Placing an Order
It is a good idea to know your budget as you may find your gown at your first appointment! Once you find it - go for it!! It will only get more confusing and overwhelming to continue looking! It is ideal to order your gown approximately 6-8 months prior to your wedding date to allow ample time for proper fittings and alterations. To order the gown, a 50% deposit is required but the balance is not due until the dress comes in. Once you purchase your gown you are welcome to take photo's in the dress and you can request a swatch of fabric from the designer- this can be helpful for planning wedding party attire, selecting shoes or even designing your bouquet!
Once your gown arrives you will be notified and an appointment will be set for you to come and try it on! This is an exciting time because everything becomes even more real! Your balance is due at this time prior to altering the dress further.
Once you have come in to initially try on the gown you can set up an alterations appointment. Our alterations are handled by Thea Yeatman of Woven Streams Couture, however all fittings are held here at The White Dress. During the first fitting we will make any adjustments through the silhouette, mark the hem and design the bustle. You should bring your shoes, undergarments and accessories to all appointments. After this fitting there may be one or two more required to get the perfect fit. We always ensure to do a final fitting 2-3 weeks before the weddings date to ensure perfection.
Your gown and all accessories may be picked up 1-3 days before the wedding or we can arrange to drop it off for you. We will schedule a time in advance so that we have everything steamed and prepared perfectly and for you.
