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.
Flower girl dresses take the least amount of time to produce, as the designers understand that little girls grow! We recommend placing the order for flower girls 3-4 months in advance of the wedding, depending on the designer.
After you have selected your bridesmaid dress and flower girl dresses, 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 all of the 4 steps have taken place:
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.
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 submitted online below.
Payment. We require payment in full for bridesmaid and flower girl dresses. Payment can be made over the phone at 860.669.4596.
If you do not live locally or live out of state we can have the dress shipped to you. Please text your name and shipping address to 860.552.2054. We will process the shipping label and a payment request will be sent to you via text. Dresses will be shipped via FEDEX GROUND for $25.00. If you need the package to be signed on delivery the cost will be $35.00. Dresses can also be shipped overnight or shipped internationally, please contact us promptly if necessary.
