A Curated bridal boutique for the rule breaking bride.
My experience with Belle Atelier was nothing short of incredible. I never could've imagined shopping for bridal wear in the middle of a pandemic but that is where I found myself. The shop was spacious and they made sure to space out appointments so everyone felt comfortable. I had so much fun trying on wedding attire and I was so impressed by the selection. As a 'non-traditional bride' I was very dissatisfied with the offerings at other salons but Belle's offerings were absolutely incredible. I tell everyone about the great experience I had. Loved being able to support Belle Atelier by purchasing the wedding jumpsuit of my dreams. Shout out to the best bridal wear staff in the biz! Bunch of lovely people :)
Being a COVID bride, there are many elements to my wedding that I would like to forget, BUT my experience at Belle Bridal is one I want to RELIVE! Giselle and the entire team at Belle Atelier is outstanding and brilliant at their jobs. The selection of dresses is sublime. This shop is unlike other bridal shops in Chicago because this whole team actually cares to find the right dress for every bride, not to just make a sale. Not once did I ever feel pressed or pushed into trying on a dress, buying an accessory, or anything in between. The other added element that I loved about this shop was the fact that alterations were done in house. Giselle, and the entire team, is highly skilled in alterations, and making sure whatever dress is picked fits the bride perfectly.
Was interested in finding my wedding dress at Belle Atelier and emailed the store ahead of time to arrange an appointment as well as order some dresses they did not appear to have in store for me to try on. Giselle, the owner, was super quick (and friendly) to reply to my inquiry and help acquire the dresses I was interested in. My appointment date finally arrived and I showed up to the store with my mom, sister, and grandma. The store has a very trendy/cool vibe to it and the dresses are really beautiful. Definitely more fashion-forward compared to the other bridal salons I visited downtown. My appointment was very fun and efficient and I really enjoyed the styles I tried on. I ultimately found a different dress I liked more elsewhere, but can honestly say my experience and customer service received at Belle Atelier was 10/10. You are in great hands when you shop here :)
Belle Atelier's shopping experience is unparalleled - by far the best all around appointment I had (out of six). From a private shopping experience, to amazing champagne, to being able to actually shop/look at everything on the floor (seems like a no brainer but is not the case everywhere), to amazing wisdom/tips from the stylists (Lauren was incredible), you can't go wrong here. Not to mention the coolest designers at actually attainable prices too.
I just had an appointment here to try on wedding dresses and basically from the moment we walked in the door it felt like they couldn’t wait for us to leave. I did not feel welcome or celebrated at all. They have a decent selection of dresses and I do really like some of the designers they carry, but I can’t look past the cold and unwelcoming customer service. When we arrived (on time) for our appointment, there were still people there from the previous appointment, so we started about 10 minutes later, at 3:40. The appointments are 1 hour, but at 4:20 I was told by the consultant that we only had 10 minutes left- despite them starting the appointment 10 minutes late. On top of all that, we had to wear masks the whole time and remove our shoes. They made me clean the bottom of my shoes before I could put them back on to try on with the dresses. I really wanted to like this place but the service honestly ruined the whole experience for me. I felt rushed and unwelcome rather than feeling celebrated like I should on such a big occasion.
