The ladies at In White made my wedding dress shopping a truly wonderful experience. I went somewhere else with my whole bridal party and tried different dresses on for over an hour. It started to be discouraging when nothing was sending me. My mother told me that some of her... Read More coworkers were getting their dresses at In White for their weddings. I always drove past the store and thought the dresses looked so beautiful, I would never be able to afford one. My mom and I made an appointment, and I fell in love with the first dress I tried on. Of course I had to try on other dresses, but when I put it back on I knew. The best part was when I looked at the pricetag it was in my price range! Maria is a godsend. She made all of my alterations seem so easy, and every time I came back to put it back on, I loved it more. A few weeks prior to my wedding my mother's zipper on her dress popped. In White was quick to fix my mom's dress, and we do not know what we would have done if they couldn't have fixed it so quickly for us. I loved In White, and recommend it to everyone!!!

In White Bridal was an absolute delight to work with! After only two visits to this salon I felt as though the owner, my consultant, and the seamstress all felt like family.

Absolutely. Amazing. Sherri and her staff were so friendly and so professional from the moment I walked into their salon. We purchased my bridesmaids' dresses there, as well as my second wedding gown. The bridesmaids' dresses were gorgeous, and the seamstresses did an amazing... Read More job fitting them to each girl. My second gown was an oopsie, but a happy one. I saw this dress on a mannequin one day while I was in the shop with some of my bridesmaids, and couldn't stop thinking about it for the next week. Feeling frustrated, I went in a few days later with my mom and asked the girl if it was even possible to get the dress made with only 90 days to go until my wedding. She said absolutely and helped me try it on. I came out in it and felt like I had truly found MY dress. They were very speedy with putting in the order and were always willing to give me as much information as they had when I called (frequently, and often panicked) to check the status of the dress. When it finally came in 2 weeks before my wedding, I was worried the seamstress wouldn't be able to do everything in time - but I was so wrong! Everything was done beautifully and with a few days to spare. I felt absolutely amazing in my dress and my girls looked just as amazing standing by me on my big day!

This was my second bridal salon I visited and my experience was just alright. I arrived for my appointment and waited around for a little bit near the front desk.

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.

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!

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.
