Adore opened its bridal boutique in September 2011 with the vision of creating a complete gown-finding experience. We are more than just a place to come try on wedding dresses. We want to walk with you to find the best wedding dresses around, and the bridal gown you Adore and complete your bridal look. We offer many wedding gowns in a variety of styles and colors. We have traditional wedding dresses, more non-traditional lace and floral dresses, and romantic wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses Peoria, Springfield, Central Illinois, and Northwest Illinois brides will Adore. We carry a wide variety of bridal wear, including tuxedos and suits for rentals for the groom and the other men in the bridal party. When you are looking for the best bridal store in the area, schedule an appointment with us.

We also feel that every detail of the bride's attire is what makes her stand out as the bride. So we carry a full line of wedding accessories including veils, jewelry, head pieces, and even shoes. We have had brides come to us from all across the country, but primarily serve brides in the Central Illinois and Northwest Illinois areas - from Champaign, Bloomington, Springfield, Peoria, Galesburg and even the Quad Cities. We promise to make your drive to Adore totally worth it!

Kathie has been doing bridal alterations for 30 years. Although she grew up as an army brat all over the country and world, her adult years have made the Peoria area her home. She loves the detail work of transforming a dress into THE dress fit perfectly for you! Sometimes that is simply basic alterations to make the gown fit perfectly to your body and other times it means custom changes to make a gown uniquely yours.

I had a great consultation with Adore Bridal! Everyone was so welcoming and kind throughout the entire process. I loved that we did not have to search for any dresses and it was completed for us when we got there. Staff members made my entire group feel as if we were the only ones in the building and it was such a special moment when I finally said yes to the dress. Thank you so much Adore Bridal!

"Thank you so much."
