Kathryn's was my first & only dress appointment. Our consultant Anna was so incredibly helpful & did her research to know exactly what I was looking for. She looked at emails I'd sent, my Pinterest board, and even helped pull bridesmaid dresses I'd researched for my out of town sisters to try on while we were there. She challenged me to try on dresses outside my comfort zone so I could confidently rule them out. She was so incredibly respectful of our budget which I greatly appreciated. With each dress I tried on, Anna would listen to my likes & dislikes and find something that was a step in the right direction. I found exactly what I was hoping for, in my budget, and the right veil to round out the dress. I was unsure how I would feel trying on wedding dresses & being the center of attention, and my experience at Kathryn's was exactly what I'd hoped it'd be. Private dressing room for getting into the dresses, the only bride in the salon, a consultant who listened to my opinions & adapted the dresses to try on accordingly, no pushy salespeople or pressure whatsoever. It was an encouraging, educational, positive shopping trip. I would highly recommend Kathryn's to anyone looking for a positive bridal experience. Anna went above and beyond to help me find everything I was looking for and was so respectful, patient, and supportive. Thank you Kathryn's!
I have shopped at Kathryn's Bridal for years. I went to Kathryn for all of my pageant and prom dresses. Last week, I ended up saying yes to my wedding dress with Kathryn herself. Very personable and honest people. Loved my consultant. I enjoyed having a little "meet and greet" with my consultant before even trying on a dress. I could not be more pleased!
I went with my mother not expecting to find my dream dress on the first shopping trip, but wow, the staff at Kathryn's was incredible and we walked away with the perfect dress and matching veil! The consultant we worked with, Kathie, was so attentive and really listened to what I said and gave me time to consider the options and knew exactly when to give my mom and I time alone. They were so professional and completely de-mystified the process for me. Once we had selected the gown they explained every step of the process and I do not feel nearly as anxious about it as I did going in! For anyone looking for their gown, Kathryn's has wonderful staff and a HUGE selection of beautiful dresses. I'm so excited to go back in a few months and see my dress (and their staff) again!
I had a very positive experience at Kathryn's Bridal. It was the first shop I went to in search of a wedding dress so I was nervous and didn't know what to expect. Thankfully everybody there was very friendly and helpful. They also have a beautiful and wide selection of wedding dresses starting at very affordable prices. I described what style of dress I was looking for and the lady that was helping me started going around, grabbing dress after dress after dress. Most places will grab a specific amount of dresses (like 6 or 7) but at Kathryn's they didn't seem to be concerned with numbers, they just wanted to give me as many choices as possible. I did find THE dress there. The only reason I visited another store after Kathryn's is that I wanted to get my dress from a store that was closer to home. My work schedule is very hectic so it would have been hard for me to schedule fittings later on if I had to drive too long to get there. I was very happy with them and that's why I felt so bad when I called to let them know I purchased the dress from another place. She was very understanding and nice and wished me the best. Not only that, a few days later I received a card in the mail from them congratulating me again for finding the perfect dress. I thought that was very nice especially because they didn't have to since I didn't get it from them. I had a great experience at Kathryn's Bridal and I definitely would have gotten my dress from them if it was closer to my house. I highly recommend them.
When looking for my bridal gown Kathryn's was fantastic! I felt special and important. There were a number of different styles and sizes to try on which was very nice. The appoint went smoothly, and I didn't feel rushed. My dress has not yet come in, so I haven't worked with the seamstress in alterations yet.
Melissa and the entire staff made me feel wonderful. Being the mother of the groom, I was so excited to find the perfect dress. I am happy o say that I did. What a beautiful selection they have to choose from. I felt like a million bucks, when I left. Thank you all for your enthusiasm, and kindness.
Great atmosphere and service. The staff was very nice and helpful. It made finding a dress stress-free and fun.
I used to watch SYTTD all the time and dream about how my day would be. My experience at Kathryn's was more than I could have ever dreamt of! I purchased my dress at Kathryn's on Saturday. I must say that my experience was beyond PHENOMENAL. I was at another bridal salon prior to arriving at Kathryn's and the two salons do not even compare to one another. The second my large group and I walked into the door at Kathryn's we knew we were in the right place. The entire staff was so bubbly and friendly. I had the pleasure of working with Anna. She was AMAZING!!! She really took the time to listen to what I pictured myself in. I felt so comfortable with her. Every dress that I tried on, she made me feel like a beautiful bride. Once I had "the" dress on, Anna put the veil on and I started crying tears of joy. When I said yes to the dress it was a big celebration. The other bridal consultants took the time to come say congratulations and then Kathryn brought out the champagne. I felt like I was on top of the world thanks to the staff at Kathryn's, my group, and my beautiful dress! Thanks to Kathryn's my SYTTD experience was a dream come true!
I mean wow! Bought my dress today at Kathryn's with help from Anna. All the staff was absolutely amazing. So welcoming and willing to help in anyway. Everyone was so friendly, and it was genuine. Anna was patient and truthful with me, and I found my perfect dress because of her. The selection was amazing as well, and I'm plus size. I never got to try on this many dresses anywhere else that were my size. After I found the one they let me wear it for quite a while and just enjoy being a bride. I would go back and do it all again. This place is a brides dream.
I went Bridal Shopping at Kathryn's and had a wonderful experience. This was my second time dress shopping and I was happy to say that this by far beat out my horrific 1st time experience at Volle's in Lake Zurich. Not only was Kathyrn's a better place to try on dresses because of the size fitting rooms and the rooms where they hold their dresses but they did an outstanding job offering advice and pulling the styles I wanted to try on. Lana, the amazing sales woman, who helped me during this entire process was nothing short of FANTASTIC!!! She truly cares about you as a person and wants nothing but the best for your big day! This personable experience made wedding dress shopping fun and enjoyable! She was patience, kind and caring during both of my extensive appointments. I highly recommend Kathryn's to any and all bride to be's. You will not be disappointed with their high quality service and kind and caring nature! They are very detail oriented and were very knowledgeable when it came to knowing fabrics, designers and any questions regarding alterations. This bridal store is a MUST to visit! =) Some things I LOVED about Kathryn's: - You can walk around and pick out dresses to try on (2 rooms full of dresses) - Big fitting rooms - Full sized mirrors - Customer Service - Caring consultants - Outstanding people and business - Large dress selection - Variety in different style dresses - Knowledgeable in their field and in knowing designers, fabrics and alternation questions - Were able to answer any question I had - Match any veil, belt or any other bling you wanted to add to your dress! - Tasteful selections They also have an entire downstairs for Mother of the bride dresses and an entire upstairs for your bridesmaid dresses! Including color swatches for any dress you pick out! This Boutique is a MUST to visit!!!
I enjoyed every single visit to Kathryn's Bridal! From picking out my dress to alteration appointments, everyone was extremely friendly, helpful and lovely. Kathryn's had an amazing selection of gowns within an appropriate price range. I never felt "sold to" but rather, felt genuinely cared about. I felt like they really wanted my day to be exactly what I envisioned. Can't say enough great things about Kathryn's!
There is a huge selection of gowns here. I got engaged in June and have set a wedding date in January 2017. With such a short engagement, I was worried about the dresses I would be able to order in time. Kathryn's had dozens of dresses in sample sizes that fit me and they even had a huge sample sale going on! They completely took the stress of the time frame out of the situation for me. I found my gown and I have never felt more beautiful! They were very accommodating to my mom and future mother-in-law. **Post-Wedding Review: The fitting and alteration process was quick and easy with Kathryn's! My dress was supposed to arrive around Thanksgiving, but it came in a month early! I got started right away with my fitting appointments and had my dress done about a month before the wedding. It was so nice to have one thing crossed off the list! I felt absolutely BEAUTIFUL in my gown and got many compliments on how it was the perfect dress for me. I couldn't be happier with having chosen this gown or Kathryn's.
I had the most incredible experience at Kathryn's bridal! In fact- it was so great it was the only bridal salon I went to and purchased the 5th dress I tried on!!! The staff is amazing - they truly make you feel like the incredible bride you are! After a consultation they allow you and your guests to actually walk around and pull any and all dresses you want!! They do not hover over you, and they also pick a few based on your consultation!! 5 stars - best experience!!
Wonderful experience! I brought my two maids of honor, my mother and soon to be mother in-law, and although we all had different sense of taste and style our assistant for the afternoon helped us all get on the same page. One of the hardest parts about shopping for a wedding dress for me is to critique any of the beautiful gowns. However Anna, our consultant, helped me have the confidence to critique the dresses I did not like, and identify what it was about the dresses I disliked or liked. Along with that she never brought a dress into the fitting room that was over my price point. Allowing me to chose a dress that was almost half my budget! With that in mind I was able to find a dress that fits my personality and style, and most importantly one that makes me feel like a beautiful and confident version of myself!
The staff at Kathryn's bridal are phenomenal. I worked with Lanna who helped me pick out the perfect wedding dress! Emotions can often run high for some in the middle of wedding craziness. Lanna and the rest of the staff have been extremely patient in dealing with my family and I. We also worked with Anna for getting the invitations, thank you's and place cards. She was so kind and helpful every step of the way! Now they are working on alterations on my wedding dress and I wanted to give a huge thank you to all staff at Kathryn's bridal for making this experience enjoyable and stress-free! You are all such a blessing to me! andam so grateful to you!
I have always driven by Kathryn's while growing up and saw their beautiful displays (which they change out regularly). I knew someday I would be in there trying some of these amazing gowns on! The appointment was easy to make and pretty last minute. Lana (i believe) helped us and she was absolutely amazing. She knew the entire selection that they had. We were allowed a specific amount of dresses for the allotment of time. She was convinced that she found my perfect dress. When I looked at it in the bag I believed it had absolutely nothing I was looking for in a dress. But she told me i had to try it on and she added it to my selection. I refused to try it on until the end and sure enough, it was the perfect dress! She knew so much and was incredibly helpful. Laura was our seamstress and we were constantly amazed by how knowledgeable she is. She really worked hard to make everything exactly as I needed/wanted it. The nice thing about this shop is that even after over 9 months, when I came back in Lana recognized me and remembered our experience. They really understand and care about each brides needs. ALSO, their selection is absolutely AMAZING! Every time I went in I wanted to try on more dress if one for fun! Finally, their price point varies. I did double my budget because I found the perfect dress. However they definitely had affordable options. My dress, for example, was $1100 off because it was an "old" style and a floor sample! I highly recommend Kathryn's and will always remember my great experience there!!
I ended up purchasing a sample gown and veil along with the help of Lonna! The whole experience was wonderful! Highly recommend!
Kathryn's Bridal was the first place I went to when trying on wedding dresses. I was crazy nervous because I was a plus size bride and didn't think I'd find anything I would like...but the sales ladies were SO helpful and supportive and, in looking at my body type, knew exactly what would work. I ended up buying the second dress I tried on! This is a lovely store with a great selection and everyone who works there is so sweet. Definitely recommend checking it out!
All the staff is wonderful. They make you feel like you're the only priority and ensure that you find the perfect dress while respecting your budget and there is zero pressure to make a decision and buy.
This was the best experience I could have possibly had. Everyone was so wonderful and incredibly helpful. Being a plus size bride comes with it's challenges and never once did I feel uncomfortable or made to feel like I shouldn't be able to have an amazing dress. I am so appreciative to the people I worked with on this day and I am happy to say that I found my dress, ordered my dress, and will be picking it up sometime soon!
Kathryn's Bridal was my 3rd stop in a very stressful and upsetting dress hunt. The consultant was beyond patient, grabbed all the dresses I liked, and didn't rush me. They were so polite and nice, and I finally found my dress. I'm so happy with the service I received.
Nice choices at good prices.
Worked with Lana as my consultant who was absolutely amazing to work with. She helped me find the dress of my dreams and I couldn't be happier!
I bought my dress here. Great experience, decent price, overall very happy.
MJ is the best woman to see if your looking for a gown! She is personable, sweet, gets involved, makes you feel comfortable, and doesn't rush you during your appointment. I had so much anxiety when looking for my dress and she made the experience a wonderful one. Not to mention a lot of places are full of snoty stuck up woman and I did not find this at Kathryn's! Best place to go!
