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 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.”
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!

“Belle Vie Bridal Couture is truly a unique store. Without them, I would not have found the dress. Their ability to read people and their style set them apart. A bride will not find such an all-encompassing, memorable bridal experience anywhere else. They are unique and they are unforgettable. They provided a time in my life that I will treasure forever.”
“The whole store is beautiful. It’s such a neat and clean boutique. It’s very modern and elegant and very classy. It felt special just to walk in the store. The dressing rooms were great and they gave me a plush robe to put on while I waited to try on the dresses.”
“I was literally the bride that had no idea what she wanted or what would even look good. I’m definitely a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, and the whole process of finding a wedding dress gave me nightmares. That being said, the day we went to Belle Vie, I was so surprised by how at ease the stylists made me feel. They treated me like I was the only person in the store, and the owner even came over to tell me how beautiful I looked in my dress.”
“I thought the salon had a great variety of dresses and designers. They definitely worked within my budget and steered me towards dresses that were simple enough to meet my style and were within my price range.”
“The staff at Belle Vie is VERY attentive and very accommodating. I would recommend them to any future bride looking for a memorable experience when buying a dress and not just a shopping trip.”(What does this mean?)
