  • I had an unbelievable experience at Van Cleve. The store is beautiful, the staff is welcoming, and the experience is wonderful. I recently had an appointment there, in search for a wedding dress with my best friend, mom and aunt. I truly cannot speak more highly of our experience with Nancy. During my first appointment I did not find the “one,” but I learned so much from Nancy about wedding dresses, the searching process, and wedding planning in general through her shared knowledge, compassion, and expertise. From fabrics and styles, to using those pins so well and getting creative about dresses… she knew it all. This was my first wedding dress shopping experience. From start to finish, and even in this strange COVID world, she made me feel comfortable, informed, and beautiful. I’ve always been fearful of pushy bridal stylists and she was quite seriously the opposite. In fact, I wanted to buy a dress simply to support what a great help she was. Weeks later, she followe...

  • My stylist, Shelly, was amazing!! I was looking for a very particular dress, and she successfully helped me find it! Her experience and wisdom made me confident in her advice and gave me the extra push I needed to say yes to the dress! An amazing experience from start to finish!

  • I had the best experience at Van Cleve Bridal! I had been to a few other bridal shops in the Philadelphia area and this one is by far the best. The boutique itself is elegant, welcoming, and very clean. I was working with Shelly who was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! She was unlike any other consultant I had before in the best way possible, and I felt like she had known me for years. After trying a few dresses that I had picked from the floor, she went and picked out THE ONE. I swear she has a sixth sense. In all honesty, I had given up on the "the perfect dress" feeling because I had left so many other bridal shops disappointed by both the experience and the dresses themselves. I seriously cannot recommend Van Cleve enough, and if you have a chance to work with Shelly please do! I can't wait to go back to do my fittings and find the perfect accessories! Thank you all so much!

    Jenna, thank you so much for your kind words! You have no idea how much it means to hear!! It was such a pleasure to help you find your dream gown. You look so absolutely stunning in your gown, all of us at Van Cleve were marveling over how perfect it was for you. I can't wait to help you find your accessories when you are ready!! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you as you plan your big day!! Shelly

  • I had an amazing experience at Van Cleve. Nancy was extremely helpful, supportive, encouraging, and fun to work with, and she helped me find my dress! I expected to only try on a few dresses at my 90 minute appointment, but I actually tried on 12 gowns! Nancy was very respectful of my budget as well, which was very much appreciated. I can't to go back and start alterations soon!

    Amber, Thank you so much for sharing about your experience! We can't wait to see you for alterations and on your wedding day! You're gonna be beautiful. XOXO, Nancy

  • Don’t waste your time at other bridal salons- call Van Cleve and make an appointment with Shelly. I knew after just a few minutes of speaking with Shelly on the phone prior to my appointment that she was the fairy godmother of wedding dresses that would help me find my dress. I had tried on at least 40 dresses and still was not sure how I really wanted to look on my wedding day. Shelly helped me narrow my vision and eventually find my dress in one appointment. THANK YOU, Shelly, for making the experience so much fun and helping me find my dream dress! You are truly the best!

    Kate, Thank you so much!!! It means the world to gain such wonderful feedback from you. I had so much fun helping you find the gown of your dreams!! I can't wait to see you in it after it comes in!! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you with during the rest of your planning. Sincerely, Shelly

  • Working with Nancy at Van Cleve was a wonderful experience! She was able to accommodate me and squeeze me in when my Mom was in town for wedding dress shopping. She was patient and answered all of our questions. She was also incredibly helpful in explaining the wedding dress shopping process and offering her professional opinion when it made sense. I wasn't quite ready to "say yes" on the day of my first appointment, so we scheduled a second appointment for two weeks later. She worked with our schedule to make sure we could come in. Again, Nancy answered ALL of our questions when it came to making my final decision (My Mom and I really left no stone unturned) and when it came time for me to say yes to the dress, I was 100 percent sure!! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!! I can't wait to wear my dress and come back for a fitting!!

  • I had the absolute BEST experience at Van Cleve. My stylist, Nancy, was incredible. She pulled dresses I sent as inspiration, but the ones she pulled on her own ended up being my favorite. Once Nancy learned my style, she pulled a dress that was absolutely perfect, and I said YES! Nancy really listened to me, what I liked and what I disliked. She also gave me some tips to ensure I feel my absolute best on my wedding day. I have been dreaming about my dress ever since I left the store and that is all thanks to Nancy!

    Alexandra, You're the best! Thanks for putting this all into words and sharing about your experience. I love going on the journey with brides like you! It all started with a picture, and now you have the one. XOXO, Nancy

  • I was dreading wedding dress shopping – I was so worried I wouldn’t find “the dress” and wouldn’t feel beautiful in the dresses. After going to 2 other stores where the experience was just fine, I didn’t have very expectations for going to our 3rd store, Van Cleve. I should’ve known it would be a completely different experience the moment our bridal consultant, Shelly, texted me the day before. She didn’t just ask for my Pinterest page – she wanted to know how I wanted to feel, what I was thinking, and even let me send her pictures of the dresses I liked on my body from the other stores. She met us at the door and right away, I knew I wasn’t dealing with someone who wanted to just pull dresses for me, she was truly a magician at her craft and wanted to do everything to make sure this experience was as magical as it could be with current restrictions still in place. She put me in a dress that I never would have pulled for myself but I put it on and it was absolute ma... Read more

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about Van Cleve. Our exceptional wedding coordinator Shelly made everyone feel comfortable, and put me at ease the first time she reached out to me prior to our meeting. We tried on all the dresses I had spoken to her about, in addition to ones that she knew would fit my vision. We only had to go to Van Cleve once before we got my dress, it was painless and perfect! Thank you Van Cleve for being the BEST experience I had dress shopping!!!

  • My consultant reached out a few days in advance for what I was looking for and pictures. Knowing what she was going to pull ahead of time made such a huge difference. And knowing I was trying to top a dresss I had already tried on was so helpful for my experience. I would recommend any bride to go there!

    Hi Jill!! It was so wonderful helping you find your gown!! I look forward to help[ing you with find your accessories and your mom and sister's find their gowns too!! Please reach out if you need me at all please let me know!! Shelly

  • Van Cleve was a lifesaver! I had to make a lot of changes to my wedding plans due to COVID-19, and I essentially planned an entirely new wedding in only 3 and a half months. I needed a new wedding dress, and I was very stressed out about how I would find a dress with enough time. I also had a strict budget for my dress because I had already spent so much on my original wedding plans before we made all of our changes for COVID-19. I reached out to seven different wedding dress stores in Pennsylvania and New Jersey to see if any stores had any sample gowns that I could purchase within time and have altered in time. Out of all of the stores that I contacted, Van Cleve was by far the most understanding and willing to work with me. I had a particular dress in mind, and they happened to have a sample of that dress in my size. Because of my situation, they were willing to sell me the sample for almost half off! I could not believe it. I was able to quickly schedule an appointment to try on th... Read more

  • My mom and I went wedding dress shopping for the first time last week. I must say that I was not expecting to find my dream dress! I went with a vague idea of what I wanted and was just hoping to narrow down a silhouette. Shelly is truly talented at what she does. Not only did I narrow down I silhouette, I picked my dream ball gown dress in about an hour. First Shelly let me shop in the bridal room to see what I liked. Any dress that I didn’t like, Shelly used my comments to pick the next one. She had me try on all different styles to make sure I was confident in what I liked. When I found a dress I loved, she helped me customize it by adding the perfect sleeves for a winter gown. She was so kind and attentive - I am still amazed that I picked out my dress so quickly and easily! Shelly even scheduled a new appointment so the rest of my family could come see the dress. My mom and I couldn’t be happier with our experience at Van Cleve and we are so grateful to Shelly for her thought... Read more

  • My maid of honor booked an appointment at Van Cleve, and I could not recommend them enough. The stylists were so helpful in picking out dresses, and very mindful/respectful of budget. I was very unfamiliar with the process of buying a wedding dress, and our stylist walked us through every step and gave us an idea of the timeline moving forward. Van Cleve also did a great job pointing out all of the costs associated with each dress (e.g., adding buttons, getting the dress tailored, adding other features) so I felt like we were able to make an informed decision and there were no hidden/unexpected costs. The stylist also emphasized commitment to making the bride happy over everything/everyone else. I would recommend Van Cleve to any bride regardless of their experience, style, and budget because they were so flexible, respectful of style preferences/budget, and generally fun to work with.
