Best dress shop in town!Reviewed on 3/31/2014 Victoria U
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!
Makes Dress Shopping a Breeze!Reviewed on 3/26/2014 Martha P
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.
Amazing ServiceReviewed on 2/23/2014 Jennifer W
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.
Helpful and speedyReviewed on 8/18/2015 Rachel C
I loved my experience at Clarices. They were helpful in selecting dresses that fit within the idea of what I was looking for, but the consultant also was very helpful in providing real feedback and helping me to decide- she didn't just tell me that I looked amazing in everything. Best prices around, too!
Bridal Gown and Bridesmaid DressesReviewed on 8/14/2015 Angie W
Clarice's was great. I went there for my bridesmaid dresses first and found a perfect dress by Mori Lee that looked amazing on all my bridesmaids and was a very good price. About a month later I went to look at bridal gowns. The girl that helped me was great, she listened to what I was looking for and helped me find the perfect dress by Casablanca, and in my price range. I tried on about 10 dresses and the one I picked was the 3rd one I put on!! The room upstairs was kinda small but I am happy to hear they are expanding!! I would definitely recommend Clarice's to other brides!!
Wonderful South City Bridal BoutiqueReviewed on 8/11/2015 Katie B
Clarice's gave me what none of the larger bridal shops (i.e. David's Bridal, Ultimate Bride) could-- extremely personalized attention and reasonable prices. The ladies in the shop are all so sweet, and were with me every step of the way, from trying on the dress to pressing it the week of the wedding. Initially, I wasn't going to purchase my dress from a small boutique like Clarice's, because I assumed that dresses there would be more expensive. I was completely wrong! I actually tried on my dress at Ultimate Bride and at Clarice's, but purchased it at Clarice's because it was around $150 less. Great service, great prices. One note-- This wasn't an issue for me, but Clarice's does not offer in-house alterations. They do, however, have a list of preferred seamstresses that are close by. Like I said, this was not an issue at all for me. The excellent, personalized service at Clarice's far outweighed the extra effort of taking the dress elsewhere to be altered.
Love this store!Reviewed on 7/28/2015 Caitlin S
Everyone at Clarices was great! I love my dress and their prices are very reasonable. I also got my veil and a head piece from them and loved them all. I also got my bridesmaid dresses from them and they are beautiful!
Great bridal salonReviewed on 7/07/2015 Heather R
I got my wedding dress and all my bridesmaids dresses from Clarice's. They are great to work with and will match a competitors price. What more can you ask for? Only issue was that they do not do alterations, but Sandy's down the street is amazing!
Beautiful SelectionReviewed on 7/03/2015
This is our second wedding in twelve months. Both daughters looked at multiple dresses at multiple shops. I actually got my dress at Clarice's many many years ago. The staff listened to the bride and helped each bride find a dress that was in budget and what they were looking for. They did not rush or pressure either daughter. It was a very positive experience
Helpful staff at Clarice'sReviewed on 7/01/2015 Kaellyn M
I was so happy to say YES to the dress at Clarice's! I had a very specific idea of what I wanted, so I probably visited the store three separate times to try on dresses and veils. The staff was so friendly each time, and I finally found what I was looking for. They ordered my dress and it came in plenty of time. I loved working with Clarice's!
Great finds!Reviewed on 12/22/2014 Kerri S
We managed to pull our wedding off with less than 2 months of planning and I had to buy off the rack... Fortunately, I had an amazing assistant and we were able to find the perfect dress (for a fantastic price). Great selection of gowns for those that have a bit more time to plan as well.
Helpful StaffReviewed on 12/18/2014 Heather M
I absolutely loved my trip to Clarice's Bridal. This was my third salon, and I had tried on maybe 30 dresses when I came in. My consultant looked at pictures of two dresses I kind of liked, listened to what I didn't like about them, and immediately had ideas. I was able to go through the dresses myself to choose ones to try on, which I really liked. She never pushed a dress on me or tried to push up the price of the gowns I was trying on. She was very intuitive and was able to pick out what I did and didn't like in dresses. Every visit after that all staff was always friendly and helpful, even when they were busy. I would try to avoid Saturday appointments, as it is a small shop and gets crowded quickly and easily.
Great placeReviewed on 11/24/2014 Jennifer M
I live in the area and wanted to support a local business. They were very helpful. I even came back after having doubts and they let me stay late and try on a bunch of other dresses. It is a small store so it can get crowded. When I went to pick up my dress it was a mad house. But the value and service is great.
The best store I've been toReviewed on 11/23/2014 Ranee H
I visited and contacted several bridal shops during the hunt for my perfect dress and Clarice's was by far the most accommodating to my needs. They offered a wide variety of dresses with a large price range. Some shops only carried dresses over a certain price and those were not as affordable for me. The staff at Clarice's were also very attentive and understood my budget. I walked in with a list of what I wanted but after working with them, it turns out what I wanted totally did not look good on me. They helped me try on different styles and materials, always staying within my budget. I finally settled on the perfect dress at Clarice's.
Ask for Katie!Reviewed on 11/18/2014 Emily S
My consultant, Katie, was amazing. (There are 2 Katies...I'm not sure which one I had). I brought in pictures of the dresses I liked and she was willing to put me in those dresses, but right away I knew that I didn't like what I picked out. She made a suggestion, I tried it on and I found my dress. It was perfect and so easy. She made me feel good about myself, giving tons of compliments, etc. and I ended up purchasing a beautiful gown for my wedding day. Subsequent visits were not as enjoyable. When my dress and veil both arrived, I went in to pick them up and they were short staffed so I ended up having to wait 30 minutes past my appointment to get my dress. The next trip in, I dropped my dress off to have it pressed and found out it costs an additional $60-120. Picking the dress up after it was pressed was another issue because the lady at the cash register had to check 3 rooms before she found my dress. I also purchased my bridesmaid dresses here. Don't go on a Saturday as they are too busy to help you. Overall, this was a frustrating purchase.
Katy is greatReviewed on 11/18/2014 Trisha P
I was lucky to get Katy as my consultant! She was super knowledgeable and was willing to help me get the dress i dreamed of even though it was something that had to be special ordered. The reason behind the 4 star is that some of the other staff there seemed slightly rude and confused when i would call to ask questions. Overall the store has a great selection and some of the consultants are rock-stars.
I Said Yes to the Dress at Clarices!Reviewed on 11/15/2014 Angela B
I could not have been happier with my experience at Clarice's Bridal. Not only did I find my perfect dress in my budget, but I found dresses for every girl in my wedding party and their selection is just beautiful. I had Stephanie help me pick out my wedding dress and she was amazing! She really made the experience extra-special for me and I am so thankful for her and will always remember my wonderful experience here. I would definitely recommend.
Awesome experience!Reviewed on 11/05/2014 Jessie N
I loved my experience with Clarice's. Their dresses are absolutely stunning. The lady that helped me (her name was Yulia, I think) was so nice, helpful, and patient. She knew exactly what to pull for me, and I found my dress within an hour! I highly recommend this place!
Awesome!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Kelli H
I got a Maggie Sottero dress from Clarice's. They were friendly and so easy to work with! I also got my veil and slip from Clarice's. I would recommend them to any brides!
Great experience, grateful for their expertiseReviewed on 10/28/2014 Eva L
A co-worker of mine suggested Clarice's after a few failed attempts at other bridal salons. My mum and I went to go look for dresses in May. Call to make an appointment, because they do get quite busy! My wedding was going to be in September in Minneapolis MN and we were moving from St. Louis at the end of June. After the initial shock from the bridal attendant that we were on a time crunch, Yasmine got straight to work to get me in and out of dresses. She was attentive and direct in what looked good and what worked with my petite frame. She did not waste any time in trying to convince me if she felt that I was not loving the dress. She was also very professional in making sure I got my dress in time before we moved from St. Louis, as this was a critical piece because I still needed alterations. Overall, I had a great experience (definitely unlike those that you see on TLC's Yes to the Dress), my wallet definitely felt lighter when I walked out, but I valued their service, their feedback and professionalism. I would definitely recommend Clarice's to other bride-to-be's!
Wedding gownReviewed on 10/26/2014 Tiffany P
I ordered my wedding gown from Clarice's and loved my gown! The staff was very helpful, however I was a little disappointed that I was not offered the cap sleeve option on my dress at the time of ordering. By the time I realized I could have ordered them, it was too late. I had to buy extra lace from them and had the cap sleeves made for my dress. It ending up costing more to buy the lace and pay the seamstress to make the cap sleeves, than if I would have been if I was able to order them with my dress. Over all, it is a great clean store.
Beautiful Wedding DressReviewed on 10/25/2014 Jennifer R
My budget was $500 for my dress and I found exactly what I was looking for at Clarice's. They also treated my great as they knew we had a small budget for our wedding. Definitely recommend!
Beautiful Dresses/Pretty good staffReviewed on 10/14/2014 Chelsea Z
I purchased my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses from Clarice's Bridal. On my initial visit, I worked with Jazz, and she did a fantastic job helping me pick out dresses. It was a tough decision and she was very patient and also helped me stick with dresses that were in my budget, which I think is really important. I ended up purchasing a beautiful Maggie Sottero dress. They also have a nice selection of designer BM dresses, but they do take 3-4 months to come in. My only complaints are that they do not do in-house tailoring, but they will send you to Sandy's up the street (which is very reasonable). My other complaint is that when I went to pick up my wedding dress, no one waited on me for over half an hour. They told me to wait a few minutes and no one ever came back. Other than that, I enjoyed me experience and I will say that they have a stunning selection to chose from!
Great Dress For Great PriceReviewed on 9/03/2014 Laura B
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.
Perfect for meReviewed on 7/15/2014 Abbie W
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.
