  • 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...

  • 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!

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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Shelly at Van Cleve was so helpful and knowledgeable - I really appreciated her honest opinions. She helped me find a dress I love and that truly works for my body type, rather than just talk me into “any dress.” I loved my dress buying experience and can’t wait to wear it next year!

  • My experience purchasing my wedding dress from Van Cleve was fantastic from start to finish. I worked with Nancy to find my dream dress - one that was the exact opposite of what I told her I was looking for, but perfect for me in every way. Nancy was fun, professional, and felt like a friend every step of the way - work with her if you can! My wedding was originally scheduled for November, but we decided in July to move the date up to September to accommodate an outdoor celebration. Nancy and the Van Cleve team were so helpful in accommodating my new date and assured me my dress would arrive on time even though we were on a tight schedule. Valentina completed my alterations with a small window of turnaround time and my dress my absolutely perfect on my wedding day. I'm only sad that my wedding dress shopping experience is over!

    Megan, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this lovely review! You looked stunning on your wedding day! Finding the one surprising dress for each unique bride is the best part of my job. XOXO, Nancy

  • 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.

    Laura, Thank you so much for your kind words. I enjoyed working with you and your mother and I am so excited we found your dream dress!!! I am looking forward to finding you the perfect accessories once your gown arrives in store!! If you need anything or have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time.

  • Van Cleve is a beautiful store. Right away my mom and I loved the ambiance. Shelley was the icing on the cake. She was friendly, patient, funny and so down to earth. She knows her stuff. She found me the most perfect dress. I wanted a few changes to my dress within in days she sent me sketches from the designer with the changes I requested. I would highly recommend Van Cleve to any bride. Thanks Shelley, you’re the best.
