I had an absolutely wonderful dress shopping experience at Cloud Nine. They got in touch with me ahead of my appointment asking me to send them my sizing info as well as any pictures of dresses I liked so they could get an idea of my personal style, what I was looking for in a dress, and any other inspirations. When I arrived they already had pulled several dresses based on what I’d sent them (all of them absolutely fabulous) for a personalized shopping experience with my own assistant to help me in and out of the dress selections. This was also something I was worried about because I’m a plus size so sometimes that limits my options. With Cloud Nine I was pleasantly surprised at the plethora of options they have for all sizes! My assistant was very friendly and knowledgeable, and felt like I was being helped by a friend rather than a stranger. You could tell they were just as interested in getting to know their brides as they were helping them find the perfect dress. The boutique isn’t overly large like some bridal shops tend to be, so it had a nice intimate, private almost VIP feel which was very nice. They also sent me home with a gift box of goodies (I won’t spoil the surprise) b/c I said yes to the dress there. I can’t recommend them enough! From the above and beyond service, to the dress selection, and atmosphere I HIGHLY recommend Cloud Nine!

Shelby was my wedding dress guide and she was AMAZING. This was the first place I went to try on dresses. I went in with ideas of what I thought I wanted and Shelby pulled THE dress. It’s something that I would have never seen myself in, but I’m glad she had me try it on. I wasn’t sure about it at first but as soon as I got all clipped in, I fell in love! She said she had a feeling that I would look stunning in it and she was right! I felt confident, comfortable and beautiful. I did not want to try on other dresses (even though I did) and I could not wait to re-visit “the one.” I also didn’t feel pressured, which was what I felt might happen…phew! I cannot wait for my first fitting! Thank you so much!

Shelby was AMAZING to work with. She eased all my nerves, brought the best dresses and listened to my concerns. She brought the perfect creativity to help me find the most beautiful and FUN dress ☺️

Exceeded my expectations! I worked with Rebekah and she was very patient and kind. When I arrived, they already had a bunch of dresses picked out and let me choose which ones I wanted to try based on my style. I didn’t think it would be that easy to find the one. I went in with an idea of what I wanted and slowly worked my way to a dress I never thought I could pull off. I also want to mention that she listened to me, and continually worked to find the perfect dress. All of the ladies were very engaging and really made the experience great. 10/10, would recommend over and over.

This Bridal Boutique is literally the most amazing place I have ever been too! Every one was super nice and they actually care about you having a great experience! Their products are super nice and good quality and comfy as well! Definitely recommend going here if you are looking for either bridal dresses or even a bridesmaid dress. And they have a dress for everyone’s wants and needs. I went in to get a dress for my maternity shoot and I found something that made me feel beautiful! Definitely recommend this place to anyone who is wanting a welcoming, at home experience! Plus they are affordable!

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience at Cloud Nine! From the second I walked in to the second I left, everyone was so nice and great! They have created such a safe/fun environment for women to come and find their dream dress. I hope I never need another dress but if I do, I know where I will be going!!

- Abbi O., East Peoria, IL

Shelby was absolutely amazing to work with! I told her everything I looked for in a dress and I walked out saying yes to a dress that was nothing I imagined. She really opened my eyes to different styles. She really made this special day so incredible!

- Courtney T, Galesburg, IL

Loved dress shopping here! Was such a warm, pleasant place. They made me feel so comfortable trying on dresses and helped me pick my perfect dress! They have a perfect selection that’s all reasonably priced.

I LOVED my experience at Cloud Nine Bridal! Shelby made it such a fun and easy process! They had gowns already picked out based on what my inspirations were and they were beautiful!! They made me feel so great about myself, comfortable and confident! I would recommend Cloud Nine Bridal to all my friends and family!! ❤️

- Kassidy Q, Monmouth, IL

Thank you guys so much for being so helpful and down to earth in helping me find the perfect dress for my day and everyone is so sweet!!!

- Kaitlyn Galman, Rochester, IL

The ladies that work here are all so amazing! They were so kind and make the experience so much less stressful! The feel of the one on one and kindness here is so much better then a box store. The fact that I went back weeks later to pay for my dress and they knew me when I walked in was truly amazing. There was not one ugly dress in the store every single dress was beyond gorgeous and it was hard to choose just one but they ladies were great and it was nice being able to talk with the seamstress while I was trying on so I could address my concerns with the dress and she would tell me if it was something she could fix it change.

- Megan Louise Spring, Elmwood, IL

I had the best experience at Cloud Nine! I came in so nervous and everyone there made me feel so comfortable! I couldn’t imagine finding my dress anywhere else! A day I will truly never forget! Thank you Cloud Nine for the best day and experience ever!

- Jenna R, Pekin, IL

Highly, highly recommend Cloud Nine! They had so many beautiful dresses that match my style already picked out before I got there. Such an easy, fun experience. Loved my appointment and how they listened to all of my feedback and used it to find the one!

- Morgan K, Metamora, IL

The best experience I could have imagined! Bekah made me feel at ease during the entire time! I came in not having ever tried on dresses and left falling absolutely in love with my dream dress. Bekah truly listened to everything I said and was able to find my dress. The entire team at Cloud 9 works together and all cheer you on and celebrate with you 💕 Their genuine love, support and excitement for you truly shines through! Absolutely an experience I’ll remember forever! I cannot wait to wear my dress on my big day! Thank you to Bekah and Cloud 9 for everything!

- Lauren K, Peoria, IL
Had so much fun finding my dress! The staff was amazing and so friendly. I felt like they genuinely cared about my wants and needs for finding the perfect dress and listened to all my opinions and ideas. Found exactly what I was looking for and was super helpful in adding a couple things or changing something. Can’t wait until my big day when I know I’ll feel and look amazing!
- Katie P, Minonk, IL

Five out of five stars! This place, the staff, & the atmosphere is magical! Thank you so much for making my experience so memorable!

I had an amazing experience with Cloud Nine! They texted me a few days before my appointment and asked me to send them some inspiration pics I had pinned, and then when we arrived they had multiple dresses all ready for me to try on. I’m also a plus size bride and was worried about not being able to find anything that fit me, but they had so many options! Rebekah was my consultant and she was so sweet and patient and friendly, and she really paid attention to the details I liked and didn’t like as we went through options, until she had an idea of my style. She went and pulled a dress she had a feeling I would like, which was not one of the originals we were trying on, and that ended up being the one!! She helped me focus on what I liked, not what my mom and best friend liked, and really made it an easy and fun experience. I will tell all of my friends who get married in the future to check out Cloud Nine Bridal!!

- Jenn S, Peoria, IL

The ladies at Cloud Nine provided amazing customer service. I went to check out the Sample Sale and the dresses were gorgeous. The crew at cloud nine made my experience a memorable one. Thanks ladies for helping me say yes to the dress

- Elle Ehresman, Bloomington, IL

Cloud Nine was wonderful! The women there were so helpful, even though it was evident I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted. They were patient with me and allowed me to take my time. I loved the fact that they were genuinely kind and excited when I found my dress! I would highly recommend this boutique to anyone looking for their wedding gown!

- Rachel Kurtz

12/10 recommend! Drove 2 hours just to come to this boutique! The staff and owner worked personally with me to find my DREAM gown. If you’re thinking about going, just do it you will NOT regret it!

- Savanna L, Jacksonville, IL
The service here was amazing. I sent over a few dresses that I liked and my size beforehand and she picked out a handful from the ones that they have. First dress I tried on was THE Dress. As a plus size lady I was a little worried with the selection but that wasn’t a worry.
- Marissa A, Canton, IL

Cloud Nine Bridal Boutique was the perfect place for me to find my wedding dress. Shelby was so helpful and the first dress I tried on ended up being my wedding dress! I went home with the perfect veil and earrings as well. I would highly recommend because they really take care of their brides here!

- Frankie K, Washington, IL

My experience was perfect. I worked with Rebekah during my visit. She touched base via text prior to the appointment to get any ideas (verbal, pictures, etc.) of what I was looking for. We got there slightly before our appointment and she started working with us right then. She was very patient and had pulled perfect dresses prior to us arriving. I generally have a hard time making decisions, but I easily decided on a dress after 8 or so dresses. I made a comment that I wished the tassels were on the dress I loved, and she pulled out an addition that PERFECT. I’m so happy we traveled up, and thanks to Rebekah for making my experience memorable and wonderful.

- Lauren S, Springfield, IL

I had absolutely the best experience finding my wedding dress at Cloud 9! It was the second dress I tried on here, and I was hesitant because I wanted ¾ sleeves, but Ashley (who we worked with through the whole wedding dress process!) assured me that the seamstress Chris (who is PHENOMENAL!) could create them for me, so we bought the dress and I AM SO HAPPY we did!! Chris made absolutely beautiful sleeves that looked like they had always been part of my dress—no one had any idea they were added! Ashley and her team were amazing every step of the way—they knew my family and some of my bridesmaids by name, were always ready to go for fittings, had such great advice, and really made the whole process a joy. I was also so pleased with the reasonable price for the dress & alterations, especially considering how many fittings we had!! Absolutely loved being a Cloud 9 bride, and I would recommend starting your wedding dress search here—you won’t need to go anywhere else!

- Lauren Hanson

Rebekah was beyond amazing! If I could give Cloud Nine 10 stars I would! I was able to book my appointment online which was so convenient. They were perfectly okay with my 10 month old niece tagging along which not all places allow that! I ended up saying yes to a dress that was not what I had envisioned at all but its absolutely perfect. Thank you Rebekah for all your help!!!!

- Samantha C., Gilson, IL

My experience here couldn’t have been more perfect! Shelby was the sweetest and so patient throughout my appointment. I got the dress of my dreams within my budget and had so much fun while doing so! Truly felt the excitement from the staff when I said yes to my dress ❤ Will definitely be recommending them to any bride to be that I come across!

- Moriah M., East Peoria, IL

I had a wonderful experience here! I didn’t know what to expect, and was very nervous. My bridal stylist, as well as other staff I encountered, made me feel so comfortable! The dresses my stylist had picked out prior to arrival were all beautiful and exactly what I was looking for!

- Janessa F, East Peoria, IL

They were so easy to work with, and for alterations they said 36 hrs, and before we left they were done with them, I had a fantastic experience! Thank you so much!

- Craig B, Eureka, IL

The staff was so helpful with finding a unique dress that fit my shape and was the style I wanted. They were so nice and made you feel so comfortable! So honored to purchase such a beautiful, elegant, unique and stunning wedding dress from cloud nine! I would give a rating 20+ stars for this bridal shop with unique stylish dresses and their wonderful caring staff! They want to help make your day special and provide you with a stunning look for your wedding!! Still in shock I said YES to the dress but I know with cloud nine no one else will have the dress I purchased or anything like it ☺️💎👸🏽🥂😁 which makes me a very happy Bride to Be!

- Samantha Carroll, Peoria, IL
I had such a fabulous experience! The staff was very friendly, and helpful, and genuinely concerned with finding me the perfect dress. The bridal showroom is beautiful and full of class.

Had a lovely experience as a Bridesmaid! The bridal party and bride had so much fun! We were accommodated so well by all the staff… great space to try on and move around in dresses. Places to sit and set up made the experience very personalized. Great selection of dresses! I would HIGHLY recommend this establishment!

- Sara R., Peoria, IL
I had such an amazing experience!! I highly recommend checking them out! Their prices are so reasonable and the girls are absolutely amazing to work with! I couldn’t recommend them enough! I’m super picky and they were so welcoming to let me try different styles and find the perfect dress! If you’re into TikTok you HAVE to check them out there too!!
- Nicole N, Normal, IL

Man, I have no clue where to start! Cloud Nine is a must! From the moment they picked up the phone and book my appointment, to the moment we walked out of the doors, they were the sweetest people I have ever met! We first tried David’s Bridal and they told us they wouldn’t work us in, didn’t offer any other options, and told us we weren’t allowed to try on dresses without an appointment. Cloud nine was my next choice and it was like a God thing! It was next to the place we got my engagement ring, the prices were within my budget (seriously they are totally affordable dresses!), and they were all around just amazing ladies! They worked me in for a same day appointment and I said Yes to the Dress ❤️ You will not be disappointed!

- Andrea P, Eureka, IL

After looking at other bridal stores, I wished that I would have made the two hour drive sooner to Cloud Nine!! I absolutely love supporting small businesses and had the owner work directly with me! They had all different kinds of styles of dresses so I was able to try on everything from boho to glam to 100% sparkle! All of the gowns were priced great! Found my dream gown and accessories of course! Great experience left with such a great feeling!!

- Savanna L, Jacksonville, IL

The ladies here are amazing! We had so much fun finding not only all our dresses, but also our tuxes! Cloud Nine is top notch!!!

- Bonnie R, Princeville, IL

I’m SO SO SO pleased with my experience at Cloud Nine Bridal. They made me feel so welcomed and did amazing picking out dresses! I was so nervous that I wouldn’t find a dress that I would like, and the exact opposite happened. I found like TEN dresses that I loved and narrowing it down was the hardest part! I could have not picked a better place to go and HIGHLY recommend them to all future brides!❣️👰🏻‍♀️

- Madison M, Smithfield, IL

They are so friendly and great at their job. It’s was a magical experience- thank you for their help!

- Aliya W, Woodridge, IL

Wonderful experience! Our first visit was elegant, comfortable and Ashley and Shelby the consultants were outstanding. All of the dresses were beautiful and affordable. It was everything I imagined it should be. We look forward to working with them.

- Deb Bates Mehl, Danvers, IL

Absolutely love Cloud Nine! I had no ideas or expectations and was just looking for styles as it was my first bridal appointment. Shelby was kind, professional, and she found me the perfect dress!! Everything was so easy and smooth and stress free thank you Cloud Nine!

- Hannah L, Washington, IL
Shelby helped me find the most perfect dress imaginable. She knew I loved it before I even had a chance to realize it. I cannot wait for it to come in & to wear it on my big day!! I can not say enough good things about Shelby and Cloud 9.
- Paige F, Peoria, IL

Cloud Nine really impressed me with the seriousness and enjoyment they take with each future bride. While waiting for our appointment time, you saw the dedication they had with the bride before me and the need to make sure they have the best experience ever. Then when my appointment came it was the exact same scenario! They expressed just as much dedication to me and made me feel like I was the most important bride that day. I would definitely recommend this place to any future bride who wants to experience the best bridal wedding dress boutique!! Many thanks to the girls at Cloud Nine!

- Stephanie
The staff makes you feel at home the moment you walk in the door. They are all so friendly and kind. It’s so clean and nice inside! They have beautiful gowns, and you have access to look at so many unique gorgeous designs. They are affordable and work with your likes and budget. I would recommend anyone to visit Cloud 9 Bridal. You won’t regret it!
- Miranda L, Peoria, IL

Cloud 9 Bridal exceeded my expectations. They made me feel like a beautiful bride and put my wants and needs first! Rebecca was the bridal expert that helped me, and she was AMAZING to work with. She listened to what I want and the styles that I love. And she was on point with the dresses that I tried on. Everything from the communication before my arrival to the end of my appointment really was amazing. I found my wedding dress today and I am one happy bride. The owner was fantastic! I will ALWAYS highly recommend Cloud 9 Bridal!

- Rachel A., Sherman, Illinois

Very sweet and helpful

- Theresa J, Chenoa, IL

The store was beautiful! We had a cute area to all sit together with a huge mirror to look at the dresses in! Rebekah was amazing at helping me find the dress I loved and give suggestions. I felt so comfortable and relaxed during the process. This will definitely be the place I recommend to any family or friends looking for a dress! Thank you guys so much for the perfect bridal shopping experience!

- Emilee M, Washington, IL

Cloud Nine is an amazing place! Everyone there is so welcoming and nice. I never felt pressured to buy anything. On top of that, my consultant, Shelby, was amazing! She took my pictures that I sent in for inspiration and picked out the most gorgeous dresses. She listened to what I liked and didn’t like the whole time and found more dresses that matched what I was saying. My experience at Cloud Nine ended with me in tears with the perfect dress for my big day! I have went to other places and I was no where near tears. I am so so happy that I found my dress, which I call my cloud dress because it’s so soft and flowy, and I found my cloud dress at Cloud 9! All brides should go look at all their gorgeous dresses!! On top of that, they have great packages that includes everything a bride could ever want. I’m so happy I’m a Cloud Nine Bride!!

- Nataliya A., Chicago, IL

As soon as I walked into Cloud 9 I immediately felt welcomed and at ease! My wedding is in 3 weeks and I was able to find an amazing sample dress for 1/3 of the cost! I also received a very cute “care” package! Thank you Anna and The Cloud Nine Team!

- Adrienne M, Peoria, IL

I went in knowing little about dress shopping. The only thing I knew was the style. I now know much more and came home with a dress of my dreams. Recommend to anyone.

- Allison N, Eureka, IL

Cloud Nine was truly second to none. They treated me like a true bride and made the process effortless and stress free. I cannot recommend enough!! 👏🏻

- Sydnee W, Santa Barbara, CA

Cloud Nine is the BEST BRIDAL BOUTIQUE EVER! Everyone there was so sweet and really cared about what I wanted out of my wedding dress. They sent me a text message before the appointment asking for pictures of my dress inspiration, and when we showed up they had amazing dresses already picked out! I was able to go through the store and pick out some of my favorites as well. Shelby was an absolute dream! She really took the time to understand what I wanted and helped me find the perfect dress! I cannot say enough amazing things about the people at Cloud Nine. If you want to have a great experience finding your perfect dress, you need to make an appointment ASAP!

- BriAnna E, Chatham, IL

I went shopping here for bridesmaids dresses and ended up trying on several beautiful bridal gowns in addition. Their dresses are BEAUTIFUL. I didn’t find this many wonderful dresses when I went shopping in Chicago. The service was great too. We went in on during a blizzard and had a great time with the owner. She was really helpful and positive, but she didn’t pressure us like I’ve experience elsewhere.

- Emily P., Chicago, IL

Emilie was AMAZING. The whole staff cheered me on through out my entire experience. I couldn’t of asked for a better place to have said yes to the dress. Even during Covid they made it at special as they could. Thank you Jen the owner for hiring such amazing girls and being such an amazing shop !

- Jazmyne T, Peoria, IL

Went to Cloud Nine Boutique just to start looking for wedding dresses and to get an sense of what I’d like and I walked out saying Yes to my dream dress! Anna was amazing to work with! She was so helpful and sweet! She helped me get an idea of what I liked, style and look wise and made it amazing from start to finish! She helped me find the perfect dress! We will definitely be coming back for our Bridesmaid dresses! Highly recommended!💛💍
