About us

Maria Rubino — Founder and Master Bridal Stylist

Maria opened Luxe Bridal Rack in 2017. After years in the bridal industry cultivating her relationships with international designers and salons around the world, she decided to bring it home to Chicago. She settled into Logan Square, a neighborhood up-and-coming and young, which felt perfect for Luxe Bridal Rack. There’s really nothing cool about an intimidating shop — disinterested employees looking for the highest commission, selling you a dress well outside your budget; Maria unabashedly loves designer goods, and she wants every bride to be able to access that unparalleled quality and style. This should be the most exciting part of the wedding plans — not another headache. “It’s about the girl,” she’ll tell you. Every girl deserves that dream dress. Maria can take one look at her and know exactly what she needs, what will give her that magical moment. The real know-how comes from her many years of experience, persistence, and a genuine passion for bridal, but you just can’t put words to that brand of natural talent.

Hear it from a real #LBRbride. Take a look at these real #LBR love stories.

I am a very indecisive person and had been to several other bridal shoppes before coming here. The selection was small but intentional- wide range of styles...

I️ have not purchased a dress, however I️ can say their customer service is wonderful. My best friend had said yes to a dress at another bridal shop which almost sold the dress out from under her due to not having taken the dress off the floor. The manager of the shop refused to take the dress out of the other brides dressing room even though my friend was trying to pay for it. I️ called luxe bridal rack in a panic to find the same dress (which is no longer being made). The ladies at Luxe Bridal were empathetic and even offered to squeeze my friend in at the last minute. I️ can not express how much I️ appreciated their kindness and genuine care! Wonderful service!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Maria and the team at Luxe Bridal Rack. They have an amazing selection of beautiful gowns at great prices. This was the first my first shopping experience in the wedding dress hunt and they set the standards very high. I had a total of 4 appointments and ended up picking my dress from LBR. Maria and her team are experienced and make you feel very comfortable. One of my favorite things about Maria that stood out compared to other shops is her honest and warm personality. They are not just trying to sell you a gown, it is more of an emotional experience and they want you to LOVE what you are wearing. I am so happy I found my dress here!

While I didn't try on any dresses, (because non of them fit!) I'm giving this shop 5 stars. I'm a street size 12. Bridal dresses say 12 but they're really 8s. None of the dresses that were pulled fit past my curvy butt. After packing up and leaving almost disappointed the consultant grabbed the owner. She quickly pulled me to side and genuinely apologized and referred me to a different bridal shop that catered to my size. If is wasn't for this shop I would've never said yes to my dress. Thank you for going far beyond customer service and going out of your way to help me. You didn't have to send me to a different store. You easily could've said sorry bye. This shop cAres about the brides and the experience. I didn't get the "bridal experience " at Lux but had I not gone I would've never been referred else where. She had beautiful dresses Go, try on, and look beautiful! Maybe you'll be the one to say yes to your dress.
