My wedding was wonderful, and now I finally got a chance to review my vendors. I loved working with Vanessa’s to select my wedding gown, my best friend and I both got our gowns here, and we were helped by a different consultant both named Amanda. :) My Amanda was lovely, she was patient, friendly and helpful, she picked out great dresses based on my body type, even though they weren’t what I originally wanted, one of them was so perfect it became my dream dress! It even came in quicker than expected! Alteration with Barbara went smoothly without a hitch. That’s huge according to all my friends. Be sure to make an appointment by phone, that’s one thing I’ve learned by my wedding gown search from many stores, you can’t just stroll in and expect consultants or seamstresses to be always immediately available. Vanessa’s was great! I recommended them to all my friends in Chicago and now you.
We had a most wonderful experience at Vanessa's. My family and I went to many stores to look for my gown, and we found it at the closest shop to our house!! They don't have racks upon racks of gowns to choose from, but each one I tried on there was so pretty! It's a smaller boutique, so we witnessed a bridal gown second fitting with another bride. Everyone was so relaxed and satisfied, and that to me is very important. Price was good, and customer service was friendly. We are quite happy! Highly recommended!!
We had a wonderful time at Vanessa's. It's a small and intimate salon, my family and I had champagne, we cried and we laughed, and we bought my dress! It's a delicate lace dress that makes me so happy! We actually cancelled our other appointments on that day. We worked with Amanda and she was wonderful. Highly recommended.
My experience at Vanessa's has been nothing short of fabulous. The dresses are gorgeous. The staff is polite, helpful and genuine. They answered all my questions without being pretentious or evasive. We didn’t buy first time we were there because I had another bridal appointment at a different store, but I had fallen in love with one of the dresses I tried on and came back to buy it. Throughout the process I wasn’t pressured to buy on the spot like at some of the other stores I’ve been to. The overall experience was very pleasant and fun. I have also met Vanessa’s seamstress Sylvia, have seen her working with a bride for her bridal gown fitting while I was there. I’m excited to be working with someone so nice myself! I’ll be updating my review when the alteration is done. In the future, I will absolutely recommend Vanessa's to friends and family.
My wedding gown shopping experience at Vanessa's was as good as it gets! With only four month between my ordering the gown and my wedding, I thought it would be a stressful experience, but happily it was not. Vanessa's customer service really made a difference, they knew me by name every time I called and updated me on the status of my gown. My beautiful bridal gown arrived exactly they way they promised and on time! The seamstress was nice and accommodating with my schedule when it was time for fittings, the whole experience was great. Thanks Vanessa's and the nice ladies who work there! We are coming back for my sisters
I searched all over for my wedding dress, and I found it at Vanessa's! Vanessa and her mom run the shop, so, no matter what, you are getting the very best service! The selection of dresses was phenomenal, and the prices of the dresses were very reasonable! We had even seen some of the same dresses at other boutiques in the area for a higher prices than the ones that were listed at Vanessa's!I was also able to order my bridesmaid dresses through the shop, even though I found the dresses elsewhere, Vanessa gave us the best price around!I cannot stop raving about how great of an experience it has been to shop at Vanessa's! She makes looking for, and finding a dress a fun and easy going experience!
The ladies at Vanessa's are wonderful. Helpful and not pushy. Allison was extremely thoughtful and patient, she was able to find me the exact style I was looking for. She also made excellent suggestions on accessories and alterations, etc. I love the fact that their selection is gorgeous with high-end couture styles but at very reasonable prices. I just had my first bridal gown fitting, the seamstress Sylvia is a wonderful person who does absolutely beautiful work . It's the place to go for any bride who wants to feel very well taken care of.A little update: I'm a happy bride who has dealt with this business for several months now. These are NICE people to work with. I now consider them my friends who can always be counted on during the high excitement and stressful time of preparing my wedding.
