People come to see us for one of the most important times in their lives and it’s our priority to make sure it’s one remembered with great fondness and love. We care about each bride and the vision that she wants to create for her wedding. Sure, we sell elite designer bridal gowns from across the globe, we specialize in custom making bridal gowns, we have the best bridal consultants but what we really want is to make an impression that creates a memorable lifetime moment for our bride.

Do You Offer Alterations or Customizations?

Customizations are what sets us apart. We can take any dress and add or take away to make it exactly what the bride is looking for. We can build a dress from scratch, combine two gowns to make one, add sleeves, change a bodice, add embellishments. There is nothing we can’t do. Our design team has over 35 years of experience, including designing for top celebrities and Paris Fashion week.

What Will I Experience at an Appointment?

Bridal appointments last 2 hours, giving our brides plenty of time to try on many styles. When our bride first arrives, she is greeted by her consultant. During that time, we learn about the bride's vision for her day, what type of dress she thinks she’d like to look for and her budget. We pay close attention to the bride and the details she has given us. After that, the bride and consultant selectgowns. In the bridal dressing room is where all the fun starts and once she’s down to her favorite, we create a very special bridal moment for her and her guests. Let’s just say...keep the tissues handy!

We love these photos!

#5 Elegant Brides - Edwardsville, IL

We're Interviewing: Dawnelle, Owner

About the Shop!

Since starting Elegant Brides thirty (30) years ago, we have remained focused on brides and their wedding party. Many of the brides we have today are the daughters of brides we helped 20 - 30 years ago. And while we have had brides from as far away as Paris, France, most of our brides are from southern Illinois and the St. Louis metropolitan area.

We offer wedding gowns from Casablanca, Maggie Sottero and Mori Lee along with bridesmaid dresses from Bill Levkoff, Mori Lee and Jasmine (B2 and Belsoie). But mostly offer service and the experience that comes from 30 years in the business.

What are the Price Ranges?

We have wedding gowns from $500 to $2,400 with the typical gown in the $1,100 to $1,200 range.

What other Bridal Accessories do you offer?

In addition to bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses we offer veils, headpieces, belts, jewelry and shoes to complete your wedding day wardrobe. We also rent (and sell) tuxedos and suits for the groom and groomsmen.

Dawnelle, can you show us some photos?

Do you offer alterations or customizations?

Yes to both! We are one of the few bridal shops in the area that offers in-house alterations by seamstresses with decades of experience altering wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses. And while our alterations department can customize your dress, we frequently work with some of our vendors, to customize a dress to the bride's liking. The process starts with a request to the designer who then supplies us with sketches for the brides approval.

What will I experience at an appointment?

First, one of our experienced bridal consultants will start a bridal file that includes information on your wedding such as, date, venue and the number of attendants. She will also ask if you have a particular budget and styles you may be considering. She will then help you select gowns from our racks and help you try them on. She will also record the styles you tried on. You are free to take as many pictures as you like. While most appointments are booked to last 1-1/2 hours, we won't have you on a timer. Your dress is an important decision and don't want to rush you.

What you won't experience is a pressure sale. Brides are under enough stress at this time as it is and we don't want to add to it. While many brides (and their moms) know immediately when they have found, THE DRESS, you may still want to think about it, sleep on it and come back another day.

How can I set up an appointment?

The best way is to give us a call at 618.656.5353.

What is my relationship to the featured wedding vendors? I am always transparent with my audience. These vendors were hand selected by me to feature in this post. They were each charged a small fee to cover my time in creating their feature as this provides a means for me to earn an income. I reached out to them and offered the opportunity, they did not seek me out looking to advertise. I only feature venues and vendors I truly think are great!
