Words cannot begin to describe how thankful I am to have found Ava Clara Couture Bridal! The selection of gowns is breath taking the women are so helpful and the over all experience was so incredibly wonderful - a memory I will never forget. In addition to finding my dream dress, Alex and Karen were able to help me choose the perfect bridesmaids, junior bridesmaid, and flower girl dresses!! They were so helpful and kind throughout the process they treated me, my dearest friends and family like royalty  making this time in my life even more special!! Ava Clara Couture is without a doubt one of the lead up and coming bridal vendors in the Hampton Roads area!! Many many thanks."

Ava Clara is a jewel. My girlfriends and I had been dress shopping for several hours by the time we arrived at Ava Clara. I had reached a point of not believing in 'the dress', and thought I should settle for one that looked pretty. Then, I walked through the door and knew I was somewhere special. Karen and Alex, are delightful and supportive of your thoughts and dreams. They want to make this time fun, exciting, and special. These talented ladies are insightful about finding 'the one', and directing the seamtress to make it a knockout fit. Your schedule is an understood priority. Alex and Karen worked hard to make my short timeframe not only work, but be stress-free. All of Ava Clara's gowns are stunning. Each has distinction and elegance. They care for the gowns and the environment with owner's pride. I hope every bride has the chance to feel as wonderful as I do about her boutique. You will walk away with a gown that makes your heart tingle as well as two wonderful friends.

You will find high quality dresses in this store. The best thing about Ava Clara is Alex and Karen. These girls are so kind and really want to help a bride have the best day possible. The girls know their products and go above and beyond when they don't have to. This store stands out from any bridal salon in eastern Virginia!
