Pretty Post: Laura & John’s Nautical and Pinstripe Nuptials

We adored dressing Laura and her bridesmaids, and are so thrilled to finally feature her wedding images {captured by Iris Photography}! From Laura and John’s beautiful and intimate ceremony at her parents home, to their elegant reception at the Madison Beach Club – every single detail fell perfectly into place. Scroll down and you will see what we mean! We love how Laura used the pinstripe element of her gown as an influence for other details in the wedding. We especially loved helping her create a custom organza over skirt that she wore for the ceremony and took off for the reception to reveal a gorgeous pinstriped and lace fitted gown.

Get to know The White Dress by the shore

We hope that this post will help you to get to know The White Dress by the shore, as we think that to know us is to love us!

Owner, Beth Chapman established the boutique in 2004 with a sincere to desire to create a memorable bridal shopping experience and environment for brides-to-be and their guests. Over the years we have set ourselves apart not only through our dedication to customer service, but for the unique services that the boutique has to offer.  Below are some of the boutique’s nuances that help to make The White Dress by the shore truly special:

 

 

The White Dress by the shore is situated in an antique home that was built in 1763.  When the boutique opened in 2004 it only had two fitting rooms and was contained to the first floor of the building.  In 2008, the boutique expanded to the second floor of the building and now the main boutique houses 5 fitting rooms.  Each room is private and allows the bride and her guests to have their own individual space.  We name each of our fitting rooms the name of European cities, so when visiting us, you can be whisked away to Paris, Versailles, or Nice!

Situated behind the main building is a renovated barn that we affectionately call Chic by the Shore. This sweet building houses our bridesmaid collections.  We are the only boutique in Connecticut that offers a completely separate space for bridesmaid shopping.  For brides looking for a truly unique experience, we offer the Bridesmaid Soiree.  During a soiree, a bride and her bridal party has exclusive access to Chic by the Shore.  For two hours they can try dresses to their heart’s content while sipping mimosas and nibbling on cupcakes.  At the end of the appointment, each maid will receive a discount on their dress purchase and a swag bag.
