  • 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

  • It was such a pleasure being able to work with Kelsey to help me and my mom find my dream dress. Kelsey made the experience so relaxed and comfortable and she was very patient as I tried on all sorts of dresses. She really made the process as stress-free as possible. My mom and I were lucky to be able to return for a second look before ultimately finding my dream dress. Kelsey was so thoughtful and saved my dress so I could try it on one last time before making a final decision. Beth was there when I picked up my gown and she also a pleasure to get to know and so friendly. My mom and I have been raving about our local wedding boutique and have recommended it to anyone who is looking for a great experience with wedding dress shopping! Thank you Kelsey and everyone at The White Dress for your grace, professionalism, and expertise and making this indecisive bride so comfortable and confident with her beautiful gown :)

  • 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

  • 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

  • First off, this shop is quite literally the cutest thing I have ever seen, in the cutest town I have ever seen. First impression was amazing! So I am a plus-size bride, and I had shopped at one other store before coming to TWD. I didn't have a great experience, centering on the fact that I was plus size. Because of this, I was a little nervous for shopping at TWD and I was full of all the opposite feelings I should have had when shopping for my dream wedding dress. The minute I was introduced to Alyson, my consultant, all those negative feelings literally went out the door! What a sweetheart she is. I never once felt judged for not being thin, or not fitting into the samples, or anything. She made me feel so comfortable, like she had been my friend for years, which was amazing considering I had to go to my appointment alone because of COVID (my mom and bridesmaids live in other states, and it just wasn't possible to get anyone together during the pandemic). She was so supportive... Read more

    Breanna, thank you so much for your kinds words about Alyson and our staff! Our goal is to help every bride look and feel beautiful in their gown and we are so pleased that we achieved that with you. We are sorry about the miscommunication about touchless pick up. We offer this as an option for our clients that would rather not enter the store and interact with someone. If a bride selects touchless pick up, we have brides call us when they are close by and we place the gown on the hook that is hidden at the back of the store 5 minutes before the bride arrives. Apparently, we had a pre-set time with you, which is why the associate placed the gown outside moments before you arrived. Your feedback will help us to fine tune this new and unchartered process to ensure that we fully communicate what it means to have a touchless pick up so that our brides expectations are met. The care and safety of your and your gown always have been and will continue to be a top priority for us!

  • 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.
