- Wedding: April 2014 - Morton Arboretum
Ok so from your posts and others I have a list that I am collecting *** I have not been to these salons yet but have emailed them and get great responses. ****
I recommend emailing the salons what you are looking for and your estimated size so they can tell you what they have. I am finding out I may have to travel but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and my dream experience can be a reality and not just a dream that does not come true.
SO HERE ARE MY UPDATES ON MY RESEARCH. (Please comment if you have been to any of these stores) I am probably going to start looking and visiting stores after the new year, my wedding is not until April 26th, 2014.
So I hear there is this great store in a little town that has over 200 dresses all in sizes 16 – 34, MISS PAMELA’s Bridal Salon. AND THOSE ARE ACTUAL sample sizes, so they claim…. so I emailed them. They are very responsive. I am going to look through the designers they carry and email them back a list of dresses to see what they may have. But here is there website. I hope to get more feedback from them on styles that I am leaning towards. 200 dresses in plus sizes if this place is true to form, it maybe the dress mecca.
On another wedding site they have great reviews, see weddingwire.
Now I also heard that Here Comes the Bride in Addison has a good selection (lower numbers they sent me 5 -6 dresses to look at that were in my style preference. I emailed they have a smaller collection but they already just from my email, had an idea of my style.
Then I took the recommendation of Vera’s House of Bridal in Madison, WI. they responded with lists of dresses and the sample plus size so I could get an idea before going. http://www.verasbridals.com/ they have it appears a lot more then stores in the Chicago Area, and are very responsive.
Also the Crystal Bride was very responsive and has quite a few dreses also. It is in Geneva, Illinois. I am looking for a corset so they emailed me a selection of Maggie Sottero to look at.
As always KEEP YOUR POSTS COMING,
I promise to update you on my search. Wish me Luck!! – C
