress, but Lori, who helped me make my final decision, assisted in pros and cons of two different dresses I was torn between. I ended up going with the one that I felt better in and that looked better on as well. I am so happy with my dress I want to wear it again. I felt so beautiful and the alterations were done perfectly. My dress fit me like a glove and bustle, although complicated, was beautiful and perfect! They held my dress for me until the day before my wedding and pressed it along with my two veils. I got my earrings from there as well. A little pricy, but no more than any other bridal salon, but I loved them and I will wear them again for a special occasion or fancy outing. I am thrilled with the Wolsfelts team and service provided by them. I recommend going, they have a great selection of all your bridal needs and wonderful help! Also got great advice and instructions on how to bustle and bat to do after the wedding with my gown!

Nicole at Wolsfelt's was amazing to work with. It was the first place I went and she made the process so easy! She even got my younger sister involved by having her try on bridesmaid dresses to see how they would look with my dress. She listened to everything I said and found something I never would've picked out for myself. Wolsfelt's dresses are beautiful and very reasonably priced.

I had a wonderful experience with Wolsfelts. The people were wonderful and trying on dresses was an extremely personal and relaxing experience. My dress is amazing and I received a lot of compliments on it. The alterations department is excellent, they were able to schedule me in almost as soon as my dress got in. I would highly recommend Wolsfelts.

I have two daughters. Both of my girls purchased their dresses from Wolsfelt's Victorian Bridals. My oldest purchased her dress 3 years ago and we were so pleased with the dress, price and quality that when my youngest was looking for a dress she only wanted to go to Wolsfelt's. Stepping into the shop is like stepping into a high end showroom. However, the prices are very down to earth. The selection of dresses is so large that we were able to find exactly what my daughter wanted in one appointment. They are also so clever to have promotions during the Holidays that it was worth the trip to go during the Easter Holiday for her dress. She got to find eggs that had different discounts in them. People at the shop are so helpful and easy going that the appointment was so much fun. I feel bad that I have run out of daughters, because it was such a great experience. I would really recommend taking a ride to Wolsfelt's for your dress.

When I was shopping for my bridal gown, I attended a trunk show at Wolsfelt's. The staff was very friendly, and there were a lot of gowns to choose from. I was very pleased with the gown I selected and I was even more pleased with the precise alterations that were made and their hand-ironing skills to make sure each pleat was perfect upon pick-up the day before my wedding. This place is a great store to check out.

I have nothing but GREAT things to say about the Wolsfelts team - specifically Carmen (tailor) and Nicole (sales). I searched at various bridal boutiques including BHLDN, Bella Bianca and Ultimate Bride to name a few, but had the best luck at Wolsfelts. They worked with me on everything from the cost to fixing my mini bustle issue (created by a seamstress I took to my dress to outside of Wolsfelts). I'd highly recommend the shop to anyone searching for a dress as it truly was more than just a shop trying to make a "sale".

Wolsfelts was such a pleasure to work with. During my very first visit, Jackie helped me find my absolute dream dress. She made me feel very relaxed while trying on dresses and I never felt pressured to make up my mind. Carmen did an amazing job on my alterations and the dress fit me perfectly on my wedding day. I also bought my jewelry from here and it was beautiful. All of the tuxedos were wonderful as well. It was nice to have help and suggestions while picking the vests and ties out. We also got our bridesmaid dresses from here and they were beautiful.
Wolsfelts made me feel at home everything I walked in and I am going to miss working with all the ladies there.

I went to Wolsfelts after a friend recommended it. I had a horrible experience at Eva's and need help. I spoke with a saleswoman, Jackie and explained my issue and exactly what I wanted. She had me send a pic and at my appointment she had so many dresses ready to go. Jackie was super helpful throughout the appointment and I found THEE dress! For alterations, I worked with Sharon who was a true expert. The dress had spaghetti straps and I wanted wider ones which was not a problem for Sharon. I loved my new straps and my hem was perfect! I even purchased a belt from Etsy and she added straps to the dress and the belt so I could keep the belt and sell it if I wanted - how awesome! And she didn't even charge me for it! I could NOT be happier with the service I received. They even sent me an email with instructions for picking up my dress - it felt super professional! I originally planned on selling my dress, but seeing how beautiful it was, I am definitely keeping it and cherishing it forever. And once again, everyone loved the dress :)

My daughter got married on Saturday, 622/13 and now that I'm more rested I wanted to let everyone know what a wonderful experience we had at Wolsfelt's. From the minute we walked in not really knowing what she wanted to the minute I walked out yesterday after dropping the groom and groomsmen's suits off and having the dress cleaned and preserved, it has been nothing but a treat!

They helped us to avert true catastrophe when one of the bridesmaid was "fired" the night before the wedding and a fill in was assigned. The dress fit perfectly, except the hem. Debbie, one of the owners assisted us and made sure that assured us that the alteration would be done within 2 hours from it being pinned, and it was! They truly made the preparations for the wedding go smoothly and I cannot imagine using any other shop for the dress! They were all professional, extremely helpful and very friendly!

This was the third store that I visited on my quest for the dress! It was immediately different than my other two experiences just based on the staff alone. They were welcoming and excited for me and determined to find me exactly what I wanted. I had found a dress at a previous boutique that I absolutely loved but it was out of my price range. They were so knowledgable in terms of their selection that they immediately found a very similar style that I ended up adoring SO MUCH more and it was almost $1000 cheaper :) They made each fitting fun and personal by greeting me and showing interest in all of my wedding planning as well other aspects of my life. They have sales on their accessories quite frequently which allowed me to get the perfect matching jewelry for an unbelievable value. I was so in love with my experience at this store, that I demanded my best friend visit them for her wedding dress and she also said yes during her very first visit!

Wolsfelt's Bridal was amazing from the start. They were very patient, helpful, and informative during each & every one of my appointments, from my first time trying on gowns to my final gown fitting. Wolfelt's has a wide variety of gowns to choose from in a decent range of prices, and they are very willing to work with your budget. The gown and veil I chose were absolutely PERFECT for my outdoor, spring wedding, and were both a great price. I could not have found a better dress for my special day! My seamstress Carmen did an INCREDIBLE job on alterations. She was so sweet and put SO much time and effort into her work. It was obvious that she truly cared about me and how my dress turned out. For example, the train on my gown was very long, but she was able to put in a perfect bustle with over 15 loops & ties and I never had any problems with it coming undone during the reception! Overall I had a great experience with Wolsfelt's. They give you a very personalized, affordable experience and I would happily recommend them to any bride!

I can't say enough about the staff & professionalism at Wolsfelts. They treat you like you're not just another bride. I had Lori. She was so helpful and patient. She truly knew what she was doing and does so well at it. My seamstress was amazing too. This was my second wedding and BOTH my experiences were wonderful. My dress, veil and jewelry on the beach looked perfect. Thank you for a stress free amazing experience!

I had the best experience at Wolfsfelt's Victorian Bridal! My mom actually got her wedding dress there back in 1986! I had my first appointment with Lori and was so impressed with her! She was patient and allowed me to try on a lot of dresses so I can get the full experience with my mom. After I tried each dress, she asked me what I liked about it and would go find me a dress that had what I wanted. In the end, I found my perfect Maggie Sottero dress with a sweetheart neckline, beading, and detachable sleeves for my church wedding. Then, I came back for another appointment with my aunt, my cousin, my grandma, and my mom and walked down the stairs in my perfect dress complete with headpiece and cathedral length veil. It was such a great moment with the closest women in my family. Lori made it all possible! She even helped me get some extra crystals on the back of my veil for some extra bling!

I found this little gem via a mailing that I received from them. I had never heard of the place, but when I was having trouble finding bridesmaids dresses at all of the places I knew of, I thought I would give a random store a try. I already purchased my dress at another store and was very happy with them, but could not find a bridesmaid dress i liked there. I was soo happy I found this place. It is located in a quant building and has a very homey charm. Everyone was very friendly and they had a great selection of bridesmaid dresses. We worked with Andi, and she was fantastic. We found our dresses right away, even in the color that I had wanted and they matched the discount I would have gotten if I got the girls dresses where I purchased my bridal gown. The dress order was easy, even for my out of town bridesmaids. Some of them even got their dress altered there and thought they were good. I would recommend checking out this place!

I felt like I was on "Say Yes to the Dress"!
Just saying that Wolsfelt has been wonderful -all the way around -is not nearly enough. The moment I walked in the door was the first moment I truly felt like a bride - everyone treated me and 'my two moms' like royalty!
Michelle, my consultant, was everything I could ask for in a bridal consultant. She made me feel more special than I ever thought imagineable.
My alterations process was a breeze - I had several changes to the dress that I chose to make, and Sharon and the alterations staff made suggestions based on their experience while still letting my vision come true. I couldn't have been happier with the final result, and the dress was indescribably beautiful!!!

From the homey decor and comfortable environment to the exclusive selection and budget-friendly pricing, I would recommend this place hands down to every bride I ever speak with.

Wolsfelt's Bridal is just amazing. As soon as I got engaged, I knew I wanted a Pronovias dress. Although I was planning on trying a couple other boutiques that carried Pronovias dresses, my mom and I took a chance and drove to Wolsfelt's.

We fell in love with the store, our consultant Jackie, and my gorgeous Pronovias dress. Being a bigger girl, I had been worried about not fitting in samples or not being able to find something I liked. Jackie made me feel comfortable immediately, and pulled all kinds of fabulous dresses for me to try. I fell in love with my Pronovias dress the moment I put it on - that was it!

Alterations were a bit tricky, because I live in NC and the wedding was in IL. My final fitting was the Tuesday before the wedding. I was nervous - but I put it on and it was just perfect! Carmen did all the alterations on my dress and made it fit perfectly.

Wolsfelt's can even help you find your perfect bridesmaids dress, tuxedos, mother of the bride dress - everything. They even do photography and invitations! Wolsfelt's does it all.

I would recommend Wolsfelt's to a bride in a heartbeat. They helped me find my dream dress, yours could be there too!

My experience at Wolsfelt's was AMAZING! They were so helpful and very easy to work with. I walked in and had no idea what I wanted my dress to look like. As i tried on quite a few dresses I finally had an idea in my head. I went to a few other bridal salons to look at their dresses I found the one I wanted and immediately went back to Wolsfelt's and asked if they could order it. Of course they could!!! When my dress came in I had to have it altered and the people that helped with that did an AMAZING job. My dress was everything I ever dreamed of. We also got our bridesmaids dresses there. Again all my girls enjoyed working with them and they made the entire experience stress free. I would definitely recommend them!!!!

I was a plus size bride and had gone to a few bridal salons and was told they only had 1 or 2 dresses in my size. After being severely disappointed a friend recommended wolsfelts and I called and told them my size and asked if they would have my size, they immediately reassured me that they would not have a few but a ton of options. And did they deliver I tried on 10 gowns (only 10 because I limited it, but they had at least 20 I could try on that day.) Laurie was amazing and made me feel like the smallest most beautiful bride. I love my dress and wish so could wear it all of the time! Some are pricey but well worth the money!

The best!! I have nothing but great things to say about Wolsfelt!! I had Jackie as my consultant and she was amazing! She listened to what I liked and what I didn't like. She didn't force me into a dress if I didn't like it before I tried it on. I also worked with Donna in the tuxedo department. She is a joy to work with. She was very approachable as well as easy to get ahold of with any questions we had. I also had Sharon as my seamstress in the Alterations. She was so much fun to work with. She would listen and read my body language if I was not happy and she made sure that I was happy before everything was said and done.

I bought my dress here after many recommendations from coworkers. I went during their annual end-of-season sale and got my dress (worth an astonishing $1600) for the steal price of about $400. The woman who did the alterations on the dress did an unbelievable job and even after removing beading from the top half of the dress, you could not even see a hint of a difference. She did a great job of explaining the complicated bustle to my maid of honor so she was able to help me keep it up on the big day. Got my veil from here as well. Highly recommended. Difficult to find, but very well known locally!!

Such an amazing selection, a great group of people working there and flexible with everything-they special ordered my bridesmaids dresses here as I found them at another store and they didn't usually carry them. The alterations on my dress were perfect as well. The only downfall is that they aren't open on Sundays and Mondays.

I was thrilled with the services provided by Wolsfelt's Victorian Bridal. The friendly staff helped me to pick the dress of my dreams on my very first visit. I could not have been happier with my selection. Michelle, my bridal consultant, knew exactly how to add detail to my dress and pick the perfect veil and jewelry accents .

I also purchased all of my bridesmaids' dresses from Wolsfelt's. I loved the variety of colors and the quality of the fabric with the dresses I chose. The fitting process worked well for everyone involved.

From bridal gown to bridesmaids' dresses, I felt that every detail was well taken care of. The Wolsfelt's family goes above and beyond to provide a wonderful bridal experience for all. Thank you!

A pleasure to work with! I found the perfect dress just after trying on 10 dresses! They are very personable and nice to work with. Help you pull dresses by the style you explain that you like. They are a family owned business and are not pushy towards any sale. They are located in a neat old house looking building. I like them because they are one of a kind! I also got my bridesmaid dresses from them and they turned out perfect! They do alterations there for you (but you don't have to have them done there) but they do a fabulous job! They also sell bridal accessories and shoes!

I chose my wedding gown provider based on reviews I received from friends and family and was very pleased that Wolsfelt's was not a "mega mall" type of franchise business. Because it is family owned, the service they provide is really personalized. From the day I tried on my first gown until the day I picked it up for my wedding, the staff a Wolsfelt's was kind, professional, and caring. I couldn't have chosen a better venue!

Wolsfelt's was the second, and last bridal boutique I visited. While I had a great experience at the first boutique, I just didn't get "that" feeling about any of the dresses. We scheduled an appointment for a Saturday, anticipating a bit of a high stress, fast-paced experience. They were certainly busy, but I didn't feel rushed or pressured during my appointment. Laurie was GREAT - she asked about what I had in mind, pulling dresses that fit with my vision, and suggesting others, without being pushy. In the end, not only did I get my wedding dress from Laurie, my bridesmaids and my mom got their dresses from Laurie as well. I am not into veils, head pieces or other hair art and there was NO pressure for me to get those. Even after Wolsfelt's had the sale, we received great customer service. We ordered bridesmaid dresses very close to wedding date and they made it happen....alterations and all!

Speaking of alterations, Carmen is AMAZING!!! My dress fit absolutely perfectly after alterations. Carmen was incredibly creative with the bustle. I would have had no idea what I wanted that to look like. It was just perfect.

I loved Wolsfelt's pre- and post- sale...got a big hug and help getting my dress into the car when I picked it up! Thank you all for a great experience.

P.S. Best shop mascot behind the counter!

I have two daughters. Both of my girls purchased their dresses from Wolsfelt's Victorian Bridals. My oldest purchased her dress 3 years ago and we were so pleased with the dress, price and quality that when my youngest was looking for a dress she only wanted to go to Wolsfelt's. Stepping into the shop is like stepping into a high end showroom. However, the prices are very down to earth. The selection of dresses is so large that we were able to find exactly what my daughter wanted in one appointment. They are also so clever to have promotions during the Holidays that it was worth the trip to go during the Easter Holiday for her dress. She got to find eggs that had different discounts in them. People at the shop are so helpful and easy going that the appointment was so much fun. I feel bad that I have run out of daughters, because it was such a great experience. I would really recommend taking a ride to Wolsfelt's for your dress.

I got my dress at their sample sale in July and could not be happier. I had picked a ton of dresses out (including custom made ones) and I never felt like the saleslady was pushing me towards the more expensive ones. The dressing rooms are a little bizarre (since they only have heavy curtains) but I loved my experience anyway. I also got my veil and headband from there during one of their many sales.

I didn't like that I couldn't take pictures of the dress before I purchased it here, as I would have liked my mom to see it before I made the decision. After buying the dress, they were helpful and took it back 2 weeks prior to press it. I would recommend this dress shop to others.

Wolsfelt's was the 3rd place I went to try on dresses and I was sold within 72 hours of my first appointment! Previously, I had been tired of other places making me feel an internal obligation, like I had to make a decision by the end of the appointment.

Jackie was patient, creative, friendly and not pushy! When I decided I liked a dress better than a previous one, she took it away knowing I had a better option in mind, it kept my mind clear as I had a few dresses to try on. We had a private area for guests to watch me in my dresses without going out to be by girls in the rest of the shop (which in the past had resulted in other girls wanting to try on my top contenders and not having them back from "their turn").

When my dress came in, it was perfect and I was extremely happy! Their alterations department was very helpful. Jackie was very understanding when I looked their for bridesmaid dresses and decided to go with a brand carried by another store.

I would recommend ANYONE to go and try their dresses. I wish I could go through the experience again!

The staff at Wolsfelt are absolutely wonderful. They work with you, helping you find the perfect dress. The woman I worked with pulled out a dress that I had no interest in wearing and LOVED it. She let me stand there for an hour - as I was making sure this was THE dress. They listen to your needs and wants and make it all happen for you. The lady I worked with during alterations was wonderful as well. I tried on my dress about a month before the wedding, it fit but was a bit snug. I decided to lose weight and come to find out when I picked up the dress the day before the wedding it was a little too big. She fixed it immediately - I walked out with it. If you want personal attention this is the place to go!!

I had been to a couple of stores previous to making an appointment with Wolsfelt's. Obviously I hadn't found the dress or experience I was looking for until my appointment at Wolsfelt's. The service I received was great from the time I first entered the shop until the day I picked up my dress. I felt that the associates really listened to what I wanted and ensured that they would help me find whatever I was looking for. They also made sure to include my sister and mother who ended up having just as much fun as I did. Every time someone I know gets engaged I tell them to go to Wolsfelt's for their dress and bridesmaids dresses. They have tons of dress selections that are in affordable price ranges. I not only bought my dress, but I bought my shoes, veil and headpiece. It was definitely a tailor-made one-stop shop. Also, you have to stop by the little tea room that is right next door. Very cute and tugs at the strings of the little girl in us. Thanks for everything Wolsfelt's!! One of my most important days of my life was complete with your help!

I found my dress on the first day I went looking! I walked in and told the person helping me what I was looking for and she brought me a few dresses. The second dress I tried on was "the one." She listened to what I thought I was looking for but also what I wanted the end look to be. The dress I ended up buying was not what I initially had in mind but it was THE PERFECT dress for me. I felt absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. The fittings and alteration process was easy. They did a really great job to make my dress fit perfectly.

Wolsfelt was great to work with. I had a limited time to get my dress and bridesmaid dresses and they were awesome and helping with that. The seamstress that I worked with did a great job with my dress which had a very difficult hem and it looked beautiful when I picked it up for the big day. They also did a great job with helping me find bridesmaid dresses that would come in fast enough in time for the wedding and stayed on top of the order to make sure everything was perfect. Thank you!

Wolsfelt's Victorian Bridal is where I found both my wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses. Their dresses are gorgeous, and alterations were affordable. I was very pleased with their service, but my favorite part was that each time I returned, my consultant remembered my name and asked how I was doing.

Laurie and Carmen of Wolsfelt's couldn't have made me look or feel any better than they did for my wedding day.


I absolutely HATED bridal gown shopping and spent more time on that than ANY of my other wedding arrangements. I visited over 10 stores and tried on probably more than 100 gowns (I am NOT exaggerating!).


Somehow Laurie just felt what I needed, what suited my figure, and what would be the most flattering. My Pronovias (Melbourne, Spring 2010) gown was absolutely stunning. I felt beautiful in it and I received many compliments. Most importantly, since I was so difficult to shop for, Laurie figured out the unique touch that I needed, as I was demanding on some specific requests and intricacies.


Carmen, the alterations specialist, customized my gown beautifully. She made sure that every square millimeter fit me like a glove and that all the tailoring was perfectly suited for my shape.


Wolsfelt's is an excellent boutique in that it has an amazing selection for everyone's budget, has a unique touch for detail, is very accomodating, and the staff is friendly and not conceited. I wanted an upscale experience, and I got it without any unnecessary hoops to jump through.

I am SO thankful to Laurie, Carmen, and Wolsfelt's!

Wolsfelt's is wonderful. Two of my best friends and I got married the same summer, and all three of us got our dresses as Wolsfelt's. It's so nice to get personalized service, and the woman who helped me tried to listen very closely to what I was looking for and what I didn't like about the ones I tried on. The alterations were done exactly right. I really have no complaints! They even gave us advice about the tux shirt when we brought over a shirt and vest for the groom to compare against my dress (and they took the time to get my dress out). Wonderful service!

Our wedding was June 27, 2009, and we went to Wolsfelt's late September of 2008. I had found them online, and I immediately wanted to visit the store. I knew that I'd find exactly what I was looking for. I went dress shopping with my mom and cousin (one of my bridesmaids). My consultant Andrea was extremely helpful and professional, and we got to meet the owners that day as well. After trying on about 7 dresses, I found my dream dress and forgot about the others that I had tried on. We purchased it that day, and the store was very helpful. We had the funds set aside for my dress, but they still offered us credit options (which would have helped if we weren't prepared). We came in with a budget, and Andrea helped us stick to that. When I went back subsequently for 3 dress fittings, the entire staff was extremely helpful. My seamstress Sharon was amazing! She created the most seamless bustle in history. In fact, when I went to pick up my gown, we had to get someone from alterations to help us find where she had sewn in the loops. The gown was amazing, and my guests were floored.

I absolutely loved everything about my experience. The staff are warm, experienced, and kind as well as being extremely professional. They modified the design of my dress slightly for me (moving a bow from the front to the back) in addition to the regular fitting, and each step was a joy. I would recommend them to anyone as their selection is good but they are also attentive to quality dresses and quality service.

I got my wedding gown at Wolsfelts, and we also got our bridesmaid dresses there as well. An appointment is necessary, and my consultant, Jen, was fantastic! She found tons of dresses within my budget, and brought me all kinds of different styles and shades of white & ivory for me to try. She was great at finding dresses that fit my body type, and my height, and she even found 'petite' dresses for me - the one I ended up buying needed NO alterations. (Not even hemming... the first thing I have not had to hem!) It was perfect for me and my style!

I showed Jen a photo of a dress we had found at David's Bridal that we liked, but didn't have the color we liked. She found several dresses of similar style for my girls to try on, in the right color. We ended up finding a similar style dress - but better! The prices were good, customer service was outstanding.

I would recommend Wolsfelts to anyone!

Exactly what I expected dress shopping to be. My consultant has worked there for 30 something years and knew not only what would look best on my body, but what kind of things they had in stock. She helped pick some dresses as did I and then helped me in and out of them to look the best. Of course the ones she picked looked amazing and mine didn't look so hot. I ended up going with one that she had picked after listening to what I was looking for and finding the perfect dress.

Wolsfelt's. Amazing. I met Dawn and Vicky about 4 years ago for my sister's wedding and was completely blown away. I knew that for my day, I had to have them as a part of it!

Not only do they have the most beautiful gowns, but they have the BEST customer service. I work in the wedding business as a floral event designer for one of the top florists in Central Illinois, so I know who is good, and who I want to work with. Wolsfelt's is absolutely who you want to work with. They take care of every tiny detail, and put so much passion into it. This is what they love to do, and you can see it in their every move. Out of every vendor that I have worked with for my wedding, which is just a short week away, Dawn and Vicky, by far, were the absolute best! Since I work with brides on a constant basis, it was hard to feel like a bride, until I stepped foot into their shop. And Carmen, the best seamstress I have ever worked with, is not only so extremely talented, but so kind hearted, that my family considers her a part of ours. The entire team at Wolsfelt's is a part of our family.

I live about 2 hours away, and would make that trip every day to see those girls! I even had the pleasure of meeting Matthew Christopher, an insanely talented wedding gown designer, when I was there for my first fitting! I am marrying a Major in the Air Force, and will need Air Force Ball gowns, and I know I will make a trip back from South Carolina to get my dresses at Wolsfelt's! When you want a beautiful gown for your special day, or even know someone who needs anything for a special occasion, please, please, please go to Wolsfelt's!

A friend told me about this independent bridal shop and it was well worth the hour drive each way from where I live to Aurora. I purchased my wedding dress here and found my bridesmaid's dresses here as well. I brought several pictures of dresses I liked for myself and our sales rep spent time going through them all and then choosing dresses that were similar. The very first dress she had me try on was the one I ended up purchasing for only about $800 before alterations, which are also done on site. The staff was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. I could not be any happier with the service and the beautiful dresses!

Being a bride with extra curves is difficult. I visited all of the normal wedding stores, Davids and House of Brides and was not impressed with the quality of gowns they sold. Wolsfelt was a totally different experience. They have a huge selection of gowns and the staff there is extremely helpful in talking you through the entire process and helping you find the perfect gown. Alterations were also extremely affordable and made my dress fit beautifully. I felt extremely comfortable and beautiful in my wedding dress. I would definitely return there for any additional formal gown needs in the future.

Finding a dress was the most stressful part of my wedding planning process. I looked at over 20 stores in the Chicagoland area and was so happy after I found Wolsfelt’s Bridal. The staff is incredibly friendly and the selection is huge! I worked with Heather and she made me feel so calm and confident that we’d find the right one. She was right! She helped me find my dream dress, accessories and my bridesmaid dresses. Their merchandise is high quality at an affordable price. I highly recommend Wolsfelt’s!

My mom and the majority of her family have purchased their wedding dresses at Wolsfelts, so it was only natural for me to do the same! I brought in pictures of what I was looking for and the staff was extremely helpful; the very first dress they pulled ended up being the one I purchased!

Let me say I am totally in love with my dress; I would wear it all the time if I could! I got compliments on it during my entire wedding day. It's gorgeous, affordable, and very me.

The only slight hiccup was that on the day of the wedding we couldn't find the bustle. My bridesmaids ended up safety pinning it so it wasn't a big deal. I know my seamstress, Carmen, was extremely sweet and very hard working, so I'm sure we just missed it somewhere in the folds of the dress.

Overall, I absolutely loved my entire experience with Wolsfelts and would definitely recommend!

I came here after trying out some chain dress stores that never made me feel completely confident as a bride. I'm not too much of a girly-girl and have never been much of a shopper, so I wasn't completely in my element and did not know what I wanted. When I came into Wolsfelt's I saw a dress on the mannequin that was beautiful! At my appointment, I requested to try on this dress. This was over a year ago, so I could be wrong, but I believe the lady who helped me was named Andrea. She was truly helpful and even helped me to understand what I wanted! I left my first appointment deciding between the dress on the mannequin and another very similar dress. I brought my parents and son with me on my second appointment and ended up choosing the other dress because it just seemed to be more "me". My dress was from Essense of Australia and every time I looked at it online, I felt confident about my choice. The rest of my experience with Wolsfelt's was very pleasant including my dress fittings, and buying other accessories there (shoes, bra, slip). The place itself is very unique and made me feel much more excited about choosing my wedding dress. I am very pleased with my decision to go with Wolsfelt's and would definitely recommend them!

I was afraid the beautiful gowns at Wolsfelts would be out of my price range, but my consultant did everything in her power and we found the perfect dress that fit my budget. It was my first and only dress shopping stop. Everyone was super nice and they have a sweet old golden retriever who greets you. A wonderful shopping experience!

I got my wedding dress at Wolsfelt's Bridal, and I couldn't be happier! I went to several other bridal salons in the area before I went to Wolsfelt's--and truthfully there is just no comparison in terms of dress selection and customer service.

They have plenty of gorgeous dresses and amazing bridal designers to choose from--much better than I had seen elsewhere. Everyone in the store was so considerate. I never once felt rushed or pressured to buy a dress. I worked with Nicole, who was super sweet and knowledgeable. She helped me order my dress along with a fully custom veil to match and also helped my bridesmaids try on dresses during the appointment too.

I'd absolutely recommend Wolsfelt's to any bride. They know their stuff and will work with you to make sure you find exactly what you want for your big day.

My daughter purchased her wedding gown at Wolsfelts in January 2010. The entire experience was amazing. We worked with Jackie who took time to listen to my daughter's preferences and brought in a variety of gowns for her to try on. There was a great variety from which to choose. After about three or four dresses, Erin found the one she loved. She was then able to quickly go through the other dresses to see if the dress really was "the one". It was! The dress arrived in plenty of time for alterations. Sharon, who did all of the alterations did a fabulous job and the dress fit perfectly. The dress arrived about five months before the wedding but remained at the store until the week of the wedding. This was a relief to us.
We loved our experience. Everyone was very professional and took great care to make the experience special for the bride. We could not have found a better salon to meet our needs.
I noticed in reading other reviews that some brides complain that the tags are cut out of the dresses and some people took exception to that. Personally, I think it made it easier for the bride to find the dress that was right for her. You weren't encumbered by a label but rather trying to make certain that the dress flattered your figure. Once the dress was purchased they willingly told the bride who the designer was.
We would highly recommend them to everyone. We found the prices reasonable and found a large selection of dresses to meet any budget.
Kudos to Wolsfelts! They made an overwhelming process fun.

Every bride in the Chicagoland area has GOT to try Wolsfelt's! It is worth the trip to get it right the first time!

Everyone at the shop is SOO nice that you almost want to invite them to your wedding! Heather was the salesperson who helped me pick my dress and she was wonderful!!! Also the sweet golden retriever in the store that comes to greet you is also a plus!

I am a size 16 bride and everyone knows the samples are all size 10- but Heather had a GREAT selection of dresses for me to try on and we even were able to modify and customize the dress I chose. I did not want a strapless gown, so Wolsfelts had the designer customize the dress to make straps and it looked beautiful!!

Of course you want the dresses to be be cheaper, but for the quality and style- we were happy paying under $1500 for dress, taxes, alterations etc. It was within our budget.

They also went as far as custom ordering my headpiece and veil- everything worked well.

They were also very flexible in making arrangements to pick the dress up on a Tuesday since my wedding was on a Friday.

I would go over and over again to the store to buy dresses! Thank you Wolsfelts for a wonderful purchasing experience!!

I purchased my dress at Wolsfets just shy of a year before my wedding. We originally worked with Genny who did an amazing job! We actually purchased my dress of the rack and it was such a great deal-and fit me just about perfectly. I only had to have one alteration to bring in the top of the dress. Everything with they went so smooth. When I had found my dress i described what i had been thinking for my bridesmaids and within a minuet she was back with exactly what i described! So in one day I was able to purchase all dresses for my wedding! I have to say that they only reason that i gave them a 4.5 on service is because occasional when I would go back to try on my dress i would get another woman, who i was not pleased with at all. She did not show me or my family that top quality service until Genny who really did a fantastic job. They also do any alterations right there - the woman that work down there do an amazing job. When you get your dress it is just perfect, and they really are try professions when looking and finding any small flaws to the dress and fixing it.
I couldn't have been more pleased!

I loved that they had so many different services offered from their location. Also, for a more conservative girl who doesn't like dresses that are backless and with a neckline to their navel, they offer dresses that are still stylish and becoming. I found a dress that I loved at another boutique, but went in for bridesmaids dresses. They didn't carry my particular wedding dress yet, but because I was getting bridesmaid's dresses with them, they would find my dress, and get me a discount for their ordering it for me. The seamstress they have on hand did wonders with the alterations. I highly recommend a visit.

I had such a wonderful experience from beginning to end. I love fashion and was looking for a unique gown that was elegant and had the "wow" factor without having to take out a second mortgage to afford it. Wolsfelt's is the only bridal salon that I had visited that had the selection of non- "cookie cutter" dresses, and I loved that we had our own private room to try on the gowns. After selecting the dress of my dreams, my seamstress Carmen was the cutest, most pleasant woman, and she nailed the alterations on the first try. I would definitely recommend Wolsfelt's to anyone looking for a unique, reasonably priced gown.

After shopping at about 4 other bridal stores, I fell in love with the first dress I tried on at Wolsfelts Bridal. I tried on about 10 dresses anyway just to be sure I didn't find anything else there I liked better. I received so many compliments on my dress at the wedding. They were easy to work with, I had to do some fittings way before and last minute due to being out of town. But they got it done no problems. I didn't give a 5 for value because I thought they were a little pricy. Their accessories were pricy as well, but very beautiful.

I went to aprox 10 bridal shops before finding Wolsfelt’s . Everyone always says usually the dress you get is one of the first ones you see. That was not the case for me but I have always been the indecisive type. I actually found my dress at another shop, that I will not name, but was so dissatisfied with their customer service that I did not feel confident and comfortable making such an important purchase with them. I had been to Wolsfelt’s in my bridal search and was very impressed with their customer service and the shop itself. Everyone in the shop was very helpful and friendly. I also liked the idea that alterations were done on the site there and that they were open to altering the dress in any way that made you happy. This was something that stood out in my mind as some bonus because some places will only alter a dress as they see fit. Wolsfelt’s did not carry the dress I fell in love with at the other shop but they did carry the designer. Wolsfelt’s was therefore able to directly order the specific dress I wanted since they carried the brand. They were very accommodating. The only drawback is that the shop is very far for most that live in the Chicago area. It does get to be a bit of a drive when you have to go for your fittings. I will say this however, that is how good the shop is. I chose to drive about an hr out of my way because I loved the shop so much. If you are in your bridal gown search, and can stomach the drive, this is definitely a place worth checking out.

Wolsfelts was the perfect answer to something different and unique. I had looked at dresses at a number of larger "department stores" and wasn't pleased with the selections because I felt they all looked the same. Wolsfelts was new and different and a family owned store so the service was very personal. They took care of everything from the alterations to the ironing and pressing and storing of my gown after the wedding. They also provide bridesmaids dresses and mother of the brides and groomsmen tuxs. Although I only used them for my wedding gown, I would recommend their service for all it.

Ginny is the bestest in the world!!!! She went above and beyond, found THE most perfect dress for me, and was just so amazing every step of the way. I wasnt planning on spending as much as I did (trying to do the whole wedding on a tight budget) but the dress was just too perfect to pass up! And the funny thing is that I wasn't even going to try it on! I wasn't sure it was the right style for my body type looking at it on the hanger, but Ginny asked me to try it on for her, and I fell in love the minute I stepped into it! It took some convincing to take it off!!! I don't plan on getting married again, but I refer everyone I meet that is even thinking about getting married to Wolsfelt's and tell them to ask for Ginny!!!

My mom and I only looked at a few bridal stores before we came here, but we didn't need to go anywhere else. This bridal store was a beautiful, vintage shop full of every style and design of gown you could be looking for. They had huge selection and all the dresses were gorgeous.
YOU MUST MAKE AN APPOINTMENT before you come in to look at dresses as it is a small shop and after you show your bridal associate pictures dresses you like and describe the overall feel of the wedding and what you're looking for, they choose dresses for you to try on. The rooms are beautiful and comments about each dress you try on help your staffer to find you even more dresses you will be sure to love. We know over three or four brides personally who have found their dress here after we told them about it! It is really far out of the way, but this shop is worth it if you are looking for beautiful and unique dresses. Their seamstresses were wonderful and fixed my dress perfectly as well. They even sewed on a beaded adornment for me and we also found our jewelry items here. Although we ended up spending more than we budgeted, (they do carry a lot of gowns that are a bit more pricey), the experience and the dress I found were amazing! I would highly recommend this shop!

My wedding dress, the bridesmaid dresses and the tuxedos were purchased at Wolsfelts. Although we had some kinks with the bridesmaid dresses (designer issues), the staff at Wolsfelts was very helpful and made sure everything turned out perfectly. Jackie, my bridal consultant, was the best I could ask for. She made the experience of picking out a dress fun and every detail throughout the process was explained. She made me very comfortable and was always so friendly to my family. Donna in tuxedos was so patient and helpful. My husband could not pick out the color of his tux or his vest/tie and she went along with our 15,000 visits to the shop and she got us every sample he requested. When the wedding came around, she was prompt in getting different sizes sent to our hotel and she just made sure everything was just right. I didn't even know about Wolsfelt's until a week before I went dress shopping and I am so glad I found them - Wolsfelts is a gem in Aurora!

I loved my experience at Wolsfelt's Bridal. I had shopped for a month looking for the perfect dress and I found it here. They knew exactly what I was looking for and made me feel like a special bride. The experience was amazing.
I got all of my accessories here also like veil and jewelry, they have an amazing selection and I found perfect pieces to go along with my dress and my wedding!!!
My mother also went shopping here and found that perfect dress to go along with my wedding and for her body style. They had a great selection for mother of the brides.
Once I got my dress in, the alteration process started and Wolsfelts does all the alterations in their downstairs section of the building. Martha my seamstress was GREAT!! She did an absolutely prefect job fitting my dress to me and making me look beautiful. I would recommend Wolsfelt's to anyone looking for an AMAZING bridal experience. This place has everything a bride could ask for.

I went searching for the perfect dress at many boutiques, but found it at Wolsfelt. They have a very large selection of bridal gowns, bridesmaids dresses, mother dresses, etc. They were honest with me as I was trying on several dresses, telling me which were flattering and which were not (something I truly appreciated!). I also ordered my bridesmaids' dresses through them. One thing I wasn't crazy about is that they didn't let you take pictures of any dresses, unless you purchased them.

All of us had our dresses altered through Wolsfelt also and they did a great job. They didn't cut the material off of the bottom of my dress until I approved the length (another thing I was grateful for - I have heard horror stories about bad hems!). One thing I will say is that a couple of my bridesmaids' were late for their fitting appointments (we called and told them we were going to be late) and the seamstresses were very rude to us. I understand that they were busy, but if you work in customer service, you cannot take things out on your customers. Wolsfelt will hold on to your dress until a few days before the wedding, which is great and something not everywhere does. I would definitely recommend Wolsfelt to anyone looking for a beautiful wedding gown.

If you are engaged to be married and in the process of looking for your wedding dress, then you have to go to Wolsfelt's! I grew up in the western suburbs and have had quite a few friends (including both of my cousins) find their dresses here, so I knew it would be on my list of dress shops to visit. I had gone to maybe three other appointments before Wolsfelt's so I knew what I was looking for by then and Lorrie, my sales consultant, was extremely helpful in making sure I found it.

My bridesmaids, mom, and I pulled some dresses for me to try on, but Lorrie found the dress that I ended up wearing on my wedding day! It was not exactly what I wanted at first, but after Lorrie showed me the most beautiful belt accessory I have ever seen, and confirmed I could change the dress to make it a sweetheart neckline, I was sold :)

The entire process, including the alterations done by Martha, could not have gone any better. The seamstress was extremely knowledgeable and fabulous at what she does - - my dress had lace and beading over the entire thing, so the alterations were kind of expensive, but well worth it in my opinion to have everything fitting perfectly by the day of.

One thing I did not like was that there are no tags in the dresses! I assume they do this because they don't want you to find the same dress cheaper elsewhere, but I loved my dress so much, I could care less if it was from a collection from a few years ago. Either way, I think the lack of transparency there is kind of strange. The shop is also kind of far from where I live in the city, but the hours and staff were so accommodating that I did not mind making the drive to go see and try on my dress :)

Wolsfelt's was recommended to me by a friend of mine who also got her dress there. She raved about their excellent service, so I decided to go. They were the first place that I decided to look at. Wolsfelts is a small boutique that feels very home-y. Everyone is super nice there and they really take care of you. I tried on two dresses and found one that I absolutely loved, but it was a bit out of my price range. Not ridiculous, just more than I intended to spend. I decided to go look around at other bridal stores, but in the end could not stop thinking about that dress! I went back and decided to purchase that one. I also chose bridesmaid dresses from there that were just beautiful. Now, if you are looking for cheap dresses, you won't really find those here. Even though you pay a bit more than you would in a chain bridal store, the excellent service and quality of the dress is so worth it! I would definitely recommend Wolsfelts to anyone!

Wolsfelts came highly recommended. This salon has been used in my family for many years, my mother, aunts and cousins all found their dresses or dresses for the bridal party there. As in any process involving women and weddings, we had a few bumps, but with those bumps I was comforted by the consultant I used, Dawn the owner and a little rearranging with the alteration team. I couldn't have been happier, even with the tiny bit of drama! I felt beautiful, and would recommend others to look at their collection.

I LOVED my dress, it was unique as I could find it nowhere but Wolsfelts. (And I did look!) I worked with Andi on picking out my dress and she was great. I told her a basic style and she helped me narrow it down. Everything came in much quicker than anticipated but that was better than late. I had a couple of alterations, I did think those were a little pricey however. There was a little bit of a sales pitch to come back, but nothing over the top. I did leave to go to two other stores to try on dresses and ended up back at Wolsfelt's. All in all, I would recommend them.

The ladies at Wolsfelt’s were wonderful. My fiancé and I decided on a shorter engagement so I was in a bind to find a dress. I did not realize that most dresses had to be ordered far in advance and that there would be rush fees. I tried on the most beautiful dress at Wolsfelt’s. It fit perfectly and did not need any alterations. They let me buy that dress so I knew I would have it and wouldn’t have to pay any extra fees. I was also impressed with the wide variety of sizing. I was a size 14 and was worried there wouldn’t be anything in my size to try on but there was a wide selection of dresses that really fit me.

We got my wedding gown, my rehearsal dinner dress, mother of the bride dress, all of my bridesmaid dresses, and the tuxes from Wolsfelts. They were all very helpful anytime we went in the bridal salon. Wolsfelts has a great stock of dresses and tuxes to choose from, we were very pleased with all of the selections. I do think that their prices are a little high all around, but having many services (wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, mother dresses, tuxes, invitations, shoes, etc.) in one location kind of makes up for it.

It's definitely a more pretentious bridal salon. I wouldn't go without an appointment. However, I had one consultant dedicated to me for as long as I wanted and that was fabulous. Laurie was great and definitely knew what she was doing. They had a HUGE selection. She actually picked out the dress I fell in love with and bought even though on the hanger I was really uncertain. She definitely did not pressure me into buying. I knew I got a discount for buying that day, so my mom and I went to lunch and then came back which was nice.
They don't like to tell you the name of the designer, though after I purchased it, it wasn't a problem. They also don't want you to take pictures and my mom really argued for that one-- since a dress I had loved at another store, looked awful in photographs. She never said "yes" but she just sort of went downstairs for a minute and we snapped a few photos. The dress came in when they said it would. They did do an amazing job on alterations. Alterations are expensive no matter where you go, but I didn't feel like I over-paid and it really did fit perfectly. There was an inner strap (almost like a really wide bra strap) which was a huge help since I had lost a little weight. I had a million compliments on the dress and really felt beautiful in it. It was incredibly well-made and I actually felt that way about most of their dresses.

Loved my dress! It was beautiful & I had so many people comment. The one thing I was upset about is when I called the place to schedule an appointment to just look at dresses, I told them I was coming from 3 1/2 hours away and they acted as if that was stupid or something. So they were not the friendliest at times. I still love my dress though!

I loved my dress and got it at a trunk show there for 15 percent off. They do keep very busy but will try to get you in when you need it. They do call you quite often until you make an appt. THey have many many styles, lots of jewelry and a wonderful tea room next door. I suggest checking it out!!

I purchased both my wedding gown and my bridesmaids' dresses from Wolsfelts. I was happy with everything about my wedding gown, including the shipping time and all my appointments. However, my bridesmaids' dresses were a different story. My bridesmaids are located all over the U.S., so they had to call in their measurements to the store. The store did not order the correct size of dress for ANY of my five bridesmaids; instead, they ordered one or two sizes above whatever the bridesmaid said her dress size was. For example, my wedding dress was a size 0, and they ordered my matron of honor, who is only one or two sizes above me, an 8, rather than the 4 she said she usually wears. This caused all the girls to have to pay for extreme alterations in order to make the dresses fit. I don't know if they were thinking better safe than sorry or what, but women know what size dress they wear, and the store did not take their suggestions.

Wolsfelt's was great! The consultant helped me find the perfect dress and let my family and friends help in the process. I chose it in one visit! I had a different consultant when it came to choosing bridemsaids dresses, and she was wonderful too! Very helpful and friendly. Wolsfelt's is professional and helpful. They are fun to work with! They have answered any questions I had very quickly.

I looked for dresses downtown Chicago and couldn't find anything that wasn't insanely overpriced. A few of my friends recommended Wolsfelt's and I'm so glad they did. My mom and I had a hard time choosing between two dresses and they let me stay after hours to keep on debating! They were so accommodating throughout the entire experience and I was so pleased with the final product.

I purchased my wedding dress from Wolsfelts back in October. Jackie helped me find a dress. She was more than helpful and was very patient (I'm very indecisive). I called her several times to ask questions about accessories and she always promptly called me back. My dress came in a bit early, which I was happy about. The alterations went smoothly. My mom and I were a bit disappointed that they didn't think it was necessary to try on my dress the week before the wedding. Also, when trying on dress they didn't want us to take pictures. Pictures HELP me decide which dress to get. I wish they could understand that. They were a bit rigid when negotiating the price of the gown. I also found it funny when I wanted to order a velvet sash for my dress and they wanted $100.00 for the sample (that was dirty). I ended up going to JoAnn fabrics and buying a roll of velvet ribbon for $3.00- same thing. Wolsfelts location is pretty awful (they need to update the inside of it too). Driving there is a pain, but the service was good and overall I had a pleasant experience with the entire process.

I decided to get my dress here after my sister got married and purchased her gown here. I did go to other stores to try on gowns but I just didn't find my gown at any of them. While, I did receive exceptional customer service at Wolsfelt's I did feel that their prices were not as competitive as other Bridal boutiques; the fact that they don't allow you to take any pictures of yourself in the gowns to refer to when shopping around; and that they cut out the tags of all the dresses and won't tell you the model #s is a bit old fashioned and not in tune with today's informed brides. Again, I did not receive bad service here but they wouldn't budge on pricing one bit even after I bought my $3000 dress here for my mom who wanted to purchase an off the rack sample dress! I thought that was kind of ridiculous! The seamstress who did my alterations was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! SHE WAS soooooo nice and I only wish I could see her again for any other alterations I ever need :( Again, found my dress here, great customer service but old-fashioned bridal practices are kind of off-putting with today's smart brides.

I used Wolsfelts to get my bridesmaid dresses. They have a really great, large selection and are super helpful with picking dresses. My only complaint was when it came to measuring the girls for their dresses.... I felt like they really didn't know how the dress we selected fit and were just taking a shot in the dark. The dress had a flowly chiffon top piece but the lining under it was almost a mermaid cut, making it tighter in the hips/butt area. The staff seemed to have no knowledge of this. And I know what you're thinking - how come we couldn't tell? Because most of my bridesmaids were absolutely SWIMMING in the size 12 sample. So when their dresses actually came, several of them were way too tight in the lining of the hips/butt. And with 5 out of 6 birdesmaids reporting the same problem, this could not just be chalked up to weight gain. Sorry. Five people don't just gain an entire dress size in the exact same spot in 2 months. No way. And the 6th was a twig size 00 whom they dont make sizes small enough to even fit. But we complained and thankfully the staff was nice enough to let out the lining of any of the dresses free of charge.

I got a great deal on my dress, but my bridesmaids had a hard time. They insisted my girls order different sizes than they felt comfortable with, and my sister's dress came in so big we could have made her 2 dresses out of it. They were RIGID with their recommendations for sizes though, and made it seems like they were all a bunch of fatties who'd be sorry if they didn't listen to them! The dresses were just what I wanted though, and a reasonable price for my girls.

I still love my wedding dress, even now that it's all over and done with. I had had a few friends and family members recommend Wolsfelt's to me because they had gotten dresses there. I made an appointment in the evening on a day they were open later, and that was a great time to go because at one point we were the only customers there. I had about three different consultants come to give me advice when I was stuck deciding between two dresses, so I really felt taken care of. However, when we walked in they weren't the most welcoming, and even made a couple of comments that made me question whether to stay. I look a lot younger than I actually am, and the staff made a couple of comments about that and my size, which is not something I wanted to deal with when looking for my wedding dress and unfortunately it's something that still bothers me. However, they warmed up eventually and I was very happy with my dress. The fittings went really well and the alterations people were great. The only other problem I had was when it was time to pick up my dress. I was told by the alterations staff that generally dress pickup is on the Thursday or Friday of the week of the wedding, but since my wedding was on Friday, I could go and get it as early as Tuesday. I called Tuesday to arrange to pick up my dress on Wednesday, and the person on the phone acted like it was a big inconvenience for me to do that and told me that dress pickup is Thursday or Friday. When I told her that my wedding was Friday, she then had to call me back once she found out whether I was able to get it on Wednesday, reminding me that there were "lots of dresses that had to be pressed". At that point it was 8 months since I had purchased the dress, so they had plenty of warning that my wedding was on a Friday, which is a pretty typical thing! Eventually it did all work out though, and they provided lots of advice about how to care for the dress before and after the wedding, and even helped us get it in the car.

Let me start by saying I absolutely LOVED my dress. Was unique and different and fashion-forward...something I couldn't find at other bridal shops. However, the environment of Wolsfelts isn't very inviting. They have a big smelly dog, the owner's dog, that roams the store. I couldn't believe it! Thousand dollar dresses and a dog is walking around. I tried on dresses in July...and it was hot! The place was not air conditioned and I was sweating my booty off! Not how I pictured this moment to go. They did great alterations but their alterations were ridiculous! In total...we spent about $850 in making a sweetheart neckline...taking it in...putting in a different zipper and making the bustle. Be prepared...or take it elsewhere.

Laurie was fantastic and patient and helpful when I was shopping - she was willing to be flexible with her time so I could bring my mom back the next day to show her the dress. The one tiny issue was that the seamstress had said she'd save the beads that were taken off during alterations (I was going to use them to add as a finishing touch to my veil) but she forgot so we had to find something that would work last minute. The bustle of my dress held up perfectly until dancing - the places in the dress where the bustle attached that needed to be a little more secure. the material was really not heavy but my mom and i spent some time in the ladies' room trying to repair the bustle during the reception. All in all, i really liked the store and the service - worth the trip to Aurora from the city to find my perfect dress.

I used Wolsfelts for bridesmaids dresses after visiting other area bridal shops. They provided the cheaper price compared to the competition and were easy to work with. Appointments were always needed in order to ensure the best service as it does get busy there especially during the busy prom and wedding season.

Thirty years ago my mother bought her wedding dress at Wolsfelts so it felt right to buy my wedding dress from them for my May 24, 2014 wedding. My consultant, Jackie was super helpful and very attentive. She stayed within my price range and listened to exactly what I wanted for my dress (and my bridesmaids' dresses a few months later). I was told by my photographer's assistant that my dress was one of the most beautiful she had ever seen! YAY! I loved my dress and felt exactly like a princess.

The fittings were a bit more difficult. They wanted to schedule my final fitting for over a month before the wedding and when I asked to have it moved closer to the wedding the person on the phone got quite testy with me and said "Well this IS our busy season." I felt that I, as the customer and the bride, should have been treated more nicely. This was a WEDDING final fitting, not just a fitting for a prom dress. Our seamstress was helpful, although I was not entirely happy with the way the dress looked when bustled. I also requested a slightly modified sweetheart neckline (the dress originally was straight across) and it ended up dipping fully sweetheart and I felt self conscious having it so low. But overall, I am happy with the result and the dress was absolutely gorgeous.

I did not have a very fulfilling experience while wedding gown shopping here, so I did not wish to return for any reason. However, after feverishly shopping for and almost giving up on Mother of the Bride gowns, our last resort was to return to Wolsfelt's. We quickly and easily found a gown that was perfect. We chose the colors and placed the order with ease. The service was ok, but the high pressure sales environment tainted all of our experiences. Instead of giving my mom special attention, the consultant kept trying to force accessories on me since she shifted every conversation to what I "needed" and didn't already have (or really what I didn't want, therefore did not have). We were also charged a rush fee even though the estimated ship date was well within a safe time period before my wedding. The gown ended up arriving on this original ship date even with the rush fee. When we picked up the gown, they had just assumed that we were getting alterations there as well. This was not the case. When we pulled the gown out for inspection, there were stains all over it. They steamed these most of the way out for free, but offered no other compensation. This was also used as another opportunity to try and force more sales on me and not be attentive to the actual client, my mother. Overall, we were very happy with the gown, but will forever consider this shop the last, last, last resort for anything (but likely nothing at all).

The level of service does not meet what is expected if you are purchasing a couture wedding gown. Unfortunately, my dress designer cannot be found at high end boutiques or dept. stores in Chicago, so I went here to get the dress that I wanted. For spending $4,000 on a dress, I was not given the follow-up attention with fittings that you would get with a boutique specializing in couture gowns. If you are shopping for a prom dress or cheaper bridal gown, this may suffice but not for those who expect more individualized attention for a high-end purchase.

My sister had gone to Wolsfelt's for her dress, so I did as well. The initial appointment was good yet awkward - the dress selection was great and Debbie had a good handle on my vision. Negatives: She gave me dresses just under or up to $500 above my stated price range to try on (without showing me the price first), I was often standing nearly naked in front of some older relatives, and the curtains separating the dressing "rooms" were not long enough to separate them! Strangers in the next stall also got to see me in my skivvies. If she had shown me gowns closer to my price point and told me to bring a robe or provided a robe for modesty, I would have enjoyed my time more. My dress is absolutely gorgeous, but it's also over-budget and came with an awkward experience.

My dress came in on-time, but the hips needed to be let out at the seams (they told me to order this size, and my body had not changed at all) and I was not told that the bustle would be $125 to create. Letting out at the hips cost an additional $100, so I WAY over-spent on my dress, and wasn't really given any other options or told what to expect.

Overall, it was better than David's Bridal and the dress selection is lovely, but there are definitely some improvements to be made at Wolsfelt's.

The dress I got from Wolsfelts was absolutely perfect on my wedding day. The alterations were perfect and the pick up was easy. We got a great value on the dress because of a winter sale. Perfect since I knew the exact dress I wanted. While the dress quality and value were exceptional, we were not as satisfied with the quality of service we received. Since my dress was a discontinuing style and on sale, it seemed like we weren't as valued as customers. There were a lot of additional services and fees that were added to the dress that we had to carefully examine and we had to keep on track of our payment ledger very carefully since there was confusion with receipt write-ups. Also, it didn't seem that alterations and sales had clear communication with each other and weren't very professional when talking about the other (blaming and speculating over confusion). We were drastically underquoted for alterations for the gown by the sales person, so that was a shock when we actually met the seamstress. It also seemed that while the gowns were reasonably priced compared to other bridal stores, the services and extras were higher. They seemed to press additional undergarments slips and add-ons even with the highest quality structured gowns that don't need any of these things. The pressing was well worth the price, the dress came out beautifully and alterations were extremely well done and customized.

This review is a little difficult to write. Up until the moment I purchased my dress, Wolsfelt's was fabulous. The staff were friendly, accommodating, warm, fun - my consultant Ginny was just great, as were all of the other women I encountered there. But after I had paid my deposit, I felt that the customer service really fell off. They wouldn't tell me the brand of the dress I had purchased, even after it was paid in full. I hear that they never tell brides what brands they have, because they don't want brides to shop around for better prices. They insisted that I order a dress that was 3 sizes bigger than I wear because bridal sizes are so different, but when I got it...it was 3 sizes too big. They literally had to take 6 inches off of each side. It angered me because I had to pay extra for buying a "plus size" dress, then had to pay a few hundred dollars in alterations when it arrived. I'm sure this is standard bridal industry practice so that they can wring more money out of brides, but it really angered me. Then, the seamstress who did my alterations at Wolsfelts was really cold and unfriendly. No smiles, no "congratulations", not even a "you look pretty" when I got my dress on. I mean - I spent a lot of money on that dress. Would it have hurt to have provided a little customer service to me? I was seriously appalled by her treatment. I considered taking my dress to another place for alterations, but I was planning a long-distance wedding, and couldn't really afford to take the time to travel again for additional trips to find another place and have alterations done. Then, when I went to pick up the dress, they seemed put out that I wanted them to show one of my bridesmaids how to do the bustle. It didn't seem like too much to ask for them to take 5 minutes out of their day to show her what to do, but I got the feeling that it was a great inconvenience to the lady helping us.

This was the first place that I went to find a wedding gown. I made an appointment and met my mother and sister there on a Saturday. I got about 15 minutes to grab a few dresses (about 10) and felt rushed to just get the few because they said it was a start and I could go back to get some more later after I had found my "style". I had called ahead for one particular dress which they left until last to show me. I got an hour and a half to try on the 10 dresses of which some I didn't like right away but they kept trying to convince me that it looked nice. I kept saying I like this about the dress but not this can we find something else? She left and came back with 1 dress of which again was strapless. When I got there they asked what I was looking for and I said anything but strapless and 8 of the 10 dresses were strapless. I kept asking to see something else but she said that there was nothing else. What? I saw 30 dresses tried on 10 of them and there were tons upstairs and downstairs. I don't even know how many different designers in bags. As I walked out of the room to see in the big mirror I said "I like what that girl has on there." The associate said no you don't. Half joking then looked at her watch and said our time was up. I was sooooo disappointed. They had so many dresses but I think I only saw 30 or so of the bunch. I should also mention there was a trunk show of which that was all they were pushing on me. Strapless trunk show dresses that she said at the end that I may or may not be able to get once the weekend was over. Huh?? What a waste of time. I can only suggest to others to be very agressive and pushy about what you want if not they walk all over you. I am a fairly shy person so for me I found this very frusterating. They tell you no information about the dress, (which is common) but then no ball park figure for alterations. I also found them pushy about making another appointement and their other services-photography, candy, etc.

I literally found the dress of my dreams at Wolsfelt's Bridal, thanks to my stylist Andrea. Unfortunately, the dream stopped there. From my first fitting all the way to the day of the wedding, the service at Wolsfelt's was atrocious. When I tried on my dress for the first fitting, it did not fit. According to their measurements, I had gained 5 inches in my hips and waist, and 2 inches in my bust. In actuality, I had lost 10 pounds and doing cardio 4-5 days a week. The managers did very little to help the situation, and actually told me that I was probably working out wrong and my muscles had gotten bigger. By 5 inches?!? They finally basically realized that they ordered me the wrong size dress, so they ordered me a new one. All was well. When my new dress came in, I had lost another 15 pounds so it was huge (which I was expecting). Alterations were done and I was told I could pay partially now and partially later for the alterations. I go upstairs and they tell me I owe $540...the full amount. I tell them that the seamstress told me I could pay some now and some later. They told me she was wrong and that, they were sorry, but I had to pay. So I obviously had to pay. When I go to my final fitting, my sister and I notice that the clasp at the top of the dress is very loose. My sister tells the seamstress, and the seamstress says she will DOUBLE check to make sure it is fixed for the day of the wedding. I leave feeling very confident and SO excited about my dress. The day of my wedding I am zipping up my dress, and my sister is silent while she tries to clasp it. She tells me there is nothing to clasp the dress closed. I guess the seamstress did not DOUBLE check after all. So my photographer, who was amazing, comes up with the solution to tear a clasp off of a bra and sew it onto the dress. This worked great. In the meantime however, I was having a mini heart attack that I was going to have a dress that did not close. My mother called Woslfelts later to tell them what

I fell in love with a dress from Wolsfelt's that they claimed was part of their "private line." My consultant Michelle was a sweetheart, very helpful and not a pushy salesperson. However, she did not let me take photos of dresses until after I purchased one, to prevent me from shopping around for the best price. Five months later (ahead of schedule) my dress arrived and I just had my first fitting today; I took note of the brand name on the tag, which was San Patrick. After having my fitting (Martha the seamstress was kind of unfriendly and kept trying to push me toward the priciest alterations; I have yet to see her quality of work), I came home and did some Google research. As it turns out, my dress was part of the 2010 San Patrick line, which retailed for $1100 two years ago. I paid $1700 for the same dress at Wolsfelt's, two years later. Their private line is simply discontinued dresses that they continue to sell and mark the price WAY up. While I do love my dress, I feel like I was taken advantage of and paid WAY more than I should have. If you choose Wolsfelt's, be careful of their prices and do research on the dress before you buy it.

I was very upset with Wolsfelts. One, they measured me and my bridesmaids and all of the dresses were still huge when we all had our first fitting. Then we had to pay money for them to take in a ton. The seamstresses are not very friendly and do not seem to enjoy their jobs very much. My maid of honors dress ended up being horrible when we went to pick it up and we were told the seamstress never measured her shoulders. They did in fact fix them right then and there.

I was very upset with my wedding dress. They showed me how to bustle my dress at my last fitting with one of my bridesmaids, but it was not official yet. At day of pick up they handed me a piece of paper with the drawing of how to bustle the dress, but did not take the time to show my other bridesmaids or my mother. So, when it was time to bustle my dress, we could not find all the locations to put the ribbon through to bustle it. I was very upset about this. We had to end up just bustling it through one loop, so all night my bridesmaids were having to fix it.

DO NOT SHOP HERE!! When we walked in, it took about ten minutes for the woman to acknowledge us, even when we had made an appointment. This was the first shop that I went to and I bought the third or fourth dress I tried on. I had already known what I was looking for and the whole process was simple. The dress that I liked came with straps, but the woman helping me showed it to me strapless and I loved it. She said she could special order it that way for me, so we bought it. I felt that it was strange that she wouldn't tell me who designed it, which should have been my big warning sign, but we bought it anyways. A company shouldn't have to hide the designer in fear that you will price it out because their company should be selling itself. That wasn't a deal breaker and our mentality was, why wait and just get the 10% off now. Don't fall for the 10% if you buy it now ...SHOP AROUND, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! Another thing that the saleswoman told me was that if I bring my bridesmaids in, they can try on dresses next to my wedding dress, which was perfect!

So, a couple weeks later I looked over their website and picked out some bridesmaid dresses that I wanted my girls to try on. I live forty-five minutes away, so I called to confirm what dresses they carried. My sister and I planned a trip out to the store, but we only had an hour. I called the store, told them what time I would be there, when we had to leave, the style number of the dresses and my name to get my dress. When we showed up, it took five minutes to be greeted and when we did, nothing was ready. My sister and I started pulling dresses to try on and the woman kept helping us. She told us we couldn't take pictures and we almost felt watched trying the dresses on. I kept asking for her to get my dress, so we could try these on together and after about thirty minutes, she went to find my dress. She couldn't find it and said they had sold it, which they had assured me would not happen. My sister had to leave, and at a last attempt, I walked upstairs and found my dress in two minutes. Silly them, they had the wrong card! They laughed it off as though it was no big deal. At this point, we had no time left so we wasted an afternoon. So, as you can figure, I went somewhere else for my bridesmaid dresses. I don't know how I could have had better communication, so this is an obvious lack of customer service. There was no follow up of this incident and/or call to apologize.

The final straw was when I showed up to pick up my dress. I called to get an estimate on alterations, but they had to see it first to make an estimate. I was excited because I have been waiting for months to see it, and when she pulled it out of the bag, it wasn't strapless. The woman got my sheet and it said that I understood that this request was extra, which we knew, but nowhere did it say that it was coming in "as is" and alterations were going to be done at the store. (When we bought the dress, the woman said she could order it strapless, which is why we ordered it.) If I would have known that the company that was "making" the dress wouldn't make the dress the way we wanted it, I would have continued to shop around. I was obviously upset about this issue and instead of the woman having a, "Oh we messed up" attitude, she continued to show me the receipt! I left the store upset and infuriated that a company was run in this type of manner. I finally got follow up calls to try to resolve the situation, but a little too late. Why would I want to do anymore business with a company that has been so unprofessional and unaccommodating up to this point.

Wolsfelt's has poor customer service and is not welcoming. Whenever you walk into this place, it seems like they are always too busy to talk to you. Also, go to a bridal store that is not afraid to show who the designer is, because even if they have higher prices, they know that their services and employees will make your experience wonderful. This is a special time in your life and I'm very disappointed that this is the type of service that is occurring. This is a want business where the store needs the customer more than the customer needs the store. I'm sure a lot of people have had good experiences here, but don't take the chance of having the type that I had.
