About

2021 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Hope's Bridal was started by Hope Kolsto. Hope's early experience in the bridal industry was cake baking. Sometime in 1972 she converted an empty dairy farm into her boutique began selling wedding gowns, because local brides were struggling to find opportunities to purchase bridal apparel.

The Niebuhr family bought the Boutique in 1985. Along with the business, Mark and Diane were also blessed with their first child Johanna in the same time period. Their second daughter Ariel was born in 1989, and has returned to be an integral part of Hope's Bridal. In 2000 our family was complete when our final daughter Moriah was born. As the girls grew so did our business.

We opened our Davenport location in 1993, and have expanded twice. Our hope is not just to sell a dress to a client, but to care for our clients as we get to assist them in all their wedding and formal event needs.

We truly value all the families who have trusted us with their wedding needs in the past. We look forward and appreciate the families who will trust us to take care of their wedding needs.

We invite you to share your wedding excitement with our family at Hope's Bridal.

    Amazing addition to our big day

    The entire team at Hope's was supportive and more than willing to help me find the dress of my dreams. I went to 5+ other dress stores and was absolutely blown away by the commitment Hope's had to me and my wishes. Anna was incredibly supportive and flexible with find the dress, payments, and making sure I got everything I needed when I needed it.

    Wonderfully accommodating and professional!

    I was looking for a dress that Hope's did not carry in store; however, they were able to order it for me without a problem. Susan at Hope's was so professional, kind, and accommodating when we placed our order, and I would recommend her and Hope's Bridal to everyone! She made me feel so special and reassured that my dress is in the right hands. Thank you Hope's!

    Hope's Bridal Boutique's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking time to share your experience, Samantha. We are so glad you're a Hope's bride!
