What Brides Think Of Eva's Bridal International
"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!

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!!
- 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! :)

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!"

"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"

"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!"
