Dress Shopping

Can anyone recommend some dress boutiques in the northwest suburbs?  I'm looking for a place with good service, a good variety, and a decent selection under $1500. Thanks!

    I can recommend Volle's Bridal in Lake Zurich.  They were super-nice and had a good selection of dresses in your price range.  I didn't end up getting my dress there, but I had a great experience with them.  A friend of mine did get  her dress there and she recommended them to me.

    HTH!

    I recommend Kathryn's in McHenry.  They have been wonderful thus far.  I got my dress there, it came in 3 months after ordering and now I'll have my 1st fitting in a couple of weeks.  Very nice there and the ladies are very very sweet.

    The Crystal Bride in Geneva.  There's another nice store down the street as well called Veiled in Elegance.

    I absolutely second the recommendation to Kathryn's!  When my daughter first became engaged, she emailed several stores in the suburbs, explained that her price point was "around" $1000, and asked whether they had much of a selection within that range.  Kathryn's wrote a lovely response, and in fact, had a very good selection of dresses.  Although we were not planning on purchasing at that first appointment, my daughter fell in love with dress #5.  We have gone back twice now; once when her dress came in and another time to look at veils.  Excellent experiences all 3 times.

    The response from L'Amour, FWIW, consisted of two lines.  They said we MIGHT find something on their sample rack.

    Although I haven't been to either....I know other girls who have gone to Demetrious (spelling?) near Streets of Woodfield, and Marielle's (or something close to that) in Arlington Heights.

    (Sidebar)....If you get to Kathryn's....I recommend a trip to Windhill Pancakes for breakfast!  Fabulous!  Just east of the shop about half a mile down on the same side of the road.

    Thanks ladies! I'm in the near northwest suburbs, so I don't know if I want to go as far out as McHenry just yet...any other suggestions?
