Everything was absolutely pleasant at Ultimate Bride. Meghan helped me find the perfect dress. She listened and offered her advice. She took everyones visions into consideration. Maria in alterations was phenomenal. Her experience is priceless.

Great quality posted 10/21/2013

Though the dresses are on the pricey side they carry great designers and the fabrics are wonderful. I never felt like I was wearing a heavy wedding dress. My consultant was amazing and made me feel comfortable and seemed to be truly interested I finding me a dress. It was also great that the alterations and final steaming were done in house.

This is the One. posted 8/25/2013

Marina of Ultimate Bride was very patient and good in offering advice. She is a very good listener. She was never pushy and respected my indecisiveness throughout the entire process. Maria of the alterations department was very nice and patient with me too. You can tell she is very hardworking. I was so happy with the bustle she made for me. I am so happy I got my dress from Ultimate Bride and that it's still perfect after all the alterations!

Pricey, but worth it! posted 12/12/2013 (modified 12/13/2013)

My initial visit was full of emotion, as I would imagine is the case for most brides. I worked with Rachel, who helped my find my perfect dress, which couldn't have been more different that what I thought that I wanted. She was patient and really listened and it turned out to be a wonderful experience.

The fittings and alterations were also very well done. My dress fit perfectly on the day of our wedding and I couldn't have been more happy with it.

Great service posted 7/6/2013

The girl who helped me find my dress was the first person who actually LISTENED to me and what I wanted. I wasn't a very picky person, but knew what style I liked best and she went with different dresses in that style and I was able to find a dress I loved. The tailoring they did in house was amazing too. Did a great job. Also got my veil here. Beautiful. Everyone complimented me on the dress and veil.

Wonderful experience posted 3/20/2013

Everyone i worked with at Ultimate bride was amazing. they have some beautiful dresses and work with you to find one that's just perfect. They were easy to work with throughout the alteration process as well. I was initially supposed to have 3 fittings but ended up having 4 (the last one just two days before my wedding!) and the dress turned out amazingly. The quality of the alterations was great and made the dress fit perfectly. They also were very accommodating with regards to my sister's hissyfit about her bridesmaid dress alterations (that wasn't bought / altered at Ultimate Bride) and two days before my wedding were able to fix the botched alterations that were done to it.

One tip - they capped my alterations which definitely saved a lot of money in the end!

Ultimate Bride Service posted 1/25/2013

This was the first place I went to look for a dress, and I cancelled all of my appointments after going here. My consultant did an excellent job listening to my ideas and preferences. She gave me many dresses that fit my description to try on, but also brought dresses that she thought would be flattering or in line with what I already had liked. For me, the most important thing that I wanted in a dress was to find one that was as flattering as possible. As a petite woman, the consultant brought dresses that are flattering to shorter woman, and even mentioned how certain designers catered to this (Monique Lhuillier for example who also is a petite woman). I had my three sisters, my maid of honor, and mother with me, and the store made sure everyone had a place to sit and was comfortable.

You won't be disappointed. posted 12/18/2012

Everything about my experience with Ultimate Bride was positive. The receptionists who greeted me at the door each time were incredibly helpful and friendly. They made me a very last minute appointment in order to ensure everything was ready for the big day. They didn't have to do that, and I didn't even ask; they just offered. The consultants I worked with were helpful, honest, patient, and not pushy. They made the experience so fun and exciting. I didn't feel pressured, and I felt like they listened to me the entire time. I ended up with the perfect dress that fit me. I cannot say enough about the alterations department. Maria and Nami are the best. Seriously. My dress fit like a glove. It honestly looked like it was made just for me when they were finished. They did such a beautiful job. Ultimate Bride is definitely a wonderful place to go to find your dress.

Amazing selection posted 11/20/2012

Ultimate Bride has an amazing selection of gowns. I really liked my consultant too (but she no longer works there). The atmosphere is a bit snobby but I suppose it's worth it to have access to the gorgeous dresses. I was not entirely satisfied with my alterations, though. Might want to go somewhere else for alterations.

Everyone I worked with was very friendly. My salesperson was Courtney, and she was my absolute favorite salesperson I worked with at any of the 4 shops I went to. So nice and so helpful. It was the perfect balance of giving her honest opinion and letting you make your won decision. The only reason I gave it a 4 was because there were a few things I think could have been a little better in my alterations. Overall, alterations were pretty good, but there were a couple things that weren't fixed when they were supposed to be, which resulted in me having to make more trips.

I loved shopping at Ultimate Bride and my dress was amazing! I have to say Maria who did the alterations is a true genius. My photographer was amazed how my dress did not move the entire night and fit me like a glove. Not only does Ultimate Bride carry the most beautiful dresses they really know how to find the right one for you.

By far the best selection in Chicago and everyone is wonderful to work with! The alterations were almost twice what we were originally quoted but I had a lot done to my dress.

Great choices posted 9/4/2012

Every dress was classy and well made. Unfortunately Stephanie, who helped me, is no longer there. She was the best!! Regardless, good place with great people. The alterations department rocks!!!!! My dress was a 14 and by wedding time I was a 0. No problems, they were perfect!

Great help finding a sample! posted 7/23/2012

I went into Ultimate Bride prepared to walk away with a dress waaaaay over my budget- instead, the one I fell in love with was 60% off as a sample. Though I'd have happily paid full price and waited 6 months, I was delighted to take my dress home that day!

Couldn't have asked for a better experience at Ultimate Bride. My dress needed major work and the alterations department had it perfect after my first fitting. They were caring, listened to what I wanted and made me feel great!!!

Love Laura Massey!! posted 5/1/2012

I had the greatest experience with Laura & Ultimate Bride! I actually had purchased a different dress but always wanted a Monique that I had been unable to try on, and Ultimate made it happen! They worked with me on price and made it totally affordable, so I was able to get my dream wedding dress :) I highly recommend working with Laura - she was a doll!
