Amazing experience

My experience at a&be was wonderful and one I would wish for every future bride. The staff were welcoming, helpful, and personable. I never felt pushed to try on a dress or to not give my honest opinion. I was treated as an individual and felt that the staff truly cared about... Read More finding me the perfect dress (which I did!). The environment is also amazing. The store is open and inviting, while giving individual space (dressing room, full length mirror, pedestal, and seating) for each person to try on gowns. While their selection of dresses may be smaller than some, they have picked a wide range of exquisite dresses.

Cute Store & Excellent Service!

I just went wedding dress shopping for their soft opening today and had the best experience. It was my first time shopping for a wedding dress and Jordan made the experience so easy going. They had a beautiful selection of dresses. Jordan offered suggestions which I appreciated... Read More since I had no clue what kind of dress I was looking for.

I had a FANTASTIC experience here at A&be! I highly recommend Emily as she was an A++++ bridal associate! I can’t rave enough about Emily as I only have limited characters on this review! So, of course, I found my dream dress that day which happened to be the first dress Emily... Read More pulled for me after listening to my likes/dislikes (I had a long list of dislikes). Emily helped clip me in, answered all my questions and she let me touch my dream dress as much as I wanted! I seriously couldn’t stop touching it and Emily let me be “me!” If I could turn back time, I would’ve started searching at A&be before any other bridal shop and saved myself two trips to Chicago, and having a terrible bridal fitting experience elsewhere that left me and my bridal party in tears and shamed afterwards. I’m so happy I came to A&be!!!!! Thank you Emily for helping me in my bridal dress journey. I can’t wait to post/tag you in my wedding photos. So hurry, Go here, you won’t be disappointed.

Amazing dresses and amazing service! We worked with Kristin and she incredibly helpful. The dress I ended up choosing was one that she had me try on based on other dresses I was interested in (and all within the price range I communicated). Couldn't have had a better experience!

I loved working with Emily at a&bé. I was set on getting a Hayley Paige gown long before I was engaged. Working in the wedding industry you see so many beautiful gowns, but hers were always my favorite. Then Hayley got married, and wowza I needed her dress. Lucky for me she...

They also ordered in a veil for me to try on, as well as my crown/ headpiece. I loved it all!

We had the best experience here! I had a dress picked out from an earlier appointment when I walked in to a&be and didn't think I would find anything that could beat it here. Kristin was so patient with our large group, she listened to my budget and then took me around the store... Read More to show me some dresses. I am a person who has a hard time saying no to people but she made it super easy to be clear on what styles I did and didn’t like. She also pulled a wide range of styles which was how I found my dream dress. It was one that I had overlooked on the rack but when I put it on I knew it was the one! The best part about it is how unique it is which can be said about every dress in this store! Kristin then took the time to find the perfect accessories for my dress to complete the look. Lastly, she went over in detail the sizing of the dress and helped me decide which size to go with when I was between two different sizes. I felt so comfortable leaving that store knowing that she had thought of everything from the dresses length to the cost. She is amazing!! Thank you a&be for finding me the perfect dress to get married in!

I came to a&bé with the intention of simply starting my dress search. I wanted to try on dresses and get a feel for what I liked. However, when I stepped into their gorgeous shop, I had the feeling my dress was meant to come from a&bé. I ended up saying "Yes!" within an hour and... Read More a half of my appointment. My consultant, Emily, was absolutely amazing! She listened to EXACTLY what I wanted, but also had me try out other dresses. She encouraged me tell her how I felt in different dresses and pulled others based on what I felt and thought. I can't stress enough how truly amazing she is at what she does. It was impossible to find a dress I didn't care for because she knew my vision. She even took my venue into consideration while searching for the perfect dress.
