We recommend placing the order for your bridesmaid dresses 5-6 months in advance of the wedding to ensure a timely delivery and to leave time for alterations. We can often reduce the lead-time with a rush fee. Following are the steps required to place your attendantâs order at The White Dress by the shore. The order will not be placed until all of the 4 steps have taken place: step ONE SIZING. Each attendant needs to be measured professionally. If attendants are not local and are unable to come into our boutique, they may visit a local tailor or seamstress to be measured. Please take note of your measurements and call us at 860.669.4596 so we may determine the size that is best for you. Keep in mind that bridesmaid sizing may be different from your ready-to-wear size- this is perfectly normal; our stylists make the best size recommendation in order to ensure proper fit and minimal alterations. step TWO POLICY FORM. After the size has been determined, read, sign, and note the size on the bottom of our Policy Form- which can be reviewed here. This form can be submitted online, via fax or in person. step THREE PAYMENT. We require payment in full for bridesmaid dresses. Payment can be made over the phone at 860.669.4596 or in person at the boutique. *Keep in mind that during a trunk show, maids do not need to be present in order to receive the 10% discount- they can simply call in their payment over the phone during the trunk show dates. Measurements can be submitted at a later, designated time.* step FOUR ARRIVAL & SHIPPING. All gowns ordered through The White Dress by the shore arrive at the boutique and undergo a strict check-in process to ensure quality and accuracy to the original order. Following this process, we call the designated point-of-contact for the bridal party to alert her to the gowns arrival. 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 In order to have attendants dresses shipped, the bride must submit this form to us via email or fax.  We must receive the shipment authorization form completely filled out with all of the attendantsâ shipping and credit card information and all dresses will be shipped at once. The completed form can be submitted online here. Give us a ring for any additional questions in regards to bridesmaid shopping, sizing, payment and ordering at 860.669.4596.
