    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!

    Everyone at the shop was incredibly nice and helpful. I felt like they gave me plenty of time and attention trying on many dresses. I didn’t feel rushed at all. I was very comfortable and felt great through the whole process.

    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 and every bride! They truly have the most exquisite selection of gowns, and impeccable service. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making my wedding dress experience so wonderful and so memorable. I will forever remember the day I chose my dress.
