I had the best experience at Shades of White Bridal. I had a month to get a dress so at that point there was no time for ordering one, I had to pick one off the rack. But after speaking with Dawn (the owner) she reassured me that wouldn’t be a problem. She is so sweet & attentive. Her staff made everything so special the day of my appointment and I ended up finding the perfect dress for my big day. She went above and beyond & helped me find a bow tie and suspenders for my ring bearer (I could not find one the right color that would fit him). The women at Shades of White are an absolute dream to work with. I recommend everyone I know who is getting married or going to a formal event to go there!

Thank you for making me feel valued and important! I felt that you all listened intently to the vision of my wedding dress and worked hard to try and bring that alive! Such a great experience for such a fun time!

I can not tell you enough things about this boutique! Picking out your wedding dress can be one of the most stressful moments and Dawn and her team made it so fun! She was so helpful and truly made the experience so great and easy going! Definitely recommend this bridal boutique.

Amazing experience!! The girls were so helpful and kind. They really listened to what I was looking for and what I felt comfortable in to find me the perfect dress!! I could not have asked for a better experience, especially with my mom coming in from out of town. Even in the middle of preparing for the hurricane they squeezed me in before they closed!! worth every penny!!
I came to Shades of White on a whim because my dad had mentioned it to me one weekend. What can I say, Daddy knows best, because I found my dress! I went with my Mom and brothers girlfriend and was not expecting to find anything. I ended up falling in love with the second dress I tried on at Shades of White. This was my 3rd store I had been to, and they were the first ones to listen to my wishes. I couldn’t thank them enough for being so accommodating, sweet and making me feel so happy.

Let me just start by saying that the owner of Shades of White, Dawn, is one of the most kind and amazing women I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting! I went to several other bridal shops before discovering SOW. Most of the other shops I went to were either rude or very high pressure. There was none of that at SOW. I tried on several dresses and quickly found a designer (Kitty Chen) that I was in love with. I found a dress on their website and Dawn was able to hunt down a sample for me to try on. She even went out of her way to let me come try it on after hours. Of course, it was the one and I ended up ordering it. Not only did Dawn help me find my dream dress, she also helped me with my bouquet. I’m not sure what it would have looked like if I had to make it all by myself! She definitely saved the day on more than one occasion! I am forever thankful for discovering her shop and making a great friend in the process! You can tell that she truly has a passion for and loves what she does! It was almost impossible for me to narrow it down to the few photos I’m attaching with this review! That dress, the train, the bouquet, it was all so perfect!

Dawn and Brittany helped me and they did a wonderful job! I had fun and really enjoyed the experience! Even though I didn’t end up getting my dress at SOW I would definitely recommend going to SOW. The girls were very nice and helpful! Thank y’all for all the help!

I am in Awe. EVERY SINGLE DRESS was gorgeous and better than anything I had tried on from other stores. I have been to many bridal appointments myself and with friends and have never been treated as well as at Shades of White. The customer service and honesty of the staff is superb. They had my name on a sign outside of the store and when we pulled up which made my day extra special. They sat down and asked my preferences and sent me a survey beforehand getting to know me. They even had signs for my bridesmaids! When I bought my dress they helped me with payment options and gave me a goodie bag. I would buy from shades of white over and over again!

I had such a wonderful experience on Wednesday ! Brittany, Shae, and Donna were so sweet, welcoming , and accommodating. I’m such an indecisive person and they didn’t try to persuade or pressure me one bit. Even if I don’t purchase a dress from here I will be recommending Shades of White to everyone!

I loved Shades of White Boutique! They were so attentive with me and my guest. I loved having their undivided attention throughout my appointment. They were very helpful and understanding of my style as well as providing options with accessories and alterations. This was by far my best bridal boutique experience. I definitely recommend them and their prices are affordable.
~ Joseline Garcia
I’m so thankful I found this little shop! I had a horrible experience at a different store and didn’t know what I was going to do with three months until my wedding and no dress. The staff was amazing and all of them were so helpful. I was able to try on many different styles that I could purchase the same day and take home. I ended up finding a beautiful Pronovias dress which was the same designer as my previous purchase. I love it more than my first dress! I don’t know what I would have done if I wouldn’t have gone to Shades of White! Thank y’all so much for helping me find my dream dress and saving the day !

I loved my experience with Shades of White Bridal Boutique. From the moment my party and I walked in, I was greeted with quality customer service. They were very patient and kind with me and my bridesmaids. Michelle was amazing. She listened to what I wanted and what I wanted to avoid. They didn’t pressure me about making a choice or about the price tag. This was my very first time going wedding dress shopping and they made my first experience memorable, fun, exciting, and special. They didn’t hurry me up and allowed me to try on the same dresses several times to make sure I was sure about my decision.
I loved the dresses. I was unsure about what style I wanted and they pulled many different styles that would work for my body type, without making me feel overwhelmed with my choices. I definitely recommend this bridal boutique to any bride looking for great service and a beautiful dress.

Fantastic experience! The girls were so helpful and patient. Even when I tried the same dresses two or three different times!
~ Rachel H.
I had a wonderful experience there! The ladies where so pleasant and made me feel special and welcomed! I found my dress elsewhere but I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
~ Noemi S.
Thank you for all the assistance I received this weekend in selecting my wedding dress! Your staff is wonderful and the dress options available were beautiful and plentiful!! Would highly highly recommend Shades of White!!!
~ Beth S.
I truly can not say enough great things about this place! The staff was extremely nice, knowledgeable, and most importantly they truly cared about helping me find the perfect dress. It’s easy to see they love what they do! I went to two other places before here and they don’t even compare. Highly recommend!

Shades of White Bridal was, hands down, the best gown experience I had. I had gone to several other shops in the greater Houston area as well as looked around online. I love that they are a local business! They gave me a personalized experience! They had my name on a welcome board outside and listened carefully as I described my wedding. Their shop was small, which made it feel very intimate, but they had plenty of dresses! My party had comfortable places to sit and the shop honored my price range. Dawn and her staff were extremely helpful (getting on dresses is hard!) they also allowed me to try on several accessories with the dress I selected, even though I did not plan to buy any. Dawn was extremely helpful after I purchased as well. She helped me find a seamstress for alterations and gave some suggestions for dress cleaning. I highly recommend this local gem for finding your dream gown!
