I had such a wonderful experience with the Elite Bridal team! Anekah was my stylist for the day and she made the appointment perfect. She asked me how I felt about every dress and pushed me to consider what would make each dress a 10. She listened closely for my feedback and never seemed to tire of my unsure answers. She was the perfect hypwoman and was so good natured. She gave me feedback to help inform my decision and was always happy to help me add all the glam to make the whole thing come together. She picked out my veil and it brought the whole look together. I really have nothing but positive things to say. I said "Yes" to my dress on my first visit!

Amy was AMAZING. She accommodated ALL my needs. She made the whole experience so fun. I brought 6 people with big personalities, and we were all amazed. We literally had a blast. I would 100% recommend working with her. She was so kind and understanding of my wants and needs.

My experience with Elite was nothing shy of amazing! I am very self conscious about my weight and my consultant was fantastic! She listened to how I was feeling and gave her opinion with my idea to help me find the perfect dress! Even going back for the fitting once my dress was in, she was more excited than I was initially to help me try it on and see how it fits! It was just a very awesome experience for me and would recommend them to everyone!

The experience I had here at Elite Bridal has been phenomenal! My consultant listened to what I liked and did not care for in a dress. Once I found my dress, the entire staff was so excited and sharing in the joy continuing through the process of ordering and purchasing the dress. They continue to stay in touch and update me on the progress of the dress shipment. We also went back for the moms to look for their mother of the bride/groom dress. I would highly recommend Elite Bridal for any upcoming bride to shop here for their dress!

I absolutely loved my experience at Elite Bridal. They have so many dresses to choose from in every style and price range. Before my appointment, they got in touch with me to ask price range, style, size, etc. to make sure they had a feel for what I’d like when I arrived. My consultant was AMAZING. Such a sweet person who made me feel comfortable and found me the perfect dress. I definitely recommend starting your search for the perfect dress at Elite.

I had an absolutely amazing experience at Elite Bridal. I drive a little over two hours had booked a private appointment which did not disappoint. My consultant was PHENOMENAL. They did not pressure me, they were supportive and really helped me find the dress of my dreams. I cannot rave about this place or the staff enough, what an absolutely perfect experience!

WOW. Excellent environment, attention to detail, ease of try-ons, extensive selection, and closest “fit” when trying on gowns. The entire staff welcomed myself and my party, kept it fun and energetic, and were my biggest cheerleaders with every gown I tried on. Cannot recommend Elite Bridal enough for anyone searching for their dream dress!!!! I’m giddy to show off my wedding dress and will always remember my glamorous experience here. SO HAPPY THANK YOU!!!

This was such an amazing experience. I was extremely nervous going to try on dresses for the first time but coming to Elite Bridal made this into a special experience. From the selection for more full sizes, to the assistance, and just the affirming feeling of anticipation of our special day- this was the best experience I’ve every had at any store hands down (and I have been to quite a few in my life). I hope many more women get to come here and feel as special as I do!

I had the most amazing experience at Elite Bridal finding my dress. My consultant was so amazing, and we instantly clicked! I ended up with the very last dress I tried on that looked nothing like what I was thinking I’d go with and I wouldn’t trade it. Shelby was also amazing and they made the experience so wonderful.

I went to another bridal shop 1 month ago and my experience was HORRIBLE. I was nervous to go to Elite because of how horrible my previous experience was, but as soon as I walked in and was greeted, I knew I was in the right place and in good hands. They asked my opinion on every detail before letting me pick out some dresses to try on. When I found one I liked that wasn’t in my budget they found another option that was very similar but still in my price range. They were open to removing dresses from the mannequin if needed and never made me feel like I was asking for too much. They never made me feel uncomfortable in the dressing room like the first place did and they gave me their own opinions on each dress I walked out in. They said more than just “this train, the heading, the sparkle, etc is beautiful with this dress” they gave me more comments towards me and my happiness in each dress which I really appreciated. My overall experience was AMAZING. I will be recommending them to anyone who asks. Thank you girls so much for all the help!

I was a nervous, not excited bride...I am larger, and not in my 20s, so, I was worried I would have nothing to try on and I would look silly, but honestly, Shelby made the entired afternoon so much fun. I felt like a BRIDE! Her enthusiasm and spirit was infectious and I couldn't help but get into the entire "vibe" of things. I had plenty to try on and I definitely found my dress! Thank you Elite, from this non-traditional bride, who got a totally traditional dress!

I recently went to Elite bridal to look for the perfect dress. I will filled with nerves and had no idea what I was looking for, Rachel took me and gave me the best confidence!! She reminded me the whole day how great I looked and how good I was doing! She helped walk me through the emotions of family opinions and remembering its my day! I can't say enough good things about this place 10/10 reccomend!!

My Experience with Brooke and Elite Bridal was amazing, one of a kind, perfect, there aren’t enough good things I can say. She was kind, compassionate, supportive, helped me try on all the dresses I picked out in my time frame- there were a lot of dresses- and even a few I just liked that I saw when I got there that I wasn’t expecting- the selection here is HUGE! Anyone can go in and walk out with a dress you love! I can not wait to wear my dress and feel like a princess! Thank you so much Brooke and Elite Bridal!

I had a wonderful experience at Elite Bridal when I went to look at wedding gowns! It was a new experience for me, and I didn’t know what to expect. Carolina was so kind, helpful, and personable. She showed me around the store and suggested dresses of the style I was looking for. I felt like a princess walking out in the dress I fell in love with. All the staff were kind and professional. They really made my experience there fun and memorable.

Carolina was amazing! She was so friendly and made me feel way more comfortable and relaxed. I was a little nervous, but she made it so fun. I love my dress, and I’m really happy that I was able to get a good discount for buying it off the rack. I had an awesome experience, and I’m so grateful that I went to Elite!

I highly recommend that all brides shop at Elite Bridal. I felt so lucky to be paired with Tanya. She made me feel heard, comfortable, and so special. She was patient with me through the selection process - if I thought I need a veil or a bouquet, she had it. I enjoyed my time with her and the whole shopping experience so much. It is a wonderful memory I will always have to look back on!
Courtney from Champaign IL

I had an amazing experience at Elite Bridal. Everyone was very welcoming and made the day a really fun experience, especially Carolina who helped me. I honestly was very nervous going into it just since I’m not one who likes being the center of attention, but she made it so fun and helped me really relax and make the most of it. The first dress I tried on ended up being the one that I said yes to so I’m so thankful that I was able to find the perfect dress for me!

I had the BEST time at Elite choosing my wedding dress. Machelle was so attentive to what I was wanting and really clicked with me so I found the dress of my dreams! The other girls made me feel so beautiful and confident in my choice as well.
