About Adore

what we do

We are here to walk with you in finding the bridal gown that you Adore. We have searched out the best designers in a variety of price points and styles for brides in Central Illinois, Northwest Illinois, Northwest Illinois, Springfield, Peoria Illinois, and beyond. But we want to do even more than find you a designer wedding dress. At our bridal shop, we will be working with you to create your complete bridal look.

It's not just about the designer wedding dress, but it is the belt, the veil, the jewelry and even the shoes that make the bride.

Then we move onto your bridal party. Our selection of tuxedos, suits and bridesmaid dresses will make sure that the men and women that are standing up with you to share in your most special day to help to complete the most perfect cohesive look.

We are pretty obsessive about creating complete bridal looks, so get ready for us to be very involved in yours!

You will work with your bridal stylist whose goal will be to have you walk away from your time with us having found the bridal gown you Adore. Because of our confidence in us finding your dream wedding dress you will be connecting with your stylist before your appointment. She will be doing her homework to have some ideas and things pulled for you before you even walk in. This process is so important as we have become known for finding your dream wedding dress before you even walk in our door!

Allow us to do the proper homework and fully prepare for your personalized experience with us. And that way when you come in for your appointment you can allow us to do all the hard work and all you have to do is try on pretty things until you find the gown that you Adore.

We will then move onto completing your bridal look through wedding accessories and then bridal party attire. We offer bridal accessories, veils, and bridal shoes for Peoria, Springfield, Central Illinois area and the Northwest Illinois area!

Adore opened in September 2011 with the vision of creating a complete gown-finding experience. Our wedding store is 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 dresses for weddings in a variety of styles and colors. We also have traditional and more non-traditional lace and floral dresses. We carry tuxedos and suits for rentals for the groom and the other men in the bridal party.

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 wedding veils, jewelry, head pieces and even shoes.

We will then complete the process by making sure the wedding dress is the perfect fit through our alterations process.

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, IL, Bloomington, IL, Springfield, IL, Peoria, IL, Galesburg, IL, and even the Quad Cities. We promise to make your drive to Adore totally worth it!

We believe that just as every bride has a different personality, so does every wedding gown. Finding the perfect bridal gown for a bride is about finding that perfect match. Sometimes that comes through the wedding dress alone, sometimes that comes through customizing the wedding dress through alterations or accessories to make it uniquely yours!

We are passionate about what we do as we want you to be able to feel like your most confident you on your most important day. And we believe that what you are wearing will be the ultimate statement to all of those that are sharing your day. It's also the once piece from your wedding that you can hold on to to look back on, share with future generations and see in images from your photographer.

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.
