Just 25 miles west of downtown in Wheaton, Illinois, this fresh and friendly bridal salon has so much to offer Chicagoland brides. And whether you’re a bride in search of a wedding-day ensemble for yourself and your bridesmaids (and flower girl!), or a Mother of the Bride or Groom who wants to make a memorable style-statement, you can count on the support and expertise of proprietor Nicole Kurz and her well-trained staff.
Nicole’s chic-factor is evident the moment you cross the threshold. The shop is intimate and prettily decorated, so you feel like you’re visiting the boudoir of an elegant friend. Her selection of designers hits the right note, too: stylish but not extravagant, modern yet feminine, there’s something here for “all tastes, shapes, and budgets.” Eye-catching stunners by Kitty Chen and Amy Kuschel (a Chicagoland exclusive!) will make you feel special yet still comfortably “you.” Nade-in-the-USA wedding dresses by Aria offer modern silhouettes and sophisticated details, while the opulence of La Richi Couture gives princess brides the royal treatment.
But what brides appreciate most about this particular boutique is the exceptional service. According to one newlywed we spoke with, “Everyone at The Dress by Nicole made my dress shopping enjoyable and as stress-free as possible.” Brides also compliment the shop’s fashion knowledge, including fabrics and gown construction. This isn’t surprising, since Nicole herself not only has a life-long passion for bridal, but also has a degree in Fashion Design!
One Chicago bride summed up this bridal salon’s high-points best: “The whole experience made me feel glamorous and classy.” And isn’t that every bride’s dress-shopping dream?

“I could not have been happier with my dress, I would wear it everyday if I could! Nicole and her team truly made my bridal shopping experience wonderful, and they helped me find the dress of my dreams.”
“I was VERY impressed with the assistance provided by The Dress. Nicole knows many of the designers personally and therefore was able to tell me what alterations/changes were possible with each dress. I was able to try on dresses under $1000 and dresses over $5000. All were stunningly beautiful.”
“Nicole possesses the knowledge about fabric, alterations, and style that made the experience stress-free. I shopped only there and I ended up purchasing the first dress I tried on.”
“Every time I tried my dress on I fell more and more in love with it. The belt for my dress was UNBELIEVABLE. It was the perfect accessory for my dress to give it that ‘wow’ factor.”
“I found Nicole and her team to be very knowledgeable in construction as well as fabrication of the gowns.”
“There is a wide variety and each designer seemed handpicked by Nicole to reach each type of bride.”
“The dressing rooms and robes Nicole provided were fabulous. The whole experience made me feel glamorous and classy.”
“Overall, Nicole had a great selection of gowns at all different price points. She did not have the same designers that everyone else seems to carry.”
“The store itself was super chic and decorated very well. It is a unique boutique with great style.”
“The Dress by Nicole offered quality service and personal attention. The best of the best.”(What does this mean?)
