The Bridal Experience

Welcome to Adagio Bridal Boutique! We are a bridal boutique based in Peoria, IL., and love everything bridal! We believe that every bride deserves to be the center of attention during her bridal appointment, so we offer private appointments usually hosted by the owner herself! Amy has worked very hard to make sure that her bridal line, Kapelle, has something for brides of all shapes and budgets! Adagio Bridal Boutique also has the ability to customize, or completely design from scratch, a bride’s dream dress! The possibilities are endless! Call and schedule your appointment today!

About Us

‘Adagio’, when translated from Italian, means “with ease”. Finding the perfect wedding gown should be an easy and affordable experience for every bride. No hassles, no worries, just fun! Adagio Bridal Boutique is an appointment-based bridal boutique that specializes in bridal gowns and promotes local Peoria alterations specialists.

Amy, owner and designer, has always had a passion for art, music, and wedding gowns. She decided to combine all of her passions and opened a bridal shop in 2016! She has collected and created Kapelle, a new exclusive bridal line in Peoria, IL. From modern to traditional, brides can find the perfect gown or have the option to customize it without breaking their budget. Gowns are available in sizes 4-26 in-store. Adagio Bridal Boutique’s main focus is the bride and offers bridal gowns, bridal undergarments, sashes, headpieces, and veils for sale.

Because Amy usually meets with every bride herself, appointments are required to try on gowns. This way every bride receives the attention she deserves during her appointment. There are dates the shop will be closed during hours of operation, so appointments must be scheduled in advance. The boutique will be closed for major holidays and certain personal days which will be noted on the website in advance.

Promotions and Events

We are open and taking appointments! Please note there are a few changes to our appointments because of COVID:

1) The nature of our business involves an enclosed space, so we encourage guests to wear masks. Masks are not required at this time, but we will always do what we think is safest for our guests and will require masks should COVID numbers be on the rise.

2) Appointments are limited to one bride and four guests according to our square footage and COVID guidelines. Appointments are all private and guests will not be allowed to leave and re-enter the boutique once the appointment starts. If the guest must leave, no new guest will be allowed to take his/her place.

3) All brides must have a wedding date and venue booked before scheduling an appointment. This will help us continue to schedule effectively and meet deadlines for dress creations in lieu of any further shutdowns.

With these new guidelines, we are absolutely happy to be able to serve you safely! We can’t wait to meet you and find your dream dress!


Frequently Asked Questions

1) Are you able to just walk in to the bridal shop or do we need an appointment?
Amy, the owner and designer, handles all of the appointments herself, so we only can handle one bride at a time. Because of COVID, we are operating specifically by-appointment only. We ask all appointments be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance. Walk-ins are not available.

2) Do you have dresses I can try on or do you create only customized gowns?
Both! You can purchase a gown right off the rack from designers like Maggie Sottero, Essence of Australia, Sophia Tolli, Mon Cheri, and more! We also offer our Kapelle Signature exclusive line of our designs that you can customize. You can completely design your own gown if you want!

3) How long does it take to get a dress in and what is your pricing?
Dresses arrive 2-4 months from order date depending customizations and shipping schedules.

Pricing for Kapelle Signature dresses: $699.99-$1200.00. Customizations: $50-$150.

Pricing for designer off-rack gowns: $599.99-$1899.99.

4) Can I bring in a picture of a dress and have it made?
We protect the integrity of other designers and DO NOT copy dresses from photographs. We have different fabrics and dress patterns. If you bring in a picture of a dress, we will discuss the details you like about it and incorporate those details into a dress from our line. We customize, we don’t copy.

5) What can I expect from my appointment?
All appointments are private and held with the owner/designer herself! This is what makes us different than other boutiques! The boutique is a more intimate setting, so we recommend no more than four guests because of COVID. Appointments are an hour and a half to two hours in length. You are free to walk through all of the gowns and pick what you would like to try on! It’s truly the special one-on-one experience every bride deserves.

6) What should I bring to my appointment?
Bring ideas and pictures of wedding dresses that you have found! Also, wearing undergarments is a requirement for sanitation purposes. We recommend a strapless bra to really get an idea of necklines and open backs. We do offer long line bras that you can try on and purchase if desired. As for your shoes, wear the highest possible heel that you would wear for your wedding. If you will be wearing flats, obviously wear flat shoes. We can custom the lengths of our ordered dresses based on the shoes you will wear. If you wear flats for your appointment and then choose to wear heels for your wedding, your dress will be too short, so always wear the highest possible heel to the appointment. You can shorten a wedding gown hem, you can’t really lengthen it.

7) Do you have an alterations department?
Because we are a smaller boutique, we do not offer alterations in-house. We have recommendations for alterations experts in the local community, many of which have their own studios. We like to promote locally!!! Each seamstress sets her own pricing and has reasonable pricing within the bridal community.

8) Do you offer bridesmaid dresses?
We do not offer bridesmaid dresses at this time. We hope to someday in the future!!!

9) What are your standards with consigning a dress?
Because of COVID, we are not offering consignment at this time.
