After going to a few places, I ended up back at The White Dress. No other store compared to it! I loved the individual attention I received and the girls are wonderful to work with! Everyone has a smile on their face and really works to make the experience everything it deserves to be. I loved that I had my own space and didn't have to fight for the attention of my consultant, Meg. I would definitely recommend The White Dress!!

The White Dress makes dress shopping a very intimate experience. First of all, all the dresses arent enclosed in garmet bags so it makes it easier to pick out the dresses you like. They give you time to go around and select the dresses you and your party would like to see on. I had a large group of people with me as well and Kristy and her mother accomodated everyone and still make it an intimate experience. You get your own private dressing area so people arent walking by and gawking at you. They also served champagne and other beverages to make the whole process an experience. I did not feel rushed throughout the day, I actually didnt even use all the time they gave you. If you are looking for a one on one personal bridal experience this is the place for you!

I am having a vow renewal type second wedding. Kristy didn't make me explain this or ask questions that made me feel uncomfortable (as many of my friends/family have done despite knowing the circumstances). She was friendly, supportive, helpful, had a good sense of humor, and was a MSU fan! Big selection and they were very patient. I never felt pressured to buy a dress as I did when I was shopping at numerous places for my first dress. She didn't give me a hard time when I told her I wanted my husband to be with me when I decided on the dress and kept in contact with me in between appointments (but not in an annoying, harassing way like past places did). Thank you so much. I will be in soon to try on my dress again with some possible shoe options and pick out accessories!

The White Dress was my last stop on finding the perfect wedding dress for me. I had been to 5 other locations and tried on many other dresses, but all of these did not compare to the service I received at the White Dress. Myself and my family friends had a wonderful time and the best part of it all is I found my perfect dress! The experience I had was exactly what I was hoping for and would recommend this shop to anyone. :)

I had an absolutely wonderful experience at The White Dress. It was more than just shopping for a wedding dress, it was part of the celebration! The attention to detail is incredible - from seeing my name on a welcome sign as soon as I walked through the door to the complimentary champagne to the little pearl bracelets used to identify dresses to try on. There was plenty of time to enjoy trying on as many dresses as I wanted - and there were so many choices! A wonderful place that I would very highly recommend as a first stop for your White Dress search!

I've been to three places to shop for a wedding dress and am so glad I found The White Dress, which is where I ended up buying my dress. The White Dress really knows how to make brides feel special while looking for wedding dresses. I had my own room for my mom and sister to sit in, a little stage surrounded by mirrors, and an extra large private fitting room. Plus, I received extra special attention from the owner, Kristy, who was super patient with me as I tried on tons of wedding dresses. As soon as I said yes to my dress, Kristy brought out champagne for everyone. I love my dress and can't wait to wear it on my wedding day.

I can not express how pleased I was with The White Dress! After visiting many other bridal shops and trying on many dresses I finally found my wedding dress at The White Dress! What made The White Dress different than other bridal boutiques was the exceptional bridal consultants and plethora of different wedding dresses at exceptional prices. My bridal consultant was fantastic! My dress, which is simple & formed fitting, turned into a beautiful simplistic & elegant masterpiece with the accessories she suggested! I am so pleased with this bridal boutique and will suggest my future bridal friends to The White Dress!

I made my first dress hunting appointment at The White Dress in Brighton, and I didn't need to go anywhere else! Not only did they have an awesome selection of beautiful dresses, but the service was AMAZING! I had Meg as my consultant and she was so nice, friendly, and helpful. My family and I had an awesome experience and the staff were very flexible and accommodating to all the people I brought. I never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision, and I had the best time trying on dresses...and finding my perfect one!! I recommend The White Dress to any bride. They also give great deals on bridesmaid dresses and accessories if you purchase your dress from them..how awesome!! Also, I have called about 5 times since with questions or changes and they are always helpful and always ready to get me whatever I need! Love this place!!

The staff at The White Dress was very friendly and professional. I have a shorter engagement and they were very willing to work with me and help me find the perfect dresses that fit my time frame. I would recommend this bridal shop to any bride who wants that perfect experience when shopping for their dress or bridesmaid dresses.

I can't say enough wonderful things about The White Dress! The entire experience was amazing. The boutique is so organized, and the shopping process is brilliant. When you first arrive, you are given a small bag of beaded rings, and they allow you to browse the entire store and "tag" your favorite dresses with the beads. The staff then pulls all of your picks, and they are hung up and waiting for you in your private dressing room when you're ready to try them on. I thought I would be overwhelmed by all of the choices, but the staff completely made me feel at ease (the wine helped!). Kristy was my consultant, and she made the entire process a breeze. She was there every step of the way, from shopping to measuring to ordering. I absolutely love the dress I bought, and I would definitely encourage every bride to check out The White Dress.

Kathy was an amazing host, she was fast and patient with my specific wants and needs. Their dress selection is across the board and the dresses are gorgeous. The most important thing was I was NOT forced to or pressured into buying a dress. This was one of many stores I visited and they were the most hospitable. Definitely would reccommend!!!!!!!

I felt so comfortable at The White Dress from the moment I arrived. I didn't know what to expect and found the staff super knowledgeable, helpful and genuinely interested in what I wanted to find in a wedding dress. The selection was great and I even though I tried on about 10-15 dresses I found the perfect fit for me. They were able to add some bling to make me feel extra special and feminine. I was so please with the cut and the fit. It made me feel like a real bride. I knew it was the one and they did too. I loved coming in for my fittings because I knew it would be private and I would feel comfortable and not be on display. I got my bridesmaid dresses and all my alterations here as well. I even got a little teary eyed when I left and Kristy walked my dress out to my car. I knew that would be the end of my regular visits to TWD but I know I am always welcome back!

If I had to pick one word to describe The White Dress...amazing. Kristy and her staff are wonderful!! They always have a smile on their face and make your experience memorable. The selection of dresses is great; they have something for all shapes, sizes, and styles all at great prices. The rooms are very spacious and cute and did I mention complementary drinks!! Kristy made me feel awesome and special the entire appointment making me feel like I was the only customer there. I would highly recommend The White Dress for a wonderful personal experience.

The White Dress has an amazing selection of dresses for all body shapes and styles. The service is awesome, you have complimentary beverages, they are very attentive to your needs, will bring you many choices and are overall very genuine. I personally bought my dress, my veil, the bridesmaids dresses, the junior bridesmaids dresses, and the flower girl dresses from them. There are so many colors and materials to choose from and they are not cheap looking or cheesy! I love them and will recommend them to any bride. They have made my big day coming up feel stress free. I have also heard they are great in alterations too!

A month before I visited TWD I peeked into the closed store and saw a beautiful mannequin dressed in what appeared to be my dream dress. I knew I had to come back and try on that gown. I have never felt more secure with that decision in my life! Kristy, the store owner could not have been more helpful, accommodating and patient. I had a semi-large group with me and we were not easy to tame. She was friendly, honest, and the best! She truly made me feel like her only customer for the year! The group I was with was able to get involved and pick dresses for me to try on, without a number limit! The dress in the window was the one I purchased! Price was so reasonable for a beautiful gown! Kristy, made sure to make me feel special and not leave out any details! Thanks again! Now I patiently wait for my special gown to be ready for alterations!

I was debating between two dresses in different stores and Kristy couldn't have been more helpful!!! She ordered a swatch of the fabric in (from Canada), let me try on the dress as much as I needed to in order to know if it was the right one, and talked to the designer about specific modifications on the dress.
I went to every (not kidding) dress store from Lansing to Livonia to West Bloomfield to Ann Arbor, and this store would be one of the two stores that I would highly recommend (the other being the store where I got my dress).
I ended up getting a completely different dress from yet another different store, and when I stopped in several weeks after my wedding to return the fabric swatch (at least 6 months after I had last been in), Kristy remembered who I was and I ended up talking to her for a time. She is very personable, easy to work with, and very willing to help in any way she can. I could not more highly recommended any store!

TWD is an awesome place, great service and so much product. I ordered 6 bridesmaid dresses and in January I'm ordering 2 flower girl dresses. Kristy took her time with my group, and we had a fun girls day, they made us feel very welcome. I live about an hour away so that is the only reason why I didn't order my dress there. But great place, can't wait for the girls dresses to come in!!!!

I happily found my veil and all my accessories at The White Dress store. The girl who helped me recommended great options that went with my dress (which I brought with me to see how well the veil and jewelry matched). Several other stores I had visited did not even come close to the selection that The White Dress had in headpieces, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and veils. Also the prices were very reasonable. I had a great experience at their store and I recommend it for brides in the area.

I like to support small businesses - especially Michigan-based, so I was so excited when I found a dress that worked that was a sample sale which allowed me to take the dress to North Carolina (where I am currently living) for my alterations. The system they have set up for trying on dresses was wonderful for my bridal party, mother, and myself. It was fun and not at all stressful. They were not pushy, but purely there to help and make me feel comfortable. I would recommend this place to any bride looking for the "dress shopping experience" with champagne and dressing room and lots of pretty dresses.
