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.
-Diane and Family

I went into Hope's not exactly sure what I would find. I was pleasantly surprised with their inventory and by how friendly the staff was. I tried on about 20 dresses and could have gone on for hours. I loved it! The sales lady was so kind and helpful. I never once felt pressured into buying anything. She was genuinely there to help me. I finally narrowed it down "the one" but I still had another appointment to go to that I didn't want to cancel on. So my family and I went to David's Bridal. What a completely different experience. I knew I had to go back to Hope's where there were great dresses and great service. I also did my alterations at Hope's. Once again fantastic service. My dress was everything I imagined and more. I felt like such a princess on my wedding day. I got so many compliments and people just raving about my dress. If you want a great selection of beautiful and up to date dresses and the most kind and welcoming staff then you have got to go to Hope's Bridal.Sent on 11/06/2017

There is no where else to go. Hope's Bridal has the best selection in Iowa. Between Atkins and Davenport they have so many dresses in so many styles. I am so happy with my gown. The fit was just perfect, the style was perfect for me, and the color was beautiful. My family just loved it and I love the fact that I could get shoes, bra cups, necklace, earrings, and veil all at the same place. I also took my dress back to have it preserved and cleaned and it came back so beautiful.Sent on 03/11/2018
