Bridesmaid dresses take 3-4 months to produce. We recommend placing the order for your bridesmaid dresses 5-6 months in advance of the wedding. We can often reduce the lead-time with a rush fee.

Now available, our Bridesmaid Wishlist! We developed this page so that brides can create an account after visiting the boutique and can then select the styles that they are interested in having their maids wear.  This is an easy way for bridesmaids to view, select and pay for their bridesmaid dress.

Click here to visit the bridesmaids shopping page, select the designer, select the style and click add to Wishlist. Once you have completed your Wishlist under ordering you can visit the bridesmaids Wishlist and click share to e-mail your bridesmaids your selections.

After you have selected your bridesmaid dress, please contact us to make sure we have the correct designer, dress style, color and fabric for your attendant’s dresses. We will also need a final list of your attendant’s names.

Following are the steps required to place your attendant’s order at The White Dress by the shore. The order will not be placed until we have measurements, a signed policy form and payment for all bridesmaids in the party:

step ONE
Each attendant needs to be measured professionally. If the attendants are not local and are unable to come into our boutique, they should print out the appropriate measuring chart and take it to a tailor or seamstress to be measured. They should then compare their measurements to the designer’s chart to determine the best size. Please note it is important to base the size on the largest measurement. If assistance is needed in determining the size, please call us at 860.669.4596.

step TWO
After the size has been determined, read, sign, and note the size of the attendant and the bride’s last name on the bottom of our Policy Form. This form can be completed and submitted
online below.

step THREE
Payment. We require payment in full for bridesmaid and flower girl dresses. Payment can be made online or over the phone at 860.669.4596.

step FOUR
We DO NOT SHIP dresses from our store. We do have a relationship with the local UPS store and can coordinate shipping through them. We are not responsible for any dresses shipped through the UPS store. Any questions regarding tracking information should be directed to them at 860.664.0066 or
