What Brides Think Of Eva's Bridal International
"Such a great experience and every single dress they had the bride try on were winners! She really listened to her and gave great recommendations based on body type. Positive and efficient environment!"
"I went shopping for dresses in many boutiques around the downtown Chicago area and never found a dress that truly felt like me. Finally, I tried Eva's Bridal International and feel beyond blessed to have had this experience.
Eduardo helped me find my perfect wedding dress and finally end my search! He was incredibly kind and thoughtful. I have never worked with anyone who had so much passion for what they did. I know he valued me leaving happy more than making a sale. I feel lucky to have had his help.
Finally, Eva's had an incredible selection of dresses- all types and price ranges. I had a general idea of what I wanted but didn't always have the words to describe it. Eduardo was patient and brought out dress after dress. He slowly helping me narrow down what I wanted (even going over our time limit) until I could confidently say "Yes to the Dress"!
If I could give more stars I would. I would recommend everyone start at Eva's Bridal and cross their fingers they get paired with Eduardo. Good luck and happy engagement!"
"I came to Eva's recently with the intention of just looking around. I was immediately impressed by the size of the store and attentiveness by the staff. My consultant was Regina, who was very professional, friendly, and importantly encouraged me to be brutally honest. I walked in not knowing that there was a trunk show going on where the designer was in-house. Both he and Regina were very attentive and listened to my feedback without any hesitation. I ended up saying yes to my dress! They even popped a bottle of proseco so I felt like I had a real say-yes-to-the-dress moment.
The appointment process was smooth enough. I sent a request online and they called me to confirm the appointment. On the day of, they were able to accommodate up to 4 guests in a very private, closed off area. There were large mirrors on 3 sides so it was easy to see every angle of every dress. Due to COVID restrictions they only allowed the bride to walk through the showroom, so unfortunately the people I brought along were not able to look through dresses for me. That being said, I really appreciated the ability to look for myself at least (the dress I bought was actually the first one I pulled for myself). Another thing -- they do NOT allow photos except of the dress that you buy. They do allow FaceTiming but it's still a bummer not to have photos for posterity. Therefore I would not recommend brides coming here alone if you can help it.
I was very pleasantly surprised by my experience and would definitely recommend Eva's."
"Alyssa was my consultant and she was absolutely amazing. From the very beginning she listened to everything I said and captured who I was in every dress she selected. I ended up falling in love with the first gown I tried on. I am beyond thankful to her and the entire staff. I would recommend this place 1000%."
"My experience began with shopping for dresses with one of the dress consultants, Gerry. When I arrived, Gerry asked all the relevant questions to gain an understanding of what I was and was not looking for, details I am seeking on a dress and my budget. Gerry made the dress shopping experience a memorable one and was able to present me the dress that had everything I was looking for.
The alteration appointments are separated to ensure time is dedicated to different parts of the dress. The seamstress, Ursula was amazing!! She communicated with me throughout the entire alterations process, and I was satisfied with the result of each alteration.
I had a great experience overall and definitely recommend for all to begin their dress shopping at Eva’s Bridal International. You will experience friendliness, professionalism, and great communication from the team throughout your entire dress purchasing process."
"Had such an incredible experience here as the maid of honor to a dear friend! Our consultant Eduardo did a PHENOMENAL job guiding us through the huge selection of wedding dresses at Eva’s. My friend broadly knew what she wanted, but we were novices to the wedding dress market. Eduardo was able to hone in on exactly the kind of dress we were looking for so that each one she tried on was a top contender. After having been to multiple bridal salons in the Chicago area and finding nothing that we wanted, Eva’s was such a breath of fresh air. Because the selection was so large, we weren’t limited to what is trending now or what this season’s collections were. We were able to find the perfect dress — the one she had been imagining. Without Eduardo, we would have been lost among the many dresses, but he really knows his craft. I couldn’t imagine a better experience or a kinder or more knowledgeable consultant. Eva’s saved the day."
"Today I found the wedding dress of my dreams with Alyssa as my stylist- I would highly recommend her, she truly listened to me and was committed to making sure I was happy and confident in my decision. She had great creative advice and was so kind! Eva’s had an amazing selection of different styles and prices to fit any bride!"
"I came into my appointment just wanting to try on one dress that I had been admiring for about a month. First let me shout out the owner who made an accommodation for us that is usually not allowed, I really appreciated it. Any way, I believe Caroline was my consultant and she was awesome. I showed her the dress that I loved and she went and found it instantly. Next, I told her my budget and we both picked additional gowns to try on. She encouraged me to try on the one from the picture first and I did, and fell in love. She had all of the right recommendations, she made me feel confident, and was very pleasant to me and my family. I end up buying the dress, which I didn't except, and got me a good deal. This was my first time trying on gowns and I'm glad I chose Eva's."
"Such a pleasant experience as I have (2) dresses to buy for 2022 family weddings. Large selection of MOB/MOG dresses. Edwardo is a master! I loved the honesty and the help I received from staff. Great place to buy your dress!!!"
"Had a great experience with my bridal consultant Cindy! She was amazing and helped me find the dress of my dreams. She also made me feel very welcome and comfortable as a plus size bride! Cannot recommend her enough!!"
"Extremely satisfied with my appointment! Regina made sure I stayed in my budget and had a dress I loved! I appreciate her and the commitment she made to finding my perfect dress!! She is truly an amazing bridal consultant, extremely informative and attentive! It felt like I was the only “bride to be” in the store!! Thanks Regina for everything!!"
"I’d personally want to know to thank REGINA for being so the best Bridal assistance. She and Eva’s staff were exceptional. I found my dress. Thanks again!!!"
"Pat was my stylist. She was the sweetest person ever. Made sure i was 100% satisfied with my dress. They entire staff was friendly to me and my bridal party. The dresses here are gorgeous, its impossible not to find one. I said yes to the dress."
"I had a great experience at Eva's! I had already found a dress at another bridal shop that I absolutely loved, but it was the first shop I had gone to, so I wanted to check out a few other bridal shops before making my decision. Caroline was wonderful! She made me feel comfortable and knew that I was looking for a dress to beat the one I had already found. She listened to what I was looking for and stayed within my budget. Great experience and I highly recommend Caroline!"
"This was by far the best experience I have had a bridal store. The employee's were amazing and Alyssa made me feel right at home. They really made me feel safe. God bless this company!"
"I got engaged in September 2019 and immediately got my dress. After absolutely awful service elsewhere, I was feeling frustrated. Eva’s knew just how to turn that frown upside down. They listened to my wants and concerns and explained every single thing to me. I am not a big dress person and they made me fall in love with the most beautiful dress. Even during Covid, their communication with me was nothing short of excellent and I’m so glad we got my dress and my girls dresses there. I am so thankful for the wonderful customer service they have and how patient they are as they are truly experts. THANK YOU EVA’S INTERNATIONAL!!!"
"What a positive experience! I really appreciated their precautions during these trying times. If you want a dress you should HEAD HERE!"
"This was such a wonderful and professional place. The customer service was out of this world. 10/10 would recommend!"
"Had a wonderful experience today with all the ladies there! Cindy was so very nice getting me in right away for the next available appointment, as I didn't realize they required them. Kathleen took amazing care of me, honest feedback, knew exactly what I wanted, pulled all the right dresses and made the experience fun. Now it's off to alterations! They are a lifesaver in my need to get a dress quickly... two week countdown! Thank you Eva's!"
"I had an amazing experience at Eva's International with Cindy. She did a fantastic job of finding some of the most beautiful dresses I've ever seen. She took every comment into consideration for each dress and ended up picking out something that had everything I was looking for and more. Thank you Cindy for helping me find my dream dress! I can't wait to come back for the rest of the process."
"Alyssa was such a rockstar!!! She suggested and brought out great dresses and knew exactly what to do to make a bride feel special and beautiful on such a special day!"
"Eduardo was simply amazing! From showing me dresses that I *thought* I wanted to getting me into dresses that I never in a million years would have thought looked good on me! He made the whole experience wonderful and made me feel so comfortable. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave me a huge boost of confidence that I needed. He stayed right in my price range. If you're looking to feel like the bride of all brides please go here! The dresses are gorgeous and the customer service is outstanding."
"I made an appointment to look at bridesmaid dresses with three of my bridesmaids. Ivan was our consultant and he was so friendly and helpful. Now, I am from the area but moved to Arizona almost two years ago for my fiance's work and we are having our wedding in Arizona. I had not planned to go gown shopping for myself as it just didn't make sense to me to buy my dress in Illinois when I live in Arizona and am getting married there, but my mom was really pushing to get me to try dresses on so she could be there in person to see me do this.
We asked if it was possible to switch from Bridesmaids to Wedding gowns and they found the time for us to do this, and of course with Ivan's wonderful help I found my dress. They were so understanding at Eva's Bridal International and they are even going to ship my dress to me in Arizona. The only thing I am disappointment about is that I won't get a chance to use their alterations services which they cap at $400 for everything. I see that people are complaining about not being able to take pictures of their dresses they are trying on, but I do know that this is not just a policy at this store, it's a policy at a lot of bridal stores, so when they told me that I wasn't too surprised by it.
I received my dress, veil, and head piece and I love them all!! "

"Eva's Bridal was just amazing in helping me with my last minute wedding with only 5 weeks to plan. Eva's was able to help me find a dress off the rack that was within my style that was able to be altered to fit just wonderfully. The seamstress was so helpful with her ideas and ways to make the dress mine in such a short amount of time. I am so grateful for all the amazing help from the consultants & seamstress to the owners who were willing to work with me in this very stressful time of our lives. Our wedding was small but everything I wanted it to be and the pictures of me in my dress are even better then I imagined them to be. Thank you Eva's for everything!"
"I had a wonderful experience at Eva’s! Kristina, my bridal consultant was awesome! They have a great selection and dresses for plus size brides to actually try on. This was my first stop and I bought the third dress I tried on. After telling Kristina what I was looking for she did a great job selecting dresses for me to try on. All of the staff were friendly, professional, and knowledgeable! I highly recommend this place. Thanks, Kristina and Eva’s Bridal International."
"I am so happy that I chose to go to Eva's Bridals International Orland Park! They have so many dresses to choose from! I was helped by Debbie. Debbie was so helpful and sweet! She kept to my budget, found the most beautiful dresses, and never made me feel rushed. If you go here, I definitely recommend requesting Debbie! She helped me find the dress of my dreams and I was able to say yes to the dress!"
" Beyond impressed with my experience! I went in and was welcomed by smiling staff. Kathleen helped through the whole process and it was amazing how much she truly knew what she was doing. She guided me from picking the color to the style of my wedding dress. Not only that, but she treated me like a friend. She worked with my budget and when I left this establishment I just knew I made the right choice of going here. I said yes to the dress! Now I just cannot wait for my future husband to see me in it. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for their perfect wedding dress 100%. Kathleen you are awesome at what you do! Thank you for all your help!"
"I have to laugh at the things people are complaining about 1. Of COURSE you should always make an appointment when trying on dresses 2. Almost all nicer bridal boutiques do not let you take pictures until you buy the dress people!!. I recently bought my dress at Eva’s and had the most amazing experience. My sales consultant was totally on top of it and understood my vision perfectly. I ended up buying the first dress she picked out for me. It was almost identical to the picture I showed her. She wasn’t pushy at all and worked within my budget. I HIGHLY recommend Eva’s on La Grange!"
"Went here with my daughter after a friend recommended it. Our consultant was the best. Made the whole experience relaxed and fun. My daughter found the perfect dress and they were able to help us work it out with our budget. Great dresses. Great service."
"The service I received at Eva's Bridal International exceeded my expectations for wedding dress shopping! I couldn't have had a more helpful, fun spirited individual help me find the dress of my dreams, she was so knowledgeable. It was a great shopping experience, and I'm glad I only had to do it once!"

"My process with Eva's was pleasant from start to finish. I inquired about a dress I found online and received a call back from the store that same day stating that while they did not have that exact dress, they had one extremely similar and asked if I would like to schedule an appointment to come try it on.
When I arrived at my appointment, the staff was extremely friendly from the moment I walked in the door. When I informed them I had an appointment at 12:30 they immediately knew who I was and even had the dress I inquired about over the phone already pulled on a rack waiting for me. Kristina ended up being my consultant for the day and she was AMAZING! I gave her a list of dresses that I liked and she started pulling similar styles for me to try on. She was patient with me and let me stay in each dress as long as I needed. Ultimately, I ended up buying my dream dress that SHE picked out! She really knew what she was doing, and made the process so much easier than I expected. I highly recommend her. While the staff was suggesting I buy the dress that day (which is honestly to be expected anywhere, I mean they are trying to make a sale), I didn't feel they were pushy or demanding at any time. I felt like they listened to my concerns and gave reasonable advice.
Also, I will mention that they do not allow pictures when trying the dresses on. This didn't really bother me. However,
they let you take as many pictures as you want once you have committed to buying your dress! I don't typically leave reviews, but felt this was necessary based on all the bad reviews I was reading about Eva's (which I'm glad didn't scare me away- I couldn't be happier with my experience). If you're thinking about coming here, I suggest you give it a chance. And ask for Kristina :)"

"I had the most amazing experience with Cindy. This was the third store I visited that day, and I almost ended up cancelling the appointment. I'm so glad I didn't!!The previous store I went to had me so defeated. The salesperson kept encouraging me to try on dresses out of my budget and I left the store thinking there is no way I'll find what I want within budget. I was also running 20 minutes late to the appointment at Eva's Bridal International, and the store was closing in 40 minutes. But thankfully they allowed me to keep my appointment. I met with Cindy, who was so friendly, kind, and compassionate. She did not rush me at all. She asked me very detailed questions about my budget. And instead of making me feel like I was delusional, she started hunting for dresses that would work for me. She pulled a couple of dresses, but I ended up only trying one on. It was perfect! I fell in love with it. Cindy gave me a veil to try on and it really just completed the look. Thankfully she was also thoughtful about which veils to show me, because every one she showed me was still within my total budget. She was also able to give me a discount on both the dress and the veil, which was incredibly appreciated.
While we were going over the paperwork, I realized I was a little unsure about whether I would need additional length when I wore heels. Cindy walked me back to the dressing room to put the gown back on. She told me she would rather have me be sure and have peace of mind by actually seeing it on with heels. At this point, the store had been closed for almost an hour. Cindy's patience and graciousness truly made the appointment a success. She made me feel comfortable and not pressured at all about making a decision. I am incredibly happy that I didn't cancel my appointment and I am so happy to have found my dream dress!"

"I went to three other bridal shops before coming to Eva's and boy am I glad I came here. The selection of dresses is wonderful, and by far this was probably the best bridal consultant/sales person I have had. Cheyenne helped me on Sunday afternoon and was amazing. She listened to me when I told her what I was looking for, when I told her a specific designer whose dresses I liked she took me to those to look at and was very mindful of my budget. I never felt like she was trying to push the sale, instead she made me feel valued which I didn't at some of the other places I went to. I plan on looking for bridesmaids dresses here and using Cheyenne. She is amazing! She helped me say Yes to the dress! I would def. give this place a look when shopping for bridal gowns."

This review is mainly because of Alyssa. She is the best and she KNOWS her stuff! I have been working with her for the past 3 months from wedding gowns - to veils - to bridesmaids dresses and she has been so great to work with and super helpful! If you have a vision - she knows exactly what you are looking for. You may think a certain style won't look great, but if she recommends it, TRY IT. She KNOWS what she is doing and what looks good on a certain body type.

Ask for ALYSSA!! She was the sweetest person and helped our family out a lot. My sister is the one getting married and she catered to her every need. Alyssa had a great personality and made the whole experience of finding a dress really fun. When I get married, I will be coming to her and maybe she will convince me to wear a veil!! Great store overall and the selections and prices you can't find anywhere else!
- Lauren M. from Palos Park, IL
Randomly went in here to look for a dress and came out with a great experience. I have recently decided to plan and have my wedding in a little less than 3 months so obviously the dress was a big concern. I needed one off the rack and I also was searching for one that I could shorten since I want a short wedding dress. I was very impressed by the amount of dresses they had in my modest budget and the availability of the staff to help me. I found the dress of my dreams in my budget. Overall, I think every wedding shop is similar in there approach but Eva's allowed me to take my time and enjoy the moment. I would suggest booking on a weekday when you can get more attentive service. Also beware of the parking..it isn't fun!
- Amanda K. from Romeoville, IL
Fantastic!!! I'm probably the most confused bride on the planet, wasn't sure between a ball gown, mermaid, fit and flare, you name it I wanted to tryit, I had been to over 6 bridal salons and tried on over 30 dresses!!! My consultant was AMAZING! The shop has a huge selection of dresses! I highly recommend this place!!
- Michelle A. from Chicago, IL
CINDY is amazing!!!! make sure you ask for her when you go to the store! I bought 2 wedding dresses from Eva;s international, for my 2 weddings next march, and she helped me a lot!, i wanted 2 different styles and she understood exactly what i was looking for! i ended up buying one dress i would never thought i would wear, but she recommended it and she was right! Believe me... i tried at least 60 dresses before going to Eva's international, and i have not seen any store ( in Chicago or in the suburbs) with a better variety.
- Judith M. from Chicago, IL
Cindy was the best consultant I could've asked for. With years of experience working with brides, she understood exactly what I wanted. Cindy pulled lots of sample dresses, and I fell in love with the first dress I tried on. Eva's had a great selection, great consultants, and great great amazing prices. I am very happy with my experience at Eva's.Thanks, Cindy! :)
- Karolina S. from Lockport, IL
I had a great experience at Eva's today! And bought a beautiful wedding gown. I thought the customer service was excellent, and my consultant was great! The gowns were beautiful and I was able to work with my budget. I didn't feel pushed to buy anything, or any type of rudeness mentioned in some of these comments? My Mom and I had a great time, I would recommend for sure!
- Eve L. from Chicago, IL
Alyssa is a wonderful consultant! I went into the shop knowing I wanted a sexy yet feminine dress. She pulled the most beautiful dresses that complimented my figure. Alyssa even managed to successfully navigate a disagreement between my mom and me. They do have a no pictures until you pay policy but Alyssa was beyond understanding in letting me walk around the store for some time to look at the dress at multiple angles.She even called over another consultant, Kathleen who is also great, to help me with my decision.
- Candace P. from Chicago, IL
Cheyenne was amazing! In general, Eva's had a good selection and prices were comparable to other bridal stores. A bonus since I have a large bridal party is that once you order more than four dresses Eva's offers a discount! Sizing and ordering went very smoothly, even for my out of state girl. Though I came prepared and already had her get her sizes taken at a bridal store by her. I also loved that there were no hidden costs, the dress was the price we were told, the only extra cost was tax. Eva's also worked with the girls so if needed they were able to pay half the day we ordered and then pay the rest when they pick the dress up :)

"I had a wonderful experience with Cindy! She made fabulous suggestions and is very knowledgeable! We found the perfect dress for my Vegas wedding! We had such a great experience that we went back for my sister's bridesmaid gown. We had the pleasure of working with Alyssa who was also knowledgeable and super friendly. She helped us pick out the perfect color and style dress to accent my gown! Kudos Eva's! You are 2 for 2 so far in my book!"
- Angela S. from Oak Forest, IL
"I would recommend Cindy to any bride. I had a vision of a style that I loved and she nailed it! I couldn't be happier with the dress that she found for me. It was the second dress that I tried on there and knew that was THE dress! I went to a few national bridal stores, but they don't have specialty designers. This dress is so much more unique and detailed than any other dress I tried on. I just made my deposit and the dress is promised to be here in September. My best friend came here for her dress last year. We also got all of our bridesmaids dresses for her wedding. Everything was perfect!"
- Jessica B. from Mokena, IL
"Bought my dress from there yesterday and have nothing but good things to say. Alyssa helped me and she was absolutely fantastic! She listened to what i liked/didn't like, never went over my budget, and didn't make me feel like i had to rush like some of the other bridal stores i had been to. I ended up finding exactly what i wanted and it only took 2 dresses because she is THAT good haha i would definitely recommend them to a friend!"
- Amy H. from Plano, IL
"Went to Evas to look for my wedding gown after a horrific experience at David's Bridal. Against my better judgment, I popped in without an appointment and was helped by Kemeko. She was great! Helped get me in and out of the gowns and made them to fit so I could picture what it would look like altered. She listened to what I was looking for and helped me find the most amazing gown. When I thought there was no hope for me to feel beautiful in a dress, from my David's experience, I left Evas excited and couldn't wait to put the gown on again!"
Shelly G. from Lockport, IL
"Cindy took really good care of me. I had such a wonderful experience here with Cindy! Thank you for helping me find mine beautiful dress! I had such a horrible experience at David's Bridal. Cindy and the staff here at Eva's was kind , considerate and helpful! Thank you ladies! Sincerely, Vernita Miracle"
- Vernita M. from Burbank, IL
"I just ordered my dress here the other day. It was my third time trying on dresses & I have to say it was by far my best experience out of the three.I went to White Satin Bridal in Plainfield which was nice & David's which was not so nice & Eva's was definitely the best. I liked that the dresses were actually on the hangers & not in bags so you browse through them & actually see what they looked like. I liked that it wasn't jam packed with people like David's. And the girl that helped me was totally amazing! Ask for ALYSSA!! She was so helpful & patient & I showed her a few pictures of dresses I liked & she picked out ones just like them. She didn't pressure me at all, didn't show me dresses that weren't in my budget & made mefeel so comfortable. She's GOOD at what she does! So in my opinion, I would not look at the other negative reviews because I had a great experience at Eva's!"
