  • My daughter and her sisters and future mother in law all went to see Kelsey try on gowns and what a perfect experience. The room we sat in was private and comfortable.Abby was great with letting Kelsey pick out gowns she wanted to try. The shop manager stopped in a couple of times to see how we were doing and if we needed anything. We were even allowed to take pictures of her in the dresses which some shops do not allow. We had been to two other shops in RHODE ISLAND but the experience could not compare to here. Kelsey said ‘YES’ to her dress here, we were all served champagne and pictures were taken with the YES sign. Couldn’t have been better, Potential buyers beware.....Connecticut charges 7.75% luxury tax on anything over 1000$.

    It was such a pleasure working with Kelsey and your family. She is going to be a stunning bride and her gown is perfect for her Newport wedding! We wish we did not have to charge sales tax...but, we can't dispute the government :). But, if we ship the gown out of state, that tax can be avoided. We appreciate your kind words and are excited to be on this journey with Kelsey!

  • The White Dress by The Shore was absolutely the perfect experience! I had the pleasure of working with Callan, Michelle and Penny (the in house seamstress) made my wedding dress perfect. Originally, I wasn't quite sure what dress to try on, but I was shown a wide variety. Because they suggested trying on multiple, even if I was skeptical of the style, I ended up choosing one I never thought... it was absolutely perfect! Each time I went in for a fitting, Penny made it more and more perfect, so perfect that on my last fitting, I didn't need anything touched up. Penny did an absolutely perfect job with my complicated, lace dress. Callan and Michelle always greeted myself and mother in law with big smiles. They helped me get in and out of my gown and answered all of my questions. On a side note, Callan makes absolutely amazing cinnabuns and hot cider... her food truck is amazing. But regardless, this dress shop is friendly, beautiful, and incredibly professional, their seamstress is beyon... Read more

  • This is a longggg overdue review but I needed the dust to settle after my dream wedding in Newport this June to adequately describe how grateful I am for this dream shop where I found my dream dress. TWD was the first place I went to when looking for a dress. I went with my mom and my sister and two friends. We had no expectations as this was our first time we were looking, as a matter of fact we were quite sure I was not going to purchase a dress that day! When you first step into the TWD you are treated like a queen and it was the first time that I felt like sh*t was getting real! Our stylist was Callan and I gave her a few examples of what I was thinking for my dress and she pulled a few gems. By the end of the appointment I had two dresses I loved! I loved the bottom of one but the top of the other and so right then and there my dream dress was created- callan immediately was like well we can make this! I shortly had both dresses on and our vision was made! I had a few anxious... Read more

  • When I stepped into the White Dress By The Shore boutique, I knew it was the place I was going to find my dream gown. Every single gown on the rack was just dreamy. Callan was my bridal stylist. I felt so lucky that she had an amazing style so similar to my own. We shared a love for bows too! I just adored her. After trying on a few dresses, she introduced the idea of customizing my gown. I never imagined that would have even been an option, but loved the idea that I could make a wedding dress with the exact fabric, neckline, and bow, and skirt that I wanted. Not only did they help me customize the dress, but they also helped me customize my bridesmaids' Lula Kate dresses. And when it came time for alterations, I worked with Penny. They described her as a magical fairy, and what they said was true. At each fitting she made sure every little detail of my gown was just perfect. Thank you so much to the entire White Dress By The Shore team for making my wedding dress (and bridesmaid dres... Read more

  • I purchased both my wedding dress as well as my bridesmaids dresses at The White Dress By the Shore. To say that my experience from start to finish was exceptional is an understatement. If I could give The White Dress 10 stars I would in a heartbeat. They truly helped me and guided me into finding my dream Hailey Paige gown. They also assisted me in completing my look with a stunning veil, hair piece, and earrings. The ordering and alterations process was perfect and seamless! When it came to bridesmaids dresses, Lauren was beyond helpful. I was incredibly indecisive, and she truly helped me choose the perfect Jenny Yoo gowns in the most gorgeous beige/cream color for my maids. All of my bridesmaids looked flawless, and ordering their gowns was a breeze, even when many were ordering from out of state. I cannot thank Lauren and The White Dress by the Shore enough. Each time I came to the store, I was treated as if I was their only bride. I would recommend The White Dress to any a... Read more

  • I had such an incredible experience shopping for my wedding dress at The White Dress by the Shore. My experience felt like something you see in a movie, and quite honestly, I did not know such experiences actually exist in real life! I had shopped at other bridal stores for my wedding dress prior to my appointment at The White Dress, and my experience there stood out by a landslide. The owner of the shop, Beth, worked with my mom, my 3 friends and me on the day of my appointment. We were greeted with champagne, our own private room and attitudes from all the employees that made you feel like you were the most important bride on the planet. It is so clear that Beth cares about all of her customers and works tirelessly to ensure that brides and their company have the perfect experience. Not to mention, her collections are all beautiful! I highly recommend the White Dress to any bride who is looking for the perfect dress and the perfect, memorable experience.

    Nicole, thank you so much for sharing your experience. Our goal is to make every bride who shops with us look, and feel beautiful. We are so very pleased that we not only met, but exceeded that expectation with you. It is our absolute honor to dress you for your wedding!

  • The White Dress is where I both started and began my dress search, and I am so happy I did! I visited The White Dress to try on a particular style of dress, but upon realizing it was not what I hoped for, Beth and her wonderful staff helped me to find a dress that fit like a glove - and one I never would expected I would "like myself" in. They encouraged, yet never pressured, me to branch out and try on new styles. I am a bit indecisive, so I visited two other stores before eventually returning back to the White Dress and getting the dress of my dreams! Their service is unparalleled and they make you feel the excitement of being a bride every time you visit (which ended up being a total of SIX times between try ons and later alterations). Thank you to the ladies at The White Dress (especially Beth and Melissa) for helping to make me feel absolutely gorgeous on my wedding day!

    Heather, we are beaming with pride! It was such an absolute pleasure working with you. You are beautiful inside and out and that shines through beautifully in your images. Thank you for trusting us with such an important part of your wedding day. It was truly our pleasure! Xoxo, The TWD Lovelies

  • This shop is adorable! I gasped when I stepped in: it's a bridal dream, cozy and chic at once. I love that The White Dress adheres to a more modern business model than other bridal shops in the state. They are very active on social media, they follow the latest trends, and they hold trunk shows regularly. I visited the shop last fall for a Hayley Paige trunk show. My consultant, Shana, was so enthusiastic, professional, and fun to work with. She listened to exactly what I wanted as far as budget, style, and fit. She helped me to work out what I liked and disliked about each dress I tried. She also graciously laughed along with me and my loud family. Shana even sent me a card in the mail following my shopping experience. I think this store is ideal for the discerning bride who wants a personal experience. The White Dress is the only bridal shop I visited where I was able to walk through and pick out dresses I wanted to try on. My experience was all about what I was looking for in... Read more

    We wish you could have bought from 2 stores as well! Thank you for sharing your special experience with the world! We strive to provide an outstanding level of service to each and every bride, and we are thrilled that our goal was met with you.

Best of luck with the wedding!
