I purchased my wedding dress from La Sposa on Addision in Chicago. It was a beautiful two piece ball gown. The price was right, quality was excellent, and styles were timeless. I actually purchased my dress 8 years ago, as I was engaged previously. After breaking the engagement I was still very attached to the dress. Finally, it was my time to wear it. It still fit perfectly and was custom made for me. I looked around at other dresses this time around but nothing compared to "the dress". The staff was knowledgeable and polite 8 years ago and sure hope that the same quality is there.
I drove by and noticed this shop. Small but you have to have an appointment, so I looked around, the 30 or so gowns on mannequins and stock, which they frowned upon...and nothing seemed to be under $1500, which wouldn't be a problem, but then I recognized a few gowns they carry, they were specifically Eden gowns that they claim are European designers, UM, no they're not...I've done my homework in this area, I have piles of magazines at home, and I can't stand being lied to! Eden gowns don't go for $1500 and up! I'm glad I didn't make an appointment because I would have totally wasted my time.
