I absolutely LOVED all of my experiences at In White! I traveled from Pittsburgh to get my dress and alterations from their salon and it was worth every extra mile. Shari does a great job with making every bride to be feel special even when her salon is full with tons of brides... Read More at once. Maria did an amazing job on all of my alterations. I am a petite girl and had to get a lot of alterations to my dress and Maria fulfilled all of my expectations to make my dress look even more perfect! Maly is a natural professional at her job. I told Maly that I thought the dress that she had suggested was "HIDEOUS" but she still encouraged me to try it on anyways. I tried it on and I actually ended up falling in love with the dress and wore it on my wedding day:) Without Maly's suggestion and never ending help, I would have not been able to wear, what I know now, was my dream wedding dress 👰🏼 I also loved how they make the bride and guests feel very special by making it a big occasion to try on the dresses with some tasty wine 🍷 I wish I could give an extra star to In White because they deserve it!

There's no doubt about it - In White Bridal is where you want to go for your wedding dress!

We did a girls night out also to find my bridesmaid’s dresses and had an absolute blast!! Maria and Carmen did the alterations for me and most of my girls and some hand beading on my dress, they all turned out perfectly! Anytime I am in Lancaster, I love to stop in and say hi. Anyone that I know looking for dresses I send to In White!!!

I was very excited for my consultation at In White, but I was sadly disappointed in my experience. For my consultation, I was accompanied by my mother, mother of the groom & maid of honor. When we arrived, the woman at the front desk gave me tags to start tagging dresses. When... Read More we were finished, we waited for someone to tell us we could go back to the fitting room area. A woman, who would be my bridal consultant, kept walking past us (I think she was pulling dresses). She eventually told us quite curtly we could go back. We went back to the fitting room area & we waited. Next thing I know, the bridal consultant was standing at the fitting room curtain & announced that “she was ready” – NO greeting whatsoever. I was quite surprised & caught off guard. She did not ask me what my name was or who my guests were. She didn’t even introduce herself to me – I had to ask HER what her name was! Throughout the entire consultation, she seemed aloof & very short. Quite frankly, she seemed like she was just trying to get me “in and out" and that I was wasting her time. Finding your wedding dress is supposed to be a fun, enjoyable, POSITIVE experience & my experience at In White was not. It’s a shame because they did have a beautiful selection of quality gowns, and you’d think that their level of service would match their product.

My experience with In White was nothing but wonderful!

As a plus size bride, I was nervous that I wouldn't feel pretty... Read More or feel secure in my dress, but that wasn't the case at all. Not only did they help me find a dress I love, they were great with alterations and making sure I felt as if I wasn't going to be falling out of my strapless dress throughout my wedding. They were patient and kind, even when I was at the height of my wedding planning stress. Being plus size, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to try on a lot of dresses and different styles. Even if the sample wasn't my size, they did their best to clip and strap me in so I could get an idea of how the dress in my actual size would look. I can't give enough praise to In White!

My sisters and I purchased bridesmaid dresses, and my mother a mother of the groom dress; it seems like a really professional place but all in all, it's not. I had three separate fittings for my dress, which was absolutely tedious considering it's a three hour drive there for... Read More me. When I came for my last fitting (the day before the wedding mind you), there was a large hole in the side of my dress where the seamstress hadn't finished the alterations. Through the night of the wedding the stitch used to tack the top of my dress for some modesty, began to fray and pull the material making the top look odd. Also my sister's dress was visibly sewn crooked when they took it in by the zipper; about 1/2 an inch off on either side. They were also still steaming my mother's dress when we arrived for our fittings on time. To avoid missing rehersal we had to leave 3 of the 4 dresses, to be hopefully completed by the morning of the wedding. When we asked about pick up time for them, they said they didn't open until 12:00pm. We told them that time was unacceptable since we'd all be getting ready for pictures at that point and that we needed them by 8:00am, we received an attitude about it. While the dresses were completed correctly by 8:00am it seems they overwork their seamstresses, and don't offer clear communication. It's more a management and timing issue then an alterations department problem. Most of the staff seem pretty inept with their computer system too. I had five visits over 8 months, the intial puurchase, 3 fittings, and a pick-up. . . and anytime they needed to ring us up for something the girl would tell us, "Sorry, we just changed systems and it's still new!" We'd be sitting there for 10 minutes watching her click through screens. The first two times, sure? But really in 8 months you can't pick it up? Also the alterations pricing for mother's dresses is ridiculous. My mother was charged about $100 more for the same or even less alterations than my bridesmaids dress, just because it was a mothers dress! How can a store even get away with that? The dress was no more complicated than a bridesmaid dress to alter? Unless you just need them to order you a dress and do nothing else, take your money elsewhere.

I purchased my bridesmaid, mother of the bride, and mother of the groom dresses here and while my dresses turned out wonderful there were some minor issues in communication with staff. Upon our initial visit our consultant told my mother her selected dress could come in a... Read More specific color but once we were about to pay she noted that it actually did not come in that color but a lighter shade which we did not want. We then found a dress that was essentially the exact same that came in the color but were forced to make another trip to the store to find this. Also, when my husband's mother went to pick up her dress for our wedding they had not altered her dress at all since her fitting. They altered another dress that she purchased through them instead for another wedding that was two months away after she repeatedly noted which dress was to be altered upon pick up.. The dresses however arrived in a quick period of time and were absolutely gorgeous. The store held onto the dresses until my bridesmaids could find time for multiple alteration appointments and to pick them up free of charge. Overall my experience was great in that the dresses for everybody were beautiful and fit perfectly. I would recommend this store if you are need very little staff assistance and know exactly what you want but if you require a lot of help to pick and decide on gowns there may be some communication issues with staff.

My experience at In White was wonderful! When I first arrived at In White, I thought I'd already found my dress at another bridal shop.

After seeing that I wasn't liking the dresses I pulled, Shari picked a few for me to try, and that's when I found my dress!

I ended up buying mine off the rack at In White, which with the 10% discount, helped me stay under my budget of $1.000. And did I mention the dress was gorgeous?! Since I bought off the rack, it needed a good bit of alterations. The seamstress, Maria, did a wonderful job and it fit perfectly on my wedding day. I'd highly recommend In White to any bride!!!

I would recommend In White for purchasing a bridal gown. They were very friendly and reasonably priced for the quality of dress. However, I would not recommend their alteration service. I bought my dress close to 1 year before my wedding, and they suggested starting... Read More alterations about 2 months before my wedding. I live out of town and was forced to add an additional appointment because my alterations were not completed on time.

The manager helped to fix this, but this caused significant stress 2 weeks prior to my wedding when the dress should have been completed at that time.
