The girls are absolutely AMAZING!!! My girl Stephanie was the consultant to help pick out my dress!! I was very open to trying on any dresses she thought that would fit in flatter my body! (Keep an open mind, these girls know what they are doing!!) After talking with her for a tiny bit… She pulled some dresses and let my girls and myself pick out dresses. When I walk in I see the most gorgeous dress! Stephanie actually picked the dress out!! It was the very first dress I tried on and I loved it and I said yes the dress!!!
I had an excellent experience at Clarice's. My consultant, Caitlin helped me try on a variety of dresses. She was very friendly, professional, and positive. She listened to my vision and budget and was not pushy at all. She is very knowledgeable when it came to the types of dresses, veils, belts, etc. I had a minor issue with the fit when the dress came in, but it was the designers fault and Caitlin got it taken care of right away. She truly went above and beyond to make sure I had the best experience and for that I am thankful! I am so excited I got to work with Caitlin and said yes to the dress at Clarice's.
Jaz was awesome to work with! I am indecisive, but she made the process easy and fun. Jaz listened to what I wanted and found my dress for me. I tried on so many dresses during my appointment, and Jaz took my feedback and was patient as I made my decision. I would highly recommend Clarice's to anyone looking for a wedding dress!
Clarice’s was my first and last wedding dress appointment! I’m from the St. Louis area originally but currently live out of state. I made quite a few wedding dress appointments when I was going to be in St. Louis for Christmas 2016. Connie worked with me at my appointment, and before we even went back to the dresses she asked me my price-point, what styles I liked, and what styles I didn’t. Because this was my very first dress appointment, I had no idea what would look good on me so I was very willing to try on a variety of styles. My Mom and I were able to pull a few dresses, and Connie pulled a few as well. After I would try on each dress we would talk about what I liked about it and also what I didn’t like about it. This helped Connie choose other dresses for me to try on. Never once did I feel rushed at the appointment, and Connie even gave me space to think through my final decision on my gown. Nothing that I tried on was over my price-point, and the dress that I ended up choosing a gorgeous strapless Maggie Sottero lace gown that was about half of that! I was so happy to find my dress at the first appointment! It only took about 2 weeks for my dress to arrive, but it took about a month for the veil and a little longer for the sash. I was able to make an appointment for when I was going to be in next (around Easter) to try on and pick up my gown. They don’t do alterations in house, but they do provide you with a list of places that they recommend. I have already received my pictures back from the photographer, and I still can’t get over how much I love my wedding gown. I highly recommend Clarice’s for a gown! They have been around for a long time, have a great selection of gowns at all price-points, and are great to work with!
Clarice's is the first shop I went to because they carry the only two designers I was interested in. I had such a wonderful experience with Yulia. She was calm and attentive even on a busy Saturday morning. She helped me quickly narrow down selections and guided me to the perfect dress without being pushy. She was honest and patient and did not rush me in the slightest. The whole atmosphere was great and I would recommend Clarice's to any bride.
I can’t say enough great things about Clarice’s! They have an amazing selection, and are so nice. When I freaked out that I picked the wrong dress they let me come back in and try it on, even on a busy Saturday when they were slammed!
I got my wedding dress and my bridesmaid dresses from Clarice's. They have an excellent reputation and it truly showed it in the process of buying my dresses. Meghan H. was my bridal consultant and definitely helped my out being in the situation that I was in. I, like many other brides, bought my dress online and change my mind. So I needed to find something cheap and off the rack. She helped my find my perfect dress!! I went back a couple of weeks later and found the most amazing bridesmaid dresses. My wedding was about a month ago and I could ask for more amazing photos. All of our dresses were perfect!!!!
Great selection and customer service!
Overall, Clarice's had a phenomenal selection of gowns at a really high multitude of prices that made it incredibly easy to find a dress, and I did end up purchasing from them. They sometimes even run sales, which is super unique for the industry. That being said, I'm docking from 5 based on two things: 1. It is a wedding dress machine. I went to other stores and the atmosphere was organized, special, quiet. That was NOT the case at Clarice's. Arriving midday on a Saturday, there were literally dresses all over the place, and they churned me through probably 20 dresses in like 45 minutes - it just really didn't feel special whatsoever. 2. They also said I could try on my sample to shop for bridesmaids dresses if I made an appointment, but then when I arrived, they hadn't recorded it properly and I had to wait over 30 minutes to be able to shop, and it wasn't even busy. I'd scheduled this appointment about 3 weeks out and while we did get to shop, it was, once again, not calm or organized or special. If you want selection at a great price, this is your place, but don't expect to be pampered or celebrated, and plan extra time.
Not the best place to find a wedding dress. Don't get me wrong I LOVED my wedding dress, but leading up to the day was hectic. I had a schedule appointment months before my wedding with Meghan. I DO NOT recommend her. She was terrible. I am a taller women (6 ft) and she said I would need no extra length on the dress after measuring me. We were very unsure of this when she said that, but that is her job to decide and guide us in the correct direction. Well, she completely wrong. When I got the dress back the dress it was VERY short on me. At that point it was too late to reorder a dress and we had already paid the full amount for it. I went to Nanu's alterations right next door and they were LIFESAVERS. Seriously the best. They ended up using material from the bottom of the dress I tried on at Clarice's, which the Manager at Clarice's nicely offered to us to use. It ended up working out just fine. Just a heads up when you go, DO NOT go with Meghan and make sure they are 100% sure on your sizing.
I loved working with Clarice's! I felt like the consultants truly cared that I found a perfect dress, and I really appreciated that they gave feedback when appropriate. I really trusted their advice and was so happy with the dress I left with. I even changed my mind about the veil once I picked it up and they were extremely accommodating.
I received a lot of compliments about my wedding dress and I couldn’t have been happier with it. It was absolutely perfect. We did order our bridesmaid dresses from clarices as well and they were beautiful as well. One of my bridesmaids did have issues with her dress though. The dress did tear apart in the chest area, so I don’t know if they sized her chest wrong or what the deal was with that.
Highly recommend Clarices to anyone getting married! Katie was my consultant and she was so patient and attentive and helped me find the perfect dress! My experience was so fun and flawless I went back and bought our bridesmaid dresses there as well. You won’t be disappointed!
Clarice's was an amazing place to get my dress! Everyone was so helpful and thoughtful from start to finish. After getting my dress here I decided to get bridesmaids dresses as well. I had 8 bridesmaids and each one had a unique body style and Clarice's did a great job fitting each bridesmaid.
I said yes to the dress at Clarices! Yulia, my consultant, was so incredibly helpful. She allowed me to look for dresses but was also helpful in picking out some dresses she thought would fit my vision. In fact, the dress I picked was one she grabbed off the rack when she was putting back some of the ones I had already tried. My dress was ready for pick up within a week of ordering; I was very surprised when I got that call! Clarices has an amazing selection of dresses and accessories. We also ordered the bridesmaid dresses thru here. There was one hiccup where the wrong bridesmaid dress color got written down for one girl but that was quickly corrected. One thing worth noting is Clarices doesn't do in house alterations so if that's an issue for you, Clarices might not be the place for you.
Clarice's was amazing. My consultant, Connie, met with me before my appointment to look at some dresses and kept it quiet like I asked when I came back. She listened to what I wanted, what was unappealing to me and made sure to help me try on dresses that would fit my body type and size. I felt she was really listening to me and she made my experience here wonderful. She even found my dress and let me know there would be a trunk show for that designer in 5 weeks. We booked my appointment to come back and get the dress at the discounted price!
I would recommend Clarices mainly because they have incredibly nice staff (Stephanie was the worlds greatest when I was buying my dress!!) and a HUGE selection of dresses. However, they are always so busy in the shop and appointments are often times late. We also went in to look for bridesmaid and mom dresses and was highly disappointed. Again, they had a large selection of bridesmaid dresses however, it was hard to even get someone to help us. Also, I was told my dress would be 2 weeks late and when I called to request an update on its shipment they had said it would still be another week at least. The next day they called me to say it had arrived. My biggest upset with my dress was with the alterations. We did a custom hem because my dress was all lace at the bottom. When my dress arrived, it still drug on the floor in the front. I was assured that when they steamed my dress and fluffed the tulle underneath, it would be perfect. It wasn't. Their only solution was to add more tulle with an uncomfortable skirt. The only other alterations I needed done was the bustle and they assured me they could do that. I arrived to try my dress on and at first they couldn't find it. Then when I put my dress on the bustle they had put in was in the wrong spot and broke within seconds. I was assured they would fix it that night and make it stronger but was also told to bring multiple safety pins because the over bustles often times don't stay well. Upon return the next day, the bustle they had put in made a terrible wrinkle in my dress and my dress was still dragging the ground on the sides. They offered to try to fix it again but instead I took it to the seamstress down the street and they made it absolutely perfect!
Only reason why I'm giving 2 stars is to give credit to Brittany for helping me out when I came here looking for a bridal dress. She was very kind and made me very comfortable. Overall though, this location has lied to me about my dress, convincing me it would be extremely easy to alter and fix, when in fact, it was the complete opposite. They convinced me to buy my wedding dress knowing how challenging and difficult it would be to do the alterations I wanted done. The amount of stress I had to deal with fixing this dress was a NIGHTMARE. I specifically said I would only get the dress if it could easily be altered and have custom made sleeves added, as well as fixing the hem. They told me it was nothing to worry about and they would provide me a list of seamstresses in the area capable of handling my dress. Fast forward 6 months when I get my dress, the list they gave me I'm having responses of "we are not professional enough to add sleeves" or aren't available and located in another state. Then to find out the dress I have is so complicated with being extremely challenging to add sleeves, as well as having hem work done due to the intricate lacing and beading on it, something the staff at Clarice's Bridal FAILED to mention, saying quite the opposite. This location lied to me just to get money in their pockets and make business. Clarice's Bridal decided to only take me serious once I wanted to return my dress because what's the point of getting your dream wedding dress if you aren't going to have it look the way you want it done? Once I called them and explained the list they gave me is not working out, they decided to recommend me to Nanu's Alterations next door which was the most TERRIBLE MISTAKE I MADE to listen, my dress was completely ruined from Nanu's Alterations. Any brides deciding to check Clarice's Bridal out I highly recommend you do your own research on the dress first before making a final decision. Check out the type of alterations that can be done to it before you listen to the lies from them trying to convince you to purchase a wedding dress.
My consultant was Katie and she was so patient in trying to get a feel for what I was looking for. When I came to the store I thought I knew what I wanted, but when I got there, that changed. I tried on about 5 dresses when Katie pulled a dress completely opposite of what I was looking for. Turns out that dress was THE dress. Before finalizing my decision I went to another dress shop that same day and couldn't stop thinking about that dress. With 30 minutes before closing I called the shop and told them I HAVE to come try it on again. They were so accommodating when I came back in with little time till closing and I bought my dream dress. I recommend Clarice's to anyone that wants a truly amazing dress shopping experience. The staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and caring.
My experience wasn't always great. Shopping was fairly low-pressure and the selection is decent. My first dress arrived in unacceptable condition, and the sash I ordered for my second dress also had sloppy beading. When I came to pick up the first dress, the associate who does Saturday pickups was not a bridal consultant, wasn't prepared to handle any issues, and tried to convince me that the huge (3+ inches) chunks of missing beading were "not that bad". To their credit, from that day on I worked with one of the managers and she did whatever she could to accommodate me and resolve any issues, including helping me the day before my wedding when the seamstress next door had botched my alterations and I needed emergency repairs. I think overall it's a good shop as long as you don't have the quality issues that I did, which really are the fault of the manufacturer. But I would strongly recommend NOT using their neighbor for alterations.
I could not have been happier with my dress buying experience at Clarice's. I have now recommended the boutique to three other women who also had amazing experiences and found their dream dresses there. Let me start by saying that I expected the dress buying process to be more high-pressure. I had a fairly limited budget and expected that a salesperson would probably try to talk me out of my price point and into "the dress of my dreams." To my pleasant surprise, my AMAZING saleswoman, Yulia immediately started off my appointment by asking me what style of dress I was looking for and what my price point was. When I showed her some dresses I had seen on Pinterest, she immediately (and very kindly) told me those would all be about $1,000 more than I wanted to spend. Rather than putting me in one of these dresses and letting me fall in love with it, she was mindful that I couldn't spend that much and didn't try to push my budget. After we talked for a while about the general vibe I was going for, she said "I know the dress you're going to choose." She didn't tell me which one, but she pulled about six dresses which were all stunning but I immediately fell in love with one of them. I loved it so much so that I actually didn't want to keep trying other dresses on! Of course, this was the dress that she had in mind. It was not the dress I thought I would walk out with, but it was the perfect dress for me and she knew it. It was even $100 LESS than my budget. I've since gone back to the store with many bridesmaids to look at dresses for them and worked with other saleswomen and I have yet to meet one who wasn't incredibly kind, personable and helpful. Out of all the people I've worked with to make my wedding day a reality, the ladies at Clarice's stand in the forefront of my mind. I can't recommend it enough!
I do not recommend this store to anyone - nor will any of my other professionals I hired for my wedding after sharing in my hellish ordeal. I had a good experience working with Yulia so I would like to recognize her for helping me find my wedding gown but after my consultation and finalizing the sale, I never heard from her again. When I went to pick up my wedding dress I had a new consultant who had only been there 2 weeks. As she was taking my dress out of the bag she said, "I really love this dress - I think we have it in champagne but the ivory is by far my favorite." I hesitated because I knew I had ordered the champagne but I thought maybe she was talking about something else. Nope. It was the wrong dress. In hindsight, I truly believe she was trying to sell me into thinking it was the right dress. When ordering my dress, I paid extra money to have it custom made because I was on a tight timeline (or so they made me think). The dress that arrived was custom made but it was the wrong color. They re-ordered the dress in the correct color but it was not going to arrive custom made. No one at Clarice's was assigned to be my point person once all this happened. I initiated every phone call to ask for updates about when the correct dress would arrive. Every time I called, I had to RE-explain who I was and why I was calling. And every person I talked to gave me a different story about where my dress was or when I should expect it. One of the managers (Caitlin) promised she would call me at a particular time to give me an update and failed to follow through on her word both times. They placed all the blame on the manufacturer and said it was their fault. The only thing they offered for compensation was to "pay for my alterations." They did not actually pay for my alterations. During my second appointment to pick up the "right" dress, they told me they were being fully reimbursed by the manufacturer for the first dress which I paid extra to have custom made. So if they received a full refund for the dress then they took MY money and used it to pay the seamstress. Once I had the correct dress, I needed alterations. The seamstress (Nanu Alterations) that Clarice's set me up did my initial fitting on the day I picked up my dress. She scheduled my final fitting appointment a week later and when I went to pick up my dress, nothing had been done to it. It had not even been taken out of the bag. The seamstress was so unprofessional - she would not even come out and speak to me face to face and take ownership of her mistake. She left her poor assistant to deal with the situation. I took my dress and went to an entirely new seamstress who made it perfect in the end. She and I were meant to meet, I suppose! I would not recommend this company to anyone. Picking out your wedding gown is something that most girls think about their whole lives and I feel I was robbed of a special experience due to this company and their poor customer service. - Trish Ruszkowski (Kreikemeier)
I LOVE Clarice's! I had a wonderful experience getting my bridesmaid dress for my sister's wedding here, and I started my dress search here for my own wedding. I fell in love with an off-the-rack dress and went back to get it after trying dresses on elsewhere. Clarice's has a beautiful dress for every bride and budget! My bridemaids got their Alfred Angelo dresses from Clarices's at 15% off. My mom got her mother-of-the-bride dress here too, and since the designer was out of her size (and not manufacturing during the Chinese New Year celebration), they altered her dress for no extra cost. The staff was super helpful and upbeat compared to several other bridal shops I went to. I've had a lot of friends and sisters-of-friends find their wedding dresses at Clarice's, definitely the place to visit when you're trying to find "the dress".
I can't say enough great things about Steph at Clarice's bridal!! She has a way of making you feel comfortable and was so, so helpful in picking out dresses similar to what I liked. Not to mention, I tried on nearly 20 dresses and she was super patient! Their new showroom is amazing and they have a ton of dresses - this was the only place I looked!!
I was apprehensive about going to Clarice's at first as I was sure I wouldn't find anything in a modest price range. I was proven wrong the moment I got there, and had an exceptional exprience with my consultant, Caitlin. She was the perfect balance of laid back and directive. She made suggestions for accessories, without feeling like she was trying to upsale. Her insight on my overall look was spot on. She quickly understood my style, and helped me find the perfect look for my wedding day. I made a point to visit Clarice's during the week as to avoid trying on my dress in front of several other people, and this made my experience very personal and relaxed. I also ordered my bridesmaids dresses through Clarice's and this process was easy.
