Thank you for choosing The White Dress by the shore. We are thrilled to be a part of your special day. We are confident that you will be pleased with the quality and workmanship of your selection. In order for us to process your order, we need you to understand, agree and sign off on the following:


We require that samples gowns are paid for IN FULL at the time of purchase. We do offer a service to have the gown cleaned for you at an additional charge. If you choose to have the gown stored here until your alterations begin, a $50 storage fee will be incurred. Alterations are NOT included in the price of the gown. All headpiece, veil and accessory orders must also be paid in full at the time that the order is placed.


Each of our designers has a size chart. Specific measurements are required in order to determine which size category you fall into if you are ordering a new gown. Size is determined by the largest measurement, therefore alterations may be required. We recommend choosing a larger size if your measurements fall between sizes. It is much easier to take a garment in than to let it out.

We require that the bride and bridesmaids sign off on their size before an order can be placed. If a bridesmaid is not present at the time that the order is placed, she must email us a confirmation of her size before the order can be processed. We will not place a bridesmaid order until confirmed sizes for the entire bridal party have been received. Please note your size at the bottom of this form.


Our designers use the finest fabrics. Silk fabrications may contain variations and irregularities which are inherent in fine silk yarn. These characteristics enhance the natural beauty of the fabric and in no way should be treated as defects. Please note that fabric color may vary due to variations of dye lots and may not be the exact color that was selected from the color card or swatch.

In purchasing a store sample, you understand that this garment has been tried on by other brides. It may require cleaning and repairs. Gown cleaning is the responsibility of the client, although we do offer the service here. The gown should be thoroughly inspected before purchase.


The White Dress by the shore does provide alteration services. Alterations are not included in the price of the gown. They will be paid for separately after the gown arrives. Payment in full is required for alterations before the seamstress begins the work.

We recommend that your bridal alterations start a minimum of 4 months in advance of the wedding.


Sample gowns must be paid for in FULL at the time of purchase. Sample gowns can be stored at The White Dress by the shore after purchase for a $50 storage fee, breathable garment bags are $10, breathable garment bags are $10. If you are purchasing a gown over the phone/internet you recognize that you are purchasing the gown sight unseen and that all sales on samples are final.
