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

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!Sent on 12/02/2019
Van Cleve's reply: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
Every year more and more of our brides are choosing Van Cleve Pavilion as their wedding gown salon of choice, and we know why. Start with a beautifully appointed store, and a wide selection of designers. Add to that a staff who is knowledgeable and nice! Van Cleve is a home run!
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.
Van Cleve offers wonderful dresses for the discerning bride. They carry an excellent variety and their service is top notch.
