A Real Boutique Experience posted 10/23/2013

Shopping for my wedding dress became one of my favorite experiences because of VWIDON. There are a few places you can find that fit the budget and put you in a dress that the designer herself is altering on you. I felt like she was setting me up to go down one of her runways, only in the end I got to meet my now husband at the end of the runway.

I loved my dress. It was simple but extremely unique. Many of my guests claimed it was the most beautiful dress they had ever seen. It definitely had the "wow" factor. Carla uses amazing fabrics and constructs them in a way that makes you look your best but feels like you are wearing a work of art. I would recommend VWIDON to anyone I know who is getting married.

Great Dresses But... posted 1/12/2012 (modified 1/12/2012)

When I tried on the dresses, they seemed really great! Excellent material and best of all, if you order a dress, the dress will be made just for you to fit your body shape. However, I didn't like that every dress was so plain and traditional. Nothing excited me there.

Simple, Elegant and Beautifully made pieces posted 10/26/2011 (modified 10/26/2011)

Carla makes these in the store- and they are all incredible-- I got so many compliments, and I love that I didn't see a million other brides with my dress. The designs are flattering and perfect. Stay away if you like a lot of rhinestones, crystals, etc.

I wish I could give Vwidon 6 stars. I was incredibly happy with my dress! I almost skipped this appointment, it was the last one after a long day, and I had found so many dresses that I just loved. When I walked in, I didn't necessarily see anything that popped out to me and I had just been at a sample sale at Ultimate Bride where I found a few fantastic dresses. I tried on the first dress, and the fabric really blew me away, it's so luxe, and sooo much higher quality than the others I tried on. I wasn't completely sold, then I tried on the dress I ended up buying, and I saw my Mom and Best Friend's faces change a little. It took me a while to realize how beautiful the dress is, but the longer I had it on, the more I fell in love with it.
Carla is wonderful, she takes the time to listen, and works with you to find what works for you. We ended up changing the bodice of the dress, making the train longer, adding buttons, adding a sweatheart neckline, she was so helpful and pleasant to work with, and patient with our extreme indeciveness and slow decision making. She had wonderful suggestions too. I absolutely loved, loved, loved my dress, it was so flattering!

I worked with Carla at Vwidon when selecting my wedding dress, and found her to be an amazing designer. After going to Vwidon to try on dresses, no other bridal shops or dresses even compared. Carls selection is excellent, with a wide variety of style - I could have worn anyone of her dresses and felt like the most beautiful bride. Her prices are reasonable, and her tailoring is top notch. The customer service from Carla and the staff at Vwidon is truly a step above other bridal boutiques I visisted. I have told every new bride I know about Vwidon. Thank you Carla!

If I were to do it all over again, I'd return to Vwidon in a second for my dress! A stranger recommended Vwidon to me and I am so fortunate that she did. Vwidon has a wide selection of elegant, timeless, sophisticated dresses to choose and I bought my dress on the first visit. Carla did a wonderful job altering my dress and it fit perfect on the wedding day. I definitely recommend Vwidon.

Carla and Vwidon did an absolutely amazing job on my wedding dress! I cannot tell you how many compliments I have received on the dress alone! She tailored it to fit my body perfectly and created a custom veil to match. Her designs are UNIQUE, TIMELESS, affordable and absolutely GORGEOUS! Thank you Carla- I cannot imagine my wedding day without your design and help!

Fabulous!!! posted 10/24/2010

One of my girlfriends had her dress made at Vwidon a few years back and I remembered Vwidon's simple elegance. My hips are 2.5 sizes bigger than my chest and i have a very short torso, so dress shopping isn't fun. Carla's designs do magic! Her dresses were the only ones that didn't make me look like a pear. She nips and tucks all in the right places to give a beautiful hourglass figure. I was able to wear an elegant, sleek dress instead of trying to hide my hips in a ball gown, poofy dress.
What I like most about Vwidon is that her dresses are hand-tailored to YOUR exact measurements... a TRUE couture dress. I tried on an Amsale dress someplace else for $4000 (which I couldn't afford). They would have had to order a size 8 to fit my hips even though my chest/torso was a size 2. And then I would have had to pay another $500+ in alterations. That's not a couture dress! Whereas, at Vwidon, the tailor is right there in the shop. The dress is made just for you.
Plus, if you buy the off the rack, you save 20% and get your dress altered to your measurements by the person who actually made the dress! Can't beat that! I'm known as the "cheap" one amongst my friends, but whatever you pay at Vwidon is totally worth it.
I don't have enough good things to say about Carla at Vwidon. The entire experience is professional and great. And I love that I can say I supported a local designer, since Carla and Kenneth graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago.

I wish I could wear my wedding dress everyday! I felt like a princess and Carla helped me make a dress that was perfect for me. The satin Carla uses is so soft and the dress fit perfectly. It was amazing!
