Elite Bridal is a hidden gem in Champaign, IL. My very first trip to Elite was definitely an eye-opener. As soon as you walk in you know you're in not just a store but a boutique. Where the team there is basically available to you! I mean literally if you want a Say Yes to the Dress place....well this is it! Backstory- I've been to Elite four times and constantly tried on the same dress, plus several others.
My most recent trip to Elite was quite the highlight. I felt so taken care of. Even my fiance' had a great time picking out dresses for me. The first thing they do is show you around the boutique and of course they ask for your budget. Both my consultants really led me around telling me what's available w/in my budget. Secily and Danielle were fantastic. I felt really well taken care of. I'd get up on that stage and get a good look at the dress I was in. Both consultants would ask what I liked and didn't like. I mean they really care to help you find your dream dress. My natural style kept referring back to the first dress I tried on originally on my first visit. One that I fell in love with immediately, but I wanted to make sure I saw as many as possible. So we saved "the one" for the last dress. You really feel like you're number 1 there. I got into my final dress and every girl in the store was around the stage. I got out there and just knew. All the girls were just in awe and so supportive. I knew that this was the dress. So to cap off the moment they asked me if I was saying yes to the dress and I totally said yes to the dress! On top of all the help choosing the dress, their manager there really was helpful with the financial end of the deal. I was able to put down whatever I wanted to start buying the dress. I called my mom who was buying my dress and told her. Very happy. The manager emailed my mom the contract for her to sign and set up automatic payments. My mom called me the next day and just raved how helpful the people there were.
There's no doubt in my mind that Elite is the best in Champaign! I would totally suggest to every Bride and anyone looking for a special dress or tux to head to Elite Bridal. You aren't a customer to the team there; you're family.

I loved my experience with Elite Bridal! They were very helpful and never too pushy. They really want you to be happy with your product and experience.

This was without a doubt the best wedding dress store in the area! They have a very unique selection of dresses and the best service hands down. Elite Bridal is a relaxed, comfortable environment that catered to myself and my party to make finding the perfect dress a magical experience. I'd recommend them to anyone!

I went to Elite for my first bridal dress appointment and didn't really know what to expect. As soon as we walked in the door, our consultant, Jennifer, made me feel like the only brdie in the World! She helped me figure out exaclty what I wanted in a bridal gown! With her help, I found THE GOWN!! When we came back for our bridesmaid appointment and she was just as helpful! She made the shopping experience the best I could have asked for and I am so appreciative!

Elite Bridal was the last place in Champaign that I went dress shopping at. They carry many well known designers and prices are very reasonable. They don't have a huge collection of dresses, but the ones they do have are beautiful. My bridal consultant was very helpful in pulling dresses similar to what I wanted and helping in the overall decision process. The fitting rooms are also very spacious and nice.
