The Life of Patrice Catan Born Patrice Catanzarite, Patrice Catan-Alberty, is an entrepreneur in the bridal business. She credits her career success to her father, who opened his first small artificial flower store in 1954. The fledgling business Pat Catanzarite began was the seed that grew into Pat Catan’s Craft Centers , one of the country’s largest importers, manufacturers and wholesalers of crafts and craft-related products, now with 20 stores in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Growing up in the Great Depression and serving in World War II taught Mr. Catan the value of hard work and dedication. The Pat Catan family still carries on those same traditions and values today.
Mrs. Catan worked under her father’s tutelage for many years before opening a Strongsville location for the business in 1967. In 1968 she married Greg Alberty and began the couple’s family, working part-time teaching floral design while raising three sons.
In 1988, Mrs Catan approached her father with a new idea. A designer by trade, she wanted to open a bridal salon. With her father’s enthusiastic support, she launched Catan Bridal in 1990, with a 2,000 square-foot store. From its modest beginnings, Catan Fashions is now the country’s largest bridal store, with 54,000 square feet of space that includes a runway, three salons, 65 dressing rooms and 27 seamstresses for alterations. She and Chukie Serna, who has been her assistant for 13 years, do all of the buying at bridal markets in New York, Chicago and beyond. She has earned numerous business awards, including the Gold Award for Best Bridal Retail, every year since 2003.

Mrs. Catan has always put family first, saying her six grandchildren are the joy of her life. She has never forgotten the lessons from her father, measuring her success by the respect she earns from others, and thanking God ever day for the life she has been granted. She generously shares her time and resources with others, participating in philanthropic organizations including the Make a Wish Foundation, American Cancer Society, Red Cross and the Teenage Rape Crisis Center, to name a few.

Mrs. Catan is keeping her father’s legacy alive through the philanthropic organization he started for children, the Pat Catan Foundation. One of the group’s funding recipients was Strongsville, home of the new Pat Catan Strongsville High School Stadium.

Beyond amazing. I never thought shopping for my wedding dress would be so easy! The ladies that helped me out we're awesome and extremely helpful. They picked out a bunch of dresses for me to try on, along with letting me choose ones on my own. They worked hard to keep within my budget, and even though I actually spent more then I was planning on, it was still an amazing deal that I got on my dress. I can't wait for my first fitting in a couple weeks to try my dress on again!

WONDERFUL!!! I cannot say enough good things about Catan Fashions! Everyone here is extremely kind and helpful and they are willing to go the extra mile for you! They really know their stuff and will help you pick the perfect gown for your special day! I never felt pressured to purchase a gown, they only wanted to be sure I had the perfect dress for my big day, and they were so patient when I wasn't sure what I wanted and needed time to think. They also did a wonderful job of accessorizing me and making recommendations to complete my look and personalize my gown. They have a huge selection and are very reasonably priced. They also have an amazing bridesmaid section! Catan Fashions and their staff are truly amazing! This was the best bridal salon I visited and I highly recommend it to any bride!

Catan's is absolutely a one stop shop for anything you need for your wedding! I loved the personalized service they gave me when shopping for my wedding dress. They were patient, and helpful when trying on different dresses making sure you found the perfect one. I was able to find the wedding dress of my dreams and was very happy when they measured me and put me into the correct size of dress. My dress fit like a glove and the only alterations I needed was my hem. Though I didn't have my alterations done there, I did have them iron my dress a couple of days before my wedding. I would definitely recommend them, for when you're ready to shop for your wedding dress.

I absolutely loved my wedding dress!!! They were very helpful when I was looking and helped me pick out the perfect dress. I also had my dress held and altered there. The alteration prices were a little high, but I had a very complicated dress with a bubble hem and it was asymetrical so it was worth it to me to pay for them to alter it. Everything was perfect and I didn't have any issues at all.

I found my wedding dress at Catan's and it was the most beautiful wedding dress I've ever seen! I usually do not like other people's wedding dresses, I mean I like it for them, but not for me. So when my mom and I started looking at wedding dresses I knew it was going to be tough! We went to two other stores before we drove out to Strongsville to Catan's. The first two stores were a bust!

At Catan's, you have your own private dressing room, which I loved! I hate how other places make you come out into this open area where everyone in the whole store is looking at you in a dress that doesn't fit right and you aren't sure if you like it or not. Catan's isn't like this, at least not for the brides, I think it is like that for bridesmaids and others.

Jela did my alterations and she is fiesty and awesome! She did a great job! I love my dress!!!

I bought my dress from them 16 years ago. They were amazaing. The bussling was expensive, but worth it!! You could see this elaborate design on the train perfectly when the dress was bussled and you couldn't see any of the hooks while it was down. I recommend that you do your research first. Be prepared!! Bring a couple of different bra options, especially if you are hard to fit. Bring your own shoes and bring some help. Dress shopping here is not for the faint of heart!! It can be extremely overwhelming. Bring pictures.

They were helpful from the moment I walked in the store to try on gowns to the second I carried my dress out the door. I purchased their alterations package when I purchased the dress and it was well worth it...I can't imagine what my alterations would have been without it! It fit like a second skin, but in the most perfect possible way! I would and do recommend them to any and everyone!

I purchased my wedding gown from Catan's. My experience there was wonderful. My first trip in went very well--so well in fact that I found my wedding dress! My coordinator helped me & my mom look through the thousands of dresses they had and pulled ones with the sleek profile I was looking for. She also let me puruse the Couture sections even though she knew everything in there was out of the budget! After trying on a few dresses that I had approved and coming up short, my coordinator gave me one that wasn't exactly what I was looking for in texture, but told me to try it--it ended up being the ONE! She then moved me to one of the Couture dressing rooms to have a more glamorous feel and picked the most perfect veil for the dress that I ended up purchasing.

When my dress came about 6-8 months later, it fit perfectly due to the great measurment taking skills of my coordinator! The dress company, Allure, made my dress to fit my measurements--so it needed zero alterations when it arrived! All it needed was a bustle!

During the wait period while the dress was being made, I emailed photos of potential shoe options to my coordinator. She offered her opinion on looks, comfort, and wearability. In the end, she told me one pair would look perfect and match perfectly but that the rhinestones may catch on the overlay of the dress. She told me to go with them anyway and to be careful. I ended up buying the shoes and they were perfect! They did catch on the overlay until it was bustled up and then it was smooth dancing the rest of the night :)

I felt like royalty at Catan's and I loved the experience I had there.
I don't see how any bride could leave there empty handed, they have the largest selection of dresses in the US and prices for every budget! I loved it!
I also found my flower girl dress there, they have a huge bridesmaids, mother's, and flower girl section, as well as prom.

I went in there about 2 weeks before my wedding and pulled a lot of strings for me to have my perfect dress and veil. The seamstress even worked very hard to have my dress ready in time. Very friendly people and very dedicated to their jobs. They will do anything for you if it is within their limits. I would recommend them to anyone!

Catan Fashions did a beautiful job on my dress. My dress was gorgous and I absolutely love it. The staff is so friendly and really took care of me. I also got my bridesmaid dresses here and they were beautiful also. The only problem we had was one of my girls didn't fit very well when it came in. But we worked it out and everything was beautiful. I would recommend any bride to use Catan's.

I didn't even end up using this vendor, but felt the need to write a review anyway, because the service was that impressive. It just so happened that the dress that was made for me was at another store, and it really made me sad not to be able to buy from Pat Catan's. My runner up dress was here, and they have more options than any other place I went. There dresses are gorgeous, and each one is unique. I even came in right before closing, and they were still so helpful! I highly recommend buying your dress here. Even if you are not in the area, it is worth the drive. I promise no one else has a bigger selection of gorgeous dresses in all price ranges, or better service.

Brenda Kucinski was THE BEST!!!! I don't know what I would have done without her. I really only wanted to use her for the day or coordination so that I would not have to worry about the details but as I got closer & closer to my wedding, she became more & more helpful, especially since I was planning in Ohio from Texas! Brenda fixed problems before I even knew there was one. She was so great & had so many great ideas & advice in general. At one point, I started to have a stress breakdown & she was there to help reassure me & calm me down only a few days before the wedding. She was truly a godsend on my wedding day. WELL WORTH IT & great prices.

I live out of state and had found my bridal gown at another store (out of town). I wanted to order from the same store that would be taking care of my alterations and close to my parent's house in Cleveland where I would be staying when I was in town for wedding planning visits. Catan's did not intend to carry the actual dress I fell in love with but they did order the dress for me and it arrived in plenty of time for the wedding. The alterations I needed were minimal but they were fast and professional. I also purchased my bridesmaid dresses at Catan's. The price was very reasonable (in comparison to others) and they gave a discount because I had purchased my gown from the store.

Catan Fashions is seriously a one-stop bridal shop. I was able to find my dress, shoes, veil, blusher and headpiece there and would have gotten my bridesmaid dresses there too but was unable to make the 2 hour trip to Cleveland with any of my bridesmaids. I felt as though I got a great wedding ensamble for the price adn the service was very good. The alterations were perfect (I'm a pretty short girl and know a decent hemline when I see it, the seamstresses at Catan's are professionals) and they have such a wide variety of dresses, shoes and veils that it wasn't hard to find items that matches for a perfect look. I would definitely recommend them.

Catan's has an excellent selection of gowns in any price range. I brought in a few pictures and my consultant pulled those dresses for me to try. She also allowed my family and I to browse the racks of dresses. I'm glad she allowed us to do that because that is how we found my dress! After I selected my dress, the consultant took me to another room with "reception style" lighting, which allowed me to see how my dress sparkled in the dimmer light. It was a wonderful experience! When I went back after my dress came in, another consultant brought me a variety of headpieces, veils, and jewelry to try on. I was able to select my headpiece and veil that day. Also, for purchasing my dress at Catan's, I was given a $250 coupon towards jewelry, a headpiece, or a veil. This coupon allowed me to get an expensive headpiece for free! Without it I would probably have had to settle for something cheaper that wasn't perfect. Catan's really helped me to create the perfect look for my wedding day.

I had a great experience at Catan's. I looked for dresses in the Couture Department/Section, where they preceded to make me feel special and beautiful. The ladies there really knew the designers (I already knew I wanted an Alvina Valenta...oh, but which one, was the question!). They really sold me on a cathedral veil, which turned out gorgeous! Once purchased, they were very diligent in letting me know the next steps, alterations, etc. Olga was an exceptional seamstress, very precise. I completely trusted her with "the Dress" and my veil. Great place, even if overwhelming to walk into, they are very personable and professional at Catan's. They know their stuff!

I got my wedding dress at Catan Fashions and 2 of my bridesmaids got their dresses there as well. None of us had alterations done at the store since we all had seamstresses who charge much less. Everyone was great at the store they look at what you like and then have you look around the store the girls will pull dresses as well as let you pick out dresses you like. The help you figure out what looks good on you after you start trying on. They are also very knowledgable on most of the dresses and give suggestions for changing dresses such as added capped sleeves or a row of buttons. They are also very nice about explaining the size chart of the designer before they measure you and tell you what size you need to order since every designer has his own size chart. One of my bridesmaids dresses was sent wrong by the designer and Catan's took care of making sure a new dress came in on time.

I bought my wedding gown at Catan Fashions and we also purchased the bridesmaids dresses here too. Overall, my experience with Catan was excellent, the consultant who helped me select my dress was encouraging, and listened to the comments I had about each dress I tried on, so she was able to narrow down my choices and pull dresses for me that were more of the style I was looking for. I am thrilled with my dress purchase, it was within my budget and I can't wait to wear it.
However, Catan's alterations package is very expensive. It's about $500 for the package, which includes ALL alterations, even if you only need your dress hemmed and bustled. I am taking my dress elsewhere for alterations.
We had a good experience with buying bridesmaids dresses too. Huge selection of dresses to choose from, so we found what we wanted easily. Our consultant this time (a different one) was absent pretty much the whole appointment. She set us up in dressing rooms and then walked away for the rest of the time. That gave me the freedom to pick the dresses on my own with my bridal party, and I'm fairly decisive, so that's ok with me, but if you'd like more help from the consultant, I'd ask them to stick around.

Overall, Catan's has an excellent selection of all types of gowns and was a great place to shop.

The entire Wedding dress - event from looking, picking, buying, and fitting was fun and eventful. It was like the TV show - "Say YES to the Dress" - Catans was enjoyable to work with and every detail was cared for. My bridemaids dresses were also purchased at Catans which was not as easy. since two of my girls were out of state the fiting/measuring process was hard. Every bridemaid dress came in on time but they were all way to large and had to be refitted. I guess that is better than to small. They did try very hard to match color and provided color swatches as needed.

I must have visited 5 or 6 times (sometimes with an appointment, sometimes not) before I made my mind up. They were extremely understanding and patient, and they gave me amazing service every time. I finally went back telling myself this would be the last time, and when I got there, the designer I was looking for had just arrived for a trunk sale. Surprise! I found THE dress, AND got 10% off! As for value, I had a modest budget and found several beautiful, very unique dresses (I wasn't a very traditional bride) for around a thousand or less. I was really pleased with the selection.

The only reason I don't give them 5 stars on everything: the dresses are a good value, but I found the alteration costs to be less than impressive. As for flexibility: I didn't realize until I picked the dress up, but I had to make a decision right then and there on whether I wanted to purchase an alterations package. Once I walked out of the store with the dress, I couldn't bring it back. Since my gown arrived months ahead of schedule, I hadn't priced out any other seamstresses yet, so I didn't know if it would be a good value to leave it or not. Ultimately, I had to take it home that day and find a salon in Rocky River.

I definitely recommend checking them out - it's a bit like the "Kleinfeld" experience on Say Yes to the Dress, but right here in NE Ohio.

Catan's has some of the best bridal dresses around! The amount of dresses they carry is unlike anywhere else. The quality of dresses they have is also amazing. The number 1 compliment I received on my wedding day was about my bridal gown. It was GORGEOUS!!! Sometimes the seamstresses come off as a little rude and short-tempered, but otherwise I had an amazing experience. Bindu was my consultant, and she nailed the appointment! The dress, emotions, everything. Every time I would go back for a fitting, I would find her to say hi, or come see my dress. She was wonderful. Thank you for the most beautiful dress ever!

I got my wedding dress at Catan's, as did my mother and the mother of the groom. The dress selection process went perfectly and they were quick to contact me when things came in. I had no problems during alterations; however, my mother showed up to pick up her dress (which is an hour's drive from her home) the week before the wedding, only to find out it had been in the "wrong pile" and wasn't done. They expected her to make the drive back the next day to pick it up, but she ended up coming with me the next week when I picked up mine. Luckily, everything fit perfectly! I would still recommend Catan's!

I purchased my wedding dress here & was very impressed. Originally, I made an appointment just to get an idea as to what I'd like because I would never be able to afford a dress from there. However, the day of my appointment was during a huge sale they were having!
My consultant suggested a dress for me and once I put it on, I knew! The fact that she could get a sense of my style & what I was looking for after knowing me for 15 minutes was impressive. She was very nice, respecful, and not pushy at all. And I love the store because it's intimate--not like David's when you reveal your dress to a bunch of other people next to a bride trying the exact same one on.

I ordered my dress and all of the bridesmaid dresses from Catan's. They have a large selection and a knowledgeable staff. I am not too girly and did not know what I wanted at all, but the saleswoman helped me find a dress I absolutely loved. I really liked that all of the bridesmaids could go online to their website and place their dress order- my bridesmaids were scattered all over the country and this was very helpful to us. I would not recommend having your alterations done here. They are super, super, super expensive- expect to pay $400ish for basic things like hemming, darts, and bustle. I did not have mine done here because a friend of mine did and her dress came back too small (even though it fit her to begin with and she did not gain any weight) and they refused to fix it. She had to take it to another seamstress (who only charged a fraction of what Catan's charged her to mess it up). Still, that is a friend's experience and not mine. I was satisfied overall with my purchase.

I also had my dress altered, bustlled, and pressed there and though it was expensive they did a beautiful job. Everything came in on time, was the correct order, and there were no issues. The store is a Bridal dream, I recommend them highly!

I worked with a girl named Tara who was amazing. I walked in having no idea what I wanted, but Tara took the time to figure it all out for me. I would definitely recommend working with her. When another lady took my measurements she did not measure correctly. My dress came in 2 sizes too big! I brought this to Tara's attention and she made sure that Catan's altered at no cost to me. Catan's has a large selection and their prices are reasonable.

All in all, they were good, but I later discovered cheaper places. I do have to go back to the fact that they were overpriced, especially the alternation package which cost me an additional $500. My dress was $440 but I did find for $375 at another location several weeks later. They were, however, very professional and responsive. Also, it is a great one-stop shop - albeit expensive. You could get veils, shoes, clothes for bridesmaid (they have their own section at the store), clothes for children, clothes for mothers of bride/groom, shoes (limited selection), and undergarments (limited selection. Another part of store provides tuxes for the guys. I loved that...a lot, but you do pay for such convenience.

I went into dress shopping not knowing exactly what I wanted, I think I was fairly picky with this part of the wedding planning. The staff were helpful in narrowing down what I wanted. After my first visit I thought I had my dress, but I wanted to sleep on it. Overnight I was stressing thought I made the wrong decision, so I called first thing in the morning to try it on. The staff spent just as much time with me on my second visit as my first. They were very understanding in my indecisiveness. I ended up switching my dress and it was the best decision I made.
I did all my alterations through Catans as well and I'm glad I did. It was convenient for me to not have to drive around my dress and they kept my dress stored properly up until just days before the big day. I did not have any worries that my dress was not in good hands. My dress fit like a glove and it looked perfect!

Thank you for making me look like the bride I always imagined.

I have a lovely friend who worked at Catan's, and she spent 4 hours with us finding the right dress! She helped me try on dress after dress until we narrowed it down to just a few. I wound up ordering my dress on my first visit! The dress arrived in almost perfect condition (had a few spots on the train), and I had it altered by a family friend. However, the consultant who worked with us when we picked up the dress was very unprofessional. She was slightly grumpy and left us to ourselves in the dressing room until a different consultant found us. Other than that, I enjoyed the experience!

I got my wedding dress at Catan's after much searching for the perfect dress. I actually ended up with one that one of the consultants picked out for me. They were very helpful, although I am a size 12 and they kept pulling size 6 samples insisting that i could "squeeze" into them. They finally got the hint that I wouldn't even attempt it and eventually stopped bringing the smaller dresses to me. I was also surprised when they measured me, they had to recommend I get a size 16, but the sales woman flat out told me that if I ordered a size 12 I most likely wouldn't have to get any alterations. And she was right, I ordered a size 12 and it fit perfectly with no alterations. The only gripe I really have is that their alterations department was ridiculously expensive. Luckily I avoided paying $300 to bustle my dress and did it myself for about $5. Overall though the service was great, the selection was wonderful, and my dream dress was a lot cheaper than I thought it would be! Especially from Catan's!

The dress buying experience was fabulous! The Couture section staff are just amazing - they weren't pushy or "salesy", unlike other boutiques I had been to. They were patient, willing to work with you on anything you needed and had great advice/suggestions.

The only draw back was working with the seamstress, she had a hard time working around my schedule. I was living in L.A. up until the wedding and needed someone to be flexible when it came to fitting appointments. She also was unable to give me proper advice when it came to my dress and the appropriate undergarments for the dress.

I purchased my wedding dress (as well as several prom dresses back in the day) from Catan's. They were extremely flexible in allowing me to get a last minute appointment because I was visiting form out of town. The third dress I tried on was the winner and selected by Catan staff. We stayed within budget and the process was easy. I allowed Catan's to also do my alterations. it is nice because they keep and store the dress for you and then press right before wedding. My Dad was able to pick it up late Friday afternoon before our Saturday wedding. Olga did a fantastic job with my alterations and really helped making suggestions and enlightening me on things a never though of....like wear a strapless bra the morning of no matter what so you do not have indents in your shoulders, etc. Would recommend them to future brides!

I found my dress on the first try here! They have the biggest selection in the area and great hours. But perhaps that leads to slightly higher prices? Folks in bridal are definitely more helpful and professional than folks in bridesmaids/special occasions. Alterations were done beautifully! Main critique is I wish they would make sure they kept you with the same consultant so they'd be assured the commission of sale.

Catans were very efficient in trying to help the bridesmaids with their dresses, but no one asked who the bride was until WAY later. I needed an outfit, but I guess since I was old, they didn't think to ask me. I'm 59, second marriage & needed an appropriate dress. I had to shop on my own later, like 4 weeks later. I found a beautiful dress, Mother of the Bride for almost $1,000, which I thought was ridiculous, but I wanted it because it looked like a wedding dress. I bought another GOWN, which I said I wouldn't wear because of my age, but all the gowns I looked at were cheaper than my dress. Anyway, the gown was champagne & ivory, my colors, and the gown was ivory with gold scalloped threads thruout the whole dress. I wore the gown for the ceremony and the dress to sing to my groom (I Just Call You Mine, Martina Mcride). I would go back, they do have a great shop, a lot to choose from and friendly. Thank you Catan's

Throughout the visits to Catan's for shopping and dress fittings, the service provided by the staff has been inconsistent. Some of the employees are extremely helpful and of tremendous service, while others act cold and disinterested. However, their wide selection can't be beat, and they provide a large range of wedding needs, including accessories and bridal party outfits.

Purchasing a bridal gown at Catan's was a bit of a highs and lows experience. Overall they were very nice and knowledgeable but after I ordered a dress they called two weeks later to say the could no longer sell that dress and I'd have to find a new one. I came back and they offered me a discount on dresses and alterations. The second appointment they were much less attentive but I did find a second dress. Alterations for me went well and my seamstress was great. My bridesmaid had her alterations done there and when she came in for the appointment they put her in a room, forgot about her and the seamstress when to lunch! Lots of highs and lows with Catans!

The people who work here are not super friendly, but they were helpful and knowledgeable. Alterations are more expensive then I would have ever expected: 150$ just to have the dress pressed (because the dress arrives a little wrinkled). $399 for hem alteration + pressing the dress + insurance & they will keep the dress till the day of the wedding. Its another $100 more ($499) if you need any alterations to the bodice (upper part) like cups sow in, etc.

I got my amazing dress from Catan Fashions. The lady who helped me pick out the dress was amazing. She was the one who found it for me and I am still in love with my dress after my wedding. I got so many compliments on my dress. The only thing is that the were bad at communicating. I live in PA, so it took my three hours to get there. I had to go four times and each time they told me to come back and it will be my fitting and the next time I there they tell me I was just there to try it on to see if it fits. So I had to keep making appointments and travel that far because they weren't really telling me what the appointment was for that day. I was getting frustrated.

"Meh" experience with Catan's. The dress-selection process was great, and that's where Catan's could have received a 5/5 from me for service. The associate working with us was very helpful, and I didn't feel a ton of pressure from her throughout the appointment.

However, the alterations department left a lot to be desired, service-wise. My mom and I decided to buy the alterations package for the ease and convenience, but in hindsight I wish we had taken the dress to another seamstress. The alterations woman I worked with rushed me through every. single. appointment. I understand they get backed up at times, but it is unacceptable for me to feel like I can't get an appropriate amount of time and attention from this woman. Beyond that, she HATED the fact that I wanted to remove the train from my dress. For God's sake, I just paid $$$ for this dress, let me do what I want with it! She made no effort in hiding how much she loathed having to cut it off. It was ridiculous! On my wedding day, the dress looked beautiful and I felt great in it, but the overall stress I had in dealing with Catan's wasn't worth it. I could have gotten the same results from another seamstress.

I was somewhat disapointed in my experience with Catan's. The dress I ended up picking was perfect and just so happened to be the one the woman that was helping us picked out! As soon as I told her what I was looking for, she said "I know exactly the dress" and she was right! However, when she took my measurements to decide what size dress to order, she marked me for a size 10. This didn't surprise me, as I have wider hips but a small bust/rib cage. When the dress came in I went to the first fitting and it was HUGE! It wouldn't even stay up on me without clipping it. Then they told me the MINIMUM cost for alterations there would be $450!!! I was so upset. I felt like the measurements they took on me were not accurate to use for the shape of the dress (A-line, sweetheart cut, not form fitting at all). I decided to take my dress to a small shoppe near my parent's house to have the alterations done and the woman there measured me again (mind you, I did not lose or gain a single pound since I ordered the dress!). She said based off of my measurements and the shape of the dress she would have ordered me a size 6!! Thankfully she was so great and able to handle the alterations for only $95--including taking 2 & 1/2 inches off of each side of the bust of the dress, adding cups, and even pressing/steaming & packaging the dress so it was ready for my wedding day. THANK GOD for this wonderful woman who works to see the smile on people's faces, not for the $$ that come along with the words "bridal." To this day, I still think Catan's coerced me into buying the bigger size dress in hopes that they could rip me off the $450 to have my alterations done there.

My dress was lovely and there were a ton of dresses to choose from. The associate we worked with did a great job as well. I didn't have as great a time in the alterations department though. First off, their alterations are extremely overpriced and I should have taken it elsewhere. I was rushed through the appointments. And I was very dissatisfied with the way that my bustle turned out. It looked terrible.
Also, a few days before my wedding, I pulled out my veil to look at it and it was not the one that I ordered. It was the correct length & color, but I had paid extra for a gold edge to be put on it & it was not there. I should have looked when we left Catan's, but the lady had it all packaged for us, ready to leave. I called them and they told me that they didn't offer a gold edge on the veil I ordered. And that I didn't actually pay extra for anything. The extra $20 on my bill was something else entirely.
I was not entirely happy with them, but I still loved my dress. But that is much more thanks to miss Maggie Sottero =)

Pretty much all of our wedding attire came from Catan Fashions including my wedding dress, veils, accessories, bridesmaids gowns (5) and our mother-of-the-bride dress. Clearly we were loyal customers. While Catan provided the styles and the dresses we wanted, the service left a little to be desired. The alterations ladies were not very friendly and rushed us through scheduling appointments (demanded that I had my first fitting 4 months before the wedding) and trying on the gown. I was charged a extra "special order fee" on shoes that they typically have in stock but didn't on the one day I was there to purchase them. And they wouldn't steam the bridesmaids dresses because we didn't purchase alterations (so we were being punished that all the dresses were ordered and fit correctly?) After spending thousands of dollars at the store it still seemed like they were squeezing us out for every dime we had. By the time my wedding came around I was really happy to not have to deal with anyone at Catan Fashions again!

I had a great experience with Catan's while getting my dress...they were very attentive and helpful in the entire process.

The alterations were very expensive, but knowing that they had experience, we went with them and felt it was well worth it.

However, I noticed on my wedding day that there was a blood stain on my dress. Luckily, my dress had rouging and was able to be pinned up to cover the stain. Unfortunately, I contacted them by e-mail twice after the wedding to ask if anything could be done (monetary compensation, dry cleaning services, etc.) and have not received any response.

I did, otherwise, have a GREAT experience with them, and I don't want to discount that...but it's been very frustrating not even receiving an acknowledgment e-mail back saying they received my e-mail.

Their selection for plus size brides were limited, but I applaud them for having ANY plus sized dresses to try one. Most bridal salons have none. They at least have a plus sized section. They were a little bit pricey, but I only ended up buying my dress there but no accessories.

I had issues with ordering, but they were the fault of the designer not theirs. After 4 dresses being delivered at the fault of the designer, they gave me half priced alterations and a free bra, so at least they made up for it.

Catans is great for their wide variety. I would recommend NOT allowing them to do your alterations however. My sister had my nieces dress altered there, and they charged her more for the alterations, than we paid for the dress (it was over $100) and my niece is 4. I also ran into some problems with the seamstress who did my dress. I paid $400 for the alterations, and it wasn't even done right. My dress was dragging on the ground all night. For that price, I would expect my dress to have been lined in gold and not too long. All in all though, the service was fine and the selection cant be beat.

I didn't give Catan's a great score for a couple of reasons but let me first start with what I did like about Catan's.....They do have an amazing selection of dresses in which the dress I picked out was fantastic and everyone comments on how beautiful I looked...Also, the ladies that helped me during my search for dresses were extremely helpful and kind.

That being said I had a couple of issues with their staff and also staff had communication problems with eachother. I don't live in Ohio (was just visiting my fiance's family for the week) when we decided to check out dresses. Well when I decided to go with my dress we told them that we would need it shipped to where I live since I don't live in Ohio. But they needed my fiance's mother to come in and make sure everything looks okay. They had my write down my address here. Well I call to talk about the fact that I need it shipped and their is all this mix up. Their always seemed to be a mix up between the dresses department and the shipping department. Every time I was trying to get everything straightened out I had to repeat that I don't live there I live in North Carolina. I have no clue why they couldn't understand that being that they asked me to write down my address here.

Also, the bridesmaids/prom department is the worst section. One lady working back there is unprofessional and I feel does not have any business being in the service industry. My bridesmaids (my sister-in-law who been to Catan's and had the same problem with this lady) asked her a simple question and this lady looked at her like she had 10 heads. All my bridesmaids asked was if we can see a catalog of this one designer. The lady looked at her like she was crazy and went along like she was never asked a question and continued to show us other dresses! Totally rude

We bought my wedding dress, veil and mother's dress at Catans. The best thing is the variety. There are a lot of options to choose from. My mother was 100% pleased with her service and her dress. I felt like they kept bringing me dresses to try on that were out of my budget, even though I was clear about how much I wanted to spend. I ended up spending $500 more than planned. I also didn't like my veil. I felt like I was pushed into buying one (I didn't want one to being with) and then I what I got was stiff and looked horrible in the photos. Overall, I would recommend taking a look around, but don't let it be the only place you go.

I always said I'd never go to Catan's....too expensive, but as luck would have it, they were the only "loca" vendor to carry my designer's dresses....The price was OK...but the alteration package that we purchased at Catan's was HIGH....and to top it off, my alterations weren't that great. I specifically asked that my straps be taken in a bit more, they were loose when I put the gown on at my last fitting, and sure enough...she never did tack them up...so thankfully we had "hollywood tape" that helped keep them in place....but sure enough, in pictures you can see where they are buckeling from being too long...not a great look, but it is what it is....advise...DO A FINAL, FINAL FITTING BEFORE THEY PRESS THE DRESS!!!!!

They were very slow and a little unorganized, but they have the widest selection in the area and all of my maids got their dresses. The downside was that every single one of them had to be altered.

As the bride, the staff working with the wedding dresses were amazing, however the staff was not so kind to my bridal party as well as my mother. I was extremely disappointed in the attitude I received from the staff that was helping my bridal party choose their dresses. Not only was it difficult to find someone to help us but when we did they also made it very clear that they did not like the fact that I let my bridal party choose their own dresses and that they were not the same color. I had family and friends come all the way in from Chicago to help me choose the dress and to get their dresses fitted at Catan Fashions. Needless to say when they gave my mother and maid of honor a hard time about not wanting to complete the fittings after they flew into Ohio I was very upset. I would only recommend Brides to get their dresses their but not anyone else involved in the wedding.

The dress was very pretty and surprisingly affordable and the tailor was great. They have a large selection, but not the boutique designers I was really interested in. I was also never impressed with the professionalism... it just never felt like anyone was really happy to be there and they didn't care too much that I was getting ready for such an important day. When my fitting appointment was double booked, I waited an hour for the next open spot and never got an apology. I also wanted my dress customized (I wanted the sheath under a lace overlay dyed), but they said they wouldn't/couldn't help. Over all they were okay, but little things didn't impress me.

I purchased my dress from Catan and had a wonderful experience picking it out and ordering it. The girls who helped me were great! I was measured and was between sizes so the girl strongly recommended that I order the larger size even though I assured her that if I changed size, I would be smaller not larger. When I picked up my dress, it was at least two sizes too big. Partially because I lost weight, mostly because it was ordered too big to begin with. I felt rushed into signing for my dress and they assured me that "any seamstress could just pull it here and there and ta-daa it's perfect!!!" I went to my seamstress and she told me that they were absolutely incorrect and she would have to take apart the entire dress to fix it. I called and complained because I was upset and was told that it was entirely my fault (even though I felt pressured) and that their "advice" is just advice. Technically I could have ordered my dress 3 sizes too small and they couldn't stop me, yet somehow I felt extremely bullied into purchasing the size I did. Now, the dress itself was perfect and the quality was great but I would not recommend going here unless you are 100% sure of the size that you need. I was very disappointed with their customer service, considering this is a higher-end store. I guess that's what I get for not buying a Couture gown from them...I didn't spend enough so they didn't care...

I thought the set up at Catan's was wonderful. I had a great experience with picking out my dress and placing the order. My bridesmaids experience was a different story. The dress ordering was okay but when the dresses came in they were ragidy, and falling apart. We didn't use their alteration department due to people living in different cities. Catan's was unwilling to work with me on getting my girls money back for the dresses. You had to have an appointment or you would just get ignored.

Patricia (the owner?) gets 5 stars because she is so sweet and helpful. Unfortunately the overall experience and consultant only deserve one star! I was only dress shopping in OH so I could include my future MIL. Catan's has the largest selection of bridal everything so I was quite excited for my Saturday afternoon appointment. Our consultant Ms. Kimberly greeted us exuberantly, brought us to a private room, then asked the details of what I was looking for and budget. The appointment went COMPLETELY DOWNHILL from there...

The sliding doors that were supposed to give me privacy while changing did not close so I ended up changing in front of my guests- not what you would expect when your about to spend $$$. All of the dresses she was pulling were not what I had described or showed her picture of. Kimberly didn't help me in/out of the dresses because she was running around like crazy so my Maid of Honor had to help me. I politely declined each dress describing what I did/did not like about each one. She grew more and more annoyed, unfriendly, and the appointment simply got awkward for my whole party!

The last two dresses I did actually like quite a bit, but there was no celebration as the appointment had went too far downhill. The one I liked did not have a pricetag. I called today and it was $2570. I told her my budget max was $1500. So disappointing.

Besides the above, here are a few more thoughts of the this place:

- VERY few if any gowns appropriate for a tropical destination wedding
- I did not see many gowns under $1700
- I'm a street size 6 and there were many gowns I could not not try on because they were so small!!
- They did have the largest selection of bridesmaid and mother of groom/bride dresses that I've seen
- They did have a good selection of different bridal gowns if you are in the $2200+ budget area

I would not recommend anyone going here :(

We went to Catan Fashions because they have such a large selection. I was able to find my wedding dress at Catan's, and they did have several that I had chosen from magazines and such. However, there were several things that I had issues with regarding my exeperience with Catan Fashions. First, the girl who was always at the desk when were were there was always rude. Wedding dress shopping is supposed to be a happy experience and she brought it down every time. Second, the alterations package is ridiculously expensive and then they made us pay for the cups for the bust on top of what we were paying for the alterations. Third, the person who did my alterations (Olga) was late every time I had an appointment. I had asked during one of my appointments about pulling my dress up from the waist so it wouldn't ruin the beading at the bottom of my dress. She completely disregarded my concerns about the beading being ruined. Not only was it ruined in one place, but the bottom of my dress ripped in several places because the dress was not hemmed high enough...I was walking on it the entire night. Lastly, at my final fitting Olga was running late on her appointments and rushed the appointment. We baraly had time to actually look at the dress and make sure everything looked ok because she was taking me out of the dress almost immediately after I put it on. Catan Fashions does have a great selection, but I would not recommend getting alterations done there.

The dress turned out nice eventually, but HORROR STORIES:
We found a dress that was more than we wanted to spend, but not too bad. We had heard that their alterations were overpriced, but we didn't know where else to go, so we bit the bullet and payed the $400 (The dress didn't need hemming so they knocked off $100). We were out of state so the bride had limited time fittings could be scheduled. Everything went well until the month before the wedding. Alterations requested months before were still only pinned in place and we were adding sleeves to the dress, but not a big deal, they told us we could pick the dress up the Monday before the wedding. We went in that Monday and the sleeves and alterations were still not sewn in and the dress was not pressed, so they told us they needed more time and to come back Wed or Thurs. We came in Thurs at 2:00 to pick up the dress and there was STILL an alteration pinned in place and the dress was not pressed. They fixed the alteration and pressed the dress... poorly. At this point, we found Mrs. Catan, who properly yelled at her employees and got everything done and threw in free dress preservation. The simple "pickup" took 3 1/2 hours of the valuable 2 days before the wedding!

It may very well be "America's largest bridal salon" as they advertize, but customer service is sorely lacking. When my daughter showed up for her first fitting, it turned out that they had ordered the wrong dress. Mistakes happen, we agree, but there's no excuse for rudeness. She was told that we should have known because we hadn't paid the right price. After trying on over 20 gowns at three different places, and being told about this discount and that rebate, who were we to say "I think you forgot to charge us $200 more?" Really? Come on.

Not only a very unprofessional comment on the owner's part, but downright mean to a young bride who was already devastated that it wasn't her dress. They did get the dress in a month before the wedding thanks to the events coordinator, and the seamstress was wonderful in getting in three fittings so the dress would be ready on time. But do you think they offered her a discount on her veil or hairpiece? Nothing, not a penny. So be sure to check your bill if you decide to shop there. And a last piece of advice: don't let them start you out in the couture room. You can find gowns just as beautiful in the main room for a lot less.

LADIES DO NOT GO TO CATANS!! I know it may be easy to go there bc it's a one stop shop, but after everything, going through that place was my biggest regret! First, the bridesmaid and alterations department was absolutely terrible!! The alterations department LOST one of my bridesmaids dresses 1MONTH before my wedding. IT took 3 days for the manager to get in contact with me about the situation, and I actually had to send an e-mail to the owner for her to call me back. During my conversation with the owner, her rudeness made me cry. At one point she told me "it was just one dress" and at another point she told me that I could just return all the dresses and then I would have nothing!
The bridesmaids department was so disorganized, and the women did a horrible job of measuring my girls. My one friend was told she needed a size 12 and she decided to get a size 8, and even the size 8 needed to be taken in. There are far to many clueless people that work there and I feel it's worth it to avoid the headache and go somewhere else. QUALITY is much better than QUANTITY!

I can't stress enough not to go here. They ordered my dress incorrectly, lied about it, and offered me no apology. I found a dress I loved, only it came with a corset back and I wanted a zipper. They said the manufacturer didn't make a zipper and they would order a size bigger and charge me a hundred dollars to have their seamstress alter it (The manufacturer does make a zipper for no extra charge). I never received a call when my dress came in so I called, and they said it just came in that day (yeah right) and I asked them not to alter it to a zipper until I tried it on. They said they would never alter anything until after my dress inspection. When I went in for my first fitting I put on the dress expecting it to be a corset. However, it was a zipper back, and about 6 inches to small. I was very confused and asked the woman helping me why it wasn't a corset (I told her about the phone call I had made), she offered no apology and said that the manufacturer had made it with a zipper and that they had not altered it themselves. She then insinuated that I asked to order the wrong size (that didn't check out) she then said I gained weight and remeasured me saying I had gained a few inches (I was measured a 2 days later and my measurements were the same a when I originally ordered the dress). Still, without apologizing, she and another woman blamed it on the manufacturer's sizing and said they would send it back to the manufacturer, but they had to call on Monday because it was too late to call them that day (I had driven two hours and had to make a late appointment). I wanted to see what actually happened, so I called the next day hoping to talk to another employee, and was told again that it was the manufacturer's fault and they had called after I left and talked to them (the manufacturer was closed so they couldn't have called). This employee did apologize, and when I told her something seemed off, she offered to look into it. She called later that night saying that they had not ordered it a size larger like they should have, that their seamstress did alter it in the store after it came in with a corset (after I asked them not to), and asked me to take my money back. I did get my money back but not enough time to order the dress with a zipper before the wedding. Apparently they'd rather lie to make a few extra bucks than run a respectable business.

Worst service ever! Don’t waste your time! I'm getting married in November and searched all of Cleveland for a dress with sleeves. Catans had 1, which was ugly, but I thought I'd try it on anyways. First, if you do go, never go on a Saturday. Even though I made an appointment, I had to wait an hour before my girl actually helped me. When I hated the dress they had with sleeves she suggested we add sleeves to a dress and brought one that might work. She then brought the alterations lady into the room, and she swore up and down that "sleeves were no problem to add, we'll just attach right here, it'll look like this, yada yada." So I buy the dress, and on my invoice they even write "to add sleeves." This was mid-February. Then the dress didn't even get in from the vendor until mid-June and the first dress fitting appointment they had open wasn't until mid-July! I finally go to try on my dress and mention the sleeves, which is the whole reason I bought it, and the alterations lady 1. Says she has no idea what I'm talking about, even tho it's on my invoice they never ordered the extra material to make the sleeves and that wouldn't come in until October and 2. They couldn't add sleeves the way they originally told me they could. I was there for three hours and by the end just wanted to cry. But they didn't care. The only reason I bought that dress was because they assured me they could easily do something they now said won't work and don't have the material for. It was a mess!

Worst service ever! Don’t waste your time! I'm getting married in November and searched all of Cleveland for a dress with sleeves. Catans had 1, which was ugly, but I thought I'd try it on anyways. First, if you do go, never go on a Saturday. Even though I made an appointment, I had to wait an hour before my girl actually helped me. When I hated the dress they had with sleeves she suggested we add sleeves to a dress and brought one that might work. She then brought the alterations lady into the room, and she swore up and down that "sleeves were no problem to add, we'll just attach right here, it'll look like this, yada yada." So I buy the dress, and on my invoice they even write "to add sleeves." This was mid-February. Then the dress didn't even get in from the vendor until mid-June and the first dress fitting appointment they had open wasn't until mid-July! I finally go to try on my dress and mention the sleeves, which is the whole reason I bought it, and the alterations lady 1. Says she has no idea what I'm talking about, even tho it's on my invoice they never ordered the extra material to make the sleeves and that wouldn't come in until October and 2. They couldn't add sleeves the way they originally told me they could. I was there for three hours and by the end just wanted to cry. But they didn't care. The only reason I bought that dress was because they assured me they could easily do something they now said won't work and don't have the material for. It was a mess! And no matter who I talked to or how many times I called, they acted like they didn't care. And when you call they just keep transferring you all over the place or put you on hold. Also normal alterations there are $500, and anything else is extra. Sleeves would have been another $300+. This place is just all about your money, and not about making your wedding day special.

Two weddings for friends. Lovely how the dresses were mysteriously "held up" in customs, TWICE! The Weddings were over a year apart. Guess they didn't bank on the same girl involved with both weddings, but they gave me the EXACT same excuse, verbatim. Literally, I have phone conversations recorded from both wedding parties. It's like they have a script.

The ladies who helped me pick out my dress were absolutely wonderful. However, the good experience stops right there. Immediately after I entered contract and paid $5000+ their treatment to me and my guests was absolutely HORRID to say the least! I do not recommend this place to anyone if they plan on doing alterations. The alterations department was RUDE, ABRASIVE, and insulting. The manager herself even told my guest, who was interested in the venue to buy her own wedding dress, to shut up and leave. Needless to say, my friend did not shop here. Also, I paid almost $2000 for alterations and material only to have dress malfunctions at my wedding. Very poor quality of service and very poor costumer service. DO NOT COME HERE. BE WARNED!!!!
