Finding Your Gown
At WLP we genuinely care about you, your wedding and your story! We seek to know each bride. We only work with the best designers in the industry, and we carefully choose our inventory to accommodate every type of bride, venue and budget. You’ll feel like you’ve shopped at tons of salons without actually having to! Our mission at White Lace & Promises is to offer the best experience, selection and sincerity for every bride. Buying your wedding gown should be the ultimate shopping experience for any girl, and we want to ensure that it is. Here are a few things to know as you prepare to start shopping!
At White Lace & Promises, we request appointments so that every bride has a dedicated and private appointment with our knowledgeable staff. You will be ensured a very personal and meaningful experience. Please coordinate with those whose opinions you value most and schedule your appointment a week or two in advance to ensure the time that is most convenient for you will be available. All gowns are of the highest quality, fit and fabrications; pricing starts at $1,450 with an average of $2,000.
It is a good idea to know your budget range 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 9 to 12 months prior to your wedding date to allow ample time for proper fittings and alterations. To order the gown, a 50% deposit is required and the remaining balance will be set up for automatic payments within 60 days of purchase.
Once your gown arrives you will be notified and you may set an appointment to come try it on! This is an exciting time because everything becomes even more real! At this time we will finalize ideas on shoes, hair accessories and any undergarments required.
Custom Fitting Experience
Once you have your shoes selected we will set your first fitting appointment. Our alterations are handled by one of our in house seamstresses. All fittings and appointments will be at White Lace & Promises. During the first fitting we will make any adjustments through the body of the gown, mark the hem and install the bustle. After this fitting there may be one or two more required to get the perfect fit. Your seamstress will schedule your fittings from this point on to ensure time to complete all of your custom alterations.
Your gown and all accessories may be picked up 1-3 days before the wedding. At your final fitting, your seamstress will schedule a time so that we have everything steamed/pressed and ready for you. Your gown and accessories are recommended for pick up the Thursday before the wedding. The final pick up will be scheduled by your seamstress at the time of your final fitting.
