Why We Like Them

Belle Vie knows how to make brides feel special. It starts with a warm welcome to their beautiful bridal salon which conveys an elegant, modern-French ambience. Upon arrival, your personal stylist will escort you to your private suite, and then give you a tour of the luxurious showrooms…and the divine indulgences therein.

This exquisite selection of bridal gowns includes the latest offerings by such prestigious designers as Amsale, Rivini, Reem Acra and Christos. You can even indulge in hard-to-find European fashions by Valentino and Vivienne Westwood. Belle Vie also carries plenty of tempting LWDs, or Little White Dresses. Yes, they make fetching short wedding dresses; but they’re also a chic choice for your engagement party, rehearsal dinner or day-after brunch. For the total look, Belle Vie will accessorize you with the crème de la crème of bridal veils, headpieces and jewelry, including pieces by Toni Federici, Haute Bride, Paris by Debra Moreland and Lanvin Blanche. And while there, be sure to pick up a formal handbag by Judith Leiber.

And can we just say, we’re delighted to see that all of Belle Vie’s couture designers offer truly stunning evening gowns in an array of pleasing hues that will have Mothers of the Occasion looking glamorous, too. Even the flower girls get to make a fashion statement! 

This Chicagoland bridal salon is nationally renowned for their high-end customer care. The well-trained consultants keep up with the trends and designers, and do ongoing research to remain experts in the bridal industry. “Belle Vie’s service and integrity are top notch,” said a Chicago wedding planner we contacted. And the brides we spoke with agreed, noting that the stylists worked within their budgets, and had an amazing ability to read their personal style.  In keeping with their commitment to exceeding a bride’s expectations, Belle Vie has its own alterations department with an experienced staff dedicated to making sure that you will be taken care of every step of the way to the altar. “We will not let a bride go down the aisle unhappy,” the store manager assured us. This policy has earned them many a fan, and one Belle Vie bride confided to us, “They provided a time in my life that I will treasure forever.”
