    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!

    Professional, friendly, beautiful gowns to choose from, amazing in-house seamstress

    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 beyond talented.

    Jolyn,

    We love that you shared your experience and that we had a part in making you look and feel beautiful on your wedding day! Our seamstress Penny has been with us 14 years and IS the best! As is Callan and her yummy wedding cakes and cinnamon buns and sweet demeanor and incredible sense of style! Thanks for your kind words!
