We recommend ordering your dress 10 to 12 months before your wedding date. During this time your gown will be shipped, received in our store and still allow for time to work with a seamstress for alterations.


On average, wedding gowns take anywhere between 7 and 10 months to arrive in our store. Due to COVID, shipping complications are more prevalent across all industries, including bridal.

Our gowns are in the $1,000 to $2,400 price range - our average gown price is $1,500 - although we do have some gowns above that range as well. 

Adore Bridal partners with Sunbit to provide a quick & easy financing option for your wedding dress. Benefits of Sunbit include:

  • Lightning fast approval
  • No hard credit check to apply

After you purchase your gown, we will provide a list of recommended seamstresses in our area - we do not do alterations in our store. Brides should contact their chosen seamstress and confirm the timeline best for their wedding date.

While we do have some dresses available to browse, a large majority of our gowns are in the backroom. Our knowledgable bridal stylists will listen to what you love, and pull dresses for you that are your style - and in your budget! Read more about our appointment process here

While we have hundreds of gowns in stock, they are at all varying price points and styles. Our tried and true process takes the overwhelm & stress out of finding your dress! We love our brides - and we do our homework! Before you even walk in the store - we've determined your style, wedding vibe and budget.


When you visit Adore Bridal, you won't be overwhelmed by all the dresses that aren't in budget or in the style or silhouette you desire. The last thing we want to do is have a bride fall in love with a dress that is out of her price range!

We do have "off the rack" options at Adore Bridal Illinois. Many dresses are only available to special order, but there are a great deal of gowns that can be purchased out of our stock.

No, we do not have a seamstress in store. After you purchase your gown, we will provide a list of recommended seamstresses.
