A fantastic experience
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 shopping experience had been as incredible as mine was! I would recommend anyone to go to Van Cleve to shop for their wedding gown, and to have Mayana as their consultant; she was truly remarkable, respectful, knowledgeable, and made the experience one to remember fondly.Sent on 02/19/2019

Shelly saved the day.
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.Sent on 05/23/2019

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 recommend this salon for any bride, bridesmaid or evening gown shopping! You won’t regret your decision!Sent on 01/10/2019

If I have a bride on the Main Line, I send her to Deborah and her knowledgable staff at Van Cleve. Not only do they offer the most beautiful selection of gowns, but they are constantly working as a team to stay educated on the latest trends, to scour the shows for innovate designs to bring to their clients and offer an unparalleled experience to everyone who steps through their doors.
