• TWD Turns 10!

    Written by: Kristy

    I can hardly believe that we are less than one month away from the 10 year anniversary of The White Dress – December 1, 2021!  What once was a figment of my imagination – a hope and dream – has come into fruition and has evolved and grown in ways in which I never could have even imagined all those years ago!  It truly brings me such joy to go to “work” on a daily basis with an incredible team by my side, all while being able to create amazing memories for our brides – as they say yes to their dream wedding dress!

    So, as you may imagine, we have A LOT in store for December – social media contests, giveaways, in-store promotions and savings, a special window display – basically a month long celebration!   This is the THE post that gives you the break down of what you need to know to win, save, and celebrate with TWD!


  • August Promo: Refer a Friend and Share the Love!

    For the month of August, we’re adding a little something extra to our referral program!

    Being in the bridal business is bitter sweet. First we help our brides make one of the most exciting and emotional decisions of their wedding, then we see their faces when their dress finally arrives and they try it on for the first time. But once the fittings are over, the last we see from many of our brides are the joyful pictures on their wedding day. Unlike many other businesses, we’re not hoping for repeat customers!

    That’s why there’s nothing we love more than when our brides remember us when their friends are getting married. We’ve had a long-standing referral program in place, where if one of our brides refers another bride to us, we send them a little gift in the mail. This month, we’re extending our referral program to the friends they refer as well!

    Our referring brides will still get a gift in the mail, but for this month, if the referred bride says yes to a dress from our store, we will take $100 off her ordered gowns. (Sample sale wedding dresses and off-the-rack gowns are not included in the promotion.) And, to sweeten things a little more, we’re also sending both brides our signature T-shirts!

    Keep up with us on Instagram and Facebook for more updates!

  • Join Us for Our Sip & See Bridal Show!

    Don’t miss our special Instagram Live fashion show, July 9th, from 8–9pm!

    Getting ready to go dress shopping but aren’t sure what to look for? There’s no better way to get acquainted with the range of styles and designers out there than through a fashion show! And while we still can’t hold large events in person, we are delighted to be able to bring you our very own Sip & See bridal fashion show, which you can enjoy virtually from the comfort of your own couch.

    Out TWD-ettes will be modeling some of our most popular gowns, from a range of designers, and in a selection of styles and silhouettes. You’ll have a chance to see the way these gowns move, and can ask questions for more info. All you have to do is curl up, pour yourself a glass of wine, and tune in on Instagram!

    Here are the gowns we’ll be featuring, in case you want a sneak peek. 😉

    Princess Ballgowns: For when you want drama and a classic style.

    Ballgowns are a timeless silhouette, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find one that keeps up with the latest trends! Our Sip  & See will feature three ball gowns, each with their own special details. Lucia features exquisite beading in the bodice, Martha has long lace sleeves for that Kate Middleton look, and Marlowe comes in pink with a textured skirt that looks like a cascade of ruffles.

    Dresses pictured:

    • Lucia, Essense of Australia
    • Martha, Justin Alexander
    • Marlowe, Essense of Australia

    Boho: For when you want a free and easy dress, without compromising on the details.

    Boho styles continue to be a big trend in bridal, and we couldn’t be more pleased. We love how these gowns are light and airy without sacrificing any of the little details that makes a wedding dress special, like beading, clouds of lace, or breath-taking design elements. Above are three of our favorites, but several of the ones pictured below also fall into this style. And of course, there’s more where this came from at our store!

    Dresses pictured:

    • Rivera, Essense of Australia
    • Cairo, Essense of Australia
    • Emmaline, Essense of Australia

    Fit and Flare: For a silhouette with maximum curves.

    If you’re ready to knock ‘em dead, these dresses are real show stoppers. We love the vine lace on Cherise, and the lace back to Lolita is one of the most beautiful we’ve ever had in our store. And as for Cambria, the lace train on this gown is Instagram perfect.

    Dresses pictured:

    • Cherise, Allure
    • Lolita, Justin Alexander
    • Cambria, Allure

    Flowing A-lines: For a flattering silhouette with romantic charm.

    Finally, for brides who want to feel dreamy and romantic in their gowns, we will be showcasing several that will make you feel like an utter goddess. Bristol has the boho vibe we love while also featuring a classic fit-and-flare silhouette. Casia has a plunging sweetheart neckline that is set off by delicate lace straps, and Ellora combines a chiffon skirt with a beaded top for an almost Grecian look.

    Dresses pictured:

    • Bristol, Essense of Autralia
    • Casia, Allure
    • Ellora, Allure

    Spot a dress you like? Come in and try it on.

    Seeing our dress selection virtually can help you get an idea for what you want. But there’s nothing like trying dresses on in person to help you make up your mind. If you spot a dress that makes your heart sing—or even just piques your curiosity—schedule an appointment with us to come try it on. We’d love to give you a closer look!
