    This board tends to be somewhat slow, but here's what I can tell you.

    I ended up getting my dress online - I've gained weight in the past year and did not want to get frustrated by not fitting into sample sizes at local boutiques.

    My sister did her wedding shopping here in St. Louis.  She visited Ultimate Bride and Maiden Voyage, and ended up getting her dress from Maiden Voyage.  She also chose bridesmaid dresses from them to get a discount.  She had a good experience at both of those locations. 

    I hear good things about Simply Elegant and Clarice's.  My sister wasn't thrilled with Demetrios, but I have heard other people say positive things about them.

    I would say that Google could be your friend - a search for "wedding dresses st. louis" brings up those businesses and more, with reviews.  I think there's a St. Louis bridal website, but I haven't looked into that - mostly found vendors based on word-of-mouth.

    Hope this helps!

    There are a ton of dress shops in the area & most ppl say to stay away from Ultimate Bride.  I did not go there, but have read several bad reviews.  I ordered my dress from The Bridal Shoppe in Festus... just outside of STL, but they had a great selection & were priced the same as other shops I visited.  If you register/visit stlweddotcom you can see a much more active board with suggestions/reviews.
