Wedding gowns range from $2,500 – $12,000 depending on the designer. We have select options priced below this, but our focus is on luxury & couture labels.
Short & Reception Bridal looks range from $1000 – $1700
Shoes range from $300 – $400
Accessories & veils start at $30 and range all the way up to $2000
If you have your heart set on 1 or 2 dresses from a designer that we don’t carry in-store, we can usually get that gown temporarily loaned for your appointment. If it’s available, we will pay for 50% of all shipping / loan costs incurred to get that dress in for your appointment. We just require that brides pay the remaining 50% which will be credited towards your dress purchase at MaidenWhite. Shipping / Loan fees range from $100 – $300.
In a perfect world, the bride would shop and order their dress 1 year in advanced. At the least: plan on shopping for your dress 8-9 months before your wedding date. Beautiful, hand-made gowns take time! Production time for gowns can take anywhere from 4-6 months, and you’ll need to allot a couple additional months for alterations as well.
For brides with time constraints, rush orders are usually an option for an extra fee. Please inquire about specific gowns and rush availability.
We also have 1-2 sample sales per year when gowns can be purchased off the rack. This is a good option for brides who are working with tight time constraints.
If you’ve never been wedding gown shopping before, this might come as a bit of a shock: most bridal sample sizes in store are 10-12. While things rings true for us as well, we are constantly working to bring in sizes outside of this range, and even sometimes carry 2 sizes of our favorites. We carry some gowns in sizes 2-4 all the way up to 20-22. As bridal sizing often varies greatly from street sizing, check out our Standardized Size Chart as well as the individual designer page as a starting point.
Our stylists will work their magic to help you visualize what the final product will look like. We will then take your measurements and order a dress in the size best suited to you!
At this time, we are not offering in-house alterations. We are happy to give recommendations to tailors in town who are reputable and fully equipped to handle wedding dress alterations.
A trunk show is a sales event that MaidenWhite hosts with the collaboration of a designer to showcase many, if not the entire new collection of gowns. It’s a great way to see gowns that we don’t normally carry, so if you’re in love with a particular designer, booking an appointment during their trunk show dates is the best way to see the full spectrum of gowns. It’s additionally a great way to be the first bride to wear a new and exclusive style for your wedding, because trunk show collections usually aren’t available for in-store purchase until several months after the event.
We also also often able to offer a variety of discounts and/or purchase incentives during these events! Trunk show dates and availability are very limited because brides love to get in during these events, so if there’s one you’re eyeing attending, we suggest booking your appointment right away!
Check out this link to find out more about all of our upcoming events and trunk shows. And if you don’t see a specific one you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to ask us about it!
MaidenWhite generally hosts 2 sample sales per year. In order to make room for new, incoming collections, we host sales events where select floor models become available for off-the-rack purchase. We offer deep discounts on these gowns (this varies, but you can expect to find gowns that will be discounted anywhere from 20% – 60% and sometimes more)! Sizes generally range from 8-12 US (which equates to about 6-10 US street size) but occasionally we do have options outside of this size range. Sample sale gowns are sold in as-is condition.
This is a really great option for brides looking to get a discount, or who have tight time constraints that might require an immediate solution for a wedding dress purchase.
Yes. We want to make sure that you get the attention you deserve during this special time! In order to serve our brides with the best experience possible, our store is open by appointment only.
Standard Appointments cost $25, while some Trunk Show Appointments with more limited space cost $50. The appointment fee gets credited to your dress when you purchase during your appointment.
Appointment fees help us continue to provide the amenities that we do during your appointment.
If for whatever reason you need to cancel, we get it; things happen! If you are within 48 hours of the appointment start time, the charge is non-refundable. Since spots are limited, it’s incredibly difficult to fill on such short notice.
- Standard Bridal Appointment: You (the bride) + 5 guests or less. Dress pricing ranges from $2500 – $10,000 (with select options below $2500). This 90 minute appointment is the perfect time to find your YES dress! We offer a complimentary glass of champagne during the appointment, as well as provide robe & slippers for the bride.
- Shoes & Accessories Appointments: Already have your gown & just need to find the perfect accessories to compliment it? This appointment is for you! You may bring your wedding dress with you & put it on for a visual, but during this 1 hour appointment, you won’t be able to try on any other dresses.
We speak bride. Fluently. And providing brides with an unforgettable experience costs money. We’ll start you and your party off with a complimentary glass of champagne, and provide the bride with a robe & slippers for use during the appointment. Need a hair tie or bobby pins? We’ve got you. Pasties? Yep, got that too. Oh, and, because we know that you may not have worn your flesh-toned undies or brought shoes with you, we’ve got shapewear and other goodies that you can use too.
Luxe Appointment Packages start at $350.
Want to make a party out of your bridal gown shopping day? Our Luxe appointments are an excellent way we can offer an extra level of dedicated service that is truly unmatched.
During a 2 hour appointment, our bride and bride’s guest will have private access to the entire showroom! Let us pamper you with an assortment of celebratory drinks and snacks while we help find your dream gown. This is a great option for accommodating larger parties who want the full privacy and dedication of our salon’s efforts.
This appointment type cannot be booked online. Call, text, or email for further information.
We want all of our brides to feel as comfortable and beautiful as possible during the appointment. At MaidenWhite, we provide a fresh robe and a pair of slippers for you to wear. We recommend wearing flesh-toned undergarments. If you have any shapewear or undergarments that you plan to wear on your wedding day, bring those with as well.
As for footwear, if you’ve already picked a pair of shoes or have a pair that are the same heel height as what you’ll be wearing on the day of the event, bring those with you! We don’t recommend fitting gowns with them but once you’ve picked out your favorite dress and you’re ready to say “yes,” the shoes add the perfect touch to really capture the final look!
Should you choose to invite guests along for your gown shopping experience, we suggest bringing a small group of 5 or less guests who know your sense of style and will support the choices that you love! Having too many guests can often be distracting and overwhelming, especially if their sense of style doesn’t align with yours.
Remember–this is your special day, and choosing a gown that ultimately makes you look and feel your best will make your loved ones happy as well!
Absolutely. Your experience can often be enhanced by bringing a small entourage of your most trusted loved ones. Just ensure that your invited guests know your sense of style and will advocate for you choosing what you love most.
While we love a good party, we believe brides are best catered to during appointments with 5-6 guests or less. Our MaidenWhite Signature Suite can accommodate 5-6 guests including the bride. Our Semi-Private fitting suite can accommodate 3-4 guests.
We also offer Luxe Appointments which are a great alternative for larger parties looking to join for the experience!
As much as we love kiddos, we ask that you get a sitter for children under the age of 8 to ensure that all of our brides in the store have a peaceful & relaxing environment. We also have pink sofas that look inviting to jump on and many delicate breakables in the store that tiny hands might not handle very gently.
Outside food & beverage (other than water) is generally not prohibited, especially as many items can stain your hands and our gowns. We do offer a complimentary glass of champagne to you and your guests of legal drinking age. Should you have a specific champagne or non-alcoholic alternative you’d like to bring, we will do our absolute best to accommodate.
Our first bridal appointments are 90 minutes. This is the sweet spot: just enough time to try on gowns and narrow to your favorite one before saying “YES” to the one, but not so long that you’ll be overwhelmed and hangry. It happens to the best of us.
Shoes & Accessories appointments are 1 hour.
Luxe Appointments are 2 hours of uninterrupted time where you & your party will have the entire store to yourselves.
Appointments cancelled within 48 hours of the scheduled start time will be charged the full appointment amount.
Luxe Appointments get charged once we have confirmed our vendors’ availability and made our deposit with them. They are non-refundable at that point.
