I went to Claire's for the experience of trying on wedding gowns and to feel like a bride. I honestly didn't expect to find "the one" that same day. Elaine was our coordinator, and I can't say enough about how amazing she was. Elaine was ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! She has the best personality ever. She is so funny and personable. She made me feel that I deserve everything I ever want and need on my wedding day and in life (don't ever doubt yourselves, girls...Elaine won't let you!). She also knew exactly what I never knew I wanted in a wedding dress...she picked out "the one" and it was meant for had me written all over it! Elaine even cried with me and my guests when the ugly tears came! I had such a positive, fun experience at Claire's...I can't rave enough!

Delores was the best consultant I could have asked for! She listened to what I was looking for and made our experience amazing! She had such knowledge of the dresses and was able to pull dresses we didn’t pick but still loved! She was patient and kind and we couldn’t ask for anyone better!

I worked with Nicole, and she was absolutely wonderful! She listened to what I did and didn't like, was able to recommend dresses, and helped finish the look with accessories. She also introduced us to the "glam lights" which made each unique dress shine! I would highly recommend Claire's and Nicole.

Nicole was incredibly helpful! I loved shopping here and I am so excited to say that I said yes to the dress here! The process was seamless and made it so easy to shop and browse through all of the dresses available.

Claire’s, I had a very positive experience. I came there with my bridal party in search of a wedding dress. Upon my arrival I met Maren (beautiful name). She was absolutely delightful, kind & patient. She helped us make an informed decision and I left there knowing that I had found “the dress”.

I found my dream dress while at Claire’s and all thanks to Elaine. She understood exactly what I was asking for and pulled the most beautiful dresses I have ever had on, it was actually hard to choose they were all so stunning, I would without a doubt refer all the brides I know to Claire’s. The prices were so reasonable and the staff was incredibly friendly! I cannot wait until I get to wear my dress on my big day!

I had such a wonderful experience shopping for my wedding dress at Claire’s! Elaine was absolutely amazing. She was patient, kind, and understanding. I went in having no idea what I wanted in a wedding dress, and came out having bought a dress that makes me feel like the most beautiful person.

Debbie and all the girls at Claire’s were so extremely helpful. My group and I were so back and forth about accessories, and they were running and grabbing whatever we needed to help us out. They even helped my mom afterwards for her mother of the bride dress!

I HIGHLY recommend Dolores for any bride. She felt my body language and facial expressions the entire time. She always had the right answer & totally let me run the show with what dresses to try on. Dolores was AMAZING.

Wonderful experience! The entire appointment we were able to try on various styles while slowly beginning to define exactly the dress I was looking for. The graciousness and patience of the staff is heartwarming! It was such a positive experience I would literally suggest this place to any bride still in search of their yes dress!

Making an appointment: It was SO easy to make an appointment to try on wedding dresses and there were so many available times for me to choose from. It made scheduling a piece of cake- especially with bringing 3 other guests! I also loved the fact that Claire's sent me a confirmation text. It was so easy and made me feel like Claire's was ready for me to come. Dolores: I can't say enough good things about Dolores. She greeted me with a huge smile on her face and told me she had been waiting for me and was so excited to meet me. She knew my wedding date right off hand and knew all about my dress preferences. She made my guests feel so comfortable and welcomed as well. Dolores was personable with me and made me feel like we had known each other for years. When she took me in the dressing room, she made me feel calm, beautiful, and worthy of all of her time. I could also tell she was reading MY face and MY emotions and knew exactly when I didn't like something and when I loved something. She made me feel like the most important person in the world and that I deserved whatever I wanted for that day. She was kind, passionate, detailed, and efficient and I truly loved spending the afternoon with her.

I had the privilege to work with Samantha and had such a great experience. She picked up on my style quickly and ended up finding the dress herself that I eventually said yes to. This was a dress I did not even pick out of the book on my own but I LOVED when she brought it to me. She was perfect to work with and never pressured me. I am so glad I get to work with Claire’s for my wedding.

Dolores was absolutely amazing. She was able to figure out my style and what I was looking for right away. She was so helpful and so personable. She made bridal gown shopping so much more special and exciting. There was a great selection of bridal gowns. I would highly recommend people to come here.

When I scheduled my appointment at Claire’s, I was running low on fuel. I had been to 5 dress appointments at other stores previously and I had walked away empty handed and disappointed. Claire’s was a breath of fresh air. I liked that I could choose dresses to try on from photos in a binder rather than fight through racks. Even though the appointment was booked for an hour and a half, I tried on 6 dresses and said yes to my dress in under an hour. It was an absolutely wonderful experience and I’m thrilled to be getting my dress from this lovely shop.

Even though I didn't end up buying a dress during my appointment, Shana was very kind and helpful! We were able to start early, she already had my favorites pulled ready to go, and she was very knowledgeable about the inventory when it turned out I wasn't liking the ones I had originally picked online. Overall, my mom and I had a very positive shopping experience!

I was lucky enough to have Jackie as my consultant and I could not have been any happier to have worked with her! From the minute we met, Jackie made me feel like the most important bride and made sure to listen to all my preferences. With every dress i tried on she would ask what I liked/disliked about it and pull new dresses based off my input. It came down to the last dress I tried on but as soon as I put it on I cried, knowing this was my dream dress. I could of never found this dress without the great help from Jackie and all the other amazing staff at Claire’s. I definitely recommend any bride to visit Claire’s for finding that perfect dress for their big day!!

The woman who helped us through our appointment was very nice! I appreciated that she was not pushy, willingness to grab more dresses, and did not interject or pressure to purchase.

Picking out my wedding dress was an amazing experience at Claire’s! My dress consultant Marnita was absolutely AMAZING and made my experience so enjoyable. She worked so well with me and my group and kept us laughing the whole time. She made me feel so comfortable at a nervous time while tried on the beautiful dresses and was beyond helpful with all my questions. I ended our afternoon with purchasing my BEAUTIFUL wedding gown. Couldn’t be more happy with how my day and experience went at Claire’s!!

I was completely satisfied with my experience from the time I called to make my appointment through to purchasing my dress. When I called to make my appointment I was calling to also find out if they carried a particular dress and if so I wanted to make an appointment for a specific day because I already had another appointment at another store that I was going to cancel and didn’t want to have it a different day due to family coming in from out of town to attend. The person who answered the phone was more than happy to look for the dress and schedule my appointment. I also loved how they set you up with an online portal where you can pre select dresses for that day so that they can pull them for you. This was incredibly helpful in making for a smooth appointment. My stylist that day was so friendly and knowledgeable and patient. I found the dress of my dreams here and I am just so happy with how everything went. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

I had a wonderful experience. Even with my budget and time constraints, I was able to find a beautiful dress that I LOVE. Marnita was a huge help and a pleasure to work with!!

I had a wonderful experience at Claire’s. Nicole was the best! I was very happy with having a bunch of dresses that I had picked out online all ready for me to try on. Nicole was very helpful and made me feel super comfortable. The selection is unbeatable! I would suggest Claire’s to anyone looking for bridal dresses.

Tina was amazing! She was very knowledgeable with all the bridesmaid dresses, easily picked out the styles we preselected and suggested really great options for us to also try on. The appointment went so smoothly!

Best experience I could have ever asked for! We had Elaine and she made me feel so comfortable the entire time. I am very self conscious and Elaine helped me with every step of the appointment and was so knowledgeable about every gown and style.

Jackie was wonderful and made me feel very comfortable never felt pressured and they have a great variety of dresses that is for sure.

My first visit was with Dolores and she was wonderful. She let me try on, and retry on, over and over because I am super indecisive. I had picked a dress and of course, changed my mind the next day after sleeping on it. I came back a few days later and had another appointment with Christina, who was also very kind and understanding of my dilemma. All of the employees just want you to find the perfect dress and not settle for something. And that is very refreshing. They work with you and help you pick out different dresses based on your body type. The selection of dresses is HUGE. You look through pictures in binders instead of actual dresses, this was super helpful because sometimes when you look at dresses on the hanger, you really can’t tell what it’ll look like on a person. Claire’s gave me the best experience while wedding dress shopping (I went to 3 other shops first). And best of all, no tax in Delaware! Thank you, to everyone at Claire’s for being so kind while dealing with my indecisiveness and making sure I had a beautiful gown for my wedding day!

I had a bad experience at the shop near Malvern, PA that made me nervous for my appointment but my experience at Claire’s was so amazing, night and day from the last shop. The consultant was professional, knowledgable, and understood what I was looking for. She had a pleasant and kind attitude that made me feel comfortable and eased a lot of my nerves about dress shopping especially when I have hang ups about my body. I am looking forward to my bridal party having the same experience when they have their appointment in May

Had a LOVELY time at Clarie's on Sunday April 7. Everything was set up and ready to go when I arrived with dresses from my profile - and I said yes to the dress at the end of the appointment :)

My consultant Marnita was fabulous. She was fun, honest and always kept my best interests in mind.

Had such a wonderful experience! Thank you for making what can be a stressful time so enjoyable and memorable. I appreciated that at no point was the “sale” pushed, and our consultant was sweet, knowledgable, and incredibly helpful. Loved the private bridal suite, and the woman who took care of us was an absolute pleasure to work with. Also, as a plus size bride, I loved that you had dresses in my size by the designers I wanted to see. That’s a huge benefit that no other standard size bridal salon I went to was able to pull off. Thank you thank you thank you! Can’t wait to wear my beautiful dress on my big day!

I have been to Claire's numerous times over the past 12+ years for prom gowns, bridesmaids dresses, my own wedding gown and for bridesmaids gowns for my girls. I ALWAYS am made to feel like I am the priority during an appointment. Staff is friendly, patient and helpful without being pushy. My absolute favorite place for all things gown related!

Five stars feels inadequate. I struggle to find the words to explain how wonderful it was working with Jackie. She made me feel so comfortable + beautiful and helped us find the perfect dress in no time. By the end of our appointment she felt like part of our family. I would come back a million times over and recommend Claires to anyone and everyone.
on 03/26/2019
I had an amazing experience at Claire’s! It was my first time trying on bridal gowns. The consultants were wonderful, the bridal suite was beautiful and clean, and all the gowns I tried on were actual dresses I tabbed in the book. I will definitely be returning for a second visit and would recommend this bridal salon to anyone!

This is our second purchase at Claire’s with two separate salespeople and both have been wonderful. Today the young girl was super sweet and helpful! She never rushed us and gave great input.
