The White Gown was the last of many dress shops that I visited on my search for the perfect gown. I am terrible at describing what I want in the perfect wedding dress, but they were able to pull the 2 BEST dresses for me in the first go! I could not even decide which one I loved more, they both felt like the PERFECT one for me! Needless to say, I loved how they listened to what I wanted!

This was the second bridal salon that I visited and I loved every moment of this experience. It is located in DUMBO Brooklyn and it has a very personal feel to the store. You are placed in your own room where your guest sit in your personal room as you try on dresses. The woman that assisted me was sooo helpful and never made me feel pressured in anyway.

I bought my dress over 1.5 years ago and my helper was Emily! I love love love Emily. If you want to find beautiful dresses and have a pleasant experience, this is the place!

I am a bride that was not truly excited to go wedding dress shopping. I am not your typical girly girl and have not dreamed of my wedding dress since I was a little girl...I was not sure how comfortable I was going wedding dress shopping in New York wedding gown shops and boutiques!

I contacted The White Gown to make an appointment and from that initial phone call they put me at ease. I made my appointment and before they got off the phone with me they just let me know that they were having a clearance sale that Thursday and Friday. I was originally not going to go to the sale but decided to stop by on my way to work.

I ended up trying on some of the dresses and everyone at The White Gown was amazing! They were so helpful in directing me in to the different styles they had available and what I had in mind. The sales women helping me brought over a dress that was not exactly what I thought I wanted but she thought it would look good on me. The dress zipped up and looked amazing and I fell in love! The sales woman was so amazing and helpful since I was there by myself...
The manager came over and saw me in the dress and brought over a sash that was absolutely perfect with the dress...the sash was not on clearance but the manager gave it to me on clearance because she thought it was so perfect together.

As I was leaving still in shock they helped me through timing on the few alterations that I would need (bustle, enhancing the sweetheart neckline). Once it was time for the alterations they were just as wonderful and responsive.
The element of customer service that sticks out to me the most is how wonderful and down to earth they all were. I was slightly intimidated shopping for a wedding dress in NYC. The White Gown were friendly, profession, and you can tell that every single one of them is passionate about helping the bride look absolutely beautiful on their wedding day.
I would recommend them to any bride!

This was actually the first shop I went to when looking for my wedding gown. At the time, this place was located in DUMBO, but they have since moved to midtown a few blocks from Grand Central. At first, I was not looking forward to trying on numerous gowns before finding THE ONE. Luckily, the staff was very attentive and listened to all my "wants" and needs. My best friend and I were shocked to find the dress during my first visit!

If your looking for a unique dress at a bargain price... go to the White Gown. You won't regret it!

I bought my dress from The White Gown and got it altered there as well.

I loved my dress shopping experience. I was so nervous and self-conscious going into it, but Emily was amazing to work with -- super friendly, patient, and never pushy. She also had a great eye and brought out some dresses in styles that I never would have considered on my own. In fact, I ended up purchasing one of those "try this and see" dresses.

For alterations, Slubia was also great to work with. She was very knowledgeable and with her experience working on all types of dresses, she was able to give me some suggestions on alterations (what to do about cups vs bra, for example).

My dress turned out lovely and the whole process was so enjoyable. Many thanks to The White Gown!

From the moment I first walked in, I knew I would be able to find "my" wedding dress. I showed them some photos of dresses I liked, described the look I was going for, and the budget I was trying to stick with, and they quickly brought dresses that fit my description perfectly. Dress after dress, they let me take my time in seeing myself in it, seeing the different ways to style it to be my own, and how to make it look perfect for me. The dress I chose was everything I imagined I would look like on my wedding day, and the in house fittings made the process of getting it ready for the big day easy and seamless. I knew it was a hit, by the look of my husband's face when he saw me in it for the first time, and from all of the compliments I got from my guests. I wish I could get married again just so I can try on more dresses there!

The White Gown listened to what I was looking for and brought me dresses to try on that were an array of prices, but none of which went over my budget. I did not feel one speck of pressure to raise my budget in order to get what I wanted, like some other places out there. I ended up with the most perfect dress for myself. It was an enjoyable experience working with the staff and getting my dress altered too!

Emily was my sales person at this shop. She was FANTASTIC! She made the experience warm and fun for my sisters and I- she was great! However, after purchasing the gown, things went south. I was told Id be contacted to set up my fitting appointments...I never was and finally I had to call them 11 wks before the wedding just to get the process started which resulted in me having to move MY schedule around to take whatever appointments THEY had left. This resulted in me having appointments practically on top of each other. During all this, they were in the process of moving from DUMBO to midtown and didnt do a great job notifying us of this. Amanda was the alterations manager there and she was another bright spot to my experience as she too was awesome and worked so hard to be flexible (she even came in on her day off for my final fitting) and did a great job with my gown. The desk staff however were short and unapologetic when calling a day before I was due for my final fitting to cancel (I am a Phila. area bride that had to coordinate these NY trips) and haphazardly reschedule- again at THEIR convenience. The new site is a wee bit sterile as opposed to the original site's (Jay st) warm and homey feel. AGAIN...Amanda and Emily were amazing, its because of those ladies I gave 5 stars for Quality of service and responsiveness.

I did not get my dress here (I'm SUPER picky) BUT still wanted to say how great this place was. From the second I arrived, Marie was very nice and very helpful. She chose gowns that flattered my figure and were within my price range. She even chose a couple of dresses that I wouldn't have thought to look at but I liked that as it helped me see beyond my preferences. Overall, I had zero issues with this place from making the appointment to trying the gowns on. Everyone was absolutely fantastic!

So much better than a warehouse experience, we loved working with Emily and the staff at The White Gown. We were at their cute little boutique in Brooklyn (I believe they moved), and enjoyed the entire process. Our daughter knew what she wanted, tried on other options, and though she didn't find the exact dress she was looking for, found one that was made by the same designer and looked exquisite not only in the boutique but on her wedding day. The whole process was fun, easy, and professional. Emily wrote our daughter a personal note after our visit - who does that any more? It was the touch of a classy boutique, and I loved it. I hope their new location gives the same boutique vibe - truly a wonderful experience.

The White Gown in Dumbo, Brooklyn was a great place to find my wedding dress. After going to a few other bigger boutiques, I really liked the small, intimate feel of The White Gown. The dress I ended up going with from there was absolutely perfect for my wedding, I felt like my consultant really understood what I was going for. I received so many compliments on my dress and many people wanted to know where I found it. I definitely recommend checking this place out if you are looking for a wedding dress in NYC.

I bought my dress here and I am so happy I did! I am from out of town, but it was never a problem for them to ship me my dress and never complained that I was not getting my fittings done in-house. They have a lot of dresses to choose from and they are all at a reasonable price.

I suggest looking at their website before you go and browsing through the designers they offer... thats what I did and I knew exactly what dresses to try on when I walked in the store.

They were extremely helpful, very responsive, and shipped my dress quickly. Two thumbs up!!

LOVED THEM!

I went to David's bridal, RK bridal, etc.... And a friend suggested I go to the White Gown because that's where she got her gown. I was hesitant because they're a small boutique and I thought a bigger place with more variety would be better. Wrong! I told my associate what I thought I was looking for and ended up getting the 2nd dress she brought me.

THEN, my dress came back way too big. I ended up getting my alterations done there and LOVED the way she made my dress fit me. And they were fast with it too!

Highly recommend.

I live in Virginia but had a weekend trip planned to New York last fall, so I wrote to the White Gown to make an appointment while I was in town. Although the salon is difficult to get to from Midtown (long Subway ride or expensive town car rental), it was worth it. The salon is pretty and neat, and I loved that we had a private fitting room big enough to fit my mom, our saleswoman, me and all of the dresses so I didn't have to try them on in front of a crowd. My saleswoman was AMAZING -- she made me feel completely comfortable and had great tips on what to look for. She also pulled several dresses based on what I pointed out in their book, as well as several from the trunk show they were holding at the time. I tried on 2 or 3 gowns that I thought I would like, then ended up falling in love with a gown that wasn't even in my preferred style. The White Gown found a gorgeous belt to make the dress even better, placed my order for the dress, and had the dress shipped to me in Virginia when it arrived so that I wouldn't have to commute to NYC for fittings. Although I didn't use The White Gown's alterations service, I can attest that their shopping, ordering, and mailing services are outstanding! They were very fast responding to all of my (many) emailed questions (who isn't nervous when their wedding gown is being shipped?), made sure we got electronic receipts of everything, and gave us the tracking info for the package so we knew exactly when to be home to sign for my dress. Everything went perfectly, and the dress arrived in perfect condition (hardly any wrinkles even!). I couldn't have found a better salon to buy my wedding gown from. Thanks for a wonderful experience White Gown!

The salon is pretty and neat, and I loved that we had a private fitting room big enough to fit my mom, our saleswoman, me and all of the dresses so I didn't have to try them on in front of a crowd. My saleswoman was AMAZING -- she made me feel completely comfortable and had great tips on what to look for. She also pulled several dresses based on what I pointed out in their book, as well as several from the trunk show they were holding at the time. I tried on 2 or 3 gowns that I thought I would like, then ended up falling in love with a gown that wasn't even in my preferred style. The White Gown found a gorgeous belt to make the dress even better, placed my order for the dress, and had the dress shipped to me in Virginia when it arrived so that I wouldn't have to commute to NYC for fittings. Although I didn't use The White Gown's alterations service, I can attest that their shopping, ordering, and mailing services are outstanding! They were very fast responding to all of my (many) emailed questions (who isn't nervous when their wedding gown is being shipped?), made sure we got electronic receipts of everything, and gave us the tracking info for the package so we knew exactly when to be home to sign for my dress. Everything went perfectly, and the dress arrived in perfect condition (hardly any wrinkles even!). I couldn't have found a better salon to buy my wedding gown from. Thanks for a wonderful experience White Gown! Read less

I went to a sample sale and found an amazing deal. The staff was incredibly helpful and the seamstress was excellent. I wish I had waited a little longer for my final fitting because I lost weight (as brides do I suppose) and wish my bodice had been taken in a little bit.

I could not have been happier to find my dress at the White Gown in Dumbo. Coming to this small, intimate boutique to find my dress and then for fittings was one of the most fun parts of the wedding planning process. Nicole really took the time to listen to me and understand what I was looking for and focused on showing me dresses that stayed within my budget.

I picked my dress from a sample sale the store was having. I had completely different styles of dress that I liked and was having difficulty making the decision. The staff was nice and helpful and took her time to let me think of the wedding I am picturing. Finally I picked a gorgeous dress with full beads work on the bodice that needed a lot of alterations. The seamstress at the store has outstanding skills and fitted the dress with all the beads work adjusted into my size. It was the perfect dress the I wished for.

I had tried on 3 dozen dresses before I got here, and this was going to be the last store I tried. And it sure was. After speaking with me for a bit, Erica really got to understand what I wanted and didn't want my dress to be. And the first dress she brought me was "the one". I still have people, strangers even, telling me that my dress was the most beautiful dress they'd ever seen. And it really was. I wish I had gone there first! I did not have my dress altered here, for a few reasons, and I'm really glad I didn't. Let's just leave it at that. Otherwise, the girls were excellent and super knowledgeable.

I ordered my dress from The White Gown and was really impressed with the service I received. They have a unique way of making you feel very special. They have time to listen and understand you and I cannot recommend a visit to see them highly enough. Keely, in particular was really great and made the whole experience very special. I have to admit I was apprehensive about finding THE dress but Keely made me feel so comfortable and helped me find the style that was right for me. The service was fantastic and compared to the other shops I visited, The White Gown was by far the best. If you want to have a great experience finding the right dress, I really recommend The White Gown.

I traveled all the way to Brooklyn for every fitting (I live in DC) because that is where I happened to find the perfect dress. I could have bought it somewhere else but one of the sales ladies (Erica, I believe) had helped me pick it out. I was set on an all lace dress but she introduced me to my beautiful lace/chiffon combo dress. I had also read that the seamstress was great and she definitely did turn out to be.

This is a great wedding dress boutique. I was looking for a reasonably priced dress (less than $1500) and this place had a large selection. Not only are there affordable gowns, the White Gown looks like a nice high end boutique. The space is really nice and the dressing rooms are quite large. Coming here, you're guaranteed to get a really good wedding dress shopping experience. Erin helped me find my gown and she was wonderful. Really helpful and not pushy at all. Everyone in the place has a very calm air about them which is very soothing. They were really good about helping me book my appointments, sending me reminders, and accommodating to my schedule. Overall great place and I'm very happy I bought my dress from them.

Wish I wouldn't have wasted my time because once I saw their selection the quality was above and beyond other shops I visited. Thank you for all!

I always wanted to go to a bridal boutique rather than a David's Bridal for my wedding gown so when I finally got engaged I searched around and found The White Gown! Being from Brooklyn made my experience more enjoyable knowing I bought my wedding dress from a Brooklyn Boutique. The location is great. It was the first boutique I went to and I really enjoyed all the attention the staff was giving me and my sister when we came for our appointment from the first time I stepped foot in The White Gown till I picked up my dress before the wedding. They were so knowledgeable when it came to designers that made me so confident when explaining what style I wanted. I bought my veil there as well and I definitely couldn't be more happier with the service your staff has provided me!!! I would recommend them to everyone of my friends and family. My seamstress Shioban was amazing. She fit my dress to my body so well that it looked like my dress was made just for me! All NYC brides should check out The White Gown. You won't be disappointed!

I purchased my dress from the White Gown in Brooklyn a year before the wedding. When I went back to have it fitted I wanted a few major alterations done to it- train removed and some of the "pouff" taken our of the hips. They were very accomodating about this and at the 2nd fitting I was very happy with the way the dress looked. I was told that all that needed to be done was the hem finished up and I would be able to take the dress with me at the 3rd fitting. Because of the hurricane I was unable to make it for a 3rd fitting before the wedding and the dress was shipped to my wedding destination. However, when i opened the bag the lace was ripped and the hem was jagged and unfinished. I had to take it to a dress maker 2 days before the wedding to try to use fishing line to fix the lace. Not only was the hem unfinished, but it was still a few inches too long. I spent the whole night stepping on my dress. The wedding was absolutely magical, but getting my dress from the white gown was my only regret.

I'll admit I didn't go to that many dress shops before I went to The White Gown - maybe just a couple before that. But I really couldn't have been happier with my experience there, which was much better than at the other shops I went to. First off, I was on a budget. Siobhan, who helped find my dress, never brought me a dress over my budget. I really appreciated that. Everywhere else I had been, I was shown dresses well over my budget, and they acted like my budget was too low. I was extremely impressed with the number of dresses they had that were both in my budget and in the style I wanted. It seems like a small, intimate shop (another plus), but the selection was great. Siobhan was very patient, listened to my feedback, and just kept bringing more dresses. In the end, I got a dress that I loved that was well below my budget, but looked like it cost a lot more money. TWG also did the alterations, which came out perfectly. I highly recommend the White Gown.

I had a wonderful experience at the White Gown. They had a wide range of options for being a smaller boutique. I found my dress after trying on about 3 others. The staff is extremely kind and calm as the whole process of finding a dress can be nerve-wracking. I had to have my dress shortened and have some boning put in the bodice. All the alterations were done well and on time. I should also say that I had lace work on my gown which had to be moved and altered and the seamstress did such an incredible job, the dress didn't look as if it had been touched at all!
I'm almost sad I don't have an excuse to go back anymore!

The staff is wonderful and I ended up buying a second dress (and the only one I wore at my wedding) because they were so kind and helpful. Their seamstress is an absolute dream. She knew exactly what to do for the construction of my dress, helped me find a place to buy the undergarments I needed, and made everything fit perfectly. She was even able to custom design a veil to match my dress and was flexible in the price for me!

I was very pleased with my gown. The seamstress was amazing. The staff was generally very helpful and friendly. It was clear that they had a definite interest in making the bride happy. This is a very small boutique, so there were times when I couldn't get ahold of them, or they weren't open when I stopped by (they are by appt. only). For a sometimes jittery bride, that wasn't ideal. But the personal attention and friendliness during appointments made up for this. They were also very good about working with me on appointment times to accommodate my work schedule. The value was also great.

I was very pleased with my gown. The seamstress was amazing. The staff was generally very helpful and friendly. It was clear that they had a definite interest in making the bride happy. This is a very small boutique, so there were times when I couldn't get ahold of them, or they weren't open when I stopped by (they are by appt. only).

I bought my dress here. The staff and seamstress were very helpful and professional. My only issue with my dress is that its American bustle kept breaking. I actually prefer French, but we agreed American looked better for this particular dress. Not sure if it was the weight of my dress or not. They taught me how to bustle which was very straightforward, but as soon as I started really moving on the wedding day the button popped. So we kept moving the bustle up. Lost 4 buttons all night. I ended up holding my train most of the time. Seems like something should have been anticipated by the shop.

The dress I have ordered was very well taken care of. The seamstress was amazing.
They did not call me when the dress came, I had to call to ask. When I went for 1st fitting no one informed me that they have changed the address. I think that they should pay more attention to costumers.

The White Gown is a small boutique with a fairly small collection of dresses, but what they have really spans the gamut. I got my dress from one of their sample sales (sign up for emails) and it was a steal! Everyone thought I paid much more for it than I actually did. I worked with the same woman from the first day through the final fitting which was a great feeling. She clearly knew what she was talking about and was very honest when I asked her about how different things fit.

They're a small shop so sometimes it's hard to call and get an answer, but they're good about returning calls. I will miss seeing them every few months.

Five stars all around for the White Gown - they were fabulous from start to finish.

I'm not a Kleinfeld's kind of girl, and didn't have a $5,000+ budget for a wedding dress. It was no problem at the White Gown - they found plenty of styles for me to try that were well within my budget with absolutely zero judgment or nudging upwards on the price point. I definitely didn't feel the same condescension that I felt at several Manhattan boutiques - the associate Erica was friendly and offered helpful suggestions without a hint of snootiness or upselling.

The alteration process was also seamless (pun unintended!). The White Gown always sent confirmation emails to remind me about the visits, and I had 3 in total to take in the sides, put in bust cups, and sew in a French bustle. The seamstress was awesome and I actually looked forward to seeing her each time I went in! I was really impressed by her talent and enthusiasm for making my dress look great.

Overall every part of my experience at the White Gown was great and I would definitely recommend them!

My mother and I both purchased our dresses from the White Gown, and had alterations done there. The shop has a wonderful intimate, cozy feeling with a friendly staff (my consultant Emily was great), and a small but well chosen selection of dresses.

Alterations went off without a hitch and our dresses fit us perfectly!

Finding and deciding on my gown at this boutique was one of the most special experiences of my life. The dress I had decided on was the very first one I tried on! (I made my final decision after trying on several others at various locations of course - but finally circled back to my favorite gown). The staff was very inviting and accommodating. I was always happy when I walked in the door, from the first time I went in to browse, to the final alterations appointment. They have a great selection, and very kind attendants who will help you find exactly what you're looking for.

The White Gown is a cool, down home bridal salon. It's a small, quiet and peaceful place to shop. The bridal consultants are young, hip women. There are no gimmicks and no pushy sales tactics. It was a pleasure shopping for my daughter's gown there. And the seamstress was fantastic! If your looking for a chill shopping experience, the White Gown is the place. It was so worth the trip to Brooklyn from Westchester!!

Folks, I looked good. I looked damn good in my wedding dress. The pictures I've seen so far don't even do my gown justice, IMO. I have Erica and Siobhan to thank. I walked into this dress shop a few weeks after getting engaged and although I could picture almost every aspect of our wedding, I had a huge mental block on the dress. I had some ideas of what I didn't want (sequins, ballgown) and was pretty sure I wanted lace - and by the way can it look vintage and fun and modern? This was no short order. The first dress Erica had me try on was the dress I bought that day. And Siobhan's amazing talent for taking my dress to the next level (adding removable straps, putting in a sweetheart neckline, widening the hips so it would lay just right as I stood, plus many, many other changes). Ladies - thank you for making me feel and look perfect!

To make a long story short, I flew in from Afghanistan and had no dress 10 days before my wedding. The day we went to the White Gown was rainy, cold, and miserable- which fit my mood exactly. The receptionist wasn't very enthusiastic when I explained why my budget was $500 (I already bought a dress which was ruined- another long story) and that I needed a dress TODAY. So, when I met my consultant, I was pretty disinterested and basically said “Look, here’s my situation and I don’t think you can help me so let’s not waste our time.” Emily patiently invited us to the fitting room, asked me some questions and went to find a dress. Still skeptical, I was stunned when Emily walked in with six dresses, all gorgeous, all in the style I asked for. WOW. And because I was getting married in 10 days (in Arizona, mind you), they were able to sell me a floor sample and a veil. Total cost $512.

Although the dress itself was beautiful, I give full credit to Emily. She’s a rock star. I don’t even know how she came back with six dresses because I’m not a person who fits into everything easily. She spent time helping me in and out of the dresses, gave her honest opinion on which dresses were flattering, etc. When I finally chose my dress (can you imagine that I even had choices?!), she went over the dress with me, showed me the flaws that i didn't even see and told me which areas I had to get my seamstress to fix and which areas to point out to the dry cleaner. I left the White Gown feeling awesome. I highly recommend the White Gown (and Emily) to anyone looking for a dress, although i don't recommend waiting until 10 days before your wedding. A big thank you to the White Gown and to Emily!!

Loved this place. It was recommended to me by a friend, and found my experience to be just as great as hers. I had a different idea of what I wanted when I arrived to try on gowns, but the sales associate pulled a variety of gowns that offered that drapey, chiffony look I wanted, plus some in different silhouettes that she thought would look good on my body type with that same romantic aesthetic. The gown I ended up choosing was one of her picks - I loved it! She was also great at dealing with my opinionated mother who accompanied me :) The ordering and fitting process was easy, breezy, and I loved that they sent email reminders for my appointments. 100% recommended!

The owner, John, is wonderful and his biggest priority is making the bride happy and feel beautiful. They had the cutest space in DUMBO behind REBAR, which I enjoyed going to - such a cool funky space. They have since moved, and I haven't seen the new place, but I'm sure it is just a beautiful.

I purchased my gown at one of their sample sales, a great deal! It was a very classic looking dress (similar to ones for $2-3k I've seen elsewhere) for ~$600. Do ask about specifics for alterations when you buy though. Because I am short and the beadwork at the bottom of the dress would have been destroyed by a normal hem, the dress had to be altered from the waist - a lot of work and thus very expensive, which was a surprise I didn't expect.

Their seamstress did an AMAZING job and they worked with me to make sure everything was taken care of. Do your homework on alterations that would be needed and pricing before deciding on a sample - that way there are no unexpected surprises, but know that if you do find a gown you love here, you'll be in very good and caring hands.
