  • I visited four salons and tried on 40 or so dresses before heading to Van Cleve with my mom during my lunch break. I was exhausted, overwhelmed, and ready to give up on my "perfect" dress to settle for something I knew wasn't exactly what I wanted. I described everything I was looking for to Shelly and four dresses later, I was in it. After so many dresses and so many feelings, I finally had "the feeling." Shelly, my mom, and me knew it right away. I am still in shock at how knowledgeable Shelly was about the dresses, the fabric, the fit, silhouette, literally everything. 10/10 recommendation to my fellow brides.

  • I met Nancy at the Philly Bridal show! She was very knowledgable from the beginning. I quickly set up an appointment with her to start trying on dresses. Prior to me going, I sent Nancy over some dress inspirations ( I had lots of ideas in mind!). When my mom and I arrived, we were greeted, and Nancy was all ready for us with some dresses in mind! Nancy took her time and was extremely knowledgeable about designers and styles. She was also mindful of our budget. Nancy showed us some dresses that she thought I may like...which I ended up saying "yes to the dress," too! It was a great experience overall and the space is beautiful! I would definitely recommend Van Cleve!

    Tara, It was such a pleasure to work with you and I can't wait for your dress to come in and continue this process. Thank you! XOXO, Nancy

  • I couldn't have asked for a better appointment for my first time trying on gowns. I was lucky enough to have Jada as my consultant and she was absolutely amazing. She even picked out the gown I ended up deciding on for the big day! I couldn't be more in love with everything. Everyone in the entire salon was welcoming and friendly and made the whole day absolutely wonderful. Not mention very accommodating to my schedule as well. They have a great selection of styles and pricing. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for their gown!

  • I had the most amazing experience with Deborah & Nancy. I was not exactly looking forward to dress shopping but they made it so fun for my Mom and I! Didn’t give their opinion, weren’t pushy, and totally flexible with my time and wanting to come back with my aunt and a couple of my bridesmaids. They know what they’re talking about and made me feel so comfortable throughout my whole experience. I can’t say enough great things about Van Cleve & their team! Thank you Nancy & Deborah! Xo

    THANK YOU MAIRIN! I loved working with you, your mom, friends, aunt, and sisters. You are so lucky to have an amazing crew of women to help and support you! You will be a stunning bride and we'll see you again soon. Best, Nancy

  • My mom and I popped in on a Friday morning to check out some dresses and were instantly greeted by one of Van Cleve's stylist Nancy, who couldn't have been any nicer. She stopped what she was doing to not only help us with a drop in appointment, but make us feel so welcomed and heard during our time together. She showed us 20 dresses and we loved almost all of them, Van Cleve's selection is incredible. Nancy was personable, friendly and very knowledgable. She quickly zoned in on what my vision was and took it upon herself to find dresses I hadn't picked that she thought I would love, which I did! Although we are still deciding on which one to get (I just got engaged a month ago!) Nancy and the Van Cleve staff made us feel so special. I highly recommend this Van Cleve as well as their stylist, Nancy!

    Thank you Lindsay! We are here for you and all brides along the shopping steps. If you would like to come back and revisit anything, I'm happy to be here to help! Thank you again for this sweet review. Best, Nancy

  • Van Cleve has provided top notch customer service from the very beginning! They helped me find my dream gown, helped my mom find her gown, and helped me pick all of my bridesmaid’s dresses! I dealt mainly with Megan and Ashley and they both go above and beyond to make you feel at home. They are very responsive whenever I have questions or need help, and also super fun at the actual appointments! I am going to miss it once my wedding is over. Highly recommend them and of course their product is absolutely stunning!

    We ADORE you, Ashlie! Thank you for taking the time to share such kind sentiments!! We are so excited to see your wedding come together. You, your mom and your girls are going to look SPECTACULAR!! xoxo Ashley, Megan and Team Van Cleve

  • We had such a nice experience at Van Cleve Bridal. Our bridal stylists was very knowledgeable and understood my vision but also gave me honest feedback. There was no pressure to purchase and they were very patient. I would definitely recommend checking them out if you are in dress shopping!

  • Everyone at the Van Cleve Bridal Salon is so sweet and professional! We were offered Champagne and a private suite upon arrival. My bridal stylist was Ashley who is also the Salon Manager. She was attentive to what I wanted and helped me pick details that I liked from each dress to really find “the one.” Going into the appointment I thought I wanted an a-line gown with sleeves, but I was open to anything Ashley thought might work. We ended up trying a gorgeous two piece WToo by Watters gown and it was perfect! Literally my dream dress! I chose to reveal to my best friend that I didn’t wanted her to be a bridesmaid, but I wanted her to be my maid of honor at the appointment! Ashley was so sweet and grabbed tissues for us all because we were crying in joy and she also returned with a gorgeous eggplant colored watters gown for my MOH to try on! Deborah, the owner, stopped in to greet us, congratulate us and chat. Overall a wonderfully perfect experience at Van Cleve. I highly recomm... Read more

  • I had the best day saying yes to my dress! I had two appts set up for myself. Van cleve was my second appt and I’m so glad I ended up saying yes to the dress there. The experience was beyond what I was ever expecting! My stylist Ashley was absolutely awesome! She went above and beyond helping me find the most perfect dress! I never felt rushed and I loved the privacy of there dressing rooms! I also ended up getting my bridesmaids dresses there and mother of the bride dress! I couldn’t recommend Van Cleve more! All the girls there are fabulous!!!

  • My experience trying on and choosing my gown at Van Cleve could not have been any better. I was incredibly nervous about trying on gowns, but from the moment I walked in, my consultant, Mayana, and the entire staff at Van Cleve made me feel at ease! Mayana listened to my vision for the day, was respectful and encouraging and pulled so many beautiful gowns. However, while the gowns were all gorgeous, none of them checked all the boxes. Mayana listened to my thoughts and likes and dislikes, and the helpful comments of my friends who were with me, and at the end of the appointment, she pulled a gown which incorporated all the elements I liked from the other gowns in one perfect dress - it was almost magical. It is clear Mayana is incredibly knowledgeable with the inventory, but also knew what would work for me and my vision for the wedding, and was mindful of my budget. I had four friends with me who are all married, and they all stated that they wished their wedding dress shoppin... Read more

  • I can’t say enough positive things about Van Cleve. Ashley went out of her way to order a sample for me on short notice. She was very attentive, even texting me on her day off to keep me updated. When Ashley ended up stuck in jury duty the day of my appointment, I was very nervous - BUT! Mayana could not have been more helpful and attentive. I ended up HATING the sample I ordered!! Mayana took the time to bring back several dresses to the luxurious private dressing area, and really listened to what I loved (and didn’t love) about each one. When she brought back “THE dress,” she knew it was over my initial budget, and was very respectful in asking if we even wanted to try it on, knowing it was more than we wanted to spend. I didn’t feel pressured or stressed about it, and when I tried it on we all knew it was THE ONE!! Mayana was spot on in her suggestion, and I left having purchased the most perfect dress I could have ever pictured. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment at... Read more

  • Van Cleve is AMAZING!!!! My mom found her dream dress in a matter of minutes because the stylist was able to put a vision together just by the things my Mom said she wanted in her dress. Jada was AMAZING! She went above and beyond to make sure we had fun while my mom tried on dresses! I can’t even say enough about this amazing place! The staff is so friendly and always kept us first!

  • I found my perfect gown at Van Cleve in Paoli. I had two appointments with Anna. One on 11/18 with just her and I, and another on 11/23 with my mother, sister and grandmother. I was initially nervous because of my price point, but, there was so many gowns to chose from. I actually went under what I thought I was going to spend. Anna was so amazing and great to work with. I commend her for tolerating my crazy family! An exceptional experience at this bridal pavilion, and I would encourage any upcoming bride to look! I chose Casablanca’s “Zola” in Ivory/Ivory/Ivory
