    The best wedding dress experience, hands down!

    Michelle and everyone at White Dress by the Shore were amazing. I had no idea about what I was walking into as it was my very first dress appointment but Michelle made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. I was really vague about what I was looking for but she took the small information I offered and pulled dresses that captured my vision better than I ever could have described myself. She was also so mindful of budget and was not pushy at all. I ended up finding my absolute dream dress (plus veil and gorgeous jewelry) and could not be more excited or more pleased with my experience. I was actually sad that it was over because it was such a special time. You need to go to this here for your dress, you won鈥檛 regret it!

    The White Dress by the shore's reply:

    Erin, thank you so much for sharing your experience! What you described is our goal with every bride who visits, so we are so pleased that we achieved our goal with you. It is our honor to dress you and assist you every step of the way on your wedding journey! xo, TWD
