Meet Ivy

Owner of Lovely Philadelphia

I'm Ivy Solomon, the owner of Lovely Bride Philly.  After many years in the retail industry, I knew I wanted to work in a more intimate environment and really get to know my customers.  Bridal truly seemed like the perfect fit.  After meeting with our Lovely founder, Lanie List, I opened one of the first franchises of the collective in August 2013 in Philly.  Getting to be a part of so many people's wedding dress experience is something I truly love.  My team and I look forward to having you in our shop and celebrating with you when you find your gown!

Had such an awesome experience! Mahdiya was so thoughtful and did a great job helping curate my ideal look. The third dress she pulled for me was the one! So grateful for the whole experience and very happy to be a Lovely Bride!

Full disclaimer that I did not get my dress here, but wanted to share what a positive experience I had with Miranda over email. I learned my dream dress was being discontinued and was heartbroken. I feverishly began emailing stores to see if I could buy their samples and Miranda was a lifesaver. Not only did she offer to send me photos of their sample, but she did her own research for me and sent me other resale websites that had the dress and even made other designer and dress recommendations! Exceptional customer service! She was caring, supportive, and really made me feel special in a time where I was pretty emotional. If you shop here, ask for Miranda to help you out because she made me feel like the only bride in the world. Thank you for the support and kindness when I needed it most ❤️

I had an amazing experience at lovely bride. River was wonderful and made us feel so comfortable and listened to. It was my first store we went to and truthfully should have been our last. I went to two other stores. Neither made me feel as comfortable or had as many plus size options in styles I liked.

Had the best experience here out of the bridal shops we went to. This place was recommended to me by multiple coworkers. The ambiance was great and they have a diverse array of gown designers to choose from. The requirement to choose a few dresses you like on their website Lookbook after you make your appointment was actually very helpful to make efficient use of your time so your stylist has a good starting point to pick dresses you are likely to want to try on. My stylist Miranda was lovely and the other staff all seem very invested in what they do. Their social media is also fun to follow and shows diverse women with different body types in their dresses. Miranda made my maid of honor feel comfortable and included in the process and was great at using the feedback of what I liked/didn’t like after trying each dress to find other dresses for me to try on. Miranda had a very thorough understanding of their inventory and made the entire process very enjoyable. The pickup process for the dress was easy too and it arrived in the time frame they said it would. Excited to wear my dress and highly recommend Lovely Bride and Miranda!

Everything about my experience at Lovely Bride was amazing! It was fun and easy. Erin was my stylist, and she was fantastic. She was attentive, and didn’t pressure me into anything. I ended up saying yes to a dress, and couldn’t have done it without her!

I had an amazing experience at Lovely Bride! It was my first time trying on wedding dresses and was nervous but River made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. She really listened to what I wanted in a dress and helped me try on all different styles to figure out which one I felt most comfortable in.

I had the best possible experience at Lovely Bride Philly! It was my first dress shopping experience and every part of it surpassed my expectations. The shop itself is beautiful, and I love that each bride gets their own private room for their party. Mahdiya was my stylist and it was clear that she did her homework on my preferences and was so helpful (LB does send an extensive questionnaire beforehand and gives you access to every dress in their inventory with transparent pricing). She pulled dresses that I absolutely loved and asked all the right clarifying questions to help me narrow down my options. Picking just one dress was the hardest part, there are SO MANY stunning and unique designs here. I wound up picking the very first dress I tried on and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the entire experience.

Such a great and no pressure environment. I expected to feel a little overwhelmed but couldn’t be further from the case! Found my dress here with the help of Miranda and she was fantastic and so easy to work with. Everyone was so kind and friendly. They had my styles ready as soon as I came in and were so well prepared. Couldn’t recommend coming in here more!

I had a beyond positive experience at Lovely Bride. I was in town visiting my sister and we went to the appointment together. Miranda helped us and was INCREDIBLE at her job and an awesome person all around. She pulled the dresses I had bookmarked, but her suggestions were the ones I loved the most! She has a great eye for individual styles and picking out things you will adore. There were two other appointments going on on that same time and everyone in the store seemed very happy and excited. Great energy. Go here, future brides!

My experience at Lovely Bride was simply wonderful! Starting off with the ease of the booking process and exploring the gorgeous dresses available in their bridal portal. It was so much fun picking out my favorite dresses. I could not wait for my appointment. The Lovely Bride studio was so adorable. I have to give a big shout out to my stylist, Miranda. Thank You so much for everything from our initial communication to your warm support in helping me find my perfect wedding dress. It was a very emotional moment when I Said Yes to the Dress. I will truly remember my experience at Lovely Bride forever.

My experience at Lovely Bride was nothing short of magical! From making my initial appointment to saying yes to the dress, Lovely Bride made a rather daunting process so simple and exciting. The studio atmosphere is beyond adorable, but it was the attention to detail and support of the staff that truly made my time so incredible. From our first interaction my stylist, Erin, was so warm and so accommodating, and I knew immediately I was in great hands. Erin worked with me on so many different elements, it is because of her I found the dress of my dreams. Needless to say, I could not be more grateful for my experience here and would recommend this shop time and time again.

I was nervous and a little self-concious about the bridal gown shopping experience, but decided to try Lovely Bride based on their selection of gowns. Not only did I find an amazing selection, but I also had the best shopping experience! River was the BEST to work with! She exhibited such a high level of class and professionalism and turned my nerves into excitement and confidence without any pressure. They are so good at cheering you on every step of the way at Lovely Bride

Yay!! Miranda was amazing 🙂 Lovely Bride was the 3rd bridal boutique I had visited, and it was such a wonderful experience. After trying on around 10-15 dresses prior, I was starting to worry I wouldn’t like how a wedding dress looked on me. Not only did I find the perfect dress, but Miranda picked out multiple options that matched my style to try on. She kept me focused, and knew exactly what I was looking for. It was one of the easier decisions in wedding planning. They were very transparent throughout the entire process (from expected delivery time, to ordering the right dress size, etc.). I picked my dress up today and fell in love all over again. Thank you so much!!

Tried on dresses today and had SUCH a fun experience. Jessica, the store manager, helped me with my dresses and she was fabulous!!! She was so informative and had a great energy and helped me narrow down my options to 2 choices. I think I’m really close to saying yes to the dress thanks to the help I got at Lovely Bride!

I have been to Lovely Bride in Philly 3 times, twice to find the one, and once to buy the ONE, and each experience was just as great as the last! Everyone I worked with (shout out to Miranda!) was so kind, patient, very knowledgeable and made me feel beautiful with each dress I tried on. I would HIGHLY recommend a bride to go to this boutique if they are in their beginning stages of looking for a dress. The shop is decorated so stunningly and is very clean and bright. I can’t wait to go back to pick up my dress in June!

I made an appointment at Lovely Bride along with a few other bridal boutiques. This was by far the best experience I had dress shopping. They listened to what I wanted and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful! I ended up buying my dress from Lovely Bride and was so happy with every step of the process!

I had a great experience shopping here. I ultimately found a dress at another studio, but I did want to leave a review about my experience. Lovely puts in a lot of up-front work when you make an appointment, including letting you favorite gowns available at the store and a style questionnaire.At the appointment, you try on gowns in a private room with your stylist. My stylist, Mahdiya, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Throughout the appointment she pulled gowns based on my preferences. I do recommend Lovely if you are dress shopping in Philly.

I purchased my wedding dress here and loved my experience! I enjoyed being able to browse their selection online ahead of my appointment and pick out which dresses I wanted to try on so my stylist understood my style before I even arrived. I also appreciated how transparent they were with their prices rather than hiding them like so many shops. All of their dresses are unique and beautiful. My Made With Love dress came in exactly when they said it would, and their recommendation for alterations in Philly worked out great. Highly recommend Lovely Bride as your first stop because all other shops will pale in comparison!

The best experience!! I worked with Miranda. She was awesome. The dresses she pulled were on point with my style and she was super receptive to what I did and did not like. I found a dress I loved and they even let me back in without an appointment to try it on a second time a few hours later. Ivy helped me this time. She’s awesome too. I wound up buying the dress and I couldn’t be happier. Staff is amazing and dress selection is amazing. They really know how to make a girl feel good about herself. Thanks guys!!

This review is a bit unorthodox, as I hadn’t gone to Lovely Bride to purchase a wedding dress but to work together on a celebration that was taking place inside. The space design, attention to detail and warmth of this location is second to none. You very quickly understand the care and expertise Ivy puts into each element of the process. I have already recommended three of my friends to see her.

My vision: simple, classy, elegant, timeless. My dress is a dream. Everything I could ever wanted and exactly what I was looking for. I found the dress by researching a bunch of designers. Made with Love is an Australian based company who works with a some vendors in the United States. The Lovely Bride in Philadelphia, had the dress and once I put it on, I knew it was it the perfect one. Thank you to Taylor, Jessica, and Ivy at the Lovely Bride for working with me to make my wedding dress dreams come true. Additionally, Taylor helped me find the most perfect earrings to match the vibe. They are stunning.

I worked with a stylist at the beginning who made the experience much less stressful. At my second fitting when my dress arrived I was able to work with two more lovely ladies. I had a wonderful experience. And obviously they all helped me pick the best one for me!

I had such an incredible experience at Lovely! This was the very first bridal salon I visited and I loved every second of it. River was SO wonderful to work with. I really didn’t know what I was looking for when I walked in but she asked all the right questions and was extremely patient throughout the entire experience. I LOVED her energy and how she made the appointment super fun and stress-free from the second we met. I thought I’d have to stop by multiple boutiques to find the right dress but by the time my appointment ended at Lovely, I said yes to one of their dresses! So, so thankful for the experience both River and Lovely gave me – couldn’t recommend it more!

Jessica was a phenomenal stylist! I had previously worked at a bridal salon for two years and had tried on so many dresses. When it came time to try on dresses for my own wedding I wasn’t sure if I would have the same excitement as most brides having already tried on dresses. Jessica made the entire experience so wonderful and easy and made me feel like a bride! She had all my favorite dresses pulled for me ahead of time and also suggested some beautiful dresses. She listened to what I was looking for and pulled dresses that fit my style. There were also a few dresses I had requested to try on that were over my budget. She was mindful of my budget and made sure I was aware of the price before trying it on. When I picked my dress she was super helpful in explaining the different color options and was such as excited for me as my friends and family. Thank you Jessica for all your help! I can’t wait for my dress to come in!

I had an incredible experience at Lovely Bride, and it cannot be matched! After going to another bridal shop where I felt like I wasn’t the priority, but rather an inconvenience, I walked into Lovely nervous. Immediately, the staff welcomed me with open arms. Between the online portal, looking at me and getting to know me, and asking what I liked/disliked about every dress I tried on, they helped me find my match! Thank you to the most loving, kind, and helpful bridal staff around. I will continue to recommend Lovely Bride up and down.

Lovely Bride was such a wonderful experience! From start to finish everyone was so helpful and attentive through the process of looking for a dress. I ended up getting a dress at a different location but I needed to take a moment to say how incredible Hannah was. I had two appointments with her and each time she put in 110%. I am an awkward person and she was able to adapt to me and my personality to make me feel comfortable. Hannah is not only an amazing and kind person but she is fantastic at her job! I would ask for her if you go!

I can count on my hand the times in the past two years that I’ve worn a dress, but I decided I did want to wear one for my wedding. On my wedding day, I wanted to feel like a sorcerer from the future, an old-timey Hollywood starlet, or a powerful witch. My stylist Julie understood the assignment perfectly. She had a number of my selections available, and also suggested gowns that were within my vision. The result was a gown that I was absolutely in love with! Thank you, Julie, for being a part of my perfect wedding day

This was the first place I tried on dresses to get an idea of what looks good and what style I really wanted. Thanks to Julie I walked away with a dress I absolutely love!! I didn’t expect to love anything for the first try on but she knew exactly what would look great on me. I would highly recommend shopping here and ask for Julie as your stylist!

I had a wonderful experience finding my dress at Lovely! Julie was extremely helpful and easy going throughout the process. I didn’t ever feel rushed or pressured into anything. We were able to go through my selections and try on different veils and accessories to help me decide. I personally enjoyed the selection of dresses here because there are a variety of options which included more simple and classic looks which I was going for. Overall a great time and so happy to have my dress!

BEST experience & shop, I want to do it again! Hannah was my coordinator for my appointment and she could not have been any better! She had my 3 top picks lined up and I tried on maybe about 10 dresses total. I ended up selecting my 2nd dress. Hannah was so great with my mom, future MIL, and sister – she had no problem redirecting decisions to me, which I SO appreciated. I also didn’t feel any pressure to pay for the veil yet, she did write down the name/cost/designer of the one I liked in case I would like to order it down the line. I absolutely loved this shop and it’s easily located next to Penn’s Landing with lots of parking.

I had an incredible experience at Lovely. The shop is beautiful & comfortable with your own private room. The temperature is comfortable (been to others where I was sweating under the lights). Jessica Downing is the absolute best! I changed my mind on the looks I liked right before coming to the shop and she quickly adjusted and pulled so many things for me to try. I never felt rushed, felt I had tons of options, and knew I was in good hands by her knowledge of the dresses available and my vision. Ended up buying my dress here & could not be happier with the experience

Hannah made my experience so comfortable and seamless. She went above and beyond to listen to my wants and things that I liked in order to best pull dresses that she thinks would fit my vision the best. Would recommend to anyone in the Philly area looking for a wedding dress!

My experience at Lovely Bride was nothing short of amazing. I was so nervous to try on dresses for the first time but Jessica immediately made me feel so comfortable. She is so easy to talk to, really listens to what you want & like, and works hard to fulfill all your needs rather than having the dresses as is. For example, I needed my plunge neckline to be taken in a bit and she was already on top of it talking about what we could do. I highly recommend her and this place to anyone that is in need of their dream wedding dress!

I just wanted to take the time to thank Hannah, the stylist who I worked with on Saturday. She was AMAZING. Her service and knowledge was 10/10! She was so supportive and intuitive on what I liked, didn’t like, wanted, and suggested. She was FAST and helpful in every way to make our hour truly magical. I couldn’t have asked for a better stylist to help me try on so many beautiful dresses. The dresses! Ugh so beautiful. She made our experience so delightful. Even the other stylists nearby were helpful and supportive too. Lovely Bride Philly was amazing. Thank you so much Hannah! I 100% will set up a second fitting with them!

Hannah was wonderful to work with. She listened to my daughters ideals for her bridal gown search. The shop has many beautiful gowns to suit every taste. Appointments are a must. Hannah pulled additional dresses as she learned my daughters style. I would recommend a trip to Lovely Bride for the bride to be.

I don’t have the words to describe just how fabulous Lovely Bride was to my daughter, they are patient, kind and very knowledgable. Nothing is too much trouble. My daughter found the dress of her dreams and it was a painless and wonderful experience! Now, my daughter was supposed to get married on 12/10/22 but, God had other plans, she’s expecting !!! We had to scramble and now her wedding is 5/28/22, she is very excited but, she was so disappointed she wouldn’t be able to wear her beautiful dress by Sarah Seven on her wedding day, it wasn’t expected until August. We called Lovely Bride and spoke to Ivy who was a tremendous help she called Sarah Seven and the dress was able to be expedited in two to three weeks, my daughter will have her dream dress for her wedding. Thank you for making my daughters dream come true. And thank you Sarah Seven for expediting the beautiful dress!

Had the best experience looking for my dream dress. It was my first ever shopping experience and I had no intention on picking something that day. Taylor was beyond amazing. She listened to what I wanted and brought in more options based on what I liked. I liked the private rooms. They had a lot of plus size options and even if they were not in my size I never once felt uncomfortable. All the staff were super sweet. I actually ended up finding my dream dress. And even then there was no pressure to buy right away but I ended up getting it anyway. Overall an amazing experience. I look forward to going back to pick up.

I had a wonderful experience finding my wedding dress at Lovely Bride. Julie, my stylist, was incredibly helpful, friendly, understanding and welcoming. She made the process super easy and not stressful. She was very relatable and took her time adjusting and explaining each dress I tried on. Most importantly, she listened to me and understood what I was looking for. I will forever recommend this boutique for brides!

I had the most fantastic experience at Lovely Bride with Hannah as my stylist. Hannah was so helpful and so nice, she showed me as many dresses as I wanted and I tried on some multiple times. I eventually returned to Lovely Bride for a second appointment because I couldn’t stop thinking about a couple dresses and Hannah was just as helpful and sweet. When I found my dress everyone was so supportive and made me feel so special. I am IN LOVE with my dress and I would recommend Lovely Bride to anyone.
