Great bridal gown shopping experience

Reviewed on 1/01/2014 Jenn O

I had a great experience shopping for (and purchasing) my wedding gown at Catan Fashions. I went for two different shopping appointments, and both times the consultant was very helpful and professional. In fact, a consultant picked the dress I ended up choosing, based on photos I had brought and my feedback on other dresses! They have an amazing selection of gowns and other accessories. I also purchased my veil there, with a fantastic 50% off deal. The alterations department did a lovely job, and my gown fit like a glove the day of the wedding. I went with the standard alterations package and was very satisfied.

No where better in northeast Ohio to find a dress

This amazing experience made my wedding a dream come true. Everyone was so helpful from the beginning to the end. The consultants and owner helped me with finding the perfect dress and really listened to my price point and what I was looking for. They accessorized me to my budget. Valentina altered my dress with little time until my wedding and did a perfect job. She made a dress that I bought off the rack fit perfectly and look flawless. Everyone there made my wedding dress shopping experience perfect. Couldnt of asked for a better shop and selection.

The first time I walked into Catan's, I knew immediately that I would be purchasing a dress! The staff was EXCELLENT and extremely helpful. They took their time helping me find the perfect gown. The owner is always in the store and is the sweetest lady in the world. She checks on the bride constantly to make sure they are satisfied. The ladies in all of the departments go above and beyond!!! I would recommend Catans to ANYONE!

I used Catan Fashion for all my wedding dress needs (dress, veil, hair accessory, and alterations) as well as obtaining my bridesmaids dresses. They have an amazing selection and were extremely helpful when it came to picking out my dress. The associate I worked with really knew her dresses and by telling her what I liked and didn't like, we were able to find the perfect dress! The ladies in bridesmaids were also amazingly helpful. They pointed my girls and I in the right direction and were very helpful when it came time to ordering the dresses and getting them in on time. Alternations department was also very accommodating and great on giving tips of what to do and not to do while wearing my dress.

I received so many compliments on my wedding gown from Catan Fashions. The dress sparkled and fit me perfectly. It was everything I dreamed of in a wedding dress!

LOVED my sample dress!

Catan's was the 5th bridal shop I'd gone to, I couldn't find a dress (I'll admit I was VERY picky). I tried on upwards of 50 dresses which was awful. I went to Catan's with a $1000 budget (not including alterations) and after looking around didn't think I'd find my dress here either, prices were higher than I thought. But I tried on a few to give myself better idea of want I wanted and what kind of budget I'd need to get it. I still couldn't find a dress... then toward the end of the appointment the consultant found it in the sample room! She brought it in and I knew it was my dress! And it was far under budget! I was really nervous that the size 12 dress could not be altered to fit my size 2 frame but the assured me that it could be done so I bought it. Alterations were nerve racking for me but not because of them but because I was still concerned about the size issue. But Yela didn't bat an eye and started pinning away and my first appointment. By the time she was done with all the sewing and hemming the dress was perfect! Fit like a second skin on the day of my wedding. I was worried about being able to move in it due to is weight and it being a ball gown and strapless but I danced the night away with no fear! I love my dress so much and I'm so glad I found it!

This was a great shopping experience. They have a great selection of gowns with varying prices.

I went to Catan's ready to buy a dress. The consultant I worked with had been at the company for about a week and had little to no knowledge of the product. We were hurried out of the store at 5:20 when store hours were listed as open until 6:00pm. The price of the dress I found was marked up about $500 compared to other boutiques I looked at and the alterations were a flat fee of $500 regardless of how much altering the dress actually required. Overall, I had a very poor experience and will be buying my dress elsewhere.

A Facinating Stop

Reviewed on 8/04/2014 Ashley E

I stopped here with my Mom and Dad while searching for my wedding dress. They carry so many wedding dresses! My budget was $1,200, and we had a hard time finding dresses within that budget that were large enough for me to try on (size 14). Under those parameters, I found fewer dresses here than any other store I visited. It is, however, a great place to get ideas on jewelry, bridesmaids, flower girls, shoes, and even reception set-up and centerpieces! While I did not find my dress here, I would still recommend going to Catan's if you have the chance.

I loved my dress and the experience of finding it!

Catan's provided me with an amazing experience finding my wedding dress. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to feel peoples' styles and pull dresses accordingly. The event of finding a dress was very personal with my entourage and I getting a secluded room so we could all focus on finding the dress. They do not pressure you at all to purchase, because I actually did not purchase on my initial appointment. Once I did buy my dress it was super easy to have my inspection then set up a series of alteration appointments. I rave about how well my dress fit thanks to Olga and their alterations team. She was incredibly meticulous to make sure that I had the perfect fit for my day. I absolutely recommend their services to anyone looking for special occasion attire!!

Great experience at Catan's

I had a great experience with my wedding dress from start to finish at Catan's. I HIGHLY recommend Olga for alterations. She is awesome at what she does and a pleasure to work with. All of my bridesmaid's dresses also came from Catan's and that was extremely easy too.

Beautiful Dress, Less than Beautiful Service

Reviewed on 6/23/2014 Sarah B

I purchased my dress from Catan and the dress itself was gorgeous! It was exactly what I was looking for and the girl who helped me find it was great!! When the order was placed, I was measured and told that I was between sizes and I should order the larger size. Despite my better judgment, I followed their advice. Unfortunately, I lost some weight (not a lot, but enough to make the dress about 2 sizes too big). I was disappointed that their "professional advice" now caused me to have to pay for alterations. I took my dress elsewhere and had a seamstress take the dress in, but I called Catan and asked if there was anything I could do to help me. They told me that I chose which size to order and I "could have ordered it 3 sizes too small if I really wanted to, it was my decision and they don't tell the customers what to do". I wish they could have handled my frustration a bit least an "I'm sorry for your trouble." I will not be going back to this shop unless I absolutely have to! I'd rather drive across town than deal with their terrible customer service.

THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO GO, unless you want to feel like you just had a 45 minute workout of jazzercise.

This was our second stop of the day (5/7/14, mid-afternoon) with my daughter to shop for her wedding dress. As a mother, you dream of this day from the moment your daughter is born (actually before). Choosing a wedding dress can be exhausting and finding the right place to find the dress can be equally exhausting. Ms. K (first initial) was not attentive, did not ask questions, and just didn't seem to be interested at all. My daughter tried on 8-10 dresses in under 45 minutes. Ms. K did not help her put the dresses on or help take them off, so my daughter was exhausted after the appointment from lifting all the dresses. Once my daughter had the dresses on they would be crumpled up underneath, and I would have to fix them. When my daughter said she didn't like the dress, Ms. K just gave her another one to put on. Basically, all Ms. K did was stand there and say little to nothing. When I would ask a question, her response to me was a bit short tempered. This was a horrible experience, and we will not return. The dresses were nice and in the right price range; however, I will gladly pay a few hundred more to another bridal salon with good service.

Awesome experience

I had such an amazing experience at Catans. They have a huge selection of dresses. My consultant Kaitlin was so nice and took the pieces of different dresses I liked and found the one dress that had everything I was looking for. it was perfect. After I purchased my dress I worked with Olga in alterations and she was amazing. She added a little extra beading to the dress which made it pop even more. She made sure my dress fit perfectly on my wedding day. I had to fly with my dress and after an entire day through different airports, I took the dress out of the garment bag and there was not one wrinkle to be found! I felt amazing when I put it on for my wedding day and everyone just loved it. Thanks again to Catans. My wedding day would not have been nearly as perfect without your help to find my perfect dress!

Beautiful dresses lousy workers. After finally picking out my dress It was time to get measured (ugh most dreaded part); Nautrally I was told "you are between sizes". I should have gone with my gut instinct to go with the bigger size but the lady who took th measurements said she was sure tht the smaller one would be fine, it wasn't. I Had to bust my butt to loose weight. (yes it fit). Well when it was the bridesmaids turn the 3 who went to the store had to have major alteration for the dress to fit because they didn't measure the girls right. (keep in mind I didn't have my dress yet so I didn't know it wasn't going to fit). The 3 girls who called in their sizes fit perfect. What I am saying is don't go there unless you know your own measurements. I even called to get things fixed and they were of no help.

Rude Seamstress

Reviewed on 10/10/2013 Jessica C

My whole buying experience was amazing, the bridal consultant picked dresses perfectly according to my taste and I only had to try on 5 to find the perfect dress. However when I got to my first appointment the seamstress was very rude to me. I had to purchase my dress 2 sizes too small because it was the last one and I was assured when I bought it there was enough room to alter it. The first seamstress I saw ( I can't remember her name) made me feel very fat, ugly and just overall uncomfortable. She even told me that I shouldn't let my future mother in law see me in the dress until "it was let out" so that I would not embarass myself. I called and complained and was set up with the most kind and sweet seamstress Olga for my next appointment. Olga made me feel like a princess and perfectly altered my dress. I would recommend seeing Olga especially if you are a little large in the chest like me!

I found my dress at Catan's and it was a size 12 stock dress with elements I was not totally in love with, but Catan's made it more custom for me. They added a sash, took off flowers, made a bird cage veil from that and altered me down to a 4. I could not be happier with the experience and I still am in love with my classic lace dress mixed with a modern tulle trumpet bottom. Thanks Catan's!

The store is gigantic, almost overwhelming at first but the sales rep we had was awesome. I didn't realize you needed to specifically make an appointment for the "couture room" in the front, but she was accommodating since my mother came from out of town to be there and I ended up with a jaw-dropper lazaro dress. Olga, the alterations lady, rocks.
