    Loved this place!

    All I can say is wow! I had the best experience at this salon! I had a smaller budget for my dress and they worked within that budget! I ended up falling in love with a sample gown that had minor damage and the manager fixed the lace herself before I picked up the gown! She said she searched their backroom till she found the same lace! Just really went above and beyond for me and I can’t recommend them enough!

    Cannot recommend enough!


    I had the most amazing experience at Ultimate Bride and cannot recommend them enough! I ended up at Ultimate Bride because my first wedding dress (purchased from another Chicago bridal shop) was ruined during alterations. With only 2 months before my wedding, my mom called Ultimate Bride on a whim (and in a panic) to see if they could help me find a new dress, and Constantine (the owner) assured her it would not be a problem.

    When I arrived to Ultimate Bride, Amanda and Lori were SO kind, patient, accommodating, and helpful. Amanda pulled several dresses for me to try that fit the exact style I was looking for (they have an amazing selection), and Lori called the designers to make sure that those specific dresses could be rush ordered since I was in a time crunch. The very last dress Amanda pulled out for me to try ended up being a new, off the rack sample that had never been worn before, and oddly enough was my exact size! They allowed me to purchase that exact dress the day I tried it on and I was able to leave feeling SO relieved and happy. I ended up loving this dress more than my first! I also loved that alterations were in house. Their alterations team is so talented and did an amazing job on my dress – I could not have been happier with how it turned out.

    LASTLY, a glass of red wine was spilled on my dress at my wedding reception and completely stained the skirt – Diane spent nearly an hour on the phone with my mom guiding her through exactly who to reach out to and how to handle the cleaning process. We so appreciated her time and guidance!

    Every single person we interacted with at Ultimate Bride went above and beyond to make a stressful situation such a positive and fun experience. I am recommending them to all of my newly engaged friends without hesitation Truly the best of the best!
