The White Orchid was the first and last bridal shop that I went to because of their wonderful selection and even more wonderful staff. Customer service is so important to me, and after working with Patty, I had no doubts about buying my dress from the White Orchid. She was sweet and patient, and pulled dresses that were exactly what I wanted. I actually just purchased a dress last night. It's beautiful, and I am so pleased with the whole experience. I would definitely recommend the White Orchid to any bride-to-be. They have such beautiful gowns, and the pricing is very reasonable. I am so excited about my dress, and so happy with my decision to buy from the White Orchid!!

I am a Georgia girl who has found her way to Pittsburgh. So when it came time to find my wedding dress I was at first very put off by a lot of dress shops in Pittsburgh. I felt pressured everywhere I went and everyone was trying to push me outside of what I wanted both in style AND in price!
My Mother was visiting and our goal was to find my dress before she had to go back to Georgia. It was our last day and our last chance. Thankfully we found ourselves at the White Orchid.
The outside is very unassuming and you can easily miss it if you're not careful. But once you're inside, its not like you've entered a shop but rather someone's home. The ladies who work here are delightful, it was like trying on dresses with family. With their guidance and expertise I was able to find my dream dress!!
After the initial purchase I then returned for the fittings and that experience was also wonderful!
From beginning to end I was so thrilled with The White Orchid! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be treated well and have an excellent selection of dresses to choose from.
Choosing the White Orchid was one of the best decisions I made during my entire wedding planning process!

The gown I chose was the first one I tried on! It was perfect! The staff was all very friendly and helpful. I didn't need many alterations to the dress but Michelle did an excellent job to the alterations I did need. Alterations were not included in the price of the gown. I also got my bridesmaids dresses here. The girls got a 10% discount since I got my gown here as well. I would recommend this place to other soon to be brides:)

The staff at the White Orchid was wonderful. I was the first Bride to have a private party where they shut down the shop for 2 hours and I was able to try on as many dresses as I wanted. They served Sangria, crackers, cheese and fruit. My family and I had a great time. I ended up finding my dream dress that night. It was a Maggie Sottero. I also got my bridesmaids dresses, which were absolutely stunning. I would recommend anyone go to The White Orchid.

I went to eight different bridal stores and was sooo happy that I found the White Orchid. The ladies were wonderful to work with. The sales lady made a suggestion to alter a wedding dress by adding a belt! Completely changed the dress and I fell in love with it! They went above and beyond , allowing me to try on my dress multiple times! The seamstress that fixed my dress did a wonderful, affordable job. I was so happy with the White Orchid!

From day one of showing up at the White Orchid without an appointment (during prom season)to look for a wedding gown... everyone in the boutique was extremely friendly to myself and my mom and my sisters. This was refreshing because we had stopped at another bridal store not far from the White Orchid first and the staff there was extremely rude to us. At the White Orchid, it was completely different. Even though they were busy with other appointments, they didn't turn us away or make us feel unwelcome at all. The ladies working simply asked us if we wouldn't mind taking a look around downstairs for a little while until one of them finished with their appointment and could help us. We did just that and I'm proud to say that I found the gown of my dreams at the White Orchid that very evening!!!

We worked with the owner Barbara who pulled a bunch of dresses for me, one more beautiful than the next. She understood exactly the feeling I was wanting from the dress and was very patient with me (as I am possibly the most indecisive person on Earth). The staff and seamstresses were all lovely to work with as well. There was actually a error that the dress manufacturer made (not the fault of the White Orchid) and the dress shop went out of their way to make sure I had a new dress made and rush shipped to me on time for my wedding day. They were so understanding and accomodating. I would recommend them to any one!
The only name you need to know.
The White Orchid has enjoyed helping brides, maids, moms and flowergirls find just the right dress for 26 years. We also help brides (and grooms) find just the right look for the guys.
