I recently found my dress at The White Dress and couldn't be more excited to wear in on my wedding day! The White Dress was the very first place I looked, so I wasn't exactly expecting to find my dress there. I had no idea really what I was looking for at that point. My bridal...

After learning my style, she was able to put together a combo that met what I was looking for and made me feel beautiful and happy! Not wanting to choose too quickly, I left to check out a few more places, but was drawn back that night to commit to the dress Krystle helped picked out! She's a pro and really knows how to listen to the bride and figure out what dress will make them feel best! Thank you, Krystle for all your help! Additionally, the intimate and classy environment the White Dress provides is great!

I had the most amazing experience at the White Dress. When I first walked in you were greeted and felt so welcomed. I was nervous about dress shopping until I walked through the doors and talked to the amazing women working there. The biggest reason that I felt so welcomed was...

I didn't just feel like she was selling me a dress she got to know me as a person while doing it as well. I would recommend not only the White Dress to everyone, but I would recommend that they ask for Krystle personally. She is amazing at what she does.

I had the pleasure to have the owner, Amanda, as my consultant. Every step of the process was amazing and I couldn't be happier! 1) The location, ambiance, and private rooms are simply stunning. It was great to try on dresses in your own private room instead of walking out in... Read More front of a room of strangers. 2) I loved that there were dresses in all price ranges so that even if you didn't have the big budget, you could still get that "big budget" experience. Plus, Amanda put a few dresses in my room prior to my appointment that she thought I might like. I think I actually picked one of those dresses! 3) Most importantly, the people are amazing. From the very first phone call though picking up my dress, I only have the best words. Amanda was not only amazing for my first visit and my visit to pick up my dress, but she also remembered me when I saw her at a wedding show! The customer service is by far the best I've experienced. I highly recommend going to The White Dress for that perfect bridal experience that you won't get anywhere else! (did I mention you get to sip champagne during your appointment?!)

The salon was beautiful, but the experience I had there was just not what I expected. My consultant was very pushy and gave me a really hard sales pitch even when I was clear that I was not ready to buy. They don't allow you to take any pictures, which really sucks. It meant I... Read More couldn't properly look at the back of the dresses or see how they photographed. It also meant that I couldn't look back at the dresses after I left and remember what I liked about each one. In the end I think that is a mistake on their part. When I did buy my dress, it was partially because I just kept looking at the pictures over and over again and fell in love with the way it looked on me! I bought my dress at Ania Bridal, where the consultant was extremely sweet. There was no pressure, we could take all the pictures we wanted, and they seemed so genuinely happy for me. At The White Dress I just felt like another customer. The White Dress was a very pretty salon with lots of beautiful dresses, but the atmosphere was quite stuffy and there is a lot of pressure on you to buy the dress that day. I wouldn't recommend it.

I had an amazing and easy experience at The White Dress because of Kelly, an amazing bridal stylist. We arrived at the same time as a lot of big groups so it was a bit chaotic (I just had three people including my mom--I don't need 11 opinions!), but we were offered champagne... Read More promptly and greeted by Kelly within about 10 minutes of our appointment time. I had a few ideas of what I didn't want, and a budget, but that was about it. I didn't think I would actually buy a dress that day, but figured I would look to get an idea of what looked good on me. My friends, mom and I pulled a few things we liked and gave Kelly free rein to pick whatever she thought would look good on me. Within just a couple of dresses Kelly had figured out what I liked and didn't like, and pulled a few more. The seventh or so dress I tried on (one she picked that I never would have pulled for myself) was the absolute perfect dress that brought my best friend to tears. Because it was our first appointment we got 15% off which was a huge help. She made the payment process quick and easy and answered all my new-bride questions with patience and excitement. What a huge asset The White Dress has in Kelly. The only thing we thought was odd is that you can't take pictures of the dresses until you've committed to one, then you can take pictures of that one. It wasn't a huge issue for us, but would be tricky if you were hoping to go home and think about the options. Overall I would recommend any bride go to The White Dress--it is such a fun and unique experience. And I would absolutely recommend Kelly!!

My expectations were completely blown away and was so impressed with the delightful, friendly and caring service that myself and my two best friends received from Krystle, my bridal stylist. I️ went in a little nervous after reading some of the reviews written by other brides,... Read More but could not express enough how my experience was so different and so special. We thought the dresses were all gorgeous, the samples are expected to be imperfect as they get tried on several times a day by all body sizes... even still the samples I️ tried on were still so beautiful. I️ reference this because I️ had read a review that the dresses were damaged and dirty — that was not what I️ experienced at all. They were very clean with very minimal wear. Krystle, my stylist knew exactly how to guide my journey on this overwhelming feat of trying on wedding dresses when I had no idea what style of dress I️ wanted. I️ loved how the dresses were separated by style on the racks, it made it so easy to find the dresses that I️ wanted to try on. She really listened to me and heard what I️ wanted. She also listened to my friends, which was important to me. We were welcomed with champagne and cared for throughout the experience. I️ found my dress, not expecting to and loved that they offered the 15% off discount if you find a dress on the same day as your appointment. They gave me a folder to keep all of the info and paperwork together in and they gave me an adorable present before leaving, a sweet little white tank that says “I️ do” in gold foil. They pay attention to detail and they made me feel authentically beautiful. Thank you.

I was super excited about this place. I made it my first appointment of the day. As soon as we walk in I felt like we didn't fit in. We weren't welcomed with the love and kindness I expected. My wedding Bridget is 12,000 but my dress budget is only 1,500. Kelly helped us and... Read More basically shut us out after I told her our budget. She told us that it was going to be hard to find a dress within our budget, which I thought was fair for a dress I'd only wear once. I tried on several dresses and when my crew would ask questions she would snip back with a snotty response. She didn't fluff out my dresses or talk about dresses at all. If a dress we picked was out of my price range she would just go put it back on the shelf. If she didn't think I'd like a dress she would go out it back without me trying it on. We spent barely an hour in there. I felt like I got pushed out because I wasn't going to spend 5,000 on a dress. Some of the dresses were very dirty. I felt like I was rushed out and ignored. Which is sad because I ended up doubling my budget buying my dress at a different place from someone who actually wanted to sell me the most important dress of my life. Very disappointed at the service I received. If you have a smaller budget, I wouldn't recommend coming here.

My experience with The White Dress was not ideal. It was the 2nd shop my girlfriends and I visited to find a gown for my wedding. It was a holiday weekend, while the store was running a promotional sale. We tried on several dresses, one of which I absolutely loved with a couple... Read More caveats - I wanted sleeves and a lower vneck. The sales associate assured me - without a doubt - that the store's preferred alterations vendor Custom Fit for You could make that happen. When the girls and I said we had a couple other appointments and that we'd be back, the sales associate told me that if we left the store - regardless of the fact that the sale was going on all weekend - the sale price would not be valid to me. She lingered and pressed for some time, well beyond what we thought was appropriate. Given her confidence that the alterations could be done, I buckled and got the dress. I was also told the dress would arrive in several months. As that date got closer, I emailed the sales associate to plan a trip down to Portland from Seattle, where I lived, to pick it up. She said it had already arrived and I had a very short window to pick it up. I received no call or email to let me know it had already arrived. She reiterated that the store could not hold my dress any longer and that I had to come in. I made a special trip to Portland from Seattle, weeks before the dress was supposed to arrive, to pick it up. She made a few comments about how this was an "unusual" situation, making me feel terrible for putting anyone out of their way. And finally, when I took the dress in for alterations, I was told that the assurances I received at The White Dress were bogus. All of the alterations the sales associate had assured me could be done, could not. Not to mention the alterations vendor the store recommended was very unprofessional, not clean and did a poor job. All in all, I was incredibly disappointed in this process, as it absolutely put a damper on the wedding planning experience. The White Dress has great gowns, but I would not recommend it to my friends or family given the string of events mentioned above.
