  • Dame Couture was by far the best decision I made for our entire wedding! The women at Dame are absolutely incredible in so many ways - creativity, skill, personality, adaptability, and so much more. I had much anxiety over finding the right dress for my body, and the Dames made every moment of the process beautiful and fun!

  • The ladies at Dame Couture were a pleasure to work with. They listened to me and understood what I wanted. This is definitely the place to go if you want something different than the standard set of wedding dresses you see at bridal stores. I have not a single criticism. My experience there was great all around.

  • I had a superb experience at Dame Couture. I brought a few design ideas to our first meeting, and Holly made the dress I had pictured all along! The Dames do high quality work with lots of attention to detail, and it was clear throughout the whole process that they were genuinely excited about my dress. They're all very sweet ladies! I'm still getting compliments on my dress, months after my wedding. Very much recommended!

  • The ladies at Dame Couture were a dream to work with. As a size 14/16 woman, I was having a difficult time finding a high quality dress that fit and flattered my figure without sacrificing style and fabric choice (and without spending an arm and a leg). After one meeting with DC, the search was over. They talked me through the process of deciding on all the details of the dress and delivered exactly what I wanted for my wedding day. They listened to my feedback and were able to make spur of the moment changes to my dress to make sure it was perfect. Also, I live in Virginia full time but have family in Chicago and they were able to accommodate my travel schedule for the consultation and fittings - even over holidays. I would absolutely not hesitate to recommend Dame Couture to anyone. For the cost of many of the designer gowns out there (or less, depending on the complexity of your desired design) you can end the stressful search for a wedding dress and get a custom made gown from a gr...

  • The girls at Dame Couture were amazing and made me a beautiful wedding dress based on a single picture of one that I liked. The dress was spectacular and fit perfectly. I had so many compliments and so many people asking who the designer was of the dress. I'm so happy I decided to use them.

  • There really aren't any words to describe how helpful the ladies at Dame Couture were. They truly gave me the dress of my dreams in the budget I had. Not only were they flexible and met all of the visions I had in my head but they talked me through the entire process. My wedding would not have been the same without the ladies from Dame Couture

  • I wanted a red dress for my wedding. I had a Pinterest page that was all over the place. I wanted vintage. I wanted tea length. I wanted off the shoulder. I wanted black lace... Working with Holly, my crazy Pinterest page started becoming a reality. I have gotten more comments on how amazing my dress was from everyone, guests and vendors. I did not want to take it off at the end of the night. It was totally my dress. I felt like a bride is supposed to feel. Holly's attention to detail and perfectionism helped to create the only dress I could've worn on the most romantic, beautiful, important day of my life.

  • I can not say enough about Holly. I am in love with my dress and I can't thank her enough for her professionalism and taking my view, putting it down on paper, and making it a reality! I plan on keeping my dress, hoping one day my daughter will want to wear it! Can't say enough great things! If you are looking for something different, unique, and timeless, go see Holly!

  • Working with Holly and Megan at Dame Couture was great fun. I loved going to their beautiful store to try on dresses and their amazing selection of head pieces. I ended up making a non-traditional choice and decided upon a red satin gown. It was divine and fit me beautifully. The process of having a custom dress made was amazing and I am so happy that I had the experience of having a piece of clothing made to fit my body perfectly. I highly recommend working with Holly. She is very talented and a lovely person to work with.

  • I searched high and low for a dress that reflected my style, but every time I walked into a traditional bridal shop I was disappointed - not because the dresses were bad, but because I couldn't see myself in any of the gowns. I am not a big, poofy wedding gown girl. A friend mentioned that I should look into Dame Couture. I was not terribly impressed by the website (it doesn't do an ounce of justice to the shop's cozy, adorable atmosphere), but decided to give it a shot anyway. I was blown away. Not only do you get the saleswoman's complete attention (there is only one dressing room, so this is by appointment-only), but the dresses were perfect. The designs are unique, many are vintage-inspired and completely customize-able. There are samples to try on, and once you pick your gown they work with you to pick the fabrics and assemble your own couture dress. The prices range from $600-$2500 depending on what you want. The best part is that you can bring in your mother's old wedding gown a... Read more

  • Holly and the "Dames" at Dame Couture designed a look for my wedding that was so unique and made me feel so special on my wedding day. From the first consultation with Gretchen, I knew I wanted to work with them to create my dream dress. I was blown away that it was possible to have a couture dress made just for me right here in Chicagoland at a price comparable to the typical route of going through a bridal salon and ordering from a designer. I had several appointments to leading up to the final fitting and each time they gave me their undivided attention and care. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome and I got SO many compliments on my beautiful dress. Having my dress made by the wonderful ladies at Dame Couture was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding and I would recommend it to anyone.

  • Going to Dame Couture was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. I had a specific silhouette in mind, and the Dames helped me find a gorgeous lace that was really one-of-a-kind. The gown helped make my day magical - the guests called it "divine" and "perfect". And I loved that I was putting my money towards a local business, and that my dress was being made by wonderful people. I also bought my veil and headpiece there; the Dames have great taste and helped me with the entire ensemble. The entire process was personal and fun.

  • Walking into Dame Couture was the best wedding decision I made! I was able to find the most perfect refurbished 1950's gown and Holly was amazing at every step of the way. She carefully worked on the dress to make it just to my vision (including adding a complicated black wedding belt to compliment my spooky Halloween theme). I looked forward to every fitting because she always made me feel so relaxed and beautiful. The dress looked amazing on and photographed even more magnificently. If you are looking for a unique or vintage (non-big box wedding dress) Dame Couture is for you! Absolutely the best in the Chicagoland area!
