The best dress experience!
The one thing I was not looking forward to during wedding planning was dress shopping. I found a dress online that I loved which led me to HCTD because they had it. They sent me different dresses on Snapchat to see if I liked those prior to my appointment and had them pulled when I got there. Aubrey and her staff are so thoughtful and it helps that the appointments are private so it’s only you and your girls. I ended up going about 3 times: my try on appointment, my alterations appointment and to pick up dress the week before the wedding. I was actually sad that I didn’t have to come back haha I would highly recommend the store to any bride who wants a dress experience she will remember!Sent on 12/09/2020

Nothing Short Of Amazing!
Aubrey and her staff are nothing short of amazing! They are there to help you every step of the way. I cannot imagine going anywhere else to get my dress or my bridesmaid's dresses. I will be sending anyone and everyone I know their direction if they need a wedding dress. Thank you so much Aubrey and the Here Comes the Dress Staff!Sent on 11/01/2020

I’ve always had a flair for dressing up and pretty things, so owning a bridal boutique seemed a natural progression from my previous career. I was working as a Litigation Paralegal for several years when I had a dream I opened a bridal boutique. It was hard to resist not making that dream come true; I mentioned it to my husband, we agreed it would be good idea and put the wheels in motion. We opened our doors in August of 2011 in a small strip mall in Valparaiso, before moving to our current home in Chesterton, two years later. Anyone who has owned a small business can likely agree, it’s a very personal attachment. I love my store and care about each and every bride I encounter. I may even surprise past brides when I remember their name years later and even the dress they wore on their special day. I’m proud of my amazing staff and their hard work and passion for what they do, it’s truly a dream job. When I’m not managing the store, I’m home with my husband, my daughters, 9 and 11, and two big dog babies. I love spending time with family, traveling, a long run or a true crime or Netflix binge.
If I haven’t met you yet, I hope you’ll visit us soon and let us share in your say yes moment!
If you've visited HCTD before, chances are we've already met. I've been working here for four years and was a customer first. I visited the boutique with a friend who found her dream dress and I instantly fell in love with the ambiance. As soon as I got home that evening, I, of course, stalked Facebook looking at all the beautiful bridal pictures and posts and came across a job posting. It almost felt meant to be. I instantly applied and had the job within a few days! Before HCTD, I worked as a Legal Assistant Clerk in a downtown law firm, which is why I think Aubrey and I connect so well; it's a legal mentality we both have. Switching careers is one of the best things I have ever done. I love the beautiful gowns, helping future brides find their dress, sharing a special moment with not only them, but their closest family and friends, it is such a fulfilling feeling. I truly enjoy just chatting with customers. I always strive to make everyone who walks through our doors feel special. I truly consider this my dream job! When I'm not working, I'm a mom of two little ones, who keep me busy and a wife of a hardworking husband.
I hope to help you feel at ease and your most beautiful on your bridal journey! See you soon!
We have had several brides get their dress at Here Comes the Dress and they rave about their experiences!
