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

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!Sent on 09/03/2019

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
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.
