Unlike most brides, shopping for a wedding dress was not something I was looking forward to doing. Fortunately, I chose Claire's Fashions Inc as my first stop, and I'm very happy I did. My Bridal Consultant, Samantha, was wonderful! She helped to make it a painless process by quickly collecting all of the dresses that I asked to see, and she even pulled some of her favorites for me to try on. She was great at clipping larger dresses to fit my body, and she was extremely polite when giving her opinion. After trying on about fifteen dresses, I left the boutique with two favorites, and I was also able to find the perfect dress for my nine bridesmaids. A few weeks later, I ventured to another boutique where I tried to top the two gowns that I loved from Claire's, but it was impossible. I soon returned to Claire's on my own knowing that I had to choose between two beautiful gowns. Being that I am horrible at making big decisions, I slipped in and out of both dresses multiple times. Samantha was nothing but patient with me and helped to calm me down when the stress was overwhelming. After an hour and a half of confusion, I finally followed my intuition and purchased a gorgeous David Tutera gown. I am nothing but thrilled with my final decision, and I cannot wait to wear my dress down the aisle. I also look forward to returning to Claire's to work with Samantha and all of my bridesmaids!
Claire's Fashions has a great variety of bridal gowns and the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. The first dress I tried on ended up being the ONE! I could not have had a more positive wonderful experience:)
Small shop with personalized attention. Reasonable prices and nice selection.
Chloe` and her team were patient and professional. I absolutely love my dress!
The staff were all very helpful and knowledgeable. The seamstress was open and accommodating to my alteration ideas and did a fabulous job. I love my dress.
Claire's was a wonderful place to buy my dress. The staff was great, the selection was ample, and the prices were very reasonable. In addition to my dress I ended up buying shoes there. My bridesmaids bought their dresses, and my mom and mother-in-law all bought their dresses there too. Caitlin was the best!!!
They have a wide selection of dresses, a private area for brides to try on the gowns, and fantastic consultants working. My first consultant was Chloe, and she was amazing. (In fact, everyone at the shop was very helpful and kind.) Chloe was very patient, kind, informative, and honest. I came back for multiple appointments to pick out my wedding gown -- by myself, with friends, and with family. There was no pressure to purchase the gown at any point. Pictures were allowed to be taken, which is a huge plus. The shop owner was wonderful, too -- always friendly when taking my phone calls to check in, leaving me messages about updates, etc. My bridesmaid dresses were ordered here and everything looked beautiful. They really make shopping for a wedding gown fun and relaxing, as it should be.
Also, the staff that is available to alter the gown is a gem. Sophia is wonderful and easy to work with. She knows how to alter your dress to make it look like it never needed it.

I bought my wedding dress and my bridesmaids dresses from Claire's. The moment we walked into Claire's, I knew we were in the right place. We had shopped around at a few other stores already, but Claire's stood out. For one, our bridal consultant, Chloe, was THE BEST. She was kind, patient, and really knew what would work for me. She was incredibly helpful and all around fabulous. I really liked one dress and my family/friends liked another - Chloe found us the perfect dress that combined the best elements of both. It was a WOW! moment. After the sale, the alterations and follow up was seamless. My dress fit like a glove and all the special alterations I requested (replace the belt with a completely different one) was done flawlessly. I would refer anyone and everyone getting married to come to Claire's for their bridal fashion. They will work within your budget and make you feel comfortable and help you find the dress of your dreams!
I just ordered my wedding dress from Claire's and could not be more pleased with the service they provided me! My Bridal Consultant Samantha was fantastic! She helped make the process relaxing and exciting! This was my last stop and I am so pleased! I recommend Claire's to everyone, but make it your first and last stop! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
Great selection of dresses at a reasonable price. I got my dress and the bridesmaids dresses, and my mom got her dress here. We all loved them. The only downfall is that they do not have an on site seamstress. Otherwise, great!
There was a wide variety of dresses to choose from. Everyone that works there was extremely helpful and accommodating.
Claire's has a great selection of reasonably priced, beautiful gowns. Much of their selection is Allure Bridals, which is what I ultimately went with.
If you make an appointment, you will have a large bridal suite to yourself so your wedding party can sit comfortably while you try on. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We used Claire's for both my bridal gown and the bridesmaids' dresses.
I bought an allure gown here and had a great experience. We had a room all to ourselves and the woman helping us gave us all the time in the world. Nice selection if reasonably priced gowns.
We purchased our bridesmaid gowns at Clair's on Philadelphia Pike in Wilmington. I had called and scheduled an appointment to take my girls in to look for their gowns. It was a one stop shop. Kaitlyn was a super sales girl, as she took us upstairs and we had a private room. We marked the dresses we liked in the catalogs, and Kaitlyn went to work finding the dresses we were looking for. There was enough room for all the bridesmaids to try on different dress at the same time, and we eliminated the ones that we did not like. We had a fantastic time and did not feel rushed at all. We took pictures of the dresses on the girls, and then decided unanimously on a turquoise Mori Lee Bridesmaid strapless chiffon dress (style 642). We also purchased an ivory chiffon junior brides maid dress that we purchased for our flower girl.
I recently went to Claire's to try on wedding gowns. When telling my friends I had an appointment, the first thing they said was they are amazing there and ask for Chloe. I wasn't alb to put in a request because it was too late at that point. I was secretly hoping I would get Chloe. When I arrived sure enough it was the wonderful Chloe!! It made me even more excited to try on dresses. She was so amazing. For starters, she pulled the dress I had been dreaming about without even meeting or speaking to me. The entire appointment she was patient, fun, and honest. Chloe truly made my experience PERFECT! I said YES to the dress and couldn't be happier. I plan on going back to get my bridesmaid dresses there.
Claire's is wonderful, and so is Chloe!!!!!!
Staff very friendly and helpful!
I found Claire's Fashions online and was able to look at their selection of wedding dresses. I made an appointment and brought my sister and mom along. They told me to look online and print out any dresses that I liked and to bring them to the appointment. I printed out about 7-8 dresses. Once we got there, they had us look through a binder with more dresses. Once I was ready they look us upstairs and pulled the dresses. The last dress I printed out was the first dress I tried on and it was THE dress! I decided to try on the rest just to have the experience of trying on wedding dress, but I knew the first one was it. I decided to sleep on it and was going to go to another shop, but decided not to. I called them to setup another appointment and this time brought all of my bridesmaids. I tried the dress on again and it confirmed it! I then tried on a veil and the first veil the girl put on me was it. It was perfect! My bridesmaids and my mom got their dresses there and since I bought my dress from them, they gave them a percentage off of their dresses!
My experience at Claire's Fashions was definitely a good one! No complaints from this bride!

Chloe was my consultant and she was awesome!! She helped in every way possible. My dress that I decided to get was absolutely beautiful and all of my guest and husband loved it. Would def recommend them to friends and family.
My dress was georgous! a bit expensive but i loved it!
I have been to Claire's twice now and have had wonderful experiences both times. I went to try on wedding dresses initially and ended up getting my dress there. The sales associate was so helpful, suggesting styles and giving me and my party plent of time. We had our own private room which was also a plus. And did I mention their prices are great!! They made it such a wonderful experience that I didn't even want to go anywhere else and I bought my dress that day!
My second experience at Claire's came after going to two other local bridal stores to look for bridesmaid dresses. We had horrible customer service at both places and I came home and immediatly called Claire's. They were able to fit me in the next morning and I ended up finding 2 dresses that I loved. And the dresses were much nicer and less expensive than the other two stores I had previouly went to. Again the sales associate was very helpful, making suggestions and was not pushy at all. I highly recommend Claire's to any bride that wants a special bridal shopping experience!
