I had always heard great things about Clarice’s, so I knew right off the bat I would go there. They definitely exceeded my already high expectations. Wonderful customer service and positive attitudes from the ladies who work there, even they are slammed (definitely would recommend going on a weekday if you can swing it). I had a good idea of the style of dress I wanted, but kept pulling dresses that just weren't doing it for me. The sales woman helping me (so sorry, can’t remember her name) pulled a dress on her own and asked me to try it. Not only was the dress PERFECT, but it was HALF the price of many of the other ones I had tried on. Even after I bought my dress, they were so great helping me with bridesmaid dresses, jewelry, and steaming/storing my dress until my wedding day. Can’t say enough wonderful things about this place!
I was really nervous about shopping for a dress since I had never pictured myself in a wedding gown. Clarice's was my first stop due to some recommendations to work with Katie, and it ended up being my only stop! Katie knew how to help me make decisions and had me try on dresses I never thought I would wear. My gown was beautiful and the perfect dress for me! The bridesmaids dress experience was a little more crazy and all the last minute details felt a bit rushed. But the shopping experience was so amazing the rest of the details seemed minor in comparison.
Clarice's Bridal was an amazing experience. The staff was wonderful and willing to help even though I did not have an appointment. They had a wide selection of dresses and were able to find me two beautiful dresses within my price range. The bridal consultant went above and beyond and was able to get my wedding dress in within 2 weeks- which was amazing since I had a short time between finding my dress and the ceremony. Everything went so smoothly and the staff communicated wonderfully.
I flipped through a lot of magazines, online, watched 'Say Yes to the Dress' and even went to some bridal fairs and never found a dress that grabbed me. That was until I walked by the Clarice's booth at a bridal show. I was stopped in the aisle, looking up at one of their two dresses on display in their booth. I took a photo and couldn't stop looking at it. I wanted that dress ASAP. (even tried to buy it off the mannequin!)
I went to Clarice's, tried on the dress, found out it was a STEAL, even as a brand new style. I was shocked and loved it.
I did go to another shop to try on dresses, for good measure. Nothing compared in style and price to my "love at first sight" dress. I went back that day and bought it.
We made alterations to the dress, turning the corset back into a zip and button overlay. It was a more fathomable cost since the dress was such a good price.
Only thing about Clarice's I was not happy about was that their location is very cramped so going in there was a little overwhelming on a busy day(which is often). The initial alteration on my dress was not very good and needed to be fixed by someone else, which was a little frustrating but it worked out.
Overall, very happy with my dress and my cousin even went there and purchased her wedding dress.
I was able to find a one of a kind dress in my price range. I didn't think this would happen here, and was pleasantly surprised. The girls were great too. We didn't purchase bridesmaids dresses here, as they were pretty pricey.
I tried on over 300 wedding dresses and traveled to 5 different states in order to find the perfect dress. I am telling you to go to Clarice's, you won't be disappointed.
I visited Clarice's a total of three times during my dress shopping. I had all the time in the world, so I made sure to see probably every dress in existence. My first shopping trip was to Clarice's and I had no clue what I wanted - my consultant (Katie) was quick to offer a lot of suggestions and really helped me narrow down my choices. After visiting a few other stores and finally deciding on a dress shape, I was eager to purchase from Clarice's as a thank you for the service I recieved. I messaged their facebook page with some ideas, and when I came in for a follow-up appointment they had several dresses pulled that looked amazing. Ultimately I went with one, and they price matched another local store. The only reason they get four stars on Service is because they charge to steam/press your dress and you have to buy a garment bag for your dress - if you don't purchase one, they just wrap your bag up in a drycleaning plastic bag, which isn't that good for storage.
I could not have asked for a better dress experience. The whole staff is not only friendly but honest (in the best possible way). Not only did they help me find my DREAM dress, they helped my mother (who normally hates wearing dresses) find a mother of the bride dress in which she looked and felt beautiful and my bridesmaids find dresses that worked with their body types. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
I got great service from all the ladies at Clarice's. Well worth the little extra I paid for my dress.
I found my dress at Clarice's bridal after scouring the internet, trying a warehouse-type store, and coming up short. I got the recommendation from a friend and am glad I did!
I started the visit with letting them know my budget and they remained very conscious of it as they picked out dresses to try on. It was a no-pressure environment which was SO much better than my previous experience.
We found 'the' dress and the process was simple! Something that is definitely appreciated by a frazzled bride! :)
I bought a lace Allure wedding gown here. Great service, gown was perfect!
They had beautiful gowns, but I was rushed through my appt after 3 dresses. Most of their dresses were out of my budget range so I bought( which I LOVED, but they made me feel bad for not having a bigger budget) one off the rack. The surrounding staff upon return with my bride's maid were very rude.
Clarice's provided excellent service for me and my bridesmaids. All dresses came in ahead of schedule.
I went to Clarice's twice and worked with the same woman both times. I wish I could remember her name: tall blonde with an accent. She was very nice and pulled a ton of dresses for me.
I ended up finding my dress at Robins Bridal but bought from Clarice's because it was $200 cheaper.
Wish they had alterations in house. I heard horror stories on the place they typically recommend so I took mine to Abbey Lane.
Make an appointment and only bring a few people with you as space is limited.
Best dress-shopping experience I had in my search. Employees are cheerful and encouraging and they have tons of dresses in all price ranges and sizes to try on and choose from. You can customize your choices. I’m slightly larger than the norm and was disappointed in other shops with the limited number of things to try on. This place was the best and made me feel beautiful for my special day.
I did not end up finding my dress at Clarice's, but I did go several times to try on wedding dresses. They have a big selection and you get a personal shopper to help you pick out dresses and get them on. My main issue was that my personal shopper wouldn't let me try on fit and flare styles because she thought I wouldn't look good in them. She helped me pick out a few beautiful dresses, but in the end she wouldn't help me get what I wanted, so I had to go elsewhere.
I found a Maggie Sottero dress which was able to be bought off the rack. Clarice's cleaned it for me. I was able to get a Maggie dress for half price and in great condition. Great service.
The experience of shopping in Clarice's lovely shop was priceless! Their wedding dress room is like a fairy tale, just beautiful. The only thing I would have changed about the experience is that when I picked up my dress is was a wrinkled mess and I immediately broke into tears. A quick stem job would have eliminated that issue.
Katie at Clarice's was AMAZING!!! 👍👍She helped me find a dress that could be altered into exactly what I was looking for! She found me my 1 of a kind dress!!! 😃 I did shop around before going to Clarice's & once I went there, nothing else compared! We even had an issue with my MOH's dress being sown wrong & the ladies at Clarice's got it taken care of immediately! I would recommend Clarie's Bridal to ANYONE looking for either a wedding dress or bridesmaids dresses! ❤❤❤ THEM!!!
They have the best prices in St. Louis for the best designers and trends! Some of the staff is helpful and understanding but some never want to take the blame for a mess up. I had an amazing bridal gown experience there but my bridesmaid dress process was a nightmare! One thing wrong after another. It ended up being OK in the end but we cut it close and it added stress to the bride.
