To the ladies at The White Dress by the shore, Thank you to all who made my bridal shopping experience so memorable, jubilant and fun! Beth, I was on cloud nine! My heart was touched. To experience such joy with my Mom and my best friend by my side- in your warm and enchanting boutique. And Abbey- you are so thoughtful! Thank you for making the process effortless, personalized and FUN! You are a gem! I look forward to seeing you all soon for bridesmaid dresses! BEST, SHARON


I was told to go to White Dress by the shore by two of my girlfriends after I got engaged and I am so thankful I did! The White Dress experience is more than finding the right wedding dress, it involves the creation of your wedding day beauty from start to finish. The store is beautifully maintained and the staff very knowledgeable of the gowns and patient with the brides. Although I found my gown on my first visit, each time I went back for a fitting I found something new to add to my day from shoes to hair pieces they have it all. I really felt like part of the white dress family and was very comfortable calling with questions and bringing many family members for my fittings. They are caring about their brides and their families and go above and beyond to make you feel amazing on your big day. Thanks White Dress! REVIEW~ WEDDING CHANNEL.COM

Thank you for making my wedding dress shopping experience so incredible! You and your staff are not only sweet and accommodating, but honest and talented as well. Before I came to The White Dress by the shore, wedding gown shopping was stressful, to say the least. I felt like no one was listening to what I wanted. Then I visited your beautiful boutique and was blown away at the attention paid to myself and my mother and future mother-in-law. I was so impressed with the knowledge and understanding that Sarah had. It was clear all of your staff wanted to understand my vision for our special day. Finding “the one” felt so simple and enjoyable. I am filled with gratitude toward you and your staff! I cannot wait to come back for my first fitting. Thank you again! ~ KELLI

Our experience purchasing a wedding gown from The White Dress for my daughter, Alicia, was wonderful in every way. From the moment we stepped into the store to search for a gown, to the final pickup of her wedding gown, we had nothing but good words to say. Our initial appointment was with Kelley. She was energetic, knowledgeable, and stuck to our budget. During one of my trips East, Alicia and I came in to look for jewelry to wear with her gown and dealt with Lindsay. She was exuberant, attentive, and presented some great ideas.  She gave us her undivided attention, and made us feel as though we were the only clients in the store. Alicia’s first fitting was with Penny. She was tireless in the many fittings to get it right and an absolute gem to deal with. Alicia enjoyed getting to you know you and attending the numerous events at your store. She felt so honored to have vendors who truly cared about her wedding day and did their part to make it as stress-free and memorable as possible. And special, beautiful and joyous it was! Many, many thanks for the attention to detail and tireless efforts by you and your wonderful staff. BEST REGARDS, SUE

From the moment I walked into the White Dress by the shore in Clinton, CT, I was treated like royalty. They even served champagne as I tried on gowns! The whole experience was magical. More importantly, they have a magnificent selection of designer wedding gowns to choose from and the most enthusiastic, helpful, professional staff I have ever encountered. Their service is amazing, and they provided a personal touch that I found sorely lacking in all the other bridal establishments I visited before coming here. The associates I worked with made helpful suggestions but never tried to push me in a direction I didn’t want to go, and they truly seemed to genuinely care about each and every bride they worked with. I would highly recommend The White Dress by the Shore without hesitation to any bride searching for the perfect wedding gown! If I could give them more than five stars, I would do so in a heartbeat.

There is more to say about this shop and its people than I can write here. The dresses range in style and price, the accessories are unique and beautiful (from earrings to undergarments), and every single person there is friendly, honest, and sweet. simply put- they know what they’re doing. Other things: they let you take as many pics as you want, bridesmaids dresses are great quality (I was in 3 weddings and got all dresses from there), and they offer champagne : ) Lindsay is a love, and I am so thankful to have had met her. And Beth Chapman is a gracious, intelligent woman…who you WANT to give business! Go there for the experience. Even if you don’t get a dress you will see what this part of wedding planning should be about. And if you do get a dress…you’ll leave feeling like family. good luck! REVIEW~THE KNOT

Many thanks for all of the support that you provided me during my “mother of the groom” moments.  Your graciousness and enthusiasm bubbled over and made me feel very special.  The entire presentation at The White Dress by the Shore is so classically warm, that one is embraced immediately upon arrival in your shop. I can truly say that there is no shop that offers the friendliness and care comparable to yours, to be found anywhere in the state. You are truly one of a kind and certainly leave a lasting impression on the lives that you touch. FONDLY, BECKY

There just aren’t enough words to adequately express how pleased and impressed we were with the professionalism, attention-to-detail, and quality service extended to us at each and every visit to your salon. We felt pampered and indulged every time we walked through the door. From Lindsay’s knowledge, expertise, and infectious enthusiasm to Josie’s patience, guidance, and remarkable skills, we could not have asked for a more delightful experience. In fact, it’s fair to say that shopping for the gown was almost as memorable and exciting as the big day itself! Once again, thanks for everything, and I hope you’ll enjoy seeing “the fruit of your labor” in the attached photos, which include some of my favorites from Lauren and Doug’s special day. There is no doubt that we will be recommending The White Dress by the shore to all of our family and friends! SINCERELY, KIM
