You MUST get your dress here!!! It is an amazing little shop with dresses of every style! They have bridesmaid dresses too. I had my own personal appointment so all focus was on me which made me feel so special. I was never rushed and was able to try on so many different... Read More dresses. We started with a few that I thought I liked and then after they took my feedback and gave me different dresses to try on. I found the most amazing dress!! Afterwards they were so great, always followed up, let me know when my dress was in and that my fittings were perfectly scheduled. Wouldn't go anywhere else!!

I could talk about how amazing A Little Something White Bridal Couture is all day. My original plan was to find a wedding stress in New York City (where I live and work) since I figured the best selection had to be there and it would be easy to go to fittings during my lunch... Read More break. I got married in Westchester so I also decided to take a drive over to this store one weekend to "pre-shop" before I hit the Manhattan stores. I am so glad that I ended up coming here first. I worked with Amber who had me try on about 30 dresses. All of the dresses I tried on that day were so beautiful and the selection was incredible. After falling in love with the first dress I put on, I came back with my Dad a week later and officially "said yes" to a Mira Zwillinger A-Line gown. The store itself is beautiful, amazing lighting and so clean/organized. The level of attention that you get here is above all else. There are generally only 1-2 brides in the store at the same time as you. Scheduling the fittings was also really easy and the seamstress who worked on my dress had been doing this for about 20 years with a lot of institutional knowledge of the industry. I highly recommend ALSW for that extra personal touch and gorgeous selection of gowns.

A little something white felt like a wedding dress factory, they were trying to just push as many brides through their as possible. My sales person was late (I had an appt 1 month in advance) extremely rushed, and was no help at all in terms of suggesting bridal styles. The... Read More inventory at a little something white is also VERY slim. While looking through the racks (which I had to do myself because my sales person was too busy) I didn’t see many different types of options. If you like illusion though, you’d probably find what you want. I would suggest going somewhere more local if you are looking for the experience because a little something white did not provide that at all. And when your mother and friends are uncomfortable too, it just ruins the entire day.

This was one of my favorite experiences of the whole wedding process. I had tried on a few dresses at 1 or 2 other stores in NYC, where I live and work, but am SO glad I came to ALSW for my dress.

I grew up in Connecticut but live out of state. I chose to go dress shopping in Connecticut first, so that I could include my mom, grandmother, and sister that still live there. I went to A Little Something White and found a dress I absolutely loved! I worked with Kim and she... Read More was great with pulling dresses based on my style until I found the perfect one!! I was a little unsure about ordering the dress to ship to my house in another state, because I wouldn't be able to make the trip up to Connecticut for my alterations. Kim assured me that the office could provide me a list of seamstresses in my area that they trust. I was sold and ended up buying the dress. At the time of purchase I was told that I would be sent a list of seamstresses soon after. I reached out to the store 4 months after buying the dress asking for the list so that I could start calling around. At this time Kim told me that the store owner would look into it for me. 4 months after that I contacted Kim again since I still did not receive a list. I was told that she would go to the store that day and look for me. Again, I did not hear back. At this point my dress had come in. I asked another office manager about getting a list and was told that she contacted the owner, Ashley. After another two weeks of trying to get the list I contacted Ashley directly who apologized and said she would touch base with me in a few days. This was almost TWO MONTHS ago. I still have not received a list and have since taken matters into my own hands and found a seamstress in my area on my own since my wedding is in two months. I am incredibly disappointed with the level of service provided by A Little Something White. After spending thousands of dollars on my wedding dress and hair piece from them, I found them to be unreliable and unorganized. I would NOT recommend them to any current or future brides. While their dress selections are beautiful the management of the business was very poor.

This was such a wonderful place to look at wedding gowns. The experience was great and was even provided with champagne for the first dress I tried on Since I was with a group of people. I emailed the manager with some questions after I left and she got back to me right away!!

This was my first stop to look for a wedding dress. I came here with my mom and sister. I had a few places lined up, but this was my first appointment, and I am so happy it was!! First of all, it's in a beautiful location, right off the highway, and the building is so cute! The... Read More moment we walked in we were greeted by the nicest receptionist and offered champagne. Liz was the person who assisted me that day. She was beyond amazing to us! We clicked so easily and she made me feel so comfortable. It was so easy to talk to her and work with her; she made the whole process so much fun too! I’m not going to ramble on because I tend to do that a lot .. But long story short, the first dress I tried on was the one I chose! It was like they picked my brain and designed a dress just the way I envisioned it before I even got there. I came out to show my mom and sister and we were all in tears. I know some people aren't that lucky, and believe me I am the most indecisive person on the planet, but it was perfect. I tried on other dresses after but always came back to the first one. They have an incredible collection of gowns! Sareh Nouri, the designer of the dress was also there. She was having a trunk show at A Little Something White, which I had no idea, but I was very lucky I was able to meet the mastermind who created the most beautiful dress!! She even worked with us a little and helped with the veil style. I felt like I was in a movie! It was an unforgettable day. I am so happy and I cannot stop thinking about the dress and I can’t wait to go back there to try it on again and pick out accessories! If you are a bride to be, please go to A Little Something White, it will be the best decision you make and I guarantee you’ll find your dream dress like I did! 

My daughter selected a beautiful Sareh Nouri dress during our first visit to ALSW and the champagne flowed! Sadly, the alteration process was a nightmare culminating in tears on the designated pickup day a week before the wedding. During the initial visit we asked the sales... Read More rep to call Sareh Nouri's store because we disagreed with her size recommendation. Sareh Nouri agreed with us that smaller was better. The fitting process went downhill from there and is not the happy memory that Ashley, the owner, advertises. I even called mid alteration process to express concerns - the seamstress never used a yardstick to measure the hem from the floor up and she told us how difficult it was to hem a circle. I was assured that the seamstress was the best in the state of CT. Ashley later told me she wished that she had known about my call. To their credit, ALSW is transparent about the average alteration price range of $600 to $800. The seamstress (Bridget) told us it would probably be less because the alterations were not major - hem the lace and lining, add two buttons for the bustle, take in the bodice slightly, and adjust the straps. When we arrived the Sunday before the wedding to pick up the dress, the hem of the skirt lining was uneven and had a jagged rough cut, the lace overlay hung above the lining in places, there was a bulge in the bodice noticeable in the wedding pictures, and the bustle was uneven. First, they told us we would have to return which was not possible so they summoned Bridget who arrived about an hour later with her sewing machine and magnifying lens. She attempted to fix the uneven hem and told me I had a good eye when I identified the cause of the uneven bustle - one button was an inch lower than the other. It appeared that she had fixed the bulge in the bodice but it reared its ugly head the day of the wedding! When it was time to pay ALSW for the alterations, I asked for a discount and was surprised that the store associate told me I would have to negotiate directly with the seamstress even though ALSW provides the seamstress and promotes her as the best in the state! I politely declined so they called Ashley, the owner. They returned with an offer of $600 which in my view was not a discount. But my daughter and I were emotionally exhausted after nearly four hours, and she and her fiancee needed to drive back to Boston. So I figured I would contact the owner later. Unfortunately, I signed their agreement in essence saying I was satisfied with the dress, and therefore limiting my recourse. When I exchanged several e-mails with Ashley to try to get a 'real' discount, her solution was for me to drive back to meet with the seamstress. Then she offered me a discount on their $400 dress cleaning service which I was not even getting. In my opinion, ALSW's primary focus is on their bottom line and not customer satisfaction. I should have read Ashley's bio which notes that she worked in investment banking. I did too and her margin on alterations requires perfection! So BUYER BEWARE and have your dress altered elsewhere!

I had a wonderful time picking out my gown from ASW; however, the alterations process was a nightmare. At each fitting, my seamstress seemed to not remember what we had done in the previous fitting and when I came to pick up the gown (5 days before my wedding...) the hem was...
