Main Line and suburban brides-to-be have an exciting opportunity to ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ this weekend as Paoli’s popular VanCleve Wedding Pavilion plays host to two major designers.
Deborah VanCleve, the Main Line’s award-winning wedding and women’s fashion arbiter and atelier, opens her doors of the renowned Wedding Pavilion to toast the nuptials of England’s Princess Catherine and Prince William hosting a pair of trunk shows.
Starting Friday, May 20th from 10.a.m. to 5 p.m., Van Cleve will be showcasing an extensive collection of designer Sara Gabriel’s accessories. Gabriel’s latest creations include distinctive fascinators, headpieces, combs, hats, and veils. For those Main Line brides looking to interpret the millinery showcased at The Royal Wedding, Gabriel offers a sophisticated variety of choices. In addition to this weekend, Sara Gabriel’s new accessories will be available at VanCleve for the next few weeks.
On both Friday and Saturday, New York City’s award-winning wedding gown designer Matthew Christopher Sobaski, of the Matthew Christopher line, will be on hand to meet and advise brides-to-be. Established in 2002, Christopher caters to upscale clientele—each piece is tailored to exact specifications with special attention paid to the intricate details that make each gown the centerpiece of a bride’s wedding day. From molded bodices and sculpted necklines reminiscent of old-world elegance, Matthew Christopher’s signature style of only using the finest silks, satins and tulles, coupled with delicate detailing, continue to set him apart in bridal couture fashion.
