  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Shelly is THE BEST stylist! Several of my friends have worked with her for their weddings, and now I know why. She did a great job recommending flattering bridesmaid dresses for all 4 of us. We’re all thrilled and can’t wait to get and wear our dresses! She has a wonderful demeanor and made me feel comfortable and special right from the beginning.

  • Shelly is absolutely wonderful---the best stylist, I've ever experienced! She helped me choose the most beautiful and flattering wedding dress, but also wedding dresses for several of my friends and bridesmaid dresses for me, over the years. We've gone to her, wherever she is, for more than a decade. I highly recommend her!

  • I am getting married in September 2019 and Shelly has been a wonderful stylist! I have worked with her before as a bridesmaid in my friends' weddings, so now that it is my turn to tie the knot, I knew I had to go to her. She helped make the process of choosing a dress fun and she helped me narrow down my choices to a gown I absolutely love. She is excellent at helping you find a gown that you will love and that suits you even if you aren't 100% sure what you want. The whole experience of finding a gown was fun and pleasant. I highly recommend Shelly!

  • I had such a wonderful experience at Van Cleve. My consultant Ashley did a phenomenal job helping me find the perfect dress. She was sweet, kind, accommodating and picked out dresses that she thought I would like (which I did). The dress I said Yes to was the 4th of out of 6 dresses that I tried. Ashley was great helping me in and out of dresses, putting on the veil after each dress was on, zippering, buttoning and fluffing the dresses. My parents bought my dress and it was definitely within our budget. I would absolutely recommend Van Cleve and Ashley Grape to everyone!

  • I had the absolute best experience ever at Van Cleve! I initally inquired online and was pleasantly surprised to get a follow up phone call that very same day. They were extremly flexible with scheduling and also helped to order in a few dresses that I specifically wanted to try on. Anna assisted me during my appointment, helping me find dresses within my budget and my style. She was so helpful when trying them on and discussing pros/cons of each dress without giving me her personal opinion, and was so friendly with the friends and family who joined me! She truly helped me decide between my 2 favorites by suggesting my friend compare side by side pictures on her phone so I could see the differences right next to each other. The process was so fun and easy, the customer service, atmosphere and gown selection is by far the best!!! Highly recommend coming to Van Cleve to buy the wedding dress of your dreams!

  • 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
