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!

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!

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!!

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.

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! :)

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

Cindy and the staff here at Eva's was kind , considerate and helpful! Thank you ladies! Sincerely, Vernita Miracle

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 dresseswere 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 withpeople 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 picturesof 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 greatexperience at Eva's!
