Van Cleve was an absolutely amazing experience especially after having my bubble burst at the overrated Kleinfield's Salon. My Bridal Consultant, Mayana, was fabulous! She was attentive, she listened to my desires, she encouraged me to step outside of my box, and she even wiped my tears when I became emotional. It was almost as if we had known each other forever! I am so excited that I was able to find my dress in an intimate setting. I had 5 opinionated friends/ family members with me and she was able to make them feel comfortable by still attending to me. We even found my bridesmaids' gowns. If you have the opportunity to visit this lovely bridal salon I urge you to ask for Mayana.. you won't be disappointed! A.B.

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 Van Cleve - their selection, service, and professionalism is unmatched! I felt special from the minute I arrived, and I left feeling 100% that I had made the most perfect choice. Highly recommend!!

Our stylist, Mayana was AMAZING! She listened to what I was looking for, and used it as inspiration to pull a dress I would have NEVER picked for myself - and it ended up being dream dress!!!!!

I had the best experience trying on dresses at Van Cleve! My stylist, Ashley, asked me a few questions and instantly knew the dress I was looking for! I had tried on at least 20 dresses before my appointment and was starting to get discouraged that I wouldnt be able to find my dress. The first dress Ashley picked out for me was the dress I purchased and I couldn’t be happier! All of the staff and consultants were so knowledgeable and helpful. I encourage every bride to be to make an appointment at Van Cleve! It’s worth it!

Van Cleve was my first dress shopping experience, and I loved it!! I had no idea what I wanted when I walked in but was helped by Anna and said 'Yes to the Dress' within a couple of hours!! I highly recommend this store, even if you live in Philly and need to drive a little to get there.
