Lauren Dermody from Valparaiso
This was my first time trying on dresses and I am so grateful that she let me try on different styles to make sure I knew what I liked and didn’t. The consultant was wonderful and helped me feel comfortable in the dresses. She also was able to answer the many questions me and my family had!
Michaela Shrader from LaPorte, IN
Unfortunately, I didn’t find my dress at Catherine’s, however, they have stunning dresses. The staff there was so helpful and caring! They were the only boutique so far that actually wanted to see my ring. Very nice and sweet! I would 10/10 recommend this boutique!
My experience there at catherine's was great. I like how as we were trying on dresses, we were talking about what I like about each dress and we were able to get to the dress that I will buy soon.
Sarah Benich from Valparaiso
Elizabeth was super nice to work with, she was easy to talk to, listened to my concerns and needs, and helped me pick the most gorgeous gown! Catherine was kind in helping the checkout process go smoothly, and I felt like all of my questions were answered and plenty of information was given upfront. We will return for bridesmaid dresses because of our initial experience!
Brooke DeKoker from Knox
Great experience very friendly and Catherine did everything possible to find the perfect dress for my daughters wedding day. Will recommend any new bride to get their special dress here.

Liz E did a great job making me feel comfortable and it was an awesome first time experience!
Ashley Anderson from Valparaiso, IN
This was the first place I went to try on dresses, I have never tried on wedding dresses before. I was nervous and definitely not feeling confident. I really had no idea of what I actually wanted. I had the absolute best day at Catherine’s. Rachel was amazing. She gave me honest opinions, picked out styles that brought me out of my comfort zone, and ultimately picked out “the one.” She was so fun and kind. She even helped me with our bridesmaids dresses. I can’t say enough great things about Catherine’s. We also had a second girl helping with measurements (I forgot her name) but she was awesome and had a great sense of humor as well. I will highly recommend Catherine’s to anyone I know in the market.

Rachel was great. She helped me find my perfect dress for my perfect day. Stayed within my budget and did not put any pressure on me to make the sale. Listened to me and selected dresses she believed would work for me. Beautiful selection of dresses with clean and professional atmosphere. Thanks Catherine’s Bridal and especially to you, Rachel!

I am so thankful i came to visit this store. I walked in last minute with out an apt. After I had a change of heart about the dress I thought I said yes to at a different store the day before.

The ladies at Catherine's were absolutely amazing. My consultant pulled dresses that were right up my alley, and even undressed a few mannequins for me to try on their dresses! I was able to find my perfect dress, and I'm very thankful to them for putting up with me.
Brittany Weis from Valparaiso
Cathy was perfect!! She listened to my exact preferences and helped me pick gowns to try on that fit them, but were still unique from each other! Catherine's was the first shop I went to and I certainly didn't expect to find the perfect dress that day but Cathy made it so easy and wonderful!

Ariel was AMAZING!! She was so sweet and patient while i tried on 9 different dresses. She told me about each one and asked my likes and dislikes and used that info to find me my dream dress! I'm so thankful for incredible people like her!!

Ariel was excellent to work with. She listened to my wants, concerns and needs. She had such a friendly personality and made shopping for a wedding dress a very pleasant experience. I would highly recommend scheduling an appointment and asking for Ariel. :)

Brianna Mihalich from Valpo
I had the best experience at Catherine’s Bridal! I found my dress on my first visit and Ariel helped me with anything I needed and let me try on all the dress styles, sizes, and neckline shapes to find out what I liked. Needless to say she did amazing at helping me find my perfect dress for my wedding day. I highly recommend her as well as the shop overall. The owner is super friendly and was complimenting my dress and how it was the perfect fit for me as well which led me to know I made the right decision in coming here. I will be back for my bridesmaid dresses!
Ariel was SUPER helpful! She listened to my style, what I like and don’t like. My appointment went so well!! I would highly recommend Catherine’s to anyone! Thank you for helping me say “yes to the dress!”

I had a wonderful time trying on wedding dresses with Ariel! I was so nervous but she put me at ease and helped me to choose the dress that I love. I am very happy I choose to go to Catherine's Bridal!
Julie Hruska from Valparaiso, IN
My mom and I were both super nervous going into the appointment, as it was my first time dress shopping, and Ariel was so great to work with! She seriously made it feel really relaxed and fun! I was able to try on as many dresses as I wanted, she suggested options, answered all of our questions. The dress selection was AWESOME!
Everything and everyone who helped me were amazing!! I felt like I could be myself with everyone while trying on dresses. It is a huge time in my life right now and they made it special for me and made me feel relaxed. I had a great experience and had a great time! Thank you for all of your help!
Jennifer Fronek from Valpo
Ariel was absolutely amazing I adored her, I think I found my perfect dress I just have to work everything out. She helped me fit into dresses that I didn’t think would fit me, she gave me dresses I thought I would hate but I loved, and made the process so beyond easy!
Molly Zakutansky from Valparaiso
I LOVED my experience here!! Unfortunately I found a dress at another store that I just couldn’t leave behind. I loved the dress I found there but was truly very sad that I wasn’t getting it from Catherine’s! From the moment I walked into your store I felt so welcomed. Cathy, you were so so wonderful and I truly appreciate all of your help and your patience today! My appointment with you was so much greater than other stores I visited! You were focused on me, you were helpful, patient, had very great opinions and advice to offer. Although my dress didn’t end up coming from your shop, I will be back to purchase my veil and bridesmaid dresses from you!! Thank you so very much for making my experience so amazing!
Emily Betcher from Chicago
Looking for a wedding dress at this store was everything a bride would want for her experience. The customer service, quality, store presentation, and genuine interest in finding the perfect dress allowed for an amazing, stress free time!
Ariel was SO sweet and extremely helpful in looking for my dress. I just recently recommended this bridal shop to my best friend after her recent engagement. You guys are the best!
Sarah Wurster from Valparaiso
This was my first bridal store I have visited looking for my wedding dress. I was blown away with the attention I was given by the staff. When I was providing my preferences, I felt completely heard because every dress she pulled for me to try on was in my style. She helped me with the changing process and provided endless suggestions and helpful comments. I left the boutique with so much more knowledge on wedding dresses and especially styles that best compliment my features. I went to David's Bridal right after, and the staff there helped me if it was convenient for them. You just cannot find this kind of service elsewhere. Additionally, they keep the dresses you like on file so you can always return or compare later! AND they'll keep your dress on site until you need it closer to your date!
Tabitha Lincoln from Valparaiso
I had so much fun ! Ariel was so much help and fun to talk to!! Thank you very much!!
Ariel was so great! She answered all my questions and helped me find the perfect dress for me!
Kristin from Valparaiso
The staff was awesome at understanding what I wanted for my wedding and was really helpful! I still haven't fully decided on a dress and may be back to keep looking! I did not feel obligated to just pick from wedding dresses. The staff knew my theme is unicorn and I wasn't sure if I just wanted a white dress. Thank you for being so helpful!!
Melody Martinez from Valparaiso, IN
WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!!! I have never felt so welcomed and cared for until I walked in Catherine’s. Ariel was so incredibly my helpful, sweet, and honest. Can not wait to order my dress from here & for the big day! Beautiful dress selection. I will be recommending for all my bride friends!
Megan Rafferty from Valparaiso
I just found my dress at your shop today and I had an amazing experience. This was the first time I went out shopping and wasn't expecting to find my dress so easily! But Kristine who helped me with shopping was so amazing and made my experience so easy!!
Stephanie Fritz from Valparaiso
The staff was very professional and completely accommodating! I just went in for my first ever dress shopping experience and I loved it! I'll be seeing the girls again soon!
Julie Shoaf from Valpo
I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Ariel was completely amazing and unbelievably helpful in every way. I had the most amazing time. And no pressure at all. I would recommend this bridal store to any future bride. And I said yes to the dress!!!
Emily from Indianapolis
Even though I didn't buy my wedding dress at Catherine's, my experience was AMAZING! I never felt rushed or pressured to buy my dress. My sister and mom came with me and it was a VERY comfortable for everyone! Would def recommend!!
Monique from Valpo
I was a walk-in and Ariel was nice enough to squeeze me in before her next appointment and helped me a lot. I really appreciate her taking the time and not making me feel rushed or like a burden at all.
