We had a wonderful time trying on wedding dresses. The place is very small but had lots of dresses to choose from.

I had the best experience at Main Street Bridal! Honestly, I was dreading dress shopping, but I ended up having a great time here. Debbie was incredibly helpful, knowledgable, and professional which made the process smooth and enjoyable. I was able to try on whatever I wanted, which ended up being quite a bit because there were many different styles I was interested in. The shop is small but the selection is definitely not. I loved how a smaller store made for a more personalized experience. And it was a relief to never feel pressured at all during my appointment. I would absolutely recommend Debbie and Main Street Bridal to anyone looking for wedding gowns.

We had such a good time trying on dresses. You were so knowledgeable about the dress line and picked out so many good options. You really picked up on my style and likes/dislikes and had great suggestions for dresses that would flatter my body type. Thank you for a great day!

It was a fun yet relaxing visit. Debbie gave expert advice, helped me envision what would look best, and encouraged me to try on many different types of dresses but never pressured me to like and/or buy a dress. She has a wide variety of shapes and styles!

Debbie was very accommodating and encouraged me to try on as many dresses as I wanted. She also had accessories right there to see how they looked with the dress. I also loved the fact that they had dresses that fit when I tried them on!

My experience was great! I had pictures of what I wanted and she went and grabbed all of what I wanted, as well as let me pick out additional ones to try one. When I finally found the one, she added a veil and jewelry to add the finishing touches and make me feel absolutely beautiful! Would definitely recommend if you want a more personalized experience.

This was the best wedding dress buying experience! I had previously shopped at a larger store in a larger city than Carlinville. The overall experience at Main Street Bridal was hands down better than the larger store. There were a lot of gorgeous dresses to choose from. Debbie was wonderful to work with. She wasn't trying to just sell a beautiful dress. She really wanted the bride to feel beautiful and confident! Thank you!!

I had a wonderful experience at Main Street Bridal! It was so laid back, and I did not feel pressured into anything. I found my dream dress, and I am so glad I could shop local, too! Thank you for all your help! I haven't stopped smiling all day.

My first time wedding dress shopping was everything I wanted it to be. I was able to try on every dress I was interested in and weed out the styles I didn’t like. Debbie was patient and very helpful and I could not have asked for a better experience! I think I tried on 8-10 dresses and was impressed by the quantity and different styles of dresses they carry! I would recommend this store for all future brides.

Great experience here. Deb is very friendly and helpful. We actually had the place to ourselves...which made the experience that much more special. I have just begun looking and had only tried on dresses one other places, and honestly didn't like that experience at all, Deb made this day special. Thanks again.

My experience with Main Street has always been wonderful! I have always gone to Main Street for everything from prom dresses, bridesmaid's dresses, and most importantly, my wedding dress. Deb is such a kind and wonderful person and business owner. She and Nancy (seamstress) made the entire experience fun and stressless. We got everything for our wedding party from Main Street and could not have been happier. --Ali

I was terrified to go dress shopping! I did not want everyone staring at me. I was afraid to make a big decision on THE dress, and I did not want to be in a crowded salon. Main Street was perfect!! It's a small salon where they only focus on you. They made me feel comfortable through the entire experience. They made it an experience I will never forget!! --Megan

I absolutely loved working with Debbie Zilm at Main Street Bridal! She made me feel so welcomed every time I go in, and always friendly! Our entire wedding party has ordered from here, even my mom! She has a large selection to choose from and will help you find exactly what you are looking for! They can also do your alterations, which have been a breeze! I couldn't have asked for anything more when it came to shopping for my dress! Wonderful, wonderful place--I love it! Thank you, Main Street Bridal, for helping me find the dress of my dreams and making me look beautiful for my big day! --Private User
