I recently found my dress at A little Something White in Darien, CT. From start to finish I had a terrific experience. The store is absolutely adorable and the staff are super sweet. I had the privilege to have Kim as my bridal consultant. Her genuine, honest, and friendly... Read More personality put me, my mom, and my aunt at ease. Each dress she chose was gorgeous and I had a hard time choosing. But, we ended up finding the perfect one for me!!! I couldn't be happier to have finally found my gown at A little Something White. I highly recommend this place to any bride that wants a calm and fulfilling experience.

I don't have enough positive words to describe my wonderful experience with A Little Something White and Ashley, the owner. ALSW is truly special: the boutique is super charming and the people working there are more than welcoming and nice - I feel that's exactly how shopping... Read More for your wedding dress should be like and I wouldn't change a thing. Before finding my dress at ALSW, I visited a lot of stores in NYC and I'm 100% sure that none of them would offer the same treatment that I received at ALSW, nor have the same vibe. It was truly an experience. Before visiting them for the first, I was almost deciding for a different dress, something that I've shared with them. But then I saw my dress at ALSW and everything changed... I was never pressured to choose their dress - Ashley even made compliments on the other dress when I shared my doubts. I spent a week trying to decide... And I remember thinking that maybe it would be harder to give up the experience of buying my dress at ALSW than the dress itself!!! Many months later, when the dress finally arrived, all the way from Israel, there were some things that I wasn't happy about (all because I decided to change some details on the original dress when I made my order). And I thought that nothing could be done about it, since the dress came from such a long distance and we only had 2 more weeks before I had to leave for my wedding. BUT nothing is impossible to Ashley: she contacted the designer and had extra fabric and lace delivered in a WEEK - from Israel to CT. How impressive is that?! I still can't believe it. She even called the FedEx guy and made him come back on the same day when the first delivery attempt failed - something they don't usually do. Like I said: you wouldn't get this type of treatment anywhere else! The alterations were made very fast and they did everything possible to accommodate all my appointments in such a little time. My dress looks perfect and I couldn't be happier! I don't usually write reviews, but I loved ALSW so much that I just have to. My family doesn't live in the US, so buying my wedding dress alone was a daunting thought. Ashley made it easier than I expected and special! I truly recommend ALSW to all brides out there and I hope they also fall in love with a dress there too... I'm sure only good things will follow! :)

Literally the BEST experience. Kim was amazing and totally knew what I was looking for. She- and Ashley- made the process so easy. My mother and I could not have been happier.

I'm not big on having all eyes on me so I was slightly dreading dress shopping but Kim made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole experience. She listened to my likes and dislikes and knew exactly which dresses to show me, while staying entirely within the budget... Read More we gave her. While I did fall in love with a dress that day, since it had been my first shopping trip I was uneasy with immediately purchasing. However, nobody tried to push us into a purchase, Kim simply said to let her know if we found anything else we liked elsewhere. After trying another salon that week and again finding the dress I originally loved, we returned to A Little Something White the following weekend to buy the dress from them. The customer service here is top notch and you'll feel truly special while they help make your wedding dreams come true.

The experience here was truly incredible. I was a little concerned about dress shopping given that I'm not a huge fan of shopping in general, but Amber was so helpful and knowledgeable. I loved how she let my family pick a few dresses and then took it from there. It made it fun,... Read More but still productive. The space was comfortable, clean, pretty and easily accommodated the 8 people I had with me. I had a corner of the salon to myself with its own dressing room and mirror which added to the pleasant experience. The dress selection was plentiful, but with Amber's help we were all in tears by the fifth or sixth one (happy tears). I never thought that moment was really something that happened outside of tv shows, but I was wrong. We all had so much fun- I really can't say enough good things. Thank you so much, Amber and team!

I bought my (stunning) wedding gown, removable lace top for church, and veil at ALSW. They custom designed my veil for me with the designer, and it came out perfect. They also have an unbelievable estate/vintage/antique jewelry/accessory collection, from which I bought a... Read More gorgeous pair of 1940’s clip-on earrings, which ALSW sent out to get posted for me. We also went back to ALSW for our bridesmaids’ dresses. Everything in the shop is beautiful and high-end from top to bottom, they offer a variety of price points, and the staff is incredibly patient and kind. We first looked at dresses with Amber, and she took the time to really get to know what I thought I wanted. She let us pull dresses to try on, and she also made recommendations both within the realm of what I thought I wanted, but also by throwing in some different types of dresses that she thought I might be interested in based on what I was describing. This was great because I ended up picking out something Amber suggested! The shop was extremely accommodating when one of my bridesmaids unexpectedly got pregnant after she had ordered her dress. They were incredibly reasonable in helping her to order a new dress at cost. We had a couple of items that we ordered arrive either incorrect or damaged from the designer (all the designer’s mistake), and ALSW made sure they got everything fixed and taken care of prior to my first fitting (they even drove to meet a UPS truck that had a part of my dress on it before my fitting!). Their seamstress is incredibly talented and did a phenomenal job at listening to my every request/concern about the fit of the dress. Right now, I am getting my dress preserved with ALSW! My only suggestion would be to ask when you schedule your appointments for a non-busy time. I found that when they were busy, it was tough to feel like you had all of your consultant’s attention on you. I also felt on two occasions like brides who were shopping for dresses were sort of “on top of us.” Since this is such an important, once-in-a-lifetime experience, often in which you bring your family with you, that made the experience feel a little less intimate. But all-in-all I would 100% highly recommend ALSW. My wedding day look was perfection!

I booked an appointment here on a whim as they were one of the few bridal boutiques in the area with a particular designer I was interested in. Ashley was able to squeeze me in on a Saturday of the same week and I am forever grateful. I worked with Amber who was my very own... Read More "bride whisperer" - I had tried on 26 dresses by this appointment and was getting antsy that I would never find the one! Unlike many of the bridal salons I had visited, Amber let me pull some dresses that I saw and liked and it was highly appreciated the prices were listed so I could stay within my budget (this is also the only place who didn't pull me anything outside of my budget - thank you!). During my appointment I tried on 9 dresses and I loved nearly half of them - a feeling I didn't get with any of the previous 25. Amber helped take my inspiration photos and pair it with her bridal knowledge to pull a dress that took into account all of the details I was looking for but with a bodice and dress shape that suited my body type perfectly. I felt beautiful in dress after dress and it felt like a special experience rather than a dress factory. I purchased the dress of my dreams and highly recommend A Little Something White! Looking forward to the big day and this experience has been the highlight of wedding planning thus far.

Her attention to detail and expertise was impressive. I felt like she treated me the same way she would treat her own daughter - wanting nothing but the best. Two days before my wedding when I went to pick up my dress and I was devastated that the weather had taken a turn for our big day, she talked to me with such care and recommended I rent a fur shrug from ALSW and I am so glad I did.
