Bridal Sign Up

Bebe Bridal

Glamour Closet

Boutique Bliss!

Shortly after the River North store opened in March, Glamour Closet sold a new Vera Wang dress, originally priced at $16,000, for only $3,700 to one very lucky bride. No, this isn’t a fairy tale. The wedding gown outlet, which also has locations in San Francisco and Los Angeles, acquires sample dresses straight from designers and bridal salons around the country, and then sells them at 25 to 75 percent off. Some gowns run for as little as $500.

This spring also marked the unveiling of Bebe Bridal on Oak Street. The boutique moved all of its ready-to-wear to the first and second floors, devoting the third floor to the brand’s inaugural collection of bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses and accessories.
